    Yup you're seeing one of the stores newest pricing ideas.

    @Ilikethelights sometimes it's stores that donate some of the newer items. Around here there's a season when Jcrew, Bonobos, Gilt, Unionmade and other big name stores donate items. If I were you I'd pop back in a few more times as more might come on out.

    My favorite part is that the same store has (had?) some recentish mainline Zegna orphans for $14.99-$19.99.

    I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I have just been swamped and I have been getting ready to meet with my accountant to finish my taxes. There is A lot of stuff that goes into taxes when you are doing this as a business (and another separate business too!). I know many of you already know that!

    I'll get back on here hopefully soon. I am so behind. But, I have a question.

    What is the Pendleton Shirt/Jacket called that has the metal snap/buttons. It is not just a Shacket. There is a name for the style. I think it starts with a C, but not sure. Anyone know?

    CPO maybe?

    The one that is like a blazer/shirt is called the 49er.

    This is what I am referring to. The snaps on the pockets are metal. The buttons are larger sort of like a blazer, but flat like a big shirt button.

    Something like this one, with two breast patch pockets, snap cuffs, corduroy collar, and handwarmer pockets with cotton flannel lining? Mine's labeled an "OutdoorsMan" on the tag sewn under the regular pendleton label.

    I think @capnwes nailed it. I think its a CPO.

    Change of subject. For all the folks that do this for a business. How many miles do you usually claim on your taxes? (of course, I have perfectly recorded all my miles and in a legal and orderly fashion just like the IRS would expect and I am not asking this for any reason other than an educational purpose -- TAKE THAT NSA listening and reading everything we do and say).
