The first first time I wore it, I did wear it with rigid khakis and a white shirt and the crocking was very noticeable on the rigid khakis  There was some mild bleeding on the color and cuffs of the shirt too... another somewhat humorous story was when I first wore it, I had my elbow on a white conference room table and it left a very noticeable blue stain on the table ...however with a wash, almost all the indigo on the other fabrics goes away......and it picked right up off the table.. :)  After the first few wears, there is a little to no bleeding.

 

The price you pay for the indigo bleeding is the outstanding, rich color...it's much nicer than you would get form other jackets/materials/dyes...

 

As for wearing it when it is too hot...I know what you mean, I've lived in 100% humidity/100 degree locals....but this is a very light cotton jacket...and it's great to wear with a T-shirt and jeans for a little more sophistication... the drawback to the cotton though is that it wrinkles...I've already noticed it's wool cousin doesn't wrinkle (even though it was folded in a box shipped to me).

 

...anyway...this has been my experience...will let you know about the wool one...just dropped it off at the tailor to get the sleeves taken up a bit...

 

 

Yeah my jacket (42R) isn't really 'boxy' per se, just a bit roomier in the arms and shoulders than the two RRL suits I own, which are admittedly extremely slim (size on the suits is 42L).  Unfortunately there is no way I can go down to a 40 and still have the waist area work (gotta hit the gym!).  

 

Thanks for the tip, yea I figured it best to wear with shirts that I didn't mind any bleeding on.  Good to hear that after a few wears the bleeding reduces.  Where this piece really shines is in direct sunlight due to the heavy depth of the indigo dye.  At first glance in dark lighting it looks like your typical navy blazer, but step outside and it really impresses.

So just a note as well.  Not sure what the validity is to this but my better half just got back from NYC and stopped by the West Broadway store.  She noticed they had some women's items and asked the SA about it, who claimed they had been slowly receiving inventory and were bringing back the women's line.  

 

I hadn't heard anything like that so again not sure if it's true or if in reality it's just old inventory they are slowly trying to unload.

Pretty sure all unsold RRL stock ends up at the sample sales in NY and is eventually re-sold by Deez Nuts in the B+S forum.

PS: as a side note, I see they are offering the Unconstructed Cotton Sport Coat again for F/W.  Another great jacket...wore the heck out it the past couple seasons.


Interesting. The Wool Herringbone Sport Coat is described as Navy, but it is a Indigo dyed fabric, right?

Looks lovely.

I have a similar one from about a year ago, which doesn't  have the herringbone pattern, though. The colour of that looks indigo, too, but there weren't any crocking warning labels.

I found recently that a number of companies call some fabrics indigo as a synonym for navy or royal blue, while the fabric isn't really indigo dyed.

And have you seen this Indigo Cotton Sports Coat?
How would you compare the two?

Where in Florida?  It's a big state...  Jacksonville area, no.  The St. Augustine outlet didn't have RRL a couple weeks ago when I stopped by.  Orlando area only has outlets so probably not.  Tampa I don't think has any Ralph Lauren stores of any kind.  Miami area has a couple actual RL stores - the one on Worth would be your best bet.  I think there is one in Naples too, but would doubt they carry RRL as they probably cater to senior citizens.  All the ones in the panhandle are outlets so probably just have polo stuff.  There is a reason us Floridians order online.

yep, I was in there a couple weeks ago and they were nice enough to bring quite a few different items from the back room for my better half to try on

yeah, I saw they labeled it "navy"  as well and wondered the same thing (if it was Indigo or not), but when the coat arrived, it had the usual "Attention: it may rub off" warning label.  It did seem to rub off less..because when I received the other Unconstructed Cotton one, blue showed on my hands a little as soon as I handled it...the wool one does not.

Have not seen this sport coat but they've had similar ones in past seasons.  Not sure the right wording to describe the differences, but I would say both the wool and cotton Unconstructed Tailored Sport Coats are more "traditional" sport coats.  The one you link above is a jacket modeled after a vintage coat of some sort.

I already picked up some new fall denim….the slim fit Fairview wash. The wash is killer!

RRL rolled out tons of shorts this fall. I’m eyeing up the Lisi Suede-Cotton Workshirt. This shirt is smoking! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I want this hand knit cardigan really bad but that 1200 price tag needs to hit like 350 before I cop. I probably will cop these 3 shirts once the first sale hits though.
As you can tell I prefer loud prints. I may have to slow down on JE pieces though to get the sweater.

I'm grabbing that patchwork flannel on Thurs when I get paid.
post #26609 of 27175
^ please report back on the fit once you get it. I fall between a medium and large in RRL button down. It looks like it has a relaxed fit so i may do a medium
