Tirailleur, good to see you posting over here, I didn't know you wandered through these parts.

Easy - I'm willing to bet the same as you, this stuff screams professional musician. Minneapolis is a big music city and I know of a lot of big-time musicians are from Minnesota. Bob Dylan, Prince, Eddie Cochran and a few others are from bunch of others all hail from here.
I'll ease your mind; it wasn't even close. If they had been there they wouldn't have even made it out onto the floor! Haha!
One of my favs the Jayhawks are also from Minneapolis. Also the Replacements.
Maybe this stuff belonged to Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum? If there was ever a dude I could see rocking this kind of stuff to be cool....it would be him.
Paul Smith London silk pocket square
Paul Smith London cufflinks, in box
Vintage silver cufflinks from India, showing the goddess Lakshmi on a lotus flower. Very intricate work, quite nice.
2 x Brooks Brothers shirts (yawn, but they're staples I can use)
Canali tie, new
and for my good lady
NWOT Lanvin purse
2 x full testers of Harajuku Lovers perfume.
Saw a very nice Hickey Freeman suit (very rare in these parts) but too big for me, so I left it.
Pirner's still solidly a flannel man
Not Banksy...it's Blek le rat.
You can see it on the suitcase.
Still very cool.
I don't think TonyL's comment was meant bachanded. I certainly didn't mean mine that way. I am genuinely happy for Nat, and as I said, I see the aesthetic value and artistry in the items. But its still not my style. Its like any art: I don't undertand nor would I put in my house many modern pieces, but I am still impressed by and appreciate many of them. That's all I was getting at: are they merely objects du art (spelling?), or are they intended for daily use. I now have my answer, which is why this thread rocks.
Your post didn't come off like that. It was more of curiosity than. "Oh it is ugly shit because I don't understand. I guess I am happy for you" which was what homeboy did. I hope this makes sense because I am using a phone to rspo d and my phat phingas make it difficult
Congratulations, Nataku. I would have required smelling salts and new pants.
And now for something completely different:
I've got some vintage brooks bros. pieces I wanted to offer to the thread first, just because I thought they were kind of special and wanted to help the shorter dudes out.
