there was a ridiculous full length military double breasted coat with huge gold buttons, MII

i sold a yellow curious george style raincoat, horn buttons, really nice fabric, nice plaid lining, MII

and im sure there is other awesome stuff thats very limited... i have a hunch that rlpl/rlbl/prl/rrl made in italy sportswear (suits are made by different brands) is all the same factory (the prices are all pretty much the same) and just different styling

+1!!!

The stuff at Macys and the Polo outlet are nothing compared to the items sold in the "real" RL stores.

MC has everything you need to know and more about PRL.

PRL is Corneliani-made, and half-canvassed. These are only the made in Italy pieces.
RLPL can be St. Andrews-made, can also be Caruso-made. It's now tough to tell since they stopped including the labels on the inside pockets.
I think RRL is sometimes Caruso-made, but probably less frequently than not.

Just wanted to reiterate that Robert is kind of dumb for calling it PLRL.

What an ass. Did you ever, like, misspell something or mispronounce something? What do you want me to do? Admit I was dumb? OK, I admit it. So what? Really. So what?

Many users here are defensive of Ralph Lauren. I compared RLPL ties with those under the Armani Collezioni label and several users freaked. It's stupid, IMHO, but such is human nature. (most) RL products are easy to acquire, so many of us have them... And is one reason why, I guess, it's defended so vehemently ("I wear RL, therefore I belong and so to insult RL is to insult me!" Pfft!).

Agree. PRL is accessible so it's considered mainstream and thereby less groovy than the usual SF-approved garments.

Anyway, here's a photo of a vintage store workshirt PRL pickup and a gingham oxford (tie is unlabeled cotton knit of some kind, ie, not RL)

So it's rather difficult to kick off an official thread with a glaring and confusing (given the differrent lines of RL) misspelling of the brand in question.

I don't understand this thread. Polo/Blue Label is RL's mainline and has been for years. It's in every mid-range-and-up department store in America. Isn't everybody here already familiar with their clothes?

And so what would you like me to do now? I already admitted my mistake, right? God, you guys can be harder asses than a bunch of old nuns.

Not much to understand. If you pick up something you like by the label, talk about it here. Or complain. I don't care. I don't own the thread, I just started it. Do with it what you will!

On topic, I still check out the RL stores near me, maybe once a season, just to see what they have. The non-logo'ed stuff is reasonable.
