They had another one, I will try and go back tomorrow and get that for you, or Birdman.
Obviously I get to a few Maxxes so will keep an eye out.
Can't decide if this one is too small for me either but will let you know if I don't keep it.

They also had a slightly different one, with a multi-coloured polo logo and POLO stitched in red over the back (this one has a Ralph Lauren signature), this also had Japanese labels but don't think it had actual shop tags.
LMK if you want this picked up.

Still had the labels on and looks like it has come from Japan, quite a journey it's been on.

All recent Ralph online was from Japanese department stores. Bought a load of shirts that had to go back as the sizing was weird, Mediums were huge, Smalls fit tiny, all had the Japanese store tags on which roughly translated to 50% off. Clearly made for Japan as the styles were unique

In my mind's eye these things on the right can only be worn by an Italian student with a straw trilby, 3/4 length trousers and a too-tight leather choker with a seashell on it

Can you easily tell which bits are Japanese? The fit on their sizing is loads better for me, so would be interested in finding some pieces.

Why do people love TK MAXX so much? I can't stand the place yet it is still more satisfying than getting a box delivered to your door only to be disappointed by quality/price/customer service issues.

Laughing out loud at that visual

I like to style them like military inspired sneakers with a twist instead of fashion sneakers

I'm not sure anyone does TBH (except me).
Some very good deals is an obvious answer, Ralph Lauren items are around half the price they are in RL outlets. Random things like Otterbox USB-C to lightning cables which are £25 on Amazon for £8, Sperry Topsiders for £40 etc. Most things they do are pretty keenly priced.

Even at their best about 80-90% of the stock is junk and if you don't enjoy shopping it is probably enough to put you off bothering. I like shopping so it's ideal for me, if it had less of a jumble sale vibe you'd never get a bargain as everyone would go there.

For me the number one reason I like TK Maxx is because you never know what might turn up there, even in small provincial branches they can get amazing stock, few and far between obviously which is what puts most people off. But it is the only shop where there's always a chance (no matter how small) you can find something interesting that there is zero chance of any other local shop stocking.
Some of the things I've picked up/seen; Nike Haze dunks, decent range of Garrett Leight sunglasses (£40!), Gucci shades, Cutler and Gross shades etc (it's very good for sunglasses), Bass Weejun loafers from colab with a Japanese store (not to mention Bass Weejuns for far less that they ever are in the sale), Suicoke sandals, endless decent RL, Vilbrequin trunks, Orelebar Brown trunks and shirts, James Perse, Pecksniff's candles and soaps etc for very little, Troika pens, Moleskine notebooks etc.
Also things like Mida tees which I've only ever seen in the Maxx but are amazing quality for £13.
