John Molloy made in Ireland sweater, no size tag but I'd guess L... this photo sucks, it's navy with blue flecks.
Brooks Brothers USA buttondown 15.5-33
Barbour Field Tattersall shirt, tagged EUR L US M
Barbour Country Tattersalls shirt, tagged EUR L US L (don't get the sizing difference?)
Apologies for the even-crappier-than-usual pic, but one snap and I'm back laying on the couch with some hot tea and tissues.post #27637 of 1387283/3/12 at 9:08am
On the left, a pair of Dack's camel-skin oxfords. These shoes are at least 30 years old, but they're in great shape in size 14. I can't wear them, but they came with a pair of shoe trees, and they were too cool to leave behind. If you want to kick ass in a pair of supple camel shoes, let me know and they're yours for shipping, paypal fees, and the $3 that I paid for them.
On the right, a Brioni tie.post #27638 of 1387283/3/12 at 9:25am
Any plain white non-iron shirt (with collar stays). And the tie itself might not be the problem, it is that the knot is sloppy. If the Duhill won't tie right, find another one. I've found plenty of $9 ties at TJMaxx that produce better knots than my more expensive ties. Spoo always has good knots, you should be shooting for something like this:post #27639 of 1387283/3/12 at 9:29amQuote:Originally Posted by Ace_Face

Its probably the knot tie-er not the tie. I will take the blame for that. I guess I need a lesson. Thanks, I appreciate the feedback.
post #27640 of 1387283/3/12 at 11:12am^Try to use a wider ( or tie short) and more substantial tie. A Windsor or half Windsor may look better on the mannequin. Spoo's shirt collar style is of course good, make sure to use metal collar stays so you can shape them the way you want.
Family obligations will take me near a Barney's outlet once a week, next two months. Today RLPL, Isaia, Cuccinelli, Etro etc shirts were half price at 150 plus tax range, not all sizes were available at every color. Duchamp PS 40+tax, and Isaia 7folds quite a variety 100+tax range, HF ties70 range, Brioni ties 100 range. Also other Barneys stuff. There was a particular LP Storm system outerwear (cashmere), almost a peacoat, made by Jack Victor for Barneys 250 bucks at 50% off. Mrs was with me so could not do an impulse buy.
I can proxy if u need anything.post #27641 of 1387283/3/12 at 11:30am
Stoked on this Lord Forecaster Jacket I found. But alas it's a 42 R too short in the arms for me. Couldn't pass it up though b/c it was too cool and thought I could trade it here. Dual pockets on the sides. Double vented. Fleece inside. Warm. Available to trade ?Warning: Spoiler!

Hello all, long time lurker here who loves to keep up with this thread. While I was out today I came across this Willis and Geiger wool jacket. Definitely not my style, and I never buy things that are not my size and would not wear, but I know W&G has a cult following and figured I would pick it up. Is there a specific name for this type of jacket? I searched online and couldn't find anything definitive. I figured this is one of the few places to find someone who would know or care about this. I apologize for the crappy cell phone pics.post #27645 of 1387283/3/12 at 1:36pmQuote:Originally Posted by 330CK

These look like they would clean up nice with just some leather conditioner even. Also, just my opinion so take it with a grain of salt, but something about nice leather shoes on a rusty metal grate just dosnt go together...
Just an FYI, if you are a 42L and would have any interested in this sport coat let me know ASAP. It's gone in 24 hours. I can work on the price a little especially for you guys.
