More to the point, one of the moth-destroyed ones I left behind had an Attolini tag in the pocket, and all the details on this one (inside pockets, buttonhole stitching, etc.) seem to match that one.
Can anybody confirm or disprove?

Harlem? I wouldn’t even use this word in a staff meeting. Lest my advancement possibilities plummet…

I didn’t go out this weekend cause of the crowds, but I did score this tie on Friday at lunch. It is wool and absolutely oozes mahogany wood, hunter green, ponies and all that RL sensory overload. N/A since I may have only one other wool tie shog[1].gif

Just got back from a 4 day weekend visiting family and friends in Wisconsin and came back to 622 posts to read. Gonna be a while. Made at least 10 thrift stops with not much luck at all...

Did pick up an Eton french cuff shirt that is currently getting the treatment for the neck but is there any way to get permanent marker out of a shirt? It's way down at the bottom of the shirt but I'd like to get rid of the last name written in black marker.

Barbera stuff was / is made by Attolini, Partenopia, and St Andrews.

I've got one LB Sartoriale jacket from consignment (very consignment - paid $200 for it) and it's made by St. Andrews. The same shop had a coule LB's made by Attolini, but they didn't fit me as well as the St. Andrews. Plus, the St. Andrews has 15% cashmere and 15% baby camel hair in addition to wool, where the Attolinis were just wool.

Unfortunately never thrifted any LB jackets/suits, even though I've found LB shirts, outerwear, pants, etc, etc. I've actually been made privy to a big reason as to exactly why that is, actually, and where the stuff is going, but I've been made aware there's a couple of hardcore flippers in Columbus who lurk here, so I'll refrain from sharing deets. Ah, for what this thread used to be! Ah, Bartleby! Ah, humanity!

Funny you mention that, I picked up a few 70s/80s USA made hunting type jackets this weekend and one was a duck hunter camo. Might keep that one for myself though.

Amodex. It works best if garment has not been washed/dryed or dampened prior to use.

All the talk of duck camo, could you post pics/what types of items your looking for? I would wager I have a decent chance of finding, and getting to you fine folks, as I live in Arkansas which is like the duck hunting capital of the universe. PS I was in DFW this weekend, so CPmac or Noob, WTF is up with the metroplex goodwills taking suits off the shelves? I was told they were out of season so went back to the central processing....

That makes perfect sense; people don't wear suits in the winter! baldy[1].gif

16, 17.5 French Cuff, 15.5 ish (David Saddler, seems NICE, any experience/thoughts?, CT Sea Island, Holland and Sherry Bespoke BALLER

From HS

 

 

17.5 Canali, 16.5 Pal Zileri (what line is this, not gruppo or Sartoriale, is this just basic mainline?, 15.5/33 recent HF Button down (Guy with pic of him and cute black GF, sorry can't remember your name, isn't this pretty much what you were looking for?

 

 

 

BB Country Club blazer with LP 120's looks like these do really well on the bay 44S

 

 

Gorge is exaggerated in this pic, its low but not that low, lapels big but acceptable, BUT it is side vented.

 

 

 

My first Cavalli of any sort, looks to do well on the bay as well. no size, but im guessing M.

Makers allllll day (the first is pure sex, or is that just me?)

What is date on white block letter label? Not pictured are about 9 other makers, most white letter vintage.

Other than LP shirt, this was my find of the day, although it was more than regular thrift by a fair bit (35). Sweet DB overcoat though, 42R

Slightly better photos of the Stefanobis I picked up Saturday morning. Color is a greenish-blue. Size US12.




I plan to put them up on the B/S thread (and maybe eBay) at a reasonable price. Let me know if there is any interest here before I do.
