So has there been a general consensus on what the next closest thing is? Jeez, just when I really discovered the brand..

All I can think of is: Gant Rugger (overpriced), J.Crew (big fit by comparison), Club Monaco (little bit of both) ffffuuuu.gif
post #934 of 1555
Gant stuff is the closest but like you said its much more money. There are pieces of Jcrew that fit this style but not a huge amount. There are also small boutiques that do well. Ball and Buck in boston has some similar stuff but again thats more money as well unfortunately.

Alternatives that I find are:

  1. Brooks Brothers (Flatiron, Extra Slim)
  2. Gant or Gant Rugger
  3. Polo Ralph Lauren / RRL (Many pieces here n there)
  4. Stubbs & Wootton, Shipton and Heneage (for Slippers)
  5. KJP for belts, bracelets etc...
  6. J Crew (not a fan but can work)
  7. Barbour, Belstaff, Schott for outerwear
  8. Orvis and Smathers & Branson, for surcingle and engine turn buckle belts
  9. LL Bean for your sporty needs
  10. Norman Hilton, J Press, Paul Stuart - for your suiting/blazers (Nick Hilton is more accurate now)
  11. http://www.nantucketreds.com/
  12. Sid Mashburn - the lord of all preppy...
  13. http://www.aubinandwills.com http://www.jackwills.com
  14. Smart Turnout

All these are pretty decent - , F E Castleberry should pick it up and make it a separate stand alone brand. He is probably more suitable than DZA, although I don't mind DZA doing what he feels like, he has every right.

Damn Saturdays, I'm betting you wrote up this contingency plan the minute you heard the news!

No Vineyard Vines?  No Gant by MB/MB mainline?

 

Also, Smoke DZA will release a clothing line after he releases some good music, which is never.  We all know what happened last time a rapper released a (quite nice) clothing line modeled after Rugby anyway.

thanks for the list. Norman hilton blazers starts at 38. j press and paul stuart are nice but super expensive. I am pretty fucked size wise. Since you and me same size on rugby you gotta help me out with sizing mate. What are other blazers that fits you like rugby does ?
http://www.aubinandwills.com http://www.jackwills.com they have nice blazers but way too short.

aubin and wills and jack wills are in the same vein as rugby, with jack wills being focused towards college-age, and A&W more for recent grads/young pros. funny, a jack wills shop just opened up here in georgetown about half a block away from the rugby store.

 

also, i don't like giving away one of my more secret brands, but Hackett is one that i like - it's a British brand (like the Wills lines) that is very similar to PRL but with an emphasis on British style. the only way to get it in the US is to bring it back from one of their overseas shops or to directly order from their store concierge service. or eBay.

Norman HIlton starts at what ever size you want, just call Nick and tell him you want it in 36, he'll make it for you if he has the resources/time. Usually pretty good about it. Other blazers that fit me like Rugby: depends on the brand/cut of brand. Milano at BB is pretty good, but requires some tailoring. RLBL is great. Paul Stuart in 36R (rare for me to find these and right, too expensive). Otherwise I haven't really ventured too far out..

Hackett isn't really much of a secret. But, a great brand, I agreee.
