    Seriously? WTF! A Bose effing radio AND a kickass camera?? Mind = Blown. :worship: (Oh, also, the BB and the Isaia are very nice indeed. Are they black, or is that just the lighting? Available?)

    Huh. Really?

    My day: Meeting ran late. Drove 90MPH to get to the Will before closing; had to settle for a different, lesser Will on the way. Still only had about 10 minutes. Saw Church's in the display box. Black monks. Was all :bounce2:. They wanted $140. Was all :brick::censored: Settled for a Graham-like Ted Baker shirt, beat to hell pair of AE tassel loafs (pics if they rehab, otherwise I'll spare you) and a stained-ass BB1818 tie that I should have passed on but, because it got me the discount, I only paid, like, 80 cents for. Again, pics if it comes clean in dry cleaners.

    Passed on a pair of 7 For All Mankind Jeans (31 x 30ish). They wanted more than a Jackson for it. I know denim even less than I know shoes. Did I screw up?

    EDIT: Seriously, as if today wasn't painful enough, now I'm RIGHT after DM7's daily epic hoard? I thought you were "taking a break," dude! Just kidding, bro. (Just remember: You can quit anytime you want) I think Dunhill's Italian stuff is by Zegna. Nice stuff.

    Now to catch up on today's posts......
    It's the most recent label with the 3 names, but is likely from when they first changed over. I'd say very early 00's?
    Nice! Truzzi makes very nice shirts. They're one of my favorite makers.
    Now this thing is cool! I have a couple Oxford University rugbys that I love. Great outfit too, btw!
    Whoa, wait....what? That looks like a nice, solid staple Brioni to me. Not really dated looking either (the label is recent).
    Those PZ trousers are amazing, as is that Kiton you're sporting. :slayer:
    Wow - nice haul! T&A Sea Island Cotton is on another level.
    Gorgeous shoes! A steal, even at $20!
    Welcome! I'm sure you'll truly enjoy the analog goodness. That's a nice deck to start out with, too!
    Most likely. My brother has first dibs though. He's really into keyboards and pianos.
    :laugh:
    Helluva score for an in-n-out thrift trip. Only you could pull that off.
    +1

    Thanks, I had one maybe 10 years ago, not quite this nice. I have since switched my studio over to digital recording. Always regretted getting rid of it.

    I see Alexandre London quite often. Some is decent quality, but nothing to write home about and if your interest is in flipping, it won't really move.

    Re: Dormeul, I'd like to know too. I picked up a tie by them that I really like. It ties up a great knot and seems to be of very good quality, but I couldn't find much at all about them, so anyone wiser feel free to chime in.

    Alexandre is, if I'm not mistaken, sort of a joke. They do have a shop on Savile Row, but only so they can say they do. The quality is not good, and I believe not generally highly regarded in these parts. I have, however, seen things sell for a good amount on eBay from them.

    The Dormeuil cloth is excellent, though, especially on a Samuelsohn. That would sell nicely on here.

    Thanks to both of you gentlemen. The Dormeuil seemed to be very nice, I'll keep an eye out for it next time.

    I figured the Alexandre was nothing special. I didn't find anything impressive at the time I saw it.

    Thrifting brand new Aldens pretty much equals the holy grail find. Not the most valuable item I have seen thrifted, but in terms of improbability, it is up there.
