    First, a forum etiquette question from a new guy...to spoiler or not to spoiler? Let me know what's preferred. Here's some of the haul for today.

    Anybody know a Ferrari owner? NWT Ferrari polo, size S though.

    Burberry Golf St. Andrews Links shirt

    Bobby Jones navy blazer, 43xl. Does anybody know who makes this? Tags look like HF. Sweet buttons.

    RL linen 3/2 SC, size tag worn off, seems to be in the 41-42R range. The tag looks more navy blue than black or purple. Can any RL experts opine?

    Barbour navy casual SC, size L, keeping for myself.

    And finally, trivia time...anyone, anyone?

    Re: etiquette, I try to post one main picture of the item, and any details can go in the spoilers. If my post has like 50 pictures or so, I spoiler them all to be considerate towards people with slow connections. And I never EVER quote multiple pictures. I'm fairly liberal, but someone doing that makes me wish that congress pass a law mandating it a federal crime punishable by death.

    Not an expert on RL but I know that's a very desirable line. Usually called the 'script label' or 'blue label and widely thought to be the precursor to RL Purple Label.

    It's kinda cool, but hella old, and though people hype it as 'purple label before purple label', the resale is decidedly un-purple-ish, and might leave you feeling blue.

    Of course, YMMV

    No etiquette or rules - walls of pics encouraged.

    Callahan = Tommy Boy. Easy peasy!

    quick question for vintage polo people. i'll spoiler cause this isn't a brag
    i copped this:
    [​IMG]
    it has a label i've "sort of" seen before but i would expect to see a "Polo" tag on this... legit?

    [​IMG]

    made in u.s.a. but no content/care...this is fucking fake as fuck, right? it looks like the lowercase letters are too small or something...

    on the other hand, it looks an awful lot like this script from a 1975 ad:

    [​IMG]

    i dunno, it doesn't really matter either way i just like to be able to trust my nose when i'm out in the field... any insight appreciated.

    Old fakes look better, the off color size on the tag is a no no, stitching through the mallet is bad on a neck tag. Small pony stuff not really desirable unless on a special article of clothing

    ^^^ thanks amigo!

    yeah, when you put it that way "stitching through the mallet", color/size of tag, that's makes perfect sense... anyways, now i can chuck it with a clear conscience lol. small pony aside, it would likely be for personal use... not a fan of fakes tho.
