    Nobody cares about Al's Clothing in SF... Seriously, do you even own anything RL makes that you didn't thrift or buy used on eBay? Trololololol.

    Nice review, btw.

    you imbecile, I own HUNDREDS of pieces of RRL but as the years have gone by, so many of them are becoming REPEATS or simple derivatives of one another (oh my, another wabash vest, with different pockets! RRL_Clothing must have it!)

    nobody has done Brown Wabash so I sourced it myself and it's awesome and one of a kind

    nobody had real authentic old fashioned wide herringbone tweed except for London Lounge who commissioned it as a small run in Scotland, so I got that and am having a pea coat made that fits better than any RRL standard size jacket!

    having a tailor like Al's Attire around who can make anything you ask is like sartorial nirvana and he makes stuff for many of the Japanese repro companies with their brands on it. It's like having the RRL production dept making stuff I give them.

    I source my own unique fabrics, keep the details I like, remove the costumey stuff RRL tends to put on their to goose the MSRP price and end up with something A LOT MORE WEARABLE IN 2014 rather than 1925

    THINK

    p.s. btw, who is Al's Attire? learn something

    Yawn.

    I believe this was commented upon earlier, but I cannot find it on any search.

    Anyone buy the Ltd Edition Straight Leg loomstate and care to comment on how they washed it -- and what the results were?

    RRL_Clothing, you are a complete nut job

    OH! the I-R-O-N-Y in your going to outlets to resell RRL on eBay and then telling this board we can't afford RRL

    LOL

    and when Ralph decides next spring that his new theme is Haight Ashbury Bohemian, I'm sure you'll be first in line

    or The Village People

    whatever Ralph sends from on high, you'll buy

    I didn't say the board can't afford RRL, I said YOU can't afford RRL that's why you have to settle for Jcrew and custom made knock-offs. You remind me of when I was arguing with some guy on here a few months back about comparing RRL to what you'd find at the Army Surplus Store, stop looking at RRL from a utilitarian perspective and get a clue about fashion. I should REALLY stop feeding the trolls .

    Last time I checked Icons never make it to outlets and never go on sale and generally speaking less than 1% of RRL makes it to outlet, so you are wrong, again. I don't see what business has to do with what I buy personally. It's like saying if I own a Toyota dealership, I can't buy a Porsche. I sell many RRL items I buy cheaply because it is profitable, but also buy myself many, many RL/RRL items at full MSRP because I actually love and support the brand and know well the items I buy will never make it to outlets.

    I like RRL's aesthetic and some of the garments have nice fabrics, but in general I feel as though the fabrics aren't anything special. Their knits this AW were largely very disappointing in terms of the fabrics. Must have tried almost ten different sweaters and only two were nice based on the fabric and the fits were all over place. Even my varsity jacket (the AW13 version with the black cat), which I love, doesn't feel that great. Really get the feeling that you're simply paying for the name with RRL more than anything else.

    Have to mention though that the tweed bag I tried from AW13 was nice. Perhaps the accessories are of nicer quality.

    I can't afford RRL? LOL!

    I won't even dignify that with an answer

    the reason I bought the W&C shirt was because RRL hasn't offered anything in that color, in that weight for the past 10 yrs

    it's unique, it works with all my other RRL stuff just like Mister Freedom items I own do or Freewheelers or Risging Sun or the stuff I have Al's Attire make for me

    DUH!!!!!

    imagine, W&B sourced a better and different fabric than RRL! IMAGINE!!!?? OMG! my brain exploded

    QUESTION: who would Ralph Lauren himself rather meet - me in my brown wabash vest that he's never offered and London Lounge tweed pea coat or you dressed head to toe only in what he sells you like a brainless mannequin?

    YOU ARE A BORE

    p.s. RRL's design team has visited Al's for ideas - go figure!

    You sound hysterical man. Give it a rest you are coming across as a complete SAP. I am pretty sure he would rather meet someone who wears his clothing than some delusional grungy hipster who thinks he's on the cutting edge of fashion.

    Come back next time you find something 80% off to brag about from Jcrew, I'm sure we all would love to hear about it and I'm sure your $35 brown chambray will compliment that rare and exclusive "brown wabash" vest very well... which by the way, RRL made a brown Wabash vest, and matching sportcoat around 2008ish, so your ignorance is truly astonishing. I thought you were joking at first but now see you are just crazy. I don't expect you to know that since you probably just discovered RRL a few seasons ago.

    Quote: Bullshit. Nobody from RRL's "design team" will visit a no-name rinky dinky shop in the middle of the Misson for "ideas" on a billion dollar label. I can see you will say just about anything at this point.

    you are like a drug addict who resells drugs to other druggies to afford his habit then criticizes the other druggies for buying from him

    make sure to go hit the RL outlets this weekend to resell on eBay, because that's what everybody who can 'afford' RRL does I'm sure, right? RIGHT???

    I'm pretty sure you are the only drug addict here, judging from your incomprehensible asinine posts.


    No.. they clearly buy from Jcrew at 80% off and talk about their Filipino tailor nonstop.

    fucking mods seemingly only give a shit if someone asks for a code. maybe RRLC is a mod? cant imagine he would be any less effective than whatever joke of a mod is supposed to care for SW&D threads

    i wont even bother @LA Guy to intervene for the benefit of the greater community. This has been going on for YEARS now and I can only imagine how many including myself just stopped checking this thread.

    Content: my first RRL article (unlined linen SC) is on the way, but has apparently been detained for inspection by the Canada Border Services Agency because it's too cool, or because they can't tell the difference between a white-ish sportcoat and a pound of blow.

    Sure. I wear RRL as well.

    If someone is being a racist or is attacking your wife and kids, report it. Or if there is a specific, personal attack that was not responded to in kind.

    Otherwise, use the ignore button.

    That said, @RRL CLOTHING, some of your stuff is pretty borderline. Consider yourself on notice.

    Right. Second thing, stop telling each other how much someone can or can't afford RRL.

    Seriously.

    It's just unfortunate that interesting, on topic posts and questions get completely drowned out by insecure people and their pissing matches.
