    Thanks, bro. My shearling game is weak. I mean it's vintage Macy's. The fur feels pretty smooth. I wasn't sure because the texture was a bit too consistent.

    Ugh!

    One of my metal charles tyrwhitt collar tags came out in the wash, got lodged in the machine and acted as a knife that cut two of my shirts. Easy come, easy go I suppose.
    I can only laugh when I think how heart broken I would have been if I paid retail for them.

    Wait.... you.... machine wash your dress shirts?

    I can see if they're like J.crews or etc, but you don't machine wash like Zegna / Brioni / etc do you?

    I finally found Shell Cordovan. Brooks Brothers Penny Loafers, #8 black 06602, size 9.5D - Available. I think they need a little care from someone with the know-how, but don't need to be re-soled.

    Hey guys, have a question for y'all.

    A very high end men's retailer has a sweater I want listed at $0 on their website. When I check out with the sweater, it's still $0.

    Anybody have experience with this?

    My mom makes miniature quilts - has for a couple decades now. All hand-made, usually with vintage material, hand-quilted etc. She used to teach and write books but has been out of that game for a while. Maybe I'll see if she wants to hock some on eBay.


    I found an empty tube of Chapstik in the dryer tonight...and all my clothes have smears on them that appear permanent. Hoodies and t-shirts etc, so not the end of the world, but I feels yr pain.


    @capnwes is your man.


    Hah! I'm pretty sure it's got like a half-dozen staple navy BB blazers with brass buttons and Loro fabric, because I know I have a bunch and they're not in with my other stuff. Blazers, some suits, some outerwear, some Ferrari jackets - basically stuff I know I have but ain't seen it in a while.


    Yes. Site may honor it, probably won't, but you gotta check out to find out.
