I wish I would have found that purple Polo. I'm a 42L (and a big fan of a certain team that wears purple)! I recently dyed a pair of thrifter vintage nubuck chukkas purple to wear to a game this fall.

 

Please spoiler when quoting posts with lots of pics.

Good! I think this would still be considered brown dominant ERDL camo. The very last of it. Not as valuable as the Vietnam era stuff, but still should bring in a decent return and worth saving from being used as a Halloween costume. In 1979, they switched to a slightly different pattern that is sometimes referred to as "transitional" or "RDF". Was right before the Woodland camo that we know today was developed in the early 80's.

No-name brand for myself - I liked the look and it was minty:

 

 

 

 

Not sure how this lasted until 50% off - made in USA, down filled:

 

 

 

 

 

Surely a repro but I dig the graphics:

 

 

 

 

Jacques Pecnard.  Not worth a whole lot but I like it.  S/N litho.

It was still there! Polo Experts, what do I have?

 

I've searched and searched. I've found about 4 eBay listings, many references to a rapper that has an album titled "Polo Sporting Goods" and that is it. Most of the other items have a r P l logo on them. Mine does not. Mine also has the content/care tag on the side and not underneath the main tag as in other pictures I've found. I have not found this specific jacket yet. Does anyone also know the significance of "91"? It is in pretty good shape, only one snag that I noticed, needs a good dry cleaning.

Only 10 miles from me. So free shipping and handling.

jealous... i've observed a steady stream of good art out of that location....

post #44445 of 50997

Is that the by-the-pound place? Went to that once and never again it was so depressing, despite also living 10 miles from there.

 

Never really understood how those online auctions work—does each individual Goodwill do their own auctions or (I'm guessing) one central location in the area, like a regional office? Some serious effort went into creating that listing.
