If you don't mind my asking, do you have a set of tricks that you use while searching Ebay to separate the wheat from the chaff and come up with great stuff like this?
Sort by "Ralph Lauren" and you will get 40,000+ items. However, within those, there are always several misidentified items that are not in the proper subcategories, which is how most people sort. It takes me about 15 minutes during lunch and another 10-15 minutes at night to go through all of the listings. I don't watch TV so this is my replacement, along with reading.

Interesting. Thanks for the tip, I'll have to start doing this.

this is one of the sellers that frequently has calzoreia (sic?) harris shoes.... those look very nice. i just recently picked up a number of CJ made shoes with the channelled soles, including suede jodphurs that appear to be to the same standards, and they seem to rather well made relative to the current polo C&J's....

These aren't C&J. They are Edward Green.

The auction ended. Anyone on this board the buyer? $152.50 a very good buy for someone.

It's gotta be someone from here, look at the previous items purchased. Brioni jackets, Pink ties, Allen-Edmonds shoe trees, etc. I'm not sure we're ever going to know who though - check out the feedback. A rating of 14, but 2 are negative, 1 is accidentally positive and one is neutral - that's 28% of his total feedback that is not positive - not an outstanding record.

Pool St. Discountus. I had to take these off his hands the other week (promptly resold for $406). Poor St. Discountus

Very nice job JN. That's a great price you got for them too. RL auctions are good-hunting ground for clueless sellers....

Make sure you report the profit on your tax return.

I think I'm going to register as an S corporation.

Or set up a 501©(3) charity for the purpose of "encouraging heightened awareness of fraud, deception and outright stupidity in the online garment retail industry." Then, your profits will be tax free, and you can use tax-deductible donations to buy more (free) clothes.
