Those 38R polos went high! I jumped out at 200 on the navy, but congrats to the winner, likely someone else with the matching pants already...
Edit: Whoops, already listed.
The "deadbolt" I was feeling turned out to be another latch that opens when the lock is twisted to the correct position - it's a cool mechanism.
Slightly disappointing update: No Dior dresses in the trunk, but it's gorgeous inside. Hopefully the dresses are getting worn and appreciated somewhere.
I am a lowly intern who just happened to know a bit more about Hermes than the rest of the crew, so the real appraisal will be going to a specialist, I'm sure.
General update because I'm a bit overwhelmed by PMs, offers, and such and I should have been clearer in my post: The trunk was not thrifted. I'm working for an estate that owns it and I found it today buried in a garage. I posted it because I knew you'd all enjoy seeing it, especially if the contents end up being clothing, too, and I'll post updates (if the estate's okay with that) for the sake of it being cool as hell.
Yeah, I'm working for the estate and posted it here because I knew you would all be interested and enjoy seeing it. Sorry if I didn't make it clear enough that it wasn't thrifted, but I'll post more about what's inside for the sake of interest if the estate's okay with it.
Pulled this out of the garage on an estate I'm helping to appraise. I've worked out through context that they were bought in the early 30s and used for frequent trips between Paris and New York by sea. I got the lock opened today (after some idiot heir connected to the estate tried to pry it open), but it feels like a hidden deadbolt is keeping it shut. The trunk was labeled 'Dior dresses' so we're rather excited to get it open. Oldest Hermes (freres era) thing I've...
I'm a sucker for florals, and this strikes me as both tasteful and fun to wear. The one item I was the most surprised didn't sell out. I've been lusting after these for months - gorgeous take on a familiar shape. Grey stripes are generally underrated. Easily one of the prettiest fabrics I've seen.
My linen coat arrived, and while I will post something a bit more substantial with better pictures after alterations, I thought I would share some quick pictures. The construction, fabric, and buttons are all amazing. Only issue is that the top button of the 3-roll-2 was somehow missing (buttonhole in place,) but that's easily fixed and I imagine it's a communication issue about what I wanted with the lapel. They hit all my weird pocket requests on the inside. In terms...
