    they are just milking the fad i guess... agreed its pretty annoying. jcrew has their version but wouldnt ever buy

    so other than rrl, left field looks like a decent alternative. anyone have a pair and can attest? also i remember LVC having something too

    CM is fine, but they havent offered a rigid selvedge chino. id jump to CM in a heartbeat over grabbing those jcrew wallace and barnes ones. maybe cm will eventually do one. they've been on a selvedge and chambray kick so one can hope for next spring

    Can anyone comment on the sizing for the Wool Shawl Cardigan? I'm don't have any RRL, but am an athletic 180lbs 41" chest @ 6'3". My usual conundrum is between a medium for a slim fit but the sleeves are too short and a large for good sleeves but too baggy in the body. Would really like someone to tell me the Medium has ~35" sleeves or the Large is a size slimmer than usual.

    I own this sweater... You will either be a medium or small in this, believe it or not. Most likely medium. I have a 42" chest and a medium fits me well. The sleeves are long (I cuff them), so you should be fine either way.

    Lot of the stuff this past spring / summer was China. Not sure what exactly but when browsing racks in store pretty much all the seasonal stuff was? They keep all the construction details like the hidden rivets too
