Lands' End makes some really nice ties.  Always think about picking up for myself.  Maybe it's not a 7 fold, just missing some stitching?

It's a X-fold for sure... maybe 4 or 6 or 7. But definitely folded, etc.

Found at lunch. This exact tie seems to do pretty well on eBay, but I'll probably keep it.




A buyer convinced me to sell him the Borrelli tie on my mannequin (he bought three suits at once), so I replaced it with a Hilditch & Key tie I found just days before.

Gentlemen, can this type of damage be repaired? Reweaving, hopefully?

Theoretically it could, but it would probably be more money than it's worth. Unless it's Vicuna that is.

Brioni tux in my size? Sure! I have no reason to buy a tux but if I have to I have to.

So I was at one of @330CK 's favorite GW's here in WPB, and hear some lady cackling like a hen about the Prada she just found.  I saunter over to see her holding a pair of men's shoes, and watch her pick up another pair as she screams "Gucci"!!!

I grab the closest pair of men's shoes to her, and lo behold, a first for me:

 

Dolce & Gabbana, size 10.  My size, but I can't really picture myself ever wearing them, so available if anyone wants them.  Just got them home so I'll be doing a Renovateur and Creme polish fix to them.

 

 

 

At the checkout line, she's 2 in front of me.  Bragging to the cashier so loud about her Prada and Gucci find that the manager comes over, starts asking all these questions (were these on the rack? were they in the yellow cart?)  Argh........

 

So I just missed out on an Italian trifecta of shoes in my size, but I'm happy with the D&G find.

Lol she played herself. Scored 2 pairs of shoes, but lost out on a 3rd cause of her big mouth... then draws staff attention to them?  :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

 

 

Nice grab on those D&G's tho.

First couple "mystery poster" tubes opened. Each tube had 3-4 posters in each one and they were $1 per tube. Rolled the dice and bought them all. For $1 each, there had to be at least one or two good ones in there. Right?

Taking a little break. 10 more tubes to go.

Also, the NSFW one looks familiar, but I can't see her face. Christie Brinkley?
