The online discounts are now showing 60-65% off original price and in some cases more than that. I called the store back and he told me that those are the prices indeed that he received on the latest price sheet. No word on the additional in-store 30% off... he mentioned they will do it typically around holiday's if there still lots of inventory remaining. Suggested I check back again around July 4th holiday.

 

Anyway, I went ahead and ordered some of the items I didnt want to risk going out of stock.... came about 60% off. Not bad. 

 

+1  Just checked the website and the additional percentage off is reflected.  Some pretty good deals now, so get in while the gettin's good.

Kopped the last pair of Plainview boots in size 10, the A-2 and the type 2.  Ordered the A-2 and the type 2 in large and medium so I can keep whichever fits the best.

 

I fully expect the Plainviews to be cancelled because RL can't manage its inventory for shit.  Many times I've placed an order for the "last one in stock" and it turned out it'd already been sold but the website wasn't updated to reflect.

Pretty sure they have product measurements on the site.  Just go to the type 2 page and take a look.

 

Edit:  yep, see:

  •  
  • Size medium has a 25" body length and a 34½" sleeve length. Sleeve length is taken from the center back of the neck.

It can take 15 months for products to go from design to store, a window that Mr. Larsson hopes to narrow to nine months by having the design, merchandising, sourcing and marketing teams work together. He plans to test small batches of products that can be produced in eight weeks, and then quickly reorder best sellers—a strategy he used at Old Navy.

Rather than scattering resources across brands, he will focus on the high-end Ralph Lauren line and the lower-end Polo and Lauren brands that are the mainstay of department stores. 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.

Basically sounds like RLPL will stick around as a loss leader to give everything else a halo ($5000 suits made to help sell $10 pony-logo polos). The bulk of the company will probably be focused on making trendier Polo line items and basics, as well as lower-end brands, since that's where the bulk of the revenue comes from.

Between D&S and RRL, D&S fits the company's new strategy better.

Thanks for the citation. It might be splitting hairs, but I'm not sure I would infer from that quote that they're preparing to whack the label.

I don't think they're preparing to end the label. I think RRL just doesn't fit with the company's new strategy (there's more in the article) and it's likely that it'll get cut at some point.

The subline might be Ralph Lauren's pet project, but I assume he cares about the larger health of the company than a subline.

Not related to RRL but I can't help but think buying a 5 grand OTR suit is idiotic.  For that price you might as well go full bespoke.  I'm not even sure if RL offers that option or if it's just made to measure.

RLPL suits are actually more like $2500, so I'm exaggerating. Don't know what their MTM would be, but outerwear often nears $5,000.

I don't really get uber-high-end RTW suits either, but if the jacket fits well, there's no real reason to go bespoke.
