I left several Turnbull Asser bespoke suits this week, priced $350 each, kinda disappointed with how Savile Row stuff seems to do.

Some better photos of the pants from last week in addition to this weekends grabs. The suits/Gucci pants were a buck a piece which was cool. I'm horrible and haven't got back to some PMs so I'm sorry about that. Gonna get on it.

If I'm being pedantic Turnbull & Asser are Jermyn Street, but I know what you mean, I have a Gieves & Hawkes jacket up for sale that I'm very surprised hasn't gone yet, cheap too.

Giacomo de Senese tie is awesome, its burnout velvet but its hard to see in the pics.

Small guys, that swatch of solid classics with pois linings are all indochino bespoke samples and are small.

Sunglass haul this weekend was crazy, B&L shooters with the Bakelite bridge (in peach!) are probably 50s. Ensign aviators are green mineral glass and probably 60s.

Plaid jacket with the blue overcheck is cashmere. Cole Haans are made in England but I don't think they're Edward Green. BB by Thurston I only saw one time before this one today, thats pretty cool. Bergdorf sweater is cucinelli. Orioles jacket is hella old. American Optical pilots are NWOB.

Hermes scarf was $5 and I pulled it out right in front of this other woman who was clearly trolling the rack to flip scarves and cut right in front of me. So that made it all the much nicer. Of course Im holding it up to the light, examining it (bullshit, I knew what it was before I touched it.) Holding that Hermes logo waaayyyy up high. LOL.

Send some of that love my way. It does OK, but not THAT ok, and never on auction. Almost like there's one, huge seller of menswear out there drawing all the bidders like a massive magnet.

That's a lot for suit by our standards, and I would probably have done the same thing. Still would have been stoked to find them -- this is museum quality, $4K retail stuff that's hand made. If you're doing it because you love clothes, that's what it's all about. Money's nice, but I just enjoy handling this stuff.

T&A are made by Chester Barrie -- usually actually CB Made in UK, which is actually CB Savile Row. So he was right. If I'm being pedantic.

See, I'm never quite sure about CB, sold on the row, but AFAIK all their made in England is made in Cheshire - at least according to them. That said, my favourite jackets are CB made in England and are much nicer than the G&H bespoke jacket I have. For some reason you see way more Savile Row on your side of the Atlantic than here, so thats all I've come across for now.

Fucking motherfucker. This asshole chopped off at least two inches, totally ruining the "balance" of the coat. Fucking heartbreaking. It would have been my new go-to navy blazer.

And the award for best improvement of a label goes to Hickey Freeman. Wow.
