I made two trips to thrift today, to drop stuff off.

Including; Zegna suit, Armani shirt, Thomas Pink shirt,
Burberry pants, Brooks Brothers suits, Dunhill pants, AE shoes,
Kuhlman shirts.

Spring cleaning feels good.

Streak finally broke today (was that short-lived or what?) with a bust at store 2. Store 1, though:

Footjoy shell tassels 9D
Martin Dingman genuine cayman crocodile belt, 36
Cale genuine crocodile over genuine lizard belt, 36

One of these days something will be in my size!

Just dropped off that Oxxford Navy suit at the tailor, what a wonderful tailor she turned out to be. The moment she touched the wool she asked me where it was from because it was very good wool. She then proceeded make the necessary changes to the suit. Lengthen sleeve (+move buttons), lengthen pants, take in chest = $50 total! so all in all, 60 bucks for my oxxford suit.

Not yet, just dropped it off. Will present in a week.

I have to say though, not a huge fan of fit pics as the opinions seems to vary so widely. Maybe it's just because it's hard to tell from pics or maybe everybody just has a different opinion.

Someone will have to explain to me just what the exact deal is with these Foot•Joys ...

Coming from a guy who considers 99% of fashion and *quality* to be peer influence, marketing, and self-deception, these shoes just strike me as irredeemably cheeeeap. Maybe it's the goofy logo. Or the utter carboardish rigidity of the shoes I've seen. Or the fact that they have all looked pissed on. I mean, cordovan I guess I can understand...but the rest just look like eighty year-old Dr. Scholl's.



Anyone? Bueller?

FootJoy made a line that was pretty similar in quality to Allen Edmonds, USA made Goodyear welted shoes. Footjoy made nice shoes like J&M and Florsheim did.

I saw my first Stefano Ricci suit today, summer weight with side vents
too big though about 46 or 48R.

Price $250

I found a very nice 42L Ralph Lauren sport coat today at my local thrift store. I hesitate to call it tweed, but it's the closest I can make. It needs a bit of care and tailoring, but it's still in pretty great condition, and it was only $20. They also had a 38R black Zegna two-piece for $30 - alas.

Wow! That's a good price for Stefano Ricci.... if it's his RECENT Stuff.

I saw two pairs of these shoes, but I was not sure if they are worth the price. Who is the maker? Any experience? Thanks!

BTW, I also saw a few pairs of bespoke F. Pinet shoes (some with alligator ar leather). Are they comparable to Lobb? Unfortunately too small for me.
