    So disappointing! That thing is awesome.

    Are there any methods you might try to remove it?

    Picked up these two ties today. Robert Talbott on the left and Hickey-Freeman on the right. Robert Talbott looks to have been made in England. I'm keeping the Talbott, but the HF is Available.

    Today finds:

    APC pants tagged 36 but measure 34" x 28" (w/ almost 2" extra inches) Olive/Brown in color, pleated.

    Hunting World Made in England pants...khaki/mohair (I think) material. Also tagged 36.

    Had to pass om a cream Aquascutum SC. It had one small hole that looked like it could have been rewoven, but there appeared to be a weak area in the material that could have developed into a bigger hole so I left it.

    I just want to say thank you to the wasteful people of the San Francisco Peninsula. I found these Prada shoes (my size even) for $4.50.

    I got a light blue Isaia DB jacket in my size, 100% silk, light brown horn buttons. The Isaia brand tag was removed, but I recoganize the size tag! The real confusing thing about this jacket is that the model is "44280 A" on the size tag. Does it mean that it is a suit jacket? But 100% silk and nice contrasting horn buttons... I can't believe it :brick:

    Alright, I also got a Z. Zegna Su Misura grey with subtle blue windowpane sportcoat in EU54 R, made in Italy in Dec. 2004. With working button holes. Available.

    In your thrift store 10 minutes ago
    

    I've not been to a thrift store on a sunday morning at 9 to open it up with people waiting there...and today despite turning our clocks ahead (i.e. the equivalent of getting up an hour earlier) there were 10 people at this store...seemed intense for that hour, I guess. To me.
