Found a vintage Aquascutum Aqua 5 Mac (Made in England) in about a size 40-42 (available).

If Dr Phil is 46XL in suit coats and blazers I am interested. You should also note that the Xlong sizes actually sell quite well.

Found this particular leather jacket by Ralph Lauren at a steal price. I believe it's called the Bradford jacket and retailed for $695. I wore it once and I realized that the fit of it just isn't for me. If anyone's interested in buying it off me, please shoot me a message. It's a size medium and in amazing condition. No bad odor, stains, etc.

That's EXACTLY what I wanted to wear over my dinner suit. A size or so too large for me.


Too big for me as well but it was on a rack all by itself and was calling to me, "Tom, my owner gave me up for adoption after multiple years of service, I am sad, alone, need a friend and a good home. Can you take me in?"

Can we ad Lanvin to this list along with YSL and Dior? Or should it be a separate sub-topic.

So you are telling me I should have picked up that lot of Donna Karan Couture. Not Saint Andrews but Martin Greenfield isn't shabby either. facepalm.gif

whats the danger in wearing an orphaned suit jacket as an SC - I do it all the time (the pants to most of them tucked safely in my closet - and not actually orphaned).  Folks seem to spend a lot of time worrying about it, and I'm wondering what I'm missing. 

Quote:
Oxxford and Southwick. Both mine. Please don't tell me the Oxxford is orphaned. its got to be the most recent Oxxford I've found. No lapel hole check the buttons. Can anyone date this? The Southwick is old and has a few moth holes but fits amazingly and it exactly the check pattern I was looking for.

Just wanted to vouch for Dahl5yankees as a solid trader and person. Great, mutually beneficial trade accomplished this week.

No doubt....that is a Lanvin. Hard to miss as they seem to have their name everywhere on that tie.

How come this thread doesn't have a Lanvin expert?

Oh yeah, these were big boys.  Now they didn't say "Dr. Phil wore these pants" on the inside, but they were high quality in a big size from a place where he's been known to donate a thing or to.

I'll see if I can check back today and get a more accurate measurement.

That's funny, I passed over that same Barba the other day when I saw the hole in the elbow. I hate when that happens, so close!

My favorite shirt I own is a Barba Napoli.  Easily the best fit I have since they seem to dart their shirts...and the detail work on it is fantastic.  Great shirtmakers.

A LANVIN tie, my bad, thought it was an ELVIN tie from Lord of the Rings! lol

 

Won't happen again.

What does the MG pocket tag look like in a Donna Karan jacket (mind taking a picture next time)?

 

The only one I've ever seen was this one from a jacket I sold....Photobucket

Shameless plug for the trading spread sheet.

I finally got around to adding a couple of items to it, as well as adding it to my sig. Everyone go and do likewise.
