However ordering from sebsite and returning has no become somewhat of a hassle. The Brick and Mortor stores no longer take back website merchandise directly and only one store in Dallas carries a very small amount RRL.

I will would really appreciate any sizing and actual pic of the products you guys own as well as opinion of the quality. I have in the last 30 days completed 3 big orders and have had to return roughly 20% from each order and sending back and getting credit for return takes for ever.

One piece I continually put in and out of my cart is the Oilcloth Hunting Jacket....I am concerened about the level of distressing and overall fit and finish. So if anyone owns and has actual pics plus comments would be very appreciative. I own alot of the new stuff so perhaps I could return the favor

specs:
I am 6'
190lbs
and almost a perfect RRL large in most.

 SIncerely, Robear350x467px-LL-b1de53c9_1_2011SwtrCashVnkDSCshiraz.jpeg

Ive said it before but if youre thinking about getting that jacket i would recommend a Barbour instead. It will save you a few hundred dollars, and if youre actually using it for ranch work and in theory damaging it, you can send the Barbour back to the plant for repairs from now until you die.

Salutations all,

 

Like RobearH, I'm one of the new guys. I've frequented this forum/thread much as a guest, but one can only engage so much without a voice. Not looking to post journal entries of questions, however any detailed feedback would be much appreciated.

 

  • For those familiar with the Oxford Sport Shirt, how is the cut in comparison to a custom fit Polo Ralph Lauren Shirt (specifically the tail, and sides) Also, should I remain patient for any potential post Christmas sales before purchasing?

  • Has anyone been able to gage the fit (particularly a size small)?pPOLO2-11318523_lifestyle_v360x480.jpg

 

Thanks in advance. I also stay near a Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, so I'll be sure to keep the thread informed on any items stocked.

Your welcome. I hope it helps. I have not laundered them yet but am 99.9% sure that it wouldn't make a difference at all. I have had a lot of jeans with distressing or stains etc, and washing them has never removed them in any noticeable way.

Sorry about this outlet talk again, but

My local outlet's general manager charged with distributing child porn. Wondered why he didn't show up when I was there.

Anybody care to comment on the stretching? I have a pair of 31's that I wore for about a year that fit somewhat lose, but after losing a couple of pounds they slid off my waist and I couldn't wear them comfortably without pulling them up. I just picked up a size 30 and they are much tighter than I figured they'd be. I can get the top button done, but barely. Wondering if I'm just SOL since there is no measurement in between or if I should ride these out and let them stretch. Thanks!

I own the jacket and tend to agree with Dave. While I think it's a truly awesome piece and often get compliments on it, I wouldn't recommend actually doing manual labor in the thing as it definitely feels more "fragile" than a Barbor. I have owned Barbor's in the past and while they have been possibly better made than the RL, they simply aren't as cool (IMHO).

Judging by your measurements you'd want to go for the large as it fits TTS.

My ome gripe is that the hood's poppers are very loose. As a result, you have to take care (especially after a few beers) not to loose the damnable thing.

I'm currently on vacay so can't provide pics I'm afraid.
