    Best part is that I'm gonna go back and buy a couple more things once this stuff sells. Which is why I'm asking cash only for people interested.

    Spent like 8 hours out yesterday with a couple of Brooks Brothers sweaters to show for it and that's about it. Followed that with my hard drive crashing and me spending today installing new ones and seeing how much I can save. :fu:

    Not to be a dick, but the lsat is a bit of a cake walk compared to the bar (and law school, and being a lawyer....)

    But good luck. Remember, its just a test.


    (Predictable: ). Check thy pm.

    NWT Giordana bib shorts in my size for $4? Sweet. Now I can finally see if these goofy things are as comfy as everyone says.

    Guys - Quick question:

    A Cantarelli tailor 100% cashmere (Loro Piana) coat, SB, camel-coloured, made in Italy. to be had for 80€.
    The listing says it's been worn twice, and I can try it on before buying...
    kop or no kop?

    What's the quality of Cantarelli tailor anyways?

    Thanks man! Actually I haven't been there in awhile. That's been there since last week if I recall correctly. Cool piece for sure but am pretty picky these days.

    @SpooPoker Thanks! [​IMG]
    Will post pictures if I do get it..


    Aaaanyways, London trip over... Surprising amounts of US stuff, much more than anywhere else in the UK...
    I got some stuff, but it's at the tailor's ATM, so here are some of the more interesting passes:

    [​IMG]
    My size, fit well, but an obvious orphan... UGH
    I still count it as a pop [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Too big, too worn, too cool...

    [​IMG]
    Two of these shirts, one of them in the nicest light blue, both my size.
    These must have been ironed with a hammer... Seriously, the gauntlet buttons made a hole through the other side of the sleeve... On both shirts!

    It's true what they say about London town: People here buy the nice stuff, and actually wear it... To death.

    It's unfortunate when passes are better than what you end up getting, but that's life for you...
    Still, can't really complain, I got two suits in my size, just what I needed... Got a nice suit rotation now, so I'm ready for a job suit-wise.

    Just need to find one now [​IMG]
    Anyone know of any good spots to thrift a job??
