    what's your true waist? I am true 30, and got 30x30 the first time around, and that was waaayyyyy too loose. Sold it and got 28x30 in the end (and the waist on these have stretch out as well, but not to the point it falls down). I think if you want low straight there are plenty of 28x30 on ebay and actually decent price.

    im convinced their is polo/rugby version of almost every RRL piece including the jackets I posted. In fact, right after I posted those links I did the same search with "POLO" and found similar looking jackets.

    im in love with the Green, Brown, and Blue sweaters. Ill wait a little longer with the hope they go down an additional 25%. Ive handled all three in person and they feel great to the touch. Linen has such a nice drape to it.

    I like the green one the most, except one part, chest pocket only on one side. They had all 3 on sale in London as well (though price wasn't as good as you guys have it over there). I will be in the US (NYC) around beginning of Sept., you think anything on sale would still be around?

    How's rugby's quality, my impression is its all over the chart. PRL's price is about the same as RRL at retail (tiny bit cheaper) for the same look, though PRL gets discounted more sometimes?

    They've also designed new tags that are really similar to the RRL tags. Seems like a conscious effort to offer "budget" RRL styles.

    Denim quality is excellent. I think their selvedge denim is on par with RRL. Other items are hit and miss, just like Polo. Also, their designs are targeted to a much younger audience than I am, so besides denim, there is basically nothing there I would wear.

    you mean rugby or polo? I have seen polo with similar tag, though don't know about rugby as I don't see them that often in UK. The jeans were cheaper in polo than RRL, but I thought everything else were not that much different (jacket/cardigan/sweater) for similar item.

    ime, RRL shirts generally tend to be 15-25% more expensive than POLO blue label. RRL jeans are 25-50% than POLO jeans
