Popped in to one spot after work and ended up with some very heavy panniers on my bike.
vintage PRL tweed, 40L
deadstock Desert Storm hat that made me think of Tubesteak
medusa head on me like I'm 'lluminati
Pierre Balmain scarf
and the reason for all the weight... a chunk of AOR and dad-blues records. Most is stuff I know but I took a few chances on some 70s titles.post #108278 of 1387286/25/14 at 8:52pmpost #108279 of 1387286/25/14 at 9:05pmQuote:Originally Posted by danne888
I have an oppurtunity to buy an Belvest suit at a great price, its second hand and i have a few questions about the fit. Im wondering if the shoulders are too wide, what do you guys think? The arms also are too short and need to be lenghtended and it has to be taken in over the shoulderblades. Thank you for your help!
I realize this is late and I hope it's not TOO late, but considering the other advice given publicly... the shoulders do indeed look too big, leading to that weird bunching in the back. I would not buy, you'll regret it. Also, this is more a point of preference, but it looks a bit conservative for someone your age.
Used to be that when I went to the North Etobicoke Value Village, I'd cross my fingers that I'd stumble upon a rack of his newly donated, Humpty Dumpty-shaped bespoke suits.
Then I read that he wears Hugo Boss.
And now he pairs those suits with cowboy boots.post #108280 of 1387286/25/14 at 9:16pmQuote:Used to be that when I went to the North Etobicoke Value Village, I'd cross my fingers that I'd stumble upon a rack of his newly donated, Humpty Dumpty-shaped bespoke suits.

lol......it could be Doug's clothes! I wonder if he lives in that area too ???post #108281 of 1387286/25/14 at 9:33pm
Tonight, with a few hours to myself, I went tie hunting. The Brooks Bros jacket was incidental. The best part about thifting is the price. I got the whole lot for $40.
Paisley isn't usually my style, but the Bugatti tie matches the jacket so nicely that I think I'll keep it. What looks like a bright blue windowpane in the jacket is really a dark green. It's some sort of UV anomaly caused by the digital camera or the type of lighting.post #108282 of 1387286/25/14 at 10:06pmQuote:Originally Posted by leftofthedial
Picked up one thing Monday:
Tagged M - around 38 or so. Available.
Um. I know where you found that. I tried it on friday morning and I didn't know anything about the brand so I left it. Glad it went to an SF'er.
And if you found it in Manhattan, then there's another one in brooklyn. Oy. Should really have grabbed it.post #108283 of 1387286/25/14 at 10:33pmQuote:

Seemed Like a cool piece but didn't fit me. I tried to find it a few mins later but I think they were re-sorting it. Besides, couldn't find anything on eBay. Hadn't really seen anyone post about it here either.
Isn't the first mistake I made and it won't be the last.
But yeah, I figured the thing was pretty cool. My mistake was to assume it was made in China.
I think it had fallen through the pricers cracks too.
