    Part of my outlet haul. Not pictured are 6 additional ISAIA shirts, 2 Cucinelli dress shirts (I paid $19.99 for one of them) and a Brioni shirt.

    Total haul was 13x ISAIA dress shirts, 2 meaty ISAIA cashmere sweaters, 1 Zegna dress shirt, 2 Cucinelli dress shirts, 1 Brioni dress shirt, plus about 13 ties, some of which are not pictured. Prices were tits.

    Best part about the haul (beside the fact that this weekend was a tax holiday for items under $100) - there was a half rack of ISAIA cashmere sweaters that had a stamp on the tag. I asked the salesperson what the stamp meant, and he said they will ring up between $20 and $59 each. I almost shit my pants, but calmly said "okay." After he walks away I grab every sweater on the rack. He comes back over a few minutes later and told me he had spoken with the manger again because they were trying to figure out how a $1,500 sweater was that cheap. Turns out they were priced incorrectly. I was bummed, but still stoked because I had an armful of other good deals. My wife finishes shopping and comes over and I tell her the sweater story. She ain't havin' it. She asks to speak with the manager and to make a long story short, they agree to sell me 2 of the sweaters for $59 each.

    Dem sweaters. One is a shawl hoodie, the other buttons at the neck, both 100% cashmere.

    Coolest tie I've found. Isaia, self tipped grenadine.

    Also appears to be a grenadine.

    LOL, no I'm good. At the moment, I'm cleaning a paint stain off of a Penfield down vest. If it wasn't a little too small, I'd be keeping it as well. Hopefully I can get all of the paint off it, then off to Ebay it goes.

    I believe that Serac is a Canadian company. I'm not familiar with the quality of their stuff, but I recall seeing some on the slopes when I went skiing in the Canadian Rockies a few years back.

    I've been caught up with a number of projects and once I got behind, I thought I would just catch up before I posted. Unfortunately, I've been 2,000+ posts behind for several weeks. It's been a blast reading though, some unbelievable finds. I haven't thumbed any posts as I thought that would confuse those that receive email notifications. I would have thumbed hundreds of posts over the past couple of months though!

    Nice to be noticed when I'm gone though, thanks @SpooPoker. Oh, and:

    "Jeder Topf findet seinen Deckel"

    In the meantime, we received a visit from this guy:

    Without exaggerating, approximately 90% of my knowledge of pregnant women comes exclusively from mid-'90s sitcoms and various comedies. Needless to say, this has been a learning experience for me thus far. As soon as I know the gender, expect desperate pleas of awesome clothing.



    Very true. Of course, we found out about the new addition to our family after I had made extensive plans to reroute plumbing/drains, tile, etc. I decided the prudent thing to do would be to scale back a bit and update it rather than do a total gut job.

    A few quick after-shots for those that care:

    Anyway, I'll do my best to catch up entirely and will hopefully get a few shots of finds posted in the next day or two!

    Styleforum thinks you're on mobile for some reason. Maybe clear cache/cookies and refresh?
