Five pocket squares for $13.42.

Kohl's - good sales, bad spelling. Neckware? Really? 

(Nevermind the fact that pocket squares don't go around one's neck.)

Today at the Thrift

John Ashford: Macy's junky house-brand
Givenchy: Legendary Parisian fashion house

Two ties of different worlds but both perfect for summer.

Four years ago, today, a house fire destroyed practically everything I've ever owned and loved - my clothes, books, artwork and poetry, toys and stuffed animals from childhood - ALMOST everything. What wasn't destroyed was my memory of all those things and more. When you have a mind full of memories, of that warming nostalgia, you need not mourn the loss of material things. Four years later I choose to celebrate what I once owned and the experiences of those things only in passing. Now and forever I live to celebrate each moment that has coming along since - starting over in a new house that has become a true home not through tangible things, instead from times I share with family and friends.

Today at the Thrift - Great Dane

This tag belongs to an excellent topcoat I picked up today. Can anybody tell me about Great Dane Cosmopolitan Mfg. Co.? I got nothin'.

If I meet you and you're wearing this shirt, I will punch you.

Today at the Thrift - Borrelli

Sometimes, even what seems the greatest thrift shop discovery must be passed upon. Today I found this brilliantly made Borrelli shirt, freshly laundered yet beyond repair. So heavily starched and pressed, creases in the collar and runs in the rest of the cloth left the shirt unwearable. Maybe next time.
