    That is a complex meme. Your love for math is not imaginary.

    It’s been along time coming right here. I found the down filled version of this vest last year and a roach crawled out. After countless napkins and cough drop wrappers I finally got a little walkin around money

    Today was a good contrast to my recent posts and a good example of "You don't always find grails all the time". I started out early and hit 5 stores, deep scanning and taking time at each.

    Brought home 1 item for $6.99:

    Not mad tho.

    RL Summer 2018 Floral Print. Mint condition, wonderfully detailed printing and nice hefty cotton construction. Really just a nicely made, thoughtfully designed shirt.

    Never heard of David lance but a bespoke handmade navy chalk stripe flannel SB peak 3 piece for $10 seems like an easy bet

    I've found that exact suede tweed loafer in an æ by Allen Edmonds model, though I believe it was only a prototype (I'll try and dig my picture, it's somewhere here on SF). If I'm not mistaken, it's from around a bit after AE sold Rancourt back to the Rancourt family in 2009, but not by much (maybe 2012-2013). The æ line was all made in the Dominican republic, but the Rancourt factory still made all of Allen Edmonds MiUSA handsewns. So from the COO, I would guess they were made by Rancourt. The "prototype" one I found could have been while AE still was deciding what to do with the æ line.

    EDIT: Hmmm, well not the EXACT same loafer, but close.

    Might have gone too far today when I suggested to the SA that the denim skirt I found in the menswear should probably be in the women's section. She muttered something about "When you've finished rearranging the store". I work there, and I just find myself straightening things up, rehanging clothes and so on, even when I'm not on duty. Sounds like I need to stop that.
