Grabbed a nice PRL tie for myself.

Left a cotton plaid PRL tie. Christmassy so I thought about kopping but nah. Saw several Canali shirts at 9.50 a pop. Would've grabbed for myself, but not to flip. One fray sportswear one, a nice sportswear one my size but a meh pattern, and a straight blue. The big heartbreaker was an older label (but new looking) BB GF suit. Would've snagged for myself, but just 1-2 sizes too small

UGH!

Its seriously dry as fuck here. Everything I find seems to have something wrong with it, its driving me insane.

 

Heres my NO GO's for today....

 

1. Freeman's Sporting Club - Casual Shirt.

I shouldve picked this up, I was just being stupid because I didnt find anything else. Im gonna go back for this on Friday.

 

2. Bonobos - Chinos in Cream White, 34x36

Looked kinda dirty, wasnt sure if any of it was stains and I didnt wanna bother.

 

3. Hamilton for Barneys New York - Dress Shirt

This was actually in very good condition.

 

4. J.Crew Striped Vintage Oxford from Spring 2012

Dont know why I left this. I think im just getting picky now.

 

5. Etro - Navy Blue Suit Jacket/Sport Coat with Ticket Pocket

After further inspection, the lining looked like it had been repaired in several places. Way too obvious. Didnt wanna deal with it.

 

6. AND THE BIGGEST FUCKING DISAPPOINTMENT...A Recent Ermenegildo Zegna 15mil15 Orphan.

Couldnt find the damn pants and when I opened it up....splitting on the lining down the middle.

 

7. APC New Cure H

The size tag was missing so couldnt tell but they were fucking tiny. Jackass wanted $33 for them. I passed. Even though I know could flip them for at least double.

Imma sleep on this one.

 

8. +J (Jil Sander for Uniqlo) Navy Sport Coat

Put this on hold and I think imma pull the trigger on this one. Cant go wrong at $19

 

9. Allen Edmonds Bradley Split Toe Shoes in Brown.

I dont know, price wasnt all that right, they wanted $25

 

10. RECENT Valentino Roma - Velvet Trousers.

I believe these were womans, but im not sure, it had a slight flare. Didnt even inspect them. All I know is that they were the recent Gold on Black label. weird.

 

Cant wait till this dry spell goes away...until then...a photo to remind me of better days....

 

1000

Ah, but it's completely optional! And I can dress in suits, jeans, and tweed in successive days!

I'd say yes. And consider the source.

You can try, but you're already too late.


Four stores today. One trad belt for me, one pair Canali light gray flat front wool trou in 38 x 32, one skeet blanket for RIDONCULOUSLY cheap, one HT overcoat that's at the cleaners to see if a stain will come out, one Faconnable madras short sleeve shirt for me. I feel like I forgot something. But I think that's it.
