    Net loss: Check.
    Waste of time: Check.
    Glad I left it behind: Check.
    A couple minutes exploring a pretty well made garment: Check. I'm happy enough with that. Thanks Spoo.

    ....it's the best tailored, slimmest shirt I've ever picked up. I imagined full on Robert Graham via Milan for the first Etro I'd find, not the case.

    I might be tripping like a motherfucker, but that first piece looks like an Attolini label to me. Full disclosure; I'm on my cell phone and can't search and am only guessing based on memory. Definitely looks high quality, imo.

    Nothing crazy MSRP or construction-wise, but a total grail find for me. If that were a medium, I'd be all over it. Hiroshi's stuff is coveted by people in the know because it follows the whole Visvim/Nonnative/Nepenthes trend, but is made in China with lots of crazy details. I will one day own the cardigan he debuted in 2010...it was on Gilt once but I slept on it, of course. Totally campy with the anchor detail, but I'm a sucker for shawl collars and wooden buttons, not to mention the Thom Brown shout out stripes.

    +1 I'm thinking Attolini as well.

    I just started thrifting not too long ago.

    I got a Brooks Brother shirt today. 16/33 It fits really well.

    DB SC vintage. 39 regular. I made it 39 short. Very unique double label buttonhole.

    1965 vintage check SC. Labeled as 43 regular. It fist like a 40. Thinking about making it into a short. Ignore the pants and vest.

    Got this in a San Diego thrift store. Thought it was unique. Posting it for kicks.

    Don't use html. Use [ IMG] [ / IMG ] tags around the image URLs instead (without spaces).
