    Hmmm, sorry dude, I'm not sure but I'll update you as soon as I find out.

    Real. Just old like hella old.

    Man, it's weird to see you hauling our "regular" labels stuff and not the super high end/high fashion stuff. [​IMG] I'm guessing these are actual thrift hauls like they are from a thrift store? [​IMG]

    Really haven't found much clothing-wise to brag about in these parts, but good to see everyone else is having success.

    But, non-clothing brag alert:

    The Wifey and I had been trying to find a table for our back patio for quite some time, but everything we found that we liked was $500+. So last week, on her Summer break from teaching, my better half constructed this:

    [​IMG]

    Total cost: $93 in lumber

    Had some friends over, so a summertime thrift fit was in order:

    Jacket: Vintage Bleeding Indian Madras (thrift)

    Shirt: J Crew Linen (thrift)

    Square: Non Name Silk (thrift)

    Pants: Zegna (thrift)

    Shoes: Alden (thrift)

    Absolutely brilliant... Playboy's articles went downhill with the women inside, some time in the 1960s...

    Need some cleaning up (already reno'd the uppers, the soles need some edge trim clean up and the heels could use a refresh, but for half price, time to roll the dice).

    Really depending on the condition and the price. But for the most part, I would
    Cool piece but just a bit over priced.

    So it is my turn with the is it really old/or is it fake/or is it both? Anyone have an opinion on the PRL shirt? It is marked Made in USA and the cloth is a very substantial pique. I am split between really old and a really old fake. Would any current counterfeiters bother to put "Made in USA" on the label? It only cost a quarter so no feelings will be hurt :D
    Also pictured are some Made in USA Dockers buckle back cramertons, Oliver Peoples Ltd Edt sunglasses and Warby Parker frames. I overpaid on the WP's but thought they were cool.

    Mobile suit! I might need one of those.

    Meanwhile, I think this label is 100% legit.
