    Re: Why did you wear what you wore today..

    Wearing vintage GIT today but thinking of wearing this tomorrow.

    Do you find much of a difference between the vintage and new? I have a 2011 and 2015 bottle and they're both similar.

    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!

    Re: The Official Creed Green Irish Tweed thread!
