Um.... yea I don't like to think of myself as a dwarf but they would fit perfect (might even be a tad long in the leg....). Is it a pee stain or on the outside uhoh.gif

I kind of want to see your title changed to primordial dwarf, if just for a day.rolleyes.gif You'll have the last laugh though, smaller folks always seem to live longer.

Yeah, I don't think a 29" inseam quite qualifies as dwarf. Now the 7-8 pairs of very nice pants I left the other day with a perfect 33" waist that all were cut to about capri length of about 24" ffffuuuu.gif

I was scanning through the jackets and skipped this, but then did a double take because it looked interesting...pull out the label and nearly had a stroke...

 

 

 

 

Dont want to steal Shiny's thunder with his Thom Browne score...but im sure you guys would appreciate seeing some Dior Homme and not the usual Christian Dior licensed garbage that sometimes plagues this forum.

 

HIDDEN FUNCTIONAL CUFFS...

 

 

GW PRICE TAG....For the Non-Believers....

 

This thing has...

 

On-Seam Waist Pockets in addition to the normal ones, not sure if they are flap pocket ones though, the rest of the pockets are still sewn shut

 

Open Front

 

Floating Canvas Construction

 

Single Vented

 

Fully Lined

 

Satin Under Collar/Lapels

 

Button Holes on both lapels so you could move that militant key loop/button thing to the other side if you want

 

Made in Italy

 

SS/2012

 

Just needs a good pressing!

 

Best part of all?...Fits me almost perfectly!

$8.99 HAHA!! Amazing!

Down here, yellow is this week's color... Tell me it was half off.

The lesson for today is: Make sure to check the halloween costume section!!  Lots of men's dress clothes and other jackets get stashed here because they look unique or old.  Read that as, lots of blazers and standalone sport coats that you might miss because you think it's just polyester costumes in that section.

 

This incredible SC was going to end up as some person's costume and tossed afterwards.  No content tag, but it definitely feels like part cashmere....wild.

Also found an otherwise unremarkable Harris Tweed blazer in the mix, but it fits me and has a funky lining so I picked it up.

 

Outside of the "costume" racks were these other gems.

 

BB 1818 Madison SC 42R wool houndstooth...needs a dryclean to remove a couple food spots (?) but is otherwise in amazing shape.

ATTN: Nataku.

 

Sicknasty Feathered Friends down fill parka with button-on hood.  SMALL, can't believe I found one that fits....

 

Edit, for those who haven't heard of this brand, it's the Volant midweight jacket shown here:  http://www.featheredfriends.com/Picasso/Garments/Mid/VolantJacket.html

Aanndd....eBay fodder.  Willis & Geiger short sleeve (??) cotton sweater.  MUSA.

 

 

DAT DIOR.  GO AHEAD, BRUSH YA SHOULDERS OFF.

I believe we have established over time that Barrie LTD shoes are made to their specifications: calf by Churchs/Cheaneys, shells by Hanover, and mocassins by Rancourt. Barrie LTD shoes in general runs true to size IMHO. I'll be happy to be proven otherwise of course.

 

I was just up wayy too late and my brain was not really functioning... uhoh.gif

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's fake Dior man shog[1].gif

You can tell by the diagonal stitching only at the corners.  The real Dior has stitching all the way around the label...
