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.

Really want to get those pants but I need to see what a real picture looks like . The inconsistency throughout the years between catalog photos and actual product has been too much for me .

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...

I bought that off the US site about a month ago.
It's a really great shirt.

Almost all of the size descriptions are way off. They would be better served by not providing measurements of any kind.

I am strangely drawn to these trousers. Perhaps because I enjoy seeing my wife driven to distraction by the sight of clothing that's been intentionally damaged. ;)

 

Would love to see some non-Photoshopped pictures of these when you get them!

It looks like they might not ship for over a month but when they show up I will post plenty of pics! I really hope they look good in the flesh. If I'm going to wear light colored pants with all this indigo I figured I might as well get some that are already distressed.

This is about the Levis+Pendleton collaboration and I am referring to the LEVIS® X PENDLETON® WOOL WORKSHIRT in particular, at the below URL. This is a Made in USA shirt cut from denim made out of 100% pure wool (I believe the fabric is imported, from wherever Pendleton sources theirs from). The fabric, the cut, the build quality, buttons, stitching, etc. on this shirt is just amazing. This is probably one of the best shirts I own now. Its Indigo but looks almost grey indoors. I just took it outside in the sun and I could see the Indigo. I am pretty sure this will fade really nice. The feel (or hand or whatever they call it) of the fabric is really luxurious. Of course this can only be worn in Fall/Winter and will be going into the closet for now, but it was a good deal so I bought it. The list price is $398 but its on sale for $149. And the other day, as levis.com does every few weeks, there was a 40% discount for every $250 spent. So I ended up paying about $90... a 77.5% discount on list. And its WORTH every penny. From a value perspective, this beats RRL hands down (and every single one of my RRL shirts, about 2 dozen, was bought on Sale).

 

All sizes are still available... i wish I had ordered two.

spoke to the associate at Bleecker (I think the one who appeared in last seasons look book) the other day who would be transferring to the west broadway store after that one shut down. They're indeed closing due to the increase in rent and i think just overall feel of the area which he said used to be a destination for unique items but is now just you're standard shopping experience. He also didn't seemed too concerned about the brand itself saying that he hasn't heard of any plans to shut it down and also acknowledged the fact that its Ralphs favorite brand and has personal attachment

That's good news. He's right: Bleecker used to have a lot of mom n' pop-type stores; places that RRL Bleecker tried to emulate. But it's all corporate now.

well, the entire SOHO use to be more unique, now it's just pretty much anything you can buy anywhere (though this is more less true anywhere in any large city over the world these days).
post #26354 of 27634
Hey did anyone buy these?
The description says they are slim fitting... Are they as slim as the chinos?

Becks in RRL from the RL Instagram feed. Had to share. He pulls it off so well.
