That fringed leather is pretty dope, though, nice catch.

Yeah I had the 2012 brown version but I wanted another black Jacket so the price I paid was a littl lower than it was on the site

dmagic what is your thoughts on the baseball jersey as far as fit and quality. I'm contemplating on scooping it up at full price as opposed to waiting on a sale.

IMHO, I think the RRL A-2 bomber is rad..I've been contemplating getting one (RRL or some other A-2 repro version - but new) and painting the back WWII style...something like one of the jackets below, but personalize it a bit...

 


I think the fit is supposed to be a little boxy.. I think the problem is wearing it enough to make it all worn and "awesome" looking ...

Yeah, now those are cool as hell.  I have an old double rider leather with a painted back that I found in a thrift store in San Francisco, so I can dig it.  

 

I just couldn't get behind the RRL A-2, though.  You're probably right in that it's supposed to fit boxy but the overall look just didn't work for me.

It depends how you want to wear it , I would say size up or try it on. Before you buy it . Quality is pretty good doesn't seem like it will stretch or anything like that . If your thinking about getting it now as opposed to waiting till on sale let me know . I got the 🔌

I really like the RRL A-2 and would have kept mine if it hadn't been too big for me. Loved the color of the leather.

I got the A-2 and the motorcycle jacket. I was close to keeping the motorcycle jacket but ended up sending it back. It just didn't quite do it for me.
Kept the A-2. It feels lest boxy than most others that style I've tried. But an A-2 is supposed to be boxy. Color is awesome.

I'm very intrigued/interested in these "canvas" pants posted for fall both in khaki and grey.  Is RRL canvas the same as "duck" canvas sold elsewhere or different?:

What size did you have?  I tried both a large and a medium, since depending on the cut I can go either way in a lot of RRL pieces.  The L A-2 was too baggy in shoulders and the M A-2 was too narrow in the torso/waist.  Combined with the general boxiness I just couldn't dial in the fit so I had to let them go.

 

My other RRL leathers are all mediums, which seem to work the for me with this brand.  Strangely, with RRL shirts I usually have to size up to a large.  Great brand but as many others have pointed out in this thread, the sizing can be wonky.

XS. It was boxy but the sleeves were the main problem — just way too baggy for my scrawny arms. If I had a leather tailor here I might have kept it and tried to alter it, but it was too expensive to keep if it wasn't perfect.

 

My slim denim jacket came in yesterday and I think I'm going to send it back. The shoulders are surprisingly wide and I am not a fan of the bright gold buttons.

 

I bit the bullet and pre ordered these. Very pricey but I actually like these more than the Kapital patched khakis and they're cheaper.

Why must there be so much indigo every season... I mean some of it is great (the indigo dyed leather jacket) but scrolling through everything, most of the pieces are blue -_-

Does anyone have or has anyone seen these navy officer's chino shorts? The description says the inseam is 7 inches, but I'm guessing that's a mistake and that it's actually 9 inches.

Anyone notice how Summer items are already 50% off on ralphlauren.co.uk? I never thought I would say this but I'm tempted to proxy with the current low exchange rate...

Also picked up this piece from the Fillmore store today for $89.00

http://www.ralphlauren.co.uk/product/index.jsp?productId=54194101

It's not on the US site so I almost missed it. Colors are much more muted in person. Metal buttons are a nice touch too...
