    Buongiorno!

    Don't you hate it when you finally got them rocked back to bed, and you stand up and bump something or make an noise and you need to start all over again?

    Fuck, that was the worst.

    Yeah I took shitty pictures of it but it's actually the state of the cloth that made me said that. It's ultra crisp, no peeling anywhere, the edges of the sleeves are also really crisp. There are also some white thread stitches under the collar (but a previous owner could have forget to remove them). But I wouldn't bet the house on it you know [​IMG]

    Tombolinis have NO resale value on eBay and I will not list it anyway, it's a personal find. I don't care if it's 10 years old or 10 days, this jacket is SO awesome [​IMG]

    Was sure she was back asleep at 4. Got up to put her in the crib and she says, "우유." (milk)

    Look down and eyes are wide open. :sadpanda:

    Anybody have experience with dry cleaners damaging your items and how it was handled? Have a Yegna SC that I picked up yesterday and they somehow managed to put an 1.5" cut in one of the lapels.

    Yes. Cashmere sweater came back with a hole in it. Was refunded cost of dry cleaning and nothing else. That was their policy, clearly posted on the wall. Took my lumps and stopped using them.

    Hey guys,

    Sadly, I'm on an island now with no thrift stores, so I might be a tad inactive with hauls for a while.

    All the same, here's my thrift fit for the week. A little something different.

    Entirely e-thrifted / thrift funded.

    I know someone who sued and it doesn't help much due to the preowned aspect

    Naw bro. The sleeves and yoke area were too tight. But those were outside of the SF approved measurements. All good. I still dig the shirt. It's very different than my other denim shirts. The fabric is soft and a bit stretchy. I think it's because the weave is a bit loose. I might trade it for a L of the same model. lol

    Popped into my favourite little (it's tiny) thrift store and stumbled across a blue/grey cotton Dolce & Gabana sport coat with a very interesting/distinctive liner for the cost of a large #3 at McDonalds. Oh and a brand new french cuffed charles tyrwhitt shirt for $1
