post #68236 of 102867
Not a thrift find but I finally pulled the trigger on a bottle of Creed Green Irish Tweed to pop my cherry on high end smell-goodery. I got the 4 oz. bottle from FragranceNet.com and applied their on line 20% coupon and got free shipping. Less than $140 shipped to my door in less than a week. I did a lot of due diligence and I hope it's the real thing but at this point, I'm assuming that I'm good.

They included a couple of these cool folding mirror combs and a sample of some fragrance I never heard of before.



First application happens in less than an hour. Stoked!

I'll give you an honest opinion on J&M. They were my first foray into "better" shoes almost 15 years ago. I liked the made in Italy ones with the rubber soles. The company I worked for work corporate casual...and they worked great with Khakis. Theyhad a higher end line made in Italy I think made by Magnanni if I'm not mistaken and carried a $200 plus price tag.

Since then they began outsourcing their stuff much like Cole-Haan, Bostonian, and Florsheim....they are a shadow of their former self. If they are for your own use and they are in good shape...pick them up and use them until you find something better. If you find a pair on the old Made in US or Italy pairs and they look pristine, they might bring you something or would make good trade bait. Otherwise I'd leave them.


As for the smart ass replies to Raist earlier posts....not sure if it's the weather or lack of good finds, but right now there are a bunch of you who need an attitude readjustment.

Nice car, a friend of mine at work had an Infiniti coupe for a while. Personally I would have saved myself a few grand and got a 370Z.....I like the look better.

Unfortunately, it's more like a U.S. size 48. Taglia 59, according to the tag.[/quote]

I'll take it, depending on measurements... smile.gif

It might help. Dunno.

Both owned by same dude. Not having measured I'm going to guess a 40R-ish. The pant legs are long. Must have been 6-0, 6-1ish

Just a general comment: These Robert Graham shirts are spreading on racks like e. coli at Burger King.

I found this yesterday at the Goodwill.  A Emilio Pucci by Ermenegildo Zegna Suit w/ Flat Front pants.  Everything looked great until I looked at the sleeve.  Aaargh!  I couldn't find a lot of information on this line.  Sold by Saks.  I might kop it and try a re-weaver that has been posted on this thread previously.

 
Sorry for the crappy phone pics.

Was this shortly after you beat him for his share of the Kiton? After taking the pic, did he scrawl a note in blood? uhoh.gif
