    Not really keen on the RLBL shoulders. Too wide I'm afraid.

    I'll post an after tailoring picture as a follow-up for this one. I'm way excited to see the results!

    OP, sorry if I hijacked your thread. Wanted to contribute since I've been eyeing my own RLBL.

    More RLBL fit pics: Thoughts?

    1. Nigel Model in 40R. Fits much much better imo. The shoulder seems softer too.

    2. RLBL Anthony in 40R, double breasted. The shoulders seem a bit better than previous 40R models I tried. Maybe because it's double breasted?

    Here's a comparison pic from the back:

    The first pic is an Anthony in 40R

    The second is a Nigel in 40R

    Do the shoulders look better on the Nigel?

    Nigel is definitely better for you. RLBL used to have the Daniel model a few years back and they are only SC but the shoulder is excellent....very soft. I think Nigel is the new Daniel (although from last time I checked, it was not as soft as Daniel)

    The back is cleaner on the Anthony. Also, there's no pulling on the button on the 42R Anthony, whereas there are wrinkles around the fastened button on the Nigel, indicating tightness. I would get the Anthony, but the most important question is your comfort when wearing the jackets.

    Yep I have an RLBL Daniel SC and it is absolutely lovely--fantastic soft shoulder. It's a navy twill fabric with a soft, textured hand. The jacket is quarter lined and has buttons under the lapels so that you can button the neck closed. The 38R fits me perfectly. I don't suppose anyone knows what jackets RL made in this cut? I would jump at the chance to buy another.

    I asked RL when I was at the Mansion in May and they told me they no longer produce Daniel sadly.....

    Malford of London have some really nice cashmere Daniel one at the moment (have a look at his website) but I was not quick enough to get the 36R or the 38R :(

    I just joined and found your thread which included the RLBL Nigel in 40R. Would you mind providing your pit-to-pit, shoulder and sleeve measurements for comparison sake?

    That's because they start offering Daniel again now. I saw them in the website for the new season
