    So this gorgeous piece is about 42x42 and was thrifted, however not by me...All the text on the tag looks right except it has the brand on it....Is this bitch a Kate Upton Titty or Tuesday lunchtime dancer at Spearmint Rhino titty? @SpooPoker ?

    First, nice Dunhill pick up, that's Caruso I believe. Second, Southwick for yourself or no?

    thanks for the knowledge, good info!

    as for the southwick, unfortunately, they are too big for me. i'm a rather small dude, so no surprise there. fyi, they are not in perfect condition. a couple of them have some wear and some issues with the inside lining near the armpits. i can provide pics and measurements via pm if you're interested.

    Naw on the contrary, with Southwick, grab it if you really like it and it fits you well and intend on keeping it for yourself. Do not grab it with intentions of reselling them, zero market....just fyi for the future.

    Doze Boots. I must know what size those are.


    Also... are those Nova Check Pajamas? The construction looks like a Pajama top.

    You could have saved $400 bucks and bought a NWT's navy blue Kiton 100% Vicuna overcoat on eBay

    EDIT: Sorry Cash Vicuna blend

    Sold a Southwick for $74 a couple weeks ago. I always buy Southwick as long as it's an actual sport coat. I'd probably pass on a solid gray suit jacket orphan.

    Note to self: never buy a tie from Jompso.

    @fueco any chance to proxy Spoo hanger?

    @jompso not too sure about Ferragamo scarf. 42" is an odd side and I've never seen a silk that isn't signed within the scarf itself.

    A seven fold is better than a fleshlight.
