    I'm actually liking Rugby and Denim and Supply alot right now. Purple is too expensive for me and the polos from D&S and Rugby have a little more "personality" than Polo. D&S reminds me on AllSaints SpitalFields but cheaper and Rugby is like more mature A&F.

    Just got a few D&S items from the recent RL sale. I really like their T's and sweatshirts, very comfortable and very fitted at an awesome price. In fact, I find the fit better than the PRL/RLBL stuff, at least on the sweatshirts.

    I ordered a bunch of Polo stuff as well as D&S during this current sale. Almost sent all of the D&S button downs back. They're cut for teenagers -- .5 size smaller than Polo or RRL. A shame because the price was right (not so much the quality)...

    I own a almost a dozen D&S items, I actually love the button down shirts, they are slim fitted. If you don't want a slim fit then most of the RL lines aren't for you. It's no slimmer then my RLBL, RLPL, or rugby items.
    As for the quality I also have to strongly disagree, the quality on all the button ups I have from them is on point. The fabrics aren't BL or PL quality but it's to normal RL standards.

    I've found this to not be the case. I even measured the 3 Polo RL button down shirts vs the 4 D&S button down shirts. On average the D&S shirts measured 1" less in the chest.

    Sorry for introducing actual data into the discussion!

    Which model & which cut? I have a few dozen work shirts from RL and they all very drastically depending on model and cut, even with in a single product like (RLBL, RLPL, RL Polo, Blue Label, ect....) The other factor is "made to tuck: or "made to be un-tucked"

    Uh, the material quality and construction are obviously lower quality than RL's other lines. You have to be very careful with this line...

    Same works, same workers line @ the plant in China. Now you're just talking to talking, I personally own multiple shirts from this line and they are at least the same grade quality if not better then normal RL Polo shirts. Black Label is a notch up, RRL is also an notch up & Purple label is several, but this is made by the same people on the same machines as every piece of RL Polo that comes out of China.

    Quality is very hit or miss. Mostly miss, but if you're careful and patient you can pick up some fairly nice pieces at low prices once they've gone on sale. I have a few D&S shirts that I like very much but I do return most of what I order.

    Gotta agree with Bl@ster...I bought a couple of flannels Winter 12', read the measurements and picked out my sizes according to the size chart..When I receive the items..one was baggy and way too big while the other was too snugged...Returned both items and never will I purchase from that RL line again...
    My suggestion spend a little more and get on RRL gear...quality

    bl@ster is correct with the hit or miss statement. Not a line I would buy online but I have a few nice pieces that exceed in value the sales prices I paid.

    Hey guys! Been following the chat and trying to determine what size I would need in a D&S polo. Does it run like Classic Polo or Custom? In Classic I can wear a L. In Custom I need an XL. Please help! Thanks in advance.

    I've never reached heights more vaunted than Polo, but I consider the Denim & Supply tee I bought to be of comparable quality (not that I rate the quality of Polo particularly highly at all...)

    Concession: I only have the tee whereas bl@ster appears to have had the benefit of experience with a wider range of Denim & Supply pieces.

    Hello,
    I'm new to this so I'm not sure if I'm doing this correct. I'm desperately looking for a pair of the benavides leather look a like jeans size 34x34. I know they are discontinued but if anyone knows of anywhere I can find a pair of these or is willing to part with a pair please let me know. Willing to pay full retail price if not more. Thanks

    What do people think of Denim and Supply t-shirts and sport shirts compared to RRL?

    I was looking at the designs and I like some of the DS stuff and not being hugely impressed with the quality of any of the RRL shirts I have I almost wonder if the quality of DS would be on par but I have never owned or seen any DS products in person. They have nice indigo dyed shirts and slub fabrics.
