    Did you not see the size of that Zegna slim fit? I figured you'd have dibs'd the crap outa that thing.

    I had the same reaction to the leather blazer as Spoo. Maybe there's hope for me yet....

    It is going to be funny when a first time poster pops in to show off his square toed Kennith Cole's and his Van Heusen shirt and takes the 30,000th post.

    Bought the Van Heusen for himself, but found a huge stash of Yves St. Laurent Monsieur ties to flip on ebay

    I don't think the color combination is bad, but I'm not that big a fan of everything else. Casey said it, but this makes you look very bulky all around, and you're clearly a skinnier fella so it looks odd. In addition to what Casey said, the shoulders look a tad wide, and the arms look too big, in addition to being too long. Also, pinpoint collars are a matter of preference, but I find they make most tie knots look weird and too constricted in relation to your neck. Anyway, glad to see this trend is still alive.

    for 30K I wanted to drop this sweet ass picture of 16 (yes 16) nicely starched shirts in assorted colors and perfectly lined up as if it were the Thrift find of the year.

    And then reveal that they were ALL Stafford :crazy: and in my father-in-laws closet. :embar:

    ...to go with his treasure trove of van heusen, tommy, and stafford ties. WINNING! (all available :smarmy:)

    Ha ha, we should retrospective this thread on the worst shit ever posted. There have been some doozies. The worst tend to be the ties. Somehow this thread attracts its share of 80's talbotts and brands that at were haut in the 60's but have since turned to absolute shit.

    Just a few things today while out tracking down some proxies from stalwart members:

    Managed to get my hands on 5 pairs of matching all wooden trees: [​IMG](shipping is gonna be fun :D) Not Available

    [​IMG]

    Found this for you Dig! But then I saw the size :/ Black RLPL Polo (My first RLPL) It seemed to be more like a L than XL. Marked at $19 :/
    [​IMG]

    Finally, picked up this amazing Gitman Bros for Bejamin's Shirt. Tagged L. Perfect condition Awesome horn buttons. The pictures dont do the fabric justice, it has a really nice look and feel to it. with a nice subtle over maroon overcheck. (Available - hoping to trade for a solid color shirt 16x34/35)
