    I've been seeing quite a bit of NWT RLPL made in England recently on Ebay. Where is this coming from? Does some store have a large amount of dead stock they are selling now (as St. Andrews has made RLPL suits for several years)?

    Well if you see anything interesting in a 40R, throw me a bone as I'm in the market for a quality 40R suit. There is a lot of RLPL England stuff on the bay now. Judging by some of the styles, it looks like real early RLPL. No idea where this stuff is coming from.

    Was it Chester Barrie that made for RLPL before Saint Andrews? This would be from a while ago, but would be excellent if you like the structured style. I've never seen any of it, and it's possible, I guess, that Ralph Lauren had it made to a different cut.

    Great question, I was wondering exactly the same thing.

    I have seen about 20 suits in the last 2 months with NWT that had to be older suits.
