No, hoit is right. They are vintage pieces.
I have the upper right plaid rayon blue one, but I unstitched the pockets and flaps.
If they look awful, it's for several reasons.
1. Not everything RRL made/makes looks good
2. The shirts don't photo very well. The colors are much more subdued and deep in person
3. Blame it on the mid-90's aesthetic. They are very bowler/workwear/grunge inspired
Now, personally I love the one I have. I bought it because it is 100% rayon and sometimes like that material very much in a shirt. The caveat being that I only wear it more as a shirt-jac, layered over something. Some considerations: these shirts are thick-ish, even the rayon ones, the chest sizing is huge, the length very short, as are the sleeves. Very strange fitting, but can be pulled off nicely in certain ways.
