    Lol. Should have clarified. The RL Mansion / Flagship in London. It's not technically a mansion (that's in NYC), but it looks like one.

    It’s the simple pleasures that keep me coming back. Made in the USA, and no need to speculate as we lived the adventure — church, homecoming, awards show, and one of these would be hugging your neck. I’ve found others, but never so many crests or medallions.

    Surprisingly, I didn’t see any good ones on eBay, even in completed. Going in the drawer....

    @Centaurus3200 and luggage bros, how'd I do on a $9 lunch stop for personal?

    Pop on Hartmann large suitcase, good condition, minor scuffs, needed an extra this size. (Sorry for the potato parking lot pic).

    Bought this Engineered Garments utility coat. Not a great deal at $20 and it's too big. But my friend has been listing my stuff on ebay. Been doing okay. Even got $50 plus shipping for a $2 Burberry tie

    No idea what the coat is worth. Prices seem all over the place. Pretty sure I'll at least get my $20 back.

    Glass is marked 1991, mug is 92. Ready for the season.

    Also picked up two mid90s Braves Christmas ornaments.

    Great piece. I love that utility/chore coat style. I would have absolutely kopped for $20, Engineered Garments always does well.

    As an aside, did anyone see John Malkovich's artist character in "Velvet Buzzsaw"? He would have totally worn this jacket.
