post #18931 of 112284
Tell you what I did C 1 day:

I was working for a real estate office when we did an brokers' open house and, lo & behold, there was a 4 REAL Gustav Stickley kitchen table w/sloppy dripping paint cans really screwing it up. Of course my broker refused my request to speak 2 the owner @ it. My guess is the owner probably chopped up the matching chairs that were taking up 2 much room and used them for kindling. Makes perfect sense, no?

Ah, those were the daze Hahaha!

I also found a couple of RLPL casual shirts, a Lacoste polo and an LL Bean henley type shirt (the Bean is for me).
Another cool little item was a framed repro print (I assume it's repro) of an old engraving of Napoli. It had the sticker of a Naples art and frame shop on it. A donated old souvenir, I figure. Since it's of Napoli, I thought it might be nice as a closet decoration, plus I like old engravings.

Nice! I've never managed to get one of those thick Oxxford hangers myself, only traded for them. The rest of the haul sounds great too. What size are those RLPL casual shirts? Also, could we get a photo of that engraving?

Here's the Napoli engraving. It's quite small (frame is 8" x 7"), and has a sticker on the back from d'Antonio Art, Gallery & Frames.

And the shirts. RLPL button down is tagged L, RLPL Polo is XL, Lacoste is size 7 (~XL):

if anybody would be interested in this post up and let me know and i will start making a list of items, which will take a while in and of itself.

DEFINITELY interested.

Aww, I wish that shirt were the XL and the polo the L! I have been looking out for nice polos, but I prefer 8's in Lacoste and not sure about an orange one.

The engraving looks perfect for closet hanging or maybe above the closet door or something related. There's a few guys on the forum who might be interested in it, honestly - you see enough "visiting Napoli" stories it's possible. I think it's like the vintage shell care instructions I have framed in my closet above the shoes: great atmosphere/ephemera to liven up the space a bit.

BTW Mainy - possibly interested as well. Dibs on whatever's too big for csoukoulis and nataku. wink.gif

If you are old enough to work in real estate, you are old enough to post without resorting to abbreviations like a 13 year old girl texting her friends.

Me x 5. I've watched your stuff on ebay many a times and definitely would be interested in getting the down low.

16x37 shirts, 42L (or extra long) suits/sc's, 13 shoes.

Had a good day. Wasn't even going to go this afternoon, but it's become my Wednesday ritual.

Found a houndstooth Oxxford SC for Saks in 40s. Fits like a glove, no tailoring need. Couple of very small pulls in the wool along one arm, but it's not even noticeable unless you're looking for it. This is kind of a redemption find for me. Before I really had some semblance of what I was doing, I had passed up a few pairs of Oxxford wool trousers, not really knowing about it. Still bugs me to this day.

Got a khaki Barney's women's SC from italy for the mother in law.

Then, my favorite, a forest green (note: I'm pretty sure, but I am color blind, so I'll have to check with the misses) PRL wool(90%)/cashmere(10%) 3 roll 2 blazer w/ patch pockets. 38S and made in Italy. This thing is mint - The tag was still in the pocket. And the material is incredibly soft. Unfortunately, too small for me across the waist, so it's up for grabs.

I'll throw some pics up later tonight.

::EDIT:: I actually passed up 3 pairs of loafers from sebago (10.5-11 and narrow) and a harris tweed driving cap (tagged size 55, but I have no idea what that means, although it looked small).

::EDITx2:: Apparently, size 55 is metric for size 6 7/8 (approx. 21.5 inches)
