    And I also grabbed these without knowing what they were, just cuz they felt like good quality.

    Our marshall's got a little sprinkling of black fleece a month or two ago. Got myself a plaid coat on double markdown.

    They had some jackets that were missing the sleeve buttons. Not the first time I've seen it there. I always wonder if people steal them in hopes of the item being marked down cheap. Scumbag move if so

    i found all the buttons in the pockets.

    2 of the jackets were retailed at $1500, one at $1375.

    and one of them fits absolutely perfect on me OTR.

    Yeah the buttons should be in the pocket, but sometimes they mysteriously vanish.

    My coat was 1k retail. I'll post a photo for the hell of it shortly.

    Please use proper thread lingo. What you've described is a phenomenon aka "pop" and in your case, "pop x 2." Speaking of marshals, went to one that had a bunch of RLPL pants. But this one... [​IMG] Security device red dye all over. The clerk told me that's why the discount...dafaq?

    Cross-post from the BSW thread, my wife is looking for some outerwear. Probably a pea coat and something Barbour-ish but open to suggestions. If you have anything size XS/S 0-2, please shoot me a PM.

    Found this and couldn't pass it up. Vintage embossed full grain leather Boy Scout belt. 60s or earlier I'm guessing.

    Size 36, available.

    Also, a really neat vintage Banana Republic shirt. XS, also available.
