How does PRL Bradford compare to RLBL?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have tried on various RLBL suits. It's hard to find them at a price within my range, so I'm looking to try PRL instead. Multiple times I've read on here that the Bradford is similar to the RLBL Anthony. How true is this statement? How similar are the two?

 

I fit a 42L staple Anthony cut very well OTR - it has the perfect amount of waist suppression for me(almost no wrinkles/creasing around buttoning point), perfect shoulder width, and chest fits well. I love the structured shoulders that most seem to dislike. The back is the only thing lacking to me because there is excess fabric in the form of a few vertical creases. So how would I fare in a PRL Bradford? I went to the RL store a few days ago(60mi away) and I asked to try on a Bradford, but it was so roomy I think he might have picked the wrong model(still a 42L though).

 

This is a 42R in a lighter Navy microstripe. They didn't have a 42L so I just tried it on. I'm not too sure why the right side of coat is wrinkled more than the left side in the pic, but it wasn't when I was looking in the mirror - they were both as smooth as the left side.

Why is the back a mess?

Please ignore everything else other than the coatbiggrin.gif Hope some RL owners can chime in.

I just realized something...I may have slight hyper-lordosis and erect standing posture(I've been told by a few tailors) and that's what causes all the wrinkles in my back(that and it may be too tight). May be irrelevant, but maybe it'll help input about the fit and how PRL and RLBL compare.
