The Waffle House closet to my house is a total dive...still good though. Now when my wife was working in Columbus, there was a new one near the town house we rented there. Much more pleasant dining experience.

Thanks for the quick verification! I still have to send you the pictures of the items I want to send your way...I'll get on that nod[1].gif

Wow have you guys pulled in some hauls lately. I only get about one day a week to hit up the shops and haven't been doing anywhere near you guys.

 

Will I be disowned if I state that I am not the biggest WH fan?

 

Giant shoutout to los_face. He honestly packs more gifts for my GF than I do throughout the year. Awesome guy to deal and trade with. Hooked me up with a nice RLX athletic jacket and threw in some bonus stuff that will definitely get put to use.

 

Also, Fueco, are you a giant Sharks fan? For some odd reason, a Marshalls by me had like 5 SJ Sharks scarves for sale. Hockey + Team across the country is an odd item to find its way here. I didn't look at the price but if you want me to proxy, let me know.

First Marshall's find.  PRL, made in Italy, tan cords...hanging in the sportswear section.  Retail $350....$39 and my size.  No pics as they are being hemmed.  Boom!

I'm pretty sure you get herpes just by walking into a Waffle House. uhoh.gif

waffle houses are great people watching places. when my friends and i go we always bet on how many teeth the counter person will be missing.

You bet a lot for a guy without poker in his user name. SF/TT No limit tourney outside the GW?

Pops up here every once in a while, Frisky. I've spotted a couple. Definitely not the one you are looking for smile.gif

Not even sure if it's a counterfeit—just a completely different deal. They don't copy the Borrelli branding at all.

If anyone sees a 38R RL Rugby Tux jacket like this, please snag it for me. I have the pants and they are lonely.

Last time I was at a Waffle House, it was in Virgina Beach, and they had armed security guards posted outside.

Apologies to sw&d dudes who already endured this

Here's the score. No time tonight to spruce it up, or obsess about picture quality so I'm just going to post it.


L to R, top to bottom:
Paul Stuart/Samuelsohn (charcoal gray DB single vent), PRL Corneliani (navy flannel, dual vent, ticket pocket), Paul Stuart/Samuelsohn (navy, single breast, single vent)
Oxxford (navy stripe, single breast, single vent), HF (silver tag, solid navy, single breast single vent)

L to R
Valentino (don't normally brag, but it's Super 120s and is important to gauge volume), Harris Tweed, Paul Stuart blue sport coat (non-orphan.... I think), J Press (absolutely pristine beige cotton suit)

L to R, top to bottom
4 x Zegna shirts (varying age, incl su misura)
5 x Zegna shirts (varying age)
2x Alain Figaret, Ben Silver, J Press, BBGF
CT Sea Island, CT non-iron slim fit

NWOT FU-red HT tie for me

Trafalgar braces


Condition on most of this stuff is OK, though a few have minor issues. Most shirts need a solid soak, the PRL has a manageable hole in the trou, and the Stuart double breasted has a pinhole in the arm.

Passed on so, so, SO much good stuff, either because the damage was even worse or because they were orphaned/reverse orphaned.

But the most demoralizing feeling HAS to be going to one of your semi-regular spots (1x per 2-3 weeks) and seeing the reverse orphan to the orphan you passed last time around, with the orphan nowhere to be found. As I've already observed, I rarely remember something after I leave a store, but this time, it stuck with me: Stuart/Samuelsohn double breasted, ticket pocket, dual vent brown flannel chalk stripe. It was really, really cool. Trou were nowhere to be found. Until today, when the jacket was missing. I know for a fact that this store pulls things out the week after the color goes on sale, and tosses them out. So this is a permanent orphan situation. I'm nauseous again just thinking about it.

Edit: Spoo (or anyone else) - Name the time and place for poker, and I'll be there.

The other thing you can bet on at the WH is the over/under on how many times you'll be called Hun or Darlin
