+1 on Fay being a high-end brand. I just tried a tweed jacket on at a local shop that sells Etro, Prada, Zegna, etc. I loved the jacket, might go back for it if it goes on sale, it was somewhere around €700-800.

Thanks Nat! Did a little more digging and found out the jacket is the Fay Stadium Jacket

Fay has a wonderful campaign this season, including tThe "Stadium Jacket"

Translated Excerpt (Click to show)
 
2 coats in 1!
 
Nice to Saturday afternoon along the line your favorite club to encourage! Hands tucked deep in the pockets, rain and wind resistant!Ideally, of course, with my newest sponsor object: Angle league is now under our eyes dressed honest, the address is not this season! (See also our website: your company) Last Saturday was already a beautiful game, with a deserved draw, so maybe make clothes also the team! They had at least sincere compliments, not only because of the beautiful game ;-)
 
About the jacket at the beginning of the season, you can consider only the light down padded outer part to bear against rain and wind.The hood can be quickly set up and also directly collected. In addition, the down jacket inside (finally, a nice usable inner jacket that does not look like a inner jacket) on fresh sunny days, more than enough ... If the outer jacket over it goes and there is a cold or wet chair free and you belong to those who really want to watch and encourage the team wants from that country seat, make it warm waterproof cushion loose where you can place on lovely buttocks , smart right?

These are a couple items I passed on, but was wondering what people thought of them. I can't really find much info on either.

I found a few Teller Coats on eBay, but at $20, I'm thinking it's not worth picking up to flip.



I can't find any info on A.M. Burns in relation to clothing. There wasn't a distinctive tag in the pocket, but it was fully canvased and seemed to have a fair bit of hand stitching. This is one I probably would have picked up just based on quality in the past, but I've realized you need a recognizable name to go along with it if you want to flip it.

The blazer's union tag dates it between '76 and '95 and I have a tux with the "Customized" label dated between '49 and '62, so it spans quite a range. From what I've heard it sometimes pops up on a RTW, but I haven't seen it personally.

Possibly from Salzburg, I've seen a couple of them. Heavy and nice quality, but not a lot of resale on this end at least.

Vintage hooded shirt jacs?  WTF....I need to be in Japan right now.  That Edifice varsity in Harris Tweed...holy shit.


+1  My size is so hard to find around here that I usually have a difficult time not picking up whatever fits well.  Beggars can't be choosers, right? Well, in that kind of place, I'm sure my head would asplode.

NWOT and MINE. Pendleton typically doesn't appeal to me but my Wife convinced me to try this on and I really like it. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Picked a pair of good condition AE Park Aves in Burgundy. Got them for $10 and they fit fine, I wear a 10C but can do a 91/2 D too!

 

Must be older though, never seen this insole. Any insight?

What size was this?

Neither had a size tag that I saw. I popped a tape on the Burns. I got around a 21-22" PTP if I remember right, but it was hard to get a decent measurement in the store. I didn't bother with the overcoat, as I was barely standing at that point.

Oh yeah, also picked up yesterday, N/A....

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the softest cashmere I have ever felt - it is unreal.  Light surface-level staining on the front that will hopefully come out.

Plus, someone was getting rid of their Kennedy collection. I love reading old Life Magazines, for the articles, the ads and the letters to the editor.

Today I had my best single store shoe score. All from the same guy, and all a 10.5 (my size), muhahahahahahahhaha!!!!!! devil.gifdevil.gif

Crockett & Jones


Alden shell bigstar[1].gif


Alden shortwings


Dries Van Noten made in Italy. Another one crossed off the list.


NWT blackwatch scarf from Germany


And I finally, finally took my lazy ass to the dry cleaners. I picked up my personal grail top coat today. Pictures don't do this thing justice, just amazing.


And this deserves a re-post. The sexiest man-robe from Wes, with the biggest MOP's I've ever seen.


And some albums, O' Jay's x 3, Count Basie, Donna Summer (for the wife, she loves disco), George Shearing, which I'm listening to now.

None of the shoes have been touched yet, I'll post more pics when I clean them up.
