If it's made by them it would make sense. They make some amazing brass buttons using an almost lost art of Wax Loss casting.

Not to fret, all gold dental work and crowns that have a metal component are made using that technique (but ya its taught and described as a dying art)

I actually didn't realize that. Most of the dental work I've had done recently was all porcelain or similar material.  Thanks for the info!

Yup, the movement of aesthetics over form and function makes such items less desirable, but where I went to school, I had to wax up and cast gold crowns as well as the metal components before the fusion of the porcelain

Well I haven't seen much action since I relocated to the Emerald City, mostly since I haven't had the opportunity to get out with all the move has brought but I have found a few gems.

Jos. A. Bank evening jacket

Jos. A. Bank evening jacket

Recent E. Zegna

Recent E. Zegna suit

Gucci from Tom Ford era

Hickey Freeman

And this was a pop
post #20785 of 55058

Some Scottish cashmere

 

 

Some aloha

 

 

Nice Zegna tie

 

 

I can see why some of you guys like Allsaints, too bad these fit too slim

 

 

Corneliani silk/cash I left at the store because maybe an orphan. Real nice.

 

 

 

 

Is this legit?!?

Also, forgot to post those Faconnable chinos. They're made in Italy and well made but not sure they're the Incotex ones, since they're not labeled as such. Anyone know?





post #20787 of 55058

H&S is legit (cloth label anyway)

post #20788 of 55058
@colorvision
Found a nice bespoke coat a while back with the same H&S tag, unknown maker made it a tough sell, the cloth is 98% wool 1% cashmere 1% vicuña

I've been seeing a lot of Hawaiian shirts at my main store lately. Can anyone post some words about ones that might be worth it to pick up? Is there a resident Hawaii swag expert?

I suggest getting this book it helped me learn the labels.









It even covers the buttons



That and the most valuable ones have like a selvedge edge for the maker and print like this normaly on the right side lower behind the buttons. The Shaheen seen here is one and kahanamoku are the most desired.
