Taking this look over to the "Tintin" thread.

Also picked this guy up...1st Storm System, never seen the NM label before so guessing it is a couple of years old. Tiny hole on very bottom back by the vent.

 

Looks like a Martin Greenfield tag to me, right?

Rocks it in the living room until the photo session ends, maybe to the front porch... shog[1].gif

Here's an old post related to this: http://www.styleforum.net/t/44994/llama-coat-label

That is sick.  I don't think it's Greenfield though.  I think all of the Martin Greenfield for BB has a tiny "MG" on the tag, like this:

 

 

 

Still, awesome trench.

I come to you dudes tonight as a broken man; a man in mourning.

Today, I rocked my new fave suit: J Press navy tight chalk stripe. Fist time I wore it. Fit me like a glove off the hanger, and looked indescribably baller. Seriously, it was f-cking awesome. On the way home, after an epic 2.5 hour, 20 mile drive home in the snow, in which I managed several Neo-esque escapes from catastrophe, I step out of my car onto my driveway and take a digger. Onto my knee. Ripping my f-king suit trou.

BITCH!!



(BTW, that's a penny for scale and to make the damage moar visible)

So I ask you: is this the kind of damage that can be rewoven for less than $100? If so, anyone got names in the Connecticut / NYC (have cash, will travel) area for reasonable reweaving?

And assuming not to any of the above, can a brother get a moment of silence?

Edit: MAINY: LOVE that BB tweed and the Hermes are actually wearable. Also, my Alden shell-dar must be off, because I wouldn't have picked those based on the micro creasing. Makes me think I've actually handled shell and not known.....

Picked up an older Brooks Brothers tweed today - any idea of the age based on the tag?
