    at first I thought we just had a legitimate peek inside of Mr. Spoo's closet.

    HMMMM..... would the shepherd's check be fit for a groom on his wedding day? or should I just do bowtie? (July wedding btw)


    yes, yes and yes. but they aren't at a GW/SA etc. they are at a place that stocks solely these kind of shirts / paraphenalia. happy to visit and post an iPhone tour a la Spoostyle, if you want.

    Were any of the 56's suits or were all those sport coats?

    Also, doodz, does anyone know about Church's "Masterclass" line? They're definitely vintage, and from what I can tell from the interwebz, they are pre-Prada-purchase, and were higher than the "Custom Grade" line [​IMG]. This is the only used completed listing I can find on the 'bay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...Al6HvHM%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc#ht_842wt_1163, which is very [​IMG], but those are in much better shape than the ones I picked up. Anyone in the know about the relative quality of these (or even a breakdown of Church's designations in that era), info is much appreciated.

    No no.. EU sizes. 44-52 US.


    Id certainly say so, yes. More so for July - the silk is a crisp, tight, fresh silk. Perfect for a summer wedding. Congrats btw.

    Is the concert tour shirt place priced thrifty or like they know what they are doing? :laugh:


    Was a Zegna Su Misura peak lapel shadow stripe in navy.

    Scorpions is a bit too new for my knowledge, but that Blind Faith LP is worth some bread if it's an original pressing. Naked girl on the front playing with a toy airplane, right? That's the banned cover. Thing is, they've since reissued this album with the controversial cover for collector purposes. I would definitely go back and grab it if it was at a thrift price. Even if it's not an original pressing, it's a damn good album.

    I found a tag in that Burberry jacket that says made in Saudi Arabia. Proves it for me. I did get these the other day which makes up for it I think.

    Way off topic, but is anyone here about 6'2" and 185lbs, thin build? I have a guy looking to buy a sc for his nephew as a surprise gift. He has no idea the measurements or size. I want to try and help him out. If anyone is this approximate size please PM me your ideal jacket measurements. Thx

    But if the only 40 was a 40S they wouldn't fit you, right?
