    Ha ha, we should retrospective this thread on the worst shit ever posted. There have been some doozies. The worst tend to be the ties. Somehow this thread attracts its share of 80's talbotts and brands that at were haut in the 60's but have since turned to absolute shit.

    Just a few things today while out tracking down some proxies from stalwart members:

    Managed to get my hands on 5 pairs of matching all wooden trees: [​IMG](shipping is gonna be fun :D) Not Available

    [​IMG]

    Found this for you Dig! But then I saw the size :/ Black RLPL Polo (My first RLPL) It seemed to be more like a L than XL. Marked at $19 :/
    [​IMG]

    Finally, picked up this amazing Gitman Bros for Bejamin's Shirt. Tagged L. Perfect condition Awesome horn buttons. The pictures dont do the fabric justice, it has a really nice look and feel to it. with a nice subtle over maroon overcheck. (Available - hoping to trade for a solid color shirt 16x34/35)

    I bought a RLPL polo off Alan C last year...excellent condition but it fits more like a compression shirt.
