They make the toe kee tow collabs in tweed? happy.gif

There's as good a likelihood of there being Belstaff leather jackets there as XS and S size To Ki To pieces.  Unless I'm crazy, I'd imagine those were the most popular sizes.  More than likely you'll see L and XL To Ki To...and probably not the high dollar tweed jammers.   

 

The one I'd really be after is the Camo Sapper...but that's the fattest of all chances in hell. 

 

 

And here's one of the newest tweed pieces just to whet your whistle.

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada. Both my wife and I work for government so we both get tomorrow off as a day in lieu. The best thing is the kids still have school! I hope to hit a few spots tomorrow.

In the spirit of what Hansderhund started (not the baking, though I do have a small income stream from baking artisan bread) I thought I'd share a slice of life from where I live. Spoilered, of course. But if you want to see a man take his life into his hands, click below.

BTW, hansderhund, lovely pictures. I was in Austria and points farther east almost 20 years ago and loved it. We have friends in Berlin who want us to visit so who knows, I might be in your neck of the woods at some point in the near future.

We had an early snow this year and winter has definitely arrived. censored.gif
This was last night at the Safeway. Not my car, the guy I parked in front of.

Every November we have the Canadian Finals Rodeo. Tons of cowboys from across North America attend, and I've seen Australians and Kiwis too. I took a few of my kids today.

I've been to rodeos here and in Montana. Great stuff if you ever get the chance to attend. Big cities usually have a lot of glitz and fireworks (as per the video) but in small towns it can be a more by the seat of the pants. There appear to be less controls there and I see more injuries at these kinds.

We saw this today: a guy who really went through the ringer on a bull.

Best rodeo movie ever: Junior Bonner, by Sam Peckinpah starring Steve McQueen. Fantastic opening sequence. The movie really catches the spirit of what these guys are all about.

And lest you think I live with hicks, we have a great arts scene and I've even managed to thrift Brioni. nod[1].gif

Picked these up tonight. Not exactly GW prices, but I didn't mind since I'm going to keep one, and the other should do okay on the bay. I did get them to knock $20 off the total - this being the only GW I usually bargain at because it's so expensive.

Canali, keeping:

100% Cashmere Ermenegildo Zegna SC. This thing is pretty badass, and if it wasn't a tad too large I'd keep it:

That Zegna's really pretty, suited.

I picked up a Chester Barrie 100% cashmere SC that looks very similar and went unsold on eBay.  Vented, quarter lined...definitely not dated looking.  Maybe because I didn't get the PTO bump?

I'll start with this.

These are the labels you're looking for...if'n they aren't fake pieces like these. Seriously, if the YSL was actually real, it was the most paper thin POS tie I've ever felt. Cremiux ties are more substantial.

I was skeptical about the pattern but I figured it's starting to get cold up here and not having any flannels in my wardrobe will be a problem.

Thread is absolute fire this weekend. Nice job guys! Had a good day myself, not on the level of Kitons and Magnannis but still pretty decent for only one store. All available, for those curious

I like the idea of getting a glimpse of others' "real world." How many months of the year do you guys receive snow? I'd love to see the countryside in your area!

If you ever have the chance to come over again, let me know! I'd be happy to show you or anyone else around and can get to many cities relatively easy. That's an open invitation to thrift over here, though I have no cool secret locations smile.gif

I was afraid of that. I have two Chester Barries that I listed tonight and I'd love to wear either if they were my size. I have hope that the green tweed will go over well as it's already gotten a lot of attention.

I'm hoping that isn't my fate with this cashmere CB. I bought it for me but the seller messed up the measurements and I decided to resell it rather than return it. It's really the softest thing I've ever touched.
