    I spent money, here's what they gave me.

    Alan Paine Pure Cashmere Vest

    2x Aquascutum London wool sweaters, Scotland of Course.

    Exclusive Cashmere from Neiman Marcus, where? There
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    NWT's Brooks Brothers Shetland wool sweater...you know the rest.

    Probably one of the most boss fucking suits I've ever picked up. Ivory white DB suit from Fred Hayman of Beverly Hills...however made by Belvest of 100% Silk. This fucking thing feels like a giant Stefano Ricci tie, it's like a slip and slide, the silk is insane.

    Really nice mini houndstooth blue blazer by Dunhill...or for Dunhill, by Zegna...and it's crispy as fuck.

    One of my personal favorite brands and I never ever find them...well today I found my first suit and it feels as well as appears to be brand fucking new. Love Ravazzolo.

    Dope wool navy blue DB peak label Brioni blazer
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    A 70/30 wool silk blend from Wilkes and Bashford...
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    naw....Brioni
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some Selvage jeans I picked up.
    [​IMG]

    Oh hi.
    [​IMG]

    Even the inner crotch construction has a selvedge edge on both sides. I don't know who Mr. Ford contracted to construct these jeans but they are far and away the nicest made pair of denim I have seen this side of Japan.

    Probably the best piece. NWOT's navy blue 3/2 roll button Engineered Garments hacking blazer (this thing is fucking sick).

    That is all.

    no clue they handled those reigns too....Zileri makes great shit, I've always loved them, you just almost never come across it in LA. I've thrifted two Sartoriale pieces in the past year and that is all I've seen I think.

    Have never crossed paths with one unfortunately...and this years September issue was nearly 700 pages....that's a lot of silk.

    Edit: Last year was nearly 700...this year was well over 800... just wanted to be sure that everyone on here knows that I am actually aware of the page count of Vogues September issue...yea...even watched the documentary.....fml

    I feel like the summer doldrums hit later than usual here this year. September was almost a complete bust, then during the last week things started falling from the sky finally. All of this is N/A because we had a hail storm and I've got a deductible to pay (but at least I get a new roof)!
