I sold that jacked up one for $70. Should be delivered shortly. Patiently waiting for the buyer to yell at me for the damage...
post #37968 of 112183
Too bad about the moth hole. My guess is, it's not worth the re-weave. If you're patient, you should be able to find that same jacket for no more than $75 on the bay or AAAC (likely closer to $50), and I suspect a re-weave could get very pricey. I have that same jacket--looks great and fits like a dream. It was stained with some type of black, sticky substance when I found it at SA, so I waited until it was on 49-cent clearance, rolled the dice and came up a winner: My cleaner got it spotless and, for once, properly pressed a 3/2 sack (he's learning). It's a real staple.

Classic union made BB blazer, 40R. Three roll two, single vent and just about fit me...didn't realize the glaring moth hole in the shoulder (and another one on a sleeve) until I got it home shog[1].gif Anyone know a decent reweaver in upstate NY?

Another BB classic in 40R, but definitely a slimmer fit than today's 40R from them. Quarter lined brown tweed single vent. Love this lapel roll. Bit big, so available.

100% cashmere tie by Les Copains. Research says it looks to be manufactured by Zegna. It's just a knit, not a grenadine, right?

Picked up this really sweet Orvis 100% cotton (THICK knit) quarter zip sweater today. Kind of military / commando style, XL, mint condition. Normally don't buy orvis stuff but I thought this was really cool. Available

Correct on that not being a grenadine.  I don't even think there are cashmere grenadines as grenadine is specifically a silk knit.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

 

And +1 to what Pnut said about the holey BB. It's a nice staple trad jacket, but you'll run into a hole-free one soon enough.  I would try and avoid purchasing moth hole-ridden garments altogether unless you are looking at a top of the line item (Kiton, Brioni, Attolini, etc.) or really want the piece for yourself and are willing to invest the $20-40 per hole.

Sorry I haven't responded to your pm yet. I have about 20 unread from the past day.

I sold about 50 of them in a few hours, but a combination of the thread being pissy, having not enough remaining variety among shirts, and realizing its f@&$ing difficult to coordinate and ship off that many shirts in my current living situation led me to end the deal.

Sorry man

Since I can't get the damn spoiler to work below the post anymore, I will apparently be using it at the top of each post from now on.

Cool! They seemed to be well made and the completed auctions search I did showed them selling well.
