Very cool. Lived in NY/NJ for the most of my life but also spent lots of time in Michigan and SoCal.

Brian, the blue sweater is the Bobby Jones you traded me. it gets worn.....often.:fistbump:

shirt is the same cheap one that gets compliments everytime it's in a fit.

 

the A.P.C is  heading out to you after the holidays.  i felt like sending you something really special, because i am so happy with the Paul Smith you sent on good faith. the other jacket was just to size check. lol. enjoy them both. always on the lookout for the smaller sizes, and will continue to get you the good stuff.

  

-note. had mixed experiences on the thread this past year. but trading and talking with the good guys has been a pleasure.

 

also, the Big E's are real small. like a 29"w -31"L

 so smaller guys, pm if you want them.

:fistbump:

 

Glad you're getting a lot of good wear out of it! It was one I had pulled out of the bunch to keep myself but never wore.

 

Always got you in mind for Paul Smith and stuff slightly larger then fits me.  Happy Holidays

There is no bigger fan of Styx than myself--when I was 14, I stood in large pool of vomit for 90 minutes because it was close to the stage and was the only chance I had to get up close, and I liked it. Styx didn't need Yoko Ono to break up the band, they had Dennis DeYoung, and he did it all by himself with devastating effect. You can take the biggest asshole who ever posted on this thread, whoever that might be, and he wouldn't hold a candle to the asshole that is Dennis DeYoung. Dennis DeYoung is to assholes what vicuna is to fabrics, a class unto himself, the smelliest turd in a mountain of shit. And his "music" is even worse. Perhaps there is a hidden message that makes sense when you play a Dennis DeYoung record backwards at 78, because there sure as hell isn't anything there when you play one at 33.

Even if I liked Dennis DeYoung--and I really, really don't--I would never publicly admit it. I thought I would retch when Eazy confessed to liking Billy Ocean, who is Frank Zappa, Roky Erickson, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, John Coltrane and David Bowie all rolled into one compared with Dennis DeYoung.

I'm constantly amazed at the crappy music that people here who otherwise have such impeccable taste think is good. Not long ago, IIRC, someone said they like the Ray Conniff Singers. Seriously, WTF. I'm leaving now to blast some Spinal Tap in the car--I have some last-minute shopping to do.

I took the quiz thing yesterday and it had me right as SE Wisconsin which I'm guessing throws out the whole thing once you answer Bubbler for the water dispenser question

What does the way you speak say about where you’re from? Answer all the questions below to see your personal dialect map.
Apparently, on my first pass through the quiz, I'm from the south east, somewhere near Richmond. Or Birmingham. Or Augusta.

One out of three ain't bad for an online quiz, though.

'Tractor-trailer' and 'y'all' helped them peg me closest.



My second time through gave a more accurate result, based on a couple of different questions. Atlanta was the outlier thanks to the pajama question.


That test was wholly inaccurate, it was off by at least 75 miles! I was pegged as Modesto/Stockton/Santa Rosa, but grew up in San Jose.

Californians sure are a silly folk.

Another discount PSA: Gilt has a handful of Drakes and Luciano Barbera ties/PSes at nice prices. May have kopped if not for the dreaded XMas-wallet-syndrome.

So what your saying is, you don't like Dennis DeYoung?

Seriously though, I literally shot coffee out of my nose while reading this. rotflmao.gif
