    Waifu and I went to Budapest last year in May. LOVED IT SO MUCH! Such a beautiful city. Best of both metropolitan areas, museums, churches, and beautiful landscapes on the Buda side of the river. Even Roman ruins in O'Buda. Couldn't recommend it enough.

    Couple finds from yesterday and today:

    England shirt for my son to wear during World Cup this summer:

    [​IMG]

    Two PRL Madras shirts in medium for the Socs. Don't know why the pics are sideways, but whatever. Available:

    Recent (I believe) Canali for me:

    Favorite find of the day are these Vuarnet 006 glasses. I assumed they are vintage because I haven't seen Vuarnets in years. Back in the 80s, it was all about these and RayBans (and glacier glasses). But I they are pretty minty so I took a look online and see that they are still making Vuarnets and selling for $350-$490, which is bonkers.

    Unless I'm reading that tag wrong.

    I'm not in the market, but I can imagine how super comfortable that thing must be to wear + reputable seller = $$$$ The need has been generated.

    Not backpacked, but I did stay a few places super cheap (like, $7 a night, back when)...I had friends at Loyola Chicago and they went to the Rome campus for a year, so I visited during the summer and stayed in the dorms (which were pretty much empty and had the room to myself). If you are affiliated with a college that has overseas campuses, or know anyone who is, it's an option to check out.


    Just got home. Pics in a few. Nothing spectacular.

    Did have a question on one item I grabbed (@capnwes probably the best to direct this one to) - how would one describe this vintage tweed? Something Norfolk-y / action-back-y?

    Anything unique about the inside pockets? I sold an Orvis sporting/hunting/fishing jacket a week or so ago that looked like a standard-ish 2 button sport coat from the outside with patch pockets, but had quite a few extra patch pockets on the inside.
