I wish I could, I just don't have the time and when I do I don't get to go in on my own without others tagging along.

 

I'm there in the next few weeks to meet up with some guys from Paul Smith (I'm excited), so I'll check some out while I'm there.

I thought you might, I'm a big fan of his Japanese inspired garments like the deerskin shoes I found a while back.

The social media team are really helpful, they spent hours answering any question I had or Instagram, and due to me missing the PS book signing recently, they arranged to get one signed form Paul himself for me.

One company I'll be keeping up with for a dry long time... Not just for the clothes, but for the people.

How big is Paul Smith over there?

This isn't a thrift, but I got it at a good price. Trying to split firewood with a pocket knife while camping made me realize I need a hatchet. So I got the best one out there... Gränsfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet.

Can a brother get some sympathy?

(Will post a pic when I can)


Isaia aquaspider suits and tuxedo, best investment I ever made.

I had a very similar moment this weekend. I spilled a glass of white wine all over myself at a wedding on Saturday. Thank god it was white wine.

Sup fam; fishy lives.

 

Two quick finds (of many, naturally)

 

Isaia 120s suit in sage, 42 x 36

Wonderful bespoke charcoal chalkstripe piece. With a 10 being Camps de Luca and a 1 being a metallic polyester rent-a-tux, this is about a 9.75/10.

 

Spotted the jacket across the aisle  (handmade surgeon cuffs gave it away instantly), spent next hour looking for pants to no avail. 

 

Sat down to damage check my pieces... discovered the pants mismatched with a brooks brothers suit in my cart :) I'll take that over the BB any day! 

 

42 x 34.

Seven-fold tie, made in Italy, but no tag other than the fabric tag.  Anyone recognize this?

   Thick silk, has that "thread loop", is 3.5" wide.

Or did I just get a fake "no-name" tie?

Regardless, if it's 3.5" wide, I'll take it :nodding:
