The ACT is the one with a science section. It requires no actual knowledge of science, you just have to be able to decipher charts and graphs.

Huh...wow, I would have done much better if there was a science section back in the day. I think I only had a 1350 or so.

If its any comfort, the OxBridge applications are a bitchkitty. I started looking at them for my son (second grade isn't too early to start looking, right?) and the reason they don't look at your grades is because they think American grades are hyperinflated, ergo they expect you to demonstrate competence in your application.

They added a third test.

I said " did I make a mistake" -- meaning, is the Corneliani I picked up a lower line?

Pics later tonight.

I think Cornlieiani ID is slightly less expensive. Usually has plastic buttons, right? Whatever the case, it sells for (in my experience) about the same as regular Corneliani, at least in regards to shirts.

I haven't caught up with everything yet, just a couple of pages (and mine are set to somewhere around 50/page). It looks like there were some really cool things picked up, especially by the usual suspects (Wes, Brian, et al.). I'm going to get back to PMs as well, sorry for any delays!

Moving on...

I appreciate the thought and I would be completely interested had I not found this on Friday...



Pretty close to Bavarian, so thanks again for the thought smile.gif

Tonight my wife and I went to the Muse concert in Vienna. Great concert, though the opening band was awful and I'm too old to tolerate the standing section by now. Anyway, my wife took the day off from work and I took off at noon so we could get there a bit early and hit a store of two.

A couple of ties....

I left a pretty recent Gucci because they wanted €21 (!) for it.

Any hat guys here?

I found something I've been seeking for awhile...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Borsalino that is in great condition, but I haven't had a chance to try to date it yet. Definitely a bit older I believe.

NOS Ottmar Reich hat. I left a beautiful Lock & Co Homburg that was in mint condition, but it was tagged at €45 and it was huge on me. I probably could have listed it and easily doubled up, but I was in a bit of a rush so I sadly left it.

That is true although I assume it would be harder to come across that on a forum like this than what people are posting on Facebook although I probably should change my username

Nice that you found a Borsalino that fits you. I'm still on the lookout for one that'll fit my giant (XL) head happy.gif

I thrifted a S Ricci shirt a while back with the same buttons.

A weird quirk about this shirt is that it doesn't have holes to insert collar stays. However the stays are in there sealed up. Does yours? I hope they don't ever break.

Here's the XL Pendleton jacket I saw earlier. I can go back tomorrow morning.

Should I have picked up this Dunn & Co Harris Tweed? It was a hair too big in the shoulders and would need a lot of tailoring in the waist/back and arm slimming for me to use it. Are these pretty easy to trade/sell on here?

Nice look. IIRC, don't you work in IT? Do your co-workers give you much shit about your clothes?
post #54538 of 125416

I would definitely have grabbed the Dunn & Co

Definitely. You could easily make some money on it, I would think.

 

Wait. What size was it?
