Pierre Balmain is current diffusion line but it's actually a lot better than the standard licensing agreement. Many retailers like Neiman Marcus continue to stock both brands (although not simultaneously in markets). PB offers similar style at an upscale although cheaper price point. Its made for secondary markets that flagship Balmain won't enter.

 

If it's recent you'll likely find a market.

Skiis I'm unsure of, but they make Skiing apparel... not sure of what that has to do with sneakers?

Should I get some new suits in New York or jump right in and go to Saville Row in London? 

 

I know its ridiculous to spend any time imagining this, but its fun.   Of the stuff I have, house, car, furnishings, clothing, I always wonder what would make the cut in terms of keeping it? Obviously family photos and special sentimental things, but is there really much else.  

 

If I won, it would help the economy.  So, you all should be rooting for me to win!  We couldn't get @capnwes the new grill, but how about $400 Million for the Noble Professor?  (If that bitch Wendy wins the powerball too, I say we send @drlivingston to kill her.)

Lol must be a weird angle, these things are tiny!!

 

Size 40 (us7)

I think this is 2/3 of a three piece suit, no? What's strange is that I would expect the vest and the jacket to match either perfectly or not at all.




So the jacket actually fits me and debating about keeping it. Concerns:

Gorge too low?




Elbow patches?
What's going on with those vent buttons? They look like they could get removed pretty easily by the tailor.



Oxxford for big boys. Marked a size 50T and measures 25" p2p. Available.

There is no way that vest was sold with that jacket.

 

The jacket is cool, but also money in the bank.

 

Don't lose the odd vent buttons, they're cool.

Made two mid morning stops

 

The absolute oldest and ugliest Charvet tie ever and it was NWT's but the lady cut it by mistake but then put it in the bag. The store it's from has been gone for like 15 years or so but this was definitely from the 90s...also a nice Italo Ferretti NWT's tie and an Altea NWt's tie (fodder) and some Thurston English braces

 

At least I got these today...Shoutout to @GMMcL for hooking these beauties up, these are for the personal stash 

Yohji Yamamoto selvedge jeans

 

N&F NWT's Midnight Selvedge (The Weft is nearly black, I wonder what these look like after 8 months or so)

 

Brioni S130s, Current Zegnatex, Zegna

Bought strictly cuz they are RRL

 

Brand new without tags Loro Piana cotton chinos that are not my size which sucks

 

 

This one I'm not positive about but I said fuck it. Fendi Jeans reversible jacket (if you can confirm or deny please inform me, much appreciated, I don't know shit about Fendi)

 

Love this jacket. Zegna hopsack Silk and Cashmere quarter lined blazer in brown rust

 

Canali Exclusive Collection brown check with blue windowpane Pure Cashmere

 

3rd time thrifting and selling this exact suit. PRL Corn Italy gray birdseye

 

Richard James Savile Row flannel pinstripe

 

Current Zegna All Season Twill in gray pinstripe

 

 

Lastly BNWT's navy Gloverall Made in England Wool Duffle Coat I bought at a crazy discount price for myself and then I remembered that I have a Gloverall peacoat already I forgot about and when the fuck am I gonna wear a duffle coat here? So not true thrift but ridiculous price and available if you wear a Medium and live somewhere where this is necessary.

Done.

gorge is a bit low for my taste; but if you're 6'4" or taller, you can rock em easily; low gorge and all.
