Is this cigar? Fairly sure it isn't #8.

BB Fitzgerald, made in Italy. Moon fabric 50/50 wool and silk marked 38R. Too tight in the shoulders, so it's up for grabs.

Did I waste $10 on these Nikes? I don't know shit about Nike but they're the oldest ones I've seen.






Also can anyone dig up info on this? eBay completed and Google gives me nothing. I should ask on the schott forum I suppose. But if you guys know...

That Schott jacket looks sweet... I can't tell you if it's worth much, but I'd wear it if I didn't own three other down pieces.

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.

Yea thats why I stated previously that they pretty much don't make anything...and no I wasn't shitting at all, a Polo Desk is a sick find, nobody realizes that that entire company is just one big licensing contract and what isn't licensed, the clothing, is contracted to true, skilled, manufacturers, to do the work for them. There was a day when it was US made in RL owned factories, these days are no more....  I guess the creative director, trend forecasting team, buy planners, buyers, and lower level designers still play a role in Purple Label at least....besides that, all else is numbers and contracts....

Not a waste at all. Very common model (for vintage Nikes) being the Oceania. They'll clean up nicely. Are they about 11"/25.5/26cm? If so, I will PM you :D

Probably about that - too small for my 9.5… Maybe women's?

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Hint, its the one with the outdated boxy cut and football pad shoulders

 

Great acting job by the "man on the street."

Long time no post, but have a question.
My brother picked this up...I know @capnwes identified this weave before but cannot remember it



Also, does this look familiar? Sorry for the crappy pic.



Thanks
