While I made my quick trip through LA this past weekend I swung by the new RRL store on 8150 Melrose (next to Fred Segal.) If you're at all interested in the line or just Americana/workwear in general then I highly recommend you check it out.
A few notes:
-Opened on 10/31 and built like a garage.
-Bigger collection than RRL Malibu.
-The flannels definitely contend with Woolrich and EG.
-RL brought in a few employees from the NYC store to work here. Spoke a bit with one of them and she was super helpful and knowledgeable (and cute.)
-Their pants are nothing short of incredible. They may be a bit too distressed or "lived-in" for the SF crowd but the materials and attention to detail made them pieces of art. One pair was made of a material similar to what firemen would wear on the job: thick, heavy, and coated. Not sure how I'd incorporate it into a fit but they really made me want to find a way.
-Denim: I'm a fan of the low straight cut. It's a style that would go over very, very well here on the forum.
Here's a link to a decent write-up with pics:
