It is RL signature, but not a predecessor to PL or BL, as PL and Signature were made concurrently. Signature is pretty darn good quality, with more handwork than the US-made Polo suits, but not as much as PL or BL. Excellent pick up for yourself, but notsomuch for flipping because it's a rather esoteric RL line.

Ties... Alain Figaret and Ralph Lauren (is this the purple label I'm looking for?

I did learn that they are being made again in Japan (since 2005) by an avid Rocky Mtn Featherbed collector who "re-opened" the business.

Was doubly pleased so find that this one is from the original company...and I have yet to find another instance of this specific color combination. 

Definitely! Well done. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Oddly enough, I didn't see any of the repro stuff in Japan, though I did see a lot of other cool vintage repros of companies that I know went under decades ago. I'd be happy to find either or.

Could have been the day of my life, but pretty good nonetheless. Came into contact with some flippers, ran to the shelves and grabbed anything of quality. Please see pictures below.

At lunch I popped into the thrift store down the block and found these. From left to right: John Varvatos made in Italy; unknown made in France (see teaser for the tag; any ideas would be welcomed!); Atelson Collection super 130s (anyone know this brand?); and my very first Zanella unicorn. All of these are about an inch too small in the waist for me; thus, they strengthen my resolve to drop more poundage. In other words, not available. At least for now, while I'm still optimistic. Interestingly, they're tagged with different sizes (US35, EU50, EU48, and EU44) but all have been altered to about a 34" waist and it shows in the amount of fabric available to let out.

The best part is that it was half-price-clothes day, so the total for all four came to $8.48.

Anyone recognize this French tag?

 

 

Likewise, anyone know this label?

 

 

My first FF Zanella:

 

 

 

Yesterday I found this chocolate brown corduroy RRL at the same little store. Not available. When I first saw it, I thought it was missing a sleeve button, then discovered it had working buttons. Dang. Working sleeve buttons in a corduroy jacket? Cool.

Now if that was only a 3 piece 100% cashmere MENS suit... *sigh*

Gucci certainly looks real and I am feeling the Tomasso Fordolini vibe on that!

Lol, I completely forgot I tossed that thing in there.  I was curious about a $7 (with shipping) automatic watch on eBay, and this thing came in the mail.  Toootally inaccurate picture when I bought it, so was never ever going to wear it.  Have fun!

Love that outfit! Purple and pink tones work really well together with the blue.  And those shoes are gorgeous, and look like a great fit.

Oh, and I passed a really cool old H. Freeman & Sons. tweed SC from the 1950's with a beautiful label, 42S I think.  Was going to pick it up until I realized a trio of holes in the side.  Can get it on half-off day if anyone wants.  I was sad to leave it since it was interesting, but damn holes.

If it's PZ Sartoriale definitely it would be worth the pick up. If it's ordinary PZ, YMMV. More active voices may have better knowledge of the second hand PZ market than me.

 

Trying to move anything Pal Zileri on eBay for even a fraction of what it's worth is a frustrating experience indeed. A bunch of rubes on that site, I tells ya.

I've been meaning to post every time someone writes something like that, so don't take it personally (and don't let it detract from your solid haul): Guys, working cuffs aren't all that uncommon on casual coats. I've found them on a bunch of cheap stuff - even a (pre-SF) BR coat of mine has them.

How do you like the quality? I've always pass on these. Nothing too special.

+1 I think the line is now defunct.
