3 Button, Ticket Pocket, Lapel Button Thread, Surgeon Cuffs, Double Vent. About a 40S...see measurements.


Hicks & Sons used to have an address on Saville Row - at least sometime around the 40's and early 50's.

I know this because I once found like 15 suits and smokings from H&S and they all belonged to a Danish consulate, who happened to end up in London because he had went to England on holiday just before the war started (WWII) and he had to stay there for quite some time because he didn't want to return to Denmark, which was occupied by the Germans.

His name was in all the suits and I did a background check on him. He had died a couple of months earlier and there were mentions of him in some of the bigger news papers in Denmark.

I never bought any of the suits. I sort of hoped, that someone would buy them and truly appreciate the old-world tailoring craftsmanship.

Damn.  Definitely too narrow (I've got some B's that juuuuuust barely work slash don't really work but I refuse to let them go because they're my only pair of shell).  Shame, I really like them....if you see others in C-D range, please kop.

No problem, I always kop the Hanovers in decent shape. They sit on the thrift shelves around here forever otherwise....I guess everyone is so used to seeing them. Anyway the quality is usually very good. Its a shame they went down in the 80s. You can tell the folks who made them cared about what they were doing.

Nothing much today...had a pair of Allen Edmonds "Stanton" in my hands and this older guy was looking at shoes...so I gave them to him. They were practically new so hopefully I can get some karma off that.

 

 

Otherwise, just a pair of black J. Press herringbone pants. Flat-front, size 38x32. 1.5" cuffs, 44" outseam.

Available pretty much at cost+shipping if anyone's interested.

Yeah, I've handled a few pair that weren't my size and they definitely seem like decent quality shoes.

I dont' think it has been recognized yet, but, I been had 10.5 E. Right?

Speaking of cool art finds, my girlfriend's mom was picking through some of her parents' stuff as they prepared for a garage sale. She picked out a huge (6X6 ft I'd guess) painting and bought it from them - she's a recreational painter and canvasses that big are hard to come by. She decided to hold on to it and hung it up in a hallway, where someone commented on it saying they thought it might be worth some money. Apparently it's a work by noted Southern painter and former Rhodes College professor Mary Sims, a local art dealer appraised it at 10 grand!

I read the post, but was so involved in the first sentence I completely forgot to read the second and respond. You guys will be the first to know whenever I find anything.
