    I am sure it is authentic. But I find it rather ugly. Looks very 1992ish How are you planning on wearing it?

    I like the Chanel. Slim it and rock it. :slayer:

    @VLSI, you have to navigate the WAYWT waters just right to get honest feedback. Too often, you get hate from forum enemies, and thumbs from forum allies.

    -- I mail ties in the smallest padded envelope sold at the post office. Peeps I've asked said it's satisfactory? (I'm sure you can find these cheaper elsewhere...) tl;dr: yes.

    -- Lit Fits will be book-inspired get-ups. Those camo pants are Catch-22. :happy:

    Master and Margarita - Cat costume - do it!

    I bought a few boxes and envelopes from walmart. ~$.50 per rather than the $1.20-1.80 at the post office.

    Then why weren't people more excited about the Vacca shirt I posted a few weeks back? :(



    Speaking of audio, I found a Creek 4140S2 integrated amp today. Pics to come.

    First good day I've had in some time....

    Polo Ralph Lauren Made In Italy Sz 12D (available)

    Ties L to R:
    Luciano Barbara (first LB thing ever found...and it's really thick :slayer:)
    Zegna (not as thick as the LB...but close)
    Vineyard Vines (golf theme...will go on eBay to cover gas)
    Dunhill (made in Italy)

    [​IMG]

    Givenchy Paris tagged EU42

    Also found three pairs of Bills Khakis M2 size 38. One pair was a bit short/slim and will be available. The others will be added to my ever growing collection.

    Passed on a Ferragmo button down. The color was odd (orange), and it looked like there might have been a few flows in the material. Didn't see squat for sports coats or suits other than a couple Mark Shale's.

    Mofos have been KILLING it with shoes in my size. Why you all no like my clothes diet? (BTW, lysol to the shoes. No fungi .... yet.)


    Don't tease me, bitch.


    :wow: Super jelly of the choc brown Oxxfords.


    Pretty sure I speak for everyone here when I say "we won't".


    EDIT: Anyone ever try to de-kilt a pair of shoes? I have a pair of kilted loafers. They'd be really great, sans kilt. I've got a pretty steady hand with an exacto knife. Can I cut along the top edge of the kilt, where it meets the tongue? There's a slight roll there, so it seems theoretical that it won't be noticeable. But I have no idea whether the leather under the sewn-down portion of the kilt is even finished..... (Yes, I know I could consult my cobbler, and probably will. But I trust you all more).

    Now that is quite a rare find, recent Givenchy. I have maybe only seen two recent pieces like that in 2 years of thrifting - I see more Hermes than Givinchy. Good pants kop for anyone with a waist of presumably 30 - 32".
