    There aren't many photos posted of members wearing Black Label, yet there is a lot of interest in the line. Here is a photo from a friend's wedding a few months back for those who're curious. Suit, shirt, and tie are all RLBL, from Fall '07. Feel free to critique (though lets avoid making this a "you should wear a tux to an evening wedding" thread)! If others would like to add their own photos, please do so.

    EDIT: The pic I posted might be Blue Label. Let me doublecheck.

    I'm a big fan on RL Black Label, I have a few pieces and I'm picking up my first BL suit tomorrow from the tailor. I had them go with the surgeons cuffs since the sleeve is already prepared to accept them. It's a gray suit with a light chalk stripe. I'll post up pics eventually.

    I really like the armholes and the lapels, but am not wild about the buttons -- not the stance so much as their closeness to each other. The top button doesn't look like it's too low, but the distance between the two buttons seems too short, and that throws off the balance a bit for me. Is that just me?

    my black label suit fits me a little bit long in the jacket hem, but i like it. everything else seems to be perfect as well.

    Satort are those pictures all the same suit? The pinstripe is surprisingly muted. And you look really good in them.

    Yes indeed, all the same suit. The lighting is poor and I was shooting it myself (my wife was gone last night when I took these) so the quality isn't the greatest.

    The subtleness of the pinstripe was a + in my opinion as I find its subdued nature to add interest, but still be versatile like a solid.

    Interesting... your buttons appear to be further apart (vertically) than mine. Do you wear an R?

    I wear an S. Maybe that's why mine are so close together?
