    Does anyone know anything about Polo RL made in USA suits? Label looks like this:

    I picked up two suits like this and they are pretty sick. One is a lightgray birdseye, double-vented, with a ticket pocket and side tabs on the pants. I love it!

    On another note, any opinions on this for the ebay listing pic? This is one of the Polo RL suits (did I mention these suits are awesome?). I don't have a mannequin.

    Made by Pietrafesa, which has been gone for probably 15 years. Also did MTM and such I think for Brooks and I think some OTR for JAB. I have quite a few in my closet and all have held up great.

    I went into a local craft store that's goin out of business (at that point, everything was 60%off). They had a sizeable rack full of replacement buttons. I recall seeing a ton of shell/mop buttons, but thought nothing of it. Might go back to see if they're still there/open. Any particular sizes/quantities that you guys might want? If the price is right, I may grab everything that could be of use.

    Noted, thanks.

    Thanks, I'm really surprised they are that old. The styling is a lot more modern then some 8-10 yr old suits I've found. However, I just did the pinch test and they failed, but I can't say I really care.

    Ball games rained out yesterday (very rare for AZ) picked up a couple things, all the talk of Bobby Jones made in Italy golf polos, how about a Ralph Lauren made in Itlay golf collection, marked large but measures medium:

    On the golf them, Alan Flusser golf pants, marked 36x34 but are 35 waist with 3+ to let out, pleated, cuffed, very nice black/navy check fabric, like new condition. Available for cost + shipping

    New WTB Guys.

    Looking for a Dark Charcoal suit with some awesome detail, construction and fabric. Looking for flat front pants and more slim-cut than a not-so-slim cut. 3 Piece would be even better and something like peak lapels or ticket pockets etc. would be double bonus. I like the Corneliani that was posted over @ the B&S but want to see if something other than a nailhead is lurking around these parts. Cheers!

    Yesterday I picked up three suits, one smoking, one tailcoat, four pair of chinos and a black leather belt. I payed $928 for the whole shebang, when the original retail price was $4430. As a student on a very restrained economy I am extremely pleased!

    You just a dropped nearly a grand on completely superfluous items like a smoking jacket.

    We must have different ideas of what "restrained economy" means.
