First Sulka item I’ve ever thrifted. I’ve seen Sulka at thrifts before, but every item was trashed. This is in decent shape, though I’m going to send it to Tiecrafters for some cleaning.

My tie collection is so big that I’ve adopted a “one in, one out” policy, but this is a staple tie that fills a hole. In fact, I was about to buy a navy pindot tie the other day for $95, but this acquisition means I just saved $94.

In searching around for images of polo coats, I stumbled upon a Tumblr dedicated to just that. It’s titled, simply, Polo Coat. If you want to gaze at more amazing photos of this beautiful piece of outerwear, here’s a great collection of them. 

I’ve wanted a polo coat for years. How did I miss this auction?

Monday night spent shoe polishing. I picked up these Brooks English shoes by Cheaney a week ago at a local thrift for $12. They are the first shoes I’ve thrifted and kept for myself. The leather is in great shape, but needed some love, as can be seen on the left. I followed Ron Rider’s guide, but adapted it to calf leather. I found the color a tad light for my taste, so I went up a shade darker in Saphir cream and wax. I’d say they came out pretty well.

I want this so badly. I was born too late to afford Arnys.

Spend $228 on shitty Chinese wool/poly pants or $269 on made in NYC tweeds with considerable hand stitching? Is $40 make or break for anyone?

I have a rule about not spending more than $200 on pants. In fact, with precise eBay searches and frequent stalking I rarely spend that much, but I might have to bend that rule for these newly launched Panta trousers. They clock in around $100 less than previous seasons and with some eBay bucks rolling in they’ve moved up on my kop list.
