    Best of luck in your venture DM. No reason you can't combine your passions for math and #menswear. If you're going through withdrawal, you're welcome to finish up my econometrics problem set for me :D

    Grabbed this in an attempt to mitigate my anger over ripped Brioni/Gucci ties thinking it was grenadine. After creeping the Hober site, seems I'm wrong. Confirmation? It's Bullock and Jones made in England if that's relevant.

    Need some advice.

    Found a Vintage Brooks Brothers double breasted coat in Navy, Wool/Cashmere blend.

    Problem?
    a noticeable moth hole on the back. Should I have picked it up anyway? (Flipping-wise of course)

    It was this exact one, made in England....

    I pretty much look for reasons to leave stuff at stores now almost no mater what it is - moth holes, stains, rips, missing buttons,etc. Overcoats are pretty hard to flip and BB are a dime a dozen so I'd say good pass.

    Not a grenadine, sorry.

    This is a grenadine "grossa" (large) weave

    And a "fina" (small) weave

    I don't know, but there is a small Orvis shop in town I have been meaning to check out. I am sure there are mostly fishing supplies there, but maybe they have a few clothing articles to check out too.


    There is this though

    Best of luck to you, this sounds like a level-headed plan if you manage to stick to it. Being at a very competitive program can really take it out of you, stress-wise and money-wise. Been there, man. Slowing down a bit sounds like a reasonable solution if you keep course. As others have said, college isn't for everyone, but if it is for you, it is worth it. Props to you for finding your own path.

    A few quick questions-

    who made Brooks Brothers Made In Italy sportcoats in 2004? The one I just got has a plain blue label that says "Brooks Brothers" and then "Established 1818" on the bottom.

    Who made Made in Italy boots for J. Crew?

    orvis price is pretty on par with bb or midline stuff but they sometimes make super high cost items like their leather jackets and they make nice watches that you can snipe really cheap on the bay' and it is just looking at the catalogues and wishing I lived in new england
