Great day today which included brewing beer and cute girls at thrift stores...

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 


Stones hot rocks, Goodbye yellow brick road, Dos Al Green (two records in one sleeve when I got home), Lets get it on

 

 

 

Magical Mystery Tour, Shaft, Clapton ft Cocaine, Neil after the Goldrush, Zep dos, and Little Feat Waiting for Columbus. I talked live albums with Nataku once...This is also one of the best

 

Then clothes 

 

2x adidas...

 

Faconnable Linen for summer

 4x Levis (none selvedge, bummed) all 31 by 30 

 

BB Tattersall with MOP, 

 

BB check

 

Any San Diegans? How about Canadians?  

 

Columbia Vest Womens M

 

 

Boss SC

 

 

 

not to be confused with...

 

(It was the real deal)

 

3 ties for my uncle. CT (red), B Rep. Italy (middle), Adison on Madison (plaid) 

 

3 Gant, the pink is viyella 

 

And these guys...

 

Grenadine 

 

Purply 

 

 

So that concludes todays journey.

 

But alas,

 

Does anybody now anything about this lapel construction, its from an unlabeled suit, none anywhere. I felt it was of great quality overall, however i didn't get because it was 30...I feel like goodwill knows something that I dont, is this construction distinct for a certain maker?

 

had nice MOP buttons on working cuffs 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And Quick Story Time. I went to check out the shoes section and as Im getting there this women has what looks like these nice pairs of shoes (you know the feeling when you see someone holding something you want and know is money). So I thought she was going to put them back but no, she walks sown the isle and puts them in her bag thinking no one was looking.  They must have been priced around thirty for her to have done something like this so Im super anxious cause I really have to know who the maker was, I mean they might be something she obviously doesn't deserve.  Of course the right thing to do would be to tell a manager right away, however I didn't. I just really wanted to know who made the shoes, and felt it would be kinda selfish if I did for that sole reason alone, I also honestly didn't want to put myself in that surreal position of making that kind of accusation.  So yeah I guess you can can me a pussy, yet Im also kinda passive. So yeah, fuck I wish i knew the maker

For those that don't know, this tailoring house has been family owned since 1798, and is almost solely an ecclesiastical tailor. They've made many Popes' clothing. Pretty sure this is a thread first. I'm guessing it's made somewhere between 1920-1960.

SO much stuff in there [my wallet] is hoping [isn't] my size.
post #67810 of 116089

I DO NOT LIKE TO PLAY THIS GAME....  I am shamed by how much stuff I have stuffed into my closet  closets  closets + standalone rack + trunk + dresser + garage. I am feeling Spoo's comment about having c. 50 pairs of shoes

shog[1].gif

Imagine what you pictured here, multiplied by 3  peepwall[1].gif

 

I need to do a closet cleanout, for serious.  Time to stop buying and start tailoring (of course if only my weight and shape were not constantly fluctuating).

Arnold Brant, made in Italy, 46 L. I almost picked this up and will probably go back for it, but I balked at the name (even though the quality is pretty great).

 

Any interest?

 

Any idea on the maker?

 

From another SF user who bought a Brant italy from STP:

 

 

Quote:
The black label Brant is actually very nice and full canvas. The cloth is noticably better than Brant mainline, supple hand. The cloth is lighter than I thought, more spring summer weight, drapes beautifully. The silhouette is trim, fit is very much like my Canali suits.

It is much, much higher quality than the Brant made in Canada. My tailor had never seen the black label and was immediately impressed (relative to the brand) - even more so when I told him what I paid for it.

Please don't post those.

 

Yeah, I agree with the coupling of these two statements. I had some stuff that I found that was brag-worthy but I didn't feel like wasting my time posting if it was going to get lost amongst some wonderful internet bickering.

The quick answer? Absolutely nothing. We found out the horsesasses penis is actually a banana.
