    Scored me some sweet size 38 Bill's Khakis, M1 model, flat front, fresh from the dry cleaners, bitches! I like these things, mostly because they look sleek and are so thick they can stand up on their own. :D

    Due to recent breaking news that selling thrift finds = maturity, I am making these available to someone for a low, low price.
    Slayer guy: :slayer:

    Also kopped one of those ab wheels to offset the recent Oatmeal Cream Pie hauls.

    Grendel trying to satisfy the shoe addiction by buying what's a little tight for me, and a little loose for Eazye!

    Was getting tired of seeing finds and haven't been out in a while so I just hit a GW in the city by my new office. Was heartbroken for Brian or myself when I couldn't find the pants to a super recent Brooks suit (looked like the new label a step under golden fleece ) in 36/30, then found a pair of moth ridden Brioni pants and finally a stained Isaia Napoli shirt. Didnt have much time to look, but there were also some nice ties. Slightly more than LA prices but I've got a good feeling about being in NY this summer, a lot of the things I saw were a lot smaller or normal sized compared to LA. Anyone that's like a 16/34 there were like ten Charles t. Shirts there as well I could probably proxy after I get paid.

    I'm gonna need to actually branch out into thrift stores while I'm here for a few months too. It's hard to do Alot at lunch and after work at times with firm events though. Anyone in NY though.... It's on. Hide ya Polos, hide ya brionis, cuz we taking errthang.

    I just moved out of Riverwest, which I still think is the coolest neighborhood in town :slayer:

    Now I live in a pretty bland, post-war neighborhood (I'm trying to embrace mid century modern, but it is really just mid-century post war). Saves us almost 2 hours a day of kids commuting to school - we can actually hear their school bell from out yard now. Not as cool, but worth it. Besides, I can still go back to Riverwest and the East side to hang out.

    Yea, I lived in Riverwest for about 12 years, I had my fair share of fun, also saw my fair share of murders, but that's city living at its rawest, that's for sure. :D

    Did anyone get in on DM's T&A deal? I don't want to clutter up the thread, so PM me if you did. I tried to buy, but no dice. I'm just wondering what happened.

    Nice work on the Marinella eazy. I've bought 5+ of these from Spoo and others and they are definitely my favorite tie!

    I tried to get in on it too, but it didn't work out. He put a couple aside for me, but the colors and patterns just didn't work out. He ended up sending them off to consignors, so you should see them showing up soon on 2010 greek, mainy's, and hmurdock's ebay pages in the next few weeks...

    Damn, impressive amount of quality goods coming. Mine are clearly outmatched, unless you have a thing for trad attire and mediocre ties...

    Classic union made BB blazer, 40R. Three roll two, single vent and just about fit me...didn't realize the glaring moth hole in the shoulder (and another one on a sleeve) until I got it home :embar: Anyone know a decent reweaver in upstate NY?

    Another BB classic in 40R, but definitely a slimmer fit than today's 40R from them. Quarter lined brown tweed single vent. Love this lapel roll. Bit big, so available.

    100% cashmere tie by Les Copains. Research says it looks to be manufactured by Zegna. It's just a knit, not a grenadine, right?

    Authenticity on this Zegna?

    First sunny day in Boston in a week. I finally had the chance to photograph a couple of things that I'd sent to the cleaners / alterations tailor for some minor repairwork. Not Available.

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ Vintage Brooks Brothers GOLDEN FLEECE solid navy blue 2 piece sack suit 40 R.

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ Vintage 1950s / 1960s Brooks Brothers 346 solid navy blue two piece sack suit with subtle micro-herringbone pattern 42 L.

    If Perry the mannequin gets bored standing next to my writing desk, he could probably get a new job in a bank writing mortgages.
