    I was in the VV where I found the Italian jammies and carried around a minty, stupid cheap, burgundy PRL polo shirt in XS that I was going to send you but as I did my final "pre-flight" check for damage before heading to the register, I found a hole in the sleeve that looked like some sort of pin-based anti-theft device had been utilized at some point, rendering it unwearable for anything except changing oil in the car so I left it. Just to make your day complete. :embar:

    Nice. You and me both on the furniture. Fortunately I don't need to cut my rocks very often.

    Quick question about this. Is it viable or possible to get a small moth hole repaired on Vicuna?

    This summer has been pretty good to me but I'm feeling it start to drop off very quickly.
    :slayer: Congrats! Looks like an awesome place!
    Soak in an Oxiclean/white vinegar solution for a few days, then wash as normal. If it still remains apply Oxiclean power directly onto the yellowed area and drip water on top so it hardens. Let sit for 2 days and re-wash.
    I did get a good chuckle out of it, but the others are right. You can still make some decent money from those sold separately. Passed on a set of yellow and blue check Carroll & Co made in England pajamas. In my size. I'm starting to regret this one. I'm fine with a beat up t-shirt and athletic shorts for after hours but maybe I should step it up.... Otherwise it's been dry. Found a quarter lined navy blazer w/ MOP buttons by Bonobos. Nothing crazy. 40 L. Not really worth pics.

    Buuuuuttttt....... Watch out if you have mother of pearl buttons, The Treatment can be hell on them. Best to maybe soak just the collar in each of the solutions. And instead of the dry application Nat describes, I make up a paste - 1/2 water, 1/2 powder and apply, and leave at least for overnight.



    And congratulations ATLjon on the house!

    You'e right, this would actually work better. I need to start doing this now and ditch the eye-dropper method.

    I'm cleaning my basement out so, of course, I had to hit a VV to drop some donations off. :smarmy: (At least that's what I told my wife).

    I picked up a very cool vintage Pendleton "High Grade Western Wear" fuzzy wool/felt shirt with pearl snap buttons. Tagged Medium and Long but fits small like so many of these vintage shirts do. I'm hoping a fetching 98 lbs. hipster girl buys it.

    And in other news, it's time to get ready for back to school. My wife was cleaning out the kids' art drawer and this was lurking under the pads of paper and colouring books. We're hoping to put together 2 packs of pencil crayons from this mess.

    Oh, and today's find:

    Church custom grade.

    Since I'm moving, you get crappy pics of unpolished shoes lined with foot powder used to try to get out the stench of month balls. But it's a sweet find nonetheless.

    I could be wrong... But isn't their Abito privato line also very nice? Or is it lower than sartoriale?

    Congratulations, and if your wife is still coming here soon, I can point her to a spot that has wall to wall MCM furniture. Not a thrift store, but the prices aren't too shabby. :slayer:

    Ha. I had that Bonobos jacket in my hand yesterday and told myself I'd buy it if I found at least one other thing to buy in the store. Ended up being late meeting up with a friend so didnt get to look around much. I already have a ton of jackets and coats to put up for sale so I left it. Glad someone grabbed it and justified me almost buying it.

    Pretty cool Samuelsohn MTM jacket. Looks like an orphan but I'm pretty sure it's not.

    RLPL suit. It feels so nice to reunite an orphan with his pa(re)nts.

    Quoted because somehow a Vicuna coat from 1953 went under the radar...No idea where to source Vicuna thread to reweave it, but absolutely worth it. Edit: Was HSM ever top quality?
