It was hidden behind a letter, a full page written in metallic ink, the gist of which was, "believe in yourself". I wish I would have saved it, but it's already in a dumpster.

This is the most brilliantly pithy response possible.  Seriously, +unreasonablylargenumber to you.

Thanks, bro! I think you're right about the square. Still haven't quite gotten the hang of that whole thing yet. But good judgment can only come from experience, which is nothing more than the exercise of bad judgment. So I'll keep trying!

I'd assume, like most things in the universe, it's gravity.

Finally got to hit the circuit today. Left behind a Canali corduroy suit in my size that finally went half price. It was still $125 angry.gif

Corneliani Easy Jacket and an Hermes flannel shirt. Also an awesomely floppy Borsalino Panama hat.......

Pretty gross, unlikely to find anything good, and probably illegal

 

Thrift stores are a good cause and give you the chance to find Hermes flannels and ties for $5

IMO, if you're serious, there should be another thread dedicated to it. Personally, for hygenic reasons, I wouldn't partake, but others might.

Nice score, finally found those shells, eh.

Greetings from Honolulu ! 1st stop---> Found a Brioni MOP microcheck button down. Sweet. Left 3 cool Dunhill shirts (all had monograms on the chest pocket) Can you remove those without "ghost letters" meaning the stitches leave the outline of the letters? 2nd stop - 3 Wilkes-Bashford shirts with pit stains and a beautiful L Borrelli with about 50 spaghetti sauce stains on it facepalm.gif
