I'm surprised that no one has presented some history of these talasim yet.

So far, all I found out is that the Rashab tallis is larger, more expensive, has a different stripe pattern, but still follows the AR.

On another blog I read from someone who may/may not be reliable, that the FR was in Israel and purchased a tallis there with a pattern that he liked, and that became the new style. The same writer said that the Rebbe's father had a tallis with white stripes, and offered that the Rebbe rolled his talis in such a way to hide the black stripes as sort of a compromise between the FR and his father.

Can anyone either verify or debunk the above story?
