I managed to find an Invertere raincoat/tweed overcoat today, paying the princely sum of £4.00 It's a green gaberdine raincoat with a fully reversible dogtooth check tweed liner. I'll post some pics when I get round to it
Thanks guys.I knew it was nothing too spectacular but it only cost £6
Help needed with this one guys please. A pure camel hair sports coat in herringbone weave, no brand name inside the coat other than the mill that wove the fabric. Maker's label Fabric label Any help greatly appreciated
One for you cyclistas, I'll post pics tomorrow. Found what appears to be a 1976 vintage Gitane Campagnolo Team jersey today. The reason I believe it is not a modern retro is the material, it's woven in a 70% acrylic / 30% wool fabric manufactured by Rhone-Poulenc Textiles, trade name "Crylor".

If you're looking for another sports coat by Nicola Blasi, I think I can lay my hands on a couple. Mostly DB with the odd SB in the mix but all of them in noble fabrics (silk, Cashmere etc)Here's a silk tuxedo jacket I have
4 pairs of socks always works for me.I was once told to put on clean socks every day, by the end of the week I couldn't get my shoes over them
It was always my belief that it referred to RTW suits: so a 40" chest, drop 6 would have trousers with a 34" waistHow many coats or blazers (as opposed to orphan suit jackets), from the same manufacturer, in similar style, have you found with a different drop?
