I'd be a little creeped out. He probably just wore that last week at a viewing frown.gif

Someone must be cleaning out his place. It's nice to see that they're donating.

Really? Wow! You learn somethin' new every day!

Belt across the vent for your pleasure.

Also, I like J Crew :(

 

Hey man, I don't think he meant it in an insulting way. Ian using the term "J Crew tool" is similar to when I use the term "denim douche bag." I don't mean to say everyone who wear denim tops with denim bottoms are douche bags. It's just denim over load. Hell, I wear chambray shirts and denim jeans combo. all the time.

I'm sure one of you young bucks is going to tell me I'm wrong, and the UCC actually has some kind of exception on point, but at the very least, I would have made my dissatisfaction highly audible, and would definitely have asked for a manager and threatened to call the Better Business Bureau AND TJX customer service.
That's all I EVER find for ties at TJX. LeSigh.

 

+1

 

Would more folks on here inclined to agree if the "mistaken sitcharooney" were pulled on their favorite sports car? I, for one, would be outraged if that were to happen to me.

The entire forum is "good taste" (this is also posted in MC, btw, though that is of little relevance at this point.  I doubt J. Crew would be defended to the death on the SW&D side either), and if you get offended by a little bit of elitism, you're going to find yourself offended pretty damn often here.  Of course, there are exceptions and there are plenty of great J. Crew pieces (just one page back Eazye posted an awesome blackwatch plaid toggle coat that is drool-worthy), but much of it is poorly/cheaply made and unoriginal, so the flack is well deserved.

 

The nice thing about fashion is that there is no ultimate arbiter of style, so you can just as easily tell me to screw off and continue rocking the J. Crew gear as you please. 

 

 

 

Haha, +0.5

haha I agree it looks good I just don't personally like peacoats very much but after wearing it on valentines day and getting the attention of many girls I think I can be convinced to hang onto it :) at least for the time being...

I feel like I spread misinformation. what I am trying to do is delete this account or change the name and make a new more anonymous one. I would never just straight up leave you guys!!

 

in other news I just picked up like half (slight exageration xD) of the f/w 11 michael bastian for gant shirting. dude knows how to make stuff that fits tall skinny swede's. none of the shirts were more than $40 on the bay...

you've probably looked into this a little more but I think I remember hearing that the admins can manually change your account name. Considering that every time another member quoted you they put your name into a post scrubbing your name from the site is probably an impossible task.

Yeah it's got to be him.

So here's the details - left behind a BB custom suit that had a massive hole in the crotch - however it did have a beautiful pair of braces attached which I grabbed (more on that later).

Martin Greenfield Bespoke Suit for Ed Koch - charcoal gray, single vent, 3 roll 2, flat front trousers with no belt loops, braces buttons only. Good shape, no immediate flaws jumped out at me. He was a big dude, this thing is at least a 46L.





Martin Greenfield Bespoke Blazer for Ed Koch - navy blue, single vent, 3 roll 2, silver buttons (missing one on the sleeve).






BB Braces (Ed Koch owned)




I believe these are the Trafalgar braces I'm looking for (Ed Koch owned and NWT?!?!?!?!)





Also snagged this Filson Sweater (pretty recent, size Large)



And this BB Harris tweed overcoat 46L - sadly a bit late in the season for this....

I'd buy it; immediately! As long as it's good for a few more wears.

Hey!

 

Since it's been a while since my last clothes-related post, here's the highlight reel of the last 6 - 8 weeks or so:

 

 

^^^ Loro Piana cashmere sweater size EUR 56.  NOT AVAILABLE.  Kind of a neat story: I bought it at GW, but it had a small hole in the left elbow.  I took it to a custom leather shop on Charles St. on Beacon Hill and had them put dark brown suede patches on both elbows.  It's too big on me, but it's really soft and comfortable.  I use it as a sleeping sweater.

 

 

^^^ Funny no-name 100% cotton "SEXUAL POSITIONS" pocket square.

 

 

^^^ Ermenegildo Zegna "fatte a mano" shoes size 9 EE.  NOT AVAILABLE.  These shoes are almost like new - very little wear.

 

 

^^^ Ermenegildo Zegna "fatte a mano" shoes size 10 1/2.  NOT AVAILABLE.  My size!

 

 

^^^ All of these are BNWT and are silk, wool, or a silk / wool blend from either Bergdorf Goodman or Neiman Marcus.  NOT AVAILABLE.  I bought these at a discount store.

 

 

^^^ RLPL purple corduroy pants 32 x 33 with 2" cuffs.  NOT AVAILABLE.  I bought these on eBay for a REALLY low BIN.

 

The Deets (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

^^^ Stuffed pheasant.  DEFINITELY NOT AVAILABLE.  Not a thrift find, but it's cool.  smile.gif

 

Aaand a lot of really cool vintage stuff not pictured.

post #63161 of 110701

Quick Shout Out to EazyE with a badass Hook-up of Ties.  I amazed how many ties fit in that envelope!

THanks again!!

I do not see such a big deal over your name. If you created a Linkedin account, your full name and profile will be there as well. I have had full exposure due to being an academic and knock on wood I have not had a debt collection agency knocking on my door with $50K in credit card fees thanks to a fraudster.

It is not terribly smart to use your full name on a public forum, but all the same, a data thief would probably think your name Ian Erickson would be an alias anyhow. It has a nice ring to it and it is not an embarrassing name like Gaylord Van Dickwad.

Second time I've seen this weird pattern on an Aquascutum tie. Grabbed it this time as it's pretty nice. Help on the pattern?
