I cried when I got out of bed this morning.

 

I had the most vivid dream that I found a Cashmere Kiton Suit at TJ Maxx for $215. I swore it was really happening. I had already bragged about it here and everything.

I will, but I am not optimistic about it. At ours, you are lucky if you can find a real PRL in a sea of US Polo Assn. and they rarely have suits (Chaps) at all.

Thanks! I've seen a lot of boots with scales before. Any tips regarding deciphering between exotic materials?

 

Edit: answered my own question tooling around the Lucchese website. Looks like I've seen a lot of lizard lately.

On most boots, a search of the model numbers inside will tell you pretty much everything about them. The boot makers seem to be pretty good about that.

Weird, I was just dreaming about unlined light blue with white poka-dot schlubby silk ties. Of course, it's already been noted that we have problems. biggrin.gif

Wouldn't Tony Lama be on that list too?  Justin's are the only boots some of my friends would be caught dead in, but when would they be a good pickup?

Just some Burberry stuff this week (not all from the same person - I'll upload pics later), but if you're a Police/Sting fan like I am, you'll know why I value this find the most...

 

6 Disc set, rang up for 49 cents!

It'd be really weird if she was wearing an unlined light blue with white poka-dot schlubby silk tie. uhoh.gif
