    Read the thread from the beginning. You'll learn (pretty much) everything you need to know.



    Anyway, not too much luck on the sunglasses front. I can offer proxy on the following:

    Ray Ban wayferer model 4141 - $59.99 + shipping and tax
    Ray Ban Wayferer model 2140 polarized - $59.99 + shipping and tax


    If not, these will be returned tomorrow.

    Or you can just use The Force. But, in my experience, there is no substitute for study, work and reading. In short, you have to earn it. Go forth, grasshopper.

    Burberry scarf commemorating the 150th Henley Royal Regatta. Found at the same store that yielded an Hermes scarf a few days ago.

    I can't imagine thrifting being good in Hawaii. Does anyone even wear a suit?

    Last time I was in Honolulu was a couple of years ago, so things may have changed.

    The Goodwill downtown yielded a few nice shirts (Hawaiian of course) - Reyn Spooner is a classic Hawaiian shirt dating from the 1950's. Very good opportunity to do some homework on some vintage shirts. Check out the internet for some other ideas;

    Not a thrift or discount store, but a local men's store, Peter-Blair, just moved across the street to a larger location and had a sidewalk sale yesterday. Picked up Southwick and Gitman Gold shirts for $35 each. Almost picked up a Johnstons cashmere scarf for $20, but my scarf collection is too big already.

    ^^Never heard much about her and I am, at times, almost literally around the corner from the shop. I read a brochure that stated she is from a long line of Italian tailors but attempted to reintroduce her brand by offering a more modern, I am guessing slim, cut and fashion forward design. I can't comment on the quality but I have seen a number of one buttons with her mark. Sorry if that doesn't really help.
