Found a pair of Dr. Martens men's boots, brown, basically new, size 13 for hubby. $18! He's never tried brown. He's been more of a 'black goes with everything' kind of guy.

I can tell those are 85's by the cracking on the black part at the ankle. Had a pair about 10 years ago and they were the same. I paid 100 for them back then and that was a damn good deal. I believe they've skyrocketed a bit since then...

Quick non-jompsoey story

 

So I got hospitalized last night. Extremely high blood pressure, irregular heart beat, arrhythmia etc... My father passed (when I was 15), as did his, of heart disease, so in my family, it's not fuck around time if shit's going on. There from like 10-345 or something, all tests done, I'm fine, good to go, shot me up with some meds and that's that. I get home and realize that I'm the dumbest fucker ever. I realized earlier that day @silverwarebandit posted a picture of a Loro Piana leather jacket. Probably the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Now, I  was diagnosed by a "doctor" with a bunch of factors that aren't helping, i.e. sleep schedule that makes @SpooPoker look lazy, work like a motherfucker, poor diet etc.. so I was told to get regular and take better care and stuff.... When really I just need to not see Loro Piana Deer Leather Jackets that were made of the 7th fucking day of creation...no, he was not fucking resting.... So what do I do? I fucking got up at 9 after hospitalization and getting home at like 4ish this morning, and I hit some spots because that fucking Loro Piana Leather isn't going to find itself....I didn't find it....Here's what I did find though.

 

(note: none of that was bullshit, i mean obviously the onset by the LP but that other stuff was dead serious, just kinda making light of somethin kinda serious)

 

 

Kolte Couture, Michelson of London 100% Wool, Zegna, Tiffany & Co, Bedford Silk of England (love English silk, this may stay with me), Dunhill, Brooks Makers, NWT's Brooks, Nicky for Bergodorf, RLPL, Zegna, Sills by (I believe) Holiday and Brown, NWT's Brooks

 

 

 

Prada velvet heels with the sickest woven metal heels I've seen, had to cop (supersize for detail, they're sick)

 

 Brioni x2

 T&A Bespoke Shirt in a weird beige gray, and a Granfranco Gerre NWT's

 

RRL Pearl Snap Button Western x2, black military shit NWT's

 

Vtg Made in US Orvis Safari belted shacket

 

 

Dior Homme Wool Sweater, ribbed arms (Hedi Slimane's very last collection)

 

 

 

Jil Sander wimminz long cotton buttoned knit made in Italy

 

T by Alexander Wang wimminz cotton bomber

 

 

Brioni x2 and Incotex Inco Chino flat front navy cotton (New pants by Brioni, not as easy to spot now, sucks)

 

Brown ones 100% wool, navy flat front Super 150s

 

Not LP, nice though. Perforated leather Jacket by Zegna.

 

 

Something about nearly brand new Brooks blazers that are designed well that I just like...so I bought them.

 

 

 

Kinda broke my rule here....but fuck it. Smoked MOP, 2 button, fairly new condition...I fucks with it.

 

 

Can almost guess without goin further...

 

 

 

 

Lastly, kinda broke another rule. Almost never AC unless like new and Italy....well this one is like new and 7% cashmere suit, so fuck it.

 

 

No LP.

Did someone say Jordan?

Had these years back, all deadstock. 

The shoes below are the LP, Brioni, Zilli, 1000% Cashmere of the sneaker game.

It was awesome to have all of them at once, to stare at them knowing they haven't been touched in many many years, but, I felt selfish and had to move them to someone that could really appreciate them.

They all went to one collector in Chicago.

 

Enjoy. 

 

 

1994

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2001 Royal Blue

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the mother of them all, from 1985, with original everything. Peep the unmolested hang tag.

Sorry to hear about your heart.  Nasty bad cholesterol runs in my mom's side of the family, and at 45, my doctor started threatening me with meds if my cholesterol level didn't start improving. Also was pre-diabetic.

 

I began walking 4 miles/10K steps a day. I have a treadmill for when I can't get outside. My cholesterol is excellent now and I'm not pre-diabetic anymore. I also lost some weight.  So there might be something relatively easy you can do. If you have long-QT syndrome, though, get a pacemaker. Get one now.

Glad you are doing okay, dude. Like you said, that heart disease shit doesn't fuck around, speaking as a descendant of a male line with bad tickers.

 

Love that Hedi Dior sweater. Love that Orvis safari. And I am sick for Brooks Brothers. It just fits me too well. And that one on the left is the new Italian line label, which fits me to a TEE in a 40R. I love the fabrics they use in this line, love the styling, love everything about it, and mostly it sells for super cheap on the bay. I haven't paid upwards of $40 for any of it, even some NWOT stuff.
