Multi not working for some reason.
Easy: Graham or not, a blue velvet blazer kicks ass. I have one and LOVE it; only wish it were dual not single vented.
(SPOO! DON'T START WITH ME! I KNOW DAMN WELL IT'S NOT SF APPROVED.)
Vass are awesome.
ATLJon: There are times in life to take risk. And times not. Wife on the way to the hospital in the ambulance and left 10 minutes before you? Yes, that's the time to do 140 on the highway. The largest investment you'll ever make and that's been responsible for bankrupting many in the last few years? Not so much. Play it safe. 30 year fixed. You don't want any surprises here. You will always know your payment, can repay early, and probably even have some hardship options (e.g., you lose your job). You can play with the down payment if they let you, but as others have observed, you will pay that back one way or another.
Snuck out for a bit yesterday to blow off some steam. First spot hit good: PRL USA made double breast (6 over 2), dual vent beige glenplaid with lime green overcheck suit. Just gorgeous and my size. Will need a bit of shoulder pad removal and trouser slimming, but for what I paid, it's well worth it. Summer weight, too!
Then my day turned try and my mood turned sour.
Until: Recent TRICKERS (royal warrant and all), beige suede, perf wingtips, commando sole. Uppers and inners in good shape; worn sole but PLENTY of life left. 30% OFF!
Who's a 12.5 wide UK size and wants an awesome trade or hookup?
Is it fused? Yes
Was it made in China? Yes
Is it from an utterly non-brag worthy brand? YES.
So WTF, GMMcL?
Click to reveal (Click to show)
Dual vent, ticket pocket, 3 piece (with lapel wasitcoat), flat front
Potentially available, though I may try to slim this a bit and make it work.
And a couple of middling ties (PRL, Paul Stuart, Rooster madras)
Total paid just over 2 Jacksons. Solid day's work
I know this means it didn't happen, but pics just aren't in the cards for a long time. Sorry, dudes.
