    Sigh. Too lazy to quote everyone, but I clearly am not of the same mind as most. Oh well. I haven't posted my finds here anyway in months, so it doesn't really matter. Like DM7, I can't much be bothered to anymore. And feelings of thread entropy, I suppose. I have made it a point to make just one relevant post after shitting all over the thread the last few times I have, then disappear for a few months. So I'll continue the trend I guess.


    All are from today

    Recent burberry in grey, and very recent HBoss navy orphan. No pants to be found, but both could potentially be rocked as SC, although the navy obviously better suited for it.

    This should go to someone on here because it will be appreciated. RL Signature, ticket pocket, dual vented, notch lapel (i would say low gorged, but not crazy). Quality has been said to be lower than purple label but above corneliani polo, this seems pretty accurate, this is fully canvassed.

    +1 as well - even though I am still extremely new to posting, I've been reading for several months and the progression of the thread is what propelled me to want to create an account, and join and (eventually if my tailor will give them back to me!) post pictures of some of my finds. I haven't actually explored around much of SF other than this thread; ironically, I don't really have to dress up for work (computer guy - work at home 3 days a week). I don't wear neckties (but I *do* wear bolo ties, which 70k+ posts into this thread I haven't seen one mentioned so I will redouble my efforts to thrift one merely so I can post it). But I like knowing the quality and the immense knowledge that you guys have. If this thread had been closed, I would have never found that, and been inspired to join the community.

    There are two philosophies that relate to recipes and cooking but seem applicable to this idea as well - one is that your best recipes should remain secret known only to you, and the other is that recipes are meant to be shared and improved upon with others. I favor the later; recipes (and knowledge) not shared eventually dies.

    No one begrudges that. Let's just keep the thread focus on the "doing something I love" part rather than the "selling things for money" part. :slayer:

    Also, didn't mean to take a dig directly at you, Spoo. It just seemed that the thread was getting carried away with visions of dollar signs.

    thought it was a woman's at 1st but buttons like a man's and tagged size 40....feels like one of those natural car chamois'
    a little research (i.e. google) seems to show Ian Mankin as a English fabric & leather supplier/weaver...
