What does it mean when a wash number is preceded by an "R"?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I just received these in the mail from Yoox today:

 

http://yoox.com/us/42254642IS/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=42254642IS&sizeId=5

 

and the wash indicated on the tag is RC07. I've never seen them elsewhere and I seem to recall something about the R indicating it was old stock fabric that was reissued or something like that. Is this something Diesel made directly for outlet (vs. first line) retailers and sent directly to Yoox? Or does that designator mean something else entirely?

As far as I know they are made for Outlets.

From your knowledge/experience are they as well made as the first run stuff, or is it like the "factory store" goods for US brands (Banana Republic, Gap, J Crew, Hugo Boss, Polo, etc.) which tend to be significantly crappier?

I don't know I'm sorry.

I've only seen them in Outlets never in a Local Store.

If you have doubts about quality send them back.

As far as visual inspection/feel of the material, everything looks in order. That being said, I've had garments appearing to be of high quality that turned out not to be so I wanted to see if that was anyone's experience with this line.

I don't have experience with them but maybe someone else has this.
