RLPL vs. RL Polo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
so i came across a cashmere made in italy blazer by RL Polo, my question is what makes this jacket different from RLPL of the same nature?

Quality, cut, price.

that is RLPL is more "modern" cut and generally better made?

Better made, definitely. Cut is 'different'. (more padded shoulders, slightly higher armholes, blah blah, blah blah) You really need to try on both in your size. The different cuts (shapes) each better suit different body types.

As far as Ralph's stuff goes, I wouldn't put RLPL at the top of the "modern" list. The look has, however, been moving in a more modern direction lately.

Several of the Polo models actually work better for me than most PL.

My thoughts, for what they're worth:

- RL Polo Made in Italy blazers are made by Corneliani.
- RLPL will be made by Saint Andrews (or possibly Cantarelli, depending on the exact jacket).
- All are well-respected, but Saint Andrews is the best.

- RL Polo comes in several different cuts; RLPL generally favours one cut.
- RL Polo has historically been somewhat looser fitting, although some cuts are much trimmer, esp. recently. RLPL has historically been more of an English cut, but has been trending a bit more Italian recently.

I prefer RLPL most of the time, since it fits me better (the bonus is the better construction & sometimes fabrics). But both will be decent jackets.

Some are made by Caruso - I tried one on today. Cashmere, label was unmistakably Caruso.
