    GMMcL: WOW! Talk about a haul! Well done, my friend!



    I splurged on two pairs of Sugar Canes last month while in Japan and they are by far one of my favorite purchases. Seriously, they blow any other pair of jeans I've owned out of the water in terms of feel, fit and construction. Love the cut of the 1947 Version 2 (2009 model, slimmer cut) and the Hawaii model is :slayer: . My entry into denim was a pair of raw, selvedge RRLs I got from Marshalls years ago. Still have them too. If you need to get into raw denim on the cheap, I suggest an eBay pair of RRLs.


    That's a good price for Jean Shop! I'd advise anyone in the market for some nice jeans to look into this if they are your size.

    Un.Fucking. Believable. Jacket.


    I also spied these on a cart that was coming out (who knew the whole waiting for a cart/rack thing applied to Marshall's too?
    [​IMG]
    Purple label thick as hell skeety tie, and a mf'ing black label woven silk tie. They had a few of each, I think asking $50 for the purple and $40 for the black. Hmm maybe it was the other way around. Underneath there were various RL branded beanies, they had a sick denim & supply one not shown for $20, but I just couldn't drive myself to get it. Speaking of driving, then I found out my car battery was dead.[​IMG]

    Horse ace, you're a lawyer, correct? You can talk your way out of any situation, but that doesn't make you right.

    All I'm sayin' is that I wouldn't mind getting a cup of coffee and having a conversation about spalla camicia with the Woost.

    Ah, you got on that train, too? I picked up 5+ pairs of RRL jeans at marshalls and tjmaxx a few years ago for like $35/pair. It was insane. More recently from Marshall's I picked up a pair of Rag & Bone selvage from their made in USA stuff. I love those, but I'm currently too chubby to fit in them.

    The Jean Shops were the regular cut. They had one 32 (must be vanity sized because they were too big for me), but most were in the 34-38 range. A few weren't selvage, though.

    not to interrupt the wonderful debate going on here but I need feedback on this asap as it pertains to something that is due in the morning (goodness gracious am I so dependent on this thread that I go to it for advice on homework [​IMG]) let me put it this way if you were in a goodwill and were forced had to buy artwork that is some way represents religion in a modern sense and these were the only two there and you choose which one to buy on the backing alone (black or white) which one would it be?

    Well the exposure is different in those pics but I'd say white. Tonal range just pops better, doesn't (to the viewer's eye) appear to be as contrasty when presented on the white background.

    I would go with the one with the black background. It feels more oppressive.

    Goddamn! Those things are like $600 a pop!

    Gentlemen...

    It was the glitter sale this weekend. In classic Somethingsfishy style, I've done it big. BRB sacrificing a cashmere goat to the thrift gods.


    Not availible:
    Loro Piana (not loro piana for________, Loro Piana) trousers. Got home and found out there was a stain on them :( but it's barely visible, so one of my friends (who they fit) was more than happy to wear them. Good to know that they aren't going to waste.

    Barneys NY cashmere sweater in white, pretty sure it is brand new. Its the first sweater I've ever had that fits me! Plus I can tell the sweater is decent quality, unlike these J-Crew and BR ones I'm used to seeing half-dead. The actual weave of the wool is MUCH denser on this thing. I love it :)


    Left behind:
    Lots of stuff. Goodwill jacked up their prices really hard because they were selling their best stuff, and some of it they got right. But I wasn't going to give them 130 dollars, even for a BB made in italy suit.
    Stained Borrelli tie :(
    Ferragamo A-grade balmorals, NWT. They were a really huge size (like 13.5) and goodwill wanted 160 I think. Fuckkk its a goodwill for christs sake!

    Now to the really cool stuff. ALL AVAILABLE.

    Canali suit jacket in 54 (42) L. Found it with the pants, but they were dead. Someone tried to press them and failed miserably- burnt them at the knee :/ The jacket itself is literally perfect though :)



    [​IMG]

    Vintage USN coat by Pembroke, fits about a size M- marked 37R for some weird reason. Hilariously thick and strong fabric. It literally weighs about ten pounds.

    [​IMG]

    BB coat in L that's more or less NWOT

    Unbelievably gorgeous Canali (who makes them?) shoes in 12D. Pictures don't even come CLOSE. So pretty that the moment I find a pair in my size on ebay I'm kopping them for me. Shout out to the SF member (I'm sure you were!) who complimented them in my cart!

    Grabbed a few things at lunch, nothing like what I've seen the past couple of days though!

    Profuomo tie. Really it's just a generic type of made in Italy tie that I pass on a regular basis, but this one is well-made, a maroon/burgundy color and features a golf print. I know there are golfers here or I thought maybe someone's boss golfs. I don't know, I will send it to you cheap (cost + shipping).


    [​IMG]

    Next is a really thick tie and the back stitching is cool. Pal Zileri Sartoriale. It's a solid brown, not sure if anyone here is a UPS driver :) To be fair, UPS drivers don't wear ties here I don't think. Available (cost + shipping).

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    An uglyish Zegna blue/off-white check. It's close enough to the Bavarian check that I thought German eBayers would like it. Therefore, not available.

    [​IMG]

    Finally, saw these from a distance. Great looking fall color Incotex trousers. I think the photos are fairly accurate with a mustardy/golden color. Probably not available.
