REALLY GOOD DOUBLE RL FAKE? LEATHER MILITARY BAG VIA EBAY

WAS TOLD TO POST THIS HERE!

Okay, so I'm now seeing group members inquiries with the eBay seller 0livewh0.

It seems members are split down the middle of this seller being legit or fake.

Can someone please confirm if this R.R.L. leather bag is real? If not, then I need to get my money back asap! :(

99% fake, ive never seen this before (granted not saying much) but it's extremely safe to assume if the man is selling a majority of fake products, that this should be considered as fake. I don't see why anyone would bother buying from this seller even if there's a remote chance it's a legit item

that seller I believe either purchases or is affiliated with a company that sells knock off RRl or other similar brands from China. He’s been flagged on this thread I believe. If you ask him if the items are 100% legit,the seller will never respond back. Tell tale sign that the item is not legit. If a seller acknowledges an item is legit and is not the case, you’ll get your money back. I’ve noticed sellers with counterfeit will avoid that question.

I've been looking for a Rockport duffle for years - RRL stopped making them several years ago. Magically he now has a seemingly unlimited number of "new" ones to sell, one at a time. After carefully looking at the ones he is selling versus images of real ones, I can see slight differences that indicate to me that they're fake. I asked him for a photo of the inside of the bag, and he never responded.

I've never seen anything like that bag you purchased and requested your money back for. Not that I've seen everything, but I've been a fan of the brand for many years. I wouldn't purchase anything from him.

Thank you. I'm in the process of having eBay and my banking institution recoup my funds. Now the real question is, where can I buy a RRL backpack? Like websites, please!

Anyone else have this IRL? The pattern here differs from the one in the official picture so I'm curious to see what other IRL items look like.
Saw this on the facebook group. Hope it is ok I post it here...

So totally random pattern ;)

Something I've noticed....am I alone in thinking that the RRL denim washes over the past few years have taken a drop in quality? It may be an intentional shift away from the 'highly distressed' look, but in looking through my older denim as well as older offerings it looked like there was much more in terms of interesting distressed washes. There is a certain depth, detail and contrast that appears missing from many of the ones I've seen recently.

Totally agree, the slim narrow destroyed in black from a couple years ago, were the last pair that really caught my eye . I’m not a fan of the paint splatter jeans, I could achieve that wash by wearing a pair of jeans to work for a week 😅

thank you for these - what an enjoyable visit.

2014 / 2015 were the golden age of RRL, it seems. Since then, we have definitely seen the decline of a once galant brand.

And this cardigan... 🔥🔥🔥

2014 was a great year...I wanted the trifecta of the chambray work shirts...have New Haven (my favorite) and Tacoma. Still looking for Seattle shirt. It was sold out everywhere that year.

Unfortunately I joined RRL party a bit too late, if only I could have in 2014 and 2015 I would have bought almost everything....!
