I would say no... unless very, very old.

 

Here are two that I have come across. Notice the "Made in France" and "100% SOIE" on the right and left of "Lanvin" in the labels below.

Wow, great day all around. DM7, as usual, worship.gif But others had fantastic days as well.

I hit one store I'd never hit before. Came recommended by some other thread members in my area. As we all know, this game is hit or miss, and today I missed.

1 croc-embossed calf belt by Trafalgar. Worse for the wear, and it has a pointy metal-y tip. But at half off a ridiculous price, it was worth it.
1 vintage Jaeger tweed SC. Yeah, I know, but they seem to do well on Ebay. Dual vent with high gorge. Will probably measure to about a 41, on the short side of Reg.

Both available if anyone's interested.

On a side note, they had several pairs of braces. Some seemed nice, but, other than a Coach pair (that was missing one of the fasteners), none seemed to have brand names. How does one tell if it's Trafalgar? I check the brass hardware and that leather piece where the two shoulder straps meet the back. Sometimes I see something that says "Germany," but I rarely see any other useful markings.

Guidance?

EFF,  DOZE MIYAKES.  

 

 

Matt, I'm glad most of what you're finding is wayyy too large for me or I'd have to sell organs to kop.

I have just started looking around some thrift stores in my area, not much luck yet, but I am hopeful.  I picked up a pretty nice Dockers jacket yesterday for $10.  I have noticed it is very difficult to find a good selection of men's clothing at my local thrift shops, it is mostly women's stuff.  I have found 1 store that is exclusively men's and I will be stopping by regularly.  Are there any other members in the Raleigh, NC area that might be able to point me in the right direction as far as good shops go?

My guess is that it is a license deal like the FeatherSuede sportcoats. The only Lanvin tie I've found had the same tag, but also said made in USA on the fabric content tag. From what I could find the licensed ties are made by Damon Creations.

Most of the braces I've come across with "Germany" were made by CAS. The Trafalgar braces I've found all had tags on the leather piece and said "England" on the brass adjusters.

Cramerton cloth, the same used on the nicest Bill's.  I have the pants in the third photo and they're dope once you have them slimmed down.

Just saw this tag on a Piombo SC from eBay.  Not sure if Piombo is a maker, but it's also made in Italy.

Thanks. Yes, the Germany ones did say CAS. Anyone willing to share a few decent brace names to be on the lookout for, please either reply here or PM. Remember: I don't wear them as a rule, so you're very likely to be the beneficiary if I pick them up.

Thx.

Anybody here close enough to Yonkers that they could spare a few hours to pick up an item and have it shipped to me? Will reward with menswear and/or money.
post #48551 of 138728
Awesome patterns, capnwes. Look to be in great condition, too.

That sucks, especially for tracking costs.
post #48554 of 138728
Well to be more accurate, I should have said cash or check, but who the hell wants to write a check every store they visit?
