University oxfords are good and come in some nice colors. I have seen the white, green, and blue. Green is a little too bright for me personally. Would love to try the purple/lavender.

Tail is short enough imo to wear untuck (I stand at 5'10). After many washes, the fit is pretty good, size small. I wish the collar was a bit more beefier/longer points and collar to sit higher up like some TB oxfords.

I did notice a little that the sleeve length may have shortened due to washes over time, but in general, I consider these shirts for casual wear and not to be mixed in use with more MC attire.

Apparently, "the tweed run" or whatever is somewhat limited edition. The knickers I ordered are almost gone (no size 32 hehe) so if you want them, I'd hop on it real quick!

well, if you're in NYC, just go to the University and 12th, I am sure they would have most in stock

On Rugby's website, a lot of sport coats and suits don't fit the models, the sleeves are too long. You can see how the sleeves are rolled up  in order to fit in those shots. It's like someone grabbed his Dad's coat for school....

 

Is the too-long-sleeve an accurate property of Ivy/Prep style?

Any one purchased this jacket?

You talking about the black one ? You may want to pull the trigger because it's reduced $38 to $90 - it's sharp, but I can't wrap my noggin' around a cricket sweater in black.

Can anyone report on these pants, Straight Relaxed Chino and Vintage Chino University Pant ? Fit, rise, and vanity sized? The first doesn't look too relaxed, but someone here earlier mentioned "relaxed" are huge.

Thanks and best regards.

Relaxed fit from what i've seen is huge. I wouldn't get it. As for their standard pant (at least from 2 seasons ago) fits slightly slimmer than the J. Crew classic, but not as slim as Urban Slim fit.

Does anybody know about Rugby selvedge jeans?
I copped some, they were Made In USA, and had same wash tag as RRL.

Any info would be appreciated.

I've been digging a bunch of Rugby's F/W '11 gear, including Tweed Run, too. But the sportcoats and suits seem overpriced for the construction, don't they?

 

I paid full retail for the tab collar chambray shirt, because I really like the juxtaposition of the chambray fabric with an otherwise refined shirt (straight yoke, no pocket, tab! collar!). I've only gotten to wear it once so far since it's been too warm.

I don't think this shirt says, "cowboy," because it has absolutely no Western details, like I described above (straight yoke instead of curved, no pockets instead of two with snaps, tab collar instead of point collar). Maybe if you wore it with jeans or other chambray... I wouldn't do that. Though I don't remember what I wore it with (chinos or gray trousers most likely), I could see it looking good with (at least) khaki chinos, brown corduroys, or gray trousers. I'm sure I wore a tie, since that's the whole point of the tab collar. I'll probably be wearing it a lot this fall/winter under cardigans with various chinos, corduroys, and flannel trousers, so I'll try to remember to take some fit pictures when I do.

I had a pair from a while back (2007 maybe) and they were pretty nice. The fit was a bit strange though. Was told it was White Oak Cone at the time not sure what it is not. Got it for $36 I think on sale!

Edit: They did have the limited edition box pair that was White Oak Cone for sure and made in the USA. So I wouldn't be surprised if all their selvedge is White Oak Cone.
