Synergy on this, except with the plaid lining.


And slant pockets versus cargo pockets!

Love the fabric on this HF. I've never really felt any wool like it, especially not in an overcoat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Imagine my dismay, when I discovered this is the lining to a probably pretty awesome coat. At least it has the button links so its still wearable as it's intended separate function.

I thought this was NWOT with the extra buttons attached to the collar label when I bought it, but noticed some bleach-like staining on the back while photographing :angry:

I believe you're right and it's just their normal made in Italy stuff. Thanks for the tip.

wait whut? that's a lining? do you have a link that shows how that works? i've been sitting on something similar (without the link buttons) and i'd love to finally resolve this.

Yeah, a wool lining, for inside a trench coat. It would button all the way around the interior of the coat shell using buttons fixed to the inside of the shell. Then there are also tiny hidden button holes around where the collar is attached to button it in there too. Then the collar flap would sit out side on top of the trench collar. But on this one the links were included so the lining could be worn separately as well.

sorry to beat this to death but I'm just a little surprised to see sleeves on a trench liner. 

 

but are those buttons original ferragamo or did somebody aftermarket those? and where can i get a set - i've looked and i've been frankly stumped

Hello, noob here to posting, hope I get it right. Started thrifting in Dec 2015, mostly just ties, and then more things in the spring. Came across the site and this thread beginning of this year, and am blown away by the collective knowledge of everyone here, and everyone's willingness to share that knowledge. I feel like I am back in school, have been on one big cram session the last month. I have read this thread completely, and am 3/4 ways through Part 1. Thanks to each and everyone who has posted, I feel like I went from a 3rd grade thrifting education to middle school level, and look forward to continuing journey. Plus, my friends will like me better because now I have a place to share the thrill of the find, which they just don't understand. Here are a few things I have thrifted the last few weeks, probably 25% but I haven't gotten around to taking pics yet. Apologies in advance for poor quality, still working on my camera skills.

Well apparently I screwed up the spoiler part........are you supposed to put pics in box that pops up? I looked for a thread that showed how to post properly, but could not find one  that made sense.

post #28304 of 51002

yes, either put pics in box or highlight them and then select spoiler. gold stars for good intention and nice haul!

If you still want to spoiler, you can click edit and select what you want to spoiler and then click the spoiler icon.
