    D1's look good and a great price. Maybe a bit less break.

    Thrifted fit pic. iPhone and no full length mirrors means this is all I can take. However, it fits exactly like I want it to. :D

    Ah Man Hing-Cheong bespoke
    Charles Tyrwhitt shirt
    Italian maker tie (can't remember maker)

    Shoes are Alden Shell boots seconds.

    Not much to work with to get my revenge here; it's almost like you took a closeup to thwart a comment on the shoulders. Love the color combo, though. Just not a fan of a four-in-hand. I know it's a standard, but I just prefer the symmetry of a half Windsor -- esp on shirts with a decent collar stance and spread. Just my 0.02.

    Typhoid: Lovin' the fit, esp the jacket and tie. Just can't get used to that breast pocket flap...

    And can I state the obvious? That Oxy Clean magic treatment is insane! The Brioni onesie tux shirt and the T&A sea island french cuff shirt look brand new.

    I think I hear ebay calling my name ...

    Not sure what revenge you are talking about. I've never commented on anyone's fit nor have I ever addressed you in any way that I know of. Strange comment.

    As for critique, I don't really need one. I already know my stuff fits me exactly how I like it tol. :D I'm just posting to show thrifted stuff.

    The label is looking right to me, but I am far from an expert. Look here.

    Thats wat she said.[​IMG]

    Sorry I couldn't resist. Really though, that is what my wife said this afternoon when I brought them in. I have begun to get through to her with my on going education of the differences in calf skin and shell cordovan. I guess she does listen to me sometimes.
