Oh, ok..thought it seemed like an odd request, but I was surely ready to accomodate.
Those are pretty sweet....would be very interested if I didn't think shipping from Austria would be a little pricey.....
FYI- They have a buy 1 get 2 free for shoe trees and lots of other stuff (not actually shoes though, they might be one of the only things excluded) thru Sat I believe; I ordered some trees yesterday.
love that show.........
I need to work on that "break even plan" mentioned in the article.
They have a buy 1 get 2 free deal right now... Unfortunately I just did a buy 2 get 1 free to get 3 shoe trees this week.
Oh, well. Still a good deal and the shoe trees are really nice.
Made a run on my lunch break and made a probably not wise decision to not pick up these Trafalgar braces:
^^ Yeah, that was a bit of a mistake. Those look like Limited Edition braces.
Stuck at work now for a few hours. How much should I sell Nataku the location for?
We'll see if they are still there in 2 1/2 hours... there was a bunch of other braces I couldn't find manufacturer names on at a glance. Where do you usually find that?
I'm feeling quite lethargic today so I won't be getting out there. Keep your eyes peeled for Thurston braces too. I usually find the names imprinted on the brass hardware if they don't have any sign of a makers label/tag.
Ah perfect. I was just checking for tags on the back part where everything comes together. Hope everything is still there..
Not a terrible day:
A Mil Mil SC. 56 not available.
A Chester Barrie SC. Navy with subtle Herringbone stripe. Recent. May be an orphan but texture fits SC. 40S and available.
A BOS buttondown just to miff SW folks. Medium (but looks pretty small to me), powder yellow, available
Two BB chinos which will fit so not available.
Passed too many Pendleton, BB etc shirts even some Zgnas bc didn't like them. Their availability gives me hope though.
Passed a 3/2 old BB cotton suit bc was 25 bucks and I did not feel like spending that much. Then the cashier gave me 30% senior discount (not a favor, she did think I was over 55 ) but it was too late to go back. Sorry tradly brethren.
I don't look a day over 40! Stupid girl!
Pics of CB and BOS to follow when I can, others went to cleaners.
Went to several new to me stores today but in the wrong order. Ran out of money and had to leave behind several E. Zegna shirts and an E. Zegna Soft SC size 56. There was also a plethora of Robert Talbott ties for H. Stockton and some Paul Stuart ties (probably weren't many worth picking up though anyways).
Got a few things for myself at the earlier stores (Nordstrom made to measure shirt for some dude who was my size, Zanella shirt, Trafalgar belt to match some of my boat shoes, London Fog single-breasted concealed button trench with zip out liner).
Some things that will be available:
Zanella shirt sz. L
Canali french cuffed sz. 16 1/2
E. Zegna sz. 17
Brioni for Neiman Marcus sz. 17 (though I have discovered several issues with it now that I have it out of the store, booo)
BB 42R suit 3 roll 2 partially lined summer suit (very trad).
I'll take some pics after I charge the camera batteries.
Shipping from here is expensive, but not too bad for single items. €7, maybe €8? I'd have to check it out. PM me if you're interested, I wouldn't klil anyone on shipping prices. I often lose money on shipping to the US on eBay.
How is pal zileri? Worth a flip?
