    ^^^ Thanks! It took me a couple of tries to get some sort of a balance between too little and too much. I originally wanted to make it look a little like a store window or something from a catalog (too much). I came to agree with the consensus that less is more in order to highlight the clothes (a little too little = just right). The real work has turned out to be updating the pictures for my Ebay listings and Etsy shop...

    ... but it's fun picking different hats to put on the shelf that relate to Perry's outfits (my wife decided he seemed like a "Perry").

    I forget who used to make the real deal Lanvin stuff, but it was something like St.Andrews/ChesterB/something like that. This looks better than most licensed crap, are there any other pictures? Its pretty rare to find the Lanvin good stuff, but my bat signal perked up when I saw this, I dunno.

    Damn, well it looks like I need to go back and pick up that Lanvin I bypassed the other day. Yes, it is made in the USA and fully canvassed.

    Decent day today.

    Ties

    - BBGF
    - Really cool Ferragamo

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Shirts

    - Bamford & Sons
    - House of Carrington. A Local upper-tier men's clothier stocks this line. Not super high-end, but well made and I loved the pattern and fit.
    - MTM dress shirts (1 year old) for local upper-tier men's clothier. Fits me quite well.
    - RLX double L/S shirts (not pictured)
    - RLX baller sweatpants (metal drawstring ends, very luxurious fabric) for lounge-wear. (not pictured)
    - Couple vintage (Made in USA. 1991-92 vintage) Ren & Stimpy shirts for shits and giggles. Brings back good memories and they fit.

    Pants
    - Nudies Easy Emil jeans. 36x34.
    - Recent J. Crew "Vintage slim" jeans. (not pictured)

    Womens. Grabbed a bunch of upper-end women's stuff for the wife. A cool Made in the USA National Graphic fashiony-tee shirt with a panda print on it. Stuff from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Missoni, Rag & Bone, Tory Burch, Alex & Olivia, Alexander Wang and Smythe Les Vestes. She'll probably turn down a good 80% of it. :rolleyes:

    Other

    - Bose wave radio. $7
    - Lumix 12 MP Digital "hybrid" camera. "Hybrid" meaning a cross between a point & shoot and DSLR. W/ box and manuals. Takes HD 1080P videos. Only missing the charger. Got this for a absolute steal! Anyone want a nice camera for B/S or eBay listings?
    - Roland Alpha Juno 2 Synthesizer. $20
