    I don't mark anything as 'vintage' if it is not vintage.... the vintage pieces are with the original/early RRL label... that was used from 93-98... I am not the one with the 'attitude' problem.. that would be people asking like you did "Is theRRshop the overpriced ebay seller?" Without knowing what issues one have to deal with when buying VINTAGE RRL from RRL collectors... no they do not give the pieces away.......

    One would have thought this forum would have many interested in RRL... not just trying to sell in most everypost... "PRICE DROP" "BUY NOW" ... wow one would think this forum was full of spammers.... but I come to find this group turns ugly towards one another for reasons of jealousy or they want to sell their RL Outlet pieces... that are from the bottom of the barrel... odd sizes... Smalls .. etc. their are few here that post about the real RRL style and the lifestyle that comes with it.

    Anyways, many times I take a loss on many of my items, because sometimes I feel bad about the high price of a Vintage RRL piece.... but lucky me, I am one that doesn't have to look at my bottom line.... so I just do what I enjoy doing, Buying, photographing and offering vintage RRL....
    eBay is really the only safe place to do it...

    I care for my clients, ... it's forums like this that put a bunch of young guys trying to out-do the other/wiser RRL dealers/collectors... with their attacks... and BS.

    I don't make fun of anybody here.... they usually attack me for their own reasons...
    maybe they are stuck in "JCrew Land... and not really ready for RRL land....

    PS you don't find RRL vintage at Polo Outlets......



    HAHA I guess if you keep telling yourself something is special, you really start to believe it. J Crew Land... RRL Land.... pleaseeeeeee, pretty much all made in China.


    I don't have a problem with you doing whatever it is you do, buying/selling/collecting etc, but stop putting it up on a pedestal, there are 1000's of RRL items on ebay; really not that rare. Sure there are limited pieces and items nicer than others, and yes vintage items, but you really come off as a dick for attacking everybody.

    You also won't find holes in clothing at Polo Outlets like the old shirt you once sold to me...

    This is getting like the scene in Woody Allen's Annie Hall where he's listening to a guy going on and on about Marshall McLuhan and Woody asks McLuhan himself who says "You obviously don't know anything about me!" Were's Ralph Lauren when we need him!!! These are clothes that we wear to keep us from walking around naked and maybe just maybe, they'll also boost our egos a bit.

    I wear this shit because I like, don't care if its collectible, rare, hard to get, not hard to get, expensive, cheap, made in China, made in brazil, made in Afganistan, the US or whatever.

    I know I'm going to regret inserting myself into this shit show, but now I need to know: what is the RRL lifestyle?

    Is it watching black and whites on TCM with the sound off so that you can try to identify articles of clothing RRL may have reproduced? It is building model trains and masturbating to their operation? Is it pretending to be a miner while riding the train between Manhattan and Westchester? I need to to know: what is this lifestyle built around a clothesline that is designed to be little more than a simulacrum of vintage articles of clothing?

    I mean, I'm a fan of RRL (not so much as lots of other lines that are more inspired, but still), what am I missing out on?
