I really like how they are logoless (right?) I believe you can't even go logoless with RL's make your own custom fit, lol

The fabric also isn't as thick/stiff, the buttons aren't MOP and the pocket is smaller. They're a good BoO alternative if you are willing to pay to get them shortened an inch and a half though. I might pick up one during the F&F Sale.

They have either a tag with "Rugby" on the left gusseted side seam or a small skull & bone on the left lower tail edge, or an extremely large Rugby crest on the pocket. The ones on the site have the tag.

its pretty hard to notice. you could probably remove it if you get the shirts shortened. they also have a back collar button, BoO doesn't.

Some BoO's do have the button on the back of the collar. I had one that did but I gave it to a friend of mine.

The ones currently on the website have a small tag, not unlike J. Crew, on the leff gusseted side seam. It's removeable, and hardly even noticeable. A size small fits very similar to a BoO medium with, as mentioned, smaller collar.
