    Good day for me. Eight sports coats, three ties, and a pair of trousers. 7 of the eight sports coats from the same donor and fit perfectly. More pictures later but keeping these three. Minty, recent, light weight and perfect for SOCAL.

    I'd contact authorities, but it, then press charges.
    But shipping direct is no better. I've had 1 package stolen by La Poste and a second very nearly but I believe my efforts pressing USPS to press charges "unstuck" the package, i.e. The thief delivered it.

    Jeans in my size. First time finding Robert Graham jeans.

    Alberto, Robert Graham, and a Brooks Brother polo my size.

    Check out the funky ties. My first Etro tie I've found. And a couple of Robert Talbott. I left 3 other RT ties as they were 4". Maybe they flip...but I need to clear out other ones first.

    Follow up on the Dark Brown Crackle. I was at a Nordstrom Rack this week, and saw these Tampa's. They're new, but have probably been kicking around the shelves for a while. This is what I meant by they start to look beat up really quick.

    Found this sole shot in the mix of current shoes on the website. Looks like C&J to me. And all the Marlow models say benchmade in England.

    Not a huge wrestling guy but I do like cena ha... seems like a great dude. My sons a make a wish kid and cena has granted more wishes then anyone ever (over 500) so he's alright in my book. Also he does like the fine things in life so I'm guessing the suits are actually pretty nice suits as well. Keep us posted on how that adventure turns out.

    Fyi - just a point of knowledge - sorry i wasn't on when you posted...

    This is a Lee 191 unlined - the 191 LB usually had a corduroy neck and wool lined.

    This is much harder to find than the lined versions.

    I'm thinking early to mid 70s - I would have picked them up if they were cheap enough.

    I think Warehouse did a copy of this style a few years back.

    Made it back this afternoon and got three suits.

    Design-wise, the suits aren't anything us menswear afficionados would go crazy for. Low gorge, unvented. The jackets are fused.

    I also found some Florsheim shell that wasn't there last night, so no complaints here.

    Looks like this particular suit might be the same one as in this photo.
