    Did he start the dispute yet? Just accept it if you've already offered a refund. If not, just wait for him to do so.

    and this...
    [​IMG]

    but fortunately it wasn't a total loss as it also had this...
    [​IMG]

    Sadly as much as I want to believe I can make this work on me the shoulders are just too small and it is available to a smaller 40 or 38R...

    To me this looks like just an old label. I has a sweater vest that's about 10 years old from back when they started making their comeback that is made in France. Lacoste essentially disappeared in the US from about '84 - '85 to the early 2000's. I think Devanlay is their mass producer much like Izod and Chemise were in the 1980's

    Damn, where are the wide-ish size 12 shells at. One of these days.

    Came across my first Aquascutum coats/suits today. All appeared to be in excellent condition, though on the inner pocket opposite the ones with the Aqua tag, the previous owners decided to cut the tag out in a most novel way. They cut the entire fucking pocket along with the tag [​IMG]. Then again, Aquascutum shouldn't be made in the U.S.A. right? These were... Diffusion?

    Looks like you know more, I recant and defer to jkidd's judgment on this one.
