    He got dat Vanilla Ice hair do. :)

    Knows textures of clothes too. Already trained him to feel the clothes on the rack before looking at them.
    His closet has some epic swag. -flight Jackets, canvas, Denims.Camo's, Wool, Angora,tweed. Not much as far as brands. But he gets by. He got Reebok Classics, Jordan 12's,jordan 6's? Cortez's, timb style boots. .

    Don't worry unky Spoo. I be training him right.

    Another one from our favorite online lady. Ralph Lauren "polo coat" listed under women's.

    Lucky to snag the long sleeve version rather than the very short lived, and unsuccessful, short sleeve version.

    My wife and I went to Dangerfield's once years ago and had a blast. It was Superbowl Sunday, so relatively dead inside. Spent nothing on the tickets and probably $50 on the drinks. Would do it again.



    Double-check that Bergdorf cashmere, good chance it was made by Cucinelli!

    With the recent Boss, if you look at the content/material tag I'm pretty sure the Suits are labeled with two style names (I.e. "James4/Sharp") while the standalone jackets have just one style name (I.e. "James4")

    Edit: this is one i sold a few months ago. style name is "The Keys9". No second style name.

    Ahh...I suspect it may be an orphan jacket then, as I kind of remember seeing two names on the tag, if I remember correctly. I'll check again when I have a chance. I keep thinking it said something like R..../Wayburn, or something? I remember R and W.

    Thanks for the info "leisurewear".

    The others are cool and all, but these take the biscuit; I want Hermes sneakers so bad.

    Agreed. I'd take those Hermes sneakers above everything else in that post.

    I'd trade my collection of 20+ Nike and other branded sneakers for one pair of Hermes, without hesitation.

    On the idea mentioned earlier about most people having no idea vintage tommy/polo is a thing ...

    Was at the post office last night and there was some 75 year old woman wearing this jacket. Looked fucking sweet in person, color looked as bright at they would have in 92. Wish there was a way to ask someone if you can buy their clothes without sounding like some kind of predator.
