    I'm such a dumba$$. Was looking for cords in the jeans section. Thanks! :)

    Second question - how do the cords generally fit, relative to slim fit boot cut jeans or low straight jeans?

    Anyone with experience (cords)?

    My slim boot cuts are at least 1 inch larger in the waist and also 1inch longer in the inseam than printed on the label. They are sort of narrow in the thigh, but I didn't have any problems. I guess if you have larger thighs you may want to look for the cords in "slim fit." There was a seller last summer on ebay selling them for 39 dollars, it was under 50 shipped.

    Very tempting... must resist. Have 3 packages coming already. Have 4 kids...

    We'll see. I'm trying to wait until Christmas gifts for any more buying, but this is something I'll get, one way or the other. How heavy/durable is it, both the knit and the fleece?

    Heads up for those in Sydney: RRL pictures on the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald today (largest selling newspaper) in a half-page story on how Ralph Lauren used old Sydney police criminal/gangster photos for inspiration for its latest "heritage label RRL" campaign!

    Here's the online version:

    Ironic because RRL is not sold anywhere in Australia.

    will the RRL wool peacoat be on sale on Dec 6? I'm in for one, if so. I've missed all these past sales ...

    is there a discount code for this upcoming 40% off?

    I really wish the peacoat will be on sale....however, there's a good chance that the corduroy jacket will go on sale, which is even more bombshell IMO.

    what do you guys think of the RRL grey chambray from the sale? i got it for 99 but not sure if its worth the price. the fit is decent and the material seems alittle nicer than j crew chambrays but not mindblowing... am I right?

    second did anyone get the RL weekend bag from the sale? I got it and its fuckin nice but so huge i dont know when i would ever use it. If i went on a trip that needed that many clothes I suppose i would just take a piece of luggage instead or a technical backpack.

    i ended up with all three chambrays during that sale. the fit is better than my eg chambrays BUT eg's fabric and thickness is def better. these also look a bit "dressier" which works well for me during this f/w season for busi/cas envir
