He doesn't like the jacket, you do. Not a big deal, not worth increasing your blood pressure! Wear it in good health.

Yeah, I do tend to get worked up over stupid shit. I need to treat people I disagree with like I treat unhelpful reviews on Yelp or Larry David's comedy and just ignore it.

Gotta be same donor. Possibly same donor across all the various hauls, going back my trad haul from a few weeks ago.

Yeah, and I'm cursing the fact that I had deadlines today and couldn't get out.

Yep, it was me.



I just wanted to see the finds 'filled out' on actual people instead of draped across a bed or hanging from a closet door. I figured that fit critiques might discourage people from posting the thrift fits, hence that caveat. Oh well.

I'm all for not critiquing fit pics if it's not asked for but I just feel like critiquing a jacket that no one is wearing is pretty harmless.

Crazy divots on the sleeve.
Pants look a little short.
Not sure if Id do a blue top with black pants.
Stars and stripes are a good combo.

Need better pics, but looks it from what I can see.
Have you checked it for misprints (Hermes doesn't sell seconds) and looked for the loop (not definitive, but its presence is a good indicator)?

Looks like it slipped past the Pricing Stasi as well.

To my untrained eyes it checks out. And yes. Slipped by.

2nd time I've found Hermes and both times the pricing gods were smiling.

a) curb is great
b) if people have feedback for your fits read it and either note or dismiss it. sometimes I get feedback on fits and I think "hmmm, that would be better" and sometimes I think "oh 38R, you crazy". It's the internet, you can't attach rules to your posts, and it's probably not worth getting worked up over.

Heh, you sound like all those complain-y eBay buyers that message me telling me there's no way shipping should be as expensive as it is. Given all the BS on that site, you'd have to be crazy to ship across the border with no tracking number, and crazier still to ship shoes without a box. I'd rather not sell the item than sell it and then have to refund a buyer's money because the item arrived damaged (or 'not at all').

It almost certainly won't still be there, but if it is, kop. Did you find that at the Vaughan VV? Only place in the city I've ever picked up McQueen, and it was that size.

Probably worth debating, since it is the community that makes and enforces the "rules."
Considering that the critiques I've seen in this thread are the most forgiving in all of SF, I dont see the harmn in it myself.

 

It was probably worth debating the first few times, but that point has long passed. People post, get angry when others comment, then post again. Internet.

This I gotta take issue with. Not a Seinfeld fan even?

Never mind, you've been told.  Hope it's still there tomorrow.

Damn! I gotta follow that with this?  Oh well, it's good for me - 

ties.

H&S, 3x BOSS, Ferragamo (guess which one), and Hermes.

 

Diesel is hit and miss, but not going to pass on these black leather:

...and I stand corrected on my "drop" thingy meaning it was a suit.

My Isaia that is absolutely a sport coat has the same drop on the tag.

 

Yesterday's first day of spring break with the Chipp carrot & bunny tie.  Got a lot of compliments.
