Thanks. I was actually just showing off my Luxire shirts and took the rest down. Then snapped a picture of what was hanging at the moment.

 

That said, I have two white shirts - Hugo Boss and I hate both of them. I refuse to wear them and wear blue and pink all I can instead. I have 8-9 other Luxire shirts on the way. None white.. but some white and more (better) blue in the next haul. I've got burgundy stripes, blue ecru, white with red/blue check, etc. Just, getting fixed.

 

Seeing as how I basically only wear my Luxire shirts, I just realized I have more shirts overseas getting fixed for mis-measurement or freshly ordered than readily wearable in my closet.

Boss can be hit or miss.
I felt a boss made in turkey and it was smooth like butter, the way a high end shirt should be.
Other ones from boss made else where didnt come up as nice. All black label. weird. maybe it was a different cut.
 
 
I picked up the BR jacket.
Orphan or sports coat? in my zeal of finding a nice jacket that fit right I forgot to take a good look.
3 button, nice and heavy made in turkey.

I might have a power supply for that. PM me

Edit: scratch that. I must have gotten rid of my supplies for those. At least they are not where they should be.

I haven't been in the market for guitars for awhile, but Ovations haven't been in high demand since the '70s.
If you replace a nut again, I recommend filing/sanding down the nut, rather than the wood on the neck. I don't know what kind of tuning machines Ovations use, but most tuning machines use a tiny screw that goes into the headstock to keep them from spinning. Is that not the case here?

Finally find some stuff today.

Not pictured are just some things headed for the Bay that nobody on here would care about (gaudy True Religion jeans, RG shirts, women's Costume National blazer, etc).


My favorite find of the day. Keeper.



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Bills x 2. M2 are a 40 and M3 cords are a 36.





Unicorns


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Any M/C guys that don't get slim, cuffed raw denim, these may be a great entry into nice jeans. Made from White Oak Cone denim. Non-selvedge. Tagged 38 x 30.




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

NWOT J. Crew Ludlow jacket. Moon Yorkshire tweed. I'm trying to talk myself out of the fact that there may have been a pair of matching pants to make this a killer suit.




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Vent still basted shut!


Recent Eton shirt. 16 1/2



Vintage Dead spring 1989 tour t-shirt.

RLPL Polo Shirt for RL Script Shirtcheers.gif

cheers.gif +1 on a very good trade. I'm glad you liked it, you can pick those up for a song on ebay as no one really knows about the "script" label and the quality is SO much nicer.

 

 

Also quick shout out to shoeluv on popping my SF cherry. Met him real quick in a dark ally outside starbucks today in dirty jerz on my way to pick up some other mink coats on consignment (Christian Dior, the good womens stuff! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif) and grabbed some shoes he just thrifted for consignment as well. Very nice to meet you sir. I look forward to your next trip to the area and we shall hit up a store or two together.

There is Boss black label, and then there is Boss Selection. Selection is demonstrably better quality than black label in materials. I honestly don't know the difference in construction outside of shanking the buttons, but the fabrics and buttons are excellent.
