    Today was pretty much my last day out as my break from work is near its end. I had a lunch meeting across the street from a store that I hadn't planned on making it back out to. Glad I had the chance to run in as I have two more I can tick off the list:

    Ralph Lauren Black Label suit
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Kiton shirt
    [​IMG]

    and then I had to cash in my near expired credit at another store down the street. All the good overpriced ($10-$15) ties were gone, so I had to settle for this $10 EZ:

    and a stack of these...handkerchiefs?

    I bet we could talk him down to $3,500!
    Yeah. According to some of the formal wear threads around here, notch lapel jackets which go back to the '30s and earlier are too close to the business suit. Probably a way to cut costs for tux rental joints since peak lapels are higher maintenance. Peak or Shawl lapels are held in higher regard.

    Nice finds! The RLBL is the older model (belt loops vs side tabs), but a hell of a nice pickup! Hope it fits!
    Still have yet to find Kiton in the wild. One of the only things I havn't found yet [​IMG]

    They are bastards when threads like this one taught them? :) The other disappointing part is they are lifeless blobs.

    Wat. Are you serious spoo? Ebay wouldn't remove something if I paid them to. Oh wait, I do pay them. I'm still not a top rated seller because of 2 fraudulent cases opened against me TEN MONTHS ago. :foo: Urghhhh

    Here is mine but I was unaware of any cases against me. Weird

    Thanks for the tip on the suit. Unfortunately it doesn't fit me. I was hoping the lack of pleats was a sign of some sort of newness.

    When I started going out, the number one spot on my list of things to find was either John Lobbs, or Edward Greens. So, if I remember right from a few pages back, and you found a pair of Lobbs...that fit...wow.

    Still a lot I'd still like to find of course if I can find the time. Years ago I used to spend my time hunting down out of print albums at used music stores. The big grail find for my friends and I was the original Toxic Shock release of Treepeople's "Guilt, Regret, Embarrassment" (the K Records re-release was missing 7 songs in case anyone cares). I went straight to the "T" section for 7 years. When I finally found it, I actually had a slight feeling of panic that someone would see it in my hands and snatch it. Anyways, now that I can find any album on line in minutes, it's been nice having something to replace that missing thrill.
