for last year the best item i bought hands down was actually a few things:
rlpl drake navy pinstripe db suit.
this was the bomb. superlative suit. i just adored it. unfortunately i had no reason for suits and also i am not a 42R anymore. so i sold it.
rlpl flannel wool dark charcoal chalkstripe pants w sideadjusters (size 48 /32 slim)
love this pants. most decadent pant i ever received. i bought it a size smaller just hoping to some day fit into it (because i didnt want to wear this fat) so i chanced buying a size 32. now it fits me like a model. i will have to tailor it one day (hem) so i can wear it to somewhere
A couple of great Spano suits from Whusurdadi, a great tweed Flusser SC from Tweedydon, an Isaia suit I wore today from FStyles, a MF shirt from NDW that I am wearing into the ground and lots of great ties...
RLPL / st. Andrews jackets from dr. No and bbhewee JL Luffields - sorry for forgetting who sold this to me but my favorite sf shoe purchase Hermes cufflinks - I think these were from onix Loro Piana cashmere s/s car coat from the inimitable hammer 07
