For the record that finamore probably has the biggest MOP I'd seen (in terms of surface area, its probably about the same as borelli in terms of total mass) BUT I saw a Talbott Estate today... expensive and too long in the sleeve, that CRUSHED them, I mean, these buttons would've been comical if they werent so sexayyyyy. PSA I'll take any talbott estate you find... 

@Mainy, thanks, I don't know why it didn't come to me in the store, but once i pulled it out again I was like... this is sulka script, its got to be. (now I can rock it with my b/w pinstripe suit a la Spoo (Yes spoo, I will totally steal your steez, alll day long))

talbott estate is made by ladies in california, literally each shirt has the autograph of the woman that made it. incredibly good buy on ebay since you can cop one for like 40 bucks and it's crushing just about every rtw shirt in terms of quality.

fwiw though, i hate big mop buttons, i prefer thin ones. the big ones are hard to button, and just chip insanely easy.

Ahh! A good pass then! I passed on a TF a few months ago. That thing was a power tie from the 90s...Ugly and wide as a fat lady's rear.

$80 for a tie + slimming.... Too rich for my blood

 

Side note, crappy crappy picture does not do this justice, but 1st "fit pic" tossed it over a OLD tshirt I'm wearing today of the Tux. Thought it was going to need a full 1" chopped off the bottom, but it really needs 1/4", maybe a 1/2" so debating just leaving it vs. possibly having the tailor screw it up.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

For all you noobs that are going to say the sleeves are too long, they are still basted fing02[1].gif

I would leave it, as it's not Thattttt bad.

& it would be a major loss if screwed up.

I think the length is fine but it's hard to gauge without seeing your legs for proportion. I see someone has been hanging out at the kids' table! biggrin.gif

 

BTW, I dig your little chicken foot!

Any info on vera pelle briefcases?  Not exactly a thrift - a buddy bought one in Italy in 1998, and left it in his closet ever since.
