I like mine... has a lot of quality touches like the pocket flap fabric lining up, and the pocket binding being pinstripes across rather than just plain... pickstiching etc

If you run into any of those in a 40S or 40R in a navy or any other SC colors, at least 1/2 canvassed, please let me know. I actually like them. Thanks.

Unless it's their LBM 1911 line which is becoming well known

Apologies to everyone that asked about the Corneliani Linea Sartoria jacket measurements. The driver that was taking me home and myself got rear ended by a Tahoe on the way back from Sleep no More (WHICH, HOLY SHIT GUYS LOOK IT UP AND THEN FLY TO NY AND EXPERIENCE THIS). I'll try to get some later today for sure as well as better pictures.

Lubiam 1911 not flipping? Yeah, that's an understatement. This sweet-as-hell 44 R pure silk number sat on ebay for a while with no interest at all. I was practically giving it away. It never sold, so now it's sitting in my closet.

I have seen a lot of Lubiam 1911 stuff, usually pass because it isn't my size, but the stuff IMO is really nice and they have some pretty cool patterns/designs.

Trying this again, don't think my post from before went through.  I've been lurking on the forums, trying to do some learning. So far in the GWs I've hit I've found a few good staple shirts that filled some holes in my wardrobe.  Nothing amazing, but will certainly work until it is replaced with higher quality items.

I've also purchased about 20 dior ties and anything I can find with a YSL label.

 

I think this is the best thing I have found so far, thoughts?

tried to put the tag pics in here, couldn't figure out how to get pics in the spoiler.  Any tips?

^ HF is usually very good quality and construction, but that label looks pretty old to me. as much as dudes in suits like to masturbate to the idea of "enduring style" and "timeless yadda yadda," an old suit tends to look old (outliers notwithstanding) and is more likely to be dry-cleaned to death, heavily worn, etc. there's a thread or google doc floating around somewhere with pictures of all the HF labels, that'll give you an idea of what HF labels to look for.

There's a place across the street from my work called the Haberdashery that sells Lubiam blazers, I go into there to fondle them from time to time, but alas even on sale they run upwards of $400, too rich for my blood. But what's that you say? You found a cray cray one in my size? lurker[1].gif
post #38966 of 118241
I just want to give a shout out to everyone whom I've gotten stuff from or traded with over the last couple months. I'm not going to name names because the list is too long. You know who who you are. You guys fucking rock!!!!! Everyday is like Christmas at my house with Santa being replaced by the postman. happy.gif

:::EDIT FOR SNARK::: Welcome. These are typically not brag-worthy in the slightest, except for very limited circumstances. This gets said about every other week. Most of it is simply licensed.

It's super old. Probably pre-1980s. If it works for you, glad you dig it.

Thanks for the info on the HF, it seems to be in good condition and it is the first sportcoat I have owned that has some silk in it.  I'll rock it for a while. I was really digging another SC I found until I got it home and noticed a small hole on the back just below the collar. Sucks.

 

The dior ties and YSL comment was just to prove I've been reading the thread.  Haven't actually picked any up.

I guess I was thrown off by the word "purchased." Internet jokes, heh.

Then to another GW closer to the ballpark and an EPIC, EPIC, EPIC find:

It's a rust brown with green and brown window pane and is a 40S

IMAG1124.jpg

But, you may ask, why is this EPIC?

 

Looking at the buttons, they looked kinda like  plastic and I thought I could replace them with horn, but upon further inspection:

 

IMAG1146.jpgIMAG1144.jpg

 

14K GOLD BUTTONS!!!!!

 

Their marked Lindsay 14K on one end and 14K on the other. A little sleuthing turned up Lindsay & Co. of New York http://lindsayco.com/ and their on line catalog. There are matching cuff links on page 20, but the buttons are on page 32. Called the company and the sales rep said that the buttons are solid 14K gold (have 2 jacket and 4 cuff buttons) and the retail replacement cost for the jacket buttons at a jeweler is around $700-$1000 each and the cuff buttons about $400-$500 each.

 

 

For some reason I don't think the buttons are gonna stay on the jacket! Will have to consult the wise one, SPOO, and see if the "clothing" value of the jacket with gold buttons would be worth more than the value of the buttons.

 

 

Gold Buttons, Thanks for all the comments, you just get lucky now and then. Anyone have insight into selling gold buttons, let me know.
 
Went back to the same store yesterday, maybe the guy had a pair of jackets, but no luck. In another GW did pick up a Pal Zileri, like new button down gray shirt with a flap pocket, box pleat . If you have LONG arms, this is for you, marked 16 1/2, 42. 
Measure to a 17x38. Available

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

PTP 25, neck 16.75, Sleeve from seam 27, from middle back 38, shoulder 22, length 32

 

Could trade for a similar type shirt in 16 1/2 x 32 SLIM FIT
