Good night all, I leave you with this 2 minute 9 second piece of sartorial humor, sweet dreams.........
it was better as a text post.
Wth, I've been running into lots of pinstripe orphans recently. First was the beige Truzzi, then recent navy Canali, then recent-ish Cuccinelli in S150s. All of them felt really nice with bemberg lining, pants nowhere to be found. I almost sadistically hope these were donated because the pants were destroyed somehow, and not that the pants are alone somewhere. Stopped by the SA today after seeing the distribution truck in town at lunchtime, headed straight there. Found some Harris Tweed that I have to measure, and more damn orphans. I wasn't going to even mention it except I found a nice brown/beige pinstripe in my size, 3pc but missing the pants. Sigh. Finally finished shopping for Secret Santa, though, and am finally satisfied with my pickings for that endeavour. Someone will be sent a package very soon...
P.S. Found a crappy jacket today from what looked like the 70's, but it had Aquascutum written on the lining but not the tags -- thing was polyester and viscose. What?
Watchmen graphic novel! Faq yeah!
I think that Watchman comic is a later print yes? The original cover is the smiley face made out of text?
Cool bag, although my girlfriend bought a coach bag recently and it is cracking slightly already after a couple of months.
Dude, you're buying this stuff at thrift prices. Take a chance on the unknown, just like we all have done. I was standing there in line scrupulously inspecting some Gucci croc loafers for imperfections rather than throwing $10 at the clerk. Live and learn, then get that money.
I was surprised, too, about the Truzzi. That was a couple months ago, not long after I discovered SF and this thread, when I found the AE lizard skin loafers I think. When I went back to see if I found matching pants for the Truzzi, it was gone. Thing was gorgeous in S110s, and kind of fit... [meepish] Oh, and there was another pinstripe orphan in the same size that I found at the same time, and when I went hunting for the Truzzi pants later I found matching pants for the other pinstripe -- I seriously hope I didn't miss out on what is for me a grail find at $17.
Good to know about the Cucinelli, will go back for it ASAP. Thanks!
Perhaps later I'll go to Neiman Marcus and get me some GM-H "thrift" pics, but in the meantime, my lowly finds:
AE Maxfield, 10 EEE with rubber half-soles. Available
US Made LL Bean duck boots, 9 ladies M. Possibly available.
NWT PRL button down. Not available right now.
Also picked up a staple Zegna white shirt and a striped Lacoste dress shirt, but both are getting the treatment right now.
