Tempted to do a thrift fit pic...

 

Couldn't find the appropriate garb so here's what I'm wearing (I know it's a horrible fashion faux pas):

Fallan & Harvey Bespoke Suit (Charcoal pinstripe)

Corneliani Shirt (Dark blue)

Stefano Ricci Tie (purple paisley)

Lanvin High Tops (Patent leather blue, and silver mesh)

I'm sure you'll fit right in if it's just a whole bunch of college kids

Isn't it all's fair? Of course, that's easy to say, given what appears to be a lack of regulars around here. I see, maybe, three, and then only once or twice a month. They never seem to be looking for the stuff I covet.

Bespoke suit made for another guy + sneakers. I'd love to see it.

As always, gotta give appreciation to those who came through for me with offers of the suit. I'm pretty sure Lookingr8 just saved me a ton of money this summer and likely improved my chances of returning to my firm or another one during my 1L summer. Realizing how much people have done for me, I'm going to give away a few things for just shipping that I never got to trade or put on ebay. They're nothing too crazy, but they are pretty nice (those D&G cord/jeans, PRL made in italy pants, two pink shirts, a versace classic, and that pendleton IIRC. Might be some more). I'll post pics either tomorrow or Monday when I get a chance, but anyone that's been really helpful to me in the past, or to other forum members recently as i haven't been here (i'll check post count) is eligible. Just ask once the pics are up (or ask now if you can remember what they look like. I'm not going through my IMGUR right now).

Second thing, gonna put this in the ID thread in a couple of days if i get no luck here, but we move a lot faster here. can anyone help me ID them? They seem quality: the heels have a nice click although some wear, the leather wasn't cracked or dry, still kind of supple actually, and the previous owner left his Topy's on them. I'm currently deciding on whether or not to keep them as they are slightly wide but I don't have a captoe right now to go with my suit (thankfully no one seems to notice that they are bluchers....yet). More pics in spoiler

And that brings me to my last point. Anyone have a pair of Oxford captoes available around 9.5D? (Maybe a 9E, my foot is kind of strange as my pinky toes were never broken and reset completely straight as they probably should've been). either for trade or purchase, I'd appreciate a good deal either way. Wanna maximize my chances of looking good this summer in front of various partners, associates and clients for my future. As always brothers, have a great day. Gotta run right now, sorry for any typos did this really hastily.

Finds from the past 2 days, lots of ebay fodder not pictured. IMG_0874.JPG top left to right: AE mansfield 9.5B, Florsheim Imperial 8.5D (for me unless someone else really wants them which I doubt), Bottom Row left to right: AE ostendo Nassau 10.5B, AE ostendo Leeds 8.5A, and AE Boulevard 8D (also avaliable, for anyone who pries them from my cold, dead hands).

IMG_0876.JPGIMG_0875.JPG (is the chanel fake or just old? I don't know anything about chanel) IMG_0881.JPG I've never seen a BB "BFS" tie, im assuming this is black fleece? IMG_0877.JPG IMG_0878.JPG ( I didn't notice these till taking pictures ffffuuuu.gif IMG_0879.JPG (measurements avaliable if anyone wants this holes and all, itll be on the super cheap obviously i'd say its in the 42R ballpark)

IMG_0880.JPG After the interest in the other plaid pants, these are Polo 40/30 IMG_0882.JPG RT Carmel in size M, probably already spoken for. Uniqlo size M, RG XL for ebay, and a Brioni Casual in size L. I rescued the Brioni from the half price rack $2.

Is uniqlo really worth picking up? Unless it fits you I guess... their shirts frequently go on sale for the $20 range new.

Kudos to Beck for sending me an awesome RLPL polo that came today. fing02[1].gif

post #36825 of 118036

I'm assuming I'll have NO luck with this request....but if anyone finds a halfway decent (i'm talking good condition, wear once because I need to) lighter summer suit in the next few weeks 36S and can proxy that would be extremely helpful. I have a summer beach wedding the last weekend in June and trying to decide between my sold gray or solid blue wool suits isnt providing many good options shog[1].gif
