The ones that are made in the USA are made by HF. Some are made other places... I swapped for a G&H made in Italy DB navy blazer that was made by Belvest.

Interesting. I don't think I even looked in that area--I'll have to check.

Just my opinion, so take it for what its worth...about nothing, but I would toss a sheet over that bright red coca-cola sign (or take it down for pictures) if you are going to use these for ebay. It is really really distracting.

I'm not looking for any compensation with bike parts since he's doing it for charity in an area that really needs it. I would, however, like to show him I'm serious and would like first pick at some of the more rare items that he gets in.

Yes, it is magnificent. I think the following answer answers your question pretty well:

That horizontal line across the chest also makes it outerweary to me. The only time I've seen that on a regular jack has been on made-in-the-Middle-East for Middle East customers. Seems to be popular there.

Ah, damn. Finding one made by Belvest would have made it even a little sweeter.

+1 That is extremely distracting. White background. Probably need the light source a bit higher as the shadows on the shoulders are fairly dark.

That flight back from Malaysia almost killed me, but I'm back (and yes, I resisted buying any "genuine copy" Rolex watches from Chinatown, though my boss gobbled them up).

 

On my first thrifting run back on American soil, I picked up a few records for my collection, along with these khaki pants that actually fit. Of course, someone had cut out the content tag (why the hell do people insist on doing that?). My first Zegna trousers, though, so that's cool, right?

And I've got a question for the women's clothing experts:

 

For the ladies (Click to show)

 

BCBG is a well-known brand, right? But this is an old label, I guess. I picked this up because it looked well made, but I don't know anything about it. My wife has been looking for a toggle coat, but the minute I picked it up, I knew it was too big for her. Any info on this?

Haven't posted in a while, since things have been dry.  Have picked up a few things.

 

A semi-recent Samuelsohn tuxedo in my size.  Some nice shirts - Canali, Charles Tyrwhitt, BB woven in Italy, & HF.  

 

I also picked up my first Charvet tie, which is a little beat up due to GW tying it and hanging it on a rack for who knows how long.  I think it was Spoo who recent commented on their knots, and he wasn't wrong.  This thing makes the best knot I've ever tied without me doing anything different.  Practically tied itself.

 

I also picked up some shirts with the hope of making them work, but, alas, they were all too big/small for me.

 

AVAILABLE:

 

Faconnable linen shirt (tagged L), Canali (tagged 15, seems about 32 sleeve)

Agree. Am huge fan of the Coke Cola but distracting from the jacket. Sure they love the free advertising though.

Interesting find yesterday. A Balenciaga Paris shirt. It fit me well, so it is a keeper.

please explain the appeal/fashion justification for this
http://www.ebay.com/itm/RaRe-Energie-Italy-Cotton-Blend-Sheer-Shirt-15-5-x-35-/290559148003

It appears as if someone was murdered in it, or perhaps one of those anti theft dye tags exploded.

The term "fresh paint" comes to mind
