    Re french cuffs: in my opinion, you only want them in white (and maybe light blue), and only when you are wearing a tux, or a charcoal/navy suit. Patterned FC shirts are useless, unless you are British.

    What's wrong with frenchies? I personally quite enjoy them, though I do have quite a number of wonderful cufflinks.

    Those buttons are mild steel with leatherette inserts in them that have rusted. The detailing on these is just amazing, and the denim itself has more character than any I've ever handled.

    @Bahljs is this a pair I'm looking for? Appears to be some version of the Charles Barkley's but can't find any information on the year. (Size 13)

    Salvatore Ferragamo Brogue Cap Toes 10.5 D

    Allen Edmonds Park Aves 9 E

    Finally, headed to the ties for a quick check and came across classic tie after classic tie. J Press Ancient Madders, Ben Silvers, Brooks Brothers all in classic colorways and patterns. Had to pass on the majority as there was damage on a good portion but these are darn near perfect:

    BB, Ben Silver x2, Paul Stuart England, J Press Burlington Knot

    Had a random thought when I was sifting through that this could be the time where I would find my first Hermes and sure enough...

    POP! Pretty confident it's legit but I'd appreciate if anyone had any deeper insights. All in all a great day yesterday!

    Quote: Depending on year, this could be what you're looking for. Year should be on size tag and look like xx-xx-xx, usually at the bottom of size tag. Barkley does have a following.
