Well, let's also remember that gold didn't used to be $7.654 MILLION dollars per ounce. A few years back, those buttons were probably $50 per set. A nice little unique blingification of a staple SC.

That haul is ridiculous... Thankfully none is available. My wallet would hate me.
post #65363 of 118064

EDIT: Just realized how silly this haul looks after jamiebryant's. I'm so sorry. facepalm.gif

 

 

Not much to speak of recently, but I'm happy with these.

And then I think a cloud mated with freshly driven snow while having a threesome with thin air. This shirt was cut as if it was custom made for me, is incredibly awesome, but has no tags. I'd put this at or above Charvet level. Going to be perfect this summer.

EDIT: What's up with the yoke on this? I've seen split and center yoke, but never this.

Valentino by Zegna. Super 1x0s. Soft, flannelized, and excellent. Unvented, though, and whoever tailored the waist did a HACK job. Can't be let out, and probably needs to be taken in. 42L w 35 waist.

This seams to be turning into an annual find for thrifters of the thread.

 

Congrats on those buttons as well as the rest of the haul.

That's def. a top contender in the second annual cheapies!

post #65366 of 118064

Come to think of it, now that my boner has gone down, I highly doubt JB hauled all those goodies in 1 day. I'm thinking since he's been MIA, he's been collecting goodies for weeks if not month and consolidated the best stuff. But who cares! That shit is the bomb shitzzzzzz! I'll be happy just thrifting one CDG piece let along muti! Now, if I can only find any Wtaps in a GW...

38R: love the tie, jacket (suit?) And shoes. Just not together. Scale of the dots makes it not quite right for a suit somehow (just mho), and the shoes are so formal thet seem over the top with a conservative fit. All just mho; again, I love the pieces individually.

And to the new guy: nice things in general, but I think Barrell was right about the orphan -- in fact, I think most of them are. Brooks brothers orphans (other than black fleece) and most others should be avoided. True top tier stuff, like Kiton or Brioni, can be picked up in orphan form.

+1 on Jamiebryant... Wow!

 

Don't agree on the shoes. Spectators are not too formal. They're a spring / summer shoe, though, so I'm not sure they go with a dark suit. Maybe a light gray, lighter-than-navy, or gray seersucker.

I'll save you some time... No Stafford, Hilfiger, Nautica, Arnold Palmer, Lauren RL, etc. will have solid gold buttons.
