So today I go to one store. I was flipping through suits and sportcoats, seeing nothing but the usual Stafford, Cricketeer, and Jos A Bank. Finally, I get to the LAST sportcoat on the rack, which appears very nice. I open to look at the label and BAM...
Side vented, appears recent... By the pattern, I knew it was definitely a suit jacket, but the pants weren't with it. I look over the jacket a little closer, AND
I tell myself, "okay, only a couple small holes, easily reweavable. If I find the pants its still totally worth it." I frantically flipped through the pants rack, and ahead I see some gray nailhead pants in the same color. SCORE. I head over to the pants, and as I'm getting closer I see the purple label with cursive writing. FINALLY my luck has turned around. Then I actually read the writing on the label...
Talk about wanting to punch Ron Cherskin. I would like to take baseball bat to Mr. Flussers knee caps.
Obviously, I searched the whole store and never found the pants. Still, it felt wrong to pass on a $5 RLPL jacket, so I picked it up. Maybe there's some guy out there with gray nailhead RLPL pants that has been waiting for this jacket to come along...post #28526 of 1387283/12/12 at 7:31pmpost #28527 of 1387283/12/12 at 7:37pmpost #28528 of 1387283/12/12 at 7:37pm

This is a joke, right?post #28530 of 1387283/12/12 at 7:39pmQuote:
Yes and no. The old stuff is fab--I have a flannel suit found at GW that's the bomb, as well made as any mainline BB these days. I couldn't sell it for squirrel doo-doo, but, fortunately, it fits and is a staple in cool weather. Ebay fools notwithstanding, any 346 is a tough flip, even on AAAC, even the vintage stuff that's the equivalent of, I daresay, RLPL (yes, I think that a fair amount of old-school 346 is that good). There are too many label whores and too few aficionados. Vintage JAB is another example. It is well-made and thoughtful--and utterly worthless. I sob most every time I see it when it's not my size, I rejoice when it fits. That is, should be, the magic of thrifting: Finding unique stuff that works for you. Finding stuff to flip is only a bonus.
