Thank you Cap and Cat!

I am sorry to hear that, but happy that your wife is safe. My thoughts are with all of those families grieving tonight. Makes me sick to my stomach too.

They actually arrived today and I just opened them (they appear navy, but they're black)...


Those are sweet! I am not sure I can pull off braces so these may go to a good home. They really do look navy in the picture!

Hope all my fellow CTers are okay

You aren't supposed to see them, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Posting this stuff from my phone on the way out of town so please excuse any misspellings and multiple posts.

3rd bomber jacket I found this month. This one is a real one though. 1968 G-1

I don't wear braces often, but I needed a new pair for black tie stuff. For my wife (and my) birthday in November, I promised her a Viennese ball. They're all white tie with a black tie minimum, so I had to get a few things together. Low light + iPhone = navy braces confused.gif They're definitely black.

On a somber note, my thoughts go out to anyone in the Connecticut area impacted by the recent tragedy.

Hilarious.  Next time, just say "yes it's been posted here before" instead of attempting to be witty.

haha, that is a good point. In Florida, jackets often come off pretty quick at an event. We had a COLD front today. Low 60's...haha

I'm jealous, we're at -2C right now.

Today I had a guy at a shop call me a "classy guy" and complimented my briefcase. I thanked him and noticed his cracked Sambas. He continued, "I would guess that it's a Salvatore Ferragamo briefcase." I was a bit surprised and said "No, it's a Porsche Design." He said "Ahh, I knew it looked expensive. I still have a couple of Ferragamos at home, still in their protective bags. I should get rid of them soon." I really wanted to tell him to just give them to me. I'm still not sure if he is just some sort of eccentric wealthy guy or what, but I've met him before....he has tons of antiques and invited me to take a look before his next sale. He's definitely a bit odd, but interesting nonetheless.

Here's where your hat came from. Not the best, but not too bad if you thrifted it.

I enjoyed being in Ireland and being able to just grab and try on samples from every brand- wound up with Hanly, Hanna had too full a cut for me, and the bill of their slim fit looked weirdly long to me. There were a couple others too, but they were mostly too full. The Hanly was a good bit fuller than Hanna's slimmer one, but it was all in proportion to my eye.

Pendleton things generally sell well, though I haven't tested that on a tie. And while I have one I could try it with, I'm not gonna, it's mine.

Wait...did we see a pic of that bridge coat yet and I missed it?

I've found a few pairs of To Boot NYs before, but never with a NY street map on the soles.

I honestly haven't posted one, but I can add a quick (and terrible quality) picture from the last week or so. I'll try to get a better picture, but I have to say that this coat has been a gift from above! Thanks again, Wes!
