Ralph Lauren lines, and 'who makes what' - a definitive guide - Page 3

post #31 of 450
it is bad marketing for ralph lauren, for their sports-flags shirts to be made anywhere other than the country that it's sporting. it is a bit of a turn off to show your american pride, when the shirt is not made in usa

whatever happened to the blue label "signature" line as mentioned previously in this thread? i own a few, but haven't seen any at the boutique (either on rodeo or south coast plaza). do they not make these anymore?

They fit great. They were for sale at that price and were gone within a few hours after someone posted that on SF...

afraid not
I think it was discontinued in 2006 or '07
there are a few hanging around at discounters (and one that I can't seem to sell )
I think the problem was lack of broad explanation of where it fit in the lineup
purple label and black label are clearly different lines and styles vs Polo, but the signature blue label was seen as PRL by many, despite the higher price tag and better construction.. pity, as I, along with many others here really liked the line

RRL is pronounced "Double R L." It is the named after the Ralph Lauren's ranch, which may or may not exist. RRL stands for Ralph and Ricki Lauren, with Ricki being his wife. The symbol, or icon, with the backwards R, the regular R, and the L, are meant to resemble a brand that would be burned onto the hind quarters of cattle.

Accordingly, the Double RL items are western inspired, or ranch life inspired. It is a pet project of Ralph Lauren's and the quality is excellent across the board. Of all the RL lines, it may be the most consistent in terms of quality.

The Double R L ranch does exist and is located in Ridgeway, CO between Montrose and Telluride. The ranch is surrounded by a wooden fence the locals call the "million-dollar fence" which is the supposed cost of the large fence.

It appears to me that the RLPL no longer has ready to wear suits carried either in the B&M stores or the website. I have been told that you can do MTM with the line however.

PS: earlier this year I did see some RTW stock in the Atlanta Buckhead store, but nowhere else I have visited.

The mansion is full of RTW RLPL tailored clothing.

I've seen the silver label only once and, while still nothing special, it seemed to be at least a little better than the Green Label. Still nowhere near the standard Blue Label, of course. Seemed about on par with Abboud/HSM.

Chevy Chase MD Ralph Lauren Store has RLPL suits and sportcoats.

It's well established that the company that makes Gucci shoes, Sesto Meucci, makes these.

On a related note, the RL Restaurant in Chicago (next door to the Mansion) occasionally serves beef raised on his ranch. It's called the Double RL Filet. Cool!
