    A few more things from today. Nothing crazy but it pays for the gas at least.

    Nope, Crabb's Tropical Treat...this predates the E-40 fat burger by a long shot. Since 1953.

    A few years ago, I ordered around 4PM on opening day. The burgers weren't available for pickup until after 9PM. It's kindofa big thing around here.

    Thanks! These are about as sporty as my shoes come though, unless you count the Airforce 180 Charles Barkley's. :hide:



    Those are badass, I would wear the hell out of em'. Nice to see another new guy reading from the beginning too! :fonz:



    Yes they are, and in my size too. Are they shell as well?

    A quick trip today.

    Started with a Dobbs stingy brim Fedora/Trilby in my size. Haven't yet tried to determine date, but I've never even heard of the men's store that sold it, so it must be a little old. I'll most likely be headed down to the Brass Rooster to get it cleaned up a bit before wearing. (No pics yet, still looks beat up, but once it's ready I'll grace you with one.)

    Also found what I think is my first RLBL tie? Confirmation?

    Then some shirts:
    Viyella by Lands' End
    [​IMG]

    Some BB Linen
    [​IMG]

    And is this the Canali I'm looking for? I really don't know shirts, just learning that field.
    [​IMG]

    Last question, has anyone ever heard of Notari Bologna? I've never heard of it, and can't find anything on the web.

    Not sure about the Nori stuff but cop that RLBL and Canali. Those are cool finds.

    Yes. I believe the shade is whisky. Highly desirable, is my understanding.

    Damn, just missed it.

    Edit. lol, there must have been just one left. I had it in my cart on my iPad and completed transaction there.

    I love this colour but could use some advice on how and with what exactly to wear this...

    Ah so THAT's where Coppley came from. I'd been meaning to ask. I've had a couple things, seen a bunch of it and recognized it as better than Banana Rep or whatever but I'd always wondered. I have some Harry Rosen brand trou, too, hanging in the closet. Knew it'd never flip but some of those are half-lined, nice fabric, etc
