I used an old pocket RRL pocket square for both.
This is great. The shirt, belt, and jeans, PS.... all RRL working wonderfully together. Now I want that belt. You could probably rebrand that shirt "Visvim indigo patched" and sell it for $6000.

Then earlier this week i check and see that same exact shirt in the size I ordered and now it's listed at full price.
Last year I had an order cancelled and they even had the nerve of charging me $5 bucks for the cancellation. Never mind their measurements are quite often off.

Doubtfull. He doesn't charge that much for rather unexceptional vintage shirts. In fact RRL shop can be quite reasonable with his pricing. He does often have some very interesting pieces at good prices, and at one time he was an almost exclusively RRL vintage purist. Now, holy shit, he's selling polo blue label, Aboud, DKNY, Abercrombie, and, most eccentric of all, he's fabricated his own labels for certain pieces of whatever. Most unusual for a guy who refused to sell any RRL culled from factory outlets, including "bland and boring" raw selvedge USA made RRL jeans. Weird. Still, it's always worth checking what he's got every once in a while.
He's also dramatically dropped his prices on certain items like the bowery boots which he charged $900 for at one point, down $400 or so now. Too much competition from the those damn factory flippers I guess.
