Easy said it better than me. Works on everything.Except ties.

Then there's Easy, Randomore, OCooney, Spoo, Mex (who totally bailed me out when I forgot my cufflinks 2500 miles away, bought ME coffee AND refused cashish for the links!), Shiny and many, many other people I'm sure I'm forgetting for awesome trades/hookups lately .
Next is: I forgot to brag about the Harris Tweed overcoat I passed on. It was really, really nice except for what looked like a coffee stain on the front. Plus they wanted double the usual price for a coat. Still reasonable, but only if I can get the stain off. Not reasonable to go experimenting with the method, though.
Finally, here is my catch-up photo from recent trips PLUS my brag from today. Everything with an asterisk was from JUST TODAY, and unless noted, stuff is available.
Lets start slow and build, shall we?

Detailed, crappy white balance shots of the two awesome tweeds
But that's nothing. Been had a LOT of Zegna shirts.*
Frontmost four in left column are (front/bottom to back/top) RLPL, RLPL, Burberry, Burberry. Otherwise, all Zegna, all the time. 16 total. Most older label but in impeccable shape -- no collar point fray at all. One su misura. Same donor, and LARGE. 18.5+ neck. Store also gave me an exclusive sneak peek at some stock ready to hit the floor. Same donor has at least eight (8) Zegna suits. I can probably get a decent deal, but they're all in the 56 size range. (yes, that's US sizing).
The moral, children, is this: If you are, or know, a very large man and want basically a closet full of the sweet, sweet nectar of an Italian made shirt, or might be interested in having me go back for the suits, get at me.
And I'm spent.
