post #56116 of 102803

This just in....I think someone might possibly be receiving their Secret Santa package today. Who could it be??? Whoever you are, please feel free to open it when it arrives, and share. I can't take this suspense any more. I have no problem waiting to open gifts from others, but I hate waiting for someone to receive a gift from me.

Considering they're a $500 reproduction of $20 bundeswehr sneakers, I don't think it's the shoes that are being abused.

Close -- CdG SHIRT. I wanted to give a big shout-out to either dub cee badass or 42xg-eewhiz-oneniner but I cleared my PMs and can't remember what's what. shog[1].gif

 

Also, I don't want my dislike of those shoes to distract from how awesome that CdGS shirt is.

Sick finds as usual Xenos... I swear you find large quantities of excellent stuff. I suppose that's just Los Angeles where the streets are paved with finely tailored suits.

I'll check, but it was maybe two weeks ago. I forgot about it, then came across the pics on my phone and figured I'd post it. I think it was in the $40 range.

And a few more items:

Zegna blue wool suit; double-vented; size 46R(US)

Caruso for Barneys wool/linen SC; double-vented; surgeon's cuffs; size 42L

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


And I'm assuming all the below are SCs and not orphans as the details, e.g., patch pockets lend themselves more to the former than the latter. Also, scoured the store for pants and none were to be found.

Borrelli navy SC; double-vented; surgeon's cuffs; size 40R

It'd be cheaper and you would have more tows in case of emergency. 

I pay $7 or 14 every 6 months for emergency towing via my liability insurance. (GEICO). It's not as expensive as AAAs annual membership. Although AAA gives you free maps (!). I've never had to call their tow service (knocks on wood), so I can't comment on the service yet.

Well that's what I have currently. Their service is great and such. The problem is.... They will tow you anywhere you want to go as long as its no further than the closest participating mechanic or dealer. Where I broke down (50 miles from home) they would tow me anywhere I wanted as long as it was less than 3 miles away. Since I didn't know anyone in that 3 mile radius, it was off to the dealership. But hey, I was just happy to be out of harms way. The shoulder of a busy interstate at night is petrifying.

Been lurking for the past month and was really impressed by all the awesome finds so I started hitting up local thrifts. I found some pretty awesome stuff (Brioni shirt, Orvis blazer, Hickey Freeman blazer) but most of it wasnt my size facepalm.gif

 

Here is some of the ties I picked up. I took multiple photos, but I have no idea how to upload it the way you guys do. These are available and I am pretty reasonable.

 

Hickey Freeman tie, 100% silk

Robert Talbott tie

Christian Dior skinny tie

Oscar dela Renta skinny tie, 100% cashmere
