Picked up 2 Ferragamo ties this weekend. Already posted one but the other had to get some cleaning done.
Here it is: funky monkeys and birds in foliage. Very cool.

Bad:

Even with a bit of a patch-job on there, a Kiton Micron Jacket was still a good pickup at $15, right? Right...

 

Also my first time finding any of this guy's stuff:

 

Good:

Brunello Cucinelli Flat Front White Cotton Pants (56 Eu I believe - about a 40 waist)

 

100_2447.jpg

 

100_2448.jpg

Bad:

 

100_2419.jpg

 

A handful of stains (some not visible in pics) on the front. I figured I'd take a gamble and see what the dry cleaners and/or Oxyclean could do.

 

Good:

 

Borrelli Completely Unstructured Navy Blazer w/ Patch Pockets (44/46)

Bad

Tried in vain to get this out, but I don't think I'm going to make it work. Too bad, it's a great piece.

 

 

And finally, this is all good:

Lightweight Prada Navy Blue Suit (40r - my size so keeping)

Overall Cotton, a good day thrifting. Pity about the Borrelli though, perhaps you could look at some dyeing techniques? Just a thought. I would try to fix that jacket, it is potentially one of the better finds I have seen recently.
post #42456 of 138728

Went at lunch... Only pickup was a pair of Romano Martegani shoes, size 8... I hadn't heard of the brand, but they seem well made and they look like they've only been worn once. Black with an elongated chisel toe with brogueing, no cap. 

post #42457 of 138728
Just search SF. They are very well made shoes. May even have a second hand market.

Cotton Dockers, nice finds. Especially like that Prada suit.

Ugh. I've had that happen to me before in Charlotte. I'm assuming for weather (it's about to get a stormin' up here). Not a terrible airport to get stuck in, just not overnight (literally). If you need a place to sleep, I highly suggest the padded chairs near the baggage terminal on the lower floor. There's also a Starbucks up the stairs from there, so you won't go hungry or decaffinated.

I will send some along when I get home. I think I actualy have an identical pair of these already in the collection.

Went into the city for a couple of hours yesterday.  Found one consignment shop where Oxxfords and Brionis were as common as Bert Pulitzer 'round my parts.  None of them were in my size, and, most importantly, they were all outrageously priced.  ffffuuuu.gif

 

I did, however, find a few things, both in the city and the burbs.

 

NOT AVAILABLE:

 

Nordstrom olive camel hair

IMG_6949.JPGIMG_6951.JPG

 

BB jacket

IMG_6955.JPGIMG_6957.JPG

 

Paul Frederick (which I don't usually pick up, but it's linen/silk, side vented, ticket pocket, and fits me)

IMG_6962.JPG

 

Polo players!  Also, I'm a science teacher, so I couldn't resist.

IMG_6973.JPGIMG_6996.JPG

 

2 MTM shirts from a local maker, NWT PRL chambray spread collar shirt w/ MOP buttons

IMG_6974.JPGIMG_6975.JPG

 

Zegna FC, BB slim fit OCBD

IMG_6979.JPGIMG_6980.JPG

 

IMG_6992.JPGIMG_6993.JPG

 

Zanellas?

Prada - I'm guessing this is legit based on Cotton Dockers' last post.  Also, I'm guessing this is an orphan.

AVAILABLE:

 

I haven't measured anything yet, and everything's at the cleaners, so if you're interested, I'll have to wait on measurements.

 

side vented, really cool pattern, tagged 46S

IMG_6952.JPGIMG_6953.JPGIMG_6954.JPG

 

I don't normally pick these up, but this is side vented and linen/cotton and ALMOST fits me.  Plus it has that retina-burning pattern that is so devisive around here.

This is a first for me!  Tagged 56 EU.  Is it an orphan?  Thoughts?

IMG_6966.JPGIMG_6968.JPG

 

Either way, who cares?

Unfortunately, this is 4'' shog[1].gif

Another first!  J. Press - contrast collar, FC, 16-33.  Both need the "treatment" first.

Kind of a corduroy feeling to this one.
