RRL by Ralph Lauren Jeans -This is a pair I bought brand new for myself several years ago, I removed the tags, but never washed or wore them. The jeans were too big for me at the time, and I figured I'd eventually grow into them, but I haven't and I'd rather sell them and buy a pair of RRLs that fit. -these are a straight legged, pair, the leg is wider than a typical RRL "slim" cut -they are a factory "one wash" model, so they shouldn't shrink much, I never washed them or...
I found this tuxedo a while back, it's from "Palm Beach", a brand I usually associate with junk, but it's much older than any other Palm Beach stuff I've seen and it appears to be better made and better preserved. Vintage tuxedo in what to my eye looks like a very very dark, midnight blue, appears black except under daylight. I believe it's fully canvased in a nice material with a hint of texture to it. Shawl collar, oddly with subtly pleated trousers tagged a size...
BB Madras Sack I thrifted this years ago, one of my first great finds. It's about a size too big for me, and I've been keeping it for when I grow into it, but I've since realized that's silly. FWIW I'm a 38 and this fits more like a 40 to me asking $50 shipped IMG_4037 by , on Flickr IMG_4041 by , on Flickr https://flic.kr/p/phfGsB https://flic.kr/p/p13xTE Polo Ralph Lauren unstructured cotton jacket 3/2, darted tagged size 42 R a recent jaket in great used condition 22"...
Some neat-ish stuff: Hermes Tie (not a color or pattern I'd wear and kinda dirty) Really cool vintage Banana Republic handkerchief, I'm a big fan of the abandoned republic blog which highlights the good old days of BR when it was more like J. Peterman. IMG_5560 by , on Flickr
Near the end of 2013 I bought a suit from a big, popular ebay suit seller. I checked it over when it arrived and it appeared to be fine. Finally got around to taking it to my tailor for a couple things, only to discover that in the light of day the pants are just a close fit, near the same color but a slightly different weave and material. Am I just screwed? the transaction is like 8 months old.
I'm in the same boat as you, I have a pair 1/2 size down and a pair a whole size down and am trying to decided which pair to keep. The fact that they stretch and break in so much complicates things. Keep us posted
I'm having real sizing problems with these and was wondering if anyone could help. I have two pairs, 10D and 10.5D (I'm normally an 11D): -the 10.5s fit well out of the box, but are a bit roomy in the toe and have a bit of heel slip. -with the 10s, one foot is ok, but the other is pretty uncomfortable, no room to slide forward, tight at both sides of the foot, and with my last three toes almost smashed. When reading stuff online about these I continually come across...
I have a question about RRL jeans: I bought a pair of one-wash, but otherwise dark and plain selvedge RRL jeans like 5+ years ago. They're tagged 32x34, but the inseam was closer to 36" and the cut of the legs was a bit too generous for my tastes. I figured I'd grow into them, but it's now been so long I figure I'll just sell them. Before I do, was just wondering if they shrink very much in the wash, an inch or so in width would make them fit much better. TLDR do...
Can anyone give me any advice on the penny loafers? I bought two sizes, my regular, branock, size and a half size bigger. The regular size is a bit tight at the sides of the toes, while the 1/2 size big is a bit too long in the toe but much, much more comfortable. I think is these stretched out like unlined Aldens I'd be alright with my regular size, but they seem much sturdier. Any advice?
I got a pair of these when they were on sale at STP, can't say enough about how good they look. I'm usually an 11 D, sized down 1/2 and got a 10.5, now I want to pick up a pair of 10s and see how they fit, any idea where to find the best rpice on these is? I just missed the Brooks Brothers sale.
