    anyone own one? Got a chance to get some good deals on a few. I know the quality is good, I am more concerned with the cut. I need to know how severe it is; ie, slim Italian cuts don't work b/c of my slight spare tire. Regular Polo and other American made dress shirts however are always big on me. If it falls towards the latter or inbetween that's fine, just trying to make sure the cut isn't too severe. (unfortunately I can't try one on first)

    Actually the RLP dress shirts are rather slim cut. You might try Lorenzini, they are a bit roomier.

    Rather slim, in my experience, although not so much as French and (some) Italian shirts. Try Armani (always looser than most designer brands) or better American makers like Seize sur Vingt, which also has a reasonable MTM program, as far as I remember. If you were willing to shell out the cash for RLPL, you'll find their (SsV) prices quite reasonable, and get a customized fit, at that. I'll also second the suggestion on Lorenzini.
