    I was at Saks today also and spotted some Samuelsohn for Saks sportcoats which were nice. Also saw some nice grey trousers (might have been Isaia) but at $795 they were a bit rich for my blood.

    Sorry if I missed this but do they carry RRL?

    Thanks. Based on all those that have been I'll temper my expectations for when I do go. Charvet shirts are expensive; I recall them being $300 plus at Nordstrom Rack in the States. I don't quite get OTR stuff that are priced higher than bespoke but clearly there is a market for those.

    I didn't notice any but didn't really look through the Ralph Lauren section closely. I noticed RLPL but as othertravel noted above, it's apparently not the good stuff.

    RRL would be really good to have.

    I'd say that the standout stuff would be Isaia, Charvet and Corthay, the latter two being new to the market. There's another high end suit label that's new to the market but cannot place the name.



    No RRL, sadly.

    And in case anybody here is wondering: no SLP men's clothes or shoes either. @Steel28

    Charvet isn't new to the market. Holts Men had them for maybe a couple years before they parted ways roughly last year.

    I have some great PRL trunks I bought at HR. They were more than that ($90), but They Bay, etc. could have them on sale for close to that.

    Decided to take one for the team and see how Sole Survivor does with a half sole on some Alden Longwings.

    My impression so far: Cheap ($25), Long wait time (2 weeks at the moment), no Vibrarm offerings but the options seemed just as good

    Inquired about Reheeling ($20 for commando, $30 for Cats Paw heels), and heel taps ($5 plastic, $10 steel) as well.

    Confession to my SF TO bros....

    Kind of got sick of raw denim and the comfort level the last few weeks. I don't have any real high mileage pair that fit like gloves et. Although a new pair of Gustin 13oz are pretty comfy now.

    Walked into Dutil Vancouver yesterday and walked out with NEUW denim indigo rope dye black overdye (2% stretch) and I couldn't be happier.
    Going to make sitting on a plane in a few hrs much more comfortable.

    Don't hate.

    No hate here! Enjoy your new jeans and fuck the denim national socialists.

    But do you really find raw denim that uncomfortable? After a couple days mine always feel beautifully broken in.

    ^^

    My 21 oz Iron Heart denim was soft after a few days as well but I agree, some raw denim like Tellason even at 16oz is a bit of pain haha.

    I've tried on a few pairs of jeans with 2-3% elasticine and it makes such a difference wow. If you're doing anything even remotely snug or skinny and want to break in something raw, trust me, it's a pain and getting them with just a little stretch makes it so much easier to live with.

    Thanks for the info about no RRL at Saks. Does anyone in Toronto carry it? I've been curious about that line for a while.

    Yes Saint Crispin's are something else. It is not every day you get personally measured and advised by Phillip personally, which makes the experience even more memorable.

    We cordially invite everyone to visit the store for some refreshments and to browse new arrivals from Alden, Carmina, and Frank Clegg.
