We've mentioned the plans for a Double RL on Melrose before, but we didn't know where it would be. Today, we noticed men at work at the site of a former auto repair shop at Melrose and Kilkea, next door to the Improv and just west of Fred Segal. They told us it's indeed going to be a Double RL store, slated to open at the beginning of November. This follows the new Ralph Lauren store on Robertson, which debuted last week.
