I'm sorry, did somebody say my name...?
Never fear, young padawan. Your attire just happened to ignite some raging cases of OCD, no biggie.
people on the internet are so weird. can't wait to take a suit w/ sneakers fit pic when i'm in vegas next month and post it in this thread
Do you also believe her when she says "I'm not mad"? Given 2 days notice, you did the best thing by not rewarding that behavior with something like dressing conventionally.
Does any one know Balmain? Some of their stuff sells for crazy amounts on ssense and sites like that, but I see too much of it (in my thrift bare area) for me to think its the same thing. Is there a cheap line? What label style should I look out for?
i wouldn't bother trying to educate yourself on it simply because the odds of you finding the balmain that is worth money are basically 1 in a billion, everything you're seeing is just the old diffusion lines
stay please, you find sweet stuff and I wanna keep seeing it
the shoes are balling as fuck.
If he had had a white shirt, I don't think I'd even dislike it.
Dude, if you aren't prepared to get your fit torn to shreds, don't post a pic. You put a pic up, you're subject to anything on the inter webs has to say. Good, bad, true, or untrue.
This is WAY off topic but...
...I was doing some research for a friend on a car forum that I frequent and stumbled across a story of a dude with a ...
...who used it as a truck to haul building materials IN HIS TRUNK!!
The magnificent machine, of course, declined to perform this ridiculous task for the man and stopped dead in traffic and refused to transport the offensive cargo another inch. The driver, when later offered advice on his foolhardiness, responded...
I bet the guy carries loose change in the pants pocket of his Tom Ford suit. I mean, really?
Oh wow. Talk about ironic! Timing is everything.
A little trip report:
Yesterday, more for the ride than the destination, I jumped on the bike and rode to Manchester, VT to see what was there at the Orvis mothership. NEver been before.
I was greeted by a cop cruiser directing traffic into the parking lot for their memorial day weekend tent sale. Interesting! I cased the tent and the three floors of factory outlet, and they had everything there (not one of everything, but something from every category of stuff they sell, including luggage and leather goods) and I walked off with 3 linen shirts (I seem to be collecting those right now) for about $16 a pop, two short sleeves and one long. And a Col. Littleton iPad case for half price. But I could have gotten a lot more (sweaters, pants, they have a ton of really nice belts). SInce I was on the motorcycle and between consignment checks from our eBay pals here, I kept it minimal.
Then, as they rung me up, cashier said. "Free pulled pork sandwiches at the main store!"
"What?" I answered.
"You heard me."
"Where's the main store?"
"Across the field," she pointed in the general direction.
So I walk across the field and sure enough, there's a practice casting pond loaded with big, fat trout, another three floors of Orvis at the main HQ, a band playing (you guessed it, it's vermont) Dead and blues covers, and a local caterer with his mobile BBQ van handing out free pulled pork sandwiches and cole slaw.
Even if it's not Memorial Day, I recommend going. Some good deals happening there and a very pleasant outing.
The iPad case:
Stuff thats worth monty is black label and BALMAIN (all caps) PARIS. the new pierre balmain diffusion line is worthless, the old pierre balmain diffusions are rags. vintage balmain isn't popular so don't worry about it
looks like this
Wow, you sir are a treasure trove of knowledge. Thanks kindly!
