Recently changed jobs, when from corporate restaurant management to sous chef at a private country club, in desperate need of knives so if anyone for some reason comes across some good Japanese steel hit me up for some trades or proxy or both. Gracias

No problem. Though I'm sure it'd only take you about 30 attempts.

Love this! I've been trying to research this brand but I'm just not coming up with a lot. I found a piece a few days ago that was as wacky as this one, in your face garish, which is not usually what I expect from St. John. I think these fun pieces might have been during the time from 04-08 (?) when Richard Cohen (formerly an Ermenegildo Zegna CEO) was making the brand appeal to a younger audience and failing.... Not sure.

Nope. Hidden treasure. Although, I just found out my friend's mom is one of the head honchos at PROP. She said "next time you stop in, find me and I'll introduce you to some people and show you around the backstock area." My heart started racing like only a thrifter's could.

Congrats Spoo, although I've got to say I'm amazed you haven't been doing it full time already.

Switching topic completely, I see the US guys picking up Charles Tyrwhitt a lot in this thread, I'll pick the shirts to make a couple of pounds, but they are pretty cheap new, about the same as TM Lewin and a few steps below PRL for example, same with the suits and casual wear. The ties aren't bad, especially if you cherry pick.

It's something us UK guys might pick up, because of the slim pickings here, but it always looks incongruous in a sea of Kiton, Brioni and Tom Ford.

@SpooPoker, Congrats on the big change! Livin' the dream!

Hit me up if you do and I'll show ya around. Wouldn't plan on finding much, though. Minnetonka area has been plain awful. They hired people to pick the good stuff for their e-commerce website. Hardly anything ever makes it to the floor these days. It sucks....

woke up and had the #1 post on styleforum. Thank you guys!

Bit of an ordinary day today, just a few BB items and a rather nice Pal Zileri wool/linen suit for summer.

I did find this, which I picked up on the off-chance. Is this the good stuff?
