Problem solved (Click to show)

 

 

 

But in all seriousness,  How bad is it? U can use it as a layer piece or roll the sleeves a bit.  I have shirts I refuse to give up even though they are borderline made for alligators

You have buyer's protection with eBay. If the seller didn't inform you that the sleeves were shortened you may have a good case for a refund. No harm trying! 

 

I had something similar happen to me a few years back and eBay reimbursed me very quickly. If you have a good reputation, why not give it a shot?

 

What size is that shirt? And how long are the sleeves?

Since we don't have RRL store here in Philippines and my impulse buying starting to scratch me, I may need your help again.

If anyone who owns the matlock work shirt like http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=84547026&cp=11588650.12138271&ab=ln_men_cs_casualshirts&parentPage=family in Small size, can you share with me the actual measurements please? Thank you thank you :)

 

Glad to hear the forum has been helpful for you.

 

Did you get any help with the Matlock shirt yet? I own a Medium—perhaps you can use the measurements to make an educated guess. This shirt is fairly true to size, perhaps a little on the Large end of the spectrum. If you normally wear a Small in RRL the same size should work in this shirt.

 

Matlock measurements (Medium):

Chest (armpit to armpit): 21.5"

Shoulders (shoulder seam to shoulder seam): 18"

Sleeve (shoulder seam to cuff): 26"

Length (collar to hem, front & back): 32"

 

It's a fantastic shirt, by the way.

 

Good luck!

I've been trying it on over and over since I got home and I'll just keep it. Who knows when I'll see another one for sale without spending an arm and a leg. I also roll my sleeves 99% of the time anyway. It's just the thought of it that will bother me.

The listing said "Measurements:Pit to pit: 20 Sleeve: 23" so technically I should have checked but I never ever ever measure sleeves when buying or selling shirts especially RRL since I know my sizing pretty much.

I never even look at that measurement when buying, only pit to pit, length and shoulders. Now I guess I need to start. 99.9999% of the time this has never been an issue... of course it is now lol.

I suppose I'll grab the next one if and when that happens and sell this one.

For the Rummel Cords, did you end up going TTS, or is it viable to size down?

That sounds disingenuous. He should have disclosed it was altered. I totally would try to dispute this with him.

I would if there were any other mediums out there floating around, but with a jacket or the sleeves rolled up it's fine. Sitting at my desk at work typing the cuffs (hidden by a jacket) end about half way up my forearm frown.gif

Never thought I'd see the day where I wore, much less loved a pair of engineer boots. Murdocks paired with the carhart clydes

wearing them today ...:D

 

They fit me just as RRL jeans and chino's do - same size.  One down from my normal waist/pant size.

Sounds like an E-DUBS speciality - using ebay to flip used RRL items that were customized for a midget.

I've never been a jewelry/bracelet guy (besides watches). Took a chance on this on sale at Mr. P a while back. Surprised how much I like it.

Cool.

 

What's the price you paid?

post #25680 of 27164

interesting to see them use details across multiple pieces. I grabbed a shirt from Woodbury a couple months ago with what appears to be that same button
