I can definitely agree with that. In previous sales, I have picked up; Kiton, Brioni, Ferragamo, Borrelli, Stefano Ricci, Marinella, Tallbott, Zegna, T&A, etc.

I found some on display at a hotel's sitting room in Bangkok. None for sale, though.

 

There were antique knick knacks which were immaculately exhibited in the library, sitting room, and dining room. Vintage trunks, taxidermy, notebooks, maps, books, mapping tools, optician's equipment.

Thanks for the update and pics, won't be to everyones taste but I think the above works alright.

 

I couldn't decide between olive / navy and sure enough by the time i'd decided today the spring20 no longer works >.< always the way when procrastinating on promos.

I think olive will age better. Get it from Mr Porter. It will be about $25 aud more. But much quicker delivery and you will get a garment bag to store it and the free White pocket square. I am expecting a Barbour liddesdale navy from end tomorrow.

Couldn't say; it's years since I bought them, and can't recall what I paid.

Can't remember his name, but there was a member here a while ago whose idea of design was to cut holes in shirts, ties, etc. Has he made a comeback?
