Totally appreciable concern but not it at all - I actually am an older user who couldn't reset their old acc password so here I am!
Thanks for the welcome and the detailed reply. It's exactly the kind of responses I was hoping to get when I posted the question. Hopefully even more users will reply with theirs.Greetings and welcome!
I thought this was a great question, one that deserved an answer from those of us dedicated to the Double RL brand!
When I started to ponder the question, I realized that I have two categories of RRL favorites.
1. High-utility, "go-to" items I wear more often than other RRL pieces
2. Objects of affection, RRL pieces I adore but wear less often (or sometimes hardly at all)
I own this exact jacket too. I didn't know that it's from 2016! It's one of my favorites, and I probably wear it more than any other RRL items. It has one of my favorite jacket fit: boxy (but very trim), short length (it reaches just at the belt buckle for me), and high-armhole (which doesn't make me look like batman).Type II Denim Jacket . I own quite a few denim jackets, but this is my favorite. I've always been drawn to the classic 50's look of the Type II—boxy, with two front pockets and pleats. The RRL version is cut from sturdy red-cast denim and mildly distressed. (It takes me way too long to break in a raw denim jacket.)
Nah, the more the merrier. I'll try to compose a list of some of my favorites items later...There are a couple of more pieces that made the cut but I think I'll stop here–this post is already magazine-length.
The pockets look interesting, and the long point collar really adds to the overall look. I wonder if the Roughout Suede Western Jacket is a newer, suede version.
Is there a lot of good RRL on eBay? It doesn’t seem like it.So how does everyone, especially these big eBay sellers, get their hands on so much RRL? Are there regular sales or clearance centers somewhere?
There is at least 3, maybe 4, that have hundreds of items. Some over a thousand. I'm having trouble believing they're holding all stock, though. There is one seller I've noticed who gets new inventory, then posts them for auctions, and if they don't sell never posts again (which I only noticed because I missed a couple of auctions and wanted to bid). The drop-ship, close-to-store and not-holding-stock theories work for some , but not all. I was more interested incase y'all are purchasing stuff not from RRL direct, thus I would be missing out on in-the-know discounting.Is there a lot of good RRL on eBay? It doesn’t seem like it.
EDIT: OK, as soon as I wrote that, I see the guy from the other thread linking to his hundred new RRL items. Weird. Who knows. Doesn’t seem like that’s the norm. If you look at completed listings, prices are down for the brand compared to what people were paying a few years ago.
You shouldn't encourage me!Thanks for the welcome and the detailed reply. It's exactly the kind of responses I was hoping to get when I posted the question. Hopefully even more users will reply with theirs.
