Vex, what kind of mannequin do you have? It always makes your jackets look incredibly square-shouldered, even on jackets I know aren't cut like that (like those BBs).

Some random shit from CL. It may just be how I pin them back, no idea.

in case any of you weren't aware of, ikea has these add-on shoulder shapers for your hangers, 50 cents a pop.

they work very well, they're cheap, and they're light. good alternative to expensive hangers.

Anybody a 39r (sorry @Orgetorix) want this? '49 union tag and the mill shut down in '56. Triple patch, unlined and pretty awesome IMO.

I'll co-sign this, I bought about 75 of them over the summer. I still prefer a proper, wide hanger, but I was able to convert a bunch of IKEA hangers I already owned, which was nice.

If you can, invest in a new mannequin. If the jacket looks bad in the photos it can and will hurt your margins and sometimes cost you sales altogether.

^^ Initial happiness has subsided, replaced with a healthy skepticism...

Tags seem to be attached poorly and I'm starting to feel these are fakes. (also because of the obvious fake women's skirt from the same purchase.)

And the cashmere isn't nearly as soft as even a good blend. Here are pictures of the labels... See what I see?











Thanks for any help / advice.

They seem ok to me. Those tags seem to always be coming off as well.

Lunch thrift, local church, Church's custom grade cap toe. Most I have ever paid thrifting except for a feral, stray cat I got neutered. I think I got pre Prada, I think I got my size , I think I got a cat.

@SteelGuy I'm on mobile so pics are small, but not seeing anything drastically wrong with the labels. Every single RLPL item I've ever owned, bought new and thrifted, have had tags that seem to be flirting with falling off. Same goes with most Loro Piana. Seem to be delicately attached so as to not mess with the drape of the item or something.
