I only hope that AlanC, wherever he lands, finds stores as good as what KC apparently offers. A stand-up guy and a pleasure to buy from, as has been my honor. If there were a Hall of Fame for this sort of thing, he'd be an inaugural member.

I don't suppose any of you gent's has a Hemes scarf lying around that you would like to part with? I've been looking at getting one for my wife as a wedding present but I'm wary of buying one off ebay for fear of ending up with a fake.

Anyone know much of Domenico Vacca Alta Sartoria? There were several shirts with that label that I left behind the other day that were obviously from the same donor as the rest of my haul. And 1 Armani collezioni. All striped in a similar fashion to the others.

Does anyone know when Burberry's changed to Burberry? This blazer has a Burberry's fabric tag in the left breast pocket, which I haven't seen on any of the older pieces I've come across. Any input would be appreciated.

1999 was the last year for Burberrys
2000 became Burberry

I would guess your blazer to be 1999 just before the change because of the font style on the label.
I love the Prosum buttons too. Nice touch.

Thats odd as the only Richemont I know is the parent company that owns Cartier, etc. Its an LVMH company... which I don't think Burberry is a part of.

edit - NVM, that logo is for a mens clothing company, Richemont would never use a font like that smile.gif

Dude, my sympathies. Moving is right up there with death on the fun list.

That blazer looks pretty sweet.  Its got to be right near the label switch date, and I wouldn't doubt its authenticity because you can see some quality even in the pictures.  I've never seen anything like it, nice buy.

Too many clothes? I'm not sure that makes sense. Too little closet space I understand though.

Are the CJs UK sizing?

Afaik, CJ use E/F/G for the European market. The only US-marked CJ-shoes I have are branded CJ for Barney's (10D's, I'm a 9UK with high vamps). My bet is on the US size.

+100000000000, and you know what's even worse than moving books? Fucking records, most people don't realize how heavy they are when you've got them together in a box.

MoL - Dig is right. You're a wealth of information, thanks!

Spoo - Richemont is the nicest boutique in my city. Classy men like yourself frequent it, and I pick up their leftovers haha.

The size/maker tag is ripped out. Any knowledge of who made for Burberry in the late 90s?

edit - looks to be Belvest, but confirmation would be great.

Much too big for me, so it's available for sale/trade. Double vented if it wasn't clear from the photos. Measures out to around a 43 L with S status arms...

Chest: 22.5
Shoulders: 20.5
BoC: 32
Sleeves: 23.5 + 2

I have 2 Hermes scarves in my possession.

Has anyone heard of the brand Eckerle from Germany? I couldn't leave this thing at the GW yesterday, especially since it was one of the yellow tagged half off specials. It's double vented, super 120s (E Thomas) and pretty badass imo. It's measures out to about a 40R...I will literally send this to someone for the cost of shipping. Somebody should be rocking this.
