    Dude didn't get it in LA, he got it in Azusa, technically LA county, but I've never even been there and I've lived here my whole life. So it was not on my radar in anyway

    Not sure I agree with it being 80s fashion. I love a lot of their shit irregardless of resale. A lot of it is too loud, but it is like a streetwear, neon version of Etro to me in some ways. Loud prints and odd pretty modern cuts that kind of push the boundaries between wearable and runway. You find any Kenzo shit, lemme know

    Try Kenzo Homme when the line went from mid range garbage to luxury fashion. Old Kenzo has no market because the design and quality isn't there...Homme, you'll probably be able to give it away

    2 3x3's animal style, fries, Neapolitan shake. That's how you get ready to move more office shit and then put in work...death row last meal, feel like a new man...my right arm has started hurting and my heart isn't beating, but a new man for sure

    Focus on recent kenzo homme, big in the asian community. Its one of those in your face brands, like when you see the givenchy rottweiler, they have their own version and its $$$

    To use on education only.

    --

    Found a pair of minty Gustins yesterday. Tried them on and they were bang freaking perfect -- even the inseam, which never happens for me.

    Then I opened the box of a trade with a regular trade partner from France. I'd traded a couple of Kiton suits that were too big. The intent was to sell what I got back. But wouldn't you know, the Kiton in the box fits me like a glove right out of the box, and so do those Lobbs and G&Gs.

    Looks like I'll be cash poor for a while still.

    Just curious SPOO, how many trips does it take to haul 150 pieces of Anderson Shepherd in a Ferrari?

    And for those of you who will catch the reference. This is now my favorite new question:

    Do you need money if your wearing a Kiton suit and John Lobb shoes? I honestly don't think you do.

    Yes.

    I need the money I paid to buy them.

    Which was a lot.

    Cash flow and all that. Not rocket science.

    Don't pick a fight with me, too Jompso. For one thing, I'm not in the mood.
