I don't have much insight into how to date Brioni ties, sorry.

Well, first you want to send them a few texts with some jokes and compliments. Then maybe casually be around them with other people... and then when you're ready and feeling good, you want to ask them if your pocket square smells like chloroform and bam - you're dating.

I am having a blast in Birmingham, today! Local consignment shop is closing out a TON of fall/winter stuff for $2 per item. This is stuff that has been in the back. Once customers fail to come in and pick up their unsold items, they liquidate the shit out of it. Most of it is wimminz, but I couldn't care less. So far, I have picked up 6 pairs of Tory Burch boots / mules / flats, 3 pairs of Frye boots, 2 pairs of Gucci (yes, authentic) heels, Tory Burch handbags, lots of NIB Donald J Pliner and Cole Haan filler stuff, some Hunter rain boots, and lots of ties and assorted menswear. This is awesome. I am eating lunch and then I am going back in!

 

(In case you are wondering, I am the only one allowed in that area of the store today. The sale doesn't officially start until tomorrow. As a "favorite customer," the owner is letting me have the first shot at everything!) :slayer:

I tried shopping without a cart, and it's just too much of a pain in big stores, where the men's section is usually in the back. I'm too lazy to walk back up front if I find something. Since I've been thrifting, I've gotten very good at maneuvering a shopping cart.

Those carts usually cramped the isle in cramped stores. I like those smaller ones which you pull around.

One time my cart was sort of in the middle of the isle, then this red neck guy came and literally kicked my cart out of the way. We had a staredown, then he went back to his welfare funded home to abuse his wife

After a short while with Nervesa they moved operations in house and now make their own shit. And yes that tag is reminiscent of a Partenopea tag, however if put side by side, you would see quite a big difference between the two. Also the manufacturers tag that is on the inside of the garment is the put there in the factory by whomever it was manufactured by. Thus the tag would have to be Caruso if it were made by Caruso.

I meant I wasn't sure about the tag because I don't know much about the tags, bar the ones I'm likely to come across, and I'd have to go to to Paris to find Cifonelli. Which is a damn shame.

Interesting information though, and interesting that they chose to make in Italy rather than France - I suppose to get the quality.

Ive done this and im neither on welfare nor do i abuse my wife.
Maybe it was just a dick move on ur part to leave it in the middle of the aisle and not be considerate of other shoppers.
