    I do indeed. This was actually my first post on Style Forum :teach: The coat only appeared in the pilot. Afterwards, they had to change costume designers; Martin Freeman now wears a Haversack shooting-style jacket in every episode (and sometimes, a waxed Barbour, as well). Side note: the costume designers on that show do such an amazing job of using wardrobe to accentuate the characters.

    Probably the coolest braces I've found so far, silk knit. Anybody ever seen any like this before?
    [​IMG]

    Bloomingdales Italian Alligator Calfskin belt. Tits! Too bad it's a small, going to see if it fits my wife, otherwise might have to take it to the leathersmith.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Handrolled scarf for the wife, some more handrolled silk squares, one even has an old Macy's tag, so NWT I guess.
    [​IMG]

    Another tie rack for my ever expanding tie collection. Never seen one like this before, has a drawer with a lid on top to hold shit.

    Finally, a vintage Corvette pit crew jacket? Pretty cool. Up for trade if anybody has a Corvette:)

    Exceedingly cool. Any other sponsor patches? Oil/ Gas related? Probably get decent $ on ebay! I've seen vintage VW jackets in that style go for good $.

    That is pretty cool. I haven't seen the show at all....not even an ad for it. Didn't actually know it existed.

    Can do when I get home, but the jacket is definitely older than the car.

    It even matches. Electron blue, baby! Definitely the fastest color...

    I found this in December at a thrift chucked in with the cheap suits. Richard Anderson Savile Row bespoke jacket. I couldn't find much about it on line. Of course it doesn't fit either of the guys so I put it on ebay. I think it lasted 2 days before someone bought it. I took a ton of images of all the handwork. It was a really nice jacket. Since I sew being able to check all the details up close in your hands rather than a picture on the internet was a great opportunity. I hated to see it go but at least it has a good home now.

    Ha, I almost did too, but they're really very nice shoes and were super cheap on discount day. I'm sure there's *someone* around here that has a tough time finding this size and would be glad to have these [​IMG]. They're only half a size too small for BP.


    [​IMG]So, any small footed dudes, get at me.
