    Are you sure those Florsheims are patent leather? They look kind of shell-y to me.

    I had a couple say the same thing the first time I posted them. I'm 99.9% sure there not shell. I've got a couple pair in the stable and these just feel more plasticky. I could be wrong though. Wanna buy them from me and find out? :smarmy:

    Need the shell spreadsheet, please.

    Also, picked up a couple things, MOP cufflinks and studs (by Swank) and a seperate set of 4 studs in gold and black, whatever.

    Real nice Etro, size 40, super soft, neck is 16, too small for me, but I'll wear it without a tie, rest fits perfect:

    That zegna is a Z Zegna, which is their more "accessible" brand, it is fairly recent though, and pretty nice!

    I guess I really started something with all the cufflinks, now everyone is finding them. Found another pair last night, but left them cuz I didn't want to put $0.50 in a credit card. They will probably be there on Wednesday when I go back.

    Question...

    I came across a whole huge bin of books of upholstry/curtain samples. most were about 10-12" square. Would I be a complete retard to pick them up as pocket squares.

    ^^^ Thanks guys! I really liked the lighting for that Sulka.

    ^^^ Stealing pictures? Who does that? And how do you know they're doing it? This is a whole new level of [​IMG] that never even crossed my mind.

    All available:

    Vintage linen BR jacket. Awesome colors; could be NOS as the exterior pockets are still basted. 100% linen. Tagged S, fits somewhere around a 39 or 40. Unvented.

    Vintage Stacy Adams longwings. These were walnut in color; the previous owner used a lot of polish. I cleaned them up with Renovatur but did not buff the old polish out - I think it gives these shoes an awesome antiqued look. Tagged 9.5 B/D. Made in the US -- these things are old and from when SA was a really respectable brand. If you wanted, you could return these things to their original color pretty easily. Would look awesome with a pair of indigao/raw jeans.

    Vintage Abercrombie Camel hair blazer. I posted this awhile ago. I wanted to keep it as it is in perfect condition and totally beautiful; however, the sleeves would need to be taken down and I am loathe to attempt to do so and ruin the jacket. Thought I'd let someone here kop it if it fits. It's a 40R.

    Their the shirt studs. They have the long stick part that goes through the "stud" hole instead of the round "stud" like the black and gold ones.
