    received my order today. What I purchased:

    The Cotton Metal-Button Workshirt in red, blue, and gray. Shirt look identical to several RRL shirts that I own. Fit is identical which happens to be a full cut. Common for a "work-shirt." Primary difference is the weight of the fabric. The rugby shirt is really lightweight. When you consider that its a "work-shirt" the fabric is too thin, imo. Good buy at $40. Also, the website advertises it as having metal buttons but only the gray shirt has metal buttons. Red and blue shirts have plastic buttons. Measurements (LARGE):

    Chest: 23.5
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 29
    Sleeve Length: 25.5

    The railroad striped jeans are awesome. I have bigger thighs and these fit great from the waist down to the ankle. Its a soft, substantial jean fabric that is comfortable out of the box. I was a bit weary buying stripped jeans but after mixing them up with a BoO button-up and a pair of white bucks, they looked great

    I also purchased a blue chambray rounded-collar dress shirt tagged 16. This fits slightly slimmer than the custom fit offered by Polo RL. Unlike the workshirts, this is real chambray shirt. Fabric is thick as hell. If I keep it, I would only be able to wear it in the winter; too hot for summer. Measurements:

    Measurements (16):

    Chest: 22.5
    Shoulder: 18
    Sleeve: 26

    Last but not least, picked up a striped university oxford. Nice shirt, not as nice as RRL. biggest difference is the fabric. Thats probably going to be a re-occurring theme; looks like RRL, craftsmanship is similar, but the Rugby fabric is less substantial.

    Measurements (L):

    Chest: 22.5
    Shoulder: 18

    I few members pm'ed me for measurements. Hopefully this answers some of your questions. If you need any other measurements, pm. Or you might me better off ordering straight from rugby. Its free shipping after you buy a few shirts and return shipping is free as well.

    nice, but I still probably wouldn't buy stripped jeans, in my opinion, rather limited use.

    Nice shirt. I thought Rugby only offered S/M/L/XL sport shirt sizing. Might have to look into that one. Is it available online or was that an in-store purchase? (As someone mentioned, their website is so slooooooow to load, perhaps even slower than the new SF!)

    They have two types of fabric. If you buy the sale stuff now your fabric is thinner. If you buy winter sale time, it'll be thicker fabric.

    i want to purchase some shirts, how is the fit like?
    i see they dont have listings for different fits like RL ie. custom, classic, slim.

    are they all classic fit?

    All four of my sweaters are from Rugby. They go on sale and they're a great value. Quality material and athletic cuts.

    Haaa, you were right! you mentioned you had a pair. What do you wear them with? I was super conscious not to overdue it with the different patterns.

    I wear white, off white, yellow and blue based t shirts, solid color button downs, some plaid, henleys, converse, vans, spring courts, etc. Simple casual stuff. Canvas belts if you need one. Love how these fit on you. They look perfect.
