    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 keep looking for summer short sleeve stuff in basic [spoofont]ESSENTIAL[/spoofont] patterns and colors and was thrilled to find this Brioni Sport S/S seersuckery type shirt with [spoofont]LIP CHILLING[/spoofont] MOP buttons and a single pocket. I figured that even though it was a Medium, after trying it on over my shirt while standing at the shirt rack, I could live with it being just a bit big. Alas, when I tried it on at home, I was very disappointed.

    If you are on the Large side of Medium or even the Medium side of Large, this may be the billionaire Summer shirt for you. Cheap and available. Barely any discoloration at the collar at all (small spot inside the back of the neck).

    Lots of good stuff lately but nothing particulary bragworthy apart from these ties:

    And something for Mr. Spoo if he's interested:

    Teal blue button-down Ferrari shirt, relatively subtle as Ferrari shirts go. Missing the second button but the placket still has the spares.

    I've got more than a sneaking suspicion that jacket looks good on James Bond and no one else.

    Today: thrifted some sweet early, early 90's Armani unisex tortoise shell sunglasses from the mom's old bucket of glasses. Then, shortly afterward, a home-cooked meal.

    Cool aviators. Can anyone decipher the maker? Can't figure it out. Very well made though.

    ^^ Oh man, I thought that was just the model name and not the maker. Should have checked it anyway! I was trying to figure out whatever that fancy font text said.
    Wow! I think this is the third time this year CCP has surfaced on here. Don't recall seeing it at all on here prior to this year.

    Fit perfectly. From a consignment shop. Couldn't help myself.

    Balmain. Not Availiable.
