wow....key line from WSJ story:

"Smaller labels such as RRL, named for the Colorado ranch that Mr. Lauren owns with his wife, which sells selvedge denim, vintage apparel and other gear, will have to prove they are viable."

RRL retail pricing just isn't competitive.

For what the product is, I agree.  However their markup is so high that they must be making margins on a good portion of it.  If they simply control their inventory better I would think that RRL has a future.

Now I can irrationally justify all my purchases as collector's pieces. Or as charity to keep the brand alive. Don't let it die, gentlemen!

no kidding..the prices are high, but in light of what others are charging for similar pieces, not really...actually bargains.  I recently went to a St. Laurent store and they had a bunch of very similar stuff to RRL but 3x/4x the $$$$...granted almost all made in France and Japan, but I didn't see that big a difference in quality (I actually think RRLs denim is better)...

There's no value proposition for RRL. Other than deep sale or outlet stuff, I would rather just go to Visvim, Engineered Garments, or even Kapital. I am paying for design when I buy Saint Laurent, Margiela or other designer stuff, but it's also much more interesting...

Aside from a few pieces here and there, those brands really dont do it for me. RRL rly keeps my attention... Real McCoy's would be my alternative

Engineered garments arent as nice as rrl imo. Visvim is super expensive.
post #26094 of 27168
I am by no means a hardcore RRL person, but I really enjoy the pieces that I have. I was wearing a denim RRL work shirt today and it compares favorably to the ones I have from EG and Post O'alls. I also really like the RRL chunky knits and leather jackets. I hope the brand has a future within the RL complex.

Although I own a few pieces from Visvim, candidly, I don't get the cult like following it has and do not really understand the price points. Kapital is definitely a brand I would like to investigate.

Speaking of alternatives, I've been on the hunt from a good quality light blue chambray shirt, much like the waverly. Looking for something a little more slim.

Any good alternatives out there?

I have this shirt and it's definitely slimmer than the average RRL shirt: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=84546716&cp=11588650.12138271&ab=ln_men_cs_casualshirts&parentPage=family

Not sure how it compares to the waverly though .. Perhaps they are the same .. But compared to other RRL flannels and misc. shirts I have , this one fits "a bit" slimmer through the body.

I like this shirt and for whatever reason other people seem to like this one on me more than I do so I've been wearing often this past spring ... Looks good with the new black on black jeans ....

There was an RRL chambray shirt last year I was dying to kop to replace my withering chambray shirt I've had for years. I remember it had metal buttons and it sold out. Does anyone remember which one it was?
post #26098 of 27168
Also, what's the difference between a chambray and denim work shirt. Is denim just a thicker version of essentially the same type of fabric?

Not bad. My intent is not necessarily a work shirt rather, a light blue, lightweight chambray. And it does not necessarily have to be a RRL

Not quite. Denim has a diagonal (twill) weave, while chambray fabric has a plain weave. You can see the difference more clearly if you compare the undersides of each fabric to one another
