Thanks a lot for the help Nataku! I was pretty sure it was earlier than the 90's but didn't know how much.

Thanks Cesar. I like that Aquascutum, and the idea of a vinyl party.

suited, JL3212, that is some nice stuff!  French Shriners look good, nice pickup, as is that Talking Heads album; just went to a friend's place for a small vinyl party where he had that same exact record.

That vintage BB jacket with the red lining is awesome.


I found a similar North Face parka a few weeks back, if anyone's interested, I have like 5 parkas already so it's available if anyone's interested.



Some blues yesterday, I've been searching for a croc belt forever, finally found a great BB one in mint condition and it's too small:crazy:

Oh, and picked these up for a couple dollars the other day, worth a gamble?

What do you guys think of these 2 suit options? Decent price? Authentic?

 

I'm looking at a suit for med school/hospital interviews. I may just go with the Benjamin but I saw these 2 online.

 

Corneliani $460

 

 

 

Hickey Freeman Collection $500

Of the two I would go with the HF; the Corneliani is much too fashion forward, particularly the tiny lapels.

Agreed, I wouldn't wear a suit with patch pockets to an interview. A bit too casual.

Thanks fellas, I appreciate it. Yeah I noticed those deep pockets, a bit odd.

 

The Benjamin Sartorial looks nice too, fully canvassed. I really like the HF but it's plaid. Still very sharp.

Worth noting that the cut is probably going to be slimmer on the Benjamin, particularly the trousers.

I found this pair of jeans last night and couldn't let the stay. They aren't selvedge but seemed like something worth picking up. I couldn't find much about them on the interwebs. Denim Dudes let me know if this is something you are interested in. Emmett Jeans 36X32 Available

XXXL Filson wool shirt

I also found some fall/winter weight trousers for ebay next fall. 1 FF POW NWT No brand part of a suit.

And this pair 2 pleats ( they are making a comeback right???) for Nordstrom mini houndstooth NWOT.

Nice! All new? I'm a groundskeeper at a golf course every summer so I have an overflowing milk crate in my room filled with pro v1's and other higher end golf balls.  It'll be years before I have to buy new ones.

Flipping through the ties at a local thrift and a passing rack lady (there is probably a more pc term smile.gif) says cryptically "Do you like labels?" I said yes by relfex and she said she would be right back.

 

Drops these on the rack 1 minute later...

 

 

AppleMark

 

Top row Zegna, bottom row Versace. Yes the second from the right Versace does in real life look like one of the portals from Sliders...
