    So who makes the Tom Ford bag? Brits or Italians?

    It's made in Italy.

    Great suit. It was my understanding that an 'Oxxford' from this period should actually be 'Oxford' (with one 'x'). I'd love to see a pic of the label.

    Yeah, I didn't know that a few weeks ago when I was thrifting. I came across a few "Oxfords" and figured they were ripping off of Oxxford or using the name as exploitation to sell a knock-off waspy brand.

    If I had only known.

    Here's the tag:

    And some pics of the suit in action.

    ^Gorgeous. Feel free to send that my way when you're done with it.

    Interestingly, my 1950s Oxxford overcoat is also from Bullock & Jones.

    Do you fit a 1940s era 39? [​IMG] Fits like a modern 36.

    Oh, vanity sizing. How silly it is.

    this was definitely the first time in my life it made sense to go on such a spending spree... 2009 was a good year in the end resulting in this orgy of consumption.

    I *think* I am getting close to the point where I can post some regular pictures... this place is tough so want to have some "tried" outfits to post. will at least post some "porn" shots of goods soon. promise I will put something up in next few days, this weekend at the latest. The chapels, along with Jermyn 2, are getting vellum put on the soles and won't be back until friday... would love to include those.

    but point taken and not ignored

    ^my faves on your list are the Chapels and the Attolini trousers.

    speaking of which, do you mind if i ask you where you got the Attolinis? i find them every now and then, but are difficult to get besides Shop the Finest, which has limited stock, and full retail at a place like Vacca
