    yea all he showed on the runway for this fall winter was grey/black suits, no? i loved the glen plaid tweedy suits from last year. altho the belted back was unfortunate.

    RLPL looks very nice but it's probably very restrictive if the clothes actually fit that close. I think for a trim fit look the chest of the shirt should be about 3 inches larger than your chest size, the waist size can be tighter, maybe 2 inches of extra fabric like most of my MTM shirts.

    They don't fit that close at all. I have to have all my RLPL shirts taken in ALOT to fit correctly.

    i think those models, when trying to move, must do so very carefully.

    But that really isn't surprising, given your drop-11 torso. Anything that would fit your upper-body is going to have to be tapered like whoa to fit your waist. Most Ralph Lauren models would run in fear and/or quiver with giddy gay-boy glee at the sight of your build. EDIT: (no homo, you burly hunka burnin love)

    I once tried on some RLPL and it had an horrible fit. It looked nothing like what the website attempts to depict, even when pinned by a tailor.

    I agree. Everything looks very nice on the website which entices me to get the cc out but after I recieve it, I end up returning nearly everything, due to fit. (or lack of)

    That sounds about right.

    We prefer "no soy gay."

    Lasbar, I've been meaning to say this for a while. What are you smoking and where can I get some? It's like you're on some mellow franco-mescaline high, your writing is like the liner notes to a loopy early Air song...

    You do know my dear Rjman that somebody having breton and Basque ancestors and genes ,living in England after being raised in Paris has not been engineered by mother nature for being anything else than a raving loony...

    Loius-Ferdinand Celine would have been proud of him...

    I usually tailor everything now no matter what so it isn't too big of a deal I guess, though still annoying when it doesn't even seem close. I just bought a rugby and the medium is quite large even for custom fit, I figure I'll take it in on the sides myself on a rainy day. Annoying thing about polos is the split V at the bottom of the seam, reconstructing those is a pain and hard work on my petty sewing machine.

    Even the small will still need the same alterations I reckon. Still debating whether to return it but I might as well keep it for shits and giggles.
