    Extra points if you couple it with a duck tie.

    Wow, Brioni P.J.'s. Are you going to go back and look for the pants?

    Noob - I like it right until the ankles. The selvedge(?) on those pants reminds me of those knock-off Adidas stripe track pants I wore in elementary school, and not a fan of the shoes.

    Can't hate on the home-made shoes.

    I respect the effort and the fact that he didn't pay the exorbitant MMM price for them, but I'm no fan of the originals as well.

    If those pants didn't have the selvedge (or whatever that is), I'd say wear them rolled up with black bucks. But then he'd be showing his ankles and SW&D would chase him like Frankenstein's monster.

    Can anyone here (or their SOs) fit a belt with a 29" to middle hole measurement and doesn't mind a discrete monogram? Brian?

    Thanks for the interest. I'll let some peeps know when there's more to talk about, maybe get a link going in my sig at some point too.

    There's a different thread for that. Search for "HOF labels and nail patterns"

    Maybe not worth a brag but I picked up a Hart Schaffner Marx suit that I'm looking to trade, It's roughly a 48 or 50 US. I haven't measured it yet but I can for anyone who's interested.

    Black Brooks Brothers Blazer with Loro Piana Super 120s size 39L (how old is this label?):

    Ties were the best part of the day
    Left - Kiton 7 fold - in less than perfect shape - small stain on the front, tag is a bit battered and there is some gunk on the back but it's a Kiton
    Middle - Silk/wool blend Etro mistakenly tagged by the (usually way overpriced) store as "vintage paisley tie". Don't know how they missed it but glad they did.
    Right - Polo handmade in Italy

    I love that sweater. I just bought one very similar from Land's End. As far as the label, not terribly old. You can still find clothing at the outlet as well as BB stores that feature that label.
