    Back of the Knowles is totally different. Knowles has a center back vent.
    But I'd guess that the Owens does fit similar to the Knowles.

    Sorry, but they're not the same jacket.

    Unless you try it on you dont know how it fits. The Knowles fits different than the Wilkins and theyre the exact same jacket in different colors. RRL stuff isnt consistant just because it looks the same

    Do you own both?
    No 2 jackets of the exact same style in the exact same size are the same with RRL. (sizing is notoriously all over the place)
    So I highly doubt that you can safely say 2 different style jackets fit exactly the same...

    Are RRL leather jackets a bit overpriced?

    i would say so, and i'm fully aware of the risk being called "cheap" by some RRL enthusiasts.. i have a gainful employment but i don't think i ever bought anything RRL at retail prices...

    At retail? Of course, but then again so are most designer clothing items. It all depends on whether or not 'you' particularly find the item 'worth it'. The markup on RRL and Ralph in general is pretty substantial, as in the end when accounting for sales and outlets the average transaction prices are but a fraction of what MSRP is. For example, the knowles jacket that has been batted around here a bit I believe retailed for $1600, however during sales it was available for well under $1K.

    That being said, there are certainly some RRL pieces that are more 'worth' their MSRPs than others, but again, most of that is a matter of opinion. I find the RRL MIUSA rigid jeans at $250 MSRP much more reasonable then say a standard wool cardigan at ~500 MSRP.

    I have bought 2 pairs of jeans from them. 1 for me & 1 for my wife. They were not tagged but that was stated in the sale. You can bargain with them as well. I ended up getting $50 off of the listed price. They price things all over the place. Sometimes you will find an item for $220 but then find the same item in same sz for $179 so look out for the lower price & bargain against that. Jeans were perfectly fine & new.

    private sale starts oct 25. unfortunately many of the peices I want aren't included. Really surprised they aren't including a majority of the indigo peices in the sale..

    Very very rude every time I've messaged this seller. Their pricing is very odd and all over the place and a lot of times the jeans are "new" but altered, which is weird. And they never have tags, which is also weird.

    There are far better sellers on ebay who are friendly and willing to negotiate reasonably.
