    didn't RRL just start selling their stuff online from their own website. Doesn't seem so far-fetched that TBS thought they could do the same

    "RRL Goes Online

    After years of being Ralph Lauren's best kept secret, RRL launched its initial online website last week. The functionality of the blog is wonky, but once you sort it out, you'll get a nice sample of what the vintage brand offers. While it's cool that the label is immediately available to many more people, I'm hopeful that the quality and unique style of the line isn't compromised. Below are a few pages from the lookbook, but when you have time (and patience) take a tour of the individual offerings on the site. "

    I agree, if they're selling it on RL.com now, might as well dump the whole under the radar thing altogether. And maybe they were considering doing just that and actually did tell the TBS people they would be able to sell online (as the blog post claims), before eventually changing their minds. Maybe the rationale is now to avoid online competition. Why am I talking about this? I don't care.

    What I imagine would have happened is that the reps would have said they 'should be able to, hopefully' sell it online and then yanked the plug once the order was done, which is believable IMO

    Been browsing through SZ WAYWT lately, and the women there are killin' it. Consistently better than most of the guys.

    As a disclaimer, it's not like I'm going to start posting more interesting fits as a result of this. I've been wearing cuffed raw jeans and an AA henley pretty much the entire time.

    Also, my motivation to leave the house has waned considerably since I've been painfully sick as of Tuesday night or so. Can't even drink beer. It's terrible. It's like, I want to want a beer, but I really don't want a beer. :confused:

    Vegas is a fashion wasteland with roided out dudes and fake boobed orange women. Never seen so many platform heels in my life.

    RL is a marketing genius. How many other fashion brands can pull off such wide breath? RL can build a new Club Monaco in the malls, yet still have higher end boutiques like TBS begging to carry RRL. And they even have RL brand paint! Reminds me Harley Davidson.

    There's one chick on SZ that wears like all Ann/Rick that kills it every time she posts a look. I know that probably doesn't narrow it down too much, but I do not remember her s/n
