Also OP, Barney's in Northpark Mall (Dallas, TX) carries RRL jeans. There is also an RL store inside the mall that carries a few RRL stuff.
I don't know, but why wouldn't they be making a profit? There are alot of people buying at full retail. The jackrabbit shirt and officer's chinos right here on SF through Blake are two cases in point. They've sold like hotcakes. Two items do not cover a brand, but still, that jackrabbit at $250 is made in China - there's some big profit in there that covers losses elswhere. They're jeans are definitely worth full retail, and notwithstanding the influx of jeans into factories, I bet they are selling quite a bit through stores before they get to the factories (we are not the privileged customers RRL looks for). And even stuff making their way into factories but made in China might still be making some profit.
The only thing I can see that would set RRL back would be cost of retail locations - those are some expensive locations I imagine.
