Blast these gorilla arms mine
Yeah, it would be great on me, but my shoulders are 20", everything else is perfect. Moving my arms is not something I'm willing to sacrifice.
Can't line dry in winter. I thrift under strict limitations and monitoring dude!
At the very worst, someone here will be happy.
Their web site lists MENS shirt sizes from 2-6...I've seen a conversion chart, and a 6 IIRC is about a 48US, this was an XL shirt.
The Omega bespoke couture brand is:
Antonio Valente is a Toronto-based menswear company that specializes in designing and manufacturing high-quality trousers and (formal, dress and sport) shirts. Antonio Valente is a boutique business that identifies and addresses the professional and recreational needs of the modern man's lifestyle.
In 2002, as more and more brands were moving production jobs offshore, Antonio saw an opening in the North American menswear market for a truly innovative, high-quality and homegrown collection. That year in Toronto, Antonio started a shirt and trouser company under the label Omega Bespoke Couture. As Antonio's designs evolved so did the business. In 2009, the company's new direction was branded with the launch of Antonio Valente, the company's signature label.
As long as you didn't tear open the armpit, it should be fairly simple to reattach a couple of inches of lining.
Thanks, foodguy. Right in my own backyard too.
I don't recommend opening it up, but the lining was detached for a couple of inches at the bottom of my coat when I stopped by my tailor's shop once last winter to pick up something unrelated. He noticed it and insisted on fixing it before it got worse. Took him maybe a minute. (That probably translates to an hour for me!)
IIRC, they were in the beverly center.
Ah, good to know, thanks. Ugh...Ted Baker does the same thing. I hate that stuff.
I found these two really nice blue pokadot ties, lanvin and charvet but the dude who donated it must have had an affinity with spilling coffee on his ties...
Was he looking at this thread?
Is there a way to get the stains out of the tie? It's silk...
Stopped at GW on the way home, Thurs. dollar day. Heading over to the men's shirt section and saw a very ugly women in a red dress, with blonde hair and bright red lipstick...started looking through the shirts, looked up and two rows over, there she was again, only this time I noticed the glasses, lipstick was smudged and the blond hair was a wig. It was guy in drag!
I've actually seen that a few times. Today I noticed something bulky in a pocket so I looked in, there was a paper and 4 condoms probably from the early 90's. I picked out the paper, obviously, because I was curious and it was a list of Women's names...
