Yup back in black.

Forgot another coolio item, this make my nuts swell, but 42L size a bit too trim. This one is available.

Oxxford suit, 42L, very recent, single vent, great shape on the jacket.

Pants will need some work by a reweaver. Holes occur close'ish to the cuff of the pants but one is about 4" above the cuff. If your inseam is under 30" you may get away with it. Holes not so noticable when I picked up because the pants are fully lined. Fully lined pants make a good camo for holes. Just need to be fixed up to be good as new.

Hi ya.

Long time lurker on SF but have only recently come over here to where the men are and the adrenaline flows.

Took my son 2 weeks ago to the nearby GW to get some grad clothes (grade 6 grad, so why spend serious money). I took a few minutes to browse the racks and had some luck.

BTW, I'm in a northern city here. Not at all cosmopolitan but a lot of money from oil so people travel and consume conspicuously. Hopefully that leads to some good stuff in the shops but I'm sure I'll never be hauling in the Italian suits.

First up, a standard issue genuine HT by St. Michaels for Mark & Spencers. Some nice colours going on there that the camera doesn't do justice to.

And a few minutes later, rifling through the ties:

Looking forward to contributing in some small way to this community and hopefully learning something from masters of the art.

I can't wait till they make the 17" MBP's with Retina Display. Maybe next year it'll be time to get a new one for work.

You don't find it cumbersome? I actually don't like the 17.

not much of a haul for me... RLPL tie, and a signed first collectors edition of twilight... now when does the new movie come out...

Kicking myself for leaving behind a Brighton purse... sometimes I should just trust intuition... still maybe it'll still be there at lunchtime tomorrow... wishful thinking I suspect...

I guess in retrospect I should have claimed I struck gold

OK terrible lighting thrift fit pic, but it's my first one. I mainly just want to know if you guys think the sc looks too long, if you can tell.

Bowtie: Burberrys (it's pink and looks great with the SC, but maybe looks a little small with the collar) Thrifted by me

SC: Isaia Linen/Silk From NerdyKarim on AAAC

Shirt: BR. Come on! I'm sorry. (it's a bit small in the neck, but fits my arms well) Thrifted by me

Pants: Brooks Madison (gray) From MattR

Shoes (not pictured): AE Strands, brown Thrifted by me

 

The SC set me back a bit, but it was still a great deal. Everything else was super cheap.

I code all day and need lots of screen real estate. It's either the 17 or get an external monitor to go with it, and I prefer to be mobile.

Too dark to tell. I couldn't even begin to tell that the bowtie was pink, for instance.
