Ralph Lauren lines, and 'who makes what' - a definitive guide - Page 28

post #406 of 413
I would say the following:

RLPL Savile - Classic fit TTS. No custom fit variant AFAIK
RLPL Drake - Slimmer fit, drop 6, sometimes pleated trousers. Similar fit to RLBL with a classic fit trouser and less padded shoulder
RLPL Drake Custom Fit - Much slimmer fit, best to size up. Custom Fit label inside jacket. Flat front trousers

PRL Custom Fit - Soft shoulder, very slim fitting, best to size up.

I would conclude therefore that Savile fits true to size. Drake fits slightly slimmer. If the label says custom fit (usually on a Drake model) it will fit a size smaller. This ties in with PRL models that have a custom fit variant. They generally fit a size smaller also.

The fit seemed very similar to my RLBL Anthony DB. I compared the two and they are almost identical. The jacket shape is the same, the lapels are the same dimension, but the shoulder padding is much less and there is of course plenty of handwork, both externally and on the internals of the suit.

pics??? Would love to see this bad boy...........

thank you. I must say that sizing up depends on your shape. To me: 178 and 70kg, no need to size up. Drakes custom fits me perfecty, from shoulders to lenght, the sizing is really excellent both on PL et PRL custom fit.

Yes, of course body shape is a determining factor. Conversely you might find the same size in a non-custom fit model to be too large.

I tried on my usual size in a Drake Custom last week and I couldn't even get it my shoulders into it.

Very informative.

Any thoughts on the early RLPL by Chester Barrie suits? I believe the model was called the Douglas.

Concerning PL pants, I have seen 3 references of cut :

- Madison : very large
- Harrison : normal cut to me, even if it is described as slim straight. True to size.
- Eaton : it's described as straight slim fit on the website, but harrison also and and harrison cut is definitely not a slim straight fit. Never try Eaton cut.

any other information on Purple label pants sizing ?
