    Hopefully, no one is that bored.


    At University, I worked in a charity shop were we were required to remove hangers and bag everything - we were expected to catch shoplifters hiding things in pockets and bags.

    Don't want to add to the argument too much here, but Barrel and I were at a GW yesterday and one of the girls working there (she could not have been older than 20) had a velcro cast on her wrist because she got carpal tunnel's from sifting and putting away all of the clothes. Feels bad man.

    So I did one of those things where I found something insanely cool yesterday (at least in my mind) that fit me like a glove but was a little too pricy. As soon as I got home, I was kicking myself for not grabbing it. I actually had a dream about it last night, yes I had a dream about a piece of thrift clothing (not the first one) and yes i have a fucking problem. Anyhoo, I went back in today with the mindset that it would not be there, but, low and behold, it's still hanging on the wall when I walk in. Needless to say, I snatched that shit up with the quickness. Now, I know this kind of stuff might not be for everyone but this is a total grail find for me. It fit's like is was made to order for myself.....40 or so years ago. :D Perfect soft shoulder, sleeves at just the right length, nipped waist and hits right at the knee. Oh yea, it's a mint condition,100% cashmere, vintage, Hickey Freeman topcoat. :slayer: :slayer: :slayer: :slayer: And by "pricy" I mean I could have had a sweet brand new Gap button down for what this cost. :nodding:

    Also, I don't know why i look pissed off in all my fit pics, I'm really a nice guy and generally in a great mood. :happy:

    This thing is tits. I guess my mannequin must be a 42 because it fits perfectly. Really well put together. And oh. so. available.

    First of all, that coat is as awesome as Natalia Velez. Secondly, you look like you're at 9/10 on the Super-Pissed-Off-O-Meter. We still have man-crushes on your though.

    I literally just sold one of those to a fellow member - those HF cashmere topcoats are indeed the tits. Enjoy that man, they don't make 'em like that anymore.

    Hey Guys!

    It's been a long while (too long a while, IMO) since I've been able to get in on the action here. Either way, lots of cool stuff has happened re: my Etsy shop during October. I wanted to give a shout out and thanks to Vox Sartoria for linking to a BB no. 1 sack suit back on the 10th AND another shout out and big thanks to the guys over at PutThisOn for including a few items from my shop in an "eBay Roundup" last week as well as another mention this past weekend.

    And finally... here's some of my October highlights. UNAVAILABLE.

    1. Borrelli Napoli "ROYAL COLLECTION" 50% cotton / 50% linen dress shirt 16 1/2 | 42. Made in Italy.
