    RL of course. preppy british styles with some sex. some italian style with sex in black label. fits and quality overall tops bb by a longshot.


    bb is just your trad, sackish, american potbelly, AAAC portly , flower in your lapel hole, straw hat and seersucker, look-at-me-i - sit -alone-at -the -corner table at starbucks/borders middle-aged guy with nothing to do , look


    the comparison is a disrespect to rl.






    LOL....So true. So true!

    Who's going to check that we don't do that?

    o noes!

    i will have to add more ">>>>>>" to my carefully constructed pyramid of propositional logic.

    Can't pick just one. Have lots of both. It depends on what I am buying.

    In particular I like Brooks' accessories and neckwear better.

    BB's socks are better than RL's socks, hand down.

    Ralph Lauren. Though we don't get to see a lot of good stuff over here. Worst for BB, the sales saff don't even know what a Blazer/Sport Coat is.

    I really enjoy the Ralph Lauren style, and I try to emulate it when I dress. Brooks seems like a quality brand to me, and I have a few things from them which I enjoy. I would do RL over BB every day.

    I, too, judge a brand by its socks.

    BB saves time. You don't have to wade through as much garbage to find the quality.

    I voted for BB because their suit jackets come with trousers.
