    Awesome stuff! Congratulations, @PLaydice ! Yes, now you have license to hold onto all of your toys! It wasn't that long ago that I sold all of my Lo toddler boys clothing from the late 80's and early 90's that I had stockpiled. I accumulated lots of shit while working for Sir Ralph. [​IMG]

    Question for you guys: I picked up a pair of raw selvedge Naked & Famous Weird Guys yesterday. They needed a washing so I threw them in our machine and set it to gentle cycle. I don't do this with my denim but mine doesn't get like these were. Apparently I neglected to turn off the spin cycle and they wound up with light streaks down the legs. Think it makes sense to overdye them? They're not terrible as-is, but the streaks are noticeable. I've seen examples in other threads of people doing overdyes themselves and they can look really good. Best I can tell, it's a $15/hour or two investment.

    Great finds!
    EZ cloth, not made by EZ. You'll see this a lot. Same goes for the LP label, they're only using fabric made by EZ/LP in the item.

    Is this A) Legit B) Something worth the $18 I paid? No branding other than the liner and buttons, but I assume there was something on the missing zip-in liner?
    Annnnnd:

    Avail.

    If those have been sitting under my nose the whole time ...

    But I do have an anti-Labels stance, so there's that.

    @GMMcL those three staple zegna ties are amazing.

    If I was still working in a place where I needed ties, you wouldn't have them anymore.

    Congrats @PLaydice !

    A) Yes
    B) Not sure if serious.

    Schott A2 for under 20$? Always.

    Yes there's a quilted zip liner likely with a schott tag as well.
