    Have some discount store finds. Thanks for the heads up on TJ Maxx whoever that was, and great discount finds by all of you as well! Every time I go to one particular TJ Maxx I seem to have very good luck with the ties.

    2/3 of the most awesome herringbone tweed suit, so love this thing, I think I can pull it off with jeans.
    First thing I've ever found with "action back". That's a cool feature, allows for a slimmer fit without the sleeves pulling when you reach for something.
    Yes that's a stain on the left shoulder, doesn't look too serious.

    Fantastic Cashmere Brioni blazer, 42, but t-rex arms, wonder if the button holes are fake enough to move. 22" maybe 2" in the sleeve.

    there was a time -- when ruthless records was still in business -- when i would buy every single new release on vinyl, album, ep or maxi single, by all the associated artists. good times, indeed -- still have all the records.

    I didn't forget them, I just don't particularly rate them, or Beams Lights or a lot of their other ever-proliferating number of lines... however, I would agree that the general quality of Beams stuff is still better than its nearest US equivalents, whatever line we're talking about, despite the generally agreed decline as the company has expanded production.

    ... And I'm now trolling craigslist for cribs. If anyone sees something with a modernish bent that can be shipped to Atlanta for relatively cheap, get at me.
