This stuff hasn't hit any of the sales floors yet or online, so if you are true RRL collector, let me know.
I'll try to get of photo of it today and post it up tonight.
Thanks,

add obx104 to the list of Orlando area ebay resellers. I'd say most of them live out there or specifically travel to those 2 outlets.

I've been eyeing on Rhythm-Fuk's blog and saw that announcement. For some reason, I think they know exact(or very close) cycle when RRL hits the outlets.

I think their focus is to arrive right before the end of RRL store sales when prices are 40-50% off and then additional xx% and then they hang around for another week or two and try their luck at Polo/ Barneys outlets, that's how they maximize their profits. In the past they typically spent 2 weeks per trip but this year they're here for 3 weeks because they're having a harder time finding RRL on sale.

 

Japanese sell most stuff above MSRP so acquiring during first sale 30-40% off is still a good deal for them and that's why all the nice pieces XS,S become sold out before bigger discounts or before they're sent to outlets. Rhythm pays top dollar for many of it's handbags, belts, boots, leathers, denim but will only purchase certain things at outlet prices. They have a great understanding of what they can and can't sell for a high price and in a fairly short amount of time.

That RRL style with the slanted breast pocked appears to be copying the Belstaff Trialmaster/Barbour International. The Belstaffs are a somewhat trim fit. I have no experience with the International but it is supposed to be a trimmer than usual fit for Barbour. There are also the trim fitting To Ki To Barbours out there. The standard Barbour Internationals run about $420. The Belstaffs I think are a bit more than the RRL. If it matters, for the most part the Belstaffs are made in Italy and the Barbours are made in England.
Hoit, both Belstaff and Barbour sell rewaxing goo. It looks messy though.

Thanks guys. Belstaff is what I was thinking, too, but it's tough to find them in any color but black these days. I'll keep my eye out. I saw the RRL jacket in person and while it looks nice the quality just isn't there versus Belstaff/Barbour, especially in regard to hardware. $200? Maybe. $600? Nope.

Send me an email if you are interested. The cardigan is 1200. The sweater hasn't hit any of the sales floors nor online yet.

Since when?
post #8862 of 20891

At least a year ago. Been replaced by a surf shop. I mentioned this a few months ago.

 

There is still a good RL store in Bal Harbor if anyone is in the area and wants to check it out.

I think South Coast Plaza RL doesn't carry RRL anymore.
Vegas RL at Palazzo carries some RRL bags. They had some awesome leather duffle bag that was retailed for like $1400 or something.

My SA at the Vegas RL told me they were going to start carrying some RRL clothing items.
He was vague as to what (other than denim) and when though. This was back in November.
