Speaking of unidentified Brooks Brothers labels, I'm not familiar with their outerwear labels - anyone recognize this?

Sorry for the crappy pics - building a photo booth for this specific purpose.

Also, a consignor sent me some things to sell that he thrifted. Pretty much the most insane things I have seen - he kept the tags on them for me to see and gave me permission to post. You will lose your minds.

Just one find today:




I know many Chipp tie patterns are puns (e.g., Santa with his pants down = "moon over the North Pole" and guy with a cat on his head = "pussy on the mind"). Can anyone "decode" this pattern?

Hmm... Santa's going to dump some packages as he checks his list -- twice?

 

P.S. I hope that going to a Secret Santa pal!

Not sure if I can post pics yet, but I picked these AE's up at a Thrift just last week. Size 14B, but fit like a 12-13. Available.

The second is a dark green Raf Simons overcoat. The tag indicates it's from the 2000-1 F/W season. It's a 38 (48 European), so too small for me. I'll be chucking it up on eBay.


Oh, sweet Jesus, let me know when you toss that on the bay.

I don't think so, but I'd like confirmation smile.gif

Dude, that coat is the bees knees, I say rock it. If not with a tux, then any other time you damn well please. Just by looking at your fit pics, I think you would have no problem pulling that off. nod[1].gif

Did come out with a Brooks Brothers Madison made in Italy suit and a couple pairs of Allen Edmonds. Photos later.

Missoni is a flop unless it's a wild, crazy pattern. Didn't see that BB Madison. Must have came out after I left. Did you see those Burberry trenches they had priced at $119? Ridiculous! laugh.gif They are really getting out of hand.

My first thrift fit pic (I was hoping for better, but this will do).  From a trip to the Met opera this weekend just before Sandy.  I know the pants are a little long and everything's just a little off fit-wise (and wrinkly and misplaced after squirming around for 3 hrs), but I couldn't bring myself to spend money to lengthen the jacket and sleeves as I discovered significant stains on the jacket after I bought it (hence the odd buttoning...).  Anyway, way too much explanation.

The bow looks way too wide.

Most insanely high end Hugo Boss I ever found.

Sport Coat, fully canvassed, made in Italy, and 40% angora wool, 8% cashmere.

Has the look and feel of a Sport Coat costing 2grand vs 500odd bucks.

Boss is also recent going by styling.

Worth it for me to take pics? Anyone curious?
