Not RRL but my SA pulled aside this purple label safari jacket for me for the sale. Does anyone have experience with it?

Yes, I have this jacket but in Army green. Mine is from fall 2016. At the time it was also offered in navy. Around 2020 or so, it was offered anew, but if I recall correctly only in navy.

This beige example is novel to me, as well as the addition of the hood. I think it looks better sans hood to be honest. I would hope that the hood is detachable.

Mine is light weigh, perfectly suitable for temperatures around 15-20 degrees celsius. The 2016 version was also advertised as being made of water repellent cotton, it lives up to that in practice.
The buttons are made of horn and the overall quality of the piece is great, mine still looks quite fresh after the 8 years I have owned it. Style wise, I find it consistent, well put together and I especially like the design of the chest pockets. Something you don't come across often. It furthermore fits true to size.

I remember RLPL used to do hidden hood field jacket (more tactical RLBL type, don't remember RLBL ever did a M65/field jacket/etc type with a hood though), I really I wish I have picked up on that

Thanks!

I agree the hood being detachable, or at least hideable, would be strongly preferred.

Edit - confirmed the hood detaches and it is also made of water repellent cotton. Going to be hard to pass up unless it doesn’t fit well.

The Buzz chinos should arrive next week. They are coming from Japan. I'll post on here after I receive them.
The Buzz chinos arrived and they are amazing. The quality and styling are superb. The fit is exactly what I was looking for. As soon as I tried them on, I thought I need to get another pair. 😆

Heel slippage in cowboy boots should be expected and is perfectly normal.

Edited to add: There is a wide world of cowboy boots out there. Unless you're a complete brand enthusiast/addict who wears RRL from your hat down to the socks, don't lock in on RRL cowboy boots. You can find much better value, more interesting materials, and a lot more style options in the wider marketplace.

Wide range of western wear. Ralph has a unique enough spin most of the time. While his boots are made by Rios, a respected name, come with leathers sourced from his ranch with interesting patterns. I have the bison and roughouts which I love! Consequently, the wool fedora I bought is nice but next time I’ll probably go Stetson and get a higher quality fur for the same or better price. That said, I cannot even begin to justify why I have as many RRL bandanas that I do. Just that I love em and think they’re special. I’ll pause before spending a buck fifty on a Henley but won’t bat an eye if it’s an interesting bandana lol.

I am not really into cowboy boots, but love RRLs take on those boots (only the Chelseas and the British-made "regular" boot). They are perfect to wear either formally or casually in a European city. What I mean is, they look unique enough, but not out of place. Are there other brands with that perfect balance?

Tempted to buy these, got a whole bunch of aloha shirts this would go nice with. Not sure how often I'd wear this though, it looks very bright :p
