- button-fly front

oh, and NWOT, never hemmed. Gotta think these will appeal to the 'lo heads out there.

Currently NA

Found the same pair a few years ago. So many awesome details, but didn't look like they did too hot on the bay, so I kept em.

Found an LBM 1911corduroy sportcoat, it has some unknown stain on the chest. What's the best way to clean it? It is 100% cotton

More (crappy) pics of the LP blazer. Currently NA (have had a ton of people PMing me about trading/buying it).

It fits me beautifully but I'm pretty sure it's probably the most flippable item I've found recently, so it'll probably end up on feebay.

Any LP aficionados able to lend a hand on figuring out more about what I've got? I'm usually pretty capable of finding any information I'm looking for, but I'm coming up pretty empty-handed on this particular setup. Similar LP Blazers range from $2k-18k (based on fabric and if handmade) but I can't find any in this particular flavor of Pecora Nera. It is definitely unworn and even has the nice bag of buttons and thread to go along with it.

First time trying to do a spoiler...

Also I think one of the pics shows a pile of part of my pocket square haul: over 20 from Ashear, Nieman Marcus, Austin Reed, etc., most all of which are tagged Italy with a few English stragglers.

Been lazy on taking pics but also found a few EZ shirts (one si misura that I didn't spot some collar deterioration on), Minty Eton in staple white, few skeet of RG and Bugatchi, Haupt, Kuhl, among others. Here are a couple pics of the other LP fabrics and an orphan Gieves...




I know, I need to invest in a real camera. Some of y'alls presentation abilities are amazing. Mine, are not.

Pecora nera is a new Zealand black wool sheep. They use it primarily for the natural color of there wool. I believe it's loro own flock. I have a the overcoat version of it but mine seems just a little lighter in color. Retail was $4250. So I would imagine it's in the 2500 or less range if it's just wool. Just from what I know others may know more.

Yeah, I figure it's on the low end of that spectrum, but it's astounding how little I can find on pricing on PN. I've found a lot of articles about the origin of the wool and how LP has the exclusive right's to it, but that's about it. Thanks for the insight though, always appreciated!

I am really impressed by how soft to the touch it is, I guess that's why it intrigued LP enough to market it. Not having to worry about the dyes/chemicals so much is definitely a nice thing in this case.

I think the last time I wore size 32 dress pants was 7th grade. Had to go.

Found my 2nd LBM in about as many weeks, which is awesome for my little area. Unfortunately (fortunately?) this one doesnt fit me, so it goes on the selling/trading block (im trying to set-up a turn table - my first, so very interested in a table, speakers, or amp...or cash to buyt those items haha) So if you're a 44 and like unstructured jackets, please contact me or checkout the buy/sell/trade thread.

Patch pocket, silk/linen, great textures and fantastic condition. Sleeves have been shorted, but not to t-rex length - surgeon cuffs have been closed, but due to the texture, you cant make out the scars - very well done job
