No. It's called Double RL. It's RL's rugged country styled clothing, which I have no experience with in person, but is of a very high quality, from what I've seen on here and elsewhere online.
Macy's and other similar dept. stores' RL is mostly the most mainstream RL imaginable. Pony sweaters and polos and the largest fitting button downs and trousers. Not all is bad, but most isn't great. They also sell Polo RL jeans, but they should not be confused with PRL as they're almost a separate entity, made to fit the place that Polo Jeans Co. (now discountinued) fit.
That said, if you go to a RL store, you will find the usual Polo sweaters and polos, but you'll also find Polo sport coats, suits and trousers which are usually of a much higher quality than the average buyer is used to seeing at dept. stores. They're also more expensive than dept. store prices, rightfully so.
