Thanks for the tip masaccio and shoeluv! I wasn't sure about those, but figured it was worth a flier for $1. Purchased them just to boost up my own tie rotation. At least it was a low cost learning lesson. I did pick up a nice Brooks Brothers tie not long ago from consignment, so good to hear that was a better decision.

First stop in a long time. Howdy to all you guys that I haven't kept up with in a long while.
Synchilla, XL, very minty. (Available...)
Update with real photos:
Baller status? Gettin there.... T&A dressing gown/robe made from shirting of the heavens. My wife does not approve, I am very close to not caring. Haha! (Likely available, though, let's be real...)

First stop LBM 1911, bought 2x linen pocket squares
They had spring/summer out in full force. Store was small, but 2 stories.
Rubinacci, bought an army square and tie
They had this at Rubinacci, just a navy blue bomber, but that lining! They made one custom for a client, then made 4 more while they were at it.
Did not kop, but seriously, seriously considered it, had one that fit me perfectly. Reversible if you want to be all loud about it.
Isaia, retail upstairs. Cool thing about all these flagship stores was they had stuff you just wouldn't find in NM or even a local boutique.
Hermes window, just now seeing those random shoes, don't know how that tied in.
This was from the bespoke room at Brioni. 3 floors, maybe 10ksqft. Brioni only has 3x bespoke tailors, two of them are here, one in NYC. One has been a tailor 45 years for Brioni, my guide told me he can practically size you by looking at you. Besides their own exclusive fabrics, they have Scabal and Dormeuil. My guide was gracious and showed me everything, was a great experience.
Zilli was absolutely nuts. Leather jackets for 30k euro. No price on these shoes, but the polo shirt in the ad in the upper left was on the shelf for 990Euro. A fucking polo shirt.
Right after we walked in, a group of umm... boldly dressed people stormed in, pulled some stuff off the racks, bought it and left. Was really odd.
Not shown, the inconsiderate RR owners blocking traffic while they casually piled in.
Versace Home store.
Kopped these linen shirts from a local tailor next door to my hotel. Couldn't get decent pics, bottom one is a deep denim blue, the top is a light blue with a subtle pattern. Collar roll is the bomb.
Milan is a menswear mecca, the staff at every store was attentive and friendly. The wife was burned out before I finished, and honestly, since I wasn't going to drop serious coin, even I got a little burned out myself. I could easily see how, if I had the means, I wouldn't want to shop anywhere else, I'd make a pilgrimage to this neighborhood, stay at the Oriental, get a years worth of clothes, and donate last year's clothes to a GW near you.
Don't know how my post got all out of whack, but essentially above is my quick recap of a shopping day in Milan. There is no other place in the world with this concentration of stores. The Armani store was an entire city block. There may be other cities that have most of these stores, but not all in a couple city blocks.post #34631 of 543964/18/16 at 2:52pm
Had over 600 posts to catch up on today. Been MIA because I was moving into a new house. Down payment funded exclusively with thrift funds. More pics later once things are set up, but this place rules. Late 50s MCM with tuckunder garage and a backyard that rivals Eden. So yeah, I kinda thrifted (part of) a house.
This is the only pic I have right now.post #34632 of 543964/18/16 at 3:14pmpost #34633 of 543964/18/16 at 3:17pmpost #34634 of 543964/18/16 at 3:19pmpost #34635 of 543964/18/16 at 3:41pm
