Sorry to hear about the trouble @SpooPoker !

Popping back in here because my quarterly closet cleanup is now live. For reference, I'm 6' tall and normally a US Large.

Begg Wispy Cashmere Scarf
1617460201901.png


Lightweight cashmere scarf from Begg. Wispy is the right way to describe it, it's incredible how light they're able to make this scarf.


Drakes Plaid Cashmere Scarf
1617460227199.png

Beautiful mixture of blues, reds, and greens.


Ovadia and Sons Cable Knit Cashmere Scarf

Pretty sure this was made by Scott and Charters. Nice chunky scarf.


CHCM Cable Knit Cotton Winter Polo - L

Part of CHCM's house brand line. Anyone who's shopped at CHCM or met Sweetu knows that he's got impeccable taste. The cable knit sweaters were a personal standout, but doesn't really match that well with my wardrobe these days.

GRP Bubble Knit - tagged V but prob more like a 3

Full disclosure, I'm pretty sure this went through a dry cycle and unfortunately shrank. Would not recommend for a 5, but a 3 or maybe lady partner would find this a better fit.

appreciate you looking. Everyone is OK. Two guys walked in the boutique today and it just felt off. Long story short one stole a Chanel bag. I ran after him outside (I know, I know) and he threatened to shoot me so I backed off. He ran off in a back street and hopped some fences. Nassau County PD was incredible and showed up nearly immediately. Within 10 minutes there were helicopters and the K9 unit canvassing the area. After a half hour they caught the guy and got the Chanel bag back. Not a fun experience but nobody was hurt and the merch was recovered and that asshole will be in a cell for quite some time.
Man... so glad you guys are okay!

Wow!!! Very, very glad to hear you + everyone at the store are ok and even more happy to hear the cops bagged the fucker. Props to Nassau County PD!

While I'm with you, my first reaction would be "fight back", in today's world it's a real danger - situations now escalate in a split second and too often with permanent, unrecoverable results. Heck, even with the best intentions some situations can blow up on social and/or news cycle and go out of control. I wish it was different but there's a mob out there and optics matter. Hopefully there's no next time, but now knowing how good your local law enforcement is, don't risk it.

^ thanks all for your kind words - and yes, thank god all worked out well. He was arraigned the other day and was formally charged with felony robbery, grand larceny, and menacing. He's facing 5-25 years. I gave him a choice too, several times - I told him to just give me the bag back and it would have been fine - he chose poorly.

BUT, moving on and upwards - our first box for our Epaulet program arrived on Friday which is awesome, so all you Epaulet fans out there get ready for some more heat!

And, to those of you celebrating Easter Sunday today I hope you had a great day and are ready to go buck nutty on the auctions ending in a half hour - good luck, the lot of you!

It's shitty how the NYC area is getting. Oyster Bay is a really nice part of LI, too.

Sorry to hear youy had this experience.

Next time I'm back home, I gotta stop in. I promise not to take a five fingered discount.

Sorry for late but indeed we are!

Tonight is the night for #menswear folks - there is a size 40/42 extravaganza happening in about a half hour, so if you have any interest in some ridiculously good stuff on the low, you best get out there.

Sorry for being MIA In posting, Ive been busy hunting and gathering!

Good luck all!

Missed out on that GRP. If anyone on here picked it up and it doesn't work out, let me know

Do you know what I don't need? Any of the stuff I just bid on.

Damnit Spoo, you did it to me again :)

I have a bunch of items up for auction with Luxeswap that are ending this weekend. Some of the listings which have not gotten much attention/bids to date are:


Sage de Cret field jacket in cotton blend. Great jacket, I just a have too many similar jackets in navy/blue and needed to slim down my wardrobe.


Lightly worn Rota cotton trousers in grey herringbone. Current no bids(!) Grab a fantastic pair of trousers for a bargain price.


Vetra shacket - listed as black but could be a very dark navy from memory. Only wore this 2-3 times. Again, only sent this to Spoo as I have too many blue jackets.


Two brand new pairs of Boglioli washed cotton trousers. Would have loved to kept these but unfortunately they are too small and I've accepted that they will probably never fit me.


Really nice APC khaki cotton chinos. Great hand on these and they feel great to wear but were always a slim fit and the extra COVID weight means they do not fit me anymore.
