Killer find, especially with the nifty fifty.

I shoot in front of a fence on my patio, but that's definitely not mine!  Now that it's getting nice out and we have more hours of sunshine, you might see my fence appear in your watched items a bit more. :)

Damn dude.  And M.I.N.T.  Can't get much better than that.

Thanks man. I've been busy myself. Trying to offload the backlog of thrift stuff so I have more cash to go thrifting more regularly again. Putting 15 tweeds on the eBay this week.

Big Shout out to barrelntrigger for trading me these FU Unicorns! They fit almost perfect off the rack and are something I desperately needed! Hope the PRLs work for you and I hope my apology for the late shipment is to your tastes!

Half lined and very breathable fabric for warmer weather but canvassed! Was there ever a time when Stanley Blacker was a quality name? I kopped it but was curious about it. I'll keep it at work for emergency use after I get the sleeves shortened.

New favorite description.

I thought the same thing. It's gorgeous, nonetheless.

prices are high for anything nwt or made by ralph lauren and across the board for other stuff
Thanks for all the input, both here and elsewhere. I'll try to report back next week. nod[1].gif

I first hoped E. Marinella but I have no clue... Either way it's nice and a keeper! found a Stefano Ricci with it


Still searching...

 

Also, is there a way to date a Zegna suit based on the tag?

post #65173 of 112996

I've found a bunch of saleable stuff lately, but not much brag-worthy, I did find my first two skeets though.

 

 

 

 

Also picked up a few ties of late, including both a traddy's dream and nightmare, at least brand-wise (J,Press and Etro)

 

 

 

Finally, found a pair of AE Ritz opera/tuxedo shoes (not pictured) and this pair of Tod's loafers which have some creasing, but otherwise great condition.
