Truly worth the money imo, especially when on sale.

i agree with you 1000% but its made in China. having said that, lets all now have a circle jerk and fuck over this wonderful thread yet again. I thought rrl shop was going to be the last whack job posting on this thread but more idiots have surfaced. fucks who only show up or stick around for a skirmish and are never seen or heard from again. please go back into your little internet holes and keep your fanatical opinions on the discussion boards of your local second rate news sites.

I agree.

most of the same stuff as when i was there on monday. i guess the tweed jackets were gone by now?
i really hate going to that place. being surrounded by super ignorant shoppers shoving me out of the way kind of gets to me. i went a few weeks ago and some russian guy tried to take the pants i was currently paying for and buy them himself

hahaha thats hilarious. i've generally had a good experience there and i've been there quite a few times. what were the discounts btw?

I didn't bother to read most of the arguments for or against goods made in China but I thought we established over and over again on this forum that the country of origin is not indicative of quality. Many times the quality of something made in China can beat the quality of the same good that is made in Italy. Made in Italy does not mean always mean a good was made in Italy (ex. A Gucci purse being made entirely in China then a Made in Italy tag being sewn on the purse in Italy or "Swiss" watch the is assembled in Switzerland with all Chinese parts). Once again with this thread there is a lack of knowledge as to what clothing quality really is. Is it the thread quality? Is it the durability of the denim? The thickness of the flannel in the flannel shirts? These marginal differences in quality that are apparent when supplier makes an agreement with Ralph Lauren to produce their clothing is almost invisible to the consumer. That is what I love about this forum- it exposes the quality stuff from overpriced crap.

Unfortunately a couple RRL shirts I have owned have had buttons fall off which has never happened to any other shirt I have owned from less expensive brands. The 4 pairs of RRL jeans I have owned are all first rate though I must say.

I think the great overlap of the different Ralph Lauren brands, especially with the new introduction of Denim and Supply, calls into question whether RRL is worth the extra money (at least it does in my mind as a consumer). Why would I pay $185 for a chambray shirt that is made in China by RRL when I could spend $69.50 for a Denim and Polo chambray, both Ralph Lauren when I can't see differences in quality?

Tuxedo stripe? Are these those black on blue ones? Can never keep track of the wash names.

Anyway, so after looking around, I decided that a nice piece I'm interested in getting for this fall/winter is a pair of tweed herringbone buckleback trousers from the Holiday Lodge collection. Anybody own these? I see that they run large in the waist, but how do they fit in the thighs (I think somebody mentioned they'd rather deal with thigh measurements than geo-economics within the garment industry, so there ya go).

Also, does anybody know if this was part of a whole suit or just trousers independent and of themselves?

And one more question: how do you find out about the upcoming collections and the names of them? The RL website was vague but I did see they're finally opening an online store this fall.

You mean this one?

Looks like vanity size 2 as well, should just ask the guy, looks like he is at least quoting accurate measurement (though not sure if I would buy from him, I am guessing you can find better deal if you wait)

No, these are not black on blue; BOB don't have a tuxedo stripe on the outseam.
