    I think RRL might be my favorite brand except for one big negative - all the repro stuff with all the stenciling and fake-old logos and text and whatnot. The last time I was in the Melrose store I really wanted a chambray shirt but the only shirts in stock had weird faux military stenciling all over them.

    That said, the vintage stuff in the stores is so great. Cool stuff and tastefully edited. I still regret not buying a perfect suede jacket I saw at the old RRL store that used to be on Beverly (or was it 3rd?)

    Yup!, Kanye gave Carl the denim guy at American Rag a pair of RRL boot-cuts to knock off for a few custom pairs.
    you can see the custom jeans Karl made for Kanye on his blog. He's a super chill dude. http://rogueterritory.blogspot.com/

    IMO they fit like J Crew, a small from both brands feels like a Euro/JP Medium.

    I think RRL's shirts must come in a variety of cuts. The ones that I own (including one that is not marked slim-fit) are MUCH slimmer than anything at J Crew.

    +1, though all the RRL shirts I've tried are a bit tight in the bicep area... I think the armholes are cut a little high.

    Shirts or t-shirts?

    The tees are sized true and I'd say the same for the shirts I own from current seasons. The western-cut stuff may fit a tad loose in the top but taper like no other.

    The tees fit about the same as the button ups in the shoulders and chest, but are cut quite short (a large fits about like an AA, but shorter).

    Question - all the stuff I've seen at the outlets has a care tag that says something along the lines of "Polo Retail Europe." Is this stuff made for the European market?

    these guys have the best selection of worn/broken in leather jackets. the horsehide buca ones are pretty phenomenal.
