    In my personal experience even the recent lanvin ties, while nice, aren't really worth anything dollar wise

    Is anyone even going to read this, or are you all watching the counter? :tounge:

    I wasn't even going to GW today but my wife had to check for something.

    First off, a NWT PRL Classic Oxford (blue & white stripe).

    Then some sweet ivy league goodness. This baby must be over 45 years old and it's a long way from home.
    PAtch pockets, beautiful lapel and buttons and single vent. Nothing in it but the H. Freeman & Son tags.

    Measurements:
    Chest: 23"
    Shoulders: 18.25"
    Sleeves: 26.5"
    Length: 32.25"

    Only blemish is an ancient ink mark on near left shoulder blade.

    Available to someone who'd give it a good home and party like it's 1959.

    ^ That's how you do 40000!

    RE: Gant Rugger. I've found some old Gant Rugger stuff that didn't seem especially nice. I think it's just the more current Rugger, designed by Christopher Bastin, that's desired.

    I know you were never really gone DM7, but welcome back anyways. There were 27 of us on at the time of 40K, and I was hoping someone would step up with something worthy!
