    Really liked DC talk until they broke up a while back. Michael Tate is the singer for the Newsboys and TobyMac is doing just fine as well. Not sure where the other member is at though. My parents went to college with them, so I listen(ed) to their music sometimes.

    Found these New Holland & Sherry "Antique Silver" Plated Celtic Cross buttons in the pocket of a jacket today.

    These are sold new on various sites for $20 per button.

    I usually say that "some people say" because some people say. There's no way to tell, AFAIK, which are and which aren't. I have one that I'm stock certain is, and it has Grilux (which, btw, is just the Barbera corporate tag). But I'm basing that on the crap ton of handwork and super human drape and lapel roll despite being so thin it might as well be made out of gauze. (I'd put on weight just to be able to wear that jacket again) :/

    Appreciate it, this suit has aome hand stiched shoulders that i dont usually see. Is there usually more indicators on who made it? Are there attolini tags / caraceni tags?

    Edit: looks like a whole bunch of people make lb, partenopea, st andrews

    This got the blood pumping. Arnys sizing is wild, this fits better than the Sz 40 veste forestiere.

    (I think) I remember Spoo finding Polo alligator belts just labeled as leather....are you saying the one I posted was just a cow stamped to look like some rougher beast? (Total belt noob, sorry).

    True story: I actually walked out of a Goodwill last week because they played Imagine Dragons, followed by that Andy Grammer song that sounds kinda like Cotton Eyed Joe, followed by that 'Best Day of My Life' song. The music was insanely loud and I just couldn't handle it.
