[He glances around nervously, making sure he knows where the door is and that Boogers isn't between him and sweet, sweet freedom] Why do you need more than one, and what are you going to do with the other ones?

I know this isn't really the right thread for this, but does anybody recognize this tag? I was going through a pile of stuff I forgot I had and pulled out a blazer with this tag on it.

$3 I think. In a frame along with some other rare stuff such as the Batman poster you see underneath. Framed the Mcguiness and hung it in my sons room and will sell the 3 or 4 other items from the frame.

They needed to get rid of them at a store that was closing and the Manager basically gave me 13 for the price of 1. I bought one for myself (my Wife gathers Women's goods to sell) and then the rest I will flip.

You guys are really vanilla.

I've been shuttling ceaselessly between home, work, and consulting gigs and haven't been able to thrift in a week and a half, so here's an out-of-focus thrift fit.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Tweed jacket is BB acquired from EazyE - thanks, man! Fits great after tailoring.
Shirt is thrifted Gant by MB, sweater is non-thrifted Uniqlo, jeans are thrifted Gap selvage.
Pocket square by Air Tie shog[1].gif

* Edited to add spoiler.

I replied to Cap's original response, but I looked at the old sheet and decided to keep going with mine because it was it more thorough. I think it can streamline the trading process much more effectively (by including fields for ideal shoulder measurements or a range of acceptable shoulder measurements for instance). Mine is more of a catalog of sizes and preferences as opposed to a trading ring.

Picked one of these up a month or so ago. Quality is decent, but the look on the SA employee's face when she saw the text made the purchase worth it.

Busy week, but a teaser of what I hope amounts to the majority of my spring break financing.

Picked this up at a consignment shop ($18) for the GF, so NA.


Taken after she wore it so yeah... wrinkly.


On the subject of LBCS


Dual vented, 3/2 roll


I have honestly no clue how you guys ID by tags, so is this St Andrews or Attolini? I'm guessing the latter due to the styling?


tentatively NA - checking my dad's measurements

I know there was some discussion awhile ago about how fuck ugly high end menswear jeans are, well, feast your eyes on this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
AppleMark
This is a recent Kiton ad, not one from the early 90's. I couldn't find this image online so please excuse the poor quality of my photo. Check out the dad jeans and hair cuts. WTF were they thinking?

Attolini. Check out the first page of this thread. Pretty easy to tell between Attolini and St. Andrews, both of which you should memorize because they make for others more than themselves.

Nice finds, but is that an orphan? Is it patterned enough to be worn as a SC?
