    I'm thinking this PS thing is a job for ... [​IMG] No one knows color and pocket squares (other than pocketsquare guy) the way Spoo knows it.
    Yeah, it's probably too matchy but I've mostly chickened out on pocket squares and go with a white linen TV fold 93% of the time. :embar:

    This is a pretty good iphone app too...maps the locations in order of closeness and gives turn by turn directions.

    This one too. Pulls garage sales off craigslist in your area.

    When I was younger I guess I thought dark matter and the number 7 were cool

    Thanks man. I will keep posting. I really am going to be serious about school for a bit though.

    Take the train up to LA, and I'll show you around.

    Err... haven't thought of taxes yet.

    Take a designated trip here some time this summer. I can help you find a place to stay, and show you the spots. I wouldn't be surprised if you'd be able to pay for the trip and more with your thrifting.

    Picked up a Donegal Tweed J.Press Blazer today. First J.Press and it appeared to be a good one so I went ahead and snagged it. 5% Cashmere / 35% Kid Mohair / 60% wool blend.

    Tagged 41L and appears to be Unworn. Available

    Also, I had been looking for 2 chairs to place in front of my 10' High x 8.5' Wide window in my living room. I am an architect so I will be holding out for some really sexy pieces of MVDR, Corb, Eames, Saarenin furniture to go here in the long run. But for now, these will do.

    Apropos of DM7, here's today's thrift pics

    DB SC by Corneliani from DM7, one of his first decent finds
    Shirt by Joseph Abboud, thrifted (this is pink, although it's hard to tell)
    Tie from the Tie Bar
    Pocket Square from Nordstrom Rack
    Pants from Bonobos
    Socks from Target
    Shoes by Cole Haan (hey, I still like them!)

    How'd I do with the shirt / tie / square combo?

    Very cool chairs, Samuel. Nice to find a pair, too.

    Yeah, I'd say that's a good one.

    Great colors, but I'd go with a Strand type shoe in brown/walnut with the DB jacket. Saddle design shoes seem too casual with the SC. Need more pinking and perfing.
