Need a authenticity check on this:
The tag says "real leather" but the material under the collar looks like snake skin. I don't see leather anywhere. I assume leather is sometimes used generically to refer to any animal skin?
Agreed, with one caveat. I will fuck with certain pinstripe orphans. If it's recent + great brand + mint + super super cheap + normal size, I'll buy it. I've sold a Zegna orphan for $85. I've gotta recent Belvest orphan that I've been meaning to list and expect to get $50-65 for it. Somebody always buys the "good" orphans. Given that Etro is a "flashy" kind of brand that could attract someone who would wear that thing, under the right circumstances he could do decent...
The Sopranos had a much more vivid rape scene. If Twitter had existed in 2001 I wonder if we would have seen this idiocy, or maybe over the last 15 years the capacity of any given person to be offended has increased exponentially.
It's a combination of your ability to give, how close you are to the bride/groom, and the venue. Regardless of how close someone was to my wife and I at the time, I wouldn't expect them to give us $200 if they could not afford to do so. I would feel bad if they did.
$200 should be considered a nice gift in just about any situation. As far as the venue, it's a factor but I would not give $200-250 to a couple I hardly know just because they picked a nice venue.
After googling, he's supposed to join the cast sometime this season. I was in the kitchen during that part of the show and couldn't see very clearly, but it sure looked like him. Maybe it was a coincidence.
