Do I win a pair of Gucci croc loafers that actually fit me?

 

But seriously, Rookie of the Year definitely goes to DM7.  A whole nother level of YOLO.

I think the NIB Lobbs from like 10,000 pages ago are still the best.
 
I don't think I was a member yet, but that was pretty bonkers.

Its older... nice looking though. Had one like that which I think went to a thread member. You can tell quick by the tag. One city = oldest, 2 cities = old, 3 cities = newish

Now to catch up on the thread

post #57145 of 112378

not really a brag or even a large discount but I am stoked about winning this

measurements are perfect, it is real leather has cool pockets is a super classic bomber style ect. I would have gladly paid more for it although 78 is pretty steep especially considering it is american living (lets not get into the jc penny debate again though)

my next big investment will be copping these bad boys after christmas with some ebay money and hopefully a buttload of end of season discounts

Jesus, why do you people hate me?

I'M WAY TOO COMPETITIVE NOT TO TAKE THIS WITH DEADLY SERIOUSNESS

Mother farkers.

I went out today as Beowulf to fulfill the quest set for me by Grendel. I came back with bags of stuff. But before you get excited, I failed. Sort of. Barbera Sartoriale by St. Andrews (I think), but unvented and besom pockets. Sulka, but very old tie and shirt, each of which that have damage. Trafalgar braces x2. Super old, super awesome Brooks Brothers Chesterfield. Some other stuff, but nowhere near the volume of awesome that's been extracted from my home state in recent days. (Plus I cheated; much of my searching was in New York). Passed on a very decent solid gray double breasted, dual vented Aquascutum orphan because I lacked the patience to search for the pants needle in the room-sized haystack of men's trousers. And on one of the nicest, most recent Isaia SCs I've seen recently because they wanted an absurd -- no, I mean like an order of magnitude plus above normal thrift prices -- amount for it.

Hah ha. Remember that I am in possession of the NWOT Kiton suit circa 2011, discovered by Troika and purchased by Mexicutioner and transferred to me.
