Also picked up an identical table to the one shown below, but in serious need of some polishing.



 

Where dat skeetz!?

Are all Missoni shirts worth a pick up or is it just the crazy patterns that sell?

worth a shot

Damn, and here I am with most of my saved searches as 'pre owned' not thinking that I could score something like that. eBay might possible take up my entire day, every day.

A bit off topic but these do quite well if you are out in the field.

Returned last night from Europe last night, got to spend time on Savile Row last week and had a great experience. Was a little intimidated at first, thinking people might be a bit to exclusive for the average person walking in the door, but every shop I went into was very welcoming. Everyone was happy to let me walk around and watch some of the cutters work. Stopped at Gieves and Hawkes, Henry Poole, Huntsmans, and Dege Skinner,

 

Best experience was at Huntmans. Walked in, walked around the front showroom for a bit, spoke to the front greeter for a couple minutes, and as we're heading out the door someone from the back walks up (younger but seemed to have more of a management confidence to him) and started chatting with my wife and I. Offered to show us a little farther back in the shop to watch two of their cutters work and took us to one of the measuring rooms where part of Kingsmans Secret Service was filmed. Best part, as we finished that my wife commented to me how much she loved one of the bolts of tweed they had out on a front table and the man said it was one of their current house tweeds and told the greeter to pull three from the back for me to try on. While I was dressed nicer than the normal tourist (Dark denim, PRL button up), I definitely didn't look like I was ready to drop 2,500 pounds on a tweed jacket. He didn't seem to be trying to make a sale, just seemed genuinely proud of what he was doing.

 

Unfortunately most places (understandably) had signs inside asking for no pictures of the interiors, so outside shots are all I have.

Most places had a basement where you could view the working tailors

Is there an alternative company other than Tie Crafters to narrow a tie? $37 to narrow/ship is ridiculous

i mean.... not really. youre basically paying them to make a tie only youre providing the fabric. Not as simple as say slimming the leg of a trouser. assuming around $7 to ship, $30 to take apart and re-fold sounds (to me) pretty reasonable.

I was going to go thrifting this weekend, but I went and saw Radiohead and LCD Soundsystem instead.
