    Expensive weekend on ebay...

    New - Ralph Lauren Polo Brown Moleskin Jacket - Seller has a good reputation [​IMG]

    16 New hand-rolled solid colour Pocket Squares

    A pair of supposedly 'worn once' Edward Green Black Chelsea's for £149 on BIN - seemed too good a price to risk the auction and fills the Black Oxford Cap gap in my rotation.

    What model of gloves did you get? Im interested in getting a pair.

    The model is "Tiffany" in Navajo brown with no points.

    I picked up my bespoke glasses over the weekend, any item that is claimed to be handmade and/or custom needs approval by the forum of course[​IMG] .
    Probably the one of my most eccentric+anachronistic items.
    Trying to make some phat guido flair photos was also fun.

    Very nice specs speaking as someone who has had to wear them for 53 years....

    Nice glasses Cravate.

    My first pair of Chester Jeffries gloves arrived in the post today. Seems decent enough for the price. Very good fit. The color and fur lining are nice.

    I have a fur lined pair and I like them, but the fur is not very durable (it is rabbit).

    Yes- I've wondered about how it will wear. But heck, it's so soft on my dry winter hands! [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]

    I'm just hoping we don't have too warm a spring...

    Shout if you find a Navy blazer in cord/moleskin in the same size!

    It sheds, but it's not terrible. I do like them, and when I get my act together I'm going to order a new fur-lined pair and an unlined pair.

    I am intrigued by the knit Bedford, Alan. You're going all streetwear on us.

    I'm trying to up my cred.

    You'll like the Bedford. It's right up your alley. Vox posted a recent pic wearing one. Mine will show up in a WAYWT pic soon.

    Good to hear- and dammit- I have been meaning to grab a couple of your knit ties. [​IMG]
