If anything, they made workshirts with the pen slots for Polo before RRL was even around. They've been putting out shirts with that detail for RL for a while. And as far as RRL goes, except for dress shirts or westerns, they all have some form of pen slot, either a separate divider w/ hole, or just a hole in the pocket flap.
It's not surprising to see them share designs across brands. A lot of times you will see Polo pieces which are almost the exact same as RRL, just with less details. Things like nautical jackets would have patches and stencils for RRL, and a little plainer for Polo.
