    Hmmmmm . . . nobody's started a March acquisitions thread! Well, I might as well take the initiative here . . . .

    I know flannel season is just about over, but after having seen Gamma and LeeLo's Instagrams, where they had several pictures of vintage, made-in-USA flannel shirts they own, I couldn't help but retire the flannel shirts in my closet and replace them with USA-made ones, courtesy of eBay:

    ^^Nice haul, Dave! You are certainly well set for next Fall and Winter season(s). I suspect you will greatly enjoy your new flannels. ;)

    Whoa, that is a seriously nice haul. Well done! Are those tassels shell or calf?

    I’m not a longwing fan personally, but I have to admit those are beautiful. I own the Gucci bits and the tassels, and actually just picked up a pair of Tretorns myself...

    I guess I’m trying to say, I like your style.

    Goodness. How nice. ('cept maybe the Tretorns, big Chucks fan here). Like the idea of the thin foam packing pad under the horsebit. Don't loose that. I don't have any bit loafers, but made from index card stock tiny tubes to go around the tassels of tassel'd slip-ons, for storage. They often splay in use.

    I never even considered worrying about splay of the tassels on my tassel loafers. Now I do. Thanks.

    And proving what an ecumenical lot we really are, I actually go out of my way to splay mine a bit...

    Isn't diversity grand?

    I volunteer to lead the intervention - and safeguard any and all contra-indicated items of a size 10D/E persuasion...

    Those Alden longwings are simply stunning!

    It isn't so much the splay as the crinkled-up folded-over sprig on the ends that gets hammered in when I toss them across the floor after stumbling home juiced after an all-night twist party. I should add that was while in school, not now. The phrase twist party probably made the cronology unnecessary. (Tod, that was before Soft Sell)
    Splay it again, Sam.
