    Arcadia "So Red the Rose" is highly underrated. Simon LeBon/Duran Duran side project. Sting helps out on one of the songs. Good stuff....I've got the cassette somewhere LOL.

    And Nati area guys....if you are interested in catching a good show....Built to Spill is going to be at Southgate House Revival in September. Yours truly is planning on being there.

    Every one of those is excellent except for Robin Hitchcock. Great Haul.
    You can get CD of Arcadia with loads of extras on it. Very under rated and better than a lot of DD stuff.

    This thread is on fire lately!!! [​IMG] Shell Indy's....W.T.F.....Bunch of other insane pickups lately as well..

    Been somewhat dry lately, and haven't gotten out as much as I like, but here are a few pickups from the last week or so....

    NWOB leather & ostrich shoes from Giorgio's of Palm Beach....I think someone asked about them a week or so ago in regards to a shirt...
    They are apparently known for their alligator and ostrich shoes and bags....

    I was going through the jackets and felt something weird on my hand. Someone had spat on a jacket...at least I think that's what it was. Be careful out there. [​IMG]

    Catching up on pages and pages of posts. Saw a post asking about tie narrowing. Replied instead of quoted so my post a few back lacks a little context.

    In any case, to whomever was asking, that was me.

    Hope I'm not blowing up anyone's spot, but this seems like a great e-thrift. Lining issue does look repairable, though I could be wrong. 100% cashmere...

    Attaboy, fellas. :fonz: I bet those Brooksies will dimple up nicely when you knot them. My stoopid Nicole Miller wouldn't hold a dimple no matter how much I worked the knot. Those black silks are keepers.

    Authentication help requested.

    The leather is soft and they seem well made, but other than that, not sure what to look for.
