    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Everything from last year was made by Julian (except for the brogue Bowerys). All the stuff from this year is being made in the UK, not sure by who.

    I am curious about that. The new boot pictures you posted a few pages back still show Made in the USA on the boxes. I know there was talk of using a UK company for this season, but is it possible that RRL is using a UK brand that is manufacturing in the USA? Or maybe the UK company fell through when RRL decided they still had an inventory of boxes to work through?

    I'm not sure the real story, but it would seem there is still some untangling yet to be done regarding these new boots.

    Are you only reselling, or do you do proxy?

    Nevermind. I can answer my own questions. Only the Bowery boots are made in the UK. All others are still made in the US, although I'm not sure if Julian is still making them. I suspect yes, but I don't know definitively yet.

    I was told by multiple SA's that all the boots this season are being bench made in the UK. Maybe they were wrong. Bowerys definately are for sure.

    I'll do proxy but I have no idea whats there if anything.

    Maybe you should buy all the RRL you can see and flog it to us :slayer:

    Footwear for SS 12 are the Brunel, Washington Work Boot, Congress Gator (How are these already showing up on eBay?), Powell, and Murdock Engineers. All of these are made in USA and sourced with either Nebraskan or Colordan leather.

    Bowery and Brogue Bowery are made in UK.

    Thanks for your willingness to proxy. We will only know what that means when you to get to Florida, but the generosity of your offer is appreciated ;)

    These are pretty nice but they're pretty slim/skinny in comparison. Any other good alternatives?

    I was in orlando last week. not a single RRL for men. some womens stuff and some rugby. There are a handful of ebay powersellers that gravitate towards those stores and clean them out everyday. There is no RRL being sent to outlets now anyway, try again in 2-3 weeks.

    Picked up a pair of once washed slim fits from the store in Georgetown today. They have a pretty decent amount of RRL. Definitely like the jeans a lot.

    Julian has been fired ... I'm told it was too many screw-ups and inconsistencies.

    Does anyone know about the sizing on the new Murdock engineers, do they also run kinda small like last years engineer boots?
