    I know this is the bad RG label, but i figured this was ugly enough to get some money anyway, thoughts?

    I think that there's some sort of convergence between ugly and embroidered on the RG stuff. I had 2 up recently and the one I would actually wore only made the list price and had way fewer views than an embroidered one (the embroidery looked like little paisleys or amoebas).

    yes, the value of RG is directly proportional to the amount of embroidery. I sold one with embroidered flowers all along the hem for $110, yes US dollars.
    Edit, Klobber, that was the funniest shit I have read in a long, long time. I'm glad I wasn't fucking around and reading that in class...

    I go to this place called Eve's on Broadway, the woman there knows her shit pretty well and her prices are reasonable. I've been meaning to try out this place called Gus's on Ashland though. It was nominated as one of the top 5 tailors in the country by GQ, if that counts for anything.

    Here's some stuff from the past few weeks...Unavailable unless stated otherwise

    First up, BB Makers thin chalk stripe suit for me.
    Can anyone do me a huge solid and tell me who made this? It's the best OTR suit I found so I'd like to get an idea. I'm thinking Southwick.

    Woo, finally - I got a post to go through!

    Klobber - Best. Post. Ever. I seriously lost it, painfully hilarious!

    Jp - That Pink Superfine... goodness. I love Pink shirts.

    Troika - That Kiton looks awesome! Wish I could find some in the wild here!

    As for me... this is all I've got:

    She's a 42L, and other than the L, fits me perfectly. Odd, because I'm a 44R, but I'm not complaining.

    The thrifts here have been pretty dry re: the usual Brioni, Kiton, RLPL stuff that a lot of you guys have been turning up lately. Also, I haven't been able to make it out to the stores as much lately, but I have managed to turn up a couple of vintage pieces for the Trad / Ivy crowd... NOT AVAILABLE.

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ Vintage Andover Shop Pale Gray & Brown Herringbone HEAVY Tweed Sport Coat 40 R. Made in USA. (Actually, this has already been sold, but I wanted to brag about finding it because it is probably the heaviest tweed jacket I have ever found that wasn't intended to be outerwear. It was really nice. [​IMG] )

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ Vintage 1950s / 1960s Brooks Brothers MAKERS No. 1 Sack Suit in Charcoal Gray 41 S. Made in USA. This is THE quintessential "Brooks Brothers Charcoal Gray Suit." Union tags definitively date this to between 1949 and 1962.

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ Vintage 1950s / 1960s Brooks Brothers MAKERS No. 1 Sack Suit in Solid Navy Blue 41 S. Made in USA. Union tags definitively date this to between 1949 and 1962.

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ Vintage Brooks Brothers Multicolored Box Check Tweed Jacket 40 Long. Made in USA.

    ALSO, I wanted to give a shout out to easye for a good shoe trade - a pair of Alden black tassel loafers that I traded three emblematic belts for over on the AAAC Trad Forum that turned out to be too narrow for me in exchange for a pair of Church's bluchers of his that I've been eyeing since his second or third post on this thread.
