I'm not a designer type shopper normally, but I discovered RL's t shirts at a designer outlet place a few years ago and was converted. They are made of lovely heavy weight cotton, keep their shape, don't fade and look as good now as when I bought them five years ago. By comparison, my M&S ones have shrunk like mad and look very faded and tired.

It seems to be the favoured supplier for teenage boys round here hmm

I find the logo a bit cringe.

But the quality is nice, I have silkshirt dress from there which is gorgeous.

They do the classics well. If you like the preppy style.

Their cotton jumpers are gorgeously soft, and the outlets sell them for £40. I think the full rrp is something ridiculous like £200.

I always buy my DS (currently 8 so I'm aware this is highly pretentious) one or two RL polos when we go to the U.S. Outlets (usually annually), as they last him 2-3 years, keep their shape and colour, wash perfectly and look so smart. Nothing else I've bought him has ever looked so good for so long.

I have a dress, classic design and v good fit. Nothing daring about it but it's easy to wear (and wash!).

I like their flat ballet shoes /pumps. Support my feet but look great . Wide range of colours , the unusual ones are often a really good price .

Everything washes well and lasts for years.

They wash really well. I was very pleased to find loads of trouser, t-shirts and shirts in tk maxx yesterday for DS. £10-15 each!

This sounds like the York Designer outlet and no I can't understand it either!

I buy Ralph Lauren at the USA outlets. I've had t-shirts, a cotton cardigan, and about six of the cotton cable sweaters. Some of these are 5-10 years old now, and still almost like new, and they have been worn often,so well worth the money.
