Hey there, any size 14's interested in brown snakeskin Florsheim laceups?  Slightly higher than thrift prices so I passed, but can proxy -- PM if interested.

It seems like they finally figured out to run a proper outlet store decisions.gif

Definitely should.  I only picked up pieces in my size + two BoO ties (I took the last of those, but I'm debating keeping them, so if you want them, they're yours).

Hope this post isn't bad form but I'm new at this kind of thing.

I'm wondering if this might be suitable for S.S?

My first Etro ever and it's laughingly sized Large but fits me like a Small/Medium. The collar shows signs of sitting on a shelf for a long time but the shirt is otherwise immaculate. The intended beneficiary has indicated a size that might be somewhat larger that this shirt, at least in sleeve and overall length. I still have time and can always toss a tie in a box but I was hoping to do something a bit better than that.

The medium sized Ike behind it was just for me to wear as a beater. The sleeves are ridiculously short at around a 31" length but I'd wear it rolled up with denim. MOP buttons!

I'm not convinced it's fake. The lines are wrong and the take looks off, but I have seen woven, unlined, untipped Hermes ties (in the Hermes store). If it's cheap and you like it i.e. would wear it, I'd buy it for myself!!

Hello from Dublin! Here on my honeymoon, and the wife is currently occupied, so I thought I'd check in.

OxFams are everywhere. Checked out one yesterday with little result, but when I see another, I may stop in again. The bug is strong.

One thing I thought was hilarious - It isn't TJ Maxx here, it's TK Maxx (wtf? Wikipedia has an explanation, but meh.). Had to stop in just b/c it was funny to me. Whereas we have PRL hanging out, they have TM Lewin. Little things like that (albeit not at all surprising) make me chuckle. Saw some Duchamp, but shit was over 50 euros. Onward and upward.

Congratulations and have a great time! TK Maxx is also in Germany and Poland. I've been to one in Germany and have seen the serious discounts that they have at the end of seasons. I mean racks of clothes marked down to €1 and €2. It was really weird.


I'm cross posting this to get some advice. I don't think I did a great job of mixing colors and patterns, so any advice is helpful. I picked the wool tie up yesterday and I love it. It's my second wool by this brand and I can't find out much about them. They were found about 6 months apart in different stores, but both were in mint condition. A quick google search shows only ads from the 1940s. Anyway, any advice on how to make this a bit better as far as color/pattern would be appreciated!

Definitely a lot going on with this outfit. I can't say I love the tie.  Maybe a gray would work better?

I probably just wanted to wear the tie, but as I left the house I thought a solid navy might have been better. I have a gray tie, but I thought it would look too light against the blue shirt. The small pattern on the jacket throws me and I ended up with too many small scale patterns.

Thanks for the help! The good thing is that when you make a mistake, there's always a tomorrow.

I quite like the combo, I don't find it too much to the eyes if you wear this on the weekends. But maybe because I just like bold patterns.

BTW very nice rope shoulders on the jacket. Available? biggrin.gif

Thanks! Next time, I think I'll try it with just a white pocket square and a solid tie to see how it works.

The jacket is bespoke by Lamber J. Hofer in Vienna. It absolutely ranks up there with the nicest things I've seen. The current owner does both bespoke clothes and costumes for theater and film. They actually made the pieces for Seven Years in Tibet and Gangs of New York.

Unavailable, I'm afraid. biggrin.gif
