That's a lot of alcohol and sweet clothes

 

I would have a friend or someone to take good photos of it and send it off to Ebay. Starting price $30 or some amount you are comfortable with $400 or whatever "buy it now" price. Mention the retail price of $800 in the title to attract bidders. Or you can send it off to Spoo. PM him for details.

I put a spool of green thread behind the hole so that it was more visible for the photo.

The hole was originally a little below and to the right of the two brown specks.

 

Wow! That's really good reweaving job there, buddy! Can you also do more advanced tailoring like sleeves shortening or length shortening?

I found the suit with tags that states "Hardy Amies - Savile Row." I see eBay prices for Hardy Amies items are pretty low. Is this their diffusion line or something? The suit seems fused from what I can tell.

From my understanding, most Savile Row tailors avoid putting huge tags on their bespoke or MTM pieces. You can find their tags usually in the breast pocket that will say their address then something to the effect of "Savile Row London WI". I try to avoid anything that says Savile Row on a big tag because that's mostly likely using Savile Row as a brand. Those usually are diffusion lines meaning cheaply made crap.

Yeah, I've made that mistake so many times before. That's ok, you live and learn.

 

Today, at the thrift store, I spent about an hour looking around. Passed on a pair of Hangovers, 2 Ben Sherman thick ass ties that were WTF looking, and some work shirts. Picked out a Polo cotton tie, and a LL Bean shirt jacket that was made in USA and fits me pretty well. Got to the cashier, took out my wallet...errrr...Where's my damn wallet? Nope, didn't bring it...FML!!!

I wish I had the chance to pass that label over.  I've yet to see good Balmain, Dior, YSL, Lanvin, etc.  We love our conspicuous consumption here in Denver, but the thrifts haven't seen much in the way of donations yet!

It also helps if it is "Balmain" and not "Pierre Balmain" ... The first one is a current label. The second one is 1950s.
