    I've heard of it, but never seen first hand. Seems like an easy way to make $ without knowing shit about books/cds.

    quick hit today. @Koala-T did you already clean Austin out this afternoon? I know you skip shirts, and that's all there was.
    Someone here mentioned this J. Crew label, had never seen it, now I've found 2 this week. This one new.

    Didn't mean to post the price, but weird thing. This store is always 12.99 for shirts, except Bonobos, consistently 9.99

    Spoo gets the choice meat, even on sloppy seconds.

    ---

    Edit, I vote Loake. Sorry, Spoo. I think Loake are the same quality without the overblown (in the US) hype. US retail pricing on Loake is high, but secondhand market is much more reasonable. Check that other site.

    Had a decent day. Largely fodder, but given the shit I've been finding lately, I'm pretty pleased.

    re the cucinelli chukkas, i had a chance to look at/try on a couple pairs of cucis a few weeks ago... i wasn't impressed with the build quality, very light and the leather actually seemed sort of cheap to me. afaik they actually make their own shoes in whatever medieval Italian town that is, so i'd expect to feel the same about all of em. i think i'd try the Loake before the cuci. .02.

    @SpooPoker

    is that Belvest a thing? i passed on a pretty nice db navy last week with a very similar label and i thought it would be good for personal use at least. but when i looked it up i saw no love, maybe my research sucks? i dunno, i thought it was nice tho.
