Hey bud, you know there's a thing called Photoshop, right...

Okay, I'm an idiot. To be fair, I'm technically not a Fucking idiot though. I saw it before I went to a meeting and it looked fairly authentic, so I didn't pay much attention. You damn kids and your photoshop! biggrin.gif:happy:

Fucking, Austria is a real town and it's become a tourist attraction from what I understand. Unfortunately, it's pronounced slightly different in German. The wikipedia page says that they've had to reinforce their village signs as they were stolen on such a regular basis. There was an article in the paper about a German brewery that was making a beer called "Fucking Hell," as hell in German means "light." It was a light ale that was supposed to be a play on words. Fucking got upset as it wasn't made in their city.

Below is a clip where Graham Norton calls the tourism board of Upper Austria and asks questions regarding a visit to Fucking. It's awkward and you feel bad for the person that's really trying to help, but it's also hilarious.

Alright so I never had a chance to post this on the weekend, but this was a find for me - I don't even know if it would be flippable if I wanted, but I like it!

 

Armani Collezioni Sportcoat

Althought it doesn't look it... it's actually a dark green in person... at least in proper lighting

These are the two Kiton's that were on ebay, they ended this morning. They were listed as 52, but no mention of Euro sizing. Both listed by the same person and ended within 4 minutes of each other, thought maybe they would go cheaper because of the size listed, maybe so:

 

This one was mentioned on Putthison and had 46 bids with a final price of $406.99

This one was not mentioned, had 24 bids and went for $214.27.

Guess Putthison adds a little juice to the bidding. (unless nobody likes brown)

 

On a side note, did pick up a SC, made in Italy for Harold's, I was in a hurry and thought it said Harrod's the London shop, lightweight silk/wool blend, 39R fits me (except as always the sleeves are too long) but happy with it, since in Jan I was having trouble wearing 42R were too tight, thank Paleo diet. (Guess the 39R is slightly shorter than the 40S) Harold's had a store here in Phoenix that opened in 1994. midwest chain went BK. 2008.

So I'd consider today to be pretty good. Hit 3 stores and the first two sucked. Everyone and their brother was out today. Hit my "last resort" store on the way home which usually has nothing. Found these staring me in the face. Didn't even know what the hell they were till I got home and did some digging. They just looked and felt crazy nice. These are definitely on par with the pair of the Sugar Cane Hawaii jeans I picked up in Japan a month ago. These are from Hartford Denim Company. Brand spankin new. Never worn. Cost: standard thrift store jeans price. 36x 35. These are keepers unless someone is super persistent.

Grail? I think so. cool.gif

Meh day. Passed on a Chester Barrie suit that had a small hole in the inner thigh and the jacket needed to be relined. Picked up a BB shirt for the first time in a long time. BB Country Club. XL. Reserved for papa long legs for now.
