Dudes I'm so excited! Went on a thrift tour today with the mandate of assembling 2 kids' summer wardrobes (motherEFFers keep growing) and I ran into a 1980s American Tourister slimline briefcase. New with tags (damn there's like 9 tags to lop off). Goodwill By The Pound $1.46. My work mobile office has been a medium Saddleback briefcase the last 6 years and it's barely broken in. But I really like this. Will be testing/using for awhile, this thing is slimmer lighter and easier on the eyes.

Fits laptop and the other crap I need. Would love advice/anecdotes from others here who have tried this. Love the construction, they definitely don't make 'em like this anymore, unless you pay a lot more but the stitching and suede interior...mmmm fresh leather smell and it's all so tight. And although computer is bulky and in today's work you need to lug it everywhere so employer can stalk you at home (OK, I work from home 2 to 3 days a week, so work-provisioned, work-owned laptop is not only the price of doing business it's a privilege to carry), the reality that there's less paper and other stuff that the case might have needed back in the '80s isn't part of our work life anymore....everything my 2016 office needs fits and the case closes easily

This 'Louis Vuittons' tie is made of a very nice quality silk. It is tipped in a simple fabric, embroidered with the LV logo. BUT it doesn't have the LV symbol woven into the tail, nor does the content tag say where it was made, just 100% silk Hand Made. There is no other tag or other information.

fake, sorry love!

I found a vintage Burmel Italy hand rolled silk PS today in my By The Pound. Hadn't heard of this marque before. Can anyone school me on it?

Sounds about right. My guess is late 70's based on the label and styling.

fodder from an interesting one-stopper:





oxxford is officially one of my very favorite kops.

i love how solid the armscyes feel, so unique among tailored jackets.

i may keep this.



sans structure corneliani

flax blend for saks




the charvet is flat-out amazing. this is the first kiton i've copped believe it or not i've passed on a few cause they're usually hideous.


also: i was gonna post the obligatory finger-blasting of the 6-fold but i just don't have the heart.

i even posed it with "the shocker" lol. oh well. you can use your imaginations.

No clue on the value. It's really hard to write search terms for that kind of pants because 'navy' tends to turn
