After seeing Impuntura's shoes, I've had visions of sea turtles dancing in my head.
These are NA.

Hi,

My name is Justin Sanford and I was the one who contacted Luce Swap about the cosignment. Thank you everyone for the words for Brian. He was a good friend and for a short period my roommate. I showed Bryson Schaffer the support and he shed tears. Brian seems to have been himself here as he was in real life. He motivated both me and Bryson to dress better. We were content with merona and express and h&m but slowly we too became obsessed with dressing better. We went from t shirts and shorts to a button down and slacks. We're both customers of Gustin now. He was also extremely generous. He didn't care how much he could make from clothing and if it fit us hed urge us to take it and wear it the next time we went out. My favorite piece of clothing is a Ferragamo suede jacket I refused at first but he would constantly throw in my room. Both of our wardrobes are at least half full of things he gave us. He moved in with me when he heard I had fallen on hard times and paid twice the rent I asked saying he was just paying what he thought was fair. He taught me his ebay thing when I asked about it hoping to make some side income. When I figure out how to put pictures on here I want to share some of the things I found. He was a good teacher and kept me from making mistakes. He worked hard to keep his family afloat and I really want to dedicate this first box to them. Bryson, although he knows no Korean, has been helping them with all the paperwork and other misc things. I'm hoping I'll be able to contact a friend who can help translate all the kind words for his parents to hear. Thank you all.

Haven't found much lately besides my usual summer fodder (mostly Reyn Spooner and Jams World), but wanted to share these special items:

 

 

Talbott patchwork, Emilio Pucci, and yes I know it's only Resilio, but Historical Gothic Art.

 

And this gem:

 

1950w Hand-printed Alfred Shaheen, horizontal buttons, crisp rayon (I think it's rayon), collar loop. Missing two coconut shell buttons I will have to source for replacements.

Thank you, Justin. Maybe someone here speaks Korean who can translate the text into a document for you?

Great shirt. It is shaheens but it's the surf and sand company so it's not his early work wich brings the bucks. He started surf and sand in 1952. He started as a regular tailor then started his factory. He was the largest printer of shirts in the 1950s. He's second in my book as the best. He made some wild prints. I have buttons if you need. They might be molded plastic to look like shell but might be shell.

Thank you kindly, but I've already ordered some from Etsy (and I'll have some spares for other shirts). I'm not unhappy that it's not the big bucks. It's a pretty dang cool shirt. :D I'm not worried about breaking even when I sell it, either.

My 20 year search for the perfect vintage shades ended today with these german made beauties...plus a few others.this guy had good taste.






Unstructured dual vent.mint.




Can someone explain to me why these do so well on Ebay?
I mean its a chinese made suit.



These were inside the Mint vintage Tommy.
1998 hong kong coins so in guessing thats the last time it was worn.



And...
