I have a blue one in my closet. I don't often wear a suit, but when I need to, it's usually this one.

Awesome!! I myself have yet to embrace the cropped trou look, but am hoping to make it happen this winter with a few different pairs of pants.

Nice overcoat.

eBay thrift sale brag.  Sold a lot of 2 50R's for $200.00 BIN but never had a HSM suit go for this much auction style.  Those extra grande suits are money.

Thanks! No untimely end. It's just tough to keep up in here, especially when I haven't had time for thrifting.

I love my RRL. The denim is great, but the cut is the best (for me). Gustin's cuts are too skinny through the thigh for me, but I'm very interested in RPMWest

I love everything about this. I've become somewhat obsessed about getting a pair of Santoni Fatte a Mano's after missing out on an amazing pair on eBay by about 30 seconds (BIN).

BARREL:
I agree on that rrl is overrated especially shirts
But those jeans match my measurements exactly I like the styling and fit and I have been searching for black selvage for forever and as far as I know gustin doesn't have any
Also no not a cafe racer like those a cafe racer like this

(Just bough on the bay for 28 cents less than my snipe bid)
Also thanks for the link acosbysweater

I've always done well with HSM in larger sizes 50+

RRL denim is about the only thing from the brand that isn't overrated.

Their bags, especially the ones made of the denim, are amazing, even if they cost 2x as much as I'd pay for them. I checked 'em out at the RL store in Atlanta last year and almost pulled the trigger on one. The shirts and chinos, etc. are nice but way overpriced. The denim, at around $100 on eBay when you occasionally find it, is a steal IMO.

The below covers at least two weeks of finds.

Sorry, but nothing is available and I can't respond to requests for sizes or measurements.

RLPL lambsuede shacket - the reason I even pay attention to suede in thrifts is because I once saw a RLBL suede shacket in a Marshall's for a reduced price of $900. Happy to find the RLPL version in pretty much the same condition as the new RLBL one.

Two "Made in Italy" cashmere / silk blend sweaters w/MOP buttons. Unfortunately the label tags have been cut off. Do these look familiar to anyone?

RRL chambray workshirt - Speaking of RRL, I was actually pretty surprised by the quality of this shirt. I've seen much worse for $200. Of course when you pay $8, it makes it's a different story. I just find it odd that they manufacture in China, considering the Americana theme of the clothing.
