Hence the prices asked for the RRL brand.
The jeans are made in the US, and perhaps a few other pieces, but a majority of their pieces are still made in China, not that there's anything wrong with that.

no, no, of course not. people's personal manufacturing preferences are nobody's business but their own.

i noticed the rise jumped a lot on your measurements from a 31w @ 9.75 to a 32w @10.5. The 32w is correct are you sure about the rise on the 31w it seems way too low.

the measurements are definitely correct, at most the 31 is 9 7/8".

You hear that, TDV? You owe him lunch and an ice cream for that.

Anyone who placed a personal order with me call the store or your stuff will be sold.

Nathan and I tried on the shirts and shorts. The fit is on point. I think the price smashes BoO if you don't want a super fitted shirt. It's still slim but the drapping is great.

Nathan took some pics of my outfit today and will post them tomorrow. If anyone wants a pair of twill jodphers I can order you some.

Best,
mauro

No.

It's named after the Double RL ranch in Colorado, which is named after Ralph and Ricki Lauren.

Or maybe it's the Ralph and Ricki Lifshitz ranch. You never know.

I felt like a complete noob asking that here but I've never seen it fully explained. I've heard the "double r" explanation but it didn't clarity. Ricki and Ralph Lipschitz makes much more sense.

Eh, I've asked them in Atlanta and overhead them explaining it to other curious customers myself as well. If it counts for anything I've learned that the RRL sales associates can be just as clueless as anyone when it comes to the stuff they are selling. A lot of them are RL fanatics who just happened to get in on the newly opened RRL store in their town.

One time the sales associate in Atlanta told me there was an amazing brand that would be right up my alley. The Great China Wall... real life facepalm moment.

I still think it's named after the ranch.
