Wait, really? I have Dior squares. Hell, I just gave one to my daughter to clean her room with. I assumed they were the proverbial Dior tie, but without any of that valuable canvas liner.

Maybe I'm wrong.... it was $4 and being that I just sold the other item very similar.... can anyone chime in?

 

I'm not saying they are Kiton or anything but I think $25-30 for it easy and maybe more due to the logo.

My god! Those shells! fistbump.gif

 

 

The measurements look to be a 40. This is my size too but knowing my luck the BOC length is prolly like 31. I hope you get a good price for it!

 

41 ish, but with functional cuffs at 24", can't really be shortened.

 

Off to umpire a little baseball 4:45pm start, game time temp 78 degrees...

Is this busy? Would it have violated fewer rules if the collar weren't cutaway? Would it have looked better with gray trou and suede shoes? I think we all know the answers to all of the above. But what fun would any of that have been? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Deets:
SC: Canali army green twill weave with rust and burgundy overcheck (yes, my whitebalance sucks. I'm sorry. Sue me. Thrifted by me
Shirt: BB purple label white with mustard and blue windowpane, thrifted by me
Tie: BB cashmere blend houndstooth, bought by me on SF B&S
Square: unknown, hand-rolled, matte silk
Trou: BB Barbera Canonico, traded with a dude here
Shoes: Alden shell shortwings, from Catside with a huge IOU.

Busy? Yes, but I really like it. That tie is amazing. It's a bit incongruent as far as formality is concerned (shirt/tie), but overall, I do sincerely like the colors.

I have been looking for a pair of chelsea boots for a while so it was a good day for me.
I dont know a lot about this brand but they look to be pretty decent quality and they arent over embellished like most of the other things I come across at Winners.

Love the boots and the price is unbelievable (to boot biggrin.gif )

My wife looked at me tonight and said "Uh oh, I see beer an a page open to eBay!" Anyway, I was trying to win about 6 auctions on some Hermés ties and I ended up winning one. It wasn't my favorite and got to my highest bid in the last seconds, but I pulled through to get it. Anyway, I might sell it as I'm not sure it's a color scheme that will work for me. Tell me what you think:

Re: Christian Dior pocket squares/scarves....why not? I have a couple that I paid next to nothing and they're silk, handrolled and in colour schemes that worked for me. I don't use them often, but it's not like I'm going to advertise the Christian Dior that's printed on them biggrin.gif

Haha, that's why I only post BIN auctions or auctions that are going to end in under an hour...I'm afraid I'm going to blow someone's future brag! satisfied.gif

EDIT: Such as this one:

Does anyone know anything about this brand? Is the quality decent? I dont know if I would have paid over $200 for them but for $50 they are most certainly worth it.

One of the more frustrating aspects of my day is knowing that by the time I can check this thread, all the good stuff has been dibbed multiple times over.

I guess I should feel good that I don't have greater frustrations....but here I am.

Being 7 hours ahead of the thread, I can honestly say that I feel your pain.

I've offered these up to a couple of people via PM, but I've had no takers as of yet. Therefore, I'll offer them here:

I have a pair of NWOT, unhemmed flat front khakis by PRL. They're a size 32 and would probably accomodate up to a size 33ish. If anyone wants them, you can have them for what I got them on eBay + shipping. PM me if you're interested!

You mean you were going to trade them to me, right?


Anyway, on the dior square, I get it that nobody needs to know. That's how I use mine. My surprise was on the value.

And: thanks for all the compliments, guys. When I first started, I needed to learn fit and to up my shoe game. Trouser length debate aside, I've got that down now. Then I needed to learn color match, especially with mixing pocket squares in. Now my struggle is with the rules about mixing formal and informal shirts, which ties are appropriate with which sport coats. Those rules seem overly fussy to me, plus -- and I say this as a guy with waaaaaay too many shirts -- who has that many shirts that you can get color match AND both french and button cuffs?? But hopefully I'm getting better, if incrementally, while still keeping my whimsical/peacock tendencies. (Again, after all, this is supposed to be fun!).

Love it! I watched the entire clip and, translating, my wife said "do what you'll do!" I put that on the same page as "set it and forget it!"

That is to say that she has no idea why I spend so much time buying and discussing clothing, but nevertheless she gets that I enjoy it! I even mentioned that I was surprised when she suggested we go to Vienna on Monday early to hit some thrift stores. Needless to say, I'm going to take her up on her offer!

Passed on two Corneliani SC's that were likely early 2000's.

Great to see you're still in the game! Nice finds!!

Huh. I have a good friend who lived in San Francisco for a long time and have never heard those.

Seriously? Wow. Never knew what ARC stood for....

Seriously though, I'm over it. Good learning experience for me and a lot of on-lookers, I did pick up another very interesting Ralph Lauren find today though. Will post deets in a while.

That collection looks really interesting. Tons of cool stuff. Wonder if it'll affect the value of the true vintage stuff any.
