Because RRL is wholly owned by Mr. Ralph Lauren. Company can't really touch it, because Ralph Lauren loves his American vintage, rugged look, indian stuffs, western style, etc.

Right, its always mentioned in the earnings report in the section where the list the intellectual property and names of the company, its mentioned that it is owned by Mr. Ralph Lauren and NOT Ralph Lauren corporation.

How do Rugby sportshirts fit compared to Ralph Lauren blue label Custom Fit?
post #889 of 1554

Just ordered six shirts, a shaggy shetland sweater and a shetland shawl cardigan. 

 

Having never actually tried on anything from Rugby, I'm a bit anxious that the shirts won't fit, mainly as I'm worried about the armlength. We'll see.

I really hope they move the Rugby motif or aspects of it into PRL.

What other brands used to exist? & wow, that's cool Mr. RL owns RRL himself!

RIP rugby. I blame RRL for this.
Its sad becos I was introduced to rugby May this year. The blazer from this line is reasonably priced , great quality and their slim fit is just amazing. Their blazers fits me so well that need no alterations. Not to mention rugby's some what unique preppy styling. I have only bought 3 blazers from them so far. Once the main sale kicks in I may buy few more to stock up.
SF members we never purchase rugby at full price . We wait for extra kicker even when items are on sale. No wonder rugby is posting a loss. Honestly sad to see this line closing down. I can say that this is my favorite brand of all times. I will miss you rugby.

Why would you blame RRL? Rugby started way after RRL. Almost nothing they sell is worth anything close to retail price. And Rugby a few years ago was way better than Rugby now.

Who said Rugby was posting a loss? And most SFers wait for the kicker with RRL and Ralph Lauren.

I agree, Rugby has been very experimental and RRL has nothing to do with it being phased away. If anything it's "Denim and Supply" and "Club Monaco's" fault.

Just ordered the brown newbury jacket as well. I have a similar cream/brown wool/linen one form rugby spring summer collections ; which was half lined. This one said fully lined. Just stocking up. Does anyone know if this is their last collection ? or hen will they shut it off completely ?
3 more jackets are on my list - Belted Corduroy Jacket, Brushed Herringbone Jacket and Glen Plaid Newbury Jacket.
I am surprised that they are closing down becos they just launched rugby Japan.

Rugby Japan wasn't just launched, its been there for some time now.

Feb 2nd is when they close their doors, there are a few items due to hit after Nov 7, and afaik no plans for a Spring collection

Thanks mate. Last summer they had this jacket. This didn't go on the end of season spring/summer sale. It was $299. I waited for this to go on sale later. But it just disappeared when the AW stocks rolled in. I hope they bring this back at reduced price before they close down. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

If I remember correctly that was a Made in Italy one. i wouldn't expect those to stay in stock, were popular and higher quality than other jackets/suits (made by Caruso).
