Only place I ever found Lobbs was a GW in Little Rock AR, sarcasm.gif .
Good finding though ACE, awesome icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Damnit! How dare you find Lobbs in AR... Last time I was in LR I found some Church's haha.

Ive been staying away from ties lately cause when I would find something good, it would always turn up to be crap upon inspection.

Anyway, decided to take a look today just cause....

In near perfect condition with a minor snag on the keeper.

Walked out with 5 items...this one was free...

 

Oxford Woven? Silk...

700

Oh yeah, first one.

But wait, what's this?

But what's the price?

I seriously almost shat myself in the middle of the store. The bad part is that they are about one size too big. And the condition is not great: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Not sure what I'm going to do with them, so hold off on any PMs for the moment. Just wanted to share my victory with those similarly situated. Persistence pays off.

Ace . Since those are big on you... They might work for me. I can drive up and take them off your hands if needed...I need to visit my mom anyway. nod[1].gif

Related to thrifting, day of orphans for me. Some dude donated his whole dudage minus pants. Lots of suit jackets, solid or light pattern mainly mid grey.

Brands? Try Attolini, Borrelli, Canali, WW Chan, Lanvin 15 faubourg, and a few others... No Kiton and no Brioni, shame....

Prices? LOL, $45 and rising.

Condition? Not bad, Not great though.

Style? Recentish as in last 10 years.

Potential as Sport Coats? Little to none.

Chance of me finding pants? Zero because I am damned if I am going through 100's of pairs when most are so common a color (I aint gonna go through and turn every pants over - eff that).

Did I pick up anything? Yes I did, guy donated the sweetest Trussardi sport coat made by Partenopia. Also picked up the only orphan I could - that was the Borrelli one.

Why did I pick up the Borrelli? Because it was Navy with purple pinstripes - that is a rare color and my eyeballs will spot those pants a mile off on a rack (saves me the trouble of turning over 1000's of donated chinos and suit pants). I will be hitting all stores in that area that spread donations. I willl visit everyday for next 2/3 days to see if they come out. The only worry I have is that being a distinctive pattern will make it a target for folks that think "oh these fucking loud odd suit pants are precisely what I fucking need". With my paranoia, I can read that mind as "I am taking these pants because Klobber wants them", henceforth followed by nefarious cackling in 1980's cartoon type bad guy way......

I am 45bucks in, I better find the pants plain.gif

My one find of the day:

50% Camel Hair 50% Silk, Tag size 50 EU aka 40. Upon Further inspection it seems to be an orphan due a drop size on the tag. I figured due to the pattern and styling one of you gents would be interested in rocking it as an SC. Think it is a 40S, can someone remind me of the maker?

Forgive the flash, but it seemed to capture the color best. Nonflash makes it out to be a warm brown, its closer to a cool mid brown with blue windowpane. Pictures and Measurements (Click to show)






P2P 22"
Shoulder 19"
Waist 20.5"
Length BOC 30"

Now a couple questions:

Is this note worthy? Pretty positive it's not related to dunhill but it was a beautiful navy wool double breasted overcoat dated 1967. They wanted $25 for it.



Secondly, is this good Saville row or mediocre Saville Row?


Oh also, whats the approximate dates on Brooks Bros yellow font label?
post #52841 of 114558

Checking a brand off the thrift wish list is so awesome - 

 

 

There is a small stain on the collar I am 99% positive I can remove.  

 

 

Also found these Salvatore Ferragamo made in Italy penny loafers, size 9EE.  The leather is so freaking supple.  Possibly available for trade.

Looks legit to me.  Hawkes founded in 1771, Gieves in 1785, and unrelated to that Saville Row crap that I see in all of the thrifts around here.

I'm the verified absolute worst at distinguishing suit jackets from sportcoats, but I wouldn't be so quick to assume that it's an orphan just based on the fact that there's a drop.  Many brands (Canali, Corneliani, others included) will list a drop even with sportcoats/when there aren't corresponding pants.  Regardless, it's definitely a rockable pattern without pants.  Great jacket IMO.

Croc would have a pore in each scale. Crocs have these whiskers that grow out of the pores so they can easily feel things around them, like a cat's whiskers. I'm thinking some kind of lizard or snake, maybe.

Dunhill Tailors was one of the best men's stores in NYC at one point. But overcoats generally don't seem to sell well and the name recognition is not too high. Out of curiosity, what size was it?
