    Hi Gents,

    I got a pair of trousers a few months ago from RLPL (on 75% off sale) which retailed at $600. I did this as a bit of an experiment to see what I thought of the product. It is nice material - light grey flannel.

    But I havent seen the extra value there versus good stuff with lower price points like Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole and Black Fleece. Am I missing something, or does the RLPL command a price for the label?

    I also noted that RLPL suits run about $4800. At that price I would think you should get full bespoke.

    On a side note the store tailor didnt do a great job - which makes me wonder - are there good instore tailors at any of the mens' stores??

    What does the SF think?

    Thanks
