Been slow the past couple of days.. just two shirts worth snagging:
Super soft Paul Stuart in my size and favorite color, and an Etro that turns out to be a bit too small (available - labelled 40).
ebay brag, hopefully the first of many coming up...
that is like proxy prices but I don't even owe anyone a favor afterwords...
only problem is that I just bought a cord blazer but prl jackets seem to fit me better than anything else... if it doesn't work out I will pass it off to a forum member
If this is correct, Alfred Dunhill bought Dunhill Tailors in the mid 80s.
Heh, unfortunately I didn't get to see that before he took it down (or the mods somehow tracked him all the way to Tumblr). I'm sure it was some amusing douchebaggery he didn't really mean. And he can say what he wants... unless he left a staple Brioni suit as "scraps" at the Lansdowne VV a few months ago, I beat his ass to at least something.
Dude... if that BBGF has arms on the longish side and you don't want to keep it, get at me. I've been doing my part to keep the thrifts clear for ya in the past two weeks by working all my damn 10-11 hour days.
And nice find on the Schott, looks to be the exact model I found. Did you find it north of the city perchance (at the VVV)?
I picked up a pair almost exactly like that a month ago at the Holt Renfrew outlet, so I'm guessing they're pretty recent. Mine had an identical button fly.
Sleeves and overall length look a touch long, but shoulders, chest, waist, arm width, all look spot-on. Button stance might be a sliver high, but since high-gorge and high button-stance are fashionable, looks good.
