Vintage Girard-Perregaux manual. Simple, classic, easy to read, flies under the radar.
I've got many fountain pens, but am always on the lookout for more. Looking for unique and interesting ones available at relatively affordable prices ($0-$250). If you have some languishing in the closet unloved, send them my way. NOT interested in Montblanc marble gold things valued in the $X000's. These will be pens I USE on a daily basis. Love Sailor, Pilot, older Parker, Cross, etc. Quiet, subdued, fun, or interesting. Let me know! For shipping purposes,...
I'm not dead (haha).I just don't have time to post/read the forum much anymore.'IRL is taking up much more of my time these days... which (if I do say so myself) isn't a bad thing.
SOLD 6/6/13. THANKS. CONUS shipping/paypal included. Calvin Klein Collection lawyer's briefcase. Made in Italy from black box calf and palladium hardware. Beautiful item, built like a tank and will last forever. Retail was $1700. Large format, measures about 16X14. GREAT bag for professional use or travel. In excellent shape; I've barely used it. BUT, please note that all box calf shows marks, and so there are a few surface marks. Comes with Dustbag NOTE: the...
Spring/Summer 2011 Calvin Klein Collection Keepall Duffle. I bought it for myself but have lots of other bags. It's too nice just to sit in my closet unused. Exterior: Dove Gray Nylon/leather Interior: Gray fabric with interior zipper pocket and two patch pockets on opposite side. Size: Basically same size as a Keepall 50 (50cm). About 20X12X10. Details: Made in Italy, New with Tags and dustbag. Removable shoulder strap included. Retail price on tag: $955. PRICE:...
Spring! Given various requests up above one ought to link to (my) former thread of spring recs. Anyway, in my neighborhood some "april showers" today so need something green that will pair with the humidity... hence Chanel no. 19 EdT (vintage). Reformulated is wearable, but don't forget that the EdP is NOT just a more concentrated EdT... but instead an entirely different fragrance. I recommend an EdC, EdT, or Parfum... and the more vintage the better. Search for...
^Agreed. There was a FW season of Lagerfeld Gallery back in 2004 (IIRC) that had all these great, large palladium zippers everywhere. It was very neat... Lagerfeld but with a twist. Beyond that (when Lagerfeld himself got skinny), you are right that basically its All Dior, All the Time. I've always found it slightly odd that Lagerfeld was such an uninspired menswear designer, given that his work at Chanel (and the brand DNA itself) was basically taking hints from...
Recap Roundup: All the Fashion That’s Fit to Wear In case you missed some of the fashion from Florence over the past several weeks, here’s a quick recap with links of the interviews and coverage for some of what you’ll be seeing on the street and in the stores later this year. Join the discussion! Barena: Great fabrics, unique colors, and a great silhouette for casual, relaxed Venetian menswear. One of my favorites of the season. Florentino: Etro meets Junya at a much...
^You are welcome! It was a pleasure to review the items and talk to Ohba-san. Unfortunately, they also need some revision on their website, as it doesn't do the items justice, but it's got a lot more pictures and such. With their quality, history, and network of artisans, I definitely think that they could grow and become an excellent go-to brand that is at the top level without attracting too much attention. There will be several more like this coming in the next few...
Product Review: OHBA A4 Business Bag Japan isn't just known for its unique, quirky streetwear, but also for a long history of artisanal tailors, shoemakers, and leather craftsmen. One of the best of these is the brand OHBA, a leather maker with a long history in Japan, who has recently branched out into international distribution. I've often viewed OHBA in Japan at stores like Isetan and Mitsukoshi, but I had a chance to speak with designer and CEO Kozo Ohba in...
