Yeah, baby:
I purchased this before Christmas, but my wife was right - I've got lots of hairbrushes so I don't need any more. Top quality Whitehouse Cox English-made leather case in a brown lizard print with green suede lining, containing two two-tone wooden hairbrushes with what look like natural bristles. Comes complete with Whitehouse Cox gift box. I can see no signs of use, the leather case has what I'd class as shop wear, but otherwise in immaculate condition. This would...
With all the conditions you've imposed, you're asking me to make your decision for you. I'm going to ignore them, and try and concentrate on what shoes I'd have if I only had a choice of four. In terms of manufacturers, I like EG and Lobb (who doesn't), but they don't win my vote for VFM. Trickers don't wear well, and Church's are overpriced at retail. I seem to get on well with C&J so I'm using their benchgrade models as examples. I wear black lace-up shoes to the...

Made by Cheaney IIRC - certainly a very solid, good quality shoe that (if you pick the right model) can have a bit of flair to it. $280 sounds a fair price, I'd not pay much more than that.
Old Hong Kong bespoke suit, made from Scabal Luxxor "a Super 130's quality with cashmere and vicuna" and with an impressive level of handwork. Three blue OCBDs (each a slightly different fabric) by some random Italian maker. And one amazing Cantarelli suit with loads of handwork, before I noticed the 3" ragged gash in the trousers...
I found this whilst out today and thought it was too good not to pass on. J Keydge unlined / unstructured 'slack' jacket in navy linen. Flapped patch pockets, 2/3 roll, two functioning cuff buttons. Single vent, two interior pockets. Marked as a Euro 50 / US 40, I had stated it fits true to size but having measured, it probably fits large for the size, but it's designed to be quite slouchy so I can understand why. I'll also caveat that it's a bugger to measure - because...
Unworn Lobb City II for €300
