I actually saw one the other day at some "antique mall/ junk" store. One of the sellers had some clothing and the nicest suit was Hickey Freeman Bespoke. It didn't fit me so I left it but I was curious b/c I had never seen that label "bespoke" before w/ HF. Anyone know about this?

I came across a suit & tux which I sold on eBay. They were both from a higher end department store. My guess is that's their MTM sold at your better stores

I saw HF bespoke today for the first time, too. Passed on it, because it was a huge orphaned jacket.

Curse you guy who makes sure suits are separated at the Goodwill, two recent model orphaned HF Madison suit jackets, in staple colors none the less, one navy blue, one charcoal grey. New enough that the pockets were still sealed shut, grrrr. Spent an hour going through all the pants, men's and women's alike trying to find the pants. No luck. I picked up the navy blue, and will probably swap out the buttons and fool myself into think it is not an orphan jacket.

To make it all better though picked up a Brooks Brothers "silver label" hand tailored cashmere/wool suit in light grey.

From what I could find this evening, that's exactly what HF Bespoke is.

Wow - that cabinet is a work of art! I'm willing to bet there were some minty Blue Note LPs in there at one point...

Nice score on the other stuff too. Who's the maker of the lambskin jacket?

Jesus, what a trip today. What started as me getting a replacement license ended up being me finding out I had an unpaid fix it ticket that I now have to go to court for, and I got pulled over on the way BACK from GW to get another fix it ticket for my insurance papers being missing (which I assume fell out of my glove compartment when my car was broken into as I've never had a reason to take it out of my car), but I digress.

Good news and bad news. The bad news, some of the shirts were gone. Didn't see the Borelli, and one of the others. Good news: picked up the Canali and THREE T&As (found another). Also picked up a Luciano Barbera Turtleneck, kind of small . There are some slight marks whose origins I can't quite tell, trying to figure out now if they will come out with a dry cleaning or not, but I'll be taking it back if no one is interested and they don't.

Also grabbed another RL PL short sleeve.linen shirt that can fit me, not from the same guy, some slight staining, gonna see if I can do the method to get it out before I decide on selling or keeping. Couldn't leave it there for five bucks.

Some things I left: The RL PL black shirt I mentioned had some slight white marks under arms, couldn't tell if they were deodorant or not but I didn't grab it. If someone in that size (L or 16/41) is interested still I can grab it. Left the brown Dolce and Gabanna mainline shirt since no one seemed interested. Fiantelli? from Barneys, Italian Made, definitely from Borelli guy that the rest of these shirts came from. Also a short sleeve, white Zegna Su Misura shirt that I think I'm going to buy after just googling it and realizing it's his MTM line (I'm literally googling it as I type this, I feel like an ass right now), also likely from the same 16/41 guy. That Givenchy suite was also like a charcoal brown, double breasted and $50, so I figured whoever asked about that wasn't interested. Finally, kind of expensive, but Italian size 6 Dolce & Gabanna black leather shoes for $100, definitely worth it if one's in the market for them. They are one of their more popular, high end models, can't remember the name atm. Will snap a pick next time if anyone is interested.

Have a splitting headache between dealing with cops, multiple GWs and law school apps so apologies for the bad pics, I'll get back to anyone interested in the shirts tomorrow. Here's a few pics and a link to the album they are in.

TL: DR Here's some pics of cool shirts, went back and grabbed the T&As and Canali for whoever was interested (Striped red is french cuffs style, other two are three button T&A style)..

Dolce and Gabbana are a luxury fashion label, never leave this kind of stuff on the rack. Even if nobody here wants it, eBay would ensure you tripled or quadripled your money on it. If that Dolce and Gabbana is sized 17.5 - 18, get it for me if condition is good wink.gif

that would make the most sense really... it's MTM but certainly not bespoke. Thx.

NM you were talking about the shirt... shoes for $100 seem expensive as they only go for about $100 on the bay peepwall[1].gif

Almost positive Lady Gaga is decked out in Versace (as well as a really cool silk shirt) in this video. I've always wondered where one would wear something like that. I guess our answer is in a pop music video. laugh.gif



Heard my wife listening to it on the computer and came in saying "Hey, that's a pretty catchy tune....wait a minute, that silk shirt looks like Versace. Wait, that pendant looks like a Medusa head!"

Dolce and Gabbana shoes for $100 is a rip off. Unless they are new in box, maybe worth it.
