The LaGloria Cubanas rolled at the El Credito factory in Miami were always more consistent than the ones rolled in the DR. And of course all were better back when Ernesto Perez-Carrillo was in charge

I left a silk and wool Belvest sports coat behind yesterday.  It's a dark orange and blue check.  The comments above make me wonder if it's worth going back and getting.  It would be for sale or trade though as it's a bit big for me.  Is there a market for older model Belvest coats?

Funny thing is....the store with the Hermes actually had a Pronto Uomo suit behind the counter for $99. Lol. The girl said "Oh, it was made in Italy. That's why it's so expensive. It was probably thousands of dollars."

Lol

BTW. Thanks to Dustin stopping by today, I am now enjoying a Fat Boy and a Butterfudge milkshake from our local dive carhop. Absolutely a fair trade for a cashmere sc with MOP buttons. Actually I think I made out better on the deal!

This was each of us at some point. I remember when I thought quality ended at Eddie Bauer. :P

True. Before SF i was the proud owner of a dockers suit.

I let the insane pronto uomo price slide since the hermes was only $6. Lol

Anyhow, PREACH, SON!

 

I agree I would like to wear a light blue solid shirt but I don't have one in linen and it is going to be pretty warm tomorrow

Navy blazer always look better with a solid OCBD!

 

it is a baller jacket, I had to take it in a bunch in the body and the sleeves but the length was perfect everywhere. I just went to the post office and it is going to cost me like 30 to ship all the stuff to you so if you are going to the meetup on thursday and I give it to you then?

I don't know about different lavin labels and this very well may be good although it isn't the sailboat/littlegirl. but whenever I see a jacket that has the brand name printed repeatedly in the lining it is almost always fake or a diffusion
