But even though they are half canvassed, I would place them on top of the level. If i get to choose between Hickey Freeman(fully canvassed) vs Polo Blue Label, I would pick Polo.
Thank you for your input. What about the shoulder padding (natural, light/soft or heavy) and silhouette? Can you tell me anything about them?

Shoulder paddings are on the light side.

Silhouette is different on the models such as Polo 1, Polo 2, Bradford, Garrison, etc.

I've been looking for a fall/winter coat and enjoy some of the RLBL styles.  After viewing some of these jackets available on ebay, it appears they are made in China.  This surprised me as the RLBL items I am familiar with are made in Italy.  Is this a knockoff?

lots of RLBL stuff are made in China

Interesting, didn't know that. RL's website says Made in Italy for this item. A touch of false advertising there. I would return an item I paid full retail for if it arrived with a made in China tag. At the ebay price it may still be a decent deal, depending on quality.

Can anyone comment on the quality of these items or this jacket specifically? Am i better of looking at similar styles from other makers?

If RL site says made in Italy then it's made in Italy, if it says made in china then it's Mae on china. Now only purple label would do these none tailored clothe stuff made in Italy. Rlbl made in china is good quality though

Hello,

Concerning Purple Label shirts, made in Italy, does anybody knows the difference between Aston and Keaton cut ?
Concerning pants, madison is very "classic" (by classic, I mean roomy) and Harisson is slim.

thanks

The difference is primarily the collar.  Keaton is a fairly extreme cutaway and Aston is a spread collar.  The body cut is generally the same, although there are "tailored fits" in both Keaton and Aston models (specifically sub-tagged as "tailored fit").

Ok, thank you very much for this information !

Who makes PRL 'made in Italy' knit ties?

post #372 of 437

Worth picking up PRL mainline made in Italy shoes (Meucci, I think?) for personal use? I've read varying reports that some are Goodyear, others are not, that some are terrible, and others have held up well.

Do Ralph Lauren Black Label and Purple Label stuff ever get put on sale? I'm hoping they might for Black Friday or the Christmas shopping season.

 

If so, what online stores should I be keeping a look out for?

post #374 of 437
Ralph lauren's own online store do have them (RLBL suits) on sale from time to time
post #375 of 437

On just the suits? Any chance they also do for shirts and jeans?
