Bought a few eBay items and have a few more in my scope. I should receive sometime next week and will post accordingly. Hopefully I will be able to cross a few items off the every growing Want List. On the way for now are a couple of dead stock trousers in a glen plaid and a window pane check.
Also on the way is a vintage, horizontal striped, square ended tie.
Also coming along, green vintage turtleneck.

UPDATE- Have worn all of these since buying them and have very impressed. Colors stayed vibrant after washing, they feel great and held up well (in more than one sense if you catch my drift) I do believe I would go back and get more, even in solids, just due to the fit of them.

There's not going to be a test, but there is something to be said about taking notes. Previously I showed a mohair cardigan I got purely off an idea I had one night. While I was laying in bed I thought of this combo and how I liked it, knowing that if I continued to lie there and fall asleep, i probably would have forgotten about it by morning. So, I got out of bed and into my office, and wrote the idea down. If you like me, you forget things from time to time, and that's why I am going to stress the importance of notes for your sartorial needs. I will see combinations of colors, styles, and materials all the time and sometimes make up something in my mind because of what I saw or what I thought I saw. Now, thanks to the technology of smart phones, a lot of phones these days come equiped with some sort of notes function, so it's not as hard as you might think. Every now and again I "empty" my phone notes and transfer them to my desk to a more permanent location so I can start sourcing any items I might need. I have done this recently and found that I had a lot more ideas in there than I had recalled. So now that I have these notes out, it's time to start looking.

It's definitely that time of the year, the time for me to by my annual pair of shorts. The weather is getting warmer and the call for cool weather clothing is creeping up. About this time every year I get around to buying a pair of shorts for the summer when it's hot and I am lounging around the house. I missed the boat on some linen Bermudas that BR did last year, but I am not deterred. Defiantly going to be of the solid color, Bermuda variety, in a hopefully linen or thin cotton cloth. I know that this site is pretty much geared towards a certain amount of formality in clothing, but I have to stress that wearing shorts does not open the floodgates into sloppy appearance. A nice pair of shorts, short sleeved shirt with a straight hem, and a nice pair of slip-ons, and you'll be the best dressed man beating the heat this summer. As soon as I find a suitable pair, I'll post and review them here.

I need more shoes....I really do. I have been eyeing these for a bit but i'm torn. I like the leather and the style, but the soles aren't leather...and that's bothering me. They are currently on sale and I am seriously considering them...am I crazy or do they look as sharp as I think?
