    Re: @oreagan I wouldn't have passed on everything. I would have kopped the Florsheim Double Monks and the lambswool sweater. But, the orphans (unless they are spectacular and bring real money - think Kiton and only a few others) aren't worth it.

    Thanks, Barrel. Luckily I only paid $4 for them. So, I'm not out much. I really appreciate the research!



    Great haul! That Sport Coat is fantastic! I don't know anything about David Chu, but it looks great!

    Any idea if this is legit? Quality is there but I got a weird vibe about it... Was donated with an EZ though.

    It was great reading everyone's story about their names! Some made me laugh out loud!

    And lots of people have four names! I have four names and so does my son (first name, two middle names, and last name). I don't ever use both of mine not even initials. My son has two middle names because of a compromise. I wanted his middle name to be Atticus. I'm a big fan of To Kill a Mockingbird. But, my wife wouldn't go for just Atticus, so he got two middle names.

    Uhh...if you haven't read Go Set a Watchman yet, you probably don't want to. You'll want to legally change your son's name.

    I have a couple DH ties I bought at the boutique back in my Hedi worshipping days, and the thing that looks the most off, is what those tags are attached too. I'd say legit, just never thought I'd see a tie over 3 inches come from that Design house.

    Just found the photo in my luggage (so yeah, it's a pic of a pic lol [​IMG]) :

    [​IMG]

    Married my best buddy 2 weeks ago. Face still fucking burnt by the Portuguese sun.
    Canali 1934 suit from @Sam Edge , Matinique shirt thrifted (sadly not sartorialy approved, whatever), thrifted EZ tie and random PS (had to wear something in pink, the wedding "theme").

    Fun fact : 2 days before my buddy married his beautiful wife, we tag teamed an inflatable doll together. [​IMG]

    I got visibly snaked by another flipper today for the first time!! I feel so used. Found a couple of skeets as I was digging around lunchtime, left them in place as my hands were full with the intention of grabbing after I got a cart. Came back, shirts are gone.

    Now, the crowd there at the time was /not/ a crew that I suspected of flipping, but I saw a guy after a bit with about 25 shirts in his basket... INCLUDIN MAH SKEETZ. Left with a sole Polo madras and called it a day.

    so many times i'd hit the racks and some guy would be like "those are mine"

    i usually leave em, but not w/o chirping them and telling em if those were indeed theirs, they'd be in their cart, like mine are my cart.
