I dunno about true. I normally take a small and had to have a medium in this. It runs quite a bit smaller than like the reversible racing jacket of similar style.

Anybody seen the camo cotton canvas hunting pants in store that can comment on the thickness of the material?

Website says 9.6 oz. Going to central America next month and wondering if it'd be a little too heavy for the climate.

Everything is too heavy for that climate.

I highly recommend the camo pants. It has a nice slim fit with a drawstring bottom, and the camo looks great. It doesn't stand out too much so you can team it up with alto of different tops. I would describe it as medium weight. One of the few RRL items I would pay MSRP for.

Yeah, I'm seriously thinking about biting the bullet and paying retail. I'll be in Costa Rica over labor day and was wondering if I'd sweat out in them.

I have my eyes on these too. They arw low key compared to regular camo and per boxdok, they can be worn with a lot of different tops. My SA sent me some pics. Note that they are actually darker than in the pics on RL.com. No surprise there, LOL!

What are your guys' thoughts on RRL suits? I have a few weddings coming up and I've never owned a suit in my life. My line of work never requires me to wear a suit. I definitely need a suit for formal occasions though so I need to buy one regardless. Is the price tag for a RRL suit worth it? I definitely love the design / style of RRL so at the moment that would be the only thing justifying a big purchase like this. Would dropping that much money be worth it? If I'm looking for longevity in style / construction, is RRL a good route to go or does something like Purple Label make more sense? Or, considering I won't be wearing a suit often, is Polo a better option considering price?

Long time lurker and first time post here. Thanks in advance!

i wore the navy blue herringbone w/ pinstripe 3 pc suit to a wedding last year and people are still talking about it now...when i first showed up mofos were calling me the godfather.

they are not your average suit and they arent loud neither. they make the perfect statement without having to look like you are heading to work like everybody else. the RRL suit is slightly heavyweight but very well built.

just make sure you tailor it to fit you perfectly and accessorize properly. dont half ass it. if you are rocking a $2k+ suit dont be wearing chinese made or aldo shoes! dont wear a bulova neither.

Yeah, I'm leaning towards that.  Just thinking about ways to avoid exposed skin for mosquitoes to munch on.  Zika and shit.

As PCFivez noted, they aren't your average suit.  A lot of the RRL suiting has vintage details that would look out of place compared to modern suits.  

 

Aside from that, the quality of the suits is fantastic on an objective level.  If the wedding you're attending is vintage themed, you'll look amazing.  If it's more modern, you'll still look great but you'll stand out a bit more.

 

From a longevity stand point, the suits are well made and should last forever if you take care of them.  However, you'll get more versatility out of a modern-cut suit like Purple Label or Polo in terms of places you can wear it (e.g. work, weddings, formal functions, etc).

 

It all depends on your overall style.  If you're more of a retro guy, RRL suiting would be fine for you.  If you generally want to look slick like James Bond, you'll want modern-cut suits.

 

Oh, and as already pointed out, whatever you end up with, get it tailored to fit at the best place you can find and make sure your accessories are solid, too.

I'm in the same boat and rarely need to wear suits but just purchased the grey herringbone RRL suit. Aside from the fact that it was a great deal on sale it actually does look and feel really good. I asked the question about RRL suiting a few days ago because I'm in my early 20's and was afraid it would look a little too old school for me. Suit ended up looking great and I'm looking forward to the times I actually get to wear it. Once its tailored I'll be sure to post a few fit pics

Ps. a pair of Julian made RRL engineer boots popped up on ebay in a size 9. looks like they're in great condition for a good price, I'd snag if they were a 10:embar:
