    I couldn't find the trousers for the canali jacket I found. Sad day. Then I found 2 small holes in the back of the jacket and felt better about my sad sad sad life.

    Then I went to a party and everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

    Rant is awesome, but I'll always appreciate Vonnegut more--defo read more of him. Picked up 60s Italian made globe bookends few weeks ago, too. Love uniquebookends.


    Wish the bases were, but they're filled metal--most likely cast iron. I don't think they were super high end, but definitely better than average quality.

    Those #'s don't match up. 52 to 54 and the modello #. Am I missing something?

    Has anyone, per chance, got a pair of size 10 Bass bucks?

    They have to be Bass because its the only maker I know my size in. I have a pair of 10 1/2M brown suede Bass bucks I'm willing to trade or sell.

    I did that right after I started in August. Loro Piano medium gray jacket and pants from 2 separate BB Golden Fleece suits. I only noticed because the pants looked really small and the jacket was long. I still don't know what the odds are. Lets see you need to have started with two identical suits but different sizes. Not unusual. Then you need both owners to donate in fairly close proximity in both place and time, and then you need to lose the alternating jacket or pants. Hmmmmmm.

    Nataku, MZHammer and any other Minnesotans who were at the GW opening the other night. Y'all missed out on this sweet-ass Legion of Doom satin jacket.

    Wanted to post my little cashmere collection from the past couple weeks before I say goodbye. Not the greatest, but still soft as hell!

    Um guys...
    I just found a zegna double breasted jacket and the pants. Should I have looked for a vest too?

    Also found a canali SC, BB suit, and a bb blazer with union tags from the 49 trademark I think.

    Omg I'm freaking out lol.
