No (I assume you mean RL, not "double RL". If the latter, sometimes yes), No, No (usually).
No i meant RRL, the typically western stuff. This is a basic blue dress shirt, they want $8, think it was XL.
I believe it was capnwes...
RRL stuff does pretty well. It looks like the shirts are selling in the $20-40 range for dress shirts.
RRL made dress shirts?
RRL anything is pretty much worth a pick up. I've done well on some pants.
I picked up a nice BB Makers tie for $2 and a Hickey Freeman suit for $12.75. Will post pics and sizing later for the suit because I plan to sell it.
Recent stuff that I thought I'd make available to regulars here. Normal caveats apply, don't PM me if you plan on trying to re-sell/make a profit on any of this.
Vintage Carroll and Co jacket. Some wear on the inside lining but beautiful on the outside. No labeled maker/evidence of who made it. Awesome jacket: double vented, fairly soft shoulders, beautiful glenplaid. Measures out to a 36/38S [think 29 BOC, 19.75 P2P)
Zanella jacket. Again, fucking beautiful pattern. Not sure who the maker is [tried to ID the tag with little luck...it is before the current Caruso-era...Some folks in the Heel/Label thread tentatively ID'ed this label type as older Isaia or Lubiam, but can't confirm]. 35% wool, 35% silk, 30 linen. Front pockets still basted shut, no signs of wear. Double vented, pretty soft shoulders. Tagged 44R, more like a 44L.
Suuuuuper vintage Harris Tweed. 4 (!!!) patch pockets, unvented. This is, I think, a piece of outerwear. Heaviest HT I've ever handled. Tagged 39L, I think that would be true to size if worn as outerwear. Bottom button is missing, but it is just a standard leather button so easy fix.
Recent (2007/2008) Tom James Executive collection suit. Holland and Sherry fabric. Very moden looking lapels. Double vented, single pleated trousers. Pretty soft shoulders. Measures to 44R. Beautiful glenplaid; to my eye, navy with red, blue, and yellow stripes.
Also, any thoughts on the new photo setup?
Looks very nice... very rustic! That Harris Tweed jacket looks like it could weigh 20 lbs!!
that Tom James looks smoking... but I am a 42r.................
Wow. Nice finds - I'd be all over that first jacket and the Zanella if they were my size! I don't always dig outdoor photos, but you've managed to nail the lighting.
The natural light makes the fabric colors look great!
+1. So does the Zanella. Same problem. PLUS: I've cut myself off from new acquisitions. (MUST be good....)
BB bows are always easy flips, and you don't have to resort to the bay. I'll offer $40 for all three CONUS and save him the time of taking pictures.
