First off, a big THANK YOU
to both barrelntrigger
for sending some things along. bnt proxied me some of those awesome LVC 501s and GM hooked me up with some florsheim imperials that are now my new favourite shoes. Both of them are stand-up guys.
It had been awhile since I got out but I had a nice day yesterday.
I have some Tom Ford sunglasses that are my prescription pair and I'm working with someone here to hook up with some wayfarers but I found some Ray-Ban Gatsby sunglasses. I believe these are from the late 1970s to late 1980s.
I usually go for something more streamlined but I'm oddly attracted to these so I may just keep. Temporarily unavailable.

Next up, RG embroidery madness for ebay. Tons of embroidered paisley that actually has a a striped effect because they alternate in bands of light blue and dark blue thread. I can't help thinking about the hands of those poor Indian children after all that sewing.
Harry Rosen Made In Italy merino sweater and some nice fall/spring gloves. Things I've been needing so keepers.
I see tons of Harris Tweeds here. Perhaps I should be picking up for flipping but they all seem pretty pedestrian. Except for the odd one, like this one. Tagged 107 cm N (must be European) and carrying the Harris Tweed badge. Unvented. I can provide measurements but closest approximation is 43 or 44. BOC is about 31 inches. Available for cost plus shipping.Close up of this fabric. (Click to show)
