    [​IMG] My walk-in is packed to the brim with suits, dress shirts, pants and jackets. It was a box for right now or to fold them and then I would never know what is under the top 10.

    Grabbed a pair of well worn loafers. Once again, too big for me.

    Sure wish they were a size smaller.

    This one has a water or sweat stain in the lining of the right shoulder, but it's also one of my favorites in terms of pattern and weight for summer. I assume the lining could be laundered or outright replaced.

    found a couple of good things at the goodwill today.

    pair of santoni cap toe in great shape and in my size. $3.99!!! puts my johnston and murphy to shame
    [​IMG]

    tissot rock watch, circa 1985. needs a battery but going to put new one in and give it to my mom for her birthday. pretty interesting watch. but $2.99 can't beat it. didn't expect a any decent swiss watch to be among all the junk walmart watches
    [​IMG]

    and finally a narrow tie, deff vintage, says Krutz mens shop madison NJ on back. 1.99$ any one have info on the company?

    not bad for $9.60[​IMG]

    I think until the early 70's, In Italy a baby's legal name had to come from the bible.

    Not just names, but many modern expressions come from the bible ......the writing's on the wall, scapegoat, etc,

    Just avoid "Onan"........

    Big up! Got myself some large and 35 waist. Hoping for awesomeness. The coverall jacket I got a little while back on sale is bloody awesome.

    Yeah, I'm hoping for a jacket too. My size wasn't available for jeans, which is alright since I already own three pairs of Tellasons... I'm still not sure about those Ladbroke Groves. They fit okay, except in the calves... Damned cyclist legs.

    Patterns and colors on those Oxxfords are some of the nicest I've ever seen. Congrats. That's great stuff.

    Lol. Very interesting, I've never heard that names had to come from the Bible.

    technically, they had to be named after a saint. they celebrate both their birthday and their namesake's day.
