    If you find LP, RLPL, or Isaia again, size XL - XXL gimme a holler ;)



    Yup, PRL polos and BB's are my solid staples, and if I find Lacoste (not too often), I bag them for myself.

    I would love to wear a higher end polo or short sleeve shirt, i.e. the likes of Avon Celli, Loro Piana etc, but as far as retail or eBay goes, I cannot bring myself to sink over $100 for something that amounts to a tee shirt with a collar.

    Question regarding Gieves and Hawkes. Picked a sick DB, Peak Lapel suit up today because it was the first time I have ran across G&H. I thought it to be legit because of its make and the fact that it had a Bloomingdale's tag on the inside. But when I got into my car I thought "shit, Bloomingdales is def a department store that would create this stuff under a license" what are they tell tale signs, if any? oh well its available - 40S

    If it's Drake's, it very likely has an "MD" (Michael Drake) somewhere on the content tag.



    Likely Hickey Freeman for GH. Checking where it's made is a good start.

    No.

    Probably available... Like to figure out who made it first. Any other thoughts?

    Not sure what you're asking... I doubt seriously that anyone would fake G&H. G&H has had several other makers make their RTW for them. HF makes lots for them here in Rochester, but I also have a DB navy blazer made by Belvest in Italy that's the tits.

    Well, this is the bragging thread, so if you find something you really like, go ahead and brag about it. But if it's "Christian Dior," "Yves Saint Laurent pour homme" or anything else in that vain, I wouldn't go around touting the brand.

    And, while taste is totally subjective and all, I think that tie is uuuuuuuuuugly.

    ^^^ I don't think that the Andover Shop's English-made ties are supplied by Drakes. I think that they might be supplied by Michaelson's of London.
