    Don't normally pick up Scotch & Soda, but maybe I should. I have yet to leave anything with happy face gauntlet snaps.

    Initially thought this was a paint stain, but looks to be a pattern woven into the collar, which is the part that might show. Camo?

    That feel when you cop an '03 MM4 Maison Martin Margiela staple black cashmere cardigan for your wife and she doesn't get it (my wife, for all of her wonderful qualities, does not /love/ clothes the way that I do.) I /love/ Margiela and this was a sweet find.[/quoted gave my wife a full length Malo 100% cashmere knitted overcoat I thrifted last year, she still prefers the free people sweaters I find for her ;)

    Damn man, I haven't shaved in like three months and biked there smelling liked hungover anchovies. I looked like a dirtbag (which I am) but got excellent service. At the same time, the store was dead, the street was dead. I think oak street lives on gigantic baller buys[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I am completely unfamiliar with this brand. 100% linen. Is there a market for such a thing?

    Pulled a pair of shoes that has an odd odor - the only way I can think of to describe it is that it smells like my grandma's basement. Old, stale, maybe kind of a mothballish smell, but it's noticeable and I want to get rid of it. Any ideas?

    Not sure, never done it with shoes, but I've done it with sweaters. Bag with coffee and then a bag with the sweater left open in there. Seems to work pretty well

    Zero Odor works remarkably well as well.
