    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.

    ^^ I come across Trussini a lot on my rounds and I am sure that they are not the house brand for Boyd's, however, this is probably the store where they are most stocked. Trussini makes fantastic pieces and are often compared to Caruso and Canali. They have almost no flip value whatsoever with the exception of selling a cashmere piece for not a sum which you would waste your time. Great for personal use, not so much for anything else.

    I haven't been able to post in a while but I am out of town and found some post worthy items. Post on x-mas in addition to my SS gift. Super excited by that! Happy Holidays all!

    I used Alden's Restoration service for a pair of their cordovan saddle oxfords I inherited from my grandfather. They resoled and re-lasted them, plus gave me new shoe trees, bags, and a great polish. I think I paid $150.

    I have a hard time finding jackets, so I settled for this one. Would you guys wear this pattern?

    I found a Rugby RL rugby for myself, and a bunch of great outdoor gear by Patagonia, NWT Arc Teryx women's running jacket, OR, Mountain Hardware, Ibex, REI and Sierra Designs stuff for ebay or store credit at my local store that sells used stuff.

    Definitely, brown herringbone is a classic fall/winter pattern and the windowpane helps set it apart. Nice finds.

    PM sent on the Canali.

    I forgot to mention that I saw a North Face down mummy bag for $40 or $50. There was no indication as to what fill or model it was, but if anyone needs a bag, I can go back tomorrow. It was blue, regular length.

    Also found these club monaco 32x32 pants. I really want to keep them. How much can the waist of pants be taken in?

    +3 for me on the herringbone. Very versatile and classic. Dress it up and dress it down (with denim).

    Thanks, man!

    So sort of like a Mr. Sid in Boston -- not quite as stratospheric as Louis, Boston but if I find Mr. Sid house brand stuff I'd give it two hard looks before passing.

    Was hoping you'd see my post but I am lucky to read 1/3 of what goes on here so I had no expectations. Happy Holidays.

    I've found some DB stuff that's worked its way into the rotation and I get lots of compliments when I do it right. I also get similar comments to yours ("I haven't worn or seen anyone in a DB since [insert something here in the range of 1985-90], but that looks good on you"). The one that gets the most "looking good today!" is that damn Polo linen DB blazer with the "guaranteed to wrinkle" tag on the inside I poasted earlier this year...

    ...that doesn't mean they're coming back in fashion or anything. Let's not go that far. But rather...you can pull off the style if you combo-ize intelligently and double check Flusser & Roetzel's (and DigMeNow's) thoughts.

    Found a few things, no pics yet.

    VTG Big E Levi's jacket...probably mid 60s. Tag is faded, but fits near a 38
    Ancient J. Riggins for Sears Mackinaw cruiser-style jacket. The lining has seen better days, but one of the nicer pieces of vintage outerwear I've picked up. No size tag, but again fits like a 38
    Two pairs of Zanella Bennett, one of which is LP Super 130s. 31 x 32
    Ridiculous Brooks Brothers FU unlined striped seersucker sport coat. 40R
    VTG Issey Miyake women's shirt. Medium

    Oh, and here's a SW&D thrift fit. Flame on. Admittedly, it is a bad photo.

    [​IMG]


    Cooper down bomber (from rayxlui)
    Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme vest (thrifted)
    Issey Miyake Men hidden placket button down shirt (thrifted)
    Helmut Lang waxed denim (from mainy)
    Buttero side zip suede boots (eBay)

    I wear my white-waxed Naked and Famous jeans and blue suede boots with gum soles...about as douchey as I'm willing to go for Goodwill.

    The one time I bumped into Dallas's preeminent man of used cloths, he looked like a homeless person. :D

    First off, I wanted to give BIG THANKS to Nataku for the shirt. It fits perfectly and looks great, and it's just what I needed. Until I can repay the favour, I'm putting a curse on every Minnesota flipper for ya.

    Love the top, love the bottom (with a bit less cuff) but together they seem incongruous. Some slacks would have made this fit great.

    Yes - send directly to me.

    So tempted to feed the troll....
