    I gave up buying those cord jackets a long time ago. Always pissed me off how long it took them to sell/how little they sold for.

    I usually get between 45 and 75 for a corduroy polo, depends on color and style (pockets, buttons, half belted etc.) i always pick them up I’ve never had one sit for very long

    You could try smoking one and seeing if its enjoyable! I mean, you should give that a go either way. Nice cigars, expensive scotch and cheap shitty American lager, I'm a simple man with dumb tastes.

    Nabbed this vintage trucker the other night:

    No side pockets and little e tab put it at 1972-1982, however I'm going to guess 1974-1979 due to the style of that collar. Look at how big and drawn out those points are! That's a 70's collar. Fits like a dream.

    Seems fine to me. Just because it was $15 doesn't make it fake.
