Have a really long usb cable, or 2.You have a camera that accepts a wireless file transmitter (but if you had that item, you wouldn't be asking haha).

Totes gonna try this. I already paid for a 2 year membership to Photobucket, but this could be worth it if it saves me time.

IMO, these kinds of post should REALLY be kept to PM if they are directed to a single person. Post your stuff to brag about here but don't put asking prices or links to ebay or B&S. nest.gif

Fits me perfectly in the waist but a tad too short in the legs, so available.

I've been looking for a pair of seersucker pants for an upcoming wedding. Question for the group - is it ok to cuff a pair of seersuckers? I would assume so, but haven't been seeing any in my search. Will likely wear them with navy sportcoat and brown dress shoes (AE Kenilworths probably). So, cuffs/seersuckers? yea/nea?

I think that would be the case if he was an old man, since he's not I think it works.

Some stuff I picked up the last two days.I made a total noob mistake though because I was in a hurry. Both BB blazers have damage to the liners, which I didn't realize until I got home. The herringbone is salvagable but the black one I'm going to harvest the buttons on. Wah wahhhhh. musicboohoo[1].gif
BB golden fleece custom made. Working 2 button cuffs, single vent, 2 button with a cool liner. Light wear to the liner around the collar.



Super old BB golden fleece, going to be used for button harvest.




Awesome crushed velvet smoking jacket, size 46, by State of Maine, made in the USA. This thing is bause!



My wife found this French Connection made in the USA sleeve-less dress thing. I thought all their stuff was Chinese made, go figure.


And my favorite find, Prince Evolution, Prince 1999, John Lennon Live in NYC, Billy Ocean Tear Down These Walls, Grateful Dead double LP

Authenticity check.  Anyone know?

 

And nice find with those Persol 2720's CottonDockers.  I bought those off ebay in the spring and absolutely love them.  Those look like they are in better condition then mine too!

Re-attaching a sleeve lining is really not that expensive.

Some notable things from the weekend. All unavailable.

 

My first find of pocket squares.

T&A shirt with a label that I haven't seen before, hopefully not fake?

Didn't pick this up Henry Poole bespoke because they wanted a lot for it. Seems like a 42R and I can proxy for someone if they want.

Picked up a couple things today.

700

 

Nothing special, just some LL Beans. It's nice to find stuff for myself for once, though.

 

Then I found this Lacoste Golf Polo sz 5. Everything looks legit to me (MoP, made in france, croc looks good) but this is the first Lacoste thing I've picked up. The croc was on the sleeve, I assumed because it was Lacoste Golf. Can anyone confirm it's real?

Not sure if this applies to lacoste golf, but look for another tag on the inside of the shirt about where your hip would be. Does the tag say "DEVANLAY"?
