Thought there would be some jazz.  Classical is just fine with me.  Hell, my ID comes from Le Sacre du Printemps.

Those are some great ties ^^^

 

 

All I got today was the ugliest Brioni I've ever seen. It's much worse in person.

Those all look great! My fave is the NWT BB.

We seem to have a lot of bike experts on here shog[1].gif .

Thanks dudes, they all are most likely from the same guy and I don't use the NWOT label very often, but these are extra minty! happy.gif

I'm on mobile so I can't see your location but did you find that around the Cleveland area? I find a fair amount of Kilgore Trout and it's always high end well made stuff. I've been meaning to drop in to the store sometime soon.

Nope!  Upstate NY.

Speaking of GQ articles, I just kept thinking, " I wonder how much stuff he could've found shopping the thrifts?"

Amen. A bicycle is not, should not be, a fashion statement. You wouldn't put a Barbour instead of GoreTex in your backpack for a serious backcountry trip. Being an unreformed roadie, I'd quibble about a hybrid instead of a true road bike--if you're not leaving pavement, I've always believed you should go with what works best on pavement. But that's quibbling. Everything else here is very sound advice.

Being an unreformed mountain biker. /roadie/ track rider/ cyclocross rider/ triathlete/ ultra racer; I wholeheartedly agree...

Thanks, Boh. And all the others who thumbed and commented. In retrospect, I think the tie and square were a tad brash for the muted colors of the rest of the outfit, but not so much that I regret the fit.

Today, on the other hand, I regret just about every sartorial choice I made. Pics will NOT be forthcoming.

As to your question, I have not counted my squares (or ties) in a long time. I think I was up to close to 100 squares a while back, but thinned the herd considerably. I'm inching my way back closer to 80 or so. It's just so hard to resist the damn things at $1 (usually) a pop! Another herd thinning will soon be in the offing....

Dig: If you really love the boots, fit a 11 AAA (though they've probably been stretched to a C at this point), and don't mind cracks at the vamp, get at me. I can make do until I find something else.

Lanvin = Givenchy = Dior = YSL = etc. = Instapass (unless the quality LEAPS out at me) as I CBB remembering which is good/bad. Have passed on the LADY in the boat many, many times. I accept my fate.

Edit: none fit anyways and I'm not looking to flip clothes and such so it was just out of curiosity.

I agree with all who said what Chet said. Look at my recent fits and you will often find non-SF-branded items.

But this is a totally different thing from whether it's brag-worthy here.
