Recently read that's physically impossible (I have horrible allergies, I get four shots at a time once a month and am on sudafed and Zyrtec 24-7...and half the year, inhaled steroids). People who are "allergic" to some fibers, the theory goes, are sensitive to the gauge of the fibers and it is a physical response that make it feel like their skin's crawling. You could technically be allergic to alpacas the animals (ie have a sneeze fest at an alpaca farm) but supposedly,...
"Hey, a Band of Outsiders French maid outfit for $2.98. Wanna try it on?" Spoo, Wes: I know what you're saying. I used to totally agree having those people (kids, wife etc) with you (or once, my elderly mom waiting in the car, talking on the cell phone) made thrifting suck. Wasn't resentful, just...wished I had more time to "do it right." Last half-year or year I'm kinda coming around to the point of view that quick 15-minute hitters with family in tow -- we were out on...
So, I have this DB SC. I have had it for months and months, I like it, I love it, it's deep purple herringbone baby alpaca, perfect color and softness, from a New Haven men's store (it ain't Brioni or Zegna for you label whores, hahahahahaha). It's un-resellable. This jacket has some style problems. 2 sizes 2 big, gotta get sleeves taken up an inch or inch and a half (no faking this) and certainly if I want to wear as a blazer I need chrome or brass buttons. Also --...
I'm so old, I think this is funny! HAH(You little douches, I remember when the only browsers we had were Mosaic and Netscape. AND WE LIKED IT!)
Love seeing us as the #1 thread on the home page stats, ha! institches posts more in a month than I have in 2 years.... Luck's been a lady this week...today's finds, all in my size. Bally loafers I have been seeking for a year...I find them occasionally, but always too big. Both fit me. Somewhat used but Topy'd and polished up niiiiice: And if it isn't a Ferragamo gray/blue/white herringbone silk/linen/wool SC. I don't know if this is really something I'll keep but...
Hahahahahahah. It's like, I wear cufflinks once a damn month but possess 50 pairs. I had to pack them for my trade show in New Orleans -- only French Cuff dress shirts -- to force myself to wear them back-to-back-to-back days otherwise I'd pass up an opportunity to wear them in their proper/appropriate environment, interviewing executives who were mostly wearing them too. WTF is wrong with me? That probably explains why I never have awesome fit pics, because I am a...
Seriously -- Loro Piana tweed? Have you guys seen this before?
This shoe discussion is interesting. I have pairs that are slightly too wide but wearing thicker cotton dress socks does the trick most of the time. Some of the narrower shoes I can only wear thin dress socks.......I couldn't bear giving up some of the tremendous looking shoes I have found.However...I am just about to give up on some Florsheim Kenmoors I bought brand new (outlet) and topy'd for hard service because they give me blisters on the knuckles of my big...
Gone all last week to N'Awlins, combo business & R&R. Ducked into a bunch o great menswear stores on Magazine St., in Lower Garden District, none cooler than Aiden Gill.At the Magazine St. Antiques Mall, this case seemed like it had about 500 sets of cufflinks and another 100 sets of vintage studs...that's an exaggeration, there were a lot, though, tray after tray...the ones I wanted were $50-$80 so I left them, thrifty gent that I am....but just the sight of it made me...
Guys, pat Robertson says your thrift store find might be possessed. So that dybbuk box shit might be for realz (sorry if someone already posted this) http://www.salon.com/2013/02/26/pat_robertson_there_could_be_demons_attached_to_your_thrift_store_finds/
