Always fun finding a new tag.

Nice details and I know they have a large SF presence.
And this skeet. Patch pocket denim.

Thinking of kids in some 3rd world ghetto running around barefoot and draped in Kiton cashmere or RLPL makes me smile.

Could be wrong, but this looks fake to me.

Agreed - that tag does look fucky (or it's new and I haven't seen it yet). But the other one - CiPa - looks like others I've had and they were legit.

For me, it was all about finding where the clutch engaged. Once you figure that out, you'll have a better idea on when to get on the accelerator and can play around with finding that sweet spot where everything just meshes perfectly thus equating to smooth shifts every time.

There's probably someone on here that can explain it a lot better than that. It's easier to show than it is to write out. smile.gif

I learned stick on a test drive. Friend came with me who knew how to drive stick and he drove the car off the lot. Went around the corner and we switched places - got about 30 minutes of lessons and had the basics down. Hardest to learn was keeping it in the sweet spot when stopped pointed uphill, but that'll be somewhat different on every car so you pretty much have to figure it out on each car.

He's that smooth.

He always ends with a swirl, too.

Help needed. Found this amazing vintage BB overcoat. Great details and weighs a ton. No other label except this one inside a pocket. Wondering how old this thing is... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

These were both super nasty when I picked them up at lunch. Shoulda taken before pics. Considering keeping first pair. Marked 9.5E, fits my 10.5-11US foot. Snug, but definitely wearable for a full day at a time.

If you guys know of anyone heading to Alabama to purchase a Southwick suit, tell them not to bother. I think that I just bought them all. :hide:
