    ^ not all RRL items are included. Tip: before attempting to hack the code, fill your cart full of regular rl items. This way you'll know for sure whether or not you are getting the right code. Entering a code for non-sale items is a futile effort however all you need to verify a code is a single qualifying item in your basket. Gl and may the force be with you

    I bought the Oilcloth Hunting Jacket several weeks ago (for 1/2 price as a friend works for RL). For that price it was a great purchase. The thing which attracted me to it in the first place was the cut which was much more modern that anything I've owned by Barbour (2 jackets - the Bedale and New Utility). While the Barbour's were great jackets, and the idea of being able to get repairs after 20+ years is appealing, the RRL is more stylish (in my opinion) and just generally a better jacket. I think what I'm trying to say is that, on first impressions the RRL might look a lot like a Barbour, but once you actually wear one and use it, there are some distinct differences.

    I'm a standard large (42" chest and 35-36" waist) and went for the large. Its a prefect fit.

    It's definitely a nice jacket. I assume it's not Harris Tweed for that price?

    It is incredibly similar to the Cabourn Cameraman which retails for a rather significant $1,795

    Theyre going to re release the original brown ones and a run of black in Jan. Julian boots can be got at Barneys, but not sure what they have there. Does anyone know if he does resoling on his old boots?

    Credited.

    Designer military garb designed to look exactly like "the real deal" makes no sense to me. The "real deal" can usually be had for <$10 and is usually made in the US

    +1 on the genuine watch caps, they're cheap and work well. Just make sure you get the wool version and not the acrylic.
