Yea, but the sleeves at the cuffs are shreaded too, too much work, me thinks. On a similer note, has anybody put gold buttons on a glan plaid sport coat before? I've got two BB jackets, one's tan and one's glen plaid. I'm thinking the glen plaid could look cool with those sheep buttons. Thoughts?

Hit up a few stores, but only picked this up.

I did pass up a couple of choice suits (I'm trying to get rid of stuff before I buy any more), which I'd be happy to proxy if anyone's interested.

 

PRL DB navy blue chalkstripe flannel - Made in USA, side vented, tagged 41R, pants - 36W, $30

PRL DB charcoal flannel w/ purple (I think) pinstripes - Made in USA, side vented, tagged 41R, pants 36W, $30

 

Oxxford solid navy blue - side vented, about a 44R, 38 (or 40) pants waist & 28 (or 29) inseam, $21

Oxxford charcoal w/ purple pinstripes - "Hand made in Chicago" (MTM?), side vented, working cuffs, about a 44R, pants 38 (or 40)W & 28 (or 29) inseam.  This thing was seriously sick, though it had a small rip in the jacket lining and a small hole on the back.  Seemed like a fixer-upper, so I passed. $21

What size is that Chester Barrie? drool.gif

 

The solid Oxxford is definitely worth picking up. If it was a 41R like the others I'd be throwing money at you to go pick it up for me. lol8[1].gif

Solid Oxxford suit for $21... go back and but it! Someone here will want it and if not you just made a c-note on ebay in 15 minutes easy! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifI'd leave all the PRL and other so so stuff and always pick up Oxxford, Brioni, etc etc

Props to Xenos for an absolutely killer deal on an amazing Marienella tie (my first!!).  Now I see what all the hype is about.  Fantastic tie.

 

More props to Dolfan954 for some pretty much pristine J. Crew suede wingtips...another thing I've been looking for for quite awhile.  It was his first trade so I hope he's happy with the results.  Very generous and fair guy.

 

And last but not least, Ocooney once again proves why he's the absolute man.  Huntsman suit and 2 awesome ties for a song of a price.  This guy is just beyond generous.

 

These dudes are all awesome sellers/traders and everyone should hook them up.  Thanks fellas. 

 

Right back at you Andro. Thanks for throwing in a couple surprises too.

I've only once found a nice vintage Pierre Cardin piece. It was a paisley shirt from the late 60's. Had long, rounded collars, concealed button placket, MOP buttons and side gussets. From then on, I knew that at one point PC stuff was really nice. That was about 6 years ago. Today, I stumbled upon this beauty. I'd date this to the mid-late 60's. Charcoal gray with purple pinstripes. Double breasted 6/3 front. Single vent. Ticket pocket. Has a good amount of handwork. Trousers have a split curtain waistband. Flat front, no cuffs. Super nice. Sadly, it's a couple sizes too small for me so it's available.

Chester Barrie is 40R, but it fits me, so . . .

Yeah, I know the Oxxfords are worth a pick up, but I've trying to buy less stuff that doesn't fit me.  Mainly because I hate eBay and had some concerns about the one that I noted.

Yeah, I was going to suggest some tartan tuxedo pants. I'm thinking of getting a pair this winter for a change of pace with my tux as well.

I'll skip the kilt, but interesting idea on the tartan tux pants.. never even knew of such a thing. Can these be worn formal?

One more reason I should move to LA for thrifting.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505245_162-57478151/neiman-marcus-closes-a-store-in-minneapolis/

ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

There is only one other store in Minneapolis that carries nice menswear (Oxxford, Zegna, etc). NM is the only store in Minnesota that carries Brioni, Isaia, Kiton, Fray, etc. Of course there's plenty still out there to be donated, but I'm speaking long term (5-10 years down the road). I hope Saks Off Fifth sticks around even though the main Saks store ditched us several years ago. baldy[1].gif

^^^ That jacket appears to have the old vintage white logo on a black background label.  1950s or 1960s?  You should check the Union Label to see what you've actually got there...

Yes, they're Scottish...I believe they are called trews (sp?). I admire the look and I have some formal occasions that I don't care too much about this winter/spring, so I thought I'd add them to my black tux jacket. I'll try to dig up some pictures to give you an idea, but I think RLPL made them at one point and they're the ones I'm picturing in my mind.
