You know it! A part of me really wants to move to the big island. First, I need to pay off some student loans and convince my wife.

Stuff from Mon & Tues.  Sorry for the shitty pics.  confused.gif:

 

 

 


1000

 

Zanella x6.  Most are double pleated, size 38, though a few flat fronts/larger sizes mixed in.  Many are in a variety of Loro Piana fabrics.  Awesome colors and patterns, can't tell from the pics. 

 

1000

 

Zanella x6.  The top pair of cords are freaking COLOR SHIFTING.  It's wild, I've never seen anything quite like it.

 

1000

RLPL chinos (warning, they seriously are like a 27" inseam.  puzzled.gif), NWT Brooks chinos, Boss FF pants, Faconnable, Brooks

 

1000

1000

N&F Weird Guy.  There's a small hole in the knee area.  ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif.  But otherwise hey're seriously mint...probably worn a handful of times.

 

 

 

 

1000

 

No effing idea why only this pic rotates, but I've tried uploading it like 5 times with no success.  Oh well.

 

NWT Gitman Bros OCBD, NWT English Laundry (ebay fodder), Brioni N/A, Zegna safari-type shirt, BBGF turtleneck, Brooks Shetland

 

1000

 

AE Sanford

 

1000

 

Cheaney N/A

 

 

1000

 

Older Burberry, but really nice; silk I think

Tom James.  I almost always leave these, but all of these were super nice: awesome patterns, recent (all 2004 or newer iirc), side vented, working cuffs, awesome linings, etc.

 

1000

1000

 

Pendleton pure camelhair

Loro Piana "Cashmere Cloud" for JW Nordstrom.  About this fabric - I had one other one awhile back, and this "cashmere cloud" (cashmere/silk blend) is, without a doubt, one of the softest fabrics I've ever handled.  It's really amazing stuff.

 

1000

1000

1000

 

Ted Baker.  This thing is out of this world.  Definitely the most insane SC I've ever seen.  Has to be super recent N/A

 

1000

1000

 

Super recent Samuelsohn with a really weird button-out lining that I've never seen before.  N/A.

 

1000

 

Recent Southwick (it's a mint green herringbone)

 

1000

 

Pal Zilleri Gruppo Forall

 

 

 

1000

 

BB trady SC (sack, 3/2)

 

1000

 

Brooks Silver Label/Martin Greenfield

 

1000

1000

1000

 

1000

 

And the pièce de résistance, very recent Oxxford Super 150s, peak lapel, DB, flat front pants. BALLER.  The GW lady even let me keep the Oxxford hanger it was on.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif  N/A.

 

Also found this exact trench: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110986211802, but toscano snaked it from me before I even got a chance to take a pic.  

 

Lots of other pedestrian stuff that probably wouldn't interest anyone here (BB slim fits, BB SCs, etc.)

Do they have a place for collar stays? If not (some don't), you could always have a tailor flip the collar. Simple, cheap and for nice shirts, you won't see the difference!

You can replace the collars with white, contrast collars for $20 each. Google "shirt collar replacement"; the guy is in Texas but does mail orders. He can also change the neck size for you.

What types of things does your uncle sell now??

Awesome. Go for it - it's an awesome looking piece. It's still a Panasonic shop but they've since become more of a home retailer. The shop is more like an office with a selection of light bulbs, cords, small electronics and replacement repair manuals. They now use a central warehouse for their storage and deal with larger appliances such as air conditioners, washers, driers, stoves, etc. National/Panasonic makes tons of stuff for the Japanese market. The store used to be so much fun. They carried everything from TVs to vacuum cleaners. Bought my first transistor radio from there when I was in first grade. Still have it somewhere. Little green plastic AM-only model.

My first non-tie Hermes purchase was an orange and white check Hermes shirt. The collar was torn at the top of the fold, so I got it for $3. Sold it for $150. I couldn't believe it.

Passed on some insane stuff today that was probably a steal but was still above my budget. All are NWT/NWOT. Shoes were NWOB

- Isaia x Superga blue cashmere sneakers 10.5 $250

- Lanvin black jeweled bug sneakers. Can't even find them online. Had brightly colored, sparkly jeweled bugs all over them. Retail was $1,095. They wanted $250.

- Brooks Brothers Black Fleece solid navy suit. MOP buttons. BB4. $500

- Gorgeous Lardini side vented tweed sportcoat. Tweed was from a maker that started with a "J". 42 R. $250


I did pick up a pair of NWT LVC Levis 501z selvedge jeans. They priced them as regular Levis. 34 x 34

Crap!  Forgot the coolest find of them all for me.  Literally the first non-sports hat I've ever even seen in a GW around here:

On a related note, I've come to find that I don't look like a *total* douchebag in a Fedora/bowler/whatever the hell this is, so N/A for now until my hair grows too long for it to fit my fat head anymore.
