        I made a few nice eBay purchases lately. But my least exciting purchase was from Uniqlo


        I got this grey checked shirt:

        I bought these two ties off eBay. I enjoy ties that pop and I've been going crazy for anything polka dot.

          ALAN!!!!! Been too long sir....


          I ordered the Frank & Oak cord blazer in navy, for 40 bucks I figured it was worth a shot!


          Also got a couple things from the recent lands end sale for the fall (a couple of sweaters and such) Unfortunately none of the canvas sale stuff is to my liking. LE had a nice shawl collar cardigan in charcoal heather (something I cant seem to find a well fitting version of anywhere) but they only had medium and up. Ordered it but its too big I find it a bit ridiculous that I am 5'11 185 and wear a small in Lands End haha.


          Also ordered a couple CT shirts because I noticed too many of my shirts had button down collars.

            AE Fifth Avenues on Amazon for just under $200 shipped. Chocolate brown. Already wore them with navy pants and a purple CT shirt - looked great.


            Also, glad to have you back Alan.

                Just found a nice tan Brooks Brothers sport coat at Goodwill for 12 bucks. It's not my size (its a 42R) but I figured I could find someone who wanted it. I wasn't going to leave it in that God-forsaken place!

                  Merona Chambray shorts in Target for 6$ on clearance, and I splurged $30 for dark jeans from JCP line.

                  Macy's had a ton of Calvin Klein "X" slim ties on clearance for $9.99, so I picked two of those as well.

                    Finally got my AE Fifth Avenues. Beautiful shoes! Except they didn't fit length-wise. Sent them back in exchange for 1/2 size up pair. I hope I have better luck with that pair.

                      @Julio - what color did you get? I got a pair of Fifth avenues in walnut, loved them, but realized I'd get more wear/versatility out of a dark brown one so exchanged them. no regrets...kind of. AE walnut is a beautiful calfskin leather, no doubt.

                        Got 'em in black. If the new size works out, I'll consider the dark brown pair as well.


                        I'd rather the Harrisons, but I can't justify dropping that much on a pair of shoes right now.

                          Picked up three Gap Modern Oxford shirts http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...&pid=289760012 The great thing about Gap/BR is that they have tall sizes, that for my frame is not necessarily needed but very much desired, especially if I want my shirt to stay stucked throught the day. I liked this shirt some much that I picked up another two. The material is great, the fit as spot on (not not tight, not to baggy). The only negative was that I had to have the sleeves brought up, they were just a little too long but remember I ordered Tall. These are great for the office with chinos or jeans and on the weekends with shorts. Highly recommend.

                            Picked up the JCP oxford in white that I saw before Fearless Leader reviewed it (small hipster argument there), got it in large since 100% cotton and a bit of shrinkage, now it fits perfectly. Also got the chinos in gray. They also had a clearance section so I grabbed a couple of patterned slim-fit button downs for $5 each.

                              Found this tie on my lunch break:





                              I know it's not everybody's "thing", but I think I'll get a few good uses out of it when spring rolls around.

                                I actually have several things I would wear that with & if oyu got it at Marshalls I'm guessing it was less than $20 so i say win/win
