It will be radio-ized, and there'll be stills with the piece. I'll post it when we finish it up in a week or two.

Need any photographs of the outing YoungAmerican? (my profession)

There's not a lot of MC there. Mostly stuff that Japanese vintage dealers are into - vintage military, outdoorsy stuff, denim, that kind of thing. I've gotten some good stuff there over the years, though.

As others stated, these Brionis are pretty recent. The older ties have the gold chain. Very nice haul!

You can find real shearling jackets, of excellent quality (Sawyer, etc.) for well below $500. Now if the style of the jacket makes it a "got to have", then reason and value go right out the window, But, at least for me, that wouldn't be the case with this coat.
Check some of these.

Yeah. I agree. I was hoping to get it for less than $80.

Picked up a few Charles Tyrwhitt shirts knowing they would need "the collar treatment".  Do they sell that Oxi-Clean stuff in stores or do I have to stay up late and wait for the infomercial with the dead guy?  I've never seen it in stores...but wasn't really looking for it.

 

EDIT: also, does someone have the stain removal guide link handy?  I need to work on a variety of spots, on a variety of fabrics.  Merci.

Yes, as said above. I get mine from Walmart.

Torn at pant pocket, looks like cheap fix

Second one:

Has something going on in the taint region, similar to pilling on a sweater?

I did pick up 2 Hickey suits as well that I'll post up later.

Don't know if there's a technical term, but I like 'crotch shred.' I wouldn't pick that up / buy it from a flipper, but others may disagree.

First pair of men's Tod's that I've found. I love suede and they're my size, it's just a shame that I don't really wear black.

Few more finds. I know Filson stuff doesn't move that well but I've never seen a Filson western shirt and this thing is basically like new. Size L and available.

Don't normally pick up BB stuff but this XL patchwork was NWT and I just think it's dope. Wish it was a small because I'd rock it.

Harvie & Hudson 16.5" available.

Turnbull & Asshole 15.5".

More for the SW&D crowd but a sweet chambray Steven Alan popover. Not available.

One more Burberry tie. Pretty stoked about finding 3 Burberry ties to add to the rotation this weekend. Keeper. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also have this NWOT Eton formal shirt that's available. 15 x 32 slim fit. Doesn't have buttons because it's made for those things that you use for formal wear. Someone remind me what those are called.

I agree. If I see that, back on the rack it goes.
