    Also this thing,any cigar experts here?
    Looks to be vintage,hand carved and made in France.obviously a cigar cutter.
    The cutting mechanism is German made and seems to be common but I can't find anything like this.

    It buttons left over right though?


    I've had more than a few suits/sc's that have had the MG printed on the content/maker tag.



    Hahaha, we actually used to do this.

    Question, and I apologize if this has been discussed (I think it has) as I could not find great info on SF or Google.

    It is my understanding the Ralph Lauren Country was an older version of what became RRL? Are these items considered to be at the same desireability level as RRL? I have seen a piece of two in thrifts over time and they seem to be of good quality.
    Also, I seem to remember seeing shoes with this label - which I think was green. Maker?

    Thanks,

    Yup the RL Country is the precursor to RRL. The early stuff was made in the USA and generally of good quality, the later stuff was made in China and not as good. It does not carry the same desirability as RRL. Not even close. I generally only pick it up for myself, unless it's a Native American pattern or something.

    I saw some killer white suede NOS RL Country bucks the other day and passed (which pained me) b/c they were 9Bs (and small 9Bs at that) and the resale looked to be nil. They were made in USA. Could go back and take a look if anyone were interested but I doubt they're still there.
