@ jpmorris: You've got an address and a car don't you?  Pick up a case of red bull, drive over there, and put some work in.  devil.gif

He messages me again (in broken english, but has address in CT or MA), we exchange a few messages over the course of the day with me replying no less than 3 TIMES, that I have 0 issue with giving him a refund. He then says blah blah blah, I opened a dispute with Paypal. I tell him there is no dispute as I've offered you a full refund... To top it all off, initially he wanted me to ship to a different address than was on Paypal, but I refused. If I could, I would beat the shit out of this guy right now. Any advice on what to do with paypal? 

Did he start the dispute yet? Just accept it if you've already offered a refund. If not, just wait for him to do so.

Also trying a new hairstyle, parted on the right instead of brushed straight back. Axe Sleek Shine Pomade.
The shirt's a bit big but it's just the right weight for today's weather and the sleeves are rolled per F. Corbera. Plus I REALLY like the collar.

Also thrifted? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

and this...
527

but fortunately it wasn't a total loss as it also had this...
232

Sadly as much as I want to believe I can make this work on me the shoulders are just too small and it is available to a smaller 40 or 38R... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Please note that I'm a total newb to this stuff, so it may be obvious either way, but is this polo legit?

To me this looks like just an old label. I has a sweater vest that's about 10 years old from back when they started making their comeback that is made in France. Lacoste essentially disappeared in the US from about '84 - '85 to the early 2000's. I think Devanlay is their mass producer much like Izod and Chemise were in the 1980's

Damn, where are the wide-ish size 12 shells at. One of these days.

 

Came across my first Aquascutum coats/suits today. All appeared to be in excellent condition, though on the inner pocket opposite the ones with the Aqua tag, the previous owners decided to cut the tag out in a most novel way. They cut the entire fucking pocket along with the tag puzzled.gif. Then again, Aquascutum shouldn't be made in the U.S.A. right? These were... Diffusion?
