    ROCK THOSE! You'll get mad compliments wearing them. They're the cherry on top of a tux sundae.

    I know its considered good form - but I could never get myself to wear something that feminine - even while in rome. Whats wrong with a pair of patent plain toe bals?

    If it's a vintage Plycraft, you can still fetch ~$500 for that chair pretty easily, especially if there's a big market for MCM furniture in your area. Even if it's not a period Plycraft, a few hundred ($3-400) is pretty standard for a Eames style lounge, especially in that good of condition.

    Has anyone heard of Caviglia Uomo? They have thick MOP buttons and side gussets.

    Yeah, so I've been told more than once.

    I'm cryin'! B&L Wayfarers? The Hugos are tasty as well.

    Good job!

    :paranoia:

    Capitals in place. Punctuation correct. Spelling and sentence structure good. OK, then. You are not Frenchy!

    :D

    Also been a member for three years with an abysmal post count due to mostly lurking B&S before the conversion. I just know a bit as a few of my good friends run one of the more renowned MCM shops in town, so exposure to the culture was inevitable. I'd wager that Frenchy/valium didn't himself actually find 90% of what he posted here, but rather had "pickers" find the stuff, and then consign it to him for a cut, unless Canada really is a breeding ground for absurdly abundant pieces in seemingly perfect condition. I've only seen one piece worth grabbing in a few years, which was a Broyhill Sculptura credenza for 80$, which I flipped to my friends for $400, and they sold it the next day for $1500.

    That said, in the past week I found 3 pairs of Ferragamo shoes in 7.5D, two captoes (black and congac) and one congac double monk, all of which fit perfectly. Been lusting after a pair of double monks for a few years, and now that summer is right around the corner, my grail has been found. I'm still considering ditching the black pair, so if you're looking for a pair of black captoes Brianpore, let me know.

    I also stumbled upon a staple Indochino navy blazer which fits immaculately without alteration, to my surprise, considering I'm a 35-36R. It's probably one of the best fitting garments I now own, even compared to that which I've had tailored, due to my apparently odd body shape.
