    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Had in my hands a size 44 Loro Piana (NOT Loro Piana Fabric for insert random company here) Brown Checkered Sport Coat.... Unstructured, 3-roll-2, mint condition with no flaws.

    For $45... I let it go, as it was too big for me. Was it a steal or just a good deal?

    Well, you have to sacrifice something by ordering online. I liked the last baker I used as she shipped things out overnight, so the person would receive cookies that had been baked within the last day. I'd be happy to order from your girlfriend's sister if she could offer the same shipping options.

    My father-in-law played hockey for years and has the knees to prove it. He doesn't understand my distate for winter sports, but I just enjoy the spring/summer too much to take part. :)


    I'll try to get my wife to get baking. She does have a "baking party" planned one weekend soon and I'm supposed to take the dog and go drinking for the day. Not her exact words, but that's how I heard it.

    PSA: Spoo had a birthday.



    I wasn't sure, but the belt looked pretty dry. I suppose Spoo knows what he's talking about as he's a croc/alligator afficionado.


    Nice find! I'd love to try a Brioni polo. I've thought about going through Kent Wang for a MTM, but I'd love to find a Brioni polo in my size for less than €10.

    Not even that - Gucci belts are not made in Venezuela.

    Closed now... I'll go back tomorrow first thing in the morning.

    What's the market value of this in size 44 anyway? Ebay is flooded with name spamming LP fabrics.

    Eh, that's alright. It is my size, which is why I bought it. So I am not sad. It's a nice belt.

    The Gucci buckle has, what seem to be, the right markings. Random belt on a Gucci buckle??

    Wow! Feel free to send some of those Minnesota-way if you ever have an excess. :D

    Those cookies and baked good look amazing and your area.....wow. Beautiful!



    +1. Big mistake on leaving that. As Spoo said, run back ASAP. I'd be waiting at the door tomorrow morning if I were you.

    hansderhund send me cookies please
    Don't understand why you would want a chest pocket on the inside of your shirt but eBay completed listing seems to suggest that people are in to it. :happy:

    Good day for coats today!

    What I brought home (all available)

    Super recent BB single breasted trench, tan size L
    Also super recent BB single breasted trench, tan size XL


    My favorite catch though was...

    Vintage USN issue Pembroke winter peacoat, navy blue in size 38R. I'd say this thing is built like a tank, but I'd be lying. I'm pretty sure it INSPIRED THE TANK. When I first picked this up I honestly thought there must be strike plates in it or something. That's how thickly it's constructed.

    What I left behind
    At least three brooks brothers suits, including one by loro piana.
    A hilariously fake YSL tie (Had a chinese tag still attached, laughably obvious polyester, dumb pattern, and read "Yves Saint Laurent Poul Hommb") [​IMG]

    A Zegna orphaned jacket in 48R

    A few camel hair coats

    An interesting wool/cashmere blazer, made in England an absurdly long time ago by a company I've already forgotten the name of

    A few ben sherman and ted baker shirts

    Orphaned burberry custom (custom... not prorsum... who the hell paid 4000 dollars for that) suit jacket in 38r with ludicrously colored pinstripes

    Lots of old school hickey freemans

    moar


    Pics soon :)
