    That is a nice shade of nail polish you are wearing.

    Thanks.

    Not my hand. Don't wear polish. ("Not that there's anything wrong with that")

    My wife was asking whether she should kop for me.

    The reason I thought fake is that the lines weren't bleeding on the Gucci mark. lining and keep looked OK.

    I get most of my shoe supplies from this seller.

    If he doesn't have what you are looking for, send him a message. Chances are he has it, jut not listed or can get it to you quick.

    So that Rive Gauche jacket I posted yesterday has an interior cuff button. It isn't just a folded under fourth button but an actual designed feature. Anyone seen this before? My guess is that this was so someone could “show off” their high end surgeons cuffs by unbuttoning the lowest exterior cuff button and this would keep it fastened and not blowing around.

    Sadly found a repair on the Brioni as well as a couple small stains on the sleeve. Still an awesome piece.

    Yessir! Although I believe we thrift in different areas. School starts back soon and I have a bad feeling about the pickings in Athens...

    Are you sure it hasn't been tailored to a shorter length, and is just folded underneath? Its hard to really see from this pics. But I think that would leave a gap between button 1 and 3 - if my looking at that correctly.
