    @Jompso what inspired your name, not taking shots I've always been amused with the names ppl choose but i don't think you ever told us. I figured since you're around you could let us know. My name is a combination of a favorite character of mine TJ= The Joker (yes from the Batman series), Gent is an ode to the first site i found when I was getting an intense interest in menswear (theutbangentdotcom.) 87 is a number that pops up around me much more frequently than I could go into, plus...... So what about yours? (If you already explained I might have missed it)

    I may have to go check out those windowpanes at lunch today, but I think that guy who donates that stuff is a bit shorter than me. The one Isaia suit I picked up would have fit wonderfully if I had been about 3 inches shorter.

    Have you seen that killer Burberry grey wool toggle? teh sechs

    My name is from the real name of one of my favorite actors, Maurice Micklewhite. Do you know who? Anybody

    Dammit! This thread needs a feel good injection. and it's right here:

    When i asked last week if anybody could help my friend have some nice clothes to visit his daughter in hospital during her stay,
    Members of the thread stood up and said "I wanna help".



    A few days ago i was able to give him a box with a collection of sports coats like Battistoni, Canali,DKNY Cashmere and others.- Basically a decent haul's worth of swag. with another box getting ready for when he needs to drive to the hospital. to really surprise him. [​IMG]
    without knowing it, you guys have given a random Dude the chance to clean up nice when it matters more than ever.

    So thread members?

    Big shouts out to @vexco for sending me an absolutely perfect pair of Robert Geller Pants. :slayer: Also shouts out to @1ofTheCoolKids for somehow convincing him to send those to me for no reason! Stand-up guys right here. Good things will be headed his way shortly.

    Did anyone watch the debate last night? I'm only partially referring to the one that took place across town. I noticed many parallels with the thread action. I won't say who is who. [​IMG]





    @SpooPoker , you'll have a PM incoming soon... I'm still trying to wake my ass up.
