Nice, thanks for this. Just picked up a shetland and a blue OCBD (logoless).

I have two Shaggy Dogs I grabbed for $10 apiece during two consecutive J Press sample sales in the Onward Kashiyama offices in midtown Manhattan a few years back - do they still do those? They used to sell amazing stuff for a song, including the shirt I'm wearing right now and some of my favorite things in general. Anyway, it'll be interesting to compare the J Press and Rugby shetlands.

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.

just the shetlands I talked about and one of their rugbys hopefully all the ugly ass branding will come off with a seam ripper

I have only found prl and rugby in the wild shog[1].gif and I only picked up the rugby because it was in my size and 50% off

This is what I'm talking about: http://www.rugby.com/shop/item.aspx?productId=12453686&categoryId=12807468&cp=3138868

The flap pocket works for me but YMMV.

The two Shaggy Dogs had tiny imperfections, which a seamstress fixed for me for a few bucks - most of them were not $10! More like $80, if I remember rightly, which is still a fantastic deal.

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

Moral of the story should be "don't be a shitbag thief"

I'm sure this has been covered before but I am on my iPhone and searching the thread is a pain without a bigger screen. What's the story with a PRL label that is purple instead of blue?
post #58868 of 124770
Saw this today at Marshall's. It was still $1300 though.


They also had a bunch of Zegna, Canali, Corneliani, and RLBL for somewhat reasonable prices.

I picked up a nice Rugby SC a while back.Didn't fit. Tried to offer it to Mex, GMcl, dbcooper, and others and had no takers. Ended up flipping it for about $75 and the buyer was so happy he asked me to keep him in mind if I came across anything similar (!).

Some stuff from this week:

I usually leave striped orphans but this was cold ridonkulous and my size. I'm also a sucker for da purple lining shog[1].gif . You'll bet I'll be haunting that thrift in the next few weeks to see if the pants turn up. I made one of the employees take a pix of it with her iphone. And, maybe one of youse can hook a brother up if you happen to see the pants in ANY size in ur neck of the woods nod[1].gif . The fabric is something called micronosphere which is supposedly good for antiwrinking abilities.

C Trywhitt in my size



Sugoi Wimmins NWT fluorescent Running/biking jacket, sze XL



Canali sportswear FF cords. Prolly N/A

Skeet


But Wait Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
WTF! Who dresses their kids in this shite?! I still bought it. Maybe a smaller guy will want it or I'll get some of that Modern Family demographic.

Off white BB slim fit. Only drawback is that the guys initials are on the chest. I'm pretty sure I can get them out.



Big Ass Gucci Scarf.


Realz? Looks to be hand rolled. Worth anything? Logo reminds me of the movie Blazin Saddles. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Helly Hansen glove liners



PRL Blue green skinny tie. All silk but has that lineny texture:

Drink more water
Quit smoking
Earlier to bed
Drink less
Remember birthdays
Pay off credit cards


Ah fuck it!

AND thrift more Kitons and Brionis nod[1].gif

Yeah, a casual button down. Meant to be untucked, not my cup of tea.

I picked this up for me, it's from a San Francisco men's clothing store called The Hound. It fills a nice slot in my closet, as I'm working on building up my SC selection. Slightly above thrift pricing at $20. I was waiting to see if there was going to be a sale on it, but it's been a month so I just snagged it before someone else picked it up.




And along the lines of Greg16's "Gentlemen, I know what you are thinking and the answer is yes, I can proxy."

Why so serious?
