PSA for anyone who: wears Brooks Brothers, size M/L traditional/original fit, and needs a quick (relatively) inexpensive closet overhaul.

26 shirt package in a variety of colors and patterns I can proxy/trade (to a certain extent). My spot check showed most or all in minty condition fresh from the cleaners. Just let me know before 9AM central time tomorrow otherwise they'll probably be gone.

I may be new, but even I can tell a fake Hermes as bad as this:

 

 

This is the one tie I actually did snag though:

 

Are these anything? Trying to improve on my last tweed/blazer find... Are these less dated-looking, realizing I wanted a tweed style jacket/look.

 

I think I prefer the Harry Rosen/Samuelsohn (1st pic) as it fits much better as is. 2nd pic is Hugo Boss Lambswool.

 

 

Snagged these. Kind of rough looking as nobody took care of the leather but they fit me perfectly and I think I can work on the leather conditioning.

I know Thom Browne likes making short inseam suit pants but these things look like shorts!

Okay so here it is.how many would have walked by this lamp.I did.
Super rare.made in italy.they continued making them after Paf Studios stopped for about half the price but the ones everyody wants are the italian made ones.1stdibs has them up for $1k i paid $4.99
They have no switch you simply swipe your hand over the base to turn on off or even dim.amazing lamp.

Not knowing a lot about lighting, I wouldn't have touched that with a 10 foot pole.  But you're a 6 foot Pole who knows his lighting.  Hahaha!  

 

On the subject, I had a couple lamps like 10 years ago I bought from DWR and would love to find them again.  They were red triangular bases (but also made in black and white base I believe), with white shades, and the maker was a guy's name, not a company name...the original tag had a picture of the dude.  Anyone have any clue as to who this was?  I've been wracking my brain and Googling but no luck.

 

EDIT:  Miraculously, I took a pic in 2006 and somehow still have it - look familiar to anyone?

 

EDIT 2: came to me this morning - George Kovacs (P050 60 Degree lamp)...now the hunt begins.

Now that I found the pic I'm gonna, but they haven't carried the brand in like 8 yrs so I'm not hopeful. BTW the joke was just meant to be a little pun - no anti- anything intended. smile.gif

Just got back from a successful Craigslist thrift-level trade at an In-N-Out parking lot for these things.

 

Thanks to @SpooPoker for the authenticity assist!
