    Quoting myself, perhaps I will rephrase the question to find an answer so that it does not get skimmed over while we try to digest all the other activity here.

    Aquascutum, found fine sport coat thrifting, handmade, canvassed, its the good stuff. No size or material tags, nothing like that. You guys know if Aquascutum did Bespoke or get pieces made by the Row? This piece is minted like it was made by one of the high end brands / tailors (the hand and garment shape reminds me of older Ralph Lauren Purple Label made in England).



    Nice, I have also started to notice on your pics you got fine pair(s) of Ray Ban's. What do you do on a cloudy day though :laugh:?

    This guy gets it. Doesn't mind rocking cursed names and knock off products as long as they look good. Do the proceeds of your style go to charity?

    To quote Potemkin, it goes to the "sketchy" one. Where is the Jack Russell?

    Dig has it down how to get most bang for the $$$. I like how he mentioned he'll buy a cheaper item to try it out before upgrading.

    I was wondering about the dog too.

    Does anyone like big heavy USA-made Pendleton wool trousers? Got a pair that measures 34x31, 3" hemmed, small hole that would be covered by the belt buckle. Perhaps like a pinhole on the rear, but I couldn't even tell for sure if it was a hole. If this speaks to you, let me know, otherwise it goes back because I realized too late that they would no way in Hell fit me. Will PM pix if wanted.

    A dog? I thought DigMeNow (whose name I pronounce as Dig'meow) was a cat person. =^.^=

    Compared to our Sheppard / Wolf Mix a Jack Russell is a cat.

    Quick question: I saw someone here mention Missoni the other day, but I thought Target sold their stuff. Are they crap or not...and if some is crap, how do you distinguish? It felt ok/not like utter crap. Here's the Missoni SC, and a Pringle sweater I found recently.

    Sewn-on buttonholes, which leads me to believe it's crap.

    Any chance you are thinking of Mossimo?

    Back in the 90s, Mossimo sold mid-high end denim, et al. Now they are a Target brand.

    My Marshalls had new Brioni and Kiton shirts for $99. Not a stellar price, but about the lowest I have seen. As for thrifting......I can't remember. A few bags of something not so noteworthy...

    That isn't crap, I am not sure about the rest of their stuff because I have limited experience handling it. I mentioned Missoni, it was a dress shirt also Made in Italy. Your right, Missoni created a line for Target, however it is considered high end fashion. Their stuff can be found in Neiman's, Nordstrom's, Saks, etc. and is known for the crazy color styles and patterns. They also make home products and I think they have a hotel?

    Check this out: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mens-VTG-Mi...228769?pt=US_CSA_MC_Vests&hash=item19cdc20c21

    I am not sure how the SC's sell though, sorry.
