Outerwear, Jackets & Coats Marc Jacobs Black Astrakhan Wool Lined Leather Bomber - XL $680 This is, simply put, the ultimate leather bomber. The body is fully lined in incredibly soft astrakhan wool. It's extremely warm. This was a runway piece that retailed at $3500 and is in perfect condition. In other words, it's a steal. Astrakhan Lining - Wings + Horns Black Heavy Fleece Mackinaw - XL - $275 Great jacket from FW08, maybe the highlight of the outerwear they made for that collection. I have worn it fewer than 5 times after picking it up in December, it's too big now. Warm enough to deal with winter here in Vantown wihtout layering, with layering it's even toastier. W+H usually fits small, but this fits true to size in order to allow for said layering. Stock Picture Picture of Actual Jacket Nice Collective Brushed Cotton Leather Trimmed Trench - XL (fits L) - $250 Also from FW08, this retailed at $650 here. I bought it at Roden Gray. It has a soft, brushed cotton that's meant to gain depth over time (and is starting to show signs of doing so) and brown leather detailing. It also has a full zip-out cotton lining. This is quite slim as it fits a full size smaller than tagged, which shouldn't be too big a shock if you're familiar with NiCo sizing. Nice Collective Heavy Cotton Bomber Jacket - XXL (fits XL) - $170 I am normally an XL in NiCo but sized up on this because it's so thick. Really heavy bomber, and the outer wears really beautifully and has already gained a depth of character in the 10 times or so I've worn it. The hood and placket are both detachable. Helmut Lang Cowl Neck 2-in-1 Black Felted Wool Coat - L - $325 This is new and unworn, still with tags. The bottom of this jacket is detachable, making the top half into a waist-length jacket. Made of a thick felted wool, the body is lined in cotton. Fastened with a heavy asymmetrical zip. Originally retailed for over $1700 at TheCorner, as seen here: http://www.thecorner.com/HELMUT_LANG...ection_id/7735 Helmut Lang Cream Cotton Puffa Jacket - XL (fits L) - $300 Really warm jacket with a huge hood. The pictures pretty much tell the story... hard to find a more bad ass puffy jacket than this one. Retailed at... astronomical. Rake not included. Wrath Arcane Dark Green Tech Overshirt/Jacket XL- $25 Fairly slim fit, excellent piece to have to wear overtop of a shirt or sweater in the spring if it's raining. Knits & Sweaters Polo RL 100% Lambswool Sweater Vest - size L - $25 Pretty thick wool, slim fit. Ribbed at the waist. There is a spot on the chest where the weave is weak, which can only be seen if you put pressure on it and have something light-coloured behind it. Pictured below. http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/492/120rvi.jpg J.Lindeberg Red Wool Vest - XL - $25 Retail was $190. This has a tiny snag on the v-neck, see the picture below. It was worn twice; not really my style. Very soft wool. The tagged size is XXL but fits like a slim XL. B.Son Blue / Cream Heavy Cardigan Slim XL - $80 Shoes & Boots Generic Man Sportsman in Black Caviar - 44 - $120 These fit like an 11. They are barely used... I love them in theory, but just never seem to wear them in practice, as I don't really wear sneakers much. http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/1818/087pa.jpg J. Lindeberg Arena Black Canvas (chuckalikes) - 45 - $50 Worn maybe 2-3 times; again, I don't wear sneakers much. Aside from a little wear on the soles at the heel they might as well be new. Le Coq Sportif Brown Leather Army Trainer - 12 - $20 Worn about 5 times. Super low profile and all leather. Nice Collective Combat Boots - 11US (fits 11.5) - $225 The ultimate combat boot, they have a green coating that is meant to wear to black over time. That process has only just started as they've been worn about 10 times. These will last forever, by the same maker that makes boots for the army. They're dusted with sand from the Black Rock desert, as the NiCo founders' sort of tribute to the Burning Man festival. They are labelled 11 but fit a 1/2 size bigger. Retailed at $700+. Paul Smith Nash Brogue in Sigaro - 11UK / 12US - $225 Bought these new and wore them exactly once... I could make it work if I put in an insole but they're a bit too wide for me. Awesome, extremely versatile shoes, get them for less than half price. Allen Edmonds Mora Brown Double Monk Strap - 12D - $150 Might as well be brand new, I may have worn them twice. They are topy'd, and polished to a slightly darker brown than originally. Allen Edmonds Hampstead Chili Woven Leather Spectator - 12D - $150 Worn about 10 times, have a couple of scuffs on the cap and heel, but otherwise very good condition. There is one mark on the side of the right shoe that you can see in the top right picture, it's about 2mm in size. Allen Edmonds Austin Black Wholecut - 13D (Fits Small) - $150 These are a pretty rare find. They were made in the mid 1980s but not worn until I acquired them as new old stock about a year ago. I have worn them about 5 times since then. They fit my feet quite well and I am an 11.5-12, so I would say they fit about a full size small. I guess people in the 80s had small feet? Anyway, they are quite sleek by AE standards and made to a higher standard than much of the stuff they've put out recently. They are topy'd. J Murphy Two-Toned Brown Captoe Balmoral Boots - 12D - $75 Great boots with a two-toned finish. A couple of scuffs here and there, but in good shape overall. Fairly sleek last on these. Salvatore Ferragamo Tramezza Fiorenzo Black Captoe Semibrogue - 12D - $180 Worn less than 10 times, in excellent condition overall; see pics. There is one mark on the outside heel of one of the shoes, which is shown in the picture below. It's tiny and at the back of the shoe, so you'd pretty much have to be lying on the ground and looking for it to notice it, but full disclosure. Jeans & Pants Wings + Horns Straight Cut Raw Indigo - 36 - $150 My favourite denim ever. These are a size 36 and have just started to wear in. I haven't washed them yet. The denim is awesome... well I'll let the pics speak for themselves. http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/2506/132jik.jpg http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/6858/134oj.jpg http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/1036/133gf.jpg Acne Jeans Mic Rigid - sz36 - $90 Not washed yet, good shape overall. The classic Acne straight leg cut. The denim is extremely soft. J.Crew Relaxed Cotton Chino - 36 - $10 Standard J.Crew fare, I may have worn them once. Too big for me. Paul Smith Mainline Brown Corduroy Pant - 36 - $40 [img]http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/2493/112uq[/quote] G-Star Distressed Brown Corduroy Pant - sz36 - $30 Straight leg with a slim cut and metal button fly. Probably the nicest thing I've seen from Gstar in person. [/b][/u]Shirts[/b][/u] Ralph Lauren Purple Label Polos - Pink w/ White Check, Navy w/ White Dot, Red, - Size L - $35 each, 2 for $60, all 3 for $80. Closeup: http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/516/115j.jpg Wings + Horns White Short Sleeved Hoodie - M - $30 Riri zips, classic fleece. Fits true to size. New, never worn... too small. Raf by Raf Contrast Collar Shirt - Blue - XL - $80 Fits slim, like a L. Patrik Ervell Club Collar Shirt in Grey - XL - $90 New, never worn. Love the material, but got smaller before I could wear it and now doesn't fit. John Varvatos Grey / Black Patterned Shirt - L - $45 Band of Outsiders Green Stripe Shirt - XL - $85 Fits a little bigger than BoO usually does, more like a true L. Steven Alan Reverse Seam Shirt, Black / White Check - XL - $75 Helmut Lang Cream Shirt - XL - $80 Fits quite slim and short, a lot like the BoO above. Made during the Lang era before the line was sold. Wings + Horns White Chest Pocket Polo - L - $35 Epaulets, chest pocket and a horizontal stripe woven into the fabric, as you can see in the closeup. Barely worn. Wings + Horns White Long Placket Polo - L - $50 This is a heavier weight thick textured cotton, a really nice FW piece. Note that there is a bit of yellowing under the collar, could be bleached out. Wings + Horns Black Woven V-Neck Tee - S - $25 Fabric Detail: http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/528/043agy.jpg Suits & Sportcoats Burberry Prorsum Cream 3 Button High-Stance Jacket - Slim 52 - $100 The wool has been treated to have a stiffer texture. There is some slight discoloration on one of the arms that I have attempted to picture below, I haven't tried getting it cleaned. Retail was $1500. http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/8613/079tv.jpg http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/8753/075i.jpg Agnes B Charcoal Wool Jacket - 54 - $150 Club Monaco 2 Button Check Jacket - 42 - $80 PS Paul Smith Black Cropped DB Jacket - 42 - $200 Maybe the raddest lining I have ever seen. Polo by Corneliani 1/4 Lined Silk 3/2 Roll Summer Jacket - 42L - $175 Helmut Lang 2b Navy Pinstripe Cotton Jacket - 42 - $175 Lapels: http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/2128/101md.jpg Ermengildo Zegna 3b Silk & Wool Glenplaid Sportcoat - 54 - $250 Full Sized Picture here: http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/9507/103fv.jpg Polo by Corneliani 100% Silk Herringbone Jacket - 44L - $200 Canali Green w/ Brown Check 90%/10% Wool/Cashmere Jacket - 44L - $125 Excuse the wrinkling, this is in fantastic condition, but needs a press. Theory 2b Navy Cotton Jacket - 44 - $100 J. Lindeberg 2b Charcoal w/ Pink Pinstripe Bellied Lapel Jacket - 54 - $125 Helmut Lang Grey Shadow Stripe 3B Slim Suit - 42 - $170 Banana Republic Herringbone Jacket - 44 - $20 Polo by Corneliani Brown Nailhead 2 Button Suit - 44 - $250 This has been worn fewer than 5 times. See the closeup for the nailhead pattern. Polo by Corneliani Brown with White Stripe Cashmere / Wool 3 Button Suit - 44 - $250 This was actually tagged a 46, but fits a 44, as it's the slimmer Bleecker cut. Amazingly soft wool/cashmere blend, and slim lapels. Worn 3 times, like new. Ties First, from left to right here is a Jil Sander green wool knit ($70), a Prada golden scotch check (Sold), a Ralph Lauren Purple Label hand-folded silk in sky blue (Sold), a Gianfranco Ferre in a dark blue herringbone sort of stripe (Sold), a Givenchy Paris in grey stripe (Sold) and an Alfred Dunhill, burgundy with elephants ($30). Next up, the two floral paisleys in red and gold, as well as the lavender scotch check, are all Dolce & Gabanna and are unworn; I would like $70 for the paisleys and (Sold) for the scotch check. The two ties on the right are Canali, the first being yellow with a blue stripe ($60), and the second being a blue with white paisley (Sold). Next, the three ties on the left are Burberry. The first is a soft pink with black and red check ($50), the second is Burberry's signature tan nova check (Sold), the third is a tone-on-tone burgundy check with white Burberry insignia (Sold). The two on the right are both Versace. The first is a grey and black stripe with an embossed medusa logo at the tip ($60), and the second is a really soft blue and black check with medusa print ($50). In fact that print is a little less obvious in real life and quite subtle, but the flash made it more apparent in this picture. Last but not least, a Dolce & Gabanna black tone on tone paisley ($60), and the same Jil Sander knit tie as in the first picture above, which I added here for a better idea of the colour. I took a close-up so that the pattern would be more visible on the Dolce item. Thanks, just post questions below!
