post #79381 of 124462

Bought two pairs of shoes, two ties and a pair of boxers today at GW.

 

Yes, the local GW sells overstock boxers from Target I think.

 

I popped my Nettleton cherry, and also picked up my first pair of Florsheim Imperials (9 A):

I was completely out of room and overflowing before this weekends ginormous haul. This means no standard Wednesday loops or epic Friday loops. I will probably still go to the locals here on my lunch break, because I will go nuts if I don't.

What this means for the thread.....Nothing. I will continue to post pics of the backlog of items.

You can remove the sewing machine from the base and make a great table. We have one in our house.

Reverso tie by Zegna to commemorate the year 2000. Limited edition of 2000.

I think Wes has a pair of size 17 loafers in his store. I was wondering which nba player donated those.

RT, PRL, Perry Ellis (I know, I liked the pattern), PRL, PRL.

Plus a pair of no name braces, a Burberry sport coat and a Hickey Freeman orphaned suitcoat that are both at my tailor getting the arms maxed out.

Toss, Keep, Toss, Toss, Toss...err...Keep, no I think I was right the first time, Toss.

Just my opinion. Feel free to tell me to shove it. satisfied.gif

BTW, I liked the Hermes, fake or not.

And stop buying orphans. They take up too much closet space when you start to find more sportcoats. Ask me how I know. shog[1].gif

And here I thought you might be distracted by your cataloging and might have missed it. Silly me.

Is the E Zegna Reverso tie worth going back to get? How would you even wear it? Does it have any value?

 

Thanks for the info Spoo!

Ties are all for personal wear so I'll read your opinion then respectfully ignore it. :)

 

I liked the Hermes too. I should have just taken the chance for .99 cents. 

 

And I just got the one orphan! It was real nice fabric and had enough texture to it that it will work on it's own. I'll post when I get it back. I wish I had the problem of finding too many sport coats but the whole 46XL monkey arm thing makes me not too worried. :p

post #79392 of 124462

The "feel" test led me to this. I am not familiar with the maker, but real nice wool and well made from what I can tell. 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
 

Raf Simons x Fred Perry slim fit wool pants

My nostalgic finds of the day, a USA made Izod Lacoste. Had the exact colored one in high school in the 80's.

 

 

Had a similar pair of the these too! Pair of USA union made boy scout pants complete with brass buckled belt. I can't remember what the brass attachment was used for though.

Sure, I would grab it and sell it personally. Why not?

How would I wear it? I wouldnt, but someone would!

can find without cards. rolleyes.gif

Look at the front legs on the horse. When I posted 2 hermes ties a couple weeks ago I was told that authentic ties will show 2 front legs. Is there any truth to that?

^ and shouldn't it have made in France somewhere on that tag?
