Do you mean Queen like this...

Or

Certainly not this...this would be a drag!

Hopefully something more like this. The Queen of Tweed!

Here are some pics of that pendleton. I knew the back was a little beat, but missed the small hole on the front. Nevertheless, i think i'll find some wear for it!

Enjoyed your observation, I can finally get this monkey off my back thinking I was the only one patch[1].gif

+1. Awful. Had no idea Cucinelli made an attempt at jeans.

Hard to tell, but does this have the hood too? I've only found one or two down parkas with the original optional hoods still attached. Many times people didn't opt to purchase them or if they did, they were lost many years ago.

Yup, pretty much. The stuff from the early 70's and prior is pretty good but can be hard to tell to the untrained eye. Basically if you have any doubts on Gant and wouldn't wear it yourself, pass. The stuff from the 80's and 90's sucked. Pretty easy to tell by styling.

Thanks! Got them at a local vintage/consignment store, so basically thrifted.

Went all over the city yesterday. Still working on a list of wardrobe basics I'm working on, but now with more of an eye on anything I can sell on eBay to put towards new staples I am having no luck finding in stores (like shoes, other than a pair of Johnston & Murphy's I'm coming up pretty dry in my size.)

 

With that in mind I found a LEGO Vikings chess set that apparently retails for $130, paid $30:

Into the shoe fund it goes.

 

For myself I didn't really find too much, a NWT Brooks Brothers tie:

 

400


On to stuff I found that I can't use, I found this orphan and grabbed it anyway. Rookie mistake?

 

Brooks Bros. Madison 38r, available:

 

400

Donna Karen Signature made in Italy. I know DKNY is lower end, so I took a chance here. Is DK Signature an older line? Unworn, pockets still sewn shut. 40r 33 pants. Available

London Fog leather jacket, not sure if these are worth anything really, but it's in great shape. I might keep it.

 

700

 

Finally, the nicest thing I've found so far. New looking Canali, kind of weird because one pocket is still sewn shut, other pockets still have uncut threads: 38r jacket, 32/31 pants. I'm not thrilled about selling something this decent on eBay, so I'll make it available for a couple of days if anyone is interested.

I know some of us are from southern Connecticut, and southwestern Connecticut. I actually have a mug on my desk in the office from that architectural wreck but excellent diner The Blue Colony.

Our house here, with 2 kids in elementary school, has been rocked by yesterday's events like nothing else since 9/11. I just want to say I'm thinking & praying for all of you with kids/relatives/any rooting interest. I cannot effing bring myself to explain it to my kids, and I cannot imagine you folks in that area trying to make sense of it.

Don't want to talk about guns. Just...sympathies.

Also, if I'm wearing the ultra-baller (or hideous, depending on your perspective) 1960s fat wool Kmart shirt I got today at the SA that somehow has survived in very good condition...am I hipster or anti-hipster? Can't figure it out. I'm sort of at...if I had a PAbst in my hand, hipster. If not, just a jamoke.
