    They are the fashion equivalent of "straight to video."

    1st one can "possibly" work... but even then, still too out there... I would buy 1 if it's 10 dollars, and maybe there might just be 1 halloween party where this would work[​IMG]

    I could see these working relatively nicely with a pale yellow OCBD, charcoal cardigan, and some sort of spring-y pants.

    The print quality is excellent, very crisp and sharp, but they be ugly.

    I think I like the first two with a simple preppy look and under a sweater. They're way too loud to be out in the open. At least the pattern's not psychedelic, which would be a lot worse IMO.

    They're going to fill a lot of outlet shelves with those.

    I'm pretty sure they do something similar every year.

    Wow. I might wear #1 on a day where I'm mad at the world. The rest, not so much.

    When I start selling ties like Ralphy does I will be comfortable commenting on these but meanwhile I dont so I wont.

    Maybe though we can join this thread with the guy wishing to dis the dead persons family at the funeral...

    I saw them in the economist print ads. It looks like polo is REALLY reaching to differentiate the PL line.

    I guess they are original....but they look like the simpsons on LSD sooo....no.

    They also had a few page spread in Departures. Front inside cover IIRC.

    You mean the private sale that only those that go to the site through the regular home page can get to? That private sale?
