    HUGE shoutout to @Ds13 for my SS package! The Norse Projects and J. Crew chinos fit perfectly, even down to the inseam length! :slayer: The Bijan tie is erotic, the RA shirt crazy cool. And a whole smorgasbord of beers I've never tried--may just start my day tomorrow with that coffee bender... Thanks dude! :cheers:

    This has been brought up before, but DC Signature is super nice for dept store brand, and some of the highest end DC suits and ties are made by Isaia with great fabrics.

    I know this is overdue, however I have been running around like crazy this last week trying to prep for the holidays

    Got my SS from @aging in rhythm at the end of last week, and I was blown away; better post coming soon. Just trying to finish cleaning x.x Went out after work tonight to try to find something last minute for DIrty Santa at work, and wound up just buying myself a Billy Reid Polo from the rack :/ Gunna wrap some french crystal wine glasses I have laying around.

    There's some Robert Talbott BoC Extra Long that would fit the bill too.

    Did whoever makes Polo's Benchmade in Italy shoes ever use shell cordovan? Looking at some PTB's and they look suspiciously like shell, but i've only seen benchmade in england shell shoes from Polo

    Can you do everyone a favor and either spoiler the large pictures or choose medium to post? I am sitting in a hotel room and just spent 3 minutes watching your pictures load.
    Because your pictures are large to begin with they take up the entire page when you chose large. Also, a single main pic of an item is great then you can spoiler the rest. I really don't need to see 5 pictures of a Giorgio Armani jacket or 3 pictures of a Polo shirt. I have literally seen 50,000 Polo shirts, so unless it is cashmere or some awesome pattern, 1 picture tells the whole story.

    I actually have no idea why your pictures display so large, I copied one of yours and it came out ½ the size your post had it.
