sweet pickup, especially for free! Was saks sale anything good?
thanks! just wait til you see the coup de gras! also, colors are off in those pics. they all are way too bright.
saks was pretty meh. good for my brother, no dice for me. the gift card actually was worth $100. i only used half, and let him get a shirt with the rest.
when i read what i just wrote i become disgusted with myself.
Thanks, ID. I really like them. What I don't like, is that my ankles are having a fight with the top edges of the shoes; those are a bit thicker and stiffer than on my C&J Tetbury's. I hope I'll be fine after some effort (and pain...). I'll report back in a few weeks, if you're interested.
Pics dont really do this justice.
Quilted (on the inside) Luciano Barbera windbreaker type thing. Have had my eye on it for a while, finally caved.
I got their classic "Khaki", the oxford "light gray", slim "stone" and a classic navy in donegal wool. I've tried Epaulet, Howard Yount, and Panta, but these fit better, surprisingly.
Have you tried using a meat tenderizer? On the suede or your ankles, your choice.
Hey guys. I just drove down to LA and picked up a new car. I saw this as an awesome opportunity to stop by STF and see Ian. If you haven't had the chance, Ian is a great guy and I would absolutely recommend checking out the warehouse, it is unreal! Some purchases below:
Brioni shirt from a few days ago, just got it back from the tailor to get some darts put in.
Two Borelli shirts, X-Slim fit, AWESOME quality
Suede Santor Mantellase shoes, I loved the color of this particular suede, plus the simple toe.
I also picked up a Kiton purple/grey cashmere sport coat 38R drop 8 that I am having the sleeves finished as well as the sides taken in just a touch. Will post pictures of the SC as soon as I get that back from the tailor.
What does STF stand for? Which store?
Shop The Finest. shopthefinest.com If you want to schedule a warehouse appointment the information is on the home page at the bottom, Ian is quick to respond. A lot of Borelli/Barba/Finnamore shirts, Antollini Cesar, Kiton, Borelli suits and sport coats and some other goodies.
u liek my coat?
Jhors2 - great kops. the peeps at STF are awesome.
gotta see it in action. but i liked your comment about your shopping experience and snobbiness at SFA
lol, fair enough. i find for me, that SCs and jackets are the hardest things to photograph well. its a shame, it really is a lovely coat, doest show fully in the pics.
i need a mannequin, like malford and spoo.
im just not a fan of quilted jackets just as in the bay area we dont get cold enough to need anything like that. I wish it did get cold to wear them then I could see how that would be awesome.
today i purchased a navy napoli suit from suitsupply.
