Quick snap thrift fit & shout out thank you!
Not great lighting, sorry my location today is an old place and I likely won't be out of here soon...

What about a handwritten note on a thrifted Kiton tie that will then be hung in the NY shop.

Now that would be a cool story.

Bro, don't give away the coochie so easily. You gotta make the old man work for it!

Hi thrift buddy.. (Click to show)
I like all kinds of stuff. My sizes are in my info. Good coffee/a bottle of some kind of cool booze is a nice fallback if I prove hard to shop for.

Fave brands are RRL, LVC, Black Fleece, Pendleton. Should give you a sense of my style. OBV those are kind of hard to find so anything that looks like that is awesome.

Maybe a dope wallet? Nice dress pants in a staple color that isn't navy? Wearable/not too wild nice ties? I dunno. I have too many sweaters so maybe no sweaters.

Because of your profile picture, I picture you dressed as young Verne, point at himself as if he just peed his pants. Sorry, just a random thought.

If we're going this route

Dear Secret Santa, (Click to show)

I have a rather odd body shape where most nothing fits off the rack, thus, limiting me to ties/shoe trades.

I'm always down for quality ties. Brands I prefer are Kiton, Brioni, Canali, RLPL, the usual (not too wide as I'm not too tall (but I cannot be picky)).

Rather conservative patters are preferred but not limited to, neats, stripes, and solids. 

 

Always looking for shoes as well, US size 7/7.5. Sneakers/dress/formal are all welcome.

 

Thanks, man.

DEAR SANTA.




PLEASE TAKE MAINY BACK TO KANSAS SO HE STOPS PICKING UP ALL THE KITON FOR 5.49 IN SAN FRANCISCO.

Even bigger Pop. These awful washed out pictures don't do this justice, but these are probably the most well made pants I have handled. Looks to be linen. Olive green. Single forward pleat.

hella moire on those Arnys... is that with the Nikon? 

 

seems to be an issue on this thread lately, maybe certain models of camera are prone - it's a sensor thing afaik. can happen with my pentax too.

 

no shade tho. Lardini is a great "adult" plaid. just a hint of fu.

Will check on Wed. If they have them, you're about to be blessed. 

 

 

 

SWEET! Thanks, dude. Let me know what you find.
