About the shell longwings? I was just debating with myself on that...

I went to a couple of spots and pulled some SW&D.  Everything is tentatively unavailable.  Here are the highlights:

No, I'm not throwing my hat in the ring for those - I'm trying to cut down on stuff ATM, ha. I was just telling Stissius about my experiences with combat boots.

^^^ Thanks, Nat!  smile.gif  All the SW&D stuff is just icing.  There's a whole other haul of vintage and not-so-vintage BBGF and other MC stuff.

Typhoid killing the photos as usual....Unfortunately my apartment is more or less a cave, and my photos reflect that.

Small Polo Suede Leather Jacket. Made in China but retail is about 1k, so hoping to get a decent amount from the Bay. Smells like a homeless man's left nut though. I lightly febreezed it to no avail. Any insight on removing raunchy smells from leather?

42L Henry Jacobson Hand Tailored. Almost left it, as it's made in China, but quality is good. Fully canvassed, double vented, 3 roll 2, soft shoulder. Roughly 1/3 each silk/linen/wool blend. Still has the basting in the shoulders/other parts of the jacket, and doesn't look to have been worn. Available to all you 42L guys (preferably for trade).

Obnoxious Polo madras shorts. Planning to rock these with an unstructured navy SC on our next wine tour/other events that call for regretful behavior.

Thrift fit: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I know I'm not satisfied with: a) the pic quality (too grainy and white balance off); and b) the waist suppression (needs more). But both of these can be fixed. More troubling is the shoulders: They seem to be riding up, and I'm concerned they're too wide. I'm also cautiously optimistic that my tie/square/shirt combo isn't riotously offensive, but I'm still not sure I've really gotten that art down yet.
Suit: Dunhill MTM, dark gray with purple overcheck; double vent, working surgeon cuffs
Shirt: CT, french cuff, white
Links: handmade
Tie: HF Collection
Square: Silk, handrolled in Italy, unknown origin
Shoes: Cole Haan cap toe oxford
100% thrifted/discount stored/Ebayed by me, including socks and tee shirt (not pictured)

fight[1].gif you guys on the PM to Stissius, I got him 30 seconds after post. Having worn yesterday the French Shriner wings I got from EasyE, I was surprised at their narrowness (despite being tagged my size). So I may need wings again, unfortunately....

Diggin those madras shorts! Would definitely wear them wine tasting while asking for double pours.

I had the same issue with the Hanover wings. They are much more narrow for a D width than the other brands I've worn. I'm more of an E width, but the Hanovers are very narrow for me. Still in the market for light brown wings as well.

Hey Guys.

Been lurking SF for years but have recently made my way over here where the men are and the adrenaline flows.

I took my son to a nearby GW for some clothes for grad (grade 6 grad, so who wants to spend real money on it?) and in the space of 10 minutes got bit by the bug.

BTW, I live in a northern city, not what you'd call cosmopolitan but there's enough oil wealth sloshing around that people travel and consume conspicuously. So there appears to be some potential - though I don't think I'll be striking gold with Kiton suits.

First up, a standard issue Harris Tweed by St. Michaels for Marks & Spencer. Some nice colours and texture going on.

And two minutes later, at the tail end of rifling the ties:

Nice to be here and looking forward to learning from some masters of the art.

Edit: hmmm, the armani is just "Giorgio". I know black label Giorgio is generally decent stuff, but I haven't seen the white "Giorgio" label, just the black one and le collezioni/collezioni (what I assumed it was when I initially saw it) which are mediocre at best.

I passed on all the Mani and Le Collezioni. I like the Collezioni but it was worn down.

And of course anything else that falls under the 'It fits, it's for me and I like it' rule.

It was an orphaned Canali Tux jacket. It was a first one I've seen made for Bloomingdale. I guess I could of used it as a dinner jacket but I'm not that fancy...

 

I bought the BB Makers just because they were made in US. I now try to avoid the ones made in Malaysia if I'm having a good haul.

Oh man, it was HUGE! I bought those strictly for flipping.
