So, a couple of things...

A few days ago, I asked if anyone knew the maker of Zegna's sunglasses. I sent them an email and got a response:

Bezug nehmend auf Ihre Frage kann ich Ihnen die Info geben, dass unsere Brillen durch die Firma DeRigo produziert werden.

Hier sind auch die Adressen der zwei Optiker in XXX die unsere Brillen anbieten.

It turns out they're from the Italian company DeRigo. They also make sunglasses for Police (the brand, not the actual police. Nor Police, the band). I was a bit surprised, but I've been really happy with them.

Next, I (finally) found a couple of things today. Terrible pictures because A) my camera is broken, B) it's nothing so special that you need high quality pictures and C) I'm a bit lazy.

A pair of Tod's loafers, size 12. I haven't cleaned them up yet, but they're in decent shape. I've had good luck moving Tod's on eBay.


Unknown pocket square. Silk and made in England.



Lacoste pullover in a size 7 (big). Nothing exciting.


I left an orphaned Corneliani suit jacket in black. I could probably resell it, but I have one sitting around waiting to go on eBay and I'm holding my breath on it. I may swing by tomorrow and pick the other one up as well.

Now, if the furniture people on here see this, I'd like your opinion. In fact, I'll take anyone's opinion. I found a leather chair and it supposedly dates from the '70s. I really like the chair as it has a smaller footprint. All I know about it is that it has a heavy chrome base and no manufacturer's sticker. We're moving to a different apartment in December/January, so our current monstrous chair will need to go. I've never been in love with it anyway, so I'm not too sad about that. However, would something like this go in a living room? Is it more of an office chair?

If it were brown, I would already own it. If it had a footrest, I'd already own it. However, my wife turned her nose up at it. Great condition on the leather, a few small tears on the corners due to moving it, I believe. It was €59....what do you guys think??

So I'm going to be in NYC (mainly LES and Midtown) next weekend - what thrift shops does everyone recommend? I found that there are a bunch near Union Square where I'll be staying.

It was actually $7. I didn't mean to offend anyone, I passed on lots of deals to the members here, even went red a few times. I edited my post and took out the price.

Flipped a perfect condition Harvie & Hudson on the bay several months ago. Didn't bring in much at all if I recall correctly. Hopefully you have better luck. It was a really well made shirt though.
post #48806 of 121903

Oxxford 100% Camel Hair - Tan Sport Coat 40R, very recent

NWT Facconable khaki pants, not Incotex, but similar styling 36W - paid a little more than normal because NWT

Hiltl cords 36W, great quality pants

 

left behind:

Canali Proposta Suit (dated, unvented, double/triple pleated trousers, $25)

3x "Burberry's" Suits ($65 each)

Canali tweed-ish sport coat (unvented, $10) - maybe should have taken a shot

Bills M2P (size 44 and weighed like 3 lbs, not worth the flip)

Charleston Khakis (size 50, could have fit myself twice in there!)

Hiltl pops up here every once in awhile and I have to say they're high quality. I have a couple of pairs of pants by Hiltl that I bought retail and they're pricey. I'm not sure how they do as far as resale, but it's not something I'd leave behind if they fit.

I'll pass that sentiment along to my wife! Does it work in a living room or should it be confined to an office space? The arms are what throw me...the closed off armrests make it feel like a lounge chair.

a little on the large side, will probably pass them along to someone else on here for a good price

Mint condition. Also picked up a mint Lanvin tie and a Samuelsohn blazer.
post #48810 of 121903
I finally met Nataku today on a lunchtime run. Very nice guy and good to finally meet.

Picked up a nice looking Pendleton flannel for myself and that's about it. Stared at a Boss velour made in Italy shirt for too long but wisely it looks like it didn't really have any flipability and I sure couldn't pull it off.
