Started in the sport coats, and after seeing this handiwork, I knew I was in for a special day:

Cashmere Uma Reddy Handiwork

Cashmere Uma Reddy Surgeon Cuffs

Label


An Uma Reddy (New York Custom Tailor) custom cashmere herringbone sport coat with a gorgeous fabric/pattern. Pop for me and a very rarely (if ever?) seen tailor in this thread!



But it didn't stop there, as I noticed something bulging in the pocket (I initially thought it was one of those fake pocket squares from the cleaners).

Pocket Square


Sure, why not?

Hermes Pocket Square

Continued through the sport coats and proceeded to find 5 more Uma Reddy SCs, all in brilliant patterns and fabrics (and a charcoal suit).

 Uma Reddy SC's


All are pretty short in the sleeve lengths so short-armed guys, get at me! (Measurements in spoiler)

All jackets measure around:
 
Shoulder: 19"
Sleeve: 23.5"
P2P: 22.5 - 24"
Length: 31"

Then on to the ties, where the real madness began. I stumbled upon someone's incredible tie collection. 72 ties total, 64 7-folds, 4 grenadines, and one absurd day. Took a good bit of  work to identify most of these since only some had labels, and some still remain unidentified (any help would be greatly appreciated!):


 
22 Kitons (4 with the label, but the rest were identified by other features (7 fold, content tag, shape, etc.))

Pass. Also, a heads up that it irritates some people for you to ask simple questions in the thread. The entire thread(hell, entire board) is a resource to cover stuff like this. Or feel free to PM me if you have any questions about what you should or shouldn't cop. I don't mind. Thanks!

And this is why you are one of my favorite posters.

Happy New year everybody, lot's of drinks and food, cheerful people and moments, damn we partied out like it was 1999 (Prince pun:violin:).
