    Gah, that stupid site waited until I was ready to check out before telling me it isn't shipping shoe trees, or any shoe care products, international. Next time I pass on JAB, it'll be with extreme prejudice.

    PS Wes those mountie cufflinks look awesome! But they also kind of look like they'd weigh a ton.

    If you're gonna be doing any more roadtrips through my area I can proxy for you and hand them off.

    I wore that Duchamp London tie from you yesterday. It's a favorite. [​IMG]

    Very Recent J Crew Urban Slim Broken In Chino. 30 x 32. From Fall 2011. There's a laundry mark on the knee, see last pic. Didn't see it in store, generally speaking it is hard to see.. Will give away at cost and shipping if someone wants a nice pair of beaters.

    Mint Polo linen/cotton sweater. Great summer sweater - 71% linen, 29% pima cotton. Marked XL. Color is slightly less vibrant than in pictures, but not much. I would describe the color as "brick" or maybe even "blaze."

    OK. Someone posted a Hermes tie a while back with a closeup of the loop, which made me look back at the Hermes I picked up a bit ago because I don't remember seeing a loop. The consensus on my tie is that it's real, but just to make sure ....

    They are pretty sweet in the full color. Surprisingly not that heavy at all.

    I don't know why it looks dirty in this pic, it's not dirty. I guess it's the light.

    And a super terrible suit- EU 50R 33W 31I 1.5cuff

    Can't see the loop but I'm still almost certain it's real.

    I wish all of my snags were in tiny sizes, as you seem to be interested in buying every last 14.5 collar shirt and 36R suit ever made. Surely you aren't wearing a suit and tie every day?
