    It's really pretty cool. Noticed it the other night. Makes getting to messages much easier. Though getting back to the main menu is a little balky. And what's that icon on the top left, and what do all those numbers mean? Clicking it doesn't do anything on my phone.

    Forgot to brag about some sweet, sweet vintage early 1960s tonic narrow straight ties, straight out of the Rat Pack. And today I picked up some Canali trou (gray, flat front, size 40, crisp and minty) and a couple of summery woven silk ties.

    Thanks for the tip! Actually found a really nice pocket square, so I went to order it and if I try to use a US address, I can't use my credit card's Austrian billing. Change the shipping to Austria and the price goes from $49 with free shipping to €77 :fu:

    That's a beaut! Sartoriale is their highest line, right?

    Had to fight temptation this afternoon at lunch. Popped by my two local Marshall's and found a ton of stuff, including:

    Ballantyne Limited cashmere shawl neck cardigan, L ($120)
    Moncler Gamme Bleu bomber jacket, M ($499)
    75% Angora/25% virgin PRL Gleen Plaid SC, 44 ($399)
    RLBL coffee suede blouson, M/L ($1,000)
    E Zegna 50/50 wool/cash overcoat, 42 ($1,000)
    Brioni 100% cash navy blazer, 50 ($1,200)

    Decent prices but nothing Earth shattering. Still, encouraging to see another wave of nice stuff hitting for the holidays. The majority of the original retail tags looked to come from Barney's and Wilkes.

    Not-thrift fit - wore a variation of this today
    TOJ jacket... we can pretend it's thrifted too if that's your thing

    Well I'm off to visit my friend in another city, so hopefully I can hit some thrift stores at another part of British Columbia. In the mean time, in the spirit of sharing, I give you my thrift fit pic
    [​IMG]

    Suit is my first thrift item, probably Indochino
    Blue OCBD from Faconnable
    Tie from Dunhill

    I'm also wearing a pair of thrifted suspenders as well.

    Anyone here a Barbour expert? Need some in-store assistance. Do these tags look legit?[​IMG]

    The interior lining- is it supposed to be soft? This isn't as soft as I'd expect,
    Though it looks like there might be a removable liner that's missing. Help!

    Yes. And I've handled one and they're amazing. Definitely a cut above their (already excellent) mainline/grupo forall stuff.

    barbour looks legit to me, but I'm not an expert. I would take a chance if it were me.

    Also, how much do you love the mobile site right now? :D

    It's real. Grab it if the price is right. I think they sold a vest or something separately that zipped into some models of their jackets.

    Totally just left it because I didn't think it felt right. It was..... $25. They were closing, I was waiting to hear, they wouldn't hold it. So it's currently sort of hidden.
