One category that seems to consistently get comments though, and it happens to be one of my favorite "categories" in this thread, are the vintage pieces. Things that are old get a lot of love here.

Anyway, not a complaint or a rant, but something I've noticed. Am I alone in that??

I agree that the standards have gone up. I think we have more people posting than ever, so the good stuff is bound to show up more frequently. I remember someone posted a RLPL plaid sport coat a while back that got zero comments.

I like the growing appreciation for more vintage stuff here. Sometimes a 1950s Deansgate jacket is more interesting than another 90s Zegna suit. I hope Spoo's vintage thread continues to take off too.

Also, this thread moves SO fast (even with 100 posts per page viewing) that you miss stuff and there are so many side topics going on, like this one

Ran into Nataku at a local discount store that I was hitting up on the hot tip of half price Red Wing Beckman boots. Sadly they did not have my size. Did grab myself a LBM 1911 navy blazer for the spring at 75% off... and a pair of the Beckmans for ebay to make my money back. devil.gif

So tempted to go back Saturday and swipe up any unpurchased boots. I couldn't even get a used pair on ebay for this price.

Bizzocchi is decent stuff. I have several I like well. I'll cover your investment at least, if someone hasn't already beat me to it.

Lemme guess, this weekend while I'm working on a music vid?

 

Recent stuffs:

Stoked on this, AE belt in my size, matches the shoes I got a while back perfectly.

No Berluti but I'm digging the punch pattern.

 

What better way to turn a shitty day (well week) around? Poppin this cherry finally

Cue the Kool Aid man (Click to show)

Oooh Yeaaah!

 

Same donor must have dropped off 5 different safari/photo vests / jackets. This was the most clean of them... And was waiting on an end cap as I walked in the store.

 

That said, anyone know how to fix this? Or better to leave as-is and warn buyers about it?

 

And then some love from a ghetto Marshalls that I was convinced would never have something like along these lines

It gets better (Click to show)

Left- Made in Italy wool... Right- Made in Italy um, is that the silk I'm looking for?

 

Only issues on them are:

Not visible in use. 

 

Riddle me this,  should lay like this

 

Wants to lay like this, with the tag facing forward

How does one fix that?

Since we're talking shoe makers ....

 

Anyone?

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the glossiest leather of any of my shoes. It's not anything like corrected grain, is it?

Isn't McAfee the maker? Looks like corrected grain to me.

Just one pick up, saw the patch pockets first


made in Italy?

Don't mind if I do

1/4 floating canvas construction?

Ugh, I don't know about you guys but the only Salvatore Ferragamo I see is a total let down. Usually poor quality shirts with plastic buttons.


Unless it's made by Cantarelli



Now the only question... To take to eazye's miracle working tailor or take care of one student loan payment...
