A sample of Ralph's charisma.
The main thing are the actual sleeve buttons, so you can adjust the sleeves and then create functional/working cuff buttons
I got it for $250 (lucky me) and there are a few in eBay for $700-800$ on a MSRP of $4995
There has been some discussion here as to the relative quality of the suppliers to RLPL clothing, is there a consensus on how Caruso stacks up with the others?
sleeve buttons to create working cuffs if adjustments are needed
is there a consensus on how caruso sourced clothing compares with other RLPL sources?
Thanks... so it's not narcotics or Mr. Lifshitz's charisma.
BTW I bought a cashmere sweater recently that came with a similar small bag. Contained a sample of the manufacturer's recommended washing powder. Only found this out after I tried snorting it.
Quoting own post as EDIT is giving errors.
Caruso is top notch. Their RLPL clothing Is pretty close to Kiton, brioni, etc... In quality.
i found a very detailed 'autopsy' of a RLPL caruso jacket that seems to have a very similar construction , if not the same
quite an interesting article
Ah I just saw that article the other day, the blog rocks!
Yup, JD is the man.
Who makes the Vans-looking sneaker shoes by Polo Ralph Lauren?
Good day guys,
does anyone know who made this?
Update to be confirmed. I stopped by the soho Rl today to inquire about MTM and was told that St Andrews would be making RLBL MTM as of the next MTM event, The sales rep did not comment on RTW but I'm guessing this is the last Caruso season for RLBL. Can others confirm with their sales reps?
Actually, I went to Madison and they said that Purple Label was going back to St. Andrews. They said that Caruso's purple label was too similar to the Black Label aesthetic.
Would be helpful to know with whom you both spoke, as some SAs are more keyed-in than others.
