    It's not a "slim" RRL ..its on the looser slide for RRL ...(but with all RRL it's still trim for a shirt). As mentioned, I got the sense it was meant to be worn untucked with some shorts on a summer day...it definitely looked good that way on the one hot day we had in SF this past weekend (may be the only day this summer I'll be able to wear it here :) )

    Does it say "dry clean only" on the tag?

    I usually wear size small but "slim" RRL fits too tight for my chest so I need to upsize to medium followed by a trip to the tailor (I'm 5'7" and medium usually runs long on me). Is it safe to order this linen shirt in small since you said it's a looser fit?

    Is the picture on the RL site an accurate representation of what the actual shirt looks like in person?

    Hmmm I'm an RRL medium and it fits me very well, while the slim shirts are usually pretty fitted/snug... it's definitely not snug like the "slim" labeled shirts...

    Its actually pretty true to the color on-line ...here's a pic I took from this weekend that I posted to IG (with the Wilberforces, rigid navy chinos, and leather belt ...but IMHO it actually looks better with shorts, not rigid chinos :) ):

    I was up early for that one. Waited that motherfather out the whole dang season. Will post pictures. And then it goes into the sweater vault until December or I move to Australia.

    I don't mean to be off topic, but I've started a bit of a search for three shirts that I foolishly sold when I was consolidating my collection that I now realise I actually really liked.

    The irony is that at the time of the sales, about three to six months ago, these shirts were all over Ebay, it seemed, and now they're like hens' teeth.

    Has anyone come across the Railroad Jaspe Schneider, Jackrabbit Antique Print or Black Striped Bulldog Shirts lately?

    This is the Jackrabbit Antique Print Shirt:

    RRL newbie, picked up an indigo work shirt from Cedar and Hyde a while ago. I've never had a shirt like this before. Do you guys recommend washing before wearing to prevent indigo stains?

    Not only that, but I'd recommend washing it separately as long as you have it. I've made the mistake of washing RRL Indigo Shirts that I've had for nearly three years with white singlets, and the blue still bled and stained them. You can only really wash them with others of the same type.
