What do you think of this New Purple Label Suit?

I want one. Feels very Huntsman on so many levels.

Great waist.

Love it. Love the RLPL silhouette. Wish the MTM weren't so expensive.

The coat is rather nice (I would've chosen a different tie) except for the pulling around the button and the space between it and the shirt collar.

In theory I really like RLPL (and that suit you posted), but I get the feeling that suit is pinned like crazy in the back and when you buy it, it will fit almost like a sack suit. (I just had a bad experience getting a RLPL jacket altered, I'm still bitter)

Great suit. I have to suggest a different tie and square thought.

Yes, the RLPL fits are not quite as British as they claim visually.

I hate Hate HATE that pinning gimmick. It completely defies the point of showing a picture at all. It's even worse when they do it in store fronts and its such a blatant ploy, and yet you KNOW someone is going to walk into a Gap and be like wow, I want a jacket that fits like that, and fall for it.

Agreed. If they do this all the time, why not just alter the waist for a slimmer fit? I just don't get it. It's not like it's hard or anything, and it beats misleading the customer. I can't tell you how many times I saw a mannequin with a good slim fitting shirt only to find pins holding it altogether in the back.

If a shirt hangs like a sack, then let it be. I'll buy slim fitting shirt and sweaters elsewear...

Serenity now!

Not bad, but I've never warmed to the peak lapel-SB style.

Nice looking outfit. I'd hit it. I really do like PoW check pocket squares. I'm going to have to get me one of those.

Or RTW for that matter. They are going so up market that my wallet can't keep up.

This is why I have a tailor that can perform miracles.

That's what happens when tailored clothing is made by the Italians. They get close to the British style, but alas, no cigar. Unfortunately for RLPL, Chester Barrie was a managerial disaster, if not CB would most likely, to this day manufacture RLPL items.
