    Not much this morning, but I know some of the smaller guys are always looking for coats so I picked up a 100% cotton navy J Crew blazer size 38r just in case. Nothing insane, but could be serviceable for Spring/Summer. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    [​IMG] Hey, you never know, he might let it go for less than $1xx. I might cop for that price. Also, I've never seen this gentleman on here before and he was asking whether it's a good pass so I figured he might let it go for cheap. Received the re-PM with the quote of an offer from another member, so I'm out. [​IMG] Anywho, but man, I give LeSacre big props for making it available on here along with the HF topcoats! How many of us would let it go on here?! That's what I thought! [​IMG][​IMG]
    Yeah man, it started to say "Monsi", not a good sign.

    Went back to the GW for the third time. What did I find?

    Yet another Flight Coat. Same size. Found it in the women's section. Good thing I looked.

    Also found this in the women's section. Usually pass over the 346 line, but the coat was too cool to pass up. I'm a sucker for patch pockets. A "noob" question I know, but this can't be a women's SC, right?

    Also found a E Zegna "Trofeo" jacket. Pretty sure it's an orphan so I'm going to keep and eye out for the pants.

    Dat Boglioli [​IMG]. I'd rather have that in my size than 10 Brionis.

    Impressed by your understanding of the thread etiquette. Shows you have done some reading. Awesome.


    Nothing impressive, but posting pictures is better than nothing, right?


    Didn't pick this up, but has anyone ever seen a DB cardigan?
    [​IMG]

    Finds have been so bare lately, I resorted to e-thrifting. Found this, which was completely mislabeled in three categories. Perfect all-navy staple.

    It was an orvis day... love the blackwatch one

    A few pocket squares (okay, so the white one is a small scarf, but totally workable)

    VV sweater, Small

    And for the old timers scouring the bay... Tommy Bahama silk blazer

    Edit: The most important thrifts....well, one was full retail...

    + 5,000!

    I've only ever owned 2 Bogs and a few Brionis and I'm completely sold on the Bogs due to styling and quality at the price point! Too bad, I had to let one go...But I do have that bomb ass cords SC from GMMcL! Props again! [​IMG]

    Boglioli? Sounds like some weird Italian crap. Prob not even available at the rack. Bolgheri on the other hand, that's the shit .

    How do you guys remove price stickers from the bottom of leather insoles? One of my thrifts has been putting like 15 price stickers all over the shoes :brick: The leather insole ones always leave a sticky residue. I've thought of rubbing alcohol but that's probably bad for the leather.

    I love Boglioli. Someone here (Ogre?) informed me that Etro uses Boglioli as their maker, so I'm keeping an eye on them as well. I may even go retail :)embar:) on a great suit I saw.

    Sir, there's no such thing as fighting dirty. There's only fighting!

    Getting sticker residue out of shoes - I have this problem a lot especially with VV stickers. I use a rough tea towel with warm water. Pat the label until the paper is soft and then rub back and forth until the paper rolls with the glue and peels off. Shake it out and continue. Usually the glue will dissolve with the water and heat from the friction. If not, you can roll it off with your thumb. Don't use acetone because it will dissolve whatever colouring/ink/foil is used on the sole for the designer name, etc. and leaves a big smudge. V.
