    Agreed on refinishing. This is only really an issue with museum quality pieces or items with a historical provenance. Normal, even if rare, pieces generally do well with a refinish as long as we aren't talking about stripping and/or changing the original intended look of a piece. I love the MCM pieces you post. That desk is incredible...

    But, the dude asked a fucking simple question, not sure it was worthy of an attack. Double00 posts some pretty damn good shit.

    wake me when you find vintage levis and subsequently wash em to get rid of the stains. tbh i'm not a fan of mcm but to each their own.

    downer stuff from today:

    [​IMG]
    hermes, nice zegna, illusionist ricci
    - the hermes is destined to be either a narrow tie or a bow tie. what was the name of that service that recrafts these into bow ties?
    the cap is o.g. us-made new era, all wool and big pony baller. fits a human head, too!
