    Interesting. I don't think I even looked in that area--I'll have to check.


    I'm not looking for any compensation with bike parts since he's doing it for charity in an area that really needs it. I would, however, like to show him I'm serious and would like first pick at some of the more rare items that he gets in.

    :( I thought the Coke sign was a good addition. It being red would attract a lot of attention in an eBay thumbnail. Oh well, I'll probably do the rest outside in the garden then.


    Yes, it is magnificent. I think the following answer answers your question pretty well:



    Ah, damn. Finding one made by Belvest would have made it even a little sweeter.

    +1 That is extremely distracting. White background. Probably need the light source a bit higher as the shadows on the shoulders are fairly dark.

    That flight back from Malaysia almost killed me, but I'm back (and yes, I resisted buying any "genuine copy" Rolex watches from Chinatown, though my boss gobbled them up).

    On my first thrifting run back on American soil, I picked up a few records for my collection, along with these khaki pants that actually fit. Of course, someone had cut out the content tag (why the hell do people insist on doing that?). My first Zegna trousers, though, so that's cool, right?

    And I've got a question for the women's clothing experts:


    BCBG is a well-known brand, right? But this is an old label, I guess. I picked this up because it looked well made, but I don't know anything about it. My wife has been looking for a toggle coat, but the minute I picked it up, I knew it was too big for her. Any info on this?

    Haven't posted in a while, since things have been dry. Have picked up a few things.

    A semi-recent Samuelsohn tuxedo in my size. Some nice shirts - Canali, Charles Tyrwhitt, BB woven in Italy, & HF.

    I also picked up my first Charvet tie, which is a little beat up due to GW tying it and hanging it on a rack for who knows how long. I think it was Spoo who recent commented on their knots, and he wasn't wrong. This thing makes the best knot I've ever tied without me doing anything different. Practically tied itself.

    I also picked up some shirts with the hope of making them work, but, alas, they were all too big/small for me.

    AVAILABLE:

    Faconnable linen shirt (tagged L), Canali (tagged 15, seems about 32 sleeve)

    Robert Talbott Best of Class casual shirts fresh from the dry cleaners x 3 (tagged L, with thick MOP buttons, I believe)

    Agree. Am huge fan of the Coke Cola but distracting from the jacket. Sure they love the free advertising though.

    Interesting find yesterday. A Balenciaga Paris shirt. It fit me well, so it is a keeper.

    Chest: 42"
    Sleeves: 25"
    Shoulders: 19.5" (some padding in the shoulders)
    Length(boc): 30.75"

    Pattern is slightly more subtle in real life--picture is slightly over-exposed.
