    Never heard of it before but the quality was definitely there. Glad I went with my gut. Model DVO-2u

    Haha, in the back of my mind I figured either you or ilikethelights got the Oxxford. Had a small moth hole or two on the sleeve but was otherwise in really nice shape. Tossed around the idea of buying it for awhile but ended up leaving it in the end.

    Those wool ties and the madras are gorgeous.

    Yeah it's a brand more for video/film peeps, so most of the world hasn't heard of it. Definitely an amazing find in my book. Wish I could think of something I needed it for!

    Spotted parked directly outside a local GW...they could have been shopping in another store but it would have been quite inconveniently parked (long walk, plenty of open spaces) if so. Baller was thriftin'.

    Funny as I saw a Ferrari FF pulling out of a parking spot at the GW the other day. Exahust note was pure music. At another there are regularly at least 5-7 new (ish) Mercedes, BMWs or Audis parked in the lot at any given time.

    Possibly, though this GW has a drive-up donation spot right out front. Oh, I like to believe that no one can resist the allure of a Goodwill on a weekday.
