It can be done by machine or by hand, so it's not generally a sign of quality - the fact the buttonhole is machine-sewn suggests to me the garment is entirely machine-made. One of the tell-tale signs of machine pick-stitching is that the thread running between the pick...
Hermes Sac a Despoo from 2002 with dustbag and original purchase reciept, $2000 BIN which seems reasonable:
Bump 04/11 - price drop on Bamford & Sons jacket, added T&A cashmere.
Just a quick and dirty shot of a couple of pairs of shoes I've thrifted recently and posted here - unlined Brooks Brothers for Alden cordovan #8 loafers, and Crockett & Jones for Polo Ralph Lauren loafers:

Two nice spring jackets and a sweater here: 1. Bamford & Sons heavyweight linen jacket, tagged Small. Made in Italy with some great touches - horn buttons on a snapring attachment so you can switch them out, hand-stitching around the hem of the jacket and cuffs, and great bellows pockets. In excellent condition, only one small pen mark on the right sleeve (pictured). $150 > $140 > $130 shipped Pit to pit 21" Waist 20" Sleeve 25.5" Shoulders 18" Length 30.5"...
- 1978 Douglas Hayward tweed suit with unpadded shoulders - Four Souster & Hicks semi-bespoke suits in immaculate condition - Dege & Skinner bespoke suit - C&J for PRL boat-shoe style loafers - Harvie & Hudson velvet embroidered slippers And best of all - A professional shop steamer
Very low BIN for a nice vintage Dunhill briefcase (note the loose seam to the front compartment). After the event, but someone got a deal on this refurbished Hermes briefcase.
Two pairs of shoes that I don't wear, I'll add a couple more pairs later in the week: 1. Alden 990 plain toe blucher in the classic #8 shell - these have a deserved reputation as a wardrobe staple and perhaps the most popular Alden model. US size 10.5 C/E. These have been topied from new and had steel toe taps installed, though I lost one recently. Because of this they have very little wear on the soles. The uppers are also in good shape, as you'd expect from shell,...

Two things to be aware of: - They're a 'Made in Italy' line for Church's and are probably blake stitched. - Only a croc apron, not the whole shoe.
