 I'll just say this... I now know why you brag about skeet blankets... To paraphrase a crazy dead Aussie, "Krikey!"...

Dave Brubeck has a good one too, called Bossa Nova USA, I highly recommend it if you dig the other two. nod[1].gif

My recent finds - had some luck finding stuff in a 44!

 

Hugo Boss 100% cotton coat - Italian made - 44- Sahara model.  Sure looks legit, but I can't find a record of this model anywhere. (ignore the stripe of sunlight) - Likely not available

Found my first RLPL shirt (French cuffs) - Made in Italy and it is exactly the shirt I wanted.. just a little too big..  17 1/2 neck - available

 

 

 

 

Also my first Etro tie:

 

 

 

 

Also found a Pal Zileri suit - about a 44 in the jacket, but the pants are too small for me and don't have enough material to tailor (35x28) - available

Loved that read. Fascinating and sad how a great brand died. Reminded me too, if anyone digs rounded glasses, I just got my pair of these:

Good deal imo, they're awaiting my prescription.

Sn0wan, that blazer sure looks to be a suit jacket. Go find the pants and we can talk about what you'd like for the suit if the measurments suit me :)

last few weeks. Everything is available.

Anyone know this maker? For me regardless (feels nice, my size, nice color), but I'd be interested to know before I remove the tags. Besides being qualitatively nice, couldn't resist NWT, Made in Italy, 100% Sea Island Cotton for $5.

Thanks for posting that Mainy...being into clothes and finance...it's interesting how this stuff turns out. We may not like the clothes, but look at what Les Wexner did with the A&F name.


Also never understood the Sears acquisition of Lands End either.

Ah, Lands End. They once had oh-so-cool stuff--their Scottish woven shetland sweaters with saddle shoulders were the equal of anything on the planet, damn near.
