Is yours the 'raw' version?
It seems that one has the wool blanket pocket while the recent washed one doesn't.
I have the denim duffle bag, also 'raw' with the blanket wool pocket. I like it very much.
Yup, mine is the 'raw' version, I wasn't aware that there was another version, I'll have to keep an eye out for it. I missed out on the matching denim duffle. I was impressed with the emerson, also I recall the pricing being quite reasonable (considering RRL $495 tote)
Absolutely NOT positive. There's the current one and the one I own featuring a slightly different collar and pocket. But I seem to recall one between those two; Winter or Spring—identical to the current iteration but with the black RRL label. Can't find an image online so it could be a figment of my imagination. ;)
So dot com recently helped locate the UNCONSTRUCTED SPORT COAT STYLE NUMBER: 85545436 in 38R at the West Broadway store, and for $300 w/tax, and shipped, I must say this is an awesome jacket (not sure its worth the $990 list price). Its much lighter (in terms of fabric weight) than it appears in the picture on the site. Online, it almost appears like Denim and much lighter shade - in reality its a deeper indigo color. Should be ok for both summer/fall.
On a side note (not RRL related) the Levi's LVC White tab shirt (Based on the 1907 Sunset shirt) just arrived and is a steal for the price (link below). Its well made and cut slim from Japanese Selvedge; and if I was to guess its about 6 oz, kind of thick.for summer. MSRP is $130, discounted to $64.90 (in INDIGO STRIPE), and with the additional 40% discount being offered currently, it came down to $41.21 w/ tax. All sizes, S, M, L, XL in INDIGO STRIPE are currently available at the time of this posting.
I recently picked up the RRL Chambray shirt in light Indigo (single pocket and dark blue buttons) on sale at the Atlanta store... I think it was about $70 (list $225) from the SP1 collection (its not showing up online so cannot post a link). About the same time, I had ordered the Levi's light indigo chambray shirt (link below) which just arrived. The fabric on both is very similar (in terms of weave and weight) with the RRL chambray being half a shade darker. The stitching on the Levi's is not comparable to the RRL shirt (the Levi's is a regular Red tab) but the fit is almost identical. At $17 though the Levi's beats the RRL.
Edit: the Levi's is a White tab, not Red. Also, upon closer look, it does have double chain stitching. It also seems like its the same fabric but the Levi's seems once washed and the RRL not... but not sure.
Thanks for the heads up Cooly!
I have seen two versions of the Bowery Boot at the local store - the upper looks exactly the same on both with the only difference being the sole. One has the all-leather smooth sole (with a layer of black rubber out-sole on heel only) - this is the version that you see on the RRL website. And the other has the black rubber out-sole all the way - this one is not on the site. What is the difference between the two? Is one better than the other? Why was only one version on sale and not the other?
