    Love that linen Brioni. I wish they would put up some modern fits, every Brioni my size fits like a tent, and every one sized down the arms are too short.

    I bet you get that A LOT.

    Good thing too, since it was utterly destroyed and needed a complete redo, you just saved yourself hundreds of dollars and hours of work :/

    Some mid-day meh, just to post some finds.
    Ethriftish, was an "unbranded" cashmere polo

    One of those W&G I found earlier. Strange details on both of them.

    Also found this the other day. I believe it's from the 30's and it's MINT! Kinda wish the back patch was still present.

    Just a heads up, since it didn't work for me. If these measurements fit anyone who's interested:

    23" chest, 24" sleeves, 31" BOC and 19.5" shoulders.

    I'll let it go for cost+ship. Thanks.

    The keep looks similar to the recent Versace keeps. Any other labels?

    Not Where but When
    Fail:

    a coupla weeks ago i was in GW and they have these "island" cases near the entry where they put the silver and sunglasses and stuff...

    in fact, there was a minty pair of B&L ray-bans with SIDE CUPS! so stoked, so i called the lady over to open 'er up and made a little small talk with an older lady also hovering at the case...

    me: "so what are you gonna look at?"
    her: "silver earrings"
    me: "nice!..."

    and then the employee comes over and like i gentleman i defer to the lady who was also waiting. she goes "yeah, i'dliketolookattheseearringsandalsoi'dliketoseethesesunglassesthankyou!"

    Fuck. guess i gotta check my chivalry at the door...

    @capnwes - I just your doppelganger working at a Target in Minneapolis. I wanted to walk up to him and say "Has anyone ever told you that you look just like the guy from The SEAM Store?"
