    I've seen a couple RLPL and a couple Versace total, ever, at Marshall's (never found anything notable at TJX beyond Made in China Duchamps), but they were always hideously ugly.

    I guess this qualifies for this thread. Shirt was from a trade from someone whose name I can't recall, and tie was a trade (or something?) with Spoo.

    Midway through work. The spring weather went to my head today.

    Those hideously ugly ties sell pretty well I think.

    Also, I found a brioni SC at one of those stores once. It was like 500 bucks though :/

    Those boots are fantastic! I'm assuming since you are an 11 that they are nowhere near a 10.5. :smarmy:

    Amadar, it's finds like that that keep me checking back at my local Marshall's. Last I was there, they had some Dior and Zegna ties marked down super low, but they all had massive pulls in them, so obviously a no go.

    HansderHund, dope SC and PS, makers?

    Thanks! The SC is Tagliatore, partially lined wool with a bit of cotton. Great spring weight. The PS is a homemade job using silk from Pierre Cardin. The silk was outrageously priced, so I bought just enough to make a couple of squares.

    Nice job! I've been meaning to try my hand at making a few squares.

    I'm sure you'd be a natural at it. I enjoy it and it's a good excuse to own tons of them. Doing a repetitive activity like that is actually rather relaxing. Though I don't make clothes, I really enjoy going to the fabric places and seeing what's on offer.

    +1 I have been making my own squares for a while now, and they just give you something that you cant't buy. A comlpetely one-off square. It takes 10 mins to hand sew one. Everybody should give it a try. Because the the options are endless.

    ^ I assume you're doing some sort of flat stitch? If you're rolling the hems, I must definitely be doing something wrong as it takes me a quite a bit longer to stitch them.

    Here are a few recent ones I've made:

    Cotton

    Thanks! Tie was sent from Spoo, I think it's the first time I've worn it. I do like it, though it's a bit loud (not a problem for me).

    Do you have a link or resource for how to do it? I have a few shirts that are dying, but I think the pattern would make good squares and I'd love to repurpose them for that!

    Your squares are gorgeous! I might do that with some scarves I picked up thinking they were squares as well.

    Thanks!

    I'll see what I can come up with once I make it home after work. You really just need to master a single type of stitch. Practice goes a long way, not to mention patience. Scarves work, I have a couple of wool prints that I found NWT that will be squares soon. I paid €1 each for them and the fabric at the shop would have cost considerably more.

    @RTC, where did you see the AE 2 for 250? I can't find any official times on the internet haha, only that it was rescheduled from the end of Feb to mid-late March.
