    The pair I just got via Ralph sale are 10.5oz.
    The pair I bought about a little over a year ago from Context are 9.23oz.

    hi zippy, how do the 10.5oz compare with the 9.23oz? is there a marked quality difference? Do you prefer one over another? do they fit differently?

    I am considering also getting a pair of 10.5oz ones now...

    I bought these on the European site.
    http://www.ralphlauren.de/product/index.jsp?productId=8339041
    Both on the site and on the tag on the pants it says 11.5 oz. "Reproduction of 1940s British military officer model rendered in rigid 11.5 oz. left-hand selvedge twill developed exclusively for RRL."
    But in the pocket stamp it says 9.23oz.
    They clearly are the rigid twill ones. However, it seems they have an older version here in Europe.

    I also have a pair from about 3 years ago which are marked 11oz.
    To be honest, I didn't really notice that the 10.5oz ones I just got were different from the 9.23oz.
    All I've done with the new ones is to try them on to make sure they fit the same, which they do.
    They also fit the same as the old 11oz ones.

    I kinda prefer the 9.23oz over the 11oz because it's not so stiff but it's a very slight preference.

    That is one beautiful jacket, Prajna. For a much cheaper alternative there is the Orvis munitions:

    I like the RRL much better - the zip cuffs, padded shoulders, breast pockets, and hide.

    If I wasn't so enamored right now with a Himel Brothers Heron '29 for a leather jacket I might remotely consider the RRL.

    Hey Guys,
    If someone has asked this before, I apologize in advance... how do you order items from the RRL UK site if you live in USA?
    Thanks

    Sorry for the double post, but can anyone who has seen this cardigan in person comment on it's thickness? I can't stand thin merino wool sweaters.

    So I have a site visit tomorrow in Goshen, NY. Was thinking about passing through via Woodbury - is it worthwhile heading there on a Tuesday morning for RRL goods? Anyone have any experience with this?
