    However I did pick up this gem for a whole 99 cents (tax included).

    Hart Schaffner & Marx Silver Trumpeter. Perfect fit too.


    Lucky bastard! I like. Where'd you find that?

    I did just this. They asked for the line numbers in the shoe and are going to send a tassel.


    Good deal. [​IMG]

    Nothing too spectacular at lunch:

    Barney's NY tie - $1.59
    Charles Tyrwhitt D/S - $3.99
    Lightly worn Hanover burgundy calf longwings - for those days when one is feeling "tradly" - $5.99

    Salvation army. They even threw in the hanger for free, haha. I also picked up a few PRL OCBD's for 99 cents each. I think I'll have them taken in though. They are a bit large on me and what's 15 bucks to make a 99 cent shirt fit perfectly? Still absolutely no luck in the shoe department...

    Forgive a newbie question: What is the difference between Burberry of London and Burberrys Prorsum? Are these 2 completely different companies?

    Prorsum is the more luxurious line. Most things made in Italy - different designer (I think). Burberry London is a bit of a mix of things - made all over the world from what I can remember - quality nowhere near Prorsum (except maybe the made in England trenches). I'm no expert though.

    Just returned, pretty victorious! (I think...)

    Two bespoke Fioravanti suits along with one sportcoat, bespoke ~44-46. The quality is unreal, especially thef fabrics, wish they were smaller.

    Royal Stetson medium grey felt fedora, size 7 with a grosgrain ribbon and a feather, near mint.

    Recent Southwick sportcoat, unsure how to describe the fabric but it is a 44R three button with natural horn buttons, single vented and darted.

    The best find though was a pair of chairs which were custom made for a high end store, Halle Bros Co. Will post pics as these are hard to describe but they are from 1950's by Heritage Henredon.

    Burberry London is the new mainline. Burberrys of London which has the word Prorsum in the flag on their logo is their old mainline. Burberry Prorsum is the high-end runway line.

    Did I blow it?

    I just passed on a Wilis&Geiger button down shirt for $5 because had a couple
    ink stains on the sleeves.

    Ive never seen one of these, but the cut was really really cool.

    are these available very often?
