Polo Ralph Lauren PRL 40R charcoal staple and faint navy pattern

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Two basically perfect condition Polo Ralph Lauren blue label suits.


1) Solid CHARCOAL staple suit - $245 >> $220 >> $200 >> $175 >> $160 shipped CONUS
This is as staple as it gets. The extreme close ups may show a little difference in color due to flash, but it is bare bones charcoal.

Armpit to Armpit: 20.5"
BOC: 30.5"
Shoulder to shoulder: 18"
Sleeve Length: 23.75" (+0)
Pant Waist (across front): 16" (+2)
Inseam: 29" (cuffs use 3" that can be let out)



2) Faint glenplaid/stripes NAVY suit (90% wool/10% cashmere) - $225 >> $200>> $175 >> $135 shipped CONUS
FYI the pics are representative. The pattern is really nice because it gives a variation on navy but is noticeable only if you are closer than 6'. Very servicable for formal business settings.

Armpit to Armpit: 20.5"
BOC: 30.5"
Shoulder to shoulder: 18"
Sleeve Length: 24" (+0)
Pant Waist (across front): 16.5" (+1.75)
Inseam: 29.5" (+2.75 extra fabric folded under, no cuff now)


In case anyone's wondering about the cut....
I own Polo Ralph Lauren suits in the following variations (printed in the inside breast pocket tag):

- "Polo I"
- "Polo II"
- "Blue Label"

Even though they are labeled "Blue Label", they fit exactly like my "Polo II" suit. Regardless of the measurements, the cut is sleek with a very flattering silhouette as expected of the "Polo II" model. I'm guessing they just changed the naming convention at some point, but kept the same cut.


For anyone willing to buy both, I would happily close the deal for $430 shipped CONUS.



**** EDIT:
I added pics of measurements of the thigh and rise. The ankle opening is juuuust short of 9" wide on these suits.

Are you sure about the sleeve length, there is absolutely no extra material?

They're a steal b/c no one wants 3 button suits. "It's not SF approved."

These look great, but the short arms is what's stopping me from pulling the trigger. I'd need almost 2" of extra material in the sleeves, might get away with 1.5", but it's not happening.

WTF? Both of those actually look almost like 3-roll-2's (see the roll struggling over that top button?) which aren't just SF approved but SF endorsed.

The prob with both for me (and others) are the short arms and (specifically for me) the trouser length. But at this price, I'd kop just for the jackets if the arms were more reasonable.
