Good ol' unfiltered Lucky Strikes in the soft pack are still relatively widely available. I picked up a pack in January at a gas station near Waterloo, NY. They were about $8.50.

I'll try to post fit pics at some point. I picked up three and I'm very satisfied with them. Dammit! I was really hoping that I'd be able to wear a tie with this one. Ah well... I...
Has anybody ordered the button-down oxford shirt under the "Sport Shirts" section in size Small? If so, could you please post a neck measurement?
I started wondering after I saw this picture: Do preppies smoke? Or is it now considered one of those awful lower-class habits? And if they do smoke, what brand? (Obviously not Newport.)
These went to clearance on the RL website at the end of last summer for about $600. Really wish I'd bought one. I take the (apparently scarce) size 36R in RLBL. Pic is attached. Price will have to be less than $600, which I suspect isn't a problem on this forum. :P

Do you remember what size(s) the white bone-bit loafers were?
FWIW, I have about five Ralph Lauren polos and only one Lacoste. But I wish I had more Lacoste. I take the smallest size I can find, and the Lacoste size 2 is trimmer than the RL custom fit Small. The fabric does feel nicer on a Lacoste polo, but the biggest difference is on the collar: I find the Lacoste collar has held up to wear much better than the RL collars. The RL start to get stiff and lose their suppleness over time. I haven't had that problem with Lacoste...
I can't remember the retail - it was a while ago - but knowing Holt's pricing, it was probably something like $600 or more. I'm sure if you called the Bloor st store, they could tell you. Mind you, I think they were down in the neighbourhood of $200 at the outlet, so if you're anywhere near Toronto, it might be worth checking it out to see if they happen to have any at the moment. Despite what others have said, I like...
