You have to read down a few posts in the second before info starts to come out.
Essentially, seems that it was an early foray into higher end with better construction, perhaps to test the waters for what eventually became RLPL.
Not the same thing, older, at least the same quality (possibly better).

Exactly. Also pre-RLPL made in England.

I think this makes it over the bar, but if not then its damn cool: Paul Stuart by Samuelsohn, moss green linen-wool blend with MOP buttons. At 43 short, it's so frustratingly close to my size. It's within length range that I can barely make it work. Needs some waist suppression for me, and I haven't yet decided if I'm willing to make that investment.

Anyone got any good tips for taking photos in a small apartment? Went to take some yesterday and couldn't get any damn good oens in this small bedroom I'm renting in NYC. I see some people use kitchen tables but the lighting is poor there and I'd feel kind of like a dick for comandeering the kitchen (which is basically part of the living room in manhattan) for pictures of clothes. I want to post though -_- so badly that I'm thinking I may just have to do that. Don't really wanna use my bed or the floor, but if I have to I just may.

Edit: Wes, I need that Pendleton in my life.

Judging from the pricing on his other stuff....I think he forgot the other 5 in front.

I have a made in England RL shirt that I picked up at a MARSHALLS about 20 years ago. The label is the same purple color. It is a trim fit, much trimmer than the usual POLO fit of that era. The quality is excellent. The shirt has french cuffs and a contrasting white collar. The shirt is labeled a 16x34 but fits more like a 15.5. As you know the first RLPL stuff was made in England. CHESTER BARRIE made the suits and sport coats. Later on RALPH switched most of his purple label production to Italy.

I'm so excited! bounce2.gif

 

I'm headed to a sartorial event tonight, which involves a men's consignment shop, the owner's birthday, free wine/ champagne, free food, and 50% off the entire store. I may be in trouble.

That "free" wine/champagne may end up being the most expensive hooch you've ever encountered.
