I never felt a desire to try any Black Label clothing. It was all sort of like something else, plain, but with a stylish trim cut. But so what? Give me a reason to WANT it. PL on the other hand has, as others have pointed out, always pushed the envelope a bit. It is either a big hit or a big miss IMO. But when they hit it, I love it. RRL, is the odd member of the family. All of the other looks and brands mix and match. You can grow up wearing one and then blend into the next. Not so much with RRL. I've been a fan of it since it's early days and Ralph Lauren Polo Country before that. These sub brands are good for building the romance of the RL lifestyle, but they are unique. SInce PRL is a publicly traded company, the bottom line and performance is key. The next time we have a recession you will see big adjustments in companies like Polo. Not sure RRL will make it. In the mean time I will enjoy it. As I did Polo Country in its heyday.
