Ralph Lauren lines, and 'who makes what' - a definitive guide - Page 45

post #661 of 707


Unless the suppliers changed overnight most 'Made in the USA' shoes and boots (excluding made in Maine boat shoes and Mocs) are made by AE. You can sometimes seen overstock, still in the Polo boxes at Outlet AE stores.

Sorry if this is asked before, does G&G still make shoes for RLPL?

Yep. But in the US, they're made in a narrow fit. They make them in a UK 'D' width for the US market, which translates to 'C' width in North America. So unless you have skinny feet, good luck!

Thanks for the reply. I have skinny feet but for me the problem is finding a store that has GG for RLPL is too hard lol. I live between Hong Kong/Italy. I tried their flagship store in Hong Kong but it seems there are only CJ for RLPL.

Unfortunately it's a legit shirt.  They made a yellow one too.

Yeah, this is a legit shirt and they made it in yellow as well. $995.00  I have to agree with "edwardh123."  It's a strange request for sure.

FYI that exact suit can be had on sale (I paid under $500, including helming, at the local RL shop.)

When it comes to the shoes, is it the style you like or the particular pair? You have a range of options, for the latter. My usual recommendation is Tricker's but everyone likes different things.

You can have that outfit for much less, or spend the money both items would cost at retail to go bespoke. Both are viable options, though it being your wedding would make me lean towards the latter.

500 is more depends on your size (were they still clearing out RLBL last time?). I would say around 1k is pretty easy 700 probably, 500 I would not count it.

If you want to spend 1k on shoes then option opens quite a bit, order CJ benchgrade from U.K. probably gives you best bang for the buck and ~500

Don't think bespoke is th way to go for a wedding suit unless you have done it before, do you know clear enough to communicate with the tailor about what you want?

That's fair, but it's definitely possible. My size is 40L, so not something super unusual like a 46S.

Agreed, though I consider Tricker's equivalent. Alden is also very solid, if OP wants something more readily available in the US.

I think in this case it wouldn't be difficult. The suit he liked is a very straightforward two button, with nipped waist and strong shoulders, in navy. Hard to go wrong with that.

Additionally, the fabric of that particular suit (which I was wearing today) is extremely light, making it wrinkle very easily in the trousers. Going with bespoke, he could get something a little bit more substantial and make it a workhorse after the wedding, too.

Well it's always communications, what if the tailor cut a perfect American sack with shape but turns out he really wanted English, unless you have a few suit already and some opinion I wouldn't go bespoke.

Alden, Tricker is in the price range but shape wise CJ is definitely closer to RLPL Denver

That's fair. In any case, if OP wants to pay MSRP he may as well that exact cut in MTM.

Anyone familiar with the Rossendale shoe made for the Purple Label line? It looks very similar to the Marlow in calf but there are a few differences. However, it's made in England which leads me to believe it's probably made by Crockett and Jones. There isn't much info online. It's only being sold by Mr. Porter. Thanks!

No experience but they certainly look like Crockett & jones judging from the sole.

Not familiar with that line, but this is a good thread to cross check nail patterns:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/hof-labels-heels-and-nail-patterns-secrets-to-id-the-maker

 

I have a 25 yo pair of beautiful PLRL loafers that only say "Benchmade in England" on them, but have the exact heel/nail pattern ID'd as C&J on the above thread.

 

Those Rossendale's look spot on.

That's C&J.
