My first Saville Row piece...dunno if it's bespoke or if it was part of a suit.  Bummer about the small stain in the right sleeve lining, but I think the cleaners could take it out?

This last one is a YSL Made in France.  I believe it is a 3 piece suit, minus the pants, which I couldn't find anywhere in the store.  I haven't heard much buzz about YSL, especially not the mid-80s, 90s suits.  This one isn't particularly offensive, is vented, and has a nipped waist for a more tailored look.  Any thoughts on pants to find to make it a complete suit?

Oh yeah, and this Barbera FC 16 1/2

 

DSCN2034.JPG

 

Could anyone help me decipher that Gieves & Hawkes tag...I'd like to know if I did in fact miss the pants...maybe the same with the Canali.

 

 

 

 

Apologies for the double post, but I think this got lost due to moderation.

Any of the size small or 36R/S persuasion? If so, would anyone be willing to proxy me one? Thought about getting a Gant jacket during the Bonobos cyber monday deal, but they were sold out of all the smalls.

That's interesting. I just read an article about some Bloomingdales closing in the NoVa area. Wonder if any of their stuff will make its way into the TJ Maxx/Marshalls around here.

It was on clearance for $169.00. The original tag read $498.00 and I am not sure what the compare at price was. Competitive price, but too rich for my blood.

I can't find anything about a brand called that. I keep getting stuff for an investment mogul named Kirk Kerkorian (wikipedia says he likes expensive clothes from Brioni, but nothing about him having his own line or who makes it).
post #22302 of 103033
Yeah, the size tag looks like I should know it - if anyone recognizes that'd be cool. Its a nice suit, I may pick it up anyway. . Thanks for looking!

I went back to the salvation army today to see if the Alden balmorals were still there. They were!

...in the hands of someone else. Seriously, I was about 5 minutes too late. oh well. Consolation prices EZ shirts x3, lorenzini shirt, BB cable knit merino polo, Gant Hopsack, RRL NWT jeans, florsheim wingtips in my size, hickey freeman italian sport shirt and partially lined plaid blazer. I'll put pics up later tonight.

I went to TJ Maxx and there was some decent stuff there, none of which I got. Navy Purple Label tie, gold paisley Purple Label tie, a completely unstructured Made in Italy PRL linen blazer, and a PRL dress shirt that was unlike any Polo shirt I've seen before, with awesome, thick mother of pearl buttons, a spread collar and European size tag.

Oh, and mixed with all the cheap cashmere was a Johnstons of Elgin scarf.
