Polo size 10 with no buttons and a small hole on the shoulder. But it's a triple patch pocket, 3-2, hopsack blazer, so ....

 

Anyone have a 10 yo who needs this?

 

 

Those contrast collar shirts are Ricci, Turnbull&Asser and Canali

 

 

Didn't pick them up, but it did make me wonder .... Ohhhh. Got it.

For real, I had some time to kill after work and stopped by a Savers.

 

Average PPU (i like this idea): $4.39

First off, is this LVC or is this just an old Levi's shirt? Feels "new" and the made in Portugal seemed to ring a bell so I grabbed it.

Lvc has done repros from the 60s 70s and even 80s. im not too familiar but id guess that tag would be from 60s or 70s, after levis went fully 'lifestyle brand'. id agree about the portugal thing, probably suggests more recent lvc.

Ascot Chang orange seersucker. Definitely an unusual combo - peak lapel seersucker with patch pockets, but it fits so perfectly it might as well have been tailored for me. Just wish I would have found it at the beginning of summer.

Check in the pockets and cuffs of those trousers for other maker tags. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I just say that because I found a similar pair, and found "Tom James" labels in the fabric that protects the back of the cuffs. Turns out H&S provide a ton of different fabrics for Tom James. I ended up flipping them on the Bay, not for big money, but enough to make it worthwhile

I think they're the real deal. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Same guy also donated a couple bespoke suits that had clear markings differentiating the fabric provider (which was not H&S) from the suitmaker. I didn't pick them up because the manufacturer was some local shop I didn't recognize, but they were similarly nice and modern, fully canvassed, two-button, flat front, working cuffs, double vented, one plain navy and one plain charcoal- shame the guy was shorter and wider or I would have picked them up for personal use. Wouldn't surprise me if a guy who would spring for those would also be willing to cough up for the real deal. Of course, I could be totally wrong- as I said in my first post,
this is my first time dealing with anything even tangentially related to the Row.

...
H&S is and always has been exclusively a fabric maker based on the Row -- I assume, though I have no basis for this other than logic, to take advantage of location and service the bespoke houses. They've never offered any garmentry or tailoring services, ever.
In the USA, the most common maker bearing H&S badging is Tom James.

I know Jompso was kidding (he said so explicitly) and G/SD was just venting, but G/SD, your priorities are dead straight. Especially right now and for the next 9-18 months.

Head down and focus, son. These are the most important 2 years of your career, this first year especially. Don't screw it up. Thrifting will always be there. You get one shot at your first year of law school, and those grades will literally change the course of the rest of your life. You're paying a criminally obscene amount of money, you'd better get your money's worth.

So here we go again with the nerdy esoterica.
There is allegedly a technical difference between a 6 and 7 fold, but the American market fucks it up so often that it's used interchangeably. I've seen photos that purport to show each of the 6 and 7 folds in the differing ties to show which is what, but I'll be honest, it's not particularly clear to me.
What I do know is that Patrizio Cappelli says they're different, and that's enough authority for me. I also know that Cappelli's 7 fold are markedly different from my Isaia "7 fold" and even the Kiton I have, which suggests to me that the Isaia and Kiton are really technically 6 fold and Patrizio is making the more traditional 7 fold.
But it doesn't really matter. They're all multifold ties, which is all most folks really care about.
What REALLY makes a difference is whether they're tipped, and whether the folds make the lining, or whether they're lined. The less lining, the lighter and more natural they flow and float, but the more prone to creasing and damage. The tiemaker also needs to have sufficient skill to have folded enough silk inside to give the tie body, or it'll be TOO light and won't hold a decent knot.
It's a very delicate balance. Which is why ties like Vanda are shockingly impressive -- truly unlined, yet with the PERFECT amount of body and heft to form a perfect knot every. damn. time.

Anyway. Carry on.

Kinda weak right now... You can probably get about $20-30 for it. I would probably not kop if it's over $10.

PSA: I made a purchase from the round two website for the first time. No bueno. I bought a sweater that had multiple large holes in it. The issues were never stated. I would probably only shop in the stores not blind off the website again. 


Oh man. That is too bad. :( 

 

In other news a week ago I purchased something I should have passed on, then proceeded to soak it in the tub. I forgot to turn the water off and our overflow valve turned out to be plugged. Gah!

 

I've been in overdrive mode this week working on getting this put back together. Also thrifting every night. I'm not going to find it if I don't look.

 

Tons of Fodder, Polo continues to fall out of the woodwork though, this time from the Halloween section.

 

Condition issues but super cool. Does anyone know when they started using the blue label? I can't decide what era this jacket is from with the leather buttons and western style...

 

 

Dang elbow wear. This sucker fits though...
