    So much craziness on here today! That espresso maker and that Polo jacket! Wow!



    That green HBT jacket? It's actually looks like it's inspired by a WWII Herringbone Twill utility jacket. Fabric, donut buttons, the single chest pocket, etc.

    That's definitely it. I was leaning more military when I saw the green herringbone. Thanks Nat!

    Glad to help! That's an awesome piece. I actually think the cuff buttons the same way too. Really cool.

    I would like to know what other grails Spoo lusts after. I mean about 1/4 of the stuff posted every week by everyone would be grail for me. What else can considered Grail for someone like Spoo?

    I've never found Chanel, or Tom Ford, or a LV Trunk, . . .

    I think it's awesome that having had so much success in this business that there are still somethings that can get him so excited. For me, I think the ultimate Grail would be thrifting a Rolex. I don't mean buying one at an estate for $500 and selling it for $5000 (although that would be incredible). I mean actually thrifting a Rolex. Probably never happen since they Rolex is so recognizable. But, I can hope!

    true vintage 92/93 RL was at the very top of the list.

    other things that I haven't found but want to will :

    Vicuna
    Kiton tailored pieces (found at estate and charity sales, but not thrift, thats what i want)
    Rolex
    18k buttons so i can stop saying i only found 14K buttons
    Versace silk patterned vintage shirt
    Chanel tweed jacket

    and of course, the thing that I'm looking for the most :

    the one I don't know about yet.
