there was a "mr. lifshitz" on my line that I didn't answer. was too busy critiquing ralph lauren's business plan.
New Ralph Lauren line: Denim & Supply - Page 3
I think when guys refer to blue label they mean the normal Polo Ralph Lauren line, not the women's "Collection". Just an easy way to differentiate from Black and Purple
men's "collection" (MII) shoes also have a blue label but that's a whole different beast..
I'm digging this
I've seen other jackets similar to it with contrast color pockets and a yoke design but can't think of the brands now. I think it was a Japanese one. Anyone know? Thanks.
Interesting ... just read on ValetMag about RL's new clothing line called Denim & Supply. It's already online: http://www.ralphlauren.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=11391278
According to the website it's inspired by "the warehouse and artist communities of Brooklyn, NY." The clothes look kind of like RRL Americana, but much less expensive. Lots of plaids and jeans. Anyone see this up close yet? Thoughts?
Looks like upscale occupy gear
The problem is that this line is really turning Ralph Lauren into a convoluted mess of identities and brands, and there is so little organizational structure between them. What lines are in what stores? Do some lines have their own store? Are they online only? Why is Rugby on another website? Why do some lines have weird blog-like content that is completely contrived out of the insistence that these lines cater to free-thinking bohemian cowboys? Why are all the clothes so old looking? They're new, aren't they? Why are the web interfaces for each line so different in some cases? Get it together, Ralph.
Don't forget all the label colour codes as well, green label, blue label, purple label, black label, etc. Perhaps that's the way Mr. Lifshitz likes it...confusing and byzantine.

The fit is pretty decent all around. The Chinos are fairly slim. I actually had to get them a size up to have them fit in the thighs. The henleys fit really great at first but they stretch out really fast. I wish I could have gotten a small instead of medium for those.
Everything else Ive tried on from the line has fit pretty well. Its not super slim fitting but its not baggy at all either.
Watched the video...made me lol big time.
The message I got from it: "Wear these clothes and you too can live with your friends in a random NY apartment your spoiling parents paid for while you grow your hair out to various lengths and fuck an array of girls who are all going through a self described minor life crisis and an amateur photography phase."
I know that this line is the weakest line from RL, but I was wondering if I should get this denim jacket instead of a Levis:
Do you think the quality is better than Levis? Thanks.
I own a almost a dozen D&S items, I actually love the button down shirts, they are slim fitted. If you don't want a slim fit then most of the RL lines aren't for you. It's no slimmer then my RLBL, RLPL, or rugby items.
As for the quality I also have to strongly disagree, the quality on all the button ups I have from them is on point. The fabrics aren't BL or PL quality but it's to normal RL standards.
