    Visvim, EG and Kapital really aren't comparable to RRL in terms of aesthetics and styling. I'd argue they're just (much) nicer versions of the Denim and Suppy look (especially Visvim). I do like a lot of Kapital's stuff, though.

    The thing is, I don't think most of the guys in this thread are interested in looking exceptionally fashion forward, myself included. RRL by it's nature is vintage-focused and generally nice but understated, which is the style you get when you wear it. Not everybody on the forum wants to look like a glam rock star coming off tour sporting a Saint Laurent leather snakeskin jacket and black skinny ripped jeans. It's cool as hell in the right situation but it's overkill for a lot of daily life.

    I do agree that the value of RRL is totally out of sync for what it is, though. The denim prices in particular are getting a little ridiculous.

    ahhhh...didn't know this...I thought they were the same...all this time, I was calling it chambray ... thanks...not sure if I'll go through the trouble to correct people (in my everyday life) who like "my chambray shirt" but it's good to know...

    (probably tmi), but I was looking for a shirt/outfit like Neal Cassady in this pic...and that denim shirt, new black on black jeans, and a black belt I have from tanner goods comes pretty close...

    Are you talking about the Aaron workshirt from SS 2015? I have it and it is a great piece. It did make it to sale but sold out quickly after that:

    Oh.. if you want a great slim, non-workshirt chambray shirt, I got this one as well...it's great for everyday/work....it comes with color stays (you can wear it with a tie/sport coat ), doesn't have any pockets on the front: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=68419446&kw=68419446&sr=1&origkw=68419446

    I posted a picture of me wearing it about a month ago with some RRL white pants and Indigo Sport Coat...

    anyway...just another idea....

    I see them being worn more lately by Japanese workwear guys on IG, although they are not RRL but usually Freewheelers or Blacksign.

    That's the one. I hope they come out with a similar one again. Love the metal buttons.

    Didn't have much luck with the spring sale. Ordered about eight things, kept two.

    This wasn't on my radar until my SA suggested it. Sleeper hit:

    [​IMG]

    Plaid Cotton Dobby Shirt- http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=85545576

    Had this on my wish list for a while. Solid sweatshirt- good fit and extremely soft.

    [​IMG]

    Ye olde "Fleece Graphic Sweatshirt"- http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=84546726

    Have higher hopes for the summer stuff. I took a flyer on these and like them. Great material with some variation/striping not seen in the picture:

    [​IMG]

    Regiment Indigo Cargo Short- http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=90497166

    Size down on those. I got a 30 and then ordered a 29 to compare. I usually have to order a 31 to get my butt accommodated and then tailor. These shorts do seem to have a relaxed fit as advertised so I can go for a true waist.

    ^ I have the Indigo Regiment Cargo Short and love them. I went TTS and they fit great. Being that they are relaxed fit, there is a little more room in the seat than I'd like. Maybe they will shrink down a little or maybe tailor...?

    Thanks, I missed that one too. I think I did a search for "popover" and it didn't show in the results.
    Just ordered.

    Hope you like it. It reads a lot greener in person- less blue.

    Has anyone noticed the numerous trousers listed as black and white or grey pinstripe that all look brown. Do they all look brown in person as well? I have a pair of grey striped trousers from RRL and they're my favorite pants but they have a lot of patches and wear. Looking to pick up some similar ones. Never liked brown pants for some reason. Probably because it makes me feel like a Newsy.

    Disappointed to see Ralph have suddenly closed their Australia/NZ online store.

    I have these and they are brown in person, actually looking a bit green in the right light. Here's a photo of my pair.
