    I would say they are a good mid-range Italian maker. No Borrelli or Kiton handwork and the finishing and details are not as nice as Lorenzini, Barba, Truzzi, Finamore... but definitely miles ahead of all the designer/dept. store brands like Ike Behar et al. The fabrics are nice and the fit is decent (not too baggy). The only thing is they make shirts in very colorful patterns and are better known for sports/casual shirts than classic dress shirts. I don't think I've ever seen a conservative blue or white shirt from them. Full retail is $200-$250 and I think they are a good value at ~$75.

    Pristine.

    I cringe when I see people putting NWT clothes directly on the floor to take a photo but that shirt hasn't even escaped the box yet.

    Does anyone know who makes the shirts for RLPL? How is the quality compared to say Lorenzini?

    Identical, as they are now made by Lorenzini (formerly by Turnbull & Asser, but no longer).

    I'm not so sure about the Keaton, it's a bit extreme. I've got one, a contrast collar on a dark royal blue body, and the collar is a bit effeminate.

    I agree -- it's a bit extreme (for me, at any rate...); guess that's why I wear the few Keatons that I have so rarely -- at most once a month. Nice to have for variety, though....

    It probably doesn't help that it's a very contrasting collar.

    On a white shirt, I could see trying one though I don't know how much I'd end up liking it.

    The problem for me is how ostentatious it looks - I don't think it look particularly effeminate.

    Yeah, I see chicks in extreme spread collars all the time.

    Since everyone's posting Keatons, here is mine. It's obviously not CBD or an everyday shirt imo - especially w/a contrasting collar - but when you want to make a statement once in a while, it's great with a DB suit.
