    Had an ok day today. Found a vintage Trek road bike. I'd say it's from the early 80's. 510 Chromoly frame. For $20 I couldn't say no. It's in great shape. Tires still had air.

    Horrible cell-phone picture taken from my friend's garage where it's currently being stored.

    Also found this recent Isaia jacket. It's an orphan judging by the patterns and buttons. Still, it's a beautiful piece. Side vented. Super 120s. Base S Gregory model. For $5 I couldn't say no. No sign of the pants anywhere. I think the jacket alone would look killer with a pair of white trousers and swap out the solid navy buttons for horn buttons. Eu 52 R.

    Also picked up a copy of "The Gentleman's Guide to Grooming and Style" by Bernhard Roetzel. An excellent read with loads of color photos. $2.99

    Here's what I picked up so far this week:

    Moreschi US 9.5. Available for trade.
    [​IMG]
    Looking at the Moreschi site, these are "Bergens". The Bergen's they have for sale are listed as wide in width, though these do not appear to be wide, and are not marked as such. The site also list them as being made from deerskin, though the textured leather looks and feels to be peccary. Maybe someone can correct me. Can you get that soft, quilted look and feel from deerskin?

    Ermenegildo Zegna US 8.
    [​IMG]

    RLPL 17.5 Shirts - Look and feel new, though one has a tiny mark on the inside front of the collar
    [​IMG]

    Miu Miu cardigan for my girlfriend. Hopefully it fits. Otherwise, available for trade.

    Ties - E. Marinella / BB Grenadine (the seam on the blade is pretty messed up, but who would ever see it. May research a DIY fix. See spoiler pic).

    Also picked up this lizard skin belt. Anyone recognize the logo?

    Very nice on all of the above. The belt might be Martin Dingman.

    Hey... a Brooks Brothers store. I bet you have odd hours and never carry anything in my size. Same with the HF store.


    I made a GW circuit today for the Polo pants. No dice, but I found these:
