    I don't think anyone's ever successfully nailed down that particular comic sans tag though. It's been asked about repeatedly in the Label thread, and no one's every been able to definitively say it's Lardini. There's another one that's similar in size, but with a more typical font that a few people think is Mabro, but I'm not convinced on that one either. Quality isn't there for it to be Mabro. Not enough handwork.

    Well, I don't know about other bros but when I saw these at the store, I tightened up my sphincter and put on my best pocket face. [​IMG]

    No more noob moments for me. This was a mile stone for me! [​IMG]

    All are N/A
    Brooks Brothers 1818 Madison navy suit with small herringbone pattern, saxxon wool, 44R
    I'm pretty sure it's this model : http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Madison-Fit-Saxxon®-Wool-Herringbone-1818-Suit/555K,default,pd.html
    It seems it wasn't worn a lot (no wear sign on the pant's crotch area)

    Tom James sport coat. no size indication but it fits me well and I like the color & pattern a lot!
    The left breast had the owner name on a label stitched but it was removed when donating I assume. that's too bad because the name of the guy is still in the tag inside the pocket... Oh Well....

    Borrelli for Louis Boston. French cuffs. this + the 39 got me to think the sleeves were extra long when actually it fits me!

    I thought when picking the one on the left that L.ittle.r would be a clothing store in Seattle when it's apparently a Law Firm :paranoia:
    Oh well. I like the small horns on it.

    I understand the top level Tom James (I think it's this one) is either made by Oxxford or its at least made in the same factory as Oxxford. I wish I knew the exact connection. Either way, very handsome SC!

    Edit: HA! I just saw the part about the Littler tie. It's not just a law firm it's one of the biggest! A HUGE firm with over 1100 lawyers.

    They are the largest employment law firm in the WORLD! Guess which small law firm in Wichita Kansas with just ONE well dressed lawyer kicked the big firms ass a few months ago?

    Come on guess?

    I'll give you a hint. When he won, he did the Rick Astley Dance!

    You are also probably the only attorney in the world who would accept shell cordovan as a retainer. [​IMG]
