cross post from thrift store bragging thread... Today, a rare denim find: APC New Standards in size 30 that appear to have been soaked only once and worn none at all...for $12 and change. I take 30 when I'm in shape and a 31 when I'm not (right now I'm not) so I will probably wear these when I drop my winter fat, or (if I stay fat) I may try to trade them.

Question about Helmut Lang denim: Is some helmut lang made in Italy, some in USA? If so, is there a difference in quality? Thx

But you rarely see them made that way (I can only think of a handful of exceptions: examples being leathersoul's...
Beautiful churches. Sorry, but those hartt's aren't shell cordovan.

Pebble grain calf can look great on longwings, particularly brown longwings. They tend to patina in interesting ways.
That's a nice looking coat.
