    Can anybody help with authenticity check? Not sure there's much value either way but didn't want to leave it here for $6

    ^^looks legit to me. not a lot of meat in terms of resell, and not super high quality either. However, Ive picked up a couple in the past in my size.

    Lost all time and motivation to thrift when I started a new job about a year ago and I've only been out occasionally since. However started to flip some old backlog and went out a few times recently - love it.

    Some recent stuff:

    Very nice! Borrelli is gorgeous, and those are the oldest C&Js I've ever seen.

    ^ i like the shoe pics a lot. natural lighting is underrated and the depth of field really brings em to life.

    What is your usual size? I've got a white RLPL button up linen shirt in a large that is too big on me.

    Thanks! Lovely buttonholes and details but unfortunately no pants. Any idea how old the C&Js could be?

    Thanks! Natural light works great in the summer. Winter not so much...

    I've got two RLPL linen shirts in a medium that fit tts. Probably my most worn shirts. On another note, I bought an Escada cardigan for myself today. Zero. Fucks. Given.

    from my experience (ive ownedprobably a dozen RLPL shirts) the linen shirts almost always fit much larger.

    quite honestly, ralph lauren as a whole has so many damn sizing issues its impossible to buy just based on size. I have quite a few RRL shirts that are all a M. some way too big, some way too small. a couple just right.
