    I think this is a great idea. I'm talking about the threesome of course, but the Ebay/SF seller idea is pretty good too.

    Looks good! I like the shirt/tie/suit combo and the pants with little/no break. One small criticism would be that the pocket square seems to match the tie/shirt combo just a tad too much. Maybe it's just the pictures, maybe it's me.

    Congrats! Although I'm a little disappointed you didn't wear the purple paisley finamore shirt.

    No, that's probably totally accurate. I have a really tough time talking myself away from matchy-matchy, mostly because I have no idea discerning what's an acceptable mismatch vs. what's totally effing out there and looks completely terrible. I almost went with a bright pink square but it seemed too out there and I just don't have the sense to discern good from bad yet so I talked myself out of it.

    LOL the wallet is not thrifted... it's the shell cordovan wallet from AE purchased from the Shoe Bank on sale, though. ;)

    Photos (of my own kids) were inserted last summer. I think part of the surprise was because I'm (relatively) young.

    I am fighting with this decision, I have been looking for something like this for a very long time. Bit, I am more like a 11.5, this one is rather tight

    Nice coat! Bonobos pants used to be a steal, but not so much since they revised their business strategy and quit doing all the promotions.

    Been very busy recently and just caught up on this thread. I'm liking that BB Italian 41R suit a few posts back! The black eyeball speakers are pretty hawt, as well.

    Meanwhile, I have parted ways with my Naked & Famous jeans. There was a LOT of interest in them but given what others here have done for me regarding black shirts, I tried to 'pay it forward' and let them go for cost+shipping.

    I finally got into a couple of stores today for the first time in a while and found a pair of Brazilian Franco Sarto strappy sandals for SWMBO and this long sleeve linen shirt for me for our Puerto Rican vacay next month. It fits smaller than the size suggests. My resort wear wardrobe is growing!

    My top coat collection so far....
    Mackintosh style but with a zip out quilted lining so it can be worn all winter. Any body seen this tag before?
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Yes I see that tag quite often. What you have is a Canadian military issue item.
