    Who would make up a fake name like that... my fake name is usually Richard [​IMG]
    Did you have a Cobra (I think that's 1st pic)? Use to do some design work on Mustangs (05+ and have a soft spot in my heart for them) [​IMG]

    Ted Baker at $150.....eh/no...at $50...yes (they make a few different quality suits and some are pretty crappy and also ugly)

    A little bragging myself now from last weekend

    J Press Golden Brown 3 Roll 2 Tweed Jacket - 40R (for sale but would MUCH rather trade for something similar in my size!)
    I didn't even know you could get a fully canvassed tweed!!!

    it is a cobra in the first pic (didnt think anyone would notice haha), mine was a GT though. I had all of these performance parts that were sitting in my basement waiting to be put on in spring, but there goes that...

    Yea I thought he was more of a "38S" which is why I didnt tell him 1st as I own him something back in a trade. Hopefully it works for him; really nice guy!

    Also picked this up... perfect for summer! Anyone know whats up with the foreign tag?

    I was interested, but that's really more of a 38R

    Hmmm, weird. All of the ones I picked up in my haul yesterday were US or Canadian made with union tags. Didn't see any foreign care tags like that. Everything else seems right on though, so it might be nothing. I don't think there's a prevalence of fake Paul Stuart's floating around or anything if that's your concern (someone else can correct this if I'm wrong).

    [​IMG] yea not really a "fake" concern, nice quality jacket, but was just wondering. Do you know how to tell the age of the Paul Stuarts based on the inner "color" (this one is brown, PS Tag?

    No clue man. Might want to ask Nataku since he just picked up a bunch of super recent ones (I'd look at the one I got from him but it's at the cleaners), so he might know.

    Overheard at the thrift store the other night: conversation of two women of indeterminate age, both looked like 30 miles of bad road. They were in separate parts of the store when one comes up to the other shopping near me.

    Woman 1: "Omigod, Jim just called and said the cops were at our house."
    Woman 2: "What for?"
    Woman 1: "They wanted to know if we had a son named (unintelligible). They said he was being teased by some other kids and he took a gun and went over and said he was going to kill them."
    Woman 2: "OK, we should go then."
    Woman 1: "Well, the cops already left"
    Woman 2: "Oh, so we don't have to go right now?
    Woman 1: "Nah"

    They then proceeded to shop for another half hour, buying crappy baskets and stuff. They were still there when I left. :facepalm:

    I'm not sure that the color of the tags has really changed - they've been using the brown tag for some time now. You might be better off going by the the shops listed on the tag. That one might be pretty old because I think newer tags say New York-Chicago-Tokyo.

    With all the talk of "Pendleton" made in USA garments, saw this yesterday, but left behind:

    Went at lunch.

    Found a pair of AE Arlington burgundy kilted tassel loafers, size 10.5C that seem to fit. There's one spot where the insole sticks up at the turn where the arch is... Any idea how to stick that down?

    Also picked up:
    Brooks Brothers merino wool green with tan argyle pattern sweater vest, size M

    3x Brooks Brothers polos, salmon, light green, and salmon with green & white stripes

    NWOT J Crew navy cords, 33x32 or so

    The polos and cords might be available depending on fit and how much I like them when I get home
