    DC area brand. There stuff is typically 50/50 in terms of quality, but there nice stuff is very nice. Toscanno turned me on to them, because they are as ubiquitous as Van Heusen around these parts.


    I always avoid grabbing them, but the one time I did, it was probably the easiest sale I ever made.

    This is true too. But I just hate everything about pants. Nobody really wants to buy them online either as thats probably the item that you need to try on the most.


    Ah she's a beaut, innnt she?


    +3 Nat, that sucks, but go find that massive honeyspot and make it work for ya!

    And who's up for another round of sportcoat/orphan? Though I'm fairly certain I'll be heading back to search in vain for pants, I could not leave without this Made in Italy PRL

    Only thing I'll add here is that "Britches" is different from "Family Britches," which is a boutique store up these parts that sells some decent stuff, but under their own brands (i.e., you'll see "Southwick for Family Britches.")

    Yep, that's a RLPL tie, and I think there is a way of removing shine on wool/silk...
