    Nothing clothing related, but came home with this very nice camera from the 1880's.
    Probably paid a little too much, in a thrift shop I normally bypass because of it's high prices, but it's in great condition and just needs a lens.
    A set of three original mahogany plate holders too.

    Made by George Hare of London, and this model was introduced in 1882.

    Nice job Spoo!

    Eazye asked me to look out for some navy blue twill trousers at the spot he found the Poole, and these caught my eye so I sent him a phone pic. Well made, no branding, and blue twill?

    Then I found another pair with the same lining..

    @silverwarebandit, RL just cycles through the labels with fabrics and styles. I found a shirt that I just knew was going to be RRL because I'd found it no more than a few months ago. Label was PRL.

    Between 44R and 44L it looks like, sorry! If it was 40R I would have worn it 100 times by now.

    Yeah, I've noticed with RRL at least, the styles that sell out quickly wind up having a very similar PRL the following season. Before this piece, I found a very similar Iron Ore star print shirt which was a fast selling piece. Which is cool, because I'm way more likely to find polo.

    And speaking of Daiki, enormous shout-out to @snackbandit for hooking it up with this EG tartan jacket. Happened to be wearing a 19th c. BD in a similar plaid yesterday so I threw the jacket on overtop. Proper fit pic once I figure out what to wear this thing with.
