    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice looking suit. Notice that they didn't populate their measurements section in the auction, so you might want to e-mail them and ask for the measurements. I'm sure someone else can tell you if that tag is a Saint Andrews tag or not. It does look like that tag is for a different size however. Don't forget to go through live.com to get $200 cashback if you buy this.

    What separates a Saint Andrews from a regular?

    Note that the jacket is really long.

    The 34" pants have a 33" inseam--was probably for a very tall, lanky person.

    Corneliani 3B Navy suit in 52E. Good price if you use the cashback. Probably would have grabbed it myself if it wasn't a three button.

    RL doesn't make these suits themselves. They farm out their production to various makers. The more expensive suits get made by better makes. I think Corneliani makes the RL Blue Label or Polo stuff, Caruso makes the Black Label and Saint Andrews (and maybe others - Cantarelli?) make the Purple Label stuff.

    If you go to this thread you can compare the label on the suit you're thinking of buying to the labels that other forum members have identified to determine who made that suit. I'd still get the measurements from the seller and compare them to a suit you own that fits you well.

    This is what happens when you aren't paying attention to when stuff ends. Granted, the winning bidders might have gone much higher, but I'm bummed I forgot to get in on the end of these two:

    If you find yourself forgetting to bid, sniping software would probably help. I know I've lost a couple of items myself because of just forgetting to bid in time.


    Beautiful RLPL StA Coat.

    Clearly a MTM item but the measurements look good for a 40L or 39L.
    It ain't cheap though. . .


    That IS nice.

    What's with those PL labels?

    Yeah,
    That's what I was wondering. Are those legit?

    I've never seen the sleeve tags before, but from the interior tags, it looks like the jackets are "new old stock" from the days when RLPL was being made by Chester Barrie in England. This was a few years back, as far as I am aware, and the manufacturing was then transferred to Italy were the suits are now made primarily by StAndrews.
