PRL is Polo Ralph Lauren, this is Ralph Lauren Purple Label much higher quality. I know you know that, but if you label it as PRL you won't get the same eyeballs as you would if you labeled it RLPL.

He was a big chap, must have been at least 50L.

 

In my experience, Big/Tall gents carry big wallets with tall stacks of cash.

Unless he means 'Purple Ralph Lauren' ;)

 

Here's some quick pics of I what I did pick up earlier.

This USA made Shearling and Suede bomber thing. So sick; but will take it to the dry cleaners to make the fur white again.

 

 

 

...and a standard Aquascutum blue tie. Can't go wrong with the staples.

I made the trip back to the store yesterday after exchanging PMs with a few of you. The lady at the counter told me they had it examined by a local jeweler and it will need the date movement repaired. Otherwise, it's in decent condition. It will be 30% off next week, so I'm gambling it will still be there. If it is I'm purchasing and taking it for a repair estimate. I'm not a watch wearer, so if the cost of the repair is too high I'm more than happy to pass it along to someone here. However, if the repair cost is reasonable im keeping it.
