    Normally wouldn't do this but my post got fucking massacred by that ridiculous conversation about the ethics of GW. I shouldn't have even brought it up. But can anyone take a look at this damn coat and see if they can help me ID it?

    I believe it to be on par with the HF Collection line. Fully canvassed, etc. etc.

    I saw this shirt tonight, now that I keep realizing we run similar circuits I want to know how many times we've been in the same room. They also had a Unis spring green peacoat fora little under $200 size 40 that I didn't dare try on for fear I'd convince myself to buy it today.

    Don't know about yellow being final clearance anymore. I've spotted some tags that have a red tag, then a yellow tag, then a red tag on top of that. Nothing SF worthy, though.

    Andro, I am really happy with a Missoni dress shirt I picked up a while back. Really good quality, thick buttons, held up really well. So, if it fits, I'm sure its good quality.

    +1 - Don't forget both were from Canada. If I had to read one more time about how he had Toronto on lockdown and nobody could keep up with his thrifting pace. Thia all screams of classic Frenchy.

    I don't think there's enough there to determine a maker. I'll be amazed if anyone can tell you anything about it.

    Zeppelin, yes. All that needs to be said.

    I really enjoyed Frenchy's furniture posts, insider drama, and non-confrontational stuff in general...

    Anyway, you guys are totally missing the point on Missoni! It's interesting, high quality stuff. Grab it if it fits, and you think you'll wear it. As far as their Target line goes, that's actually the most valuable of all (at least in terms of flipping) with items going for four, five, six times their retail price on eBay. At least a few months ago... It was really kind of silly; it was like you couldn't give away all the insanely-priced, high-quality stuff from Italy unless you related it to the current Target craze somehow.

    But in all seriousness this is a really quality sweater and not my size.

    I only liked Zep III.

    Zep 4, Zep 2, Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti had too few good songs although No Quarter, Stairway to Heaven and Kashmir are classics. I actually think No Quarter is one of the best songs ever - in my top 10 for sure!

    At the risk of hijacking this thread (and getting yelled at for it) I would like Zepplin if someone could mix out Robert Plan and put in a real singer that didn't talk about wizards and sh*t. Give me Jimmy Page when he was with the Yardbirds! Everyone knows that Blow Up is the best movie for style anyway :slayer:
