I honestly think the guy must have died, because I'm fairly certain all of the stuff was his and was all mint or unworn. I left a Zegna soft SC that I may actually go back for as it was a nice brown and well made.

Re: sleeves. Weird, right? This one has buttons attached so I wasn't sure if they leave it as an option or whether he declined because it cost more confused.gif

The only button holes that I've had done were at the store I bought it. I didn't ask which tailor they used, but the work was fine I'd say. I need to get buttonholes done on a jacket as it's without them entirely and I'm pretty sure my tailor does them, but I'm sure he'll be expensive.

Plain Jane stuff isn't worth it. Most items should have a date code on the fabric care label to judge it's age (FA11 is Fall 2011, for example).I love their slim fit chinos and cords. Shirts are great casual pieces. Their quality and styling really has improved a ton over the past 10-ish years. The fact that they're starting to have collaboration pieces and selling items from high-end makers like Alden, Redwing, Warehouse and Norse Projects shows they're moving up on the ladder. As for that cardigan, it's gorgeous. A classic piece I'd rock the hell out of. I'm not really a crew-neck sweater guy; zips and cardigans is where it's at for me.

I get emails from them EVERY SINGLE DAY, but I do like a lot of their stuff, especially the collaboration things. I do have an orphaned J Crew suit jacket that I got on eBay. It was a total ripoff as the pictures and description were for the wrong item. It turned out to be a chalk striped orphan flannel jacket in a size 39R. It's made in Italy and not bad, so if anyone wants it and can track down some pants, it's yours for the cost of shipping.

Picked up this odd vest, khaki corduroy, cool wooden buttons and pockets and thought it would fit...unfortunately I eyeballed it wrong...it would fit a smaller guy than me 17.5" across chest, 24" length, if anyone likes it, just the cost of shipping will take it  

 

I really, really wanted these to work, but my tailor can't make them long enough for me ffffuuuu.gif Light grey Zegna (I think by Incotex, Portugal made) 100% Wool in perfect condition, flat front, 34x29 with 1.5" cuffs - Available 

 


Hey man I picked up that same FORD Eddie Bauer bag at a garage sale not too long ago! Very good quality, and is sought after. Also, those Zegna's are great too! I found a darker brown pair by Incotex for E. Zegna Size 34R. I dunno if your tall as me, but I would but up for trades/selling them :P Lemme know if your interested

I left an old Pinstripe db Luciano barbera in charcoal and same db pinstripe Oxxford in navy maybe 44 or 46 in good condition. both unvented. Trousers pleated. Okay to leave stuff like that?

Might post some cool finds later if I get a lil more good stuff soon.

Went back to the store that yielded up the Kiton and Zegnas on Sunday and picked up a 2 Oxxfords, a PRL made in USA tweed hacking jacket, and a Fay tweed sportcoat that fits me nicely.

I agree that j crew styling has improved but by that quality has they used to make a ton of their stuff in USA now everything is basically made in china the Ludlow suits have Italian fabrics but manufacting is of basic quality I love the updated wider lapels on the new Ludlow though.

I picked up a nwot Oxxford navy blazer. The seller had Neiman Marcus listed as the maker, and in the description he mentioned the jacket being made by "Oxford" (one eks) twice in the description (tagged Oxxford from the pictures). The seller had a high rating with many transactions, but seemed to sell almost exclusively female clothes. I'm assuming that the seller didn't know who Oxxford was.

 

I got the jacket for 30 bucks + shipping. I think that's a steal (though I don't know if the Oxxford that Neiman Marcus sells is the same quality as Oxxford elsewhere).

Haven't ever seen a Fay piece on here and now two pieces pop up within a couple weeks!

That's exactly what I was thinking! I might hold out on the jacket I saw in the store in the hopes that the thread luck will do it's magic and I'll find one for far cheaper.

Ran across these Cole Haans made in England, can anyone give any insight? Worth a cop for a flip? They're size 7-1/2, looks like they might have been made by Church's?
