    HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014)

    lol- I was thinking the opposite! Unbuttoned with a very conscientious outfit looks deliberate and artificial/affected to my eye. Unbuttoned in context of a slightly less put together look (whatever the quality— I mean the way the clothes are worn) seems more consistent and contributes to the...

    Ok- let’s forget bond and discuss something even nicer than that brioni suit. ethrift/ but meets or exceeds all of the thread’s stringent standards ;)

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    Lol bond cosplay isn’t my goal. Heck, Ian Fleming doesn’t, as I recall, mention the tailor of bonds’ dinner suits in his books (you all likely know better than I, it’s been some years since I read them), so what’s a guy to do!!?? ? More seriously- the purpose of giving you all the date was to...

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    Tbh i don’t know. The only issue that really bothers me is the back middle of the waistband, right on the crease/edge. So my guess is that my tailor will want to use a bit of extra fabric from inside one of the seams to patch it, with the expectation that he can do it with very little visible...

    Shoot- you’re right! But Russia w love is like 6 years too early (why I didn’t use it... Then I just used first title I thought of that was a bit later...oops) you only live twice.... I should have hit Wikipedia the first time :) that was 1967... the dupioni silk brioni dinner suit is 1968...

    Ethrift. grail to me. well under 5%. all I need to do is take in the waist in coat and pants about an inch each, fix a bit of fraying that’s no big deal... feels like wearing air.... if someone on this thread sold this to me, THANK YOU. Seems like it’s stolen from Sean Connery (RIP- the GOAT)...

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

    Or, more simply- vote for the principles your grandmother taught you. That will allow you to feel good about your treatment of others and buy more expensive shoes. if you vote for what Gordon gekko taught you, many fewer of you will buy nice shoes— more shoemakers will go out of business— and...

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

    On an absolute basis, people’s quality of life has improved in US (and many other places). Many people can, for instance, access the vast majority of the worlds knowledge instantly, from a computer in their pocket. Bread is way cheaper. It’s harder to starve. However economics are inherently...

    Thread question— If I do a trade with someone overseas (US to Europe), should I cover some of their VAT, or is that all on them?

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    Julbo still makes killer ski and mountaineering goggles/lenses— heavy emphasis on high quality transitional tech to make the lenses get darker/lighter. Great for northern New England and other places where variable climate is necessary to get good snow. I rode in them for years- but they seemed...

    Thanks! Seems like you cracked that one fast. Only castangia I’ve held onto are a couple suede coats, so I never thought to match the tags. Right quality level too. the coat you sold was pretty terrific too btw

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    Recent ethrift. Definitely fits all the price “rules” I’ve reviewed every thread dedicated to manufacturer tags and consulted with some of the smarter folks I know from this thread. No dice. Combined with someone’s recent crack on me for not posting actively, I figured I’d put this question to...

    Look, man, you are very much misreading my posts. Especially the npr link. That said, I probably am an asshole by your definition. And I didn’t mean to harsh the thread, so I apologize for that. however, I encourage you to do something - and if you already are doing something, I commend you

    “Nice, white people who really aren't doing anything other than being nice people are racist. We are complicit with that system. There is no neutral place.” I’m cool with being a rando.

    Lol you didn’t read my whole post, because I was saying what you just wrote, more or less, while encouraging you and hopefully everyone else to take action. That said, if my asking what someone is going to to do to solve a problem he’s going on about makes me an asshole, then perhaps you’re...
