Keep staring at this pretty neat-looking Dick Paine bespoke jacket, mesmerizing working cuffs, about 40-ish ... sans pants.
Looked everywhere. Nevertheless, thought I might see if anyone, for some reason, would want this. It'd probably be good for it to take a vacation. It keeps....staring.
EDIT - Nice on the Hermes. I've never seen an Arizona-ish one like that before.post #71585 of 1387285/27/13 at 5:55pmpost #71586 of 1387285/27/13 at 5:57pmpost #71587 of 1387285/27/13 at 5:58pmQuote:Originally Posted by Tyrone MacStiophain
I forgot to post this, because I usually don't pick up bags. But this Chiarugi briefcase looked pretty good. Can anyone school me on the value? Not sure if I'm keeping it.

Nice bag! If you decide not to keep it, I might be interested :]post #71588 of 1387285/27/13 at 6:47pmpost #71589 of 1387285/27/13 at 7:22pm
I have a ton of shoes to trade. I wear an 11.5 E, some of you other thrifters must have some nice shoes sitting around you'd be interested in trading for. I'd most like a nice pair of penny loafers, pref. light brown (the Grensons pictured fit my bill but were too large) but I'd be interested in seeing whatever you've got. PM if you want any of these.
Allen Edmonds Rutland, 10 E, black, has a rip inside the heel of the left shoe (visible in first pic)
Allen Edmonds Wendell, 8.5 E, dark brown.
Allen Edmonds Weybridge, size 8, not sure of width due to re-heeling but they are fairly narrow. Dark brown.
Alden penny loafers, 7 B/D, cognac.
Dack's wingtips, dark brown, 11 (can't seem to find a width listed in the Dack's size info). I have an identical pair in Black as well (same size and everything).
Dack's strap loafers, dark brown, waxed leather. Size 12, again can't figure out a width.
Florsheim Imperial black wingtips, 10 EEE, worn only a few times judging from sole wear.
Florsheim Imperial penny loafers, burgundy, 9D
Grenson James penny loafers, cognac, UK 11 E (so 12 E or so US)
Johnston & Murphy captoes, size 13 B/AA. Reddish-brown.
Johnston & Murphy Aristocraft tassel loafers, black. 12 D/B.
Johnston & Murphy Aristocraft formal pumps (I think that's what you call these...) 11.5 D/B.
John White wingtips, black, 7 (I believe C width but it's hard to tell from the sizing numbers).post #71590 of 1387285/27/13 at 7:31pm
Finally was able to get to some thrifting in for the first time in a month. One more week of school and hopefully that'll change.
Pink x 2 - Available
Anyone's lady want this (shirt-dress?) for cost+shipping? I got it with some store credit, but I didn't find anything else worthwhile. Needs the treatment.
Also hit up Marshalls - shorts & tiepost #71591 of 1387285/27/13 at 7:40pmWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Quote:Originally Posted by Brianpore
Finally got to wear my Tux outfit. 100% Discount/Ebay/SF Members all paid for by shhhhhhh (selling on ebay)..... yes yes, the left sleeve cuff has to come down 1/6" and my left pant leg was not sitting correct, but overall I'm really happy with the look and got a TON of compliments from everyone Exactly the look I was going for. A vest is on the list but prob need to get one custom made and cost almost as much as the Tuxedo itself cost.
- Isaia Tuxedo - 1 Button, Grosgrain Peak Lapel, Unvented (exactly what I wanted)
- Thomas Pink Tuxedo Shirt
- Polo Ralph Lauren Grosgrain Diamond Bowtie
- Ralph Lauren Purple Label Cummerbund
- Ralph Lauren Purple Label (Edward Green) Opera Pumps with Grosgrain Bow
- Tom Ford White Linen Pocket Square

Nataku, well done!!! A very provocative display. I normally don't go for such stuff, but those were pieces of art I'm sure someone could rock to no end. Hope to see a couple on you, maybe. Definitely a great welcome back to the thread after end-of-semester craziness.
Brian, great fit! I know where you're going to be x-posting...
Eddie, what a great classic tux! I think the double-breasted 6x2 is the most elegant a tux can get, with the 1-button single-breasteds close seconds.
Taking the derivative of a constant, regardless of value, yields zero.
