thanks guys. i'll take some pics tomorrow.

I'm guessing wiminz, by the shape of the sleeve? Tagged Large but it's small, even for a vintage large.

 

NWT Ted Baker, size 5 (basically XL) Available for cheeps (edit: not stained at all, weird pic I guess)

 

 

@Nataku or anyone who feels like chiming in..here's my M65. Tags are coming a bit loose but they are there. Worth the effort?

Evisu (cheap ones or fakes - not sure which) has that. Before I knew what selvedge was and looked like, I fell for it.

Gave him these Walter Newberg for Wilkes Bashford numbers too. Are these something exotic? Did I screw up by giving them away and not flipping?

Not quite the loafs Spoo had on the other day, but those are pretty sexy.
