I noticed the same things. In addition to your points, I found the cotton has a sheen to it and it's cooler to the touch. It did take sometime for me to get used to the wide neck (and the vintage T-shape bunches the fabric around the armholes), but the following pictures of Brando convinced me :D. I do wish the RRL T-shirts have shorter sleeves however.
Why not have them tailored exactly to your preferences. What is too long, can always be shortened.

Looks like poly-blend, unfortunately. Never owned any of their logo tees -- have some been poly-blends or is this a new development?
Interesting, I own a handful of graphic/solid color tees from past seasons all of which are cotton jersey (100 percent cotton) looks like a new development. 🤔
Just re-read these 2 posts, and I went and check the few RRL T-shirts I own (bought not too long ago). The solid tees were all 100% cotton. The logo tees were 80/20 cotton/polyester. It looks like the one posted above is 60/40 cotton/polyester so the polyester percentage has doubled!

Hey guys, I've been lurking around here for a while and finally took the plunge on the brushed flannel shirt that was on sale and holy fuck it exceeds expectations, I think I'm hooked.

Got my eyes on some of the denim shirts next. It doesn't look like searching for Icon or Core works anymore, is it safe to assume the Indigo Buffalo Western Shirt and waffle knit henleys will be restocked?

Gotta start saving for one of those cardigans too...

This shirt?
No idea on a restock but the chances of them offering something virtually the same sooner or later is about 100%.

That's the one - thanks for the heads up. Think it's still in stock in my size over at Stag Provisions but ends up costing more when you take shipping etc into consideration so didn't know if it would be worth waiting for RRL to get them back in, thanks for getting back to me

Funny - pre-internet shopping there were miles of vintage blue pearl snap western shirts in thrift store bins across Texas - it was practically part of the uniform for 70s good old boys in cowboy hats around here. Times have changed.

very rare I see a blue denim shirt with all the right details (Pearl snaps, western yokes, three button cuffs etc etc) these days. Exceptions being RRL/YSL/various expensive heritage brands, maybe wrangler at a push but the fit never seems right there

Yeah, I rarely see them in recent years - I just wonder what happened to all of them I used to see. Sitting in someone's curated vintage thrift collection somewhere now I guess.

It is very slim to start with

Also I am struggling with this arrow thing at the bottom which is pretty high and hard to tuck into the pant, maybe someone can explain the meaning of it and why maybe it has to be out of the pant ? :)

This is a core shirt and is restocked every season. In denim in comes in two washes - Rinse and something called Dark Wash, which is worn down and aged slightly. It is also available in a light weight chambray again - which they had stopped for a few seasons. Restock should start happening now or very soon - officially new core starts dropping from Mid June with concepts from July.
