Hey guys,

I have a overcoat at home with a Zegna tag like this one. Any idea what year(s) it would have been from?

I've only come across one in the wild, here's the tags,



they look completely different, but that's not to say one's older and one's newer, so I guess this post doesn't help at all. facepalm.gif

Actually, now that I look at it again, the maker tag has the same font, just on a different colored tag, but the content tag is different.

What would you guys do in this case -

A) Punt and return shirts to the shop in the interest of getting at least some of my monies back.

B) Keep shirts and attempt to sell them with the faint stains, of course mentioning them up front in the auctions.

C) Cut them up and have them sewn into unitards, sign up for exercise classes with Richard Simmons.

D) Wrap them around handle of samurai sword and commit seppuku at GW in the hopes of getting an RG shirt named after me.

Really depends how much you have into them, but 99% B

By my estimation, folks are being conservative in fit. That is at least two sizes too big, maybe even three. It depends on how you like to fit, but contemporary style calls for a relatively close body fit. I would guess you would fit the SZ 42 - 44 area. Jacket appears to have had some pre-waist-suppression done before hand as well, which may help you sell it as well. Lots of broad shouldered chaps with big chests and narrower waists.

Sell the jacket dude. I hope it came with slacks so it could be a full suit. Super find though, keep up the good work!

People are being too nice. It does not fit, not even close. Sell it, make $$$, use money to buy something nice that fits. Easy as warm apple pie mwink[1].gif

That was all from a few days ago. Today I hit a motherlode for bigger guys. 3 Samuelsohn 50L suits, 1 HF 48L suit, and 4 pairs of Zanella 42-44 pants in staple colors.

There were 2 other very nice HF suit coats there but I couldn't find the matching pants. I'll try back this weekend. 

 

Friendly advise: With super nice photos like that, the jackets look like crap nest.gif Spend the $50 (or thirft one) and get a steamer. Takes 30 seconds per jacket once you have it set up before you take the pictures to get all the wrinkles out. Makes the jacket look 100x (this is not an exageration) better! Best money you will every spend.

Spoo as a band geek. Never expected that.

Coop, looks nice. But...
How tall are you? I wonder if you wouldn't do better with a longer jacket. Something about the way it pulls at the button doesn't look like a jacket too tight, looks like a button that is too far above your natural waist. The skirt doesn't look like it comes down quite far enough either. Just my 2c.

- The guys go to grandpapa's house, he smokes weed and his dog talks to him.
Helluva film, must put on my watch list again smile.gif
It probably says something about my mind that I remember the dodgy bits LOL. Mind you, the flute has got me fascinated now.

uhhh, how do you forget this scene from American Pie? (I won't take the time to put the "good" pics under a spoiler.)

I am 97% certain you have combined "Road Trip" and "American Pie" buddy.

Thanks, I agree. Anyone got advice on a good one? I've read reviews of several that they break pretty often. I've only ever seen one in a thrift and it wouldn't turn on when I plugged it in. ffffuuuu.gif

I found success on craigslist finding mine. I use a Jiffy J2 Steamer. It is ugly as sin, but has worked great for steaming casual clothes I do not feel like ironing. Gets HOT quick, too. Steamers also save a ton of money if you are like me and send suits to the dry cleaners just to be pressed.

 

I "think" Jiffy and Rowenta both have some decent steamers with Conair falling a bit below in quality, yet more commonly found.

 

Edit: Jiffy has the J2000 now, which looks almost identical but has a MUCH nicer and easier looking water container.

I picked up the Go Mini from Bed, Bath, & Beyond for $20. It's the one people say sometimes breaks on them, but for $20, I decided to give it a shot. I've only used it a little bit, but so far I like it. No problems, and I like that it has an actual on/off switch.

Good point. I hadn't noticed that until you pointed it out. I'm just under 6 feet, and I've tried on the occasional 44L or 46L. They're almost always too long for me.

I'm in your shoes exactly. I have a mix of regulars and longs in my closet, and frequently get comments about my jackets being too short in the WAYWT threads. I've just decided to live with it.

Some recent stuff. Nothing amazing, but useful.

 

No label, brown cashmere sweater. N/A

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Eddie Bauer flannel board shirt (kinda-it's very thick). N/A

 

 

 

Bass brown suede bucks, dainite sole. 10.5

I know these aren't great but I've needed something like this for winter and they've hardly been worn. 10.5 is a bit large for me but I'll can make them work.

Willing to trade these for something similar in a 9.5.
