I can't imagine it going with anything I own. If anyone has suggestions on shirts/jackets, please let me know, or PM if you can give it a better home.

Call me crazy, why not a plain blue shirt?

Nice haul. And that Oxxford is amazing!

Yeah, burgundy and gold should be fairly easy. Use wherever you might use a burgundy tie. The pattern is a large enough scale that you shouldn't run into many scale conflicts.

here goes my first Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Sweater: Margiela - Buffalo Exchange
Shirt: Gitman Vintage - Saks Off 5th
Chinos: RRL - Marshall's
Desert Boots - Aqua (?) - Discount
All for about $100 bigstar%5B1%5D.gif

I guess the consensus was not to critique fits posted here, but I do not like this. All those pieces might be fine on their own, but they do not pair well at all.

I think they fit together just fine- it's a rather straightforward mix of earthtones, with a white shirt. I think you're probably just reacting to the sweater, which is rather bold, and I could certainly see how somebody might not like it. I kinda do, but it certainly dominates an outfit, and I probably wouldn't buy it for myself.

Eh... just ignore me. It looks moderately better on my laptop monitor which has a better white balance than my desktop monitor (which looks yellow-ish). Still not a fan, but I guess it's ok.

No, just Savers and Thrift Town, I think. I just wanted to know if it was worth fighting the crowds. There is a Shetland Eddie Bauer sweater I have my eye on so I will probably stop by anyway.

do you guys grab Jack Victor? found a couple of SC today that seemed to be recent (2b, Dual Vent) in linen/wool/cotton blends..

I like Jack Victor and get it for myself if it fits. It has no flippability, so far as I know, which I think is to the loss of label snobs. Dig the wedding tie, but I always wear bow ties to weddings.

Found in LA? I don't doubt it.

I can just seem to make out T. Cruise where he obscured the label name.

I am about 20 minutes south of clearwater (the scientology capital of the world...).

 

No joke, its creepy. I will travel through downtown clearwater once in awhile, and they all look identical. White shirts, navy pants. Walk into a restaurant around there, and everyone looks at you if you don't match their cult uniform.

Yo, dudes. Snuck out today after work on my way home to visit with the in-laws, who are in town. Glad I did. Pics will have to wait.

- Barbera linen/cotton blend light blue and white striped shirt. Freaking killer, my size. Slight right cuff fray. Manageable if I roll the cuffs, but I may explore a more permanent solution. Shame because rest of the shirt is in mint condition.

- Saint Laurie solid blue single breast/flat front custom suit that fits me perfectly, but, more importantly, is that perfect shade of blue/gray I've been looking for for a while. (Now, I know Saint Laurie doesn't get much coverage here. But the quality, cut and fabric selection here isn't bad -- not Kiton, but much better than average)

- Faconnable made in Italy beige, blue and red (Like in Orgetorix's profile pic) SC, real horn, dual vent, throat latch, sweet lapel roll. Think Cantarelli but I need to confirm. Thing is really cool. Oh, my size.

- But it can't hold a candle to: VTG Daks for Barneys (USA made frown.gif ) houndstooth tweed, patch pockets, elbow patches, leather button holes and leather wrapped buttons. This is so. Unbelievably. Sick. My size, but for waist suppression. May consider getting it taken in. Oh, and there was a cool red PS in the pocket, so that was free.

- And last but not least: One pair each Barneys house brand and Saks house brand suede shoes. Barneys are walnut brouged cap toes and the Saks are chocolate brown what I believe the kids call "Chukkas" -- plain front blutchers with a more rounded toe. Both have rubberized soles and both are made in Italy, though I don't know by who (Yo, heel/label thread: Expect post soon). Now, I stuffed myself into them in the store and convinced myself they fit, thereby justifying the significantly higher than thrift pricetag. But if I'm honest, they're much closer to a 10, if not 9.5, and pretty narrow. Now, if any of you dudes in that size have some suede in my size, then lets do some business. But until then, I will be rocking them until further notice.

Oh yeah, and a decently bodied, nice colored Ike Behar tie that I'm already regretting.

Proud of myself that I passed on a PRL USA made flannel gray chalk stripe orphan, a too-far-gone PRL double breast navy pinstripe and RRL pinstripe trou (Reverse orphans?) that had some holes. Oh, and a Dormeuil tie, woven, light blue stripe. Mint condition. Having done a bit of research, seems like that was the right call. Anyone disagree?
