    Additional PSA - Ralph Lauren has a bunch of stuff at 55% off - and coupon code RETAILMENOT25 is still working, so sale items are 34% of retail.

    I believe it's in store only.

    Chicago city guys seems to have it on lock - most of these come from the suburbs. Everything except the WG is available for trade.

    Deadstock RRL - waxed cotton, snap fly, cotton/nylon blend. I believe these are about 10 years old - any RRL heads care to chime in?

    It's been so dry around here. Hit my entire circuit the last two days and all I got was a NWT Lilly Pulitzer men's linen button down and this:

    A&F (62-68 based on union tag) orange tweed sport coat. 38. Fully canvassed. Horn buttons. Partially lined. Hooked vent.

    Hey guys, it's winter so this might be hard, but if anyone finds a nice warm as hell duffle coat in a size 38 and is willing to proxy then please let me know. I'm looking for a warm coat and I'm a little enamored with duffles right now.

    At the same time, I'm doing a ridiculous amount of layering right now so I'm almost considering just getting whatever fits as long as it looks good and is warm as fak.

    I've been hoping to find one myself, but I've found plenty of other cool things and not one of those in anywhere near my size yet!

    Thanks in advance.

    -----------------------------

    Also, big ups to @Fueco for being a stand up guy and getting a laugh out of my stupidity.
    I can't wait to get those bow ties as well :)
    ------------------------------
    Also ups to @thefastlife for hooking me up with a pair of jeans. Can't wait to get them.
    ------------------------------
    And ups to @Randomore for the awesome trade. Did you get my end of the deal today? I hope they fit!

    The Brioni is real, just older, and none of those are grenadine.

    I wasn't sure. How about giving me a better idea how you can tell. I looked at a bunch of pictures and I'm still unsure.

    GMMcl: Great haul!



    That is awesome!! :slayer:

    Things are picking up at the thrifts here. Not in the way of men's clothing though.


    Decided to sleep in this morning and traffic. Bad move. Missed out on someone's mid-late 80's new wave record collection by like an hour. :fu: 200+ near mint new wave LPs and 20+ singles. By the time I got to the records there were two guys with 50-110 LP stacks next to them. Gah. I picked up some scraps.....

    Yeah, I'd like to know the difference between grenadine and knit as well. I know grenadine's are woven and are more expensive to make, but I have a hard time spotting the difference.

    Edit: Do grenadine's always have a stripe?

    My apologies if that came off a bit snarky... The ties posted are silk knit, and grenadine is a weave. This doesn't help, I know. See these rundowns for a bit more intel-
