Also I couldn't find the watch either. A trip to the same store is planned every day this week though.


Don't waste your time waiting for that watch to hit the floor, just go back to the production area and check the wrists of the workers.

Woho!

Yeah,but that eye candy though .hottest women ever.

Started in the sport coats, and after seeing this handiwork, I knew I was in for a special day:

 

 

Then on to the ties, where the real madness began. I stumbled upon someone's incredible tie collection. 72 ties total, 64 7-folds, 4 grenadines, and one absurd day. Took a good bit of  work to identify most of these since only some had labels, and some still remain unidentified (any help would be greatly appreciated!):


 

22 Kitons (4 with the label, but the rest were identified by other features (7 fold, content tag, shape, etc.))

Nice find on the Oxxford cashmere Koala T!

I'm pretty sure it came from Oxxford that way, but I wish I could definitely confirm the collar was real fir. I know nothing about fir.
Maybe your right I think I'm just shocked how bold it is I think. I'm sure someone out there will love it. I would have bought it. If the smoke test was nit helpful try soaking some of the fibers in vinager overnight. The vinager will make natural animal fibers get mushy cause it will eat the calcium if it's synthetic fibers it wont.

I'm not a fancy beer person, at all.

 

It's what my father drinks, what his father drank, it was my first beer, it is my go to beer.

Could not care less if Budweiser is shit, cheap, not crafty, etc.

Just my preference.

Shoutout to @capnwes for this awesome vintage tweed coat for Little O!

A few minor brags and one croc/gator authenticity check. 

 

ALL Available 

 

First, the croc/gator.   These are Stuart McGuire.   I have found and sold several of these.  And I know the company at times made all sort of exotics such as Crocodile/Alligator, Ostrich, reptiles, and I even found a pair of Camel skin.   

 

But, I'm not sure about these.  They look pretty good, but I can't figure out what is making me question them. 

 

 

 

 

 

A few other finds: 

 

NEW Brooks Brothers Country Club Egyptian Cotton made in Italy  Large 

 

 

 

 

 

Very recent 100% Cashmere Hickey Freeman SC in a gorgeous Rust Brown Dual Vents  46L  

 

 

 

Cool Harley Davidson shirt  (sorry for the lousy pics).  Great embroidered Willie G. Skull logos

 

 

 

 

 

This next one was a thrift purchase but I got it from a guy on AAAC quite a while ago.  

 

NWT Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Egyptian Cotton Woven in Italy XXL 

 

Interesting Seahorse pattern. 

 

 

 

 

 

NEW Executive Imperials Old School style heavy Longwing Gunboats  8 EEE
