I've got a line on some shoes I've been hunting for at least 10 years.

Didn't have to go one second beyond this shot to tell you which one was Jos A Bank





Hint, its the one with the outdated boxy cut and football pad shoulders

The second one?

Lunchtime pop on a crispy fresh Isaia shirt and Dutti chinos. That's all folks.

Thrift Funded Brag and Thanks. 

 

I just received my Clemson Season Tickets and Parking Passes as well as my tickets to this weekend's game between Clemson and Auburn in Auburn.  All of these have been Thrift funded! 

 

I am so thankful for all of the help and tips the experts in this thread have provided.  Huge shout out to @vexco @Chotii @1ofTheCoolKids for all of the pointers and secrets they have shared.  I love this new hobby and this awesome community!

Is this Samuelsohn? Wouldn't usually consider it John Nordstrom but it's 100% LP Cash

Even without looking at the fits in that JAB ad, I guessed the second one specifically because they gave him the only tie that stuck out. If you watch the commercial quickly, obviously your eye is going to be drawn to the only focal point of the 4 people. It's like a really shitty David Blaine trick.

Nah Dude!!!! He did for like 25-30 years or so but he stopped building when he stepped down....he also stopped weaving on the Ralph Lauren Bed Sheets sold at Macys as well as Mixing the Ralph Lauren brand pants you can find at Home Depot .... dude just quite on us....

 

 

But real talk, people don't know that Ralph Lauren has nothing to do with the fucking dozens and dozens of licenses he has for all types of bullshit out there, people think it's all manufactured by the Corp....I was merely informing it ain't...sarcasm appreciated nonetheless...

Yea I wasn't saying it to be a dick, just in general, since it's a multi billion dollar Corporation, people assume that they make everything they put his name on, from furniture, to sheets, to Furniture, to Pant, to Fragrance etc.... but they pretty much don't make a damn thing haha....

Seemed like you were shitting on his find. It was a great find.

In this case it's the same thing as licensing Purple Label to be made by Caruso or Cantarelli. The RL Home/PRL furniture is licensed to reputable American furniture manufacturers. There's a premium added for the RL name and design, but that's standard for a premium company.
