It IS somewhat commonish for people who don't know better / don't like it to cut the tail off of that - but yes, it is in fact meant to be fastened just like a onesie. There's a button on the lower front to use for this I think. The idea is that way, you won't have to worry about your tux shirt coming loose and untucked as you dance / move / whatever - after all, when wearing a tux it can be a major pain to readjust like that, let alone "appropriate" if you're at the kind of event that you'd be wearing a tux to.

Too bad the sleeves aren't 36" or I'd be snapping that up - I found a Borrelli tux shirt on ebay but it... isn't quite as traditional as I thought when I bought it, though it'll do.

Seriously? WTF! A Bose effing radio AND a kickass camera?? Mind = Blown. worship.gif (Oh, also, the BB and the Isaia are very nice indeed. Are they black, or is that just the lighting? Available?)

Huh. Really?

My day: Meeting ran late. Drove 90MPH to get to the Will before closing; had to settle for a different, lesser Will on the way. Still only had about 10 minutes. Saw Church's in the display box. Black monks. Was all bounce2.gif. They wanted $140. Was all baldy[1].gifcensored.gif Settled for a Graham-like Ted Baker shirt, beat to hell pair of AE tassel loafs (pics if they rehab, otherwise I'll spare you) and a stained-ass BB1818 tie that I should have passed on but, because it got me the discount, I only paid, like, 80 cents for. Again, pics if it comes clean in dry cleaners.

Passed on a pair of 7 For All Mankind Jeans (31 x 30ish). They wanted more than a Jackson for it. I know denim even less than I know shoes. Did I screw up?

EDIT: Seriously, as if today wasn't painful enough, now I'm RIGHT after DM7's daily epic hoard? I thought you were "taking a break," dude! Just kidding, bro. (Just remember: You can quit anytime you want) I think Dunhill's Italian stuff is by Zegna. Nice stuff.

It's the most recent label with the 3 names, but is likely from when they first changed over. I'd say very early 00's?

Whoa, wait....what? That looks like a nice, solid staple Brioni to me. Not really dated looking either (the label is recent).

Those PZ trousers are amazing, as is that Kiton you're sporting. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

But I also found more ties

How can I fix the Brioni? The stitching needs some work.

Wow - nice haul! T&A Sea Island Cotton is on another level.

Only disappointing part is... you can tell they were marked 3.99 then they erased it and changed it to 19.99, bastards

Gorgeous shoes! A steal, even at $20!

Most likely. My brother has first dibs though. He's really into keyboards and pianos.

Thanks, I had one maybe 10 years ago, not quite this nice. I have since switched my studio over to digital recording. Always regretted getting rid of it.

I see Alexandre London quite often.  Some is decent quality, but nothing to write home about and if your interest is in flipping, it won't really move. 

 

Re: Dormeul, I'd like to know too.  I picked up a tie by them that I really like.  It ties up a great knot and seems to be of very good quality, but I couldn't find much at all about them, so anyone wiser feel free to chime in.

Alexandre is, if I'm not mistaken, sort of a joke. They do have a shop on Savile Row, but only so they can say they do. The quality is not good, and I believe not generally highly regarded in these parts. I have, however, seen things sell for a good amount on eBay from them.

The Dormeuil cloth is excellent, though, especially on a Samuelsohn. That would sell nicely on here.

Thanks to both of you gentlemen. The Dormeuil seemed to be very nice, I'll keep an eye out for it next time.  

 

I figured the Alexandre was nothing special.  I didn't find anything impressive at the time I saw it.
