Nice one.

Here's a very cool looking linen field coat made by Lee Baron of Hong Kong for Mr K. Dimensions are like a 38-40R. For less than USD100.

Hmm... also... you folks know the Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren outlets are opening next month in Nusajaya, Johor, right? This will be deadstock from the factory and the retail outlets, I believe.

The shirt factory itself is somewhere in Penang. I found the name and address once, but it was on my old computer that crashed. Does anyone know anything about the shirt factory? can we go there and get dirt-cheap Brooks, PRL, and other high quality shirts?

Oh, it seems the factories belong to the Esquel Group of Hong Kong, one of the biggest shirtmakers in the world. It's in Bayan Lepas somewhere. Esquel has been in Penang since the 70s, and it looks like they don't do any sort of sales at those factories.

Wow, respect. For years I have been trying to dig out intel on BB's secret factory in Malaysia but to no avail.

Ah Loke told me about this factory several times. You see the surplus from this factory at places like Reject Shop.

Kotmj, have you seen Brooks and PRL stuff at Reject Shop? The best I've seen is Hilfiger and Ambercrombie stuff, both brands are also Esquel clients, so I suppose they are from the same factory.

Reject Shop is stuffed full of BB stuff with defaced labels.

The shirts are made of pretty low quality fabrics, much lower than even Acorn's. Not interesting to me.

Vintage pebble grain Florsheim Imperial gunboats for 50 bucks. US9E (wider in the toebox, by the looks of it). Classic looks and at a great price. These things are basically indestructible.

The Filson is a nice find. But it looks more like a duffle than a tote? Pics won't load for me, weird.

Fwaah... Nice looking shoe. Might be getting it, seems like a good color to go with a navy suit.

It's definitely a tote, a duffel would have

a) a rain flap over the main zipper
b ) shorter handles
c) a dimension about 2-3X wider.

I always associate a tote with a light & simple construction so a tote like this (damned rugged) is kinda dissonant with me.
