    no, it's like a taped seam that's made to emulate a selvage line

    and the color isnt really navy, it's more like a greyish blue

    I thought the point of recent-purchase threads was to show readers new pieces rather than list them. The former action is a community service, the latter a personal one.

    Forgiven, as a noob you're given a mistake allowance.

    so far this year:

    1) brown asics/onitsuka tigers - mexico 66 in brown woven/ecru - i ended up getting these because i had a $50 giftcard, and they were on sale for $53.

    (you can see a picture here)
    http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/1284295/c/107095.html

    2) oxxford herringbone suit (i may have posted this the last time)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=013

    3) BB Peal Tan Suede Shoes
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=003

    btw - the toe profile is very chiseled on these - it's definitely not round-toe, in case you were thinking of getting them.


    4-9) and a number of random dress shirts that i don't have pictures for - BB golden fleeces (they run big in the neck and are french cuffed, so i was able to get 15.5 x 35s to fit - i normally get 16 x 36), paul fredrick custom shirts, and i think one nordstrom smartcare (i used the other giftcard for ths one).

    10) and the lee 101z during that lee.com sale that was a month or two back.

    I think there were some random BB and J Crew socks and plain BB shirts as well.

    Nice pickups Andrew....I really like that dogtooth coat

    and yea, I was also gonna mention that you seem to have a theme going on. But that's cool cuz when I look in my closet I see the same item repeated over and over again, just by different makers.


    I think, as your WAYWN posts show, it can be a good thing. Especially if you have tried lots of different styles and settled on something particular that you like. On MC there is a member that goes by StyleStudent who used to post about his wardrobe which consists almost entirely of (many slightly different) navy blazers and grey flannel and cavalry twill trousers. I think that done right there is something very elegant about dressing solely in slight variations of a particular look that suits you.
