Thanks, bro. My shearling game is weak. I mean it's vintage Macy's. The fur feels pretty smooth. I wasn't sure because the texture was a bit too consistent.

Ugh!

One of my metal charles tyrwhitt collar tags came out in the wash, got lodged in the machine and acted as a knife that cut two of my shirts. Easy come, easy go I suppose.
I can only laugh when I think how heart broken I would have been if I paid retail for them.

Wait.... you.... machine wash your dress shirts?

 

I can see if they're like J.crews or etc, but you don't machine wash like Zegna / Brioni / etc do you?

I finally found Shell Cordovan.  Brooks Brothers Penny Loafers, #8 black 06602, size 9.5D -  Available. I think they need a little care from someone with the know-how, but don't need to be re-soled.

Fueco & Nataku, is this what I'm looking for? Left because of stains but first time seeing this label.

I machine wash all my shirts. I don't dry them (I let them hang), but yeah. Dry cleaning fries shirts. They have to be cleaned too often.

Hey guys, have a question for y'all.

A very high end men's retailer has a sweater I want listed at $0 on their website. When I check out with the sweater, it's still $0.

Anybody have experience with this?

Buy it and wait for them to cancel. If they don't, $$$ profit

Buy it, then share the love. (i.e. the URL)

My mom makes miniature quilts - has for a couple decades now.  All hand-made, usually with vintage material, hand-quilted etc.  She used to teach and write books but has been out of that game for a while.  Maybe I'll see if she wants to hock some on eBay.

I found an empty tube of Chapstik in the dryer tonight...and all my clothes have smears on them that appear permanent.  Hoodies and t-shirts etc, so not the end of the world, but I feels yr pain.

Hah!  I'm pretty sure it's got like a half-dozen staple navy BB blazers with brass buttons and Loro fabric, because I know I have a bunch and they're not in with my other stuff.  Blazers, some suits, some outerwear, some Ferrari jackets - basically stuff I know I have but ain't seen it in a while.

Yes.  Site may honor it, probably won't, but you gotta check out to find out.
