I thrifted Don Draper's overcoat! Okay, one just like it at least. It's a Dhalishan cashmere in navy that is exactly like the one linked below, only difference is the color. Condition is perfect.

^ I just went back and looked at yours, and it is definitely the same coat. Yours has the mink thrown in, but the details and label style are consistent with mine and the Draper coat. . Here is my tag:

you think the mink makes it more or less desirable than 100% cashmere?
post #17615 of 110483
My guess is that the mink was a selling gimmick, and that it sold for more than the all cashmere model. The mink probably does make it softer. (I don't mean gimmick in a way to knock your coat.)

I know that wasnt meant as a dig LOL

I know on ladies coats its a plus, but i really don't know much about this coat. I will say it feels fucking FANTASTIC, and it looks NWOT. The damn receipt from 1975 was folded up in the pocket!

^Interesting to get a date. I probably would have guessed a little earlier, but it's likely they made these over a longer period of time exactly the same way. These seem to have been sold in independent men's shops around the country.

What was the 1975 price?

so adjusted for inflation ~$800

Pretty damn expensive coat, when you consider that the super expensive menswear is as I understand it, a semi-recent invention

When you said mink, I was expecting this

Got the Medana back from service; COA and new crystal. Watch looks great for a 60+ old swiss!

^ Wow. I don't even wear watches and I'm jealous.

Disappointing day today. I found my first ever Oxxford anything (sportcoat, 44R) that was too big for me and too beat up to buy for sale, a cream colored Aquascutum shirt with a small green pen mark near the collar that I would've taken a chance on if it was less expensive, and my first ever Sulka tie that was too beat up and dated to even justify putting down $2 for it. It's a huge store so I spent a while there while my grandmother sat in the car (apparently she's too good for thrifting; she makes her own clothes). When I came out empty handed she was not pleased.

I've also tried looking for this on AAAC, but couldn't find it. Would anyone happen to have a link?

Today the benevolent gods of thrifting sent me something relatively nice: a J. Press herringbone 3-show-2 with a beatiful roll! Please make me offers smile.gif!

Pretty good day today. Found a vintage Abercrombie & Fitch (like real vintage probably from the 60's) paddington jacket made in "West Germany". 100% wool 42R. Also, a Lock & Co. tweed bucket hat, NWT. Vintage Alain Mikli eyeglass frames. 1981 Marvel X-Men comic. Two bespoke jackets, all handmade - one navy velvet, and one navy double-breasted blazer. There were no tags so I can't identify the maker, but they appear never to have been worn and are very recent. All the above for under $50.

gdwy89, it's somewhere in the thrift store blue thread, google led me to this page:
http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?57304-Thrift-store-blues/page30

Honestly, just get a pair of bills and study the waistband and belt loops for a bit and you'll figure it out.

I picked up this Canali the other day.

I know people here say Canali's not worth picking up because it doesn't sell, but I'm a sucker for jackets with silk in them and this one's a silk wool blend.

It's tagged a euro 56- that's a us 46 right?
