Last night I found: - A blue and red striped boating blazer, a DB suit, and a 3-piece tuxedo, all bespoke, all from 1933 - A Loro Piana THICK cashmere scarf - A pair of spectator shoes - A pair of Kiton pants I was on my way home to take pics and post them here. ...then I woke up. Couldn't go back to sleep for a while because half my brain was so excited about the haul and the other half was mad that it was all a dream.
Well, all ties (except knits) are made from woven fabrics, so it should work. The challenge will be that printed silks are usually a finer, tighter, smoother weave, so it'll make it more difficult to get the needle in the right place.

That's called a fishtail back. Made exclusively for wearing with suspenders. You see it on a lot of old British suits and some recent ones, mostly Savile Row-type stuff.Who made it? Dibs if it's 40-42R.

You should try using a camera. I never get good pictures with my potato.
Mischka. They make jeans and stuff, but IIRC when it's come up here before, not terribly desirable. I could be wrong.
Those are amazing, D. What indicates 1931?
While there may be something sketchy going on, when I was there the store was offering to hold items behind the counter for any and all customers, while they shop. It may be standard practice, not preferential treatment.
What's up with the button stance on this one? Looks like it can't decide if it's single or double breasted. Did the previous owner move the buttons way over away from the jacket's edge for some reason?
