It's what we do. There wouldn't be an America in the first place, otherwise.
Received my late father's two sports jackets back from the tailor.Warning: Vintage FTW (Click to show)
Must be at least forty years old, but after some alterations and a thorough dry-cleaning, they look brand new.
Jackets were made in Melbourne (I think), fully bespoke, mostly hand-stitched. Check out the pick-stitching on the lapels (look inside the spoiler) - it's insane.
I fixed the PS a bit for the second photo. The other jacket is a brown hounds-tooth, will post separately.

It's nice, when vintage'esque stuff is being mass produced, to see actual real vintage stuff and be reminded that 'classic' looks are called that for a reason.
Is this the Midnight Blue Repp Silk? Whatever it is, I want this tie in Midnight Blue, Burgundy, Dark Green and maybe Black.
