    Nevermind the bad pics, no digital camera right now other than on cell phone.

    Any idea on this brand Bernard Zins? Why does the price tag say $495?

    Pants are fully lined, and made of cashmere / wool blend.

    Kopped two pairs though, NWT SZ 40, but cost me $35 per pair. Hope I did not make a horrible mistake.

    A couple ties... Another Madras for my collection. Anyone heard of "Pen West, a division of Pendleton"? I've seen a lot of Pendleton, but not this one.

    And a first for me... Hermes! Found a spot on it when I got it home.. Do you guys usually get them dry cleaned or try to spot clean yourself?

    Also picked up these 3 standard (2 pleats) Zanellas... 2 are marked 36 and one marked 34, but all measure out the same to about 36.5" waist. 2 are 32" inseam and the other is 33", all with a 1.5" pleat. Available and cheap if someone wants all 3.

    Also picked up a pair of NWOT Bonobos - These things are great and remind me of the Kiton pants I passed up at Marshalls. Should make for great golf pants (side note: stop putting cuffs on flat fronts >,<) Jury on these?

    I picked up a jacket for my brother a few months ago that had this label. It's pretty nice, actually. That's about all I know of it, tho.

    I love my Bonobos. The cut is the best thing about them. They fit really well and are very flattering. I'll take those off your hands if they're available [​IMG]

    I'd brag about my finds but I'm a few beers in tonight and frankly all the stuff is still sitting in my car. Long story short...grensons, flat front Zanellas, Incotex, Etro & broini shirts and Oxford and ez sport coats. Beer and SF is a dangerous thing. Pray for me to keep out of he B&S.

    CALLING ALL WEEKEND WARRIORS!!

    Are you an accountant that needs an escape? Are you a doctor that feels unappreciated and needs an outlet to feel like a badass?

    Have you been unsatisfied with your motorcycle gear? Are you tired of wearing the same generic Harley pants?

    Maybe you just want your pants to match your kicks.

    Are you a size 33x30ish?

    This is your chance to UPGRADE TO UNICORNS
