That's an awesome coat. I would rock it and to answer you're questions.... it's worth what someone will pay.

There were two of these and a Stefano Ricci that was identical. I passed. Good pass?

So you mean my size, well maybe too big for me actually. That said, SHOUT OUT to Snoogz on a great summer RLPL Polo

 

The "good pass" comment needs to be followed by how much it would have cost.. $3 Bad pass, $20 Good pass.

Martini girl should come back I honestly wouldn't care if dm7 left instead of her she was an active and engaging participant besides that whole disgusting behavior of name calling and being a bigot
Also have grenadine ties ever been made of polyester?
Is that what the tie bars grendafaux ties are?
I think orgeotix owns one can he chime in on the fabric composition?
I am asking because I have a chance to buy a large amount of solid color what appear to be grenadines but they are 4 in wide and polyester... Damn you 70s...

I miss MartiniGirl.

A bit of luck, finally, to make up for the sting of no AE's for $40.

This was floating in the women's section and apparently had been for awhile--made it to half-off before I found it:

I don't usually pick up Cole Haan, but when I do, it's made in USA with a split back treatment:

The piece d'resistance:

I don't usually buy shoes without knowing the size but when I do, they are these:



They are barely worn and absolutely immaculate. I'm guessing size 11, based on the marking on the sole. Anyone know?

So funny. These, in fact, are those exact same Peals that were on shopgoodwill.com--they arrived on my doorstep today. All you had to do was put "velvety" into the search function and they popped right up.

Dang, and here I thought I missed out big! Reminds me of when Yoox sold the Ralph Lauren Stanfords and another model made by C&J for $69 and $79. People on here went nuts. I was lucky to get a pair, though not the C&J pair sadly. Still, they're nicest pair of shoes I own.

Nice find!!

Managed to get a few things today despite the crowds at the stores.

Vintage Champion athletic t-shirt. I'm guessing 60's or prior. Weave is really different as is the cut. The printing on the front is definitely not the type of silk screen you see today.

Any 48-50 guys looking for some nice suits?

Killer recent BB w/ Loro Piana fabric. 50 R

Recent Oxxford Super 100s. 48 T

My day just turned around when I stopped by the shoe repair guy and he had my John Lobbs all ready for me. They look so much better than I thought they would. He did an amazing job. Pics later.

If that jacket had happen to fit me, and I had happen to purchase it, well then you have to share that #menswear haircut with me!

Here is that Lambskin and Lizard jacket I found at lunch. I have even made a makeshift bolo tie for the occasion.

This one is the same basic jacket, just a little different color...
