Pick Up The Thread

Q: What do...
a 1980s dead stock Brooks Brothers point collar candy striped shirt....

...complete with matching 1980s vintage price tag from the good old real Filene's Basement, the one that was actually in the basement beneath Filene's department store in Boston,....

a 1930s vintage Borsalino brown fedora from a hat shop in Milan,...
a range of 8 wale corduroy trousers in excellent Fall colors (the pink pair is from Chipp),...
an unworn pair of black bluchers by Paraboot,....
an old canvas work shirt with snaps and a corduroy collar made in USA by L.L. Bean,....

an unusual chamois cloth "fun shirt" made in USA by Orvis of Manchester, Vermont,....

and, of course, ties all day,

have in common?

A: they're all available at the Affordable Wardrobe booth at the sixth semi-annual Top Shelf Flea Market, Sunday, 21 October, Noon till 5 pm, at the George Dilboy VFW, 371 Summer Street, Somerville, MA

c'mon, you knew I was gonna do a plug eventually, right? See (some of) you Sunday.

Well, I happen to wear a 16-34 in dress shirts, and I was going to show up anyway, so I'll see you Sunday...

Without a good plug, we'd be utterly at sea.
