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.

Also, the RLPL fit is very different than the RLBL fit. Black label is fitted for people with no fat. Would have looked great on me when I was 20 but terrible now.

RLPL suits have an amazing fit, even for anyone with a few extra pounds. The cut is still slim, but RLPL has always been great at contouring your shape to look slim while still being comfortable. RLBL is just made for stick figures. You will be very uncomfortable in RLBL if you are over 15%-20% body fat.

Also the Anthony model has too much should padding imo. And the trousers are very low rise.

Not all RLBL (or should we say the new entry RLPL...) are Anthony, Nigel/Daniel both have much much less padding (not sure about Austin). I wouldn't call Anthony super low rise either, at least in 36, Drake in Custom fit (i.e. the good RLPL stuff) is just a bit higher in rise compare to Anthony.
