Can somebody explain this Tommy Hilfiger thing to me. I'm so out of the loop on this. Brain esplode.
post #32283 of 51448
A person who has a Wu_tang member for his avatar doesn't understand the Hilfiger thing?

I'm joking; it's something that I don't understand either...I can't tell what's just old tommy and what's desirable. Is it like Polo; the more louder and 90's the better?

@Fueco?  I've found absolutely zero information.

Back from the dead?!

 

Imagine the polo stuff that sells. Spell out, bright colors, etc. Apply that same concept to Tommy. Older sailing jackets, windbreakers, etc with big logos or spell out logos are hot right now.

One of the smaller Colorado labels from the late 70's/1980s. That piece is probably early 80s. Can you see the date code on the back of the GoreTex label?

 

Chinook Sports was the newer name of Banana Equipment. The link below shows an ad from a 1981 issue of Backpacker Magazine.

If I remember correctly, RRL were made in USA first then Japan. Now they are back to made in USA.

if those RRLs were my size I'd scoop with the quickness. I want some RRL slim fits in the rare Jay Leno wash

I guess I have to post some things I found today to repay the world for the valuable Tommy information which has been imparted to my brain

Here's my take on PC.
Fabrics are great.
Features are usually very cool.
Cut is a little more modern in certain places like waist suppression.
But you just can't get away from the fact that it's made by Samuelsohn.

Sort of like you can't get away from the fact that the Epaulet jackets are made by Southwick. It's just not going to fit like the Armoury Ring Jacket.

Photo dump, some of this has already been posted but now with better pics. NA unless you really want it and are paying cash. Not spoilered because most of my best finds are here.
