RLPL represents the kind of clothes Ralph Lauren would wear. If you ever see him, his jacket shoulders are always too wide for his frame (by a significant amount, not just a little). It's the first thing I notice whenever I see him in a jacket.

See this link for a typical example: http://themonsieur.com/2011/01/24/iconic-men%E2%80%99s-style-ralph-lauren-designer-menswear-and-accessories/

18" is accurate for a 38.

Every Purple Lable jacket I've tried on has run small.

I messages him a month or so ago and he was pretty stalwart. They're mostly size 17 too.

can you imagine what shipping, customs and other expenses would be before that lot arrives in your house... not worth it.

Not sure why the seller describes it as Black Label.
