Does this include stuff thrown arounnd outside MC? Dunno if these get used enough to warrant inclusion:

ALD (Atelier La Durance... maybe not used enough to warrant)
AA (American Apparel)
BiG or BIG (Blue in Greene)
BoO or BOO (Band of Outsiders)
CYC (uh, CYC, parent company of W+H)
DDML (self explanatory)
LVC (Levis Vintage Clothing)
MjK (Michael J Krell)
SE (Self Edge)
Sufu (more often used than supertalk)
STF (shrink to fit)
TaT (Thick as Thieves)
TFS (the fashion spot)
W+H (Wings and Horns... I guess?)
WAYWT (WHat Are You Wearing Today)

I guess 5EP and 45RPM don't really count.

It should probably be RLKL for blacK label (like CMYK), but since RLP (Polo) is Blue Label, I wish people would stop saying RLBlueLabel.
