    Nice fit and gorgeous tie, but I would not wear the watch with that.

    Hah! I wish I could find decent watches. The best thing I've ever found is a Hamilton for LL Bean, which is a good watch, but still far too casual to wear with that. I'm also a bit of a watch fanatic, so it'd be tough to get any watch out of my clutches...

    Owch!!


    Great finds there, Andro! That W&G is really cool - especially with the patch. Surprised it lasted till half off day! That would have been snatched in a New York minute around these parts. Hope you can get the stains out at least!

    So I found this NIB today:

    I wish... I did do a favor for a friend and pick up this new beauty for him since he had to go out of town and they were running a sale this weekend. I got the chance to audition some fantastic speakers. If anyone has $5k and wants the best value in speakers, get the Magnepan 3.7. They are fucking FANTASTIC!

    Anyway, this took me 3.5 hours out of my way into otherwise shitty thrifting territory. Passed on an Oxxford orphan and D&G shirt, picked up this:

    I did stop at a TJ Maxx and picked these up. Offering them here before they go on B&S for more tomorrow night. They won't be thrift prices, but will be near 75% off retail.

    Yes, those are sweet. I'm still waiting for my Boadstreets from AE. When I went to lace them up for the first time a few weeks ago, found that a couple metal eyelets were missing on the inside, so I sent them back for exchange. Perhaps I am picky, but when I pay full price, I expect zero flaws.

    Not enough info on the Diesel jeans to make an educated decision I'm afraid. Diesel is probably one of the most knocked-off makes available and their recentish label-change seems to make counterfeiting even easier. Some models are very desirable, others aren't worth making into washcloths.

    If you need more help, head over to Authentic Forum where they have a wealth of information and clued-up peeps who will authnticate.
