I only have 3, but they're fucking
you own three purple labels
mine are mostly black, gray, and white
I wear only Polo, but decided to start stepping up to Purple Label
u need to diversify
another awesome thread
RLPL is nice and all, but one should not build a wardrobe around one brand. besides, there is muuuuuch nicer than RLPL. this thread is just a bad attempt at a bragging thread.
I want to find something else to wear but it has to be nicer
Zegna? Armani? Basitan? Hamilton? just to name a few.
Great stuff. Been wearing that for years.
zegna is badass.
me gusta tim hamilton
no me gusta google image searching "tim hamilton" with moderate search off
Yup, some of his stuff is pretty nice in a crazy conservative hipster way. His clothing plays nice with a lot of other designers.
God, i actually hate that i know this. Damn NYC!!
roberto fedachini belinihini is the only way to go
HOLY SHIT YOU WEAR PURPLE LABEL?!?!?
ARE YOU RICH LOL
NEVER MIND YOU ONLY HAVE 3
YOU MUST BE POOR
pre-line for bergdorf goodman
i didn't even get paid for this shoot and it was in the middle of the busiest day of fashion week. he did give me a cashmere sweater though.. which i ended up seeing at saks for 900 dollars so i guess it's chill
its like RL meets John Varvatos
My Tim Hamilton chambray is my new favorite shirt
I used to be an RL PL junky (10 shirts, 15 ties, shoes, etc.), but then I realized there are other shirts out there that are much nicer. I believe PL is only super 120s TC, and for the $350 or so you'll pay for a shirt, there are much nicer options available. Sure, lots of people will suggest Zegna, Armani (ugh), and some of the lower-tier Italians, but if you can stretch out your budget, Charvet offers some REALLY nice shirts. I've recently gotten into their stuff and really like the fit and fabric quality. I believe their white labeled shirts (normal line) are super 150s (could be 160s) and run around $450. There are of course others, such as Fray (my current favorite), but those are priced much higher.
For the money though, the best bang for your buck shirt, in my opinion, is Bergdorf's line. Their shirts fit and feel EXCELLENT and are pretty cheap at $250ish.
While I don't think RL PL is the best, their styling is VERY high up there. Their collars are some of my favorites (firmness, structure, spread, etc.), but the fit leaves a lot to be desired (parachute style) - extensive tailoring is needed for someone who's actually in shape.
upgrade you upgradeee you
switch your necktie to purple laaaabel
what the fuck is up with fits... to me, how well it fits makes the clothing.. every time i walk into a store i see a shirt, button up, jacket, whatever, and it looks bomb as hell... then i walk around the mannequin and naturally it's got the holy hell pinned and clamped out of it. i could probably fit two normal-build people inside most size medium shirts
