    No other tags, but there is some faint military-esque writing on the liner that i can't make out. It's insanely heavy and the side pockets are lined with light brown corduroy

    Speaking of fruiting the trees, turns out I have a pear tree on my property...been here 3 years and it's never done anything but drop leaves each autumn, until now.

    They're kinda funny looking; I shall call them Buscemi pears.

    1930s-50s USN Peacoat. I can't remember off the top of my head, but I think that's from just prior to WWII. If in good condition and no moth holes, and decently priced (sub $20-25), I would cop.

    Do not need, and yet.... WAAAAAANT.

    That's the good stuff, sub 20 is right, but if you're patient and that's in great shape, would be a good PU even over that.

    Finally liberated a cashmere Cucinelli sport coat from the local Saks Off Fifth that's been there too long. No photo yet but this is in competition for my best Saks receipt:

    Probably keeping if I can move all the other stuff I have backlogged.

    well it's not as epic as last weekend, but

    [​IMG]
    that's 4 Zegna suits and 1 orphan. most are staple-y Wool/Cashmere and the one is an epic tweed suit that i hope fits. in the bag in the background is a bunch of borrelli, charvet, and zegna shirts.

    unfortunately i don't have the "stamina" of some folks around here, so once i saw Wilkes Bashford for the 2nd time i blew my wad. no remorse whatsoever lol. will be heading back out tomorrow.
