Damnit, that's what I thought too. And that can't be fixed, correct?

 

But it's a BB 38 Short! What the hell!

Jacket is most certainly black, though some colors show it a bit warm due to using the house for some bounce fill. Seems like a decent piece right?

 

Measures approx:

P2P 20

Length 30.5

Sleeve 25ish

That's exactly my size. Sleeve length and all drool.gif.

THere isn't a collector market or some other odd SW&D market for this, right? Nataku? Bueller? Anyone? Do I need to go back and pick it up?

Any NOS (New Old Stock - basically anything old with the tags still attached) Pendleton stuff is worth grabbing unless it's women's. That stuff I'm not too sure about.

Not easily. 38 is the chest... shoulders are variable based on style / cut. 

 

That whole outfit with the hat was just screaming for a dog track backdrop.

Great work man, I missed it by about 10 minutes.  I now demand that you post everything you find like that.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Tie is thrifted and shirt was off SF B&S

 

 

About as good a fit as I can ask for without getting it tailored yet (need waist taken in for sure and right arm up a 1/2" I think).

 

Question...having never worn a vest, are the collar points suppose to be under the vest (like under the jacket collar) or over the vest?

post #42609 of 121377
Over the vest. I think a shorter collar or a differently shaped collar (e.g. cut) may serve you better, at least in regards to the suit posted above.

Agreed, thanks. Not a fan of the collar but was the shirt in front of me so tossed it on.

 

Also picked up a Fendi Suit (dual button peak lapel unvented) and a BBGF suit & a Ben Silver Tie for me. Oh yea and some shoe trees

I just bought this Sammy blazer on eBay. Thoughts? Lapels a bit wider than I'd like, but gorge is good, nice handwork on the lapels, and nice MOP buttons. Plus the measurements (if correct) are basically spot on for me.

It rubs the lotion on its skin, or it gets the shopping cart, I mean hose again.

Pretty sure GFT is defunct, dead since around 2005, if not well before. Plus, that's not their tag. Their tag was rectangular, sometimes green, white and black, sometimes black and white, but always with distinct little boxes with lots of information filled in. Like this:


Photobucket


Ahh, didn't know that, thank you for the clarification. I remember that tag well now.
