    Yeah, I saw that too. Thankfully, I have just concluded that I am done with x-zips for the forseeable future...

    Seems like lots of costumers source from RRL. I saw this really cool shirt jacket from His Dark Materials only to find out it was RRL and, of course, insanely expensive.

    RRL is low hanging fruit for Wardrobe Stylists. They have really active Studio Services and Product Placement teams from my understanding, and flagship stores in LA, ATL and NY. Also, their stuff is period good enough even if not period-correct—especially if it’s only for a few minutes on-screen. Then, with the association, more folks recognize and want the styles. I love when I hear stories of Costume designers reaching out to smaller makers for signature wardrobe pieces. Mike Hodis (Runabout Goods) made the jacket for Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born, as well as some pieces for Jupiter’s Legacy.

    I have the impression that the popularity of RRL has been decreasing a bit over the last couple years compared to before… like less talked about online but also smaller collections with less stand out pieces over the past few seasons.

    I hope it won’t end up like Levi’s Vintage Clothing which is just an empty shell of its former self.

    I’d heard pre-pandemic that since it wasn’t as profitable as the other lines, the parent company wasn’t giving it as much (a lot less) budget. They were only keeping it going as a pet project for Ralph. They were banking on the workwear trend being played out.

    I second this. RRL never was a money maker for Ralph Lauren. Production costs are high and volumes are relatively low (as compared to the Polo brandline for example). The company hasn't been doing too well the last couple of years so they had to close down stores (source) and cut costs. One way to cut costs is by investing less in your loss-making brandline (RRL).

    That kind of confirms my perception then.

    While the workwear trend is definitely past its peak the western/cowboy theme is still somewhat “in” and that is an area where RRL (used to) put out interesting pieces. Oh well… plenty of choice elsewhere too.

    Cmon Ton I’m supposed to be using my Langlitz queue spot for a vest. Something simple I’ll wear a lot in my climate. Why you gotta do this to me?
