Yeah it's a both a gift and a curse.

A couple of interesting finds today. I don't hear much about pipe smoking on this forum, but I thought I'd share (not a collector really):

I've flipped over hundreds (if not thousands) of lighters in the search for a Dunhill. This is the closest I've come.

Dunhill shell pipe:



Dunhill pipe reamer, in its original box/pouch:

Nice Persols....unfortunately prescription.

Since it's slow around here today (thread was on the second page!), I'd add what must have been a donation from an American. It's a PRL shirt with the purple label, 100% Sea Island Cotton and made in Singapore. Really nice shirt and I would have grabbed it for someone here, but they wanted €12 or €13 for it.



This was my first coffee/cake sitting outside this spring. I'm not normally in the habit of taking pictures of my food, but I originally took a picture to send to my wife to show her how bad the waiter was. We always roll our eyes when we see him at this cafe, and this time he set my cake, coffee and water at the end of the table next to me, on the opposite side. I had to get up, walk to the other side and bring it all over. #Firstworldproblems, right? Well it still annoys me as he expects a tip when he didn't even put a bit of care into a simple activity. /rant

Anyway, cake was good and I had missed sitting outside.

I hate it when all the winter stuff goes away for the summer months, nothing but shirts and ties. On that note, I picked up a BB extra slim fit shirt in my size today. facepalm.gif

OK, I've picked up a handful of awesome thrift shop items, perhaps you can help me get some more. Here's the rub, I'm 6'5", so most thrift shops don't carry 44XL / 44L jackets or 17.5x37 shirts. Are there any stores or sites that cater to those of us who are taller than average? 

 

Thanks, in advance, for the wonderful help!

Since Hans mentioned it being slow around here, I thought I'd share a thrift related project I've been working on. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm a fan of old steamer trunks, so when I see one with some potential, I usually grab it. I've got 3 so far and am always looking to add more to the stack, as I find them to be ascetically pleasing and they go together well with the other antique furniture I've acquired over the years. I've had these two sitting in my dining room for the past couple months and recently decided I was going to paint them, as one of them was a rather ugly shit color.





The little one I painted a color called "deep forest pine" and the larger one will be a dark blue called "sailboat". I huge improvement, if I do say so myself.

I still need to remove the paint from the fittings and do some detailing on the black parts, but otherwise, one down and one to go.

Been real dry lately.

Couple finds

NWT BR Seersucker for the bay. A couple ties. AE "cole" loafers for me. Corneliani Oxford shirt getting the treatment.

post #68955 of 136908

I know this isn't a Macclesfield pattern, but what do you guys think of this tie as in.... Is it a wedding appropriate tie?
