    I picked these up during the last sale. Color is dark and saturated, but not much bleeding. Although I did get some indigo bleed on my filson bag from rubbing against them. Fabric is really nice though, they have a great feel and aren't super heavy. Very similar to the dark SK's I have from Rogue Territory. Fade potential is good, already getting some on my back pocket and sides - look at some fade picks for dark SK's and ST-120 shadow selvedge from 3sixteen to give you an idea.

    Yes, true to size while appropriately poncho. If you wanted a very slouchy fit, go up one.

    "One small left in the company" implies that it's worldwide.

    Agree, though I would normally never wear a hoodie. it's completely Jeff Spicoli.

    Got the Desert Patrol- Knit Cotton Overshirt and what a surprise... It's dark olive in person, nothing to do with the faded khaki shown in the web store (see pic). The color slightly change depending on the light but still dark olive. I would say that the photo in the website isn't accurate at all.
    It fits short and boxy. The material is super soft and comfortable, mid-light weight.
    RRL images don't match the real color at all.

    Tried to take reliable pics but the result is still unreliable. The light and device turn color in a weird way. The olive doesn't properly come out (in the second pic cargo paints are dark olive while they look almost grey...). I can accept it taking pictures with my phone in front of a mirror in my bathroom, not from a brand like RRL. The last pic in detail is the most real.

    Sorry for the phone in foreground...

    Fit on that shirt jacket looks really odd to me, beyond boxy..

    I wanted to share some photos of the Roughout-Suede Jacket my RL rep was kind enough to send me for consideration.

    As someone mentioned last week, the jacket is thin with leather that feels stiff and brittle. As is usually the case, the actual color of the jacket is nowhere near what's depicted on the website. It's definitely a tan, not the brown shown online.

    It certainly appears RL wanted to make a lighter version of the Davis Rough Suede Jacket from a few years back—something I was keenly interested in. Some of the details are similar to the Davis and the distressing is pretty well done. It's a nice jacket; just not what I was hoping it would be. I also thought the $1900.00 price tag seemed unusually steep.

    Second picture, just looks like a really stiff, boxy fit.. You can almost trace a straight line from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the coat.. Might be the large pockets on the chest, but yeah, fit just does not look good at all..

    That shirt is real nice, though. And thank you for sharing.
