I probably have 30 - 40 Harris Tweed jackets in the basement waiting for the fall but this was my first hat.. Is there a name for this type of hat?

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif - I was on that same quest a while ago and gave in and got a pair of Park Aves on eBay.

I don't know but that is the brand of my first ever non navy blazer sport jacket, many many years ago bought from Harrods, a nice Harris tweed. It was an excellent jacket which served me well. Dunn and Co. used to be an expensive brand then.

Picked up a zegna silk/cotton shirt and pair of RRL chinos today.

Also got a made in Italy Bobby Jones polo, size L. Someone here was looking for them right? Available at cost if you plan to wear, solid dark burgundy, pics to come

Passed on some pretty cool Made in USA LL Bean duck boots and a HF navy pinstripe suit in 44R (middle age label, not recent, not ancient).

What size are the chinos? I've been on the lookout for some RRL chinos (or epaulet rivet chinos, but those don't show up in thrifts)

post #38289 of 110490

I just got sniped AGAIN! I hate ebay. You guys use Gixen, right? Time to go over to the dark side, I guess.

 

I'll take solace in the fact that this Isaia silk/linen AAAC pickup is in the mail right now:

30x32, grendel. Too small for me, that's for sure.

I use Baygenie and have had pretty good luck with it.

How about a third?

I've been holding this PRL for months and it seems that I won't be turning into a selling machine like you guys so someone make me an offer. I'm easy. I think the spots should come out with some TLC.

I've also got this Gieves & Hawkes DB by Hickey Freeman. I love it but my seamstress says "NO. Too big to alter."

They'll fit me though! If the G-man takes a pass, get at me, bro!
post #38294 of 110490

This worth $25? Looked fairly new to me. Tag said 52 (42US?) so it won't fit me. Sorry for the crap pictures. It's more of a dark navy. I can go back if anyone wants it.

Also, this is one of my favorite thrift purchases ever.
