Anyone e-thrift/discount shop some RL Rugby yet? If so, what did you pick up?

 

I was mentioning this the last time I was out with DM7, for all the RL gear I've seen / picked up, the RRL, RLPL, PRL, etc, I've only seen one or two Rugby pieces. Guess there's just less of it floating around.

Have seen a couple Rugby shirts in thrift. Marshalls and TJ's near me has a good handful of it. They also price it pretty high. Anything Ralph Lauren=Expensive in Marshall's mind. Can be aggrevating because marshall's prices on Rugby are about equal to Rugby's sale prices.

Funny, I've seen a bunch of Rugby but not one stitch of RRL. cloud.gif

With the exception of the Sportcoats (which are made by Caruso) it is really cheaply made. Wouldn't pick up in a thrift store unless it fit me and would only buy it new when on sale. Does the trick for basics at cheap prices. Was really mad when they got rid of their logo-less oxford cloth button downs. Good deal and good fit.

Go figure, must be a regional thing...

 

Also, this

When is an ugly picture frame (of leather and snake skin) not an ugly picture frame?

This is when (Click to show)

Well it's still ugly... But really? Inherited this from my grandparents, had been in their house forever. Weighs a ton for an 8x10 frame.

Secondly, how can you tell those are K-Jackets?  There isn't a strand of colored buttons attached at the collar and you don't know what the label on the inside says.  Even so, they're a great price for COAT level jackets. 

 

Edit:  Bought the light blue/chambray in a 48.  There's one mark on the back that looks like a small abrasion, but that's the style these K Jackets go for anywho.  Looks like it is in fact a K given that some neighboring sizes in the same color are clearly marked as such.  There are some COAT options up there for the same price.

 

THIS. I got one with an abrasion and one with an imperfection in the fabric weave. Considering that these come pre-faded and are very casual it's just part of the pre-patina

 

On the sizing I think it's more that the EU size minus 10 isn't right above 50/40. It's really EU size * .79 so a 52 is more like a 41 and a 54 is more like a 42.

No tailored stuff or nice cardigans yet, but I've seen a ton of shirts and crew neck sweaters. I usually pass on them. Nordstrom at the MOA carries the line and I used to see them a lot at Nordstrom Rack.

I just thrifted these AE Byron shoes that have definitely seen better days. 5$ later they were mine. Do these seem to be repairable?

The SA is attached to the K Mart. The guy was trying to steal jewelry at K Mart. I was unaware that there was jewelry worth stealing at K Mart. Anyway, after being tazed/tazered (?) he attacked the cops with a knife and was shot several times and killed.

Moral of the story:
Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.

I picked up a really nice Rugby shawl collar waffle knit cardigan last year at a thrift. Posted a pic on here, I love it and wear it all the time.

Some, not all of the displaying jackets says "K Jacket" on the collar label. K Jackets fit a bit slimmer than Coat jackets. I, too ordered a size 50 being 5'8" on a good day at 170 lbs. After I ordered, I went back and read it's recommended to up 1 size. Their website sucks! I can't even access my order. I might just try on the jacket to see how it fits. If it's too small, I'll get the size 52, if there are still available.

 

Edit: I used the measurements on this size 40 K Jacket for reference. Although it's a Linen/Cotton blend, whereas the K Jacket I ordered is a Cotton/Poly blend, but I think the measurements are still very similar. I could be wrong though...uhoh.gif

Anyhow, look under "Size Info" for detailed measurements. Also, I stumbled up this K Jacket someone has up for sale. It's a size 40 and the measurements are a bit bigger than the previous one...

Yikes! I'm thinking that's pretty rare in your neck of the woods?

He pulled a knife on the cops after he was incapacitated by police tazer? Holy shit! What kind of drugs was he on? PCP?

 

Bring extra guns, pre-loaded and extra ammo to a gun fight! Or better yet, bring a RPG or two to a gun fight! We are not going to start a gun debate again, are we? uhoh.gif
