Holy shit thats a nice tie.
For me, Gaziano & Girling "Wigmore", special Armoury edition boot.
Nice purchases. I am saving up for a Vanda.
So I started with the Jos. A. Bank junk, and I'm phasing it out - I now have a couple of BB sportcoats, and a Crittenden Sport sportcoat/vest that I love, but haven't had the money to replace suits until recently.
Having said that, I just picked up a couple of Samuelson suits over the weekend. They're at the tailor now, and can't wait to get them back. I feel like I finally have a real wardrobe with this pickup.
Anyways, I spent about $850, before alterations, and picked up:
- Navy Samuelson suit - all wool birdseye with a bit of roping on the shoulder. This is also my first venture into pants with side-tabs, and I'm looking forward to that experiment
- Tan Samuelson suit - wool/linen with a very soft shoulder - a killer casual option. Also my first venture in the patch pocket field (shop owner said he went for patch pockets so the coat could double as an odd jacket)
- Grey linen sportcoat - not sure of the maker (shop owner said its an italian company that makes pants for him, and plays around with some odd jackets). Soft shoulder and patch pockets on this too. Great travel/relaxed weekend piece.
I thought I missed his winter sale, but I just got lucky enough to wait until things were 80% off. He's also closing out his Aldens (says there's too many places in town that carry them), so if he has anything left in my size in a few weeks, I may grab some of those too.
I'll try to post pics once I pick everything up, but I couldn't wait to brag.
Thinking about special-ordering a grey 3-piece at the next Samuelson trunk show - these will be a good trial of different options, though.
yeessssss my RLPL tie, via spoos pony express!!
go buy stuff from spoo, quick hurry!!
damn fine tie stitch! and if it werent for teh internet bigtymer spoo, my closet would be full of jos A bank shit. (ok maybe not THAT bad)
Omega Speedmaster is on its way to me as of now.. Will update with pictures.
Hoping for a cooler day so I can break in one of these all-wool beuts:
Damn! That's a great looking tie.
So, on January I decided to refresh my wardrobe. I bought some shoes, a blazer and a suite.
Brook Brothers Tweed Blazer
An Alexander McQueen Suit from Mr.Porter in an incredible price. Here is the Jacket and the Trousers.
The Shanghai I bought them from Barneys for 60% off.
Comments are welcome.
thanks guys! and yeah, i owe much of my wardrobe to the resident bigtimer.
The resident bigtimer has definitely helped guide my style and bolster my tie collection.
Dark denim and grey flannel pants work well. Also lighter colored chinos. See aj_del's suede jacket thread for some good pictures.

and so humble, lol.
