You may want to generate some pro-forma statements to include what you expect to sell your inventory for.  Also can i get a look at your depreciation numbers on your digital camera and tape measuring devices?

I vote Kings, it does look to be a G based on the size of the S, and now I can just make out an I before the G, there's just no way to snap a decent picture of it though. Never heard of the brand before, is this a first for the thrift thread?

I know....between 1 November and Christmas, I have so much work. I've been dreading it for over a month now and instead of getting started on it, I'm squinting at an old pair of shoes attempting to decipher the name. Strange hobby.

In other news, I am attempting to decide whether I should get one of these wardrobes. They're huge and heavy. We're moving on 1 January, so I'd have to move it from the shop to our current apartment and then again in a couple of months. They're in good shape, I'd just need to do some minor cleanup.

That no longer happens to me. I now take a variety of precautions after nearly losing my Columbia Bugaboo (@retail!) parka in just that manner.

Probably a store name, and not a brand.

Those are both sweet, I'd say grab the one with the mirror, it looks to have cooler details, and of course the mirror is practical. I wish I had room for something like that.

I was thinking TOGS for a bit myself...

 

So I hit up a shop I haven't been to since mid August. It's a pricey shop, but they always have something good there (last time I landed rlpl and eton). They had tons of sport coats from a guy juuuuust a bit bigger than me, and that was heart breaking (left behind at least 5 SC's with some percentage of cashmere. Anyway I tried on a BrooksBros jacket, possibly an orphan, and it fit perfectly, shy of maybe being a bit short in the sleeve. Then I realized I tried it on in August as well. This is a no returns shop so I'm really on the fence.

 

Talk me in off the ledge... It's a dark charcoal, what can I pair that with successfully (not the best place to ask I suppose but I'd appreciate your opinions)? It was also $55... If it'd been $10, I'd would have left with it. Pretty sure they have a 20% off thing going right now as well (hmmm). Am I crazy for leaving it? Also left some Barbera pants that had a tailor's marks on the inside of the legs  to be taken in in the crotchal region...Between that and pleats I figured no bueno.

You can do better than that on eBay

Do the new LVC's have the double stitching inside the back pocket too ?

Note the buttons, the most common numbers are actually 2, 5, & 6 denoting their manufacturing factory.

 

In addition, I believe that the selvedge line is actually different.

 

This is the vintage pic from the auction. It is plain and without stitching.

Modern ones looks like this. Pic of LVCs

I don't know...considering its a 50L that's a tough choice. He won't likely see another in the thrifts in a while. All of my 50-52 stuff does unbelievably well, so if it's only $44 he probably would do best to buy it. Especially if it fits that well. 

 

Or he could wait for one of us to find one.

 

Sorry, Evil...I realize you asked us to talk you off the ledge. I assume you meany to get you to climb back in through the window, not jump off.

Picked up a Canali Tux (will post full pics later, not sure why they didnt save on my phone...)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also saw a Dunn & Co Harris Tweed Coat, wasnt sure about picking up due to discoloration of the button and interior lining. Can proxy if someone wants.

 

 

 

 

 

*Edit: Nevermind on the tweed, I forgot to note the size of the coat

drool.gif is that euro sizing?
post #50294 of 118226

Haha it's all good, thanks guys. Yeah Wes I was gonna say, if you ever find some 50L Harris tweed coat... But yeah I noticed the bigger sizes you list do well. I do know it sucks searching for a 50L on ebay because of all the euro sized garments that pop up.

 

For the life of me I swear I shot the outside of this other coat there, which was a pretty sick looking gray and brown large hound's tooth, but it has disappeared. The inner tag really caught my eye, and another tag inside was dated like... '57.

It too was probably around $50 and I can't recall the size. definitely smaller than me (that's easy).

 

Also the most skeety brioni I've ever seen, sad because I see so few, was excited to see the tag and...

Material was satiny and this shirt was huuuuge.

 

I refrained from posting this before bedtime...

If these aren't the things of nightmares, what is? There were easily 10 of these heads at the Hollywood GW, and a few body suits as well. Think they were around $60 a head. Proxy? (Kidding).
