OK, thanks. I'll have to take a pic of my CT one as well and get an opinion!

Don't normally do vintage.....but.....Found yesterday in a local Goodwill.

 

1936 Tails....Melton wool, crossgrain lapels, zero moth nibbles. In some ways not as cool as the Michael Bastian Linen harrington jacket, but cooler because of the condition.

Midnight blue, too, which makes it even more special.

I usually make it to the 36" sizes before I get depressed and just walk away. #ThriftProblems

Exact same story for me. With the waistband thing, they're always too close together that it never really works for me to just scan them. I try it but I never really go above 36.

If that shirt was 15.5, I'd give you a spleen.

I always leave them on the rails. Someone will probably come along and tell me they're a thing now.

 

I like those rugby/polo shirts (apart from white) :embar: They're worth money though, pick them up. I wear a medium/large btw..

 

I'd leave my job for a position at Hackett.

It was a good day out today!

 

First off, can anyone help me with a maker of this Facconable suit? Love the quality and details!

Also, if I could get a second opinion on this Hermes, all of the details seem to be there, but it doesn't look or feel like any Hermes I've ever handled before:

And the rest of today's haul:

I'll defer to the experts though.

Look for the single thread stich loop on the tie, under the material fold-overs.

Thanks all!

Polo people, is this anything special? I'm about as uneducated with polo as it gets.
