Brought home the Corneliani ID jacket today but dropped it off at the green cleaners to have two very faint spots removed.

 

I'm pretty sure someone here scored a coat very similar to it a few months back. Modern design fall/winter coat. Removable tab collar, and a removable zip up section that makes it look as if you have a light sweater on underneath. Mine is black,  97% wool 3% cashmere, and the sweater section was 70 wool 30 cashmere. Ticket pocket still shut, working cuff buttons, but only on the top two, the lower two on each sleeve are still shut. Side vents and all kinds of awesome. Similar to their current O-Jacket, except completely different.tounge.gif

 

Would keep it in a heartbeat if it fit, feels amazing. Euro 50R, available hopefully for trade?  Pics when it arrives back home tomorrow evening. (VLSI, I'll shoot those shoes you were interested in tomorrow along with the coat).

 

This shop appears to be an odd honey hole, gonna have to go back regularly now. I pulled Brioni, MiuMiu, Collezioni etc from the racks, only to put them back for various flaws (One shirt appeared to have had the treatment done, the buttons were totally etched). The prices were above average thrift, but not completely unreasonable if something nice jumped out. They also seemed to have a shit ton of regulars, store employees knew half the customers by name. One middle eastern Jackie-O looking lady came in, kept the sunglasses on, and was led to the fresh rack I had just pillaged. "Oh we got in Miu Miu and Burberry and things you'll like" and then the employee looked at me as I held back the cheshire cat grin with all of it in hand. What was I supposed to do, they parked the rack in front of me when I was going over the jacket.

What size are those Oxxfords? biggrin.gif

Nataku always comes through, you are an asset to SF. I really bought the Jackets because they looked like they had some quality to them. They have a "Robertson Stephens" patch on the sleeves, which after doing a little research was a huge investment bank that help start companies like "Mapquest, E-Trade, and retailer Bebe". Pretty interesting.....

I believe the oxxfords are all custom with striped interior lining. They look to be around a 42 R but not 100% sure.

Glad to help as always! I've seen a few pieces over the years. It seems scarce here in the states. Sounds like a cool piece with the Robertson Stephens patch.

If they're a 42-44 ish I may be interested. smile.gif

Just got back from 5 days in Dallas.

Didn't have time to hit even a single thrift! cloud.gif

Did Spoo hit 20K yet?

Did anyone get any free shirts in the mail?

I dunno.

Being of Canadian heritage, I was thinking I might pair them with my Canadian flag cufflinks--wear a Mountie on one sleeve and the red-and-white maple leaf on the other. Especially on Canada Day, which, sadly, has already passed.

Don't worry, I hear they are doing one again next year. I should have those out today, and I'll send tracking info tonight.
