Does anyone have any info on this label? Thanks

I think that's their old signature label (i.e. Their previous version of purple label).

Thanks for the reply. The suit is made in the US and I had the impression that Purple Label was made in Italy?

If it's made in the US then it's old (before 90s, of course this is excluding the recent re-introduction of made in the US this past two years), could be polo or signature, I have one signature but that's already the made by Corneliani era (different than the PRL Corneliani ones in that it's full canvassed)

There's a new Saks in Toronto, and they're selling a few current-year "RLPL" (whatever that means now) Anthony suits for about $1500CAD on sale.

That works out to about $1170 USD. Decent staple charcoals and navies.

Is this a decent deal? Sounds expensive with you guys bandying $500 about for "older" RLBL.

Any Amerifriends interested in picking me up a couple blowout RLBLs for a commission?

I would say that is a decent deal. You can definitely do worse. RLPL suits go for $800 -$2000 on ebay or SF, depending on size popularity and how long a seller is willing to hang on to it. The market for RLPL suits isn't too big since it's cost prohibitive for most.

If you would normally buy a suit for around that price then it's a great deal.

HOWEVER, if the suit is actually a black label suit, which they are also calling purple label now, then it's not a good deal. The easy way to tell is by looking at the MSRP. Anything over $4K USD is real Purple Label. You can still get RLBL for $1k the RL site.

Isn't there a "Purple label" & a "Purple Label handmade" now? I could be wrong on that.

Saks has the rebranded RLPL, which used to be Black Label. The high quality Purple Label isn't available in Canada (Holts used to carry it though).

So in my opinion, not that great of a deal.

That makes sense to me. You should pass on this one.

They appear to be RLBL posing as "new" RLPL - if I understand the recent talk about lineage correctly:

Here's one: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=83760666&cp=54803326.54803846&ab=ln_men_cs_suits&parentPage=family

And the other: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=83760646&cp=54803326.54803846&ab=ln_men_cs_suits&parentPage=family

$1379 ea. on sale directly from Ralph Lauren. Maybe not so hot. And definitely not the same grade RLPL you guys are referring to.
