    You don't want me and my people to have to run up on you for exposing us do you? :marchal:

    To 46:
    Lol, I'm a bit confused, do you mean like the maker? Because it seems pretty clear that you know they are vintage PRL boots Bench Made in Maine. Or are you wondering if someone like C&J made these? If the latter, I don't think it would be anyone in particular since I believe (I could be wrong someone else who doesn't want my title but knows this answer correct me :p) the Bench Made USA stuff is Made by RL themselves.

    Thx Hyakku. Yeah, I was looking for the model name and was wondering if someone else made them for RL. Thanks for clearing up the latter !

    Can't be worse than the 2-3 "Today's Man" or some equivalently shitty suits I saw for $250 today at Goodwill. When asked why it was so much, they said "because the donor said they are new". Look inside it, are there tags? Nope.

    Couple interesting finds today:

    - Oldest Polo RL item I've found to date. a 1976 suit. Not terribly dated. Lapels are a bit wide but that's about it. Any collector's out there? Otherwise this is going back as it has a pencil-eraser size moth hole on back near the right shoulder. No tagged size. Fits about a 38-40 R.

    - *Staple Item* Charcoal Flannel 2 btn Polo RL suit. Flat front trousers. No tagged size, fits like a 40-42 R. Available
