    If anybody needed a photoshop diet...it's those two models!! :rolleyes2:

    That's crazy, I still want to give them the benefit of the doubt with regard to poor catalog photos but it's getting harder and harder to do so.

    You are a trusting soul!

    The doctoring of product photos doesn't bother me as much as the over-the-top Photoshopping of models' bodies. Of course, Ralph Lauren is not the only fashion house that assaults our perceptions of women.

    I seem to recall someone here was looking for the Cotton Jungle Cloth Vest from the Spring collection. A NWT Medium has surfaced on eBay for $245.

    I must have missed some posts. What's the context for this item? Is it available in Japan only?

    Beams+ released some limited RRL jeans exclusive for Japan, one being the high waist tapered pictured on that instagram and the other being a straight tapered. both fits seem like they would do very well in the american market but alas. I actually had the chance to buy them off zenmarket but a retail of $400 for a pair of 12oz jeans didn't seem too smart

    Thanks for filling me in. The jeans have my interest but I wouldn't want to deal with returning this item if it didn't fit.

    Yes, we exchanged comments about this vest. When I got it I was surprised how stiff was but after wearing it I liked and appreciated that kind of material. Thank you anyway for your post, very kind of you!
    We also talk about Abrams vest that you own and I'm still looking for, waiting that miraculously surfaces somewhere...
