Also take off your hat. You look like a flapper with a collection of David Blaine's spoken word CDs.

That's gotta be the best burn of my life. 3rd Degree. I feel like Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49, or Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman, your choice.

So I finally changed up the scenery and tried to up the picture game and this is the result. Don't mind the feeble paint brush techniques, was trying to take out some distracting background items.

Gracias, amigo. You got it, navy version. Excellent at keeping me warm below the waist and cutting the wind off today since it was blustery as those wonderful weather peeps say.

I'm writing a white paper on it, so can't tell... just kidding. Theory is that items bought new (or NWT from forum) have a longer life span in terms of being "keepers" than used stuff that seemed like a good deal at the time. The B&S chain-kop allows you to try a bunch of things, and thus develop an internal database/lexicon, but in my experience you seldom keep that stuff for very long. Pretty much everything I have at this point was bought new/on sale/as new. Reasons? Obviously for retail, generous returns policies and the ability to try things on mean you won't pull the trigger unless it really works. And if it doesn't, back to the store it goes. Same goes for most sales. NWT stuff has a higher success rate because there are no nagging defects. Stuff that is NWT but being resold is likely due to a simple fit issue or "not my style," but not because the garment is just sucky or poorly designed. Stuff that makes it to the "wow, this is a great deal!" status is stuff that languishes because it's trickled down and probably isn't so much of a keeper in the first place. There are quite a few designers and items that never make it to a FS thread or ebay, because the owners bought them new and are clinging to them for dear life. So I dunno, it's a great boon to have all of this stuff, and there are deals to be found, but a lot of it is sloppy seconds. And it's easy to be spoiled by a returns policy. No hand-wringing while you wait for someone to hopefully buy your items that you took grainy photographs of on an iphone. Service with a smile. YMMV, of course, but I find this theory to hold true in most cases (and through independent comparison with others). B&S is still a great joint though You have to know what you're looking for. And Tonio's fit seemed too cohesive and comfortably-fitting to be things he piecemealed together, so I asked. High degree of comfort apparent in the fit
