cordovan is a color. the color of rich, rich burgundy.

 

split means that it's not full grain, they literally plane sheets of leather off of a super thick hunk of hide (sort of similar to plywood) and then surface it. why didn't you show the face of the leather you're asking about?

 

also:

15 hr day today, 10 more tomorrow; if I did my math correctly, and things keep going the way they are, I should have enough to pay for fixing my car with my first paycheck.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




EDIT: selvedge is brown and red

 

The styling looks really old like vintage. Anymore tags on there?

"Made in Japan" it says. Totally legit. "Nippon Made" actually.

Just a heads up and a question:

 

Any of you ps4 guys downloaded the Star Wars Battlefront open beta? It's pretty fun. 40 man multiplayer on Hoth is Kreygasm.

The ties are all for a friend who just likes designer stuff and doesn't care about quality much. Also, for $6 a suit, I've been doing alright selling the Lauren stuff on eBay for around $50 and netting a reasonable profit for not too much work. Probably from people who just like Lauren, but they never seem to sit too long before I sell them on eBay. I will not dispute that most of these are not quality garments, but they do sell and that's what I'm mostly interested in when flipping items.

Thanks, @everyone, for the thoughtful condolences via post, PM and text. It means so much to me to have you all "close by" at a time like this, when I live so far from my friends and family. 

 

We are ok. We are trying to stay as busy as possible. That strategy worked about 20% of the time yesterday, but today I'm shooting for 21%.  

 

 

Did go out yesterday, all day, because Holly convinced me it was better than sitting home by myself. I hit 10 stores, well, I went to 10 stores....not sure I really HIT any of them. I mostly just wandered around in a daze, but did bring home a few things to make the trip worth it.

 

Most surprisingly....I finished my rig for the wedding next weekend.

 

When I took off my shoes after I snapped the fit pic the other day, they literally fell apart in my hand (they were just cheapo poly rentals with rubber soles).

 

Saw a single pair of patents yesterday, and damn if they weren't in my exact size. Also found a bow tie, just in case I am not receiving one as a gift from my sister.

 

 

Stanley Blacker, hand made in Italy.

 

 

 

 

More on the rest.... to follow.

@barrelntrigger, only tag is this one:


Size 54 Euro, I guess.

Took a couple other pics last night. I'm going to live with it for a while and see if it works as an overshirt. It's a little big on me (I'm a 38). If anyone's interested, feel free to hit me up via PM. (For future reference, how do I spoiler on my phone?)
