Those look like black shell cordovan, got a pic of the model number?

No clue sorry, I'm sure someone in here will recognize that. Google says its from an old menswear store in the UK, early 80's or something

From my research, the company started in the 60s. Not sure it still exists.

Saw my first Bamford & Sons piece, sweet jacket made in Italy.  I guess the shop Googled it for some reason and priced it at $300.

Really recent gorgeous pink Brioni tie with stains all over it, $75.

4 or 5 Loro Piana mainline jackets, also priced the hell up (I mean, way over and above what anyone would pay on eBay or anywhere else).

Shredded collar & stained Kiton shirt, $195.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

I am pretty sure Spoo will have a nice Bamford & Sons sport coat coming to auction pretty soon. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks! Made by Castangia or Caruso, do not remember which one...

Hit my regular weekend stop today and found some unusually good stuff. Kind of surprising considering I left it until Sunday.

 

Pop on van Laack:

 

 

I love the three-hole buttons. Here's a close-up of a couple, along with the sleeve embroidery:

 

 

It's rare for me to find a shirt that fits in the body and has long enough sleeves for my lanky-ass arms. Thrift fit with a pair of Incotex:

 

 

Pop on Michael Bastian:

 

 

 

Never heard of this brand before- Colman and Watson- shirt is made in Ireland and listed as a size 3. At $8, and with a nice Seattle-appropriate pattern, I figured what the hell.

 

 

Pop on Massimo Bizzocchi:

 

 

34 x 32 Canali corduroys. Not sure why it looks like there's a stain on the leg, there's no stain:

 

 

Barney's house label tie. Content tag has another tag under it that says hand made in Italy (couldn't get a clear pic). Google searching leads me to tentatively conclue that this was made by Piattelli back when their quality was better.

 

 

Pop on ancient madder, I think. This is just an ancient tie in general- it just feels old, and it's significantly heavier and thicker than any of my other Brooks Brothers ties.

 

 

 

Here's a better picture of the print and texture.

 

 

And, on the other end of the spectrum, here's a more modern Brooks Brothers tie that would be perfect to wear to pick your kid up from school if you needed to make absolutely certain that they were incredibly embarrassed by you.

 

 

 

Rounding out the ties, I actually bought this one last week but never got around to posting it. Dior is so weird- they make some gorgeous ties, but then I've also seen some horrible thinly striped polyester skinny ties with a tacky "Dior" at the bottom of the big blade.

 

 

Pop on Seize sur Vingt. Or maybe pop isn't the right word to use when I'd never heard of them before today.

 

 

I figure it was donated by the same person who donated the van Laack as it fits me perfectly. Thift fit with the same pair of Incotex:

 

 

 

More details on the Incotex: Flat front venezia 1951 Super 130s

From my thousands of miles away I like to imagine you rock up to the LuxeSwap store in this and just give directions from a thrifted throne in the middle of the shop floor.

L / XL. Thanks for checking tho.

Found this at goodwill over the weekend.

 

Kinda bland but I'm thinking of getting some camo fabric that pairs well with it and sowing it onto the collar and straps. Also maybe lining the inside with something a bit warm sturdy to make it a light fall jacket.

@Wrong Crowd, you've got it wrong on the dates of those Brooks Brothers ties. The paisley one is newer, the other one is the older tag.

Looks like my old Coast Guard ODU blouses, except it must predate me as I never had an ODU blouse with epaulets.
