    I want those BADLY myself, but I am waiting for them to go on sale. Don't buy them all!

    Non sequitur: I was surprised to see Rugby RL stuff in Century 21 yesterday.

    Am actually wearing their green varsity cardigan right now, which I get enormous compliments on.

    While I hesitate (and don't) pay full retail for their stuff (as mentioned above, enough product is left during their sales that it's keen to wait), I love the athletic cut of their tops. I've had my eye on their cricket sweater from this season - soon as it goes on sale...

    Can anyone comment on the length of the tweed sport coats? Are they standard, or cut shorter. Thx!

    not TB or BBBF short, but short. It fits well, but construction is definitely NOT up to PRL

    I'm considering one of the Newbury jackets. I'm just looking for a well-fitting tweed, and haven't had much luck so far!

    you should go to the store, I think they have a grey tweed as well, fits very well off the rack (at least for me), though construction is not to the suiting crowd standard.

    Yep that's what I'm waiting for as well. I remember when Rugby first opened I bought a bunch of things at full retail, returned everything except a sweater, and re-bought a month later at 80% off most things. Hopefully they'll start the sale by december this year.

    University oxfords are good and come in some nice colors. I have seen the white, green, and blue. Green is a little too bright for me personally. Would love to try the purple/lavender.

    Tail is short enough imo to wear untuck (I stand at 5'10). After many washes, the fit is pretty good, size small. I wish the collar was a bit more beefier/longer points and collar to sit higher up like some TB oxfords.

    I did notice a little that the sleeve length may have shortened due to washes over time, but in general, I consider these shirts for casual wear and not to be mixed in use with more MC attire.

    Apparently, "the tweed run" or whatever is somewhat limited edition. The knickers I ordered are almost gone (no size 32 hehe) so if you want them, I'd hop on it real quick!

    well, if you're in NYC, just go to the University and 12th, I am sure they would have most in stock
