Believe it or not, some Mezlans are like the skeets of the footwear world. The stranger, the better. I have sold pre-owned lime green calf Mezlans for over $150. Their oxfords with the tassel aglets seem to do best for me.

I think of Celine as comparable with Hermes, but the average eBay buyer DOES NOT. Took me forever to unload a really nice silk/cashmere women's scarf. Same with a Celine tie, but I'll kop them for myself.

Haversack cotton/wool shirt, The Bridge necessaire and 505 selvage

 

 

Any thoughts on these, seems well made

Stefano Ricci silk dress scarf.


Stefano Ricci 100% cashmere scarf. I haven't measured it yet, but it's gigantic. Neiman Marcus is selling one for $2875 at the moment.



JW Brine cotton/viscose scarf. Made in Italy. Not yet measured, but very big.
I need a little help with these three. All have this same basic label. I've seen this green label with a duck on older Drakes scarves, but don't know if it's actually made by Drakes. Any info is appreciated.

This guy really liked yellow paisley dress scarves. First up, this anonymous one.



Same maker for Alan Flusser for Saks.



Same maker for Battistoni. Double sided with silk on one side and a wool/cashmere blend on the other.


I sent Mark Cho (Drake's owner) a message on Instagram about these scarves. He consulted Michael Hill (Drake's Creative Director) and confirmed that this green label with a duck is indeed an older Drake's label. So the final pickup, two Stefano Ricci scarves, three Drake's scarves and JW Brine. Nice.

Re: #forbrian: I'm once again reminded how proud and privileged I am to have come across and been welcomed by this community. I've been the beneficiary of your generosity, and have been trying to earn it ever since. I also got to know Brian a bit, and his loss saddens me profoundly (though I can't begin to fathom the sadness his close friends and family are suffering). I hope he and they find comfort and peace.

For your part in that effort, well done gents.

Carry on.

Ive got a bunch (thrifted, but not by me) but don't know what to do. Patchwork something rings a bell but I don't have the foggiest who to do it or what they would do.

Horse blanket. Or a picnic blanket.

Impuntra: I had that jacket a while back. It's great but I shrunk out of it.

Nice little estate sale find. Cooper A2 Air Force bomber in near mint condition. Would keep for personal but it's a size too big. Anybody have any insight on dating this?

Pretty sure those were reissues made in 1992.
