    That photo was from the WAYWRN contest where you "DTO" another member.. or copy their style completely. acecow chose Mr.K to DTO (this outfit) and to finish the touch completely, photoshopped himself on Mr.K's traditional background with those 2 pictures of his wife.

    hmmm, 80% of my wardrobe is off of here, either trades or BS.

    In no particular order:
    Borrelli Cashmere SC-so in expensive, I wear it at least 1 time a week
    Luciano Barbera/Attolini blue blazer (whosurdadi) for like $100.00, its bad ass
    Sartorio Glen Plaid suit-From Shonuff...shocker-it was a fantastic deal on an Attolini made suit
    PZ Sartoriale Suit-recent buy, crazy cheap, crazy awesome fit, amazingly well made
    Kiton basic white dress shirt-from Lance for $100.00
    Most of my trades have been mind bending.

    For a slim fit - close, but no cigar. Best purchase was a Phineas Cole wool DB overcoat - truly an epic overcoat. Worst purchase was a length of fabric that I later found out had a 350% markup - that wasn't a good feeling.

Seen here: [​IMG] Shoes: 3 pairs of Grenson Rose collection shoes: light brown, dark brown, suede chocolate. I especially like this one: [​IMG] Overall, I can say I was pretty lucky buying from the forum. Only about 15%-20% of the items I didn't like.
    Oops :p

    I bought two RL croc silver tipped belts on here. I wear them a lot. They are two of my favorites.

    A pair of black Santoni captoes, a pair of RM Williams, 2 Borrelli-shirts, Zegna cashmere navy blazer, Pal Zileri brown with blue plaid blazer is the items getting worn mostly. But I've never been disappointed with anything from B&S, always top notch!

    I think I spent more on the B&S this year than I did Ebay.
    In no specific order:
    Mabitex and earlier this year Incotex.
    Bead Bracelets from spoo, homerj, and florian gray.
    Pre Loved Ties from almost everybody.
    Homemade PS
    + A bunch more accessories.

    I also had more than dozen trades that went well + I got a few gifts from people I proxy for.


    Edit- I thought this thread was just for this year.
    In 2009 I bought a bunch of stuff that I ended up selling. Mostly shoes that didn't fit. I got such great deals that I was able to resell everything I bought for almost as much as I originally paid.

    so far, I'm happiest with a pair of winter weight bamford and sons. This has opened my eyes to the functionality of winter weight wool and the longevity of natural fibers. Thank you, to whoever sold me these wonderful pants.

    Oh, almost forgot. Love the tweed coat & drakes tie from Malford of London that I was linked to from B&S. And my wallet and messenger bag from Unlucky, whom I also found on B&S.

    B&S > eBay
