Bluntly ignoring the warnings to drop the music meme (because even thrifters need a soundtrack), I'll defend myself once, and only once (because I frankly couldn't give a crap what anyone thinks of my music tastes): I straight up guarantee the songs you think I have on that mix are not the ones I actually have. (Conversely, if you think I haven't heard deep cuts into the Stones or whomever, you're likely wrong; I have and have knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily decided, through exercise of free will, that they're not for me -- brace yourself; I know that seems IMPOSSIBLE when the great Keith Richards is on the line, but it CAN happen). Peter Gabriel is not the mass produced stuff. It's from the sountrack to the movie Passion. Davis is from Sketches of Spain or Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. And so on. And as for instant gratification: IT'S MUSIC. That's kind of the point.

EDIT: I forgot the entire POINT of my post:
Picked up a J Press flannel charcoal chalk stripe suit today. No photos or measurements yet, but it seems to be around a 41R. Available; PM me if interested. Also picked up a couple of Vineyard Vines flat front chinos, 36R, I think I'll keep, but PM with interest.

I told myself I wouldn't annoy you guys anymore tonight, BUT, since you brought it up --

God, yes. Just when you think it can't get better, it's a Larisa Oleynick + Mad Men collab. drool.gif

Mad Men has ruined my life. I don't really watch the show, but I often find myself teaching advertising undergraduates who think they will very soon be living an updated version of the lifestyle depicted by the show. They're basically like "oh u gave me a c minus huh well fuck you imma be bangin hoes n wearin slim ties n drinkin scotch this time next year."

Pete Campbell commits suicide by the end of this season, heard it here first...

post #32108 of 125205
Ii picked up some wiered older canali piece.

Label:
Canali proposta

Tag size: 42 no drop indication and the letter c instead of an r or l

What the hell is it I thought canali always does the stupid +10 size indication thing?
Its probably like zzegna.

Anyways its unvented and 3 buttonso probably worthless I'm going to wear it as a party jacket with jeans so if some guy gets beer on it its NBD

The label says DIFFUSION. A designer label with the word diffusion on it means it's a lesser priced and lesser quality garment than the designer's primary, and more expensive, collection. It's almost like a licensed brand but not quite.

Is ted lapidus any good? their website says they're only in Dubai and other middle eastern nations with wealth. i see it alot and it doesn't feel too great.

I didn't realize/wouldn't think that nice SR tailors would be faked.  It just doesn't seem like they're widely known enough to fake.  Though I guess it makes sense...anything high cash value makes for a good target.


FWIW, I've seen that LP label before.
