Hermes not brag worthy? confused.gif

Hell yeah Hermes is bragworthy.  Too clarify, I meant the 6-fold I found is not a bragworthy find...Paul Fredrick.

Yeah he did, but I misquoted ick's original post so it was my bad.

It is a definitely PM worthy though. I am not sure I have seen a non-bespoke 7 fold grenadine. What are the chances of someone thrifting a 7 fold grenadine?

Found a Bugatchi Uomo dress shirt with interesting buttons that I like. Just tagged as a "L," so the neck will probably be a little too big for me. mad.gif On another note, I have started reading this thread from page 1 and have gotten to page 36. smile.gif

Oh I thought you were acting sarcastically surprised.  I had no idea a grenadine seven fold is so rare.  Awesome!!

How many posts per page do you have it set it on your profile/account details?

That's a nice tie. I'd have that off the rack so fast.

 

Today, got a BB navy pinstriped suit, made in 2006, 42L. Just noticed that there's a tear along the seam of the right trouser pocket :(

 

Also, a Nordstrom blazer in black-on-black herringbone Loro Piana camel. Also, a purple linen/silk Polo shirt, a linen Banana Republic shirt for knocking around in this summer. and a shirt by Ferragamo. Real MOP buttons, vertical stripes. And a Talbott tie for a California store called At Ease.

Sorry my Photo Booth pix suck.

I'm not gonna keep the suit, though the avenue through which I will pass it on has yet to be determined. Dunno if will keep Ferragamo shirt, either.

That's pretty much what's happening here with the advent of spring at two of my four regular stops. All the long sleeve shirts are off the racks, the suits and sport coats aren't being replaced as they slowly disappear and trousers have been replaced by shorts. No outerwear is going out, either. The down side is obvious. On the up side, I spend half as much time thrifting--doesn't take long to check shoes, belts, ties and bric brac. Come September, however, there will be a flood of pent-up treasure released all at once. Happens every year.
