I flip it over and see the tag. "I'll take it!"

Nice! I knew that it was LP without the need for the second picture. The colors and patterns are very distinctive.

Boring stuff from today

Haven't got out much lately but snuck in one stop on the way home from the airport. Nothing crazy just some regular level things. But I have always wanted to use the superhero belt in a casual setting but wasn't willing to buy one at retail out of principal ha. Finally found one that fits at the thrift!

LOL I have three Lilly patchwork ties. They don't see much use, but I like them regardless.

 

One man's atrocious is another man's cool, I guess.

On a very sunny day I could see it work. Like with a raw linen suit and a white shirt in a casual weave. In Brazil, Miami or some place hot. Panama hat, of course.

Well I am from San Diego.

 

I collect Lilly ties because they remind me of my mom. She loved Lilly. Up to about 20 or so, lost count. 

 

I think the only time I've worn a patchwork is to the horse races. I pair it with trad type stuff, OCBD, penny loafers, etc.

VV is starting to get wise; $18 for the three eton shirts on the left (DNC but will admit I like the patterns on the last 2)... prices will probably go down again when they don't sell

 

 

Never expected to find this where I am; too bad the collar's destroyed

 

Anyone know the maker? DNC but it was fully canvassed and I'm curious

They are definitely taking food off my table. I don't even bother now unless the 30% off card promo is on, and even then it's iffy. And they have these flash sales (e.g., 50% off all clothing) that I'm supposed to find out about in advance, being a club card member, but do I?

Okay,  just heard back and now all of the following sport coats which I have shown the past few days are available for trade or sale, PM me if interested in details.  All but the Oxxford are about 40 to 42.

 

Canali Kei

Kiton

Both Zegnas

Samuelsohn

Oxxford blue blazer with cool buttons

 

If not some of these will probably end up on the exchange.

I was wondering, what Hermes items has everyone found which aren't ties?

 

I lust for Hermes shoes and coats, so show me!

post #59804 of 60469

@RFHansen perhaps you know this but just for the sake of clarity in the thread since everyone always asks, that is not a grenadine, that's just a silk knit.

I'm definitely in for Robyn Hitchcock. Since I'm getting paid to go, my priority is jazz. Everything else, including possibly Wilco (but there is a pretty big conflict so probably not), is gravy. Pretty psyched for Meredith Monk.
