Don't forget FUBU. I have to say that I am very impressed with the 2 LRL suits I have that were made in Canada which is why I asked. Very nice materials and the suits are well put together. Even the cotton one I have that was made in China is really nice (all bought from STP). My other suits & coats are from some of the higher end makers and comparatively and they hold up very well against the comp at their price point even despite the fusing.

Surely the stuff in Saks et al. is of a different maker. There is a clear difference in quality between what is in discounters and full lines IMO.

yeah but michael kors is michael kors. whatever is at saks or at the discounter is by the same michael kors. at least that is what i think.

the lauren line is not owned by RL but by this group.


unless there is a separate entity of michael kors but is still called 'Michael Kors'

Ah. Not that I'm a huge defender of MK, but Peerless produces the diffusion "MICHAEL Michael Kors" line.

The Lauren line is owned by RL, Peerless holds a license.

AFAIK MK mainline is still done by GIBO, Marc Jacobs too, I think.

i always thought that Michael Kors should call his diffusion line "Kors Light"

I have a few Michael Michael Kors lightweight sweaters purchased a few years ago, and after several washings coloration has remained bright and wonderful. I often receive more compliments from these relatively inexpensive staples than some of my other pricier pieces.

Does anybody know, who makes the RL Polo Golf stuff, that seems to turn up quite often recently?

I just got a tweed jacket and it says Made in Italy, but it lacks the inside tag.

Any info would be appreciated.

I am waiting on a Polo black and white nailhead that is a Made in the USA older vintage and looks to have alot of the same features that my RLPL Chester Barrie era stuff has, it actually looks like a CB era RLPL suit. Same cut to the pants, same side adjusters and a 2/3 roll jacket with a ticket pocket. Material seems to be the same as my brown nailhead RLPL DB, just a different color. We will see.

I've read the 9 pages of the thread and still dont know who makes Rugby suits. I heard that Caruso. Is that right? Quality comments?
post #134 of 450
I have seen RRL suit made by Caruso, but not sure if it's all made by Caruso. Quality is not up to Caruso made for RLBL for sure though.
post #135 of 450
Hey, does anybody know which line makes this particular Polo?



From the description, I'm guessing it could possibly be "PRL". But if anyone happens to know where I could purchase it, it'd be even better.
