    You are probably out of luck. I searched Google and eBay and nada. Keep searching as you just never know. They are awesome!

    Surprised to see the slim fit Japanese denim going for $340 on the website. A couple of years ago they were $220?

    Why are the cords $420? Are they worth it? Has anyone tried them on and able to comment on sizing?

    Yet another RRL location opening in New York - this time in Brooklyn. Really? Is that necessary? How about a store or two outside of NY?

    RRL tends to attract a lot of hipster/denimbro types so it makes perfect sense. That store will probably do great.

    Brooklyn is a great place for a RRL. There is a huge community of people who fit right in with the RRL aesthetic. If anything it is the perfect demo for a RRL store

    Someone please help!
    I'm looking for rrl engineer boots. Kind of confused bc I've read Ralph Lauren had 2-3 diff companies make these? I don't like the newest design. I'd prefer the Julian made or the ones after that as they look better made. Biggest prob I'm having is to figure out how these run in size. I've read to size up, down etc. some input from someone who has a pair or knows about them please help me out. Thanks in advance!

    Yessir both were made based on designs i wanted. There are a few pieces I love from RRL I wish they wouldnt put thru the ringer by distressing them to hell. Of course some are done fine but some of the pants are a lil over board IMO

    So...I did get the RRL pea coat ... it came down to the Buzz Rickson or the RRL and went with the RRL one ... (btw, the RRL one has the corduroy side pockets as well - maybe all pea coats do, but buzz ricks seems to market this more so)

    Thought I would give some advice on sizing. I normally wear a size medium in RRL shirts, medium in the sweaters, and even got a medium on a twill jacket. However, with the pea coat, a size small fit me perfectly (a medium engulfed me - way too long in body length, arm length, and big all over). so, fyi, you may want to size down.

    ...the pea coat will be a good part of my casual winter coat look this year...

    Whoever did those looks to have done a nice job. I applaud your willingness to take a chance too. They turned out looking just like original RRL yet without the distressing. Well done.........:thumbs-up:

    Here's the RRL Pea Coat from/for this Winter... was told by the SAs the small fit me perfectly (as compared to the medium - which I agreed with...the medium was I think a was a little too long and the shoulders/torso was too big/roomy (even with a sweater)...but if any pea coat experts on this thread think differently let me know before I take the tag off etc...

    BTW had no idea there was a pea coat cult/aficionado following - a lot of people know the different types (WWI, WWII...etc). A friend told me RRL one is more like the the ones put out in WWII (or maybe he said pre--WWII - ca't remember) with the corduroy pockets and the fact its all wool (no synthetic) ...and he told me its a great "weight"...anyway... thought I would share - all new to me...(probably old news to a lot of people on this thread)...
