Bought it like this, haven't had anything done to it, but I agree with your sentiments. I so rarely wear suits that I might just leave it as is so I can devote funds to items which are more often utilized. Thanks for your input (you too, Ian!).

nah that makes too much sense

I just been under a shit ton of pressure lately and have to start paying for college next year and so far have only saved up for one semester before I slowly become crushed under crippling debt that will rule my life for the next couple decades

if it's any consolation, i'm thinking of putting in a bid on the faconnable, it's just that the BOC is a bit long for my taste (and i think 2 button looks better on me than 3).

hey dude no problem. sorry to derail the thread and be a little bitch I just felt like I needed to vent a little bit.

 

 

that stain is either semen, toothpaste, or bleach, I would suggest trying to rub it off with a wet towel if that doesn't work it is probably bleach and the only thing you can do to it is dab it a little with a brown fabric marker

Sometimes, you win. Sometimes, you loose. Sometimes, you fall flat on your face and can't get up. Hopefully this isn't the latter. JK! +1 for bid war at the end.

Man, you are gonna make so much money on that PRL hunting jacket. I think the PRL Country might be a precursor to RRL. Not 100% sure though...Also, I think you can get that spot out of suede with a tooth brush and some tooth paste...I've yet to try it but that's what I've heard from a reliable source.

+100 on the hunting jacket also I think you are right about rl country but if I remember that particular label is a pass (at least I hope so because I passed on it today...)

oops quoted the wrong thing

also sorry I can't do that I am still 8 years old and haven't hit puberty

You can use droplets of water mixed with wax (Kiwi) polish to build up enough wax to make it almost invisible. It takes a while but I've done it. You can sometimes save some time by applying a LOT of wax and then passing it near a flame source (cigarette lighter) to melt the wax and then buff, buff buff.

Love that one and wish it fit! Expect to make some money if you list it in 6 weeks.


I'd also like to thank the person (forgot who it was) that posted the link to the $600 Tom Ford era thong. I opened up ebay to check the price of something in the US and was greeted by "Inspired by your recent views...." and followed by about a dozen men's thongs. That was a pretty great unintentional trolling. happy.gif
