They're 82% wool, 10% angora rabbit hair and 8% cashmere. Weird combination, but it gives them a brilliant texture.

Edited to add: They're PRL made in Italy but I don't think it's Corneliani. Any ideas? Aside from the PRL tags, not much info. They're definitely made for the European market.

You have to wait in line for 5 days to get your kid into a particular school?

Well, at least you will look good doing it....

I passed up a lot of really great Kiton ties, but I am hoping to return with a vengeance if they have a great black Friday or after Christmas sale. 30% off the clearance priced ties is pretty good, but we might see a 40%, or possibly even a 50% off day sometime between now and the weeks following Christmas. Same goes for Off Saks, although their tie selection (brands and quantity) at the location near me is not as good as NM Last Call.

Picked up a pretty nice silver PRL tie at lunch.

thanks, obamacare...

This glen plaid tweed suit and a similar one (same size, slightly different material) have been in a local thrift shop for a while. They're in excellent shape but look dated:

I didn't recognize the label when I first saw it:

Then I did a bit of searching and learned all about Morty Sills.

 

It's a tiny bit tight across the chest for me but on the bright side, it's more encouragement to lose weight. There's also the eBay route. Thoughts?

One tie, T&A, looks new, might be part of a limited edition run, Paisley Design, shade over 3½ wide, 56" long. Not my style, available.

Is ebay seller "leoni-zamboni" on styleforum? I am looking to pick up a pair of his shoes and would like a discount.

So do you just use The Method every now and again, or is there something else I can be doing?

Thanks in advance fellers.

One of my first posts on SF was about how to keep from staining the knot of my tie with skin oils. I started a new thread, so it was out there for all to see.

Every now and then, when I'm starting to feel pretty good about myself and need to be taken down a peg or two, I read the responses to that thread.

Yeah, this is Zegna cloth. Tessuto means cloth/fabric.

All righty, then. I'll rethrift it.

Thanks, all! smile.gif

Hit up 6 stores today but only found stuff a 1 of them, first up, Loro Piana shirt, size large, needs the treatment, available.

Womans DB with HUGE mop's that I was going to harvest for a linen DB blazer I grabbed from TDP, but now I'm thinking the buttons might be too big. facepalm.gif


And this, pristine Willis and Geiger waxed cotton type jacket. The last one I sold went for just under $100 and it was an ugly beat to shit 90's parka. I've high hopes for this one. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
