41-42 chest, 34-36 waist. Size L/XL in shit like Beams/Beams+ if that tells you anything.
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
call them NWOT, tag was cut and tied back on.
2x NWT, tie lady loves me.
I need some opinions on this Loake Kempton's vs Brunello Cucinello Chukka
HAHAHAHA!! You really should have!
Yay to Loake's nay to Cuci
I vote Alden.
Some recent finds:
Tse wool knit blazer (XXL):
DvN polo shirt (M):
RLPL tan/light brown (not green) corduroy flat front pants (34, St Andrews?):
RLPL blue suede driving loafers (8.5):
RRL herringbone denim made in USA chore coat (XL)
Not really CM or SWD, but I thought it was a cool find:
Jockey Life 1978 deadstock paisley briefs:
My best finds (sadly the popover linen shirt with thick MOP buttons and contrasting collar by an obscure italian shirtmaker -Maria Santangelo- was busted ):
Fred Perry polo that has to passed the oxy treatment
Odd pair of zanella's cotton chinos with double pleats...
Etro Milano Big Polka dot
Trafalgar belt 36
BL sportcoat, nice.
Junhashimoto shirt, very cool japanese swag, S or XS, size 3 N/A
i knew i was in someones wake. those orphans have been there since i bought the other 44, no pants coming for sure. but you missed a couple absolute grail, 1970s original made in france 996 Courreges shields. hoping to beat my OP/MF horns with these. May not even sell, thats how rare these are. Fucking pop. Thank you, halloween section. the unstained ties pop zegna, belvest plaid, not orphans McGeorge cotton, Laing 100 ca$h, corneliani 100 ca$h PRL/corn cash wool flannel vintage M65. Mercedes official leather jacket
I wore mine today.
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.
Mephiso, AE, A. Testoni
Armani black label
HF suits x4 & HF SC x1
I believe the hype on alden. i am an alden fanboy. The quality of Loake is of no compare
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.
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.
