So, I really love one of the local shops for having the strangest sales. Popped in yesterday to find most all wimminz couture is 1/2 off, all mens shorts, or short pants 1/2 off, and Bogo on anything white or clear...

For me, a lot of it has come down to design details. Daiki-era looks similar to EG, but a little more restrained. McNairy looks, to me, a little more boring, as far as details go, and a little more insane as far as fabrics and "standout" pieces (which look much like his own line).



As for details/numbers to identify, the only one I've noticed is the "Made in the Garment Center" tag is mostly (only?) on McNairy-era.

From the pics? Daiki has it.

I don't think I'm moody/broody/pensive enough to wear that Daiki or McNairy stuff.

McNairy really needs to re-evaluate job choices.

You remember when Homer Simpson designed a car? = Mc Nairy.

Daiki is very Blue collar influenced. The everyday steez. Well, apart from the pants designed to push a small boat offshore.

His fits with jeans would be spot on.

Brioni blackwatch tie, with that little strap to button the keeper to your shirt.  Legit?  I haven't seen a Brioni tie with this.  Also, that rectangular black keeper tag doesn't look like Brioni.

@Thrift Vader

I think you and I are on the same page.

Didn't want to explicitly say McNairy's era looks more contrived, but that's pretty much exactly what I mean.

I picked this up last week. I am having trouble identifying it. Can someone please help me.

Over half the "Daiki-era" WWM sold on Ebay isn't. Outside of styling based things, there aren't any specific tells, as far as I know.

Shitty pics. Everything is 1000 percent available.

Found this trunk yesterday. Normally would see prices over $100 on less cool trunks, this one was $34. Not available.


I'd guess a bit over 100 years old.


Charles Wtihnell & Sons - Leather Bag Warehouse.

Canvas bound in leather and wood with brass bumpers on all corners.

Fabric lining, original removable shelf.


Haven't done much to it except remove 3 wasp nests from the inside.

E-thriffted this yesterday. Almost snagged it before when it was more, glad I waited. The title really makes no sense to me, not even sure how I came across it.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Another Prada, definitely a bit skeetish, top portion of jacket is wool, as you move towards bottom, the pile gets lighter, until when you get to bottom 8" of jacket it is like crinkled silk. Hard to explain, and don't know if pics captured it well. 38 small fit. These also had a pair of non matching pants with them, again pants were badly torn.

Dolce & Gabbana solid blue sport coat. Probable orphan, but too well made to leave behind. 38, fits more like a 40. Small pulls just above button opening on lapel.

My first Savile Row finds that I actually bought. Allan & Harvey bespoke HEAVY double breasted coat. No size given, PM for measurements if interested. This is so well made, can be buttoned either to left or right. Weighs a ton. Google Fallan 7 Harvey and there is a post on AAAC that raves about quality and service that was offered by Mr. Fallan. Picture of sleeve and cuff best shows true color of garment.

Second Fallan & Harvey bespoke piece that Mr Lobell was kind enough to donate. 99% sure it is cashmere, compared it to all my other 100% cashmere pieces, could not tell a difference. No size stated.
