First, I want to recognize your pun.
It was terrible.
Second, I'm going to take a stab at identifying that leather. I'm just looking at the small image on my phone, and it kind of looks like... elephant.
I could be wrong. You can look up elephant hide and compare it to what you've got in front of you.

I had a vintage elephant case last month and i dont think it is but i could be wrong.
Someome suggested Hippo.

Posting on this thread after the likes @impuntura gives me flashbacks of times I shared about what I did over the weekend with the MD at the bank I used to work at after hearing about his weekend adventures.  But hey, that's ok.

 

Hey guys, I finally get to be one of those people who wears a suit with the first button of their functional cuffs unbuttoned.  Posted earlier but wanted to share the fit with a better pic.  Only thing my body double and I have differently is a 0.5" pant length.  Made in Italy but a maker I have yet to identify for a local shop's private (found out Chris Webber shops there).  Anybody who has an ID on the tag would be greatly appreciated though it really doesn't matter since I'm keeping.  Currently the best constructed suit I own (reunited orphan to top it all of!).  Excuse the messy couch, my wife will be pissed once she sees I posted a picture inclusive of the mess lol. 

 

Thought I'd smile more in my pics (see spoilered pictures for pattern and color)

Pretty sure this was same donor.  Is this Corneliani tag recent?  Found the pants to these too (2/2!) but sadly they had a couple holes.  Staple Navy, considering whether or not to slap some gold buttons on there to replace my current crappy navy blazer.  Is that an option here?

Authenticity check on this Gucci tie?

 

Red 100% BB Blazer made in USA.  Already claimed by a trad brother over on AAAC

@impuntura looks like sueded bison or buffalo...I had a pair of boots a while back that heel caps wrapped in bison. Almost bought a pair of boots last weekend full uppers in bison. Should be almost as durable as bullhide, although not sure if you want to put that to the test with a pair of LV driving mocs, haha. Nice finds.

edit: looks like answered already...

Heres some stuff I picked up yesterday. Slow, but not dead, here.

Here's the content/origin tag of a legit TB grosgrain stripe OCBD.

The stitching on the back of that placket and the edges on the shirt with the Chinese care tag looks suspect as well...
post #41366 of 51059

Thanks anyway Tex!

didn't think it was quite that old. the zipper looked later, like 50s-60s.

are we sure it's not German? It has a Zipp zipper.

regardless I really dig the styling and hope it fits well.
post #41370 of 51059

Forgot a few things:

 

Represent Clothing Co made in England for myself. Really dig the style of it.

 

 

VV marlin tie, Sulka.

 

 

And can ANYONE tell me why these exist. I mean, I had to buy them just because but it's just not something I expected to see.
