    Finally popped my RLPL cherry but sadly, it was an orphan. Went back twice hoping to find the pants but no dice. Has anyone had any luck reuniting a suit on follow up trips? I am now 0-3 in attempts at buying the jacket knowing its to a suit and hoping that the pants magically show up within the next week or two.

    I lived on a Caribbean island for 2 years. First few months it was enjoyable, but by the end of 2 years I was ready to comeback stateside.

    I did know that. But, the reason that has happened was that I was really busy with my real job and I got behind on several pages. So, when I respond to a post and then a few pages later I respond again, it shows multiple posts.

    Why would I want to increase my post count? Is there some sort of benefit? Or just bragging rights?

    Doesn't winter weather always sound better in summer? Anyway, thrifted this Polo sweater. I know it ain't cashmere bears wearing suits, but seems pretty decent.

    I have been swamped with actual lawyer work, so my thrift/ estate sale trips have been lacking. I did skip lunch yesterday and today to do a little thrifting. Ok, I didn't skip lunch, but I did try to eat it quickly.

    Not spectacular finds -- well two of them at the end are.

    Some that I thought were just interesting:

    Polo Jeans? Brag? Probably not, I'll send it to my brother if its not worth anything.

    I thought this was interesting. It reminds me of the Fresh Prince Graphics

    Geez this is a terrible picture. I don't know why it washed it out. Its a denim LL Bean SC totally unstructured. XL

    What the heck is this?

    Just realized how much Polo stuff stuff I got.

    Is Polo Sportsman a thing?

    [​IMG]

    More Ralph Lauren. Reminded of the $$ Aztec Sweaters. Just Cotton, so probably not much. But, it only cost 50 cents

    Screen Stars dated 1993

    Cool T-Shirt Hanes 50/50 also 1993

    Is a Banana Republic (Cotton) tie Made in Italy anything?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    What about a Banana Republic Helicopter tie also Made in Italy?

    I just thought this next Polo tie was gorgeous especially with the much discussed Fall Season approaching.

    This is something I have never seen before. I have seen thousands of Regimentals. But, this one is specifically labeled as an Authentic Regimental.

    Now, these next two finds made the trip worthwhile.

    A Griswold No. 9 Cast Iron Dutch Oven with Tite-Top lid.

    Cost $15. It needs a little cleaning, but it will fetch 2 bills or more.

    AND, these shoes. IN MY SIZE. But, I wore them around the office and I don't know why, but they immediately made my back hurt.

    The only benefit is receiving the keys to the executive washroom. :happy: Kidding of course, I simply assumed you didn't know it was an option. I apologize, carry on!

    No need to apologize! It annoys me too. But, when I get behind and reply to something on one page and then reply to another, it ends up with multiple replies in a row.
