Poor little guy... I hope that he makes a speedy recovery. Pugs are awesome!
Anyone want a small or large from Bills Khakis while I'm here?
I know right? Pants always seem like a pain in the ass, but lately I've been going pretty smooth with em. I'm using just a piece of big white paper on the floor with 3 softboxes setup around it, and my pants photos are coming out pretty professional looking:
They actually go pretty fast if they're flawless. I think the measuring actually takes longer than photographing.

Some of these I already had but felt compelled to pick up anyway.

Just a few random ties lately, the last sputterings of a tapped-out city. Come, listen. Press your ear to the concrete. Is this legit?, it seems to ask with its dying breath.
DO NOT DISAPPOINT MY DYING CITY!
*NWT Oxxford Crest not included.
I thought only the G-Two's were made in India, and the rest still made in the UK... Has that changed?
The pairs I've seen that have the red insole with the raised G stamp, like the loafers posted, have all been manufactured in India. I'm not familiar with the different collections, though, so if those are G-Twos, then that answers that.
Can anyone tell a date/vintage for this?
I have always fucking hated Robert Guillaume. His greatest role was playing Benson on that old sit com. Well, since I had the same last name, I had to endure years of people telling me, "You don't look like him."
Couple of weeks ago I found a Cucinelli puffer vest at an outlet, final sale at 87% off retail. I looked the thing over very carefully, figuring that it must be damaged, and somehow didn't see that it was missing 2 buttons (the kind that snap). I emailed Cucinelli and they are shipping another set directly from Italy at no cost to me - talk about taking care of customers
The way my thrifting goes... Buy a hoodie online, then find another one in a thrift shop for a fraction of the price. Pop for me on a Snap-T Hoody...
Ok thanks for the tips. None were full suits just jackets, and the size was pretty large I think 48-50L so I passed not knowing if I could sell the items or not. For future reference since the sizes are pretty large would it be worth it to get them anyway??
I did however find a nice canalli tie that made it home with me...
Thanks for the info! Seems like the red insole is specific to the G-Two's so made in India I guess.
