    It won't be that fun spending 4 or 5 hours outside in that ridiculous, multi-layered outfit.

    Casey laying down the law. Honestly unless you are super good at golf or obviously someone who has never played and is not taking anything seriously(although people will probably have a bone to pick about that) I have no idea why you would wear that or how it would be considered acceptable.(maybe like dudes who wear flamboyant skeet blankets you have a need for attention or something to prove?) I just wear a polo and some uniqlo chinos and I am a single digit handicap golf if about the game the people you are playing it with now about what you are wearing especially when it is as gimmicky as that. (None of this is directed towards cap I remember his story behind wearing that and how next year a contest will be held in the spirit of his original kit) if you think you can pull it off and are comfortable in it more power to you I am just trying to let you know what other golfers will think.

    Almost forgot about this. Remember the link to the gold Fay blazer a few zillion posts back? It turned out to be this:

    Yes. More realtalk, less cheerleading.

    Picked up a pair of AE Leeds in shell. They aren't my usual size but they fit like they were made for me.

    I hadn't noticed that until I saw the picture. Next time I wear that jacket, I'll take a look as I had always thought the shoulders fit. Either I wasn't paying attention or the photo was a bit off due to my arms. Possibly both.


    They're ivory, but I do have white pants I wear in the summer :devil:


    Thanks! Those trousers fit me well and it's silly that I only wear them 3-4 times per year :confused:


    I mostly throw them up there for the fun of it, but I always welcome critique. It's the best way to get unbiased opinions on what should be changed or corrected. I'm sure plenty of people don't care to get feedback on their looks, but I assume everyone knows that they open themselves up to criticism/comments when they upload photos. All in all, I'm sure most of us are just trying to have fun and enjoy them hobby!

    Hmm just had a nice thrift at a local GW. It was looking pretty bad but then I spotted these shoes, Zintala Loafers, no sizing but they fit me perfect. From my limited googling these are Lattanzi :) not bad for $5.00 Haven't had a chance to clean them up yet though.

    Oh got a nice staple Banana Republic Charcoal Suit in a 38R for the bay too.

    Found a nice bike jersey today that begs a couple of questions... First, how do you search for this online? Second, would this be ironic listing?

    I found a couple odd balls while out and about today:

    Lanvin Dress Shirt with (I think?) Pearl buttons? They feel cold to the touch and gritty to the teeth. I am not sure how else to test, it's just so weird. Made in Italy tagged sz 42. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Everything is available, if you so fancy!

    Yea, I thought so as well. Also, I am doing some googling, and it looks like they are glass swarovski buttons

    If they are pearls, take them to the jewlers and convert them to earings. Nice gift to your mom...

    I just couldn't pull the trigger on these pants today, even though it's 20% off for seniors.


    Flat front and they fit like a 31 or 32 (sized 46 euro) but the legs were far too 'relaxed' for my tastes. Inseam was probably around 32 as well. Made in Peru? If someone wants them, I can go back tomorrow (full price, sorry) and get them unless everyone yells at me for leaving them behind and wants me to consign with them. :happy:

    ALSO...

    I found a pair of Ralph Lauren Polo Country mocs for SWMBO that were only slightly down at the heels, which I usually leave behind. No pics since she grabbed them and put them on before I could even shoot some Lysol up inside them.

    Here's a photo of the label I snagged off the web.

    Is 'Polo Country' good stuff?

    Dude, if you think this at all elevates your risk of exposure to something, next time you use a restroom - any restroom- google the phrase "fecal veneer".
