    Three things.

    1. Nice finds. I would wear all of that.

    2. Great photography. You've got some excellent lighting (I'm assuming natural) and I'd kill to get that look for my ebay auctions.

    3. Get a cover on that outlet in the shoe photos. That's a safety hazard, and there is no excuse for it.

    Finally got to wear my Tux outfit. 100% Discount/Ebay/SF Members all paid for by shhhhhhh (selling on ebay)..... yes yes, the left sleeve cuff has to come down 1/6" and my left pant leg was not sitting correct, but overall I'm really happy with the look and got a TON of compliments from everyone [​IMG] Exactly the look I was going for. A vest is on the list but prob need to get one custom made and cost almost as much as the Tuxedo itself cost.

    - Isaia Tuxedo - 1 Button, Grosgrain Peak Lapel, Unvented (exactly what I wanted)
    - Thomas Pink Tuxedo Shirt
    - Polo Ralph Lauren Grosgrain Diamond Bowtie
    - Ralph Lauren Purple Label Cummerbund
    - Ralph Lauren Purple Label (Edward Green) Opera Pumps with Grosgrain Bow
    - Tom Ford White Linen Pocket Square

    I assume everyone's snapping shots for their epic Memorial Day Weekend finds. Here's my contribution.

    WOOL! (and cotton)
    Banana Republic cotton cardigan for me to wear at beach bonfires. Brooks Bros made-in-Canada trousers (N/A).Gran Sasso wool/silk blend, L (available). Paul Stuart alpaca, M (available). St. Michael cashmere, 44" (available once it's cleaned).
    [​IMG]

    PRL madras BD, Large (available). GAP OCBD, AE LaSalle's in great shape.
    [​IMG]

    L to R, Top: Robert Talbot BOC x2, Unknown, Zegna wool/silk, Bert Pulitzer
    Paul Smith, BB Makers, Carrol & Co., BB Makers. I'm on the fence re: keeping the Zegna and the Carroll & Co. I don't need them but ...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    BTW - anyone know this label? [​IMG]

    Gianluca Napoli jacket, 42R. (Are there trousers for this somewhere?)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Nordstrom Loro Piana cashmere blazer. Size 40, and Nordstrom won't flip for much, so I'm leaning toward keeping it; and Corneliani suit, NA.

    Big thanks and shout-out to 1ofTheCoolKids for driving me to thrift stores all over town, and for letting me try on more style than I've seen all year!

    Nataku, well done!!! A very provocative display. I normally don't go for such stuff, but those were pieces of art I'm sure someone could rock to no end. Hope to see a couple on you, maybe. Definitely a great welcome back to the thread after end-of-semester craziness.

    Brian, great fit! I know where you're going to be x-posting...
    Eddie, what a great classic tux! I think the double-breasted 6x2 is the most elegant a tux can get, with the 1-button single-breasteds close seconds.

    Taking the derivative of a constant, regardless of value, yields zero.
