INSANE Burberry Double Breasted Navy Blazer in an extra-large herringbone pattern. Crispy Wool/Poly blend and neat buttons. Slim 36 Short!
Wow, that fabric on that Geoffrey Beene looks great just from the photos. Here's a lovely summer raw silk tie; it explains itself.
Custom-cut Brooks Brothers from 1972. Lapels are still done in a reasonable width. The most notable aspect is the heavenly cloth, this jacket is done in a hearty calvary twill! 3/2 roll, sack, etc... 42 Short. Where's the HSM guy? This jacket is done in an incredible wool that feels and looks just like raw silk. Dig that action back! 46 Regular
Not too vintage, but still a great summer piece. Very lightweight cotton blend, almost feels like madras. Mother-of-pearl buttons and Made in the USA! 40 Long.
70's-era Pale Red Chambray pants courtesy of Jos A Bank back when they crafted some fine wares. Dig the pre-SF 2" cuff! 39" waist with plenty of room to take out.
Spoo - every piece you post is worthy of a requote. The button stance is remarkably low on those 50's-era Savile Row offerings! Here's a neat jacket for warmer weather. Made in the USA by Sears, full canvassed and natural shoulder. Seems to be a silk blend of some sort, evidenced by the nubiness. Color is even better in person, last picture depicts it most accurately. Like everything for the past month, it's a 40 S.
Spoo - everything in your post is incredible. Here's a true "Gun Club Check" by Dunn & Co of jolly olde England. It's done in a very typical Anglo-cut and is even more beautiful in person! It's probably 60's/70's though part of its lure is its timeless cut and styling. 40 Short.
That Jos A Bank Harris Tweed is fantastic. Timeless cut, their old offerings were just as good as Brooks Brothers. I've seen the red tag as early as the 1970's, going until the 90's. Here's an eye-catching suit. The pattern says 70's, but the lapels and cut are more conservative. All wool, Made in the USA.
^ If that's you in the photo I hope that you're keeping the jacket. It fits wonderfully and has an incredible history! Dig these NOS 60's-era Irish Linen and Rayon blend Pants. An unmatched orange color that's not too orange, with a very tapered leg (8.25") considering the waist (adjustable 38-40.")
That HSM archive is incredible, a testament to centuries of menswear. Please do share with us as you go about your journey! Here's a real gem - a 60's-era GANT Hugger with all of the Ivy details and unlined collar. I wish that they'd make a shirt like this today...
