Haha...the AAAC Trad forum just blew up with folks mad about outlet-store merchandise being deceptive.

ALL of the major clothing retailers have stuff made just for the outlets, and almost none of it is labeled as such. It sucks, but it's become industry standard. Brooks just did away with the 346 outlet line in favor of new labels that are even more like the mainline. Mainline shirts have "Est. 1818" in the oval, now outlet shirts have the same label but with just "1818," no "Est."

They're 18" across but I bet they'd shrink in the wash a bit

I did notice that sometimes Caruso does use alternative languages on their tags. For example, for their items made for Vakko, the internal tag is in Italian and Turkish.

But don't you guys have an amazing RL outlet? You should be hitting that for flipping.

I have a big one near me, indeed. But it's still pretty pricey. I've bought plenty of items, but all for personal use.

That stop wasn't a total loss. The guy passed on these:




And I got the cassettes so I can still rock out in the car.






Also got this. Needs to be cleaned up but came with the original receipt and manual.

I remember one time the RL outlet at Woodbury commons had RLPL dress shirts for $29.99 (down from $500 or something). Should have cleaned them out, but I bought only 2 for personal use.

Well. Shit... If that happened here, I'd walk out with way too many! $30 for RLPL... Goddamn.

@Nataku and other LP dudes...

Are you buying these LPs to flip or for personal collections (or both)? LPs are always abundant here, but I have never looked through them because I have no idea what to look for (in terms of flipping). Any advice/thoughts?
