This morning I ordered the jacket and later noticed the pants are matching. So I called, 5 minutes ago, to confirm, but then when the Rep tried to place the order the size 32 pants, they were out of stock. 

 

Initially, I ordered the jacket to wear as a sports coat but I guess I didnt think through this being a suit and may have to return the jacket.

That's the one, i ordered a 30 and a 32. Im expecting the 32 to fit large, so if that's the case I'll be glad to send them to you at the sale price

Okay; let me know how it goes. Also, I will need to decide whether to keep the jacket depending on whether it can be worn by itself as a sports coat. I cannot tell the difference between this jacket and other sports coats, is there any?

Can someone more knowledgeable than I, in matters sartorial, please tell me if this RRL 3-BUTTON HERRINGBONE JACKET can be worn by itself, like a sports coat, without the matching pants? I cannot tell whether this is designed/intended to be a suit jacket to be worn with the matching HERRINGBONE DAVID PANTs.

No. Or at the very least, not very easily.

BTW, I bought a size 9 so I wasn't the one who snatched your shoes. ;)

Thanks for the quick feedback. I kind of thought, looking at the stripes, that it was a little too dressier, but it was an impulse buy because of the discount - bad move; should have thought it through. Anyway, I was able to cancel it before its too late. And while I was on the phone with them, they helped me track down the UNCONSTRUCTED SPORT COAT (which is what i was after in the first place) at the West Broadway, NY store and I called and placed an order with them (same price as online).

That jacket doesn't have stripes. It has a herringbone weave, which -- when small enough in scale -- looks like what you see in that photo.

The "dressiness" isn't really about the herringbone, however. It's about how a charcoal tailored jacket is almost exclusively only done for suits; rarely for sport coats. Would have been easier to wear if it were in a more casual color (navy, brown, olive, etc).

Some consensus gathering on some sale items...

Anyone check out the burgundy cords IRL?

Also, does anyone wear the white chambray work shirt? I often wonder whether or not it's worth getting a white chambray shirt.

Striped hoodie - what's the quality of their hoodies? I'm liking this one.

It seems that some of the items are on deeper discount than historical. Is that accurate? If so, could it be a first salvo in the new CEO's quest to pare down RRL?

Some changes I noticed:

The Japanese RL online shop has closed.

In Europe instead of using cardboard boxes for shipping, the clothes are delivered in these thicker plastic bags.

In my experience (granted its been a year or two since I bought/tried on any RRL tailoring items), the Made in Italy suiting tends to more or less run TTS, so that a 32 is actually pretty close to a true 32.  Let us know how it turns out.

I don't think any steeper discounts than in the past. Picked these two up recently the still water slims and I think the Kentucky wash slim narrow. The slim narrows are 32 x 32 and fit perfectly while the slims are 31 x 32 and laughably measure about a 35 in the waist, although the rest of the pant fits well enough to be a 31

I have the Chambray shirts in blue and white, and to be honest, I mainly wear the blue one. If I do wear the white one, it's normally under a jacket, almost never by itself. It's probably just me, but white shirts on their own seem a bit like I'd be the guy wearing it on the beach singing the chorus break on a hip hop track. The RRL White Chambray is great quality though, and I'd wear one casually before the white shirts I have from Purple or Black Label, if that means anything ...

I bought the white chambray work shirt to wear with the RRL striped jacket in combination with vest and pants made from the same material. I wanted a white shirt that fit the more rugged look of my makeshift suit and the wide-spread, relaxed collar seems to fit the bill. I doubt I would wear it without a sweater, vest, or jacket.

 

As for the discounts, I don't think they are any deeper than we've seen in the past.
