OK you guys. This is rounding off a sick ass weekend. Here goes.
Felt good about that crazy estate sale haul yesterday so had wifey look up some other ones and hit the road nice and early. I was disappointed at first…but thrilled at the end. Story as follows.
Started off slow, not much closet action, except for a few highlights -
giant piece of elephant hide, guy said he shot it himself in Zimbabwe in 2000. going to become something, what, I don't know. its literally 1/2" thick and tremendous (thats what she said). N/A
NYC parking signs N/A
Tartan pillow, never heard of the brand, anyone?
prl goosedown vest
prl navy cord field jacket
plus hanger to be re purposed on my next purple label suit
cross capeskin N/A
so then i said meh, this isn't the type of haul i want to be having, so lets get back in the field. it was nearly lunch so i said lets do one stop #jompso and hope for the best. What I wasn't ready for was a lifetime goal, pretty much unrepeatable.
The literal very first thing I see/touch was a pair of zegna chukka things, so i knew the fruit was hanging low
ties, liberty N/A
hats for the hunter types
ga black label field jacket silk blend
nice square and PRL england leather braces
hey there baby
so i go over to shirts, M. Bardelli linen M, Eton 15.5, and this fucker - corbella milano - never heard of them but talk about details
they. fucking. stitched. the. bespoke. info. in. THINK ABOUT THAT
sweaters, yes please.
so now heres where shit gets real. POP on these babies, hand work to make kiton look like the K stands for Kirkland.
Now, are you ready for this?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
