Agreed. Most likely a Chinese copy of the 6497-1. Even if it's swiss, it is a bit funny that Panerai uses essentially a $250-400 pocket watch movement created by Unitas, what, 70 years ago.

I mean its a chinese made suit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Hype. I just sold a Chinese cashmere SS cardigan for more than I sold a Loro Piana cotton sweater. Around 35-40% of retail.

Big shout out to Jompso! Have my sisters wedding coming up in a month and was in need of a few suits all similar for the wedding party. He not only had the inventory to help out but was more than fair on helping out. Box showed up today and not only was the stuff primo but it also had some extra goodies! Just awesome stuff man!

Did we see Takai's Rolex yet?

Quite happy with today.

Shirts: Alfred Dunhill, Zegna Couture, Charvet:



Huntsman navy shadow stripe suit. The name on the "made for" label is intriguing:





Christian Kimber suede loafers. (Kimber is/was an SF member, and his shoes are rocked by lots of the Aussie Members cadre).



Tiffany cut crystal perfume bottle, along with a bunch of other perfume and toiletries. Notably Le Labo toiletries - tres niche.

I thrifted this last August. Priced at $35 at a st. Vinnie's.. I grabbed it and walked straight to the cashier. The cashier gave me 20% off because she liked my Digital Underground t-shirt. So it ended up costing me $28 smile.gif . Sold it for over $500.

Sounds like I need to go through my parent's bike shed next time I'm there... We've got a few pre-mass production mongoose, GT something, and a couple other odds and ends. I'm still upset with them for hauling off a load of 1960-80s Vintage schwinns. To the dump.

If every day was this good, I'd have a Joker-like perma-smile.

I used to love those old bare bones Mongoose racers. They were tough and relatively lightweight for the time. In addition to the 4130 chromoly frame, they had the small downtube, alloy rims, and only a coaster brake to reduce any excess weight.
