    Small haul, but nice stuff:

    what does the ***** indicate? is this just the new label? The only other time I've seen it is on Napoli Couture, but the shirts on eBay actually say "napoli couture" this one does not, and it's a sport shirt, not a dress shirt.

    But I bet it fits nice, and it's rare and expensive and probably missing from the web site whenever you happen to want one, any one, for me being to just give you my moneys, god-damn-it, you lose, good day sir! :angry:

    I did find me some new BB Regent fits, though; wool, flat front, and in my size. So that was nice -- *brag*

    I think after failing to sell a 4K suit on b&s, I'll have to stick to one pick-up in my size per year, it looks like... :violin:

    IMO B&S sucks these days.... not to get too off-topic, but I use to do about 25-30% sales on B&S and now it 1%, no joke, probably under 1% actually.

    FYI, Drakes has done at least SOME private label stuff for Aquascutum, so I'd keep an eye out for the old MD on the tag (I have one).

    Ok fellas.

    Going to a wedding this evening. Not as formal as the usual wedding. The groom is the drummer in a punk rock band and most of the groomsmen are in the band. They aren't doing tuxes, just tan suits and ties. (Footwear was provided by The SEAM Store).

    So....what should I wear? I feel my go-to dark blue suit and a traditional glen plaid wedding tie will be too much. Should I drop down to a sport coat?

    Seems like a busy area! I'm more in Etobicoke though. That main intersection has been my go to spot as it's fairly close by to me and has a few stores within a 5 minute walk. I tend to stay out of downtown unless I'm feeling lucky, haha.

    The suit would be fine, although it sounds like you won't be out of place in a navy blue sport coat and khakis.

    Nah, none of that, I just asked if anybody has thrifted in Egypt and Atlnoob said probably some gold, and I said put me in the 24k club, as I'll be going there soon. :)

    I also picked up a sick Aqua 5 mackintosh trench from the 60's a few months ago. Some of the vintage stuff is really nice.
