I like to go to the retail stores sometimes, so I can check out new labels and tags, and also to learn more regarding identifying authentic v. Fake items.

In my experience the brooks brothers outlets are pretty shit. They aren't outlets in the true sense (liquidating unsold/offseason goods) but rather retail locations for thier crappy diffusion 346 line.

Went to the outlet in Orlando and managed to find the one rack that had regular BB stuff (not 346), on sale, then further marked down on clearance.  All wonky sizes and stuff you wouldn't want...I'm pretty sure most of us do better picking up BB stuff at Goodwill.

You should try camping.  It's awesome.  heh.  :smarmy:

But seriously I bet you have some great camping spots in MN.  One thing I miss about Oregon is camping up by Mt. Hood - shit was amazing.

I got 11.5 hours of sleep last night. Best. Thing. Ever.

 

Super Jelly.  Even when I'm beat I can't get more than 7 or 8 - just wake up *bing* for no reason.  Today was catching a snooze on the sofa and fricking work called for some frivolous reason.  RAGED at them.  :fu:

That's gorgeous.

Looks pretty nice! Reminds me of the place where my wife grew up (in the foothills of the Rockies in Alberta).

Haha, oh I love camping. Lots up great spots in Northern Minnesota. Sadly my wife much prefers camping at KOA's and other such camp grounds where there's a shower, bathrooms, kids running around, etc. I much prefer hiking way out into the woods, setting up the tent and not seeing anyone else for a few days.

Sounds about right...

 

I took my wife on an overnight snowshoe camping trip in Yosemite last winter (the one where we actually had snow in the mountains). She loved it, especially watching me gathering snow to melt by walking back and forth 30 feet away to get clean snow for cooking and drinking. Of course, the idea of digging a pit in front of the tent door appealed to her as well.

I hope you gave her an Old King Clancy.

I think what hbkshin was trying to get at is there there are a zillion variables with this stuff, unfortunately neither the labels nor the buttons communicate enough information to be able to help you out. What size are they? What shape are they in? What are the lapels cut like? Vented? Odd sleeve length? Materials used? Canvassing? Country of manufacture? etc. etc. etc. 

Furthermore, buying for what? Self-use, flipping, trade bait? Again, all things that factor in.

Some things are definitely auto-kop (Anderson & Sheppard, Vicuña anything) but for everything else, there are a myriad of factors that should go into the decision. Hope this helps!

Got it. I was thinking for flipping. For example I know to buy this without asking:



There is just too much stuff here to list that kind of detail for all this gear. Each of those hickey freeman are center vent flap pockets size 41 42 and 44 long. I think I'll get them just in case.
