    On a totally unrelated note, does anybody have a blue or navy bow tie they'd want to sell me on the cheap? Brand does not matter in the slightest. I'm standing up in a wedding this spring and the bride wants the groomsmen in blue bow ties. Thanks in advance!

    I recently found this Navy PRL/Corneliani, cashmere sports coat. Dual vented, horn buttons. Question: Is this a vintage hard three button jacket or was it originally 3/2 and pressed into a hard three? Did PRL ever make a hard three cashmere blazer?

    They definitely did 3 button models with Corneliani, not sure about the cashmere sport coat specifically. I have a couple of the "Polo II" models that are 3 button.

    If you're wondering if it's 3 roll 2 just look at the back of the button hole on the top button. See if it's cleanly stitched as the button hole stitching on the middle and bottom buttons. Hope this makes sense.

    Thread first? Stupid me. Should have stuck around to see if anything else from this donor came out. These came out on a new arrival rack, right before I left. Winter apparel was 50% off and the cashier said "Nobody wears these in the summer, so these must be winter". :slayer:

    Whether or not it's real, that tag looks janky. G, S, and R are the wrong shape, weights of the letters are inconsistent, bad kerning (look at the space between R and S), crossbar of A is too low, and the text is too close to the right border. Is it an older version of the logo or something?
