Ultimately it is still a small fraction of people who like the patinated faded look. Even if those people are abnormally represented as RRL clientele, I would think they are still a small number of those buying from the brand.

The reality is that RRL is a hobby branch of Ralph Lauren.
agreed. I’m actually working on the limited high rise 18oz jeans. Maybe I’ll post some progress pics of the fades if anyone is interested! In my opinion, these jeans are up to par with other brands I have a lot experience with such as Pure Blue, Fullcount and Burgus plus.

For an uninspired social media feed, look no further than the RRL Instagram account.

"Printed shorts. Click to buy."

My dudes, I don't understand how having absolutely nothing to say is 'on brand' for RRL.

There are so many interesting things this account could share. Here are a few ideas from an anonymous buyer - these might complement the rotation of posts ("photo of our shop" / "photo of our showroom" / "we're having a party, meh.")

1. A look inside Ben Lisi's closet with his top 5 pieces.
2. Let some of the shop guys pick favorite pieces and talk about why.
3. Take a photo of a sunset in Wyoming or fireflies on Long Island or something.
4. Personality.
5. Something something American historic heritage something.
6. "Why Ralph Lauren's brands will no longer appropriate Native American imagery" corporate social responsibility essay.
7. Blue is our favorite collar: a photographic essay
8. How we made ____: sharing more production process, exploration, experiments
9. Neat images from the past / stuff we bought at Brimfield / Doug Bilheimer's magazine basket in his bathroom
10. Jeez, I dunno, look at some other social media accounts and get inspired why dontcha.
100%.

Would love to see them post more original content. They have some really cool things going on behind the scenes and a huge reach that involves some really interesting cats. Would love to see some more experimenting.

Right now, I just get the gist the instagram account is done from the perspective of the anti-instagram-instagram.

Anyone have any idea what time the 60% off sale will start tomorrow (June 30th) ? Is it a midnight EST ordeal, or 8am, or what?

That shirt looks such a nice piece. The irl shots sometimes make the difference for me as I don’t live near a physical store and the website shows lots of pre production samples often either differ or don’t reflect the colours well in the finished piece.

Anyone have Images from the FW 20 catalogue?

Either that or they realize that most people who can afford RRL don't have IG.

In the past it’s been whenever some web lackey remembered to click deploy. Seen things go live as early as 9pm pacific the night before (so midnight eastern) to as late as 6am pacific.

While much could be said,
the brand speaks for itself.
