    I could never buy anything from Yoox because of how that guy poses - it just ruins everything. I dunno how you can do it Buddy Love, but you should probably cut up your credit cards now and thank me later.

    Yeah. But at least you can always expect them to look better than in the picture. And thankfully they actually pretty much always do, I have had to return surprisingly few items. Regarding cutting my credit cards...you're absolutely right. I think I'm having a slight addiction. I mean, before I started to buy clothes I bought DVDs and now I have over 1000 of them but no time to watch them. I guess I'm collecting clothes know. I have a lot more clothes that I have ever time to wear. The only problem is that they are a way more expensive than DVDs, even when bought heavily discounted. [​IMG] The problem is (besides being a shopaholic) that I only use one credit card and it works as my bank card also. I should probably just plug off my inet-connection and start to enjoy upcoming spring weather. We all should.

    You certainly know what you like!

    I recently picked up Adidas Forest Hills vintage (not actually vintage) in cream/red, and a gray CYC zip sweatshirt from Rockn.

    That's some great stuff Justin...almost makes me wanna go back and get that TB polo.....*almost* ...BTW, post pics of your suit when you get it back!

    Picked up this Band of Outsiders 1950s style gingham shirt jac from ShopJake

    [​IMG]

    A few years ago I used to wear vintage shirt jacs almost exclusively so seeing this was a bit of cool sartorial nostalgia. But don't buy it from Barneys cuz they (over)charge $265 for this!!!

    $720 at Bottega Veneta. I think you can buy it online also at www.bottegaveneta.com Also comes in a squarish larger duffle bag and a messenger bag. If you look online check men's bags AND travel.

    You love gingham gs, nice pick up. I think it's totally your style.

    Barney's does overcharge, especially on BoO.

    I finally picked up a 2gb flash card for the nik so hopefully some pics will be going up this week.

    You know I will!!

    I'm going to wear it in a few weeks to an Anthony Goicolea opening at a Chelsea gallery for his new exhibit (perfect event, right?).

    I'm going to go back probably not this weekend; but, next and get either a pair of the black wing tips or an cashmere oatmeal vneck pull over with 3 white arm stripes. Part of me says get the shoes since so much of his cashmere can still be found end of season marked down...however, I then wouldn't be able to wear it for a few months after I bought it because it will be too hot in June for that.

    You should get the Thom Browne suit in black/white gingham that has a seersucker hand/texture. [​IMG]

    Damn that's nice. Are the shirts really that short IRL? Because I love the length.

    I'm hoping you get the wingtips so you can post some pics on here. I would love to see some detailed shots of what his shoes are like, the sole, last shape etc

    It's based on shirts that were popular in the 1950s-early 60s where they are meant to be worn untucked so they end at the waistline with buttoned tabs on the sides if you want to tighten the waist fit. Hence the name "shirtjac" as it's a shirt with a jacket like length

    saw it (I think at Bergdorf)..its pretty nice, but not a fan of seersucker-ish fabric

    Altho (speaking of Band of Outsiders), BoO has a jacket that is seersucker in appearance but it's heavy cotton that I liked a lot. Similar kind of fit as TB, but their sleeves are even skinnier and I've never seen a jacket where the wrist opening is as tight as BoO jackets

    As we said via email and discussed potential cobblers (but here it is for others to speculate) his shoes are British hand/bench (same thing? I don't follow footwear the closely) made; but, they won't tell you by whom.

    I will post a sole pic because when you walk on certain floors (mainly tile) they sort of "tap" as the back part corner of the heel that always wears first is actually partially steel that aligns with the leather.

    ah nice!! That's usually a bespoke feature, having built in metal heel/toe taps. I always add the plastic ones to my shoes since I am a heel grinder. Metal ones are righteous.

    I hear you on that, I even try to notice the way I walk so it doesn't seem like I'm digging into the pavement. I'm excitied now to post pictures of the soles once I get them because if there is a forum who can figure out the true maker of them it would be this one.
