Last call on registration for the gift exchange!

I'll accept people through this evening (your time, N. America; Sundayish my time). I'll be going through all of the PayPal donations tomorrow afternoon. If you haven't yet, please shoot a payment to the email address in the PM. I'll send out a PM to those from whom I haven't received a payment.

There may be a slight delay in drawing the names, I'll need to wait until @capnwes returns from vacation to draw half of them.

We've got quite a few people, but I'm happy to add anyone else that would like to join!

If anyone has, finds, or has a line on a decent priced Breitling chronometer 808 throw me a PM. It's becoming a grail item for me, haha.

Spending the day looking at wedding venues but I had to pop in somewhere. I like it.

Hmm, wonder if I wound up with a fake. 533C275A3406 doesn't seem to correspond to their coding system.

Speaking of Brioni... (that black stuff is mink)

The details on this were so over the top. Leather lining under the collar and in several other places. Each cuff had the same black leather strap with gold buckle that you see on the back. It had a removable vest and the mink collar was removable. The blue fabric was a cashmere/wool/silk blend, I think. If it had been about $500 cheaper I would have picked it up. Could have still flipped it, but after fees and taxes I didn't think it was worth the initial outlay, especially considering how specific the styling was. It took everything in me to put it back.

Can't decide if I want to keep or flip.  It's so rad I can't lose either way.

Polo with beach/car scenes.  Someone starched this thing like it's going out of style.  Was cardboard when I found it, two washes later and it's still stiff.

Not sure what this is, but It's comfy and has leather trim.

Keeping the PRL train rolling, Vintage Madras, for me.

 

 

Unfortunately not Polo Bear, but worth keeping it.

 

 

First time I've ever found a Supreme shirt, so no idea if legit.  The workmanship doesn't seem to be that special, but still better than other shirts I've seen.  Only thing that throws me is that the printing isn't super crisp.

One tiny hole from the tag (:brick:) in this Sulka, which was a bummer, but it's pretty cool anyway.

Lastly, A very generous friend gave me first pick at his yard-sale pile.  One small tear that I stitched up, and I won't be cold this winter!
