Noodles might turn that around and say that when he's in good shape, he'll wear the good stuff more often!
 Timeline on the Kelty website says they moved production from Glendale to Sun Valley in 1968, so one would imagine that's a pre-1968 pack. Info in this recent Ebay listing suggests it's 1963 or earlier. And that one fetched $150 via BIN. Seems worth the pickup. EDIT: The last post in this forum thread has a price list from that period, including all of the sizing info for the packs, so with a couple of measurements you should be able to figure out the size and model.
I've mostly done 10-day auctions and I don't have a store. It's always been an additional paid option, though ($0.25 or $.40, I think).
 Literally can not believe this has been ITT six hours without being quoted.

What I've learned from the Alden thread in these situations is that the correct answer is both!Seriously, though, I agree that they both can work for you.

 Polo by Corneliani can often be had for < $50 on Ebay, in some cases NWT (since you mentioned being creeped out by used pants). The best deals are on those listings that are simply marked as Polo, with no mention of Corneliani or Made in Italy. If you have patience, you can build a fairly decent wool trouser wardrobe paying $30 or less per pair. Unless you are a size 33 or 34 waist, in which case they suck and the fit is horrible and you'll never be satisfied, so don't...
 I bought (and sold) a pair of mismatched monks, one calf, one shell. Didn't read the listing carefully enough when I bought, and made sure that I was [I]very[/I] clear in my listing what they were, so as not to get a return. Didn't wear them much, no more them a couple of times--exactly zero people noticed. I got rid of them more because I didn't have a need for black monks rather than due to the mismatch.
