I thought they looked real nice and fit great on my slender frame but I think we both proved their terrible quality.

Won't be able to post this one for over a week, so no popcorn yet, but I'll try to get the last 300+ haul up.

Still in school, and I have a bit of swd wardrobe built up =)

Ray, if only you had gotten pizza with me like we planned!

As much as I love clothing, woman comes first.

Alright, so after taking some stuff back today, of course I decided to just take a quick look around.

 

First off, these

Ecco Track II Gore Tex boots in my size. Whoever had these before must have worn them a hand full of times at best, soles are barely worn. They were pricey for a thrift ($30) but since they're probably ending up in my closet, I guess I can't complain. Boots to wear during the cold week this winter.

 

Trad-ition...

Didn't realize it needs a bit of the treatment till I got it home. Grabbed it with a few people here in mind.

 

This rolled out on a cart and everyone ignored it. What, no one likes waffles?

Apparently NIB and still wrapped up with warranty, instructions, etc. For $10, this bachelor was pretty stoked to find an easy bake oven for cinnamon rolls.

 

Then came this...

 

Whodat? (Click to show)

Is this older or diffusion or? Seems it's one of several Boateng labels.

 

Content

 

Details 42R

 

Ran out of light to get a good shot of the exterior. Navy, 3 button, dual vents, pick stitching, pockets are also fuchsia lined and basted shut.

 

Main issue I found (at home of course) is that inside one of the sleeves, near the shoulder, the lining is torn. Can that be mended in some way? I imagine most tailors don't stock that color lining material haha.

 

 

Also not pictured due to light constraints- A ZegnaSport jacket in xl that actually fits me more or less. I think I'll try and make it work. Pics of that tomorrow.

 

Thought I'd end up walking out with the money from the returns. Ended up spending double. (flips desk brain)

WOAH, that OB available??? I think it's RTW main line, with O2 being the diffusion.

... okay, I need to be hitting the pavement whenever I get a chance. Seems like stuff's coming out. Maybe I'll stop by a Marshalls next... wink.gif

Today, two stores:

Precursor-to-skeet-blanket & Vineyard Vines reds (to hold and sell in the spring, unless anyone is interested in them)
2012-10-08_23-54-43_45.jpg

J. Crew leather jacket, recent, XXL... not sure what to do with this. Might fit more like an XL-XXL than a true XXL. Pretty nifty jacket, great shape. If anyone's interested hit me up, otherwise it'll probably go into my closet. My other jacket is a soft lambskin one, this one is more "tough leather jacket" style.

2012-10-08_23-47-26_754.jpg

I saw a mess of shoes in mens for once... as usual, nothing worth looking at, lots of barbs stuck straight through leather... you get the drift, till WAIT WHAT?! Alden 929's. Burgundy calfskin wingtip balmorals (in the British sense!)

Yeah, they're in rough shape... no laces... but that scratch on the toe I think will look okay with enough work and polish, and the rest can be cleaned up pretty well. Soles are actually in pretty good shape, original soles & heels. First Alden-branded shoes I've seen in Columbus... and they're 12D. Because they're on the Aberdeen, they fit me.

The interesting thing is, the very first Aldens I ever found were 928's - this same exact shoe in black, which are still in my closet. I feel like I'm hitting for the cycle! And they were only a buck 99! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The comp. tag of that Boateng is a recent Chester Barrie, so my vote goes for RTW line.

I usually hit the ties last and this particular gw puts the ties on a lower rack so I have to bend over in order to sort through them. As I'm bending over I hear the unmistakable tearing sound of me ripping the seat of my pants. I'm not talking a tiny rip either, the rip occurred from the bottom of the belt loop to almost the bottom of the crotch. So here I am in goodwill with my left cheek exposed. Any sane person would have scooted out of the goodwill since needless to say this scenario is pretty embarrassing. However, I found a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and was not about to leave the store without my purchase. There was only one person working the cash register so I had to wait in line for a good ten minuets with about a half dozen people waiting in line behind me. There was no way I could hide or even conceal the fact that I had split my trousers and I could feel everyone behind me staring at my buttock. Having said all that, here are the pictures of the Ferragamo's.

WTF are people thinking:

RG- nuff said.

 

Overrated / overpriced Brands:

Burberry- well..

Hugo Boss-definantly

Armani-soooooooo much.

Zegna- not on a cold day in hell.

 

 

 

Underrated or underpriced:

Canali- man, you are correct.

 

while alot of brands survive on branding alone (ARMANI) , Zegna make fine products ( i have E. Zegna. and Z. Zegna)   but CANALI would have to be the most underrated maker.

and BOSS, is a "fashion brand". so no need for finery. burberry could be cheaper.
