Can someone tell me where I can buy RLBL? I don't think I have seen it anywhere besides online.

Browse thru Polo.com to see what you like. Then call a Polo store that is NOT in your state to order the item(s), that way, you will pay $15 shipping but no tax. BTW, the stores carry items that are not available online.

5 Bloomingdales (NY 59th, Boston, Chicago, Chevy Chase and SF) along with some Saks also carry the RL Black Label.

NM in Beverly Hills does not carry the line but I am not sure about other NMs. BG might also carry the line on the first floor.

Pssst....also monitor B&S here. Many new BL items come up from some great sellers / members, so once you know what you want, and have the BL sizing down, you can make out better than george michael in a park outhouse.

Are you sure about this? I was at both the Boston and the San Francisco Bloomingdales this past week, and I never saw RL Black Label at either location.

Yes I am sure about the 5 Bloomingdales! The NY Black Label shop was build very recently and you will not find it in the Polo section. These two labels are treated very differently at the Bloomingdales.

I am looking at a Bloomingdale's receipt, the description for my Black Label purchase is labeled "Mens Eur Des", the one for Polo is just "Mens Polo".

BL San Francisco has a tiny Black Label shop by the suit section, no where near where Polo Ralph Lauren is. That might be the reason you missed it. I am guessing the same with the Boston store. I've called the polo shops at these stores and some of their associates don't even know they have Black Labels in their stores.

The RL store in the Houston Galleria has a good selection of BL suits and shirts, but I didn't look for the outerwear.

The Bloomingdale's in Boston (actually Chestnut Hill) definitely carries Black Label. also, I think BG carries it on the second floor, across from the Thom Browne section.
