G, that is awesome -- and doesn't that sound more like a grail than some woolen Italian thing?
P.S. Sometime, you should drop more info on that one last hurrah ponytail experiment. Also rad.
That is super-cool, but it's kind of a bummer to hear they don't have some kind of high-powered lady-CEO -- maybe someone like Vanessa Williams in a turquoise business suit, idk.
Good run today. These were the pick of the litter. All unworn, deadstock. Sizes 32-38.
IF they are made from Crye Multicam, they are awesome. There is a niche of militaria collectors who love multicam, and I'm pretty sure they will spring for those if they're branded anywhere.
Kryptek is the new thing that's getting tossed around, and if you find anything in that pattern that's usually worth picking up as well.
@Koala-T , again, thanks for this BEAUTY of a Brioni. And Spoo, thanks for the nudge on the 4 in hand knot. Never go with anything else anymore.
sometimes i like a petit noeud.
I'm not even sure what knot I use. I think its four in hand, but I'm not sure. I first learned a half windsor and it wasn't the right shape and I added a wrap around. I think that's a four in hand?
Sounds like you might have went full windsor, maybe? Idk. But, 4 in hand, always now
Gitman NWT for the bay and a t shirt for me
I just had to watch a video and tie my tie the way I usually do. Apparently I do a half windsor.
I tried the four in hand and its a little awkward. Maybe I am using the wrong hand. I tried it 3 times. The four in hand does seem easier to get it to dimple. But, because I am pretty tall, I'm working with a narrower part of the tie, and it seems like the knot is too small for me.
I used to just do a 4-in-hand, but they always look uneven or lop-sided to me... Even with the highest quality, thickest ties.
These days, I've adopted the "Pratt" or "Shelby" knot. It's somewhat simple, and doesn't produce a huge knot like a Windsor. It's just the right size, and it's very symmetrical and uniform if you get it down just right.
Some sources online will say it's an "Uneven Knot", but I don't know where they get that from. There's an even amount of material on either side of the knot, thus making it pretty uniform in appearance. My problem with the 4-in-hand is that there's always 1 extra layer of material on 1 side, so that its crooked or uneven looking.
In the field and needing guidance. MAison Martin Margiela x H&M black zip ankle boots and BB Peal & Co. Desert boots, each priced at $30. Both in size 10, both good used condition. Flippable? Cop or no cop?
