I picked up a morning jacket with tails about 5 years back. Dated 1909. Constructions is amazing and it's in great shape. Silk covered buttons with an embossed pattern of an (oak?) leaf on the buttons. Still have it, though I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. Also found the vintage Huntsman suit from 1949 and the LA tailor bespoke suits from 1953-54, all from the same donor. Just yesterday I came across an amazing pair of black trousers. Button fly, patina'd buttons, split curtain waist-band, the works. Dated 1940 from a small tailor in Northern Minn. Sadly the seat of the pants looked like a mirror. Such a pity....

+1. Not what I had pictured from the description. Pretty cool actually. Maybe made for the Japanese market?

I handed it to him and said good day. Forgot about the pricing there. Did see some Kiton and Brioni shirts there, though both were fatally f'ed up. Was this close to picking up a Russian night vision monocular haha.


I wouldve threw it in his face.

^^ Awesome.

Speaking of oldest thrift finds, I went back for that 1941 Hickey Freeman suit yesterday.

In amazingly good shape for its age. Just one inconspicuous flawed area, toward the inside bottom of the left trouser leg:



Measurements: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
  • 42 R jacket (22" chest, 18.25" shoulders, 30" from the bottom of collar, 33" sleeves)
  • 36" trousers (13.5" front rise to top of waistband, 28.75" inseam + 4" to let if 1.75" cuff removed).


Dibsed at the moment.
