It'd be really cool if you modified it by installing Honda Civic door hinges on it!

Once upon a time, I purchased an unbelievably nice handmade bespoke suit for $40 at a thrift store. I was shocked to see a certain man's name handwritten in the pocket label for 2 reasons:

1) I hate to divulge personal information in places like this, but this man's net worth is estimated at least $3 billion above Mr. Berlusconi.

2) I had a meeting planned with his ex-wife the next day. I wore the suit.

Found some pretty cool ties the other day, as well as a nice BR suede belt. No brands of note but I like the designs! silk, wool knit, silk knit, wool knit, linen, cotton!
