Green label/Chaps are on the same level, maybe he was making a joke?

The old, pre-purple label Ralph Lauren stuff is somewhere in the mix between PRL, RLBL, and RLPL.

No Rugby RL Love?

Lets fix this:

Low ---> High

Chaps, Lauren, Ralph, PRL(Tie),Rugby RL Made in America (Tie w/PRL), Rugby Made in Italy, PRL (Italy/Boutique Stores), RRL, RLBL, RLPL.

Collection items range in between PRL and RLPL. RRL Ranges as well but for the most part the quality is superior.

Rugby borrows a lot from PRL and a bit from RRL, but its much more trending towards PRL since its a modern preppy look. Personally I'm a fan of their suits, fit very well and very slim. Quality is pretty great, one Made in America suit I have from them is pretty great, whereas the Made in Italy one is amazing. RLBL still has a better overall quality/construction.

Oops, forgot about Rugby.

Is collection the pre-purple label stuff?

I have a pre PL suit, and it's pretty nice, I should look at it and compare to my other RL stuff I suppose.

Collection is mainly women - but once in a while I see a men's collection item here or there. I think for the most part its shoes - i don't often see it. But some random items get thrown into 'Collection'. I have some sneakers that are not Polo, but rather just Ralph Lauren - Like Purple Label font, and the quality of the sneakers vs the Polo ones are much higher - and much more in taste without the gigantic logos or 'Polo' written all over it. I don't know if I consider that in collection though since there are 'RALPH LAUREN COLLECTION' items, mainly shoes. It seems like a brand they tried in like 2006 and did not expand on.

I can definitely see them possibly introducing something named similar to that with just novelty items, like leather flasks, office novelties, golfing bags etc.. Just items that aren't clothing but stylish

Why is anything below Polo/Blue label even in discussion? Those shouldn't be mentioned here. All anyone here should be concerned with is Polo, Black Label, Purple Label, RL Signature, and Sartorial.

You're right - exaggerated shoulder discussions onward.

BTW, what happened to being Tony Romo??

Although I still admire Tony Romo, it was a username created on a whim and I thought it needed to finally be changed.

This.


No room in the sleeve to bend arms. Hurts to roll up sleeves because they constrict blood flow down the forearms.

Buttons popping at the chest even though the neck fits right.

There must be many skinny guys into slim fit. This is not a good look IMHO. Slim is for fit guys. There is nothing appealing in showing how skinny you are. Sorry, about this. Not masculine at all.

Slim fit shirts sell very well hence you see more of them being offered

Dislike Rugby jackets too. Center vents, short lengths kill it for me. I think the pants are really tapered too
