    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.

    RRL stuff does pretty well. It looks like the shirts are selling in the $20-40 range for 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?

    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.
