All real, well done!

I believe they are Cherry Aldrichs. Thanks for calling this out guys. I still think it was a decent deal at $60.

thanks guys for authenticating the hermes for me!

I found this awhile ago and it's been driving me nuts that I haven't been able to find _any_ information about it. It's obviously super old and really rad, and I thought someone on here with their varied knowledge could tell me about it. I waffled back and forth about whether I should sell it or not, but usually end up keeping it for lack of knowledge.



Vintage (1960s?) minor league basketball warmup top. Team name is "The Crush"
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Name on the back of the jersey is "Wisdom," I couldn't make this stuff up.


Detail of the team logo. Super rad.

LOVE the little pink snail Hermes and that minor league jersey! Wish it was for a fatter guy... tongue.gif

A couple of shirts today.  Picked up a Brooks makers in french blue that fit perfectly.  Also got these:

 

Facconable with MOP buttons.  At least, I think they are. Buttons were cold using the lip test - either these are pearl, or every other shirt I own has pearl buttons. 

 

 

Also picked up a Hilditch & Key.

But the question is...did you do the lick test?

It's the only way to be sure.

Those are both solid looking shirts. I get so caught up hunting labels, I probably pass a ton of great beater shirts to actually wear frown.gif

One of the keepers is falling off, can i take this to a tailor and have it fixed? once again I know everyone is tired of these tie authentication requests so I apologize.

nice pattern, nice collar, and it looks super recent too. great pickup (per personal use, dunno about flipability) on that shirt. i love Faconnable shirts, anytime i see one in L it's an auto-grab for me. love their patterns, materials, buttons, etc.

Nothing crazy today. Passed on a pair of Incotex trousers made for some off-the-wall name. Didn't say Incotex anywhere but had all the hallmarks including the large rectangle label on the inside right back pocket. Double pleated, If they were flat front I would have grabbed them.

Here's the Oxxford SC I picked up yesterday,

I know Eddie Bauer isn't the most coveted name on SF, but I figured this was a steal at $65 (1/2 price sale) since I didn't want to splurge $400 for Sierra Design's throw-back 60/40 parka. This is basically a replica of their 1978 mountain parka and can be found at your local EB store. Stainless snaps and zipper, Talon zipper. Leather drawstring-stops, etc. Uses their old black/yellow label too. Really cool piece.

Some of them have that awful tag on the chest pocket though confused.gif Flippability of them isn't great, they will sell but you're looking at like 15-20 in my experience.
