Anyone want a small or large from Bills Khakis while I'm here?

I know right? Pants always seem like a pain in the ass, but lately I've been going pretty smooth with em. I'm using just a piece of big white paper on the floor with 3 softboxes setup around it, and my pants photos are coming out pretty professional looking:

 

 

They actually go pretty fast if they're flawless. I think the measuring actually takes longer than photographing. :fonz:

Just a few random ties lately, the last sputterings of a tapped-out city. Come, listen. Press your ear to the concrete. Is this legit?, it seems to ask with its dying breath.

DO NOT DISAPPOINT MY DYING CITY!

I thought only the G-Two's were made in India, and the rest still made in the UK...  Has that changed?

The pairs I've seen that have the red insole with the raised G stamp, like the loafers posted, have all been manufactured in India. I'm not familiar with the different collections, though, so if those are G-Twos, then that answers that.

Can anyone tell a date/vintage for this?

I have always fucking hated Robert Guillaume. His greatest role was playing Benson on that old sit com. Well, since I had the same last name, I had to endure years of people telling me, "You don't look like him." :brick:

Couple of weeks ago I found a Cucinelli puffer vest at an outlet, final sale at 87% off retail. I looked the thing over very carefully, figuring that it must be damaged, and somehow didn't see that it was missing 2 buttons (the kind that snap). I emailed Cucinelli and they are shipping another set directly from Italy at no cost to me - talk about taking care of customers icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The way my thrifting goes... Buy a hoodie online, then find another one in a thrift shop for a fraction of the price. Pop for me on a Snap-T Hoody...

Ok thanks for the tips.  None were full suits just jackets, and the size was pretty large I think 48-50L so I passed not knowing if I could sell the items or not.  For future reference since the sizes are pretty large would it be worth it to get them anyway??

 

I did however find a nice canalli tie that made it home with me...

Thanks for the info! Seems like the red insole is specific to the G-Two's so made in India I guess.
