Yea it doesn't say Prorsum on the main tag either but like you said I've seen similar listed as Prorsum

on that Prorsum, shouldn't you be able to find it in whatever season collection?

It's a awesome spot. They have sweet deals on stuff that's hard to find. They have snow beach and p-wing stuff on the walls in mint condition. Then pinks is across the street for lunch as they don't open till noon.

You have been there? I want to make it a goal of mine in the next year.

Came across this gorgeous, current Hickey Freeman navy blazer in a soft wool/silk blend. My size. Soft shoulders. Partially lined. Gorgeous.



Fucking motherfucker. This asshole chopped off at least two inches, totally ruining the "balance" of the coat. Fucking heartbreaking. It would have been my new go-to navy blazer.

It looks normal in a picture still as sleeves are much shorter than the body. What does it measure?

I left it out of frustration. It's the angle. I tried it on. It looks very off.

FYI

 

Linda recently posted a ton of RLPL shirts in her store and almost no title mentions Purple Label. I'd be wary though on sizing, I'm trying to see if any would work from me but some of the measurements make no sense. I assume most of them are from the same person but things like the sleeve length vary tremendously between shirts. She has two shirts, both sized 16.5, one has a 42" chest and the other has a 50" according to the listing.

Can't trust any of Linda's measurements. I bought a loro piana coat from her, size 3xl and the listing said 46" chest. I bought it because I know I wear 3x in loro, sure enough it arrived with a 26" p2p measurement.

Annnnnd I'm returning that "Loro Piana" 100% Cashmere trench I thought I stole the other week. I think @SpooPoker was right in saying that it was a Chinese tailored piece with Loro fabric.

Leave it to her to make a $300 shirt look the most terrible it could possibly look.

Seems like it's cut just below where pocket would end. Almost expect to see pocket liners peeking out from bottom.

eh I guess so. I wonder if pocket flaps can be moved or if there's some material left to let it back out? I kinda like the jacket lol and if it fit me otherwise I'd probably have gotten it but to each their own.

Can anyone explain why she has the sleeves/cuffs folded inwards on the dress shirts?
