RLPL 100% linen, and PRL made in the USA plaid linen. The PRL just need to be hemmed and they will be prefect, no tapering necessary. Funny thing, the PRL were more expensive then the purple label. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I came out with enough bread to take my wife to a nice dinner and I also picked up a sick vintage plaid double breasted hounds-tooth top coat I'd been eying on the bay for a couple weeks. Made the dude a low offer and he jumped on it. Hand made in England. Pics when it arrives.

Did we chit chat about these size 28!!!! pants before or do they fit you? stirpot.gif

So, this is very much of the "discount", as opposed to "thrift" category but I thought it was notable:

at Century 21 grabbed a Brooks Brothers 1818 Fitzgerald in grey, from the full-canvassed, Golden Fleece line ("made in the USA", so this was done by Southwick, I believe). Vitale Barberis Canonico wool. No flaws.

$1600 down to $499. biggrin.gif

My wife dropped the camera and it is now out of commission, so I'm using an older camera that I forgot how to use. Anyway, a few things for me today...

A couple of wool ties for another member...



Wool/silk scarf for myself (?). I need to add this to my list of things to leave behind. I have far too many wool and/or silk scarves, as does my wife.

Ludwig Reiter shoes. They appear black, but they're as dark of a brown as you can get before you cross over to black. Terrible photo.



This one is for me. It's a local defunct ceramik company and I like a lot of their vases. I have a small collection and I like to add to it.



I took a chance on this wallet. I liked that it said made in France, but the company doesn't produce Hermés-priced goods. Most of the wallets I saw on their site were in the €100-300 range. Still, when we go on vacation I usually have a lot of cash, so I'll make due with this one until I find something better.

Finally, a D&G polo. Nothing special, going to eBay, but can anyone confirm it's legit? I found the same shirt online, but the hologram is missing, so I questioned it a bit. Tags in the spoiler.

What I end up doing is uploading them to flickr first. It's pretty annoying.

You guys should use Tapatalk on your smart devices. Awesome interface and pics upload in cake-like fashion. It's worth the couple bucks.

I keep hearing that app thrown around but I've never looked into it. I'll take a look at it to find out exactly what it does.

On a completely unrelated note, Austria will officially not earn a medal in the Olympics. It's the worst performance by Austria in around 50 years. shog[1].gif

And yet I still pick things up:
