I've definitely made mistakes on getting unworthy stuff tailored.

I don't usually tailor shirts but I just took the plunge and tailored a single-vented Gianni Campagna 3-roll-2 navy blazer with ticket pocket and gold buttons. Had the sides taken in and the sleeves slimmed for $100. So, tailoring costs plus acquisition cost of $12.99 got me a $5k SC for $112.99. Still a pretty good deal. Next up is a cashmere Fernando Caraceni gun-club check SC.

Anyone here read Inventory Magazine? It comes out of Vancouver. I'd never heard of it before before but I picked up the latest issue and there's a feature on Red Wing shoes, waxed cotton (fabric and jackets) and the vintage market in Tokyo. Pretty neat stuff.

Big fan. Did a write up on Bobby from Boston, which was interesting! The things in their online store are the things my dreams are made of

Picked up this sweet Southwick for Andover Shop Prince of Wales Check Black, Creme and Burgundy 42R without realizing it had some stains on the sleeve. If anyone wants to try to rehab it, it is yours for the shipping cost. 

 

 

 

 

p2p - 22"

sleeve - 25"

shoulders - 18"

BOC - 31"

Found an amazing very vintage, very minty, LL Bean suede shirt jacket. Looks like maybe late 60's

Not only did I hear it on the radio today, but I also heard a kid singing it at the middle school I teach at!

However is "studio" meaningful?

More winter scenes (Click to show)
Midnight after a storm


A coyote in the middle of the city. He lives in an immense river valley that runs through the city. I live a few blocks from the valley. He was out scavenging one night.


Icicles on a nearby church. A nostalgic scene but really an indication that their roofing/attic ventilation is experiencing problems and these icicles will cause more problems in time.

I meant to comment on this earlier and completely forgot...that's really neat! I don't play hockey, but It think it's really interesting that it's such a common neighborhood thing. Thanks for posting!

The Studio line isn't great as even the mainline, but they'll likely sell!
