    It's been a good couple of weeks. First the Zegna Su Misura 15milmil15 that I mentioned a wee or two ago. (tagged 56R available)
    [​IMG]

    Went back to follow-up at the same store and found a Gianluca Isaia sport coat. (tagged 60R and available)

    Then there was this bespoke suit and tweed sport coat for the same guy. My third and fourth Huntsman finds.

    Finally, can I get an authenticity check on this tie? Real or Fake? Well made and has a metallic/reflective quality to it that is interesting.

    Story time:
    So i was having a "Line". Chat with @Takai. Amongst the podcast worthy shit we talk about, i was moaning about how hard it is to get 29cm (size 11) shoes in Japan. -they stop at size 10.5, And not being able to shop freely for what i like. Got to asking homie about proxying re releases from Foot Locker when 90's badassery pops up. (Penny's,pippens,Jumpmans,Blasts,etc. . ) it really is that hard for a dude with stupidly large feet to get by.
    After talking to him. I took the whip out for a wash. And drove out to the Nike outlet.
    *Had the good feels. You all know what i mean. The "Thrift" was skin tingling. :bounce2:
    Parked the car. -straight to the store.
    Walked to the back wall. Past the rows. And BAM!

    Air Jordan "Spike Lee Forty's"!!!!!!!!!!! In my damned size for a change!!!!! :wow::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer:
    Oh yeah. At 25%. I'll take 'em. These look straight outta 1997. :D
    So, so sweet. The Thrift hath rewarded me in the struggle. -All i had to do was sacrifice some Yohji to the trade box for Takai. :cheers:


    Edit: who was it that asked about the Jordan 1's reissue in smaller sizes???

    Thanks! It is. I threw it on and, while it was big on me, it wasn't "XL big" on me, if that makes sense.

    I would welcome ANY type of precipitation down here. Today is the 63rd day in a row without any rain in my dried-up city. [​IMG]

    Awesome score! Not sure on the date, but I recently had a pair of warmup pants with the same tag. Round Two's online shop was asking somewhere around $80 for the same pair I had. Mine were a medium and I got multiple messages asking if I had them in an XL. A matching set should do quite well for you, especially if XL or bigger.

    Nike sweatsuit is from late 80s or very early 90s at most. Nike then changed the script flight logo into a crappy looking 'F' shaped like a triangle. Either that or it's a reissue.

    Would you kop a NWOT club Monaco twill jacket for 30$? It's too big for me or it would be in my closet. It's a beautiful blue which I can't seem to capture. It's closer to the first picture

    Don't know about the US market but I find Club Monaco stuff is hit or miss when it comes to sales. Depends on the item.
