The one piece tube tees are really soft and fit comfortably. Also the length is perfect for that untucked look with jeans or shorts.

t-shirts are probably the only type of RRL clothing i dont own.

Same here although I do own 3 polo shirts. They are awesome - really lightweight and soft.

There are so many of these shitty looking patchwork shirts on eBay at the moment I'm almost led to believe that they were made specifically for outlets??? Not only do they look awful but the delusional sellers seem to think they'll get $300+ for them???

Speaking of RRL at outlets haven't found anything since 2 friday's ago. Went yesterday and they turned the 2 PSR racks into clearance racks, filled with dozens of Polo tweed jackets.

Found an amazing beige RRL Jacket earlier in the year. Thrifted it for $7.99. Sure enough, I wore it once and just....never wore it again. I saw they sold well so I listed it on ebay. Worst. Mistake. Ever.

Not even the japanese went for these, those shirts didn't sell at all and it's not surprising, just a bad attempt at simulating boro style repair.

Looks like Context may have received some more officer chinos... although they still have no viewable RRL on the website?!

As el dude mentioned Boro textiles are huge in Japan.

Boro textiles were made in the late 19th and early 20th century by impoverished Japanese people from reused and recycled indigo-dyed, cotton rags. What we see in these examples are typical—patched and sewn, piece-by-piece, and handed down from generation-to-generation, where the tradition continued. These textiles are generational storybooks, lovingly repaired and patched with what fabric was available. Never intended to be viewed as a thing of beauty, these textiles today take on qualities of collage, objects of history, and objects with life and soul.

Ebay only has 64 patchwork shirts for sale. Where are all the older ones? They all sell eventually. It's that they flooded ebay right now because they're new arrivals from outlets but I'm sure within 3 months they will all be sold and people will come on here asking where they can still find them.
