    cordovan is a color. the color of rich, rich burgundy.

    split means that it's not full grain, they literally plane sheets of leather off of a super thick hunk of hide (sort of similar to plywood) and then surface it. why didn't you show the face of the leather you're asking about?

    15 hr day today, 10 more tomorrow; if I did my math correctly, and things keep going the way they are, I should have enough to pay for fixing my car with my first paycheck.

    "Made in Japan" it says. Totally legit. "Nippon Made" actually.

    Just a heads up and a question:

    Any of you ps4 guys downloaded the Star Wars Battlefront open beta? It's pretty fun. 40 man multiplayer on Hoth is Kreygasm.

    The ties are all for a friend who just likes designer stuff and doesn't care about quality much. Also, for $6 a suit, I've been doing alright selling the Lauren stuff on eBay for around $50 and netting a reasonable profit for not too much work. Probably from people who just like Lauren, but they never seem to sit too long before I sell them on eBay. I will not dispute that most of these are not quality garments, but they do sell and that's what I'm mostly interested in when flipping items.

    Thanks, @everyone, for the thoughtful condolences via post, PM and text. It means so much to me to have you all "close by" at a time like this, when I live so far from my friends and family.

    We are ok. We are trying to stay as busy as possible. That strategy worked about 20% of the time yesterday, but today I'm shooting for 21%.


    Did go out yesterday, all day, because Holly convinced me it was better than sitting home by myself. I hit 10 stores, well, I went to 10 stores....not sure I really HIT any of them. I mostly just wandered around in a daze, but did bring home a few things to make the trip worth it.

    Most surprisingly....I finished my rig for the wedding next weekend.

    When I took off my shoes after I snapped the fit pic the other day, they literally fell apart in my hand (they were just cheapo poly rentals with rubber soles).

    Saw a single pair of patents yesterday, and damn if they weren't in my exact size. Also found a bow tie, just in case I am not receiving one as a gift from my sister.

    More on the rest.... to follow.

    @barrelntrigger, only tag is this one:
    [​IMG]

    Size 54 Euro, I guess.

    Took a couple other pics last night. I'm going to live with it for a while and see if it works as an overshirt. It's a little big on me (I'm a 38). If anyone's interested, feel free to hit me up via PM. (For future reference, how do I spoiler on my phone?)
