Alas, champagne not included...

Just a quick PSA.. please do not bid on the fake "limited edition" AP ROO floating around on one of the usual sites right now.


Also, $25 off $125 or more on eBay (eligible items only.. it works on clothing) till 7pm PST tonight using CSPRING25OFF125

p.s. is this what they refer to as a nice 'roll' on a OCBD??



Yup, that's a good roll. Even better if it looks the same without a tie and with the top button open.

Looks like men's. Brioni uses the same Roman numeral sizing.

Ask the seller to increase price to $125. Win/win.

My humble finds.


Harris tweed for me, just in time for the warm weather:

I love the rainbow flecks in here.

Green wool for me:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's hard to tell in the pics, but it's a 3-roll-2 with bad pressing.  Hopefully I can fix.


Alpaca? Neat.

With these in the pocket.  Tie clip has no markings,so probably nothing interesting.

Loro Piana Camel:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Had a couple brownish stains on the back, but brushing took it out about 80%.  Is a slight Oxyclean safe for camel?


Some ties

Forgot to take a pic of the back of this, but it's a Polo

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

More Polos





Wife says I haven't got enough christmas ties. Hilfiger.






Pendleton shacket.  Attracts dust like crazy.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Polo shacket, western motif, gaudy colors.  Wife won't let me keep it. :/

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


It did have a tear right where the cuff meets the sleeve.  My repair is barely visible from the outside.  You can see the inside on the left side in this pic.

Vintage Tees:

And, my favorite find, is this thrift-priced, thrift-funded 1986 Nissan 300zx.  No rust, some issues that'll need sorting, but half the point of getting it was to learn how to wrench on cars.  

I only got the cash for it thanks to this thread!

@Sleeves345 I've read somewhere that Oxyclean is bad for any animal fibers and will break down the proteins and eventually the garment. I don't know how trustworthy that really is. Sorry not really helpful I know.
post #33161 of 60372

Would already have been a pretty great couple of weeks, and then I copped an all time personal grail this morning (assuming it's the real deal).  N/A unless otherwise noted.


Seasonal spectrum of ties:


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

e thrifted (payed up a bit on the bay for the grens but huntsman was genuine e thrift) black grenadine from hartwood paris (a french department store similar to bloomies or saks), GA black silk/rayon, T&A forest green silk grenadine, burberrys miengland paisley, olld j press burlington english silk paisley

beast of a huntsman (pop!) geometric, john comfort england, 2nd old j press burlington in wool, sf chicken/egg tie (available), PRL floral, earnest alexander (pop!) miusa cotton striped

awesome chipp repp, VV island motif, gorgeous lochlarron 50/50 linen/wool, petronious (pop!) beefy silk, alexander olch (pop!) wool herringbone, badass PRL wool herringbone traded from Spoo (thanks man!)

I guess I'm set on slim wool ties for a while...

Best in show:

Best best in show.  That black gren is so damn thick it practically knots itself perfectly every time.

Not 100%, but that tag looks a lot like Charvet's...


Some more silk and wool accessories:

Christian Dior silk pocket square with a hunting motif, anonymous handolled silk square, and one diesel Lanvin wool scarf, all wool, made in Italy

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Love the color and pattern mix on this one - jazzy as hell.

Bummed this one was too small for me: OG ralph lauren oilcloth blackwatch bucket cap, made in the usa

In shoes, we have two staid englishman (one in my size, one in my brothers) and their preppy, slightly dorky american cousin (NWOB, in my size.  Summer beaters ftw)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Coupla belts to match, PRL canvas crab motif o ring, VV mermaid motif surcingle (sold the matching tie just last week!) VV is available.

Peal & Co for Brooks Brothers

Church's custom grade for me.  Perfectly fills a gap in my shoe rotation.

These are older finds, but there was some recent vintage ray ban discussion/finds andit put me in mind of this pair I picked up before I started posting here:

Old bausch and lomb round sunglasses with a snakeskin wrapped frame.  Real old, and possibly NOS when I found them.  Now of course they're one of my go to pairs of sunglasses.

Albums intermission before we move on to clothing:

Bob dylan- blood on the tracks, minty pink floyd- the wall, grateful dead- europe 72

tees and the like.. first off a pique ss shirt.  Tags have been removed, but its made in italy (with eu sizing), and has killer details.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Love a good black mop

Any of you ninjas recognize the tags?

another week another great limited run number from uniqlo: SPRZ NY x basquiat gradient t.  weird, but i love it.

Ebbets field flannels havana cubans tee (pop!)


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



And for the discerning gentleman who would rather self immolate than wear hanes: sky blue Brioni XXL (available)


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


and a pink ass VV polo, for someone to wear with a fuckin backpack (available)


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Made in USA shirting, pretty much all for personal use: true vintage madewell chambray (not the j crew ladies shtuff, madewell was a legit workwear brand earlier in the 20th century), ll bean short sleeve red seersucker, j press ecru striped bd

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

And a POP on vermont flannel company, minty fresh in a dope patchwork plaid.  Easily the thickest, softest flannel I've ever encountered.  VFC is actually crazy well priced for the quality (and made in the states), but (minor brag) this pattern is the most expensive.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Some sweats-

For myself: soft, slim J crew vintage fleece sweatshirt in that heather gray color that Steve Mcqueen was all about.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


To indulge my inner fuccboi: marc v. marc jacobs sleeveless hoodie

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


OG nutmeg raiders swaetshirt with a pretty killer stonewash effect.  I know some raiders gear is a thing, does this qualify?


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Patagucci woodgrain abstract camo wavefarers just in time for summer

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


RL indian madras shorts, available

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Some sweaters to stockpile for next winter: been had, two vibrant PRL sweaters I wish were my size, finally a norwegian in my size by neptune, a slouchy wool commando sweater made in england by james dalgiesh



Warning: Sweaters! (Click to show)


Love that slightly different geometric pattern - stands out just a bit from all the birdseye norwegians out there.

This is my 2nd zegna sport piece in this 70/30 cotton cashmere blend - what a perfect fabric.  When zegna gets it right they really get it right.

Definitely big on me, but.. streetwear?

Crazy soft.  Perfect condition,

All ca$$h

Also this!  wut

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

And pop! on versace couture

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Some decent outerwear- pop! on todd snyder - the zipper is a bit jacked but it fits me so i'll hold onto it

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


NWT holloway varsity jacket, wool blend with leather, made in the states.  Available.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Some heat from the wimmenz section-

LL Bean down parka-

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Brand doesn't seem like too big of a deal, but I couldn't leave this behind - a randy kemper champagne print trucker jacket.  My sister is probably enough of a boss to get it for her birthday this year.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



And the winner of the three is a fucking gigantic eskandar lagenlook dress made in England out of thick indigo linen.  Found in the mens pajama section for the kingly sum of 99 cents.  I guess these are straight up money on that other place.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Recently all my good tailoring finds have been in my size.  I'm not really complaining, I guess sometimes you've got to prioritize the wardrobe over the ebay grind.

pop? on Haberdash "bespoke" house line, frickin killer garment dyed brown wool blend unstructured sc 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Been waiting a long time to take a proper barchetta shot.  So nice.

Not bespoke, obviously, but pretty sweet - for reference from haberdash (which I guess is going out of business):

This one is pretty fresh, so I'm thinking somebody took a chance on clearance and it didn't work out.  ~1% retail on this one.


Serious streak lately with the norfolk jackets - today we've got a stellar donegal tweed with a blue windowpane, from none other than burberry(s).  Nothing but love for that old school burberry(s){prorsum}.

Warning: Sick sick deets! (Click to show)

Action back!


And a pop! on RLPL english made (chester barrie, in this case) tailoring.  Wool twill with silver crest buttons, dual exhaust, etc.  Some issues, but it fits and is basically my ideal navy blazer so what the hell.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Some late season tradly tweed from the andover shop:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


And now in actual bespoke, take a gander at this incredible piece of work from michael andrews bespoke, a younger-leaning tailoring organization based out of new york.  Lavendar striped seersucker fabric, shawl collar, linked(!) single button closure, pink contrast stitching and knockout mop buttons?  Jacket fits like it was actually tailored for me?  Okay.  Many many (many!) thanks to @SpooPoker for a gracious, patient trade.  This suit will turn heads at weddings for years to come.  Too cool for spoilers.

For before and after dinner closure.


And finally -


I've lusted after a cartier tank for as long as I had more than a passing interest in watches; it replaced the classic omega seamaster as my grail watch after I stopped watching mad men regularly, and I have several times teetered on the edge of committing to fairly expensive, semi-sketchy craigslist dealings for a tank.  But I held off.  I'm tentatively optimistic this is legit - quality is there, the case is screwed vs snap on, scalloped face is so... elegant - but if anyone has any thoughts either way I would appreciate them.

Generic stainless band, but good make and match.  Also fits my wrist beautifully when closed

Good condition, without any scratches or dents, but it will need a new battery. several identical models have sold/are listed in various places across the interweb.  Quartz movement, which apparently cartier does quite well.  Front is very sturdy seeming - if legit I imagine it's sapphire.

Fits perfectly on my medium-small wrist.  Easily my favorite thrift find ever.  Final brag?  Cost $5.99.  So if it is fake I'll wear it like it ain't.


Let's keep the heat going guys, spring 16 begins with a bang!

I agree.. crown looks wonky and the cabochon shouldn't be that shallow. Sorry @PGRoadhouse ! Awesome haul regardless.
