There are 2 different quality and price-points for the RL Italian stuff. There is the REAL RLPL stuff, which retails for around $1100. Then there is the cheap stuff for around $4-600. The cheaper line isn't worth more that $200. I wouldn't pay over $150 for them. The higher-end stuff is definitely superior in construction and finish. It is close to EG quality. Definitely better quality than C&J for RL stuff. Styling is totally different, so you can't really compare.
These are the boots. They fall somewhere between on pricepoint, but they are RL, not PL. Can you tell anything by the pics?
