    BW made solid shoes--I suspect that's the consensus. My only complaint is that the leather seems a tad plasticky, but nothing like, say, Dexter. Minimal flip value, but they will flip. Better, though, to keep them for personal use if they fit.

    Last week there was a group of teenagers who got to the coat rack before me and one of them took a really nice looking overcoat that was 5 sizes too big for him and wore it around the store. It killed me that I couldn't check what it was.

    I don't really know too much about the Valentino hierarchy, but this is the good stuff, right? Appears to be unworn, made in Italy, Shawl collar, single button, besom pockets still basted shut, unvented with flat front trousers. Pretty much everything you'd want from a tux.......in my size!!!!!! :slayer: :slayer: :slayer: :slayer: $12 N/A, came on the original hanger.

    I believe most of it is crap. This one happen to set off all the alarms for high quality though.

    I also saw a Vicunaire topcoat. 90% virgin wool, 10% vicuna.....completely trashed. Still cool to see though.

    Does the vicuña feel awesome or it's meh?

    Are you talking about the vicuna blend, or real vicuna?

    Real vicuna feels amazing. When I wear my vicuna coat, I literally cannot stop touching it. I have guanaco, cashmere, camelhair, various wools, etc,etc and the vicuna really does have the best hand, to my taste, at least.

    One of the best uses of vicuna I've found is actually to let me wear lighter clothes and just the lighter coat (it's a car-coat type piece, sort of) for longer into the cold season than I could with other types of fabric. It's really a wardrobe-extending choice - I could see why some oil baron might think it's worth dropping truckloads of money on if the price isn't an object.
