Just got in the jungle cloth deck jacket from this season. If anyone is on the fence...get it. It’s so worth it.

Agreed about the Corridor fabrics - really incredible. I've found the fit to be inconsistent, though. I'm typically a medium. Some of their medium shirts fit me perfectly; some are a bit relaxed; and others can be snug (like the light blue check shirt you posted - insane fabric but the fit was just a little off for me). Either way, still worth it for the ones that fit great and definitely recommend trying.i would focus on pit to pit and base your size of that. thats what i did and it worked out
Well, more palace intrigue at Ralph Lauren. Toshiro posted an image of the Limited Edition Workshirt back on September 26th. Take a good closer look by clicking ‘Toshio said’ above.I didn’t see this on the us site but I saw the most ugliest shirt I’ve ever seen in my life
to be fair, some of the patches do have sashiko stitching or what is meant to look like it at least. I do love the shirt and I think a white t shirt/turtleneck underneath with some black or brown denim would look great!Well, more palace intrigue at Ralph Lauren.

But here below is the same shirt on the RL website now.
Now that’s pretty weird. The actual Limited Edition ”boro” shirt now on the RLL website (and in stores) has added both a collar lapel and a right breast pocket. More Covid disruption? Exact same shirt .... but ..... more collars and pockets for your money. Whoops, now how the gosh-darn-dang-biggity did that happen? Come on Ralph, enough already, now heads must roll!
BTW , I see folks on the RRL Instagram account calling this workshirt “sashiko” but that’s wrong, it’s actually “boro”. Sashiko (also used as a verb, meaning “little stabs or stitch”) refers to the stitching repair work technique while boro (a noun, meaning “tattered or rag”) refers to the repeated layered patchwork technique. But there ain’t a whole lot of sashiko going on with this particular shirt.
I have also tried this shirt on and it’s pretty awesome in person but also agree with Toshiro that it’s probably not for everyone. Reminds me of a watered down version of something Kapital might offer (but not nearly the same quality as Kapital). The shirt could use more stressing to actually capture the proper Japanese aesthetic in my opinion.
