    I forgot to post this from when I saw it last Saturday. Didn't kop, but thought it was pretty cool. Also the highest quality/most expensive item I've seen at one of the discount shops. PRL for Corneliani, pure (raw??) silk. Original "compare at" price as $800. Can someone explain the purpose/functionality of that flap above the left lapel?

    Also, found shoes yesterday that are too small even for Brianpore (!!). Imperial longwings with v-cleat in 6.5D.

    It's to close up the coat against the elements. There should be a button both under the flap (to button it back, tucked under which will make the coat appear to be a regular notch lapel) as well as another button under the opposite lapel. That looks like their Garrison-Desmond cut.

    I know, this one is a sears 100% poly, gonna throw it up on ebay and see if it gets any bites. What with the association with mad men and all. It was dirt cheap, so if not, I won't be too upset.

    Don't worry about it. These reply boxes are not the user friendliest.

    So, this time, your quote didn't show up. Am I doing something wrong? Also whenever I want to show my haul for the day, it get's held for moderation and gets lost in the day's posts...frustrating.

    Your next step is to put together a fit all sourced from the same other forum member.:D Looks like you and toscano are already well on the way there.

    Finally got around to getting the pics of the Shell Cordo Graysons I mentioned the other day.

    Here are a couple of pics.

    Oh...so that's why they are selling so well. I never watched Mad Men. That makes more sense now.

    Sorry, on my bb, so no quote box: re Alexandre, I agree with what has been said re, etc. Doesn't match up to the nice stuff we find. BUT: if you are looking for something fun and playful in terms of color combos that is not overpriced/100% fused like Ted Baker or made of polyester and made by chimpanzees (like Merona), this is your brandoften nice fabrics and make a decent travel suit (because who cares if it gets folded into a letter-size brick in your luggage). I have similar views on Austin Reed. I know my views are not SF approved, but at cheap thrift prices in my size, I sometimes kop.

    Nataku: re: oxford rugby shirts. are you talking OURFC replica jerseys, or ones with the university crest? If the former, I agree 100%rugby shirts are my swd of choice, usually. And my dark blue ourfc replicas are king. The older ones by oxford cotton are best. I will KOP on true replica Oxford kit (ourfc or oubc) 100% of the timeif you are finding it, I want it. (Reliving my glory years, I suppose).

    Haha, do not tempt me, man! No more jackets for me, save for that very elusive Dr. Watson jacket from the Sherlock pilot.
