Yeah, Looking at a crappy Gieves and Hawkes shirt I have lying around here I'm thinking that was the real thing. Swinging back tomorrow to check it out again.

Yeah I agree. Fingers crossed it's an SC! Speaking of which, I know this maker tag is familiar. Can anyone help?

Thanks for the info. No listed size and I'm terrible at eyeballing overcoats. Think I'll bring my tape measure when I head back for the Hawkes tomorrow. If anyone is interested in the overcoat PM me your measurements and we can play proxy roulette devil.gif

Struzzo, or ostrich claw. Its the top of an ostrich's foot. Not the commonly seen quill marks that look like pimples, but still ostrich nonetheless.

I want to say Partenopea, but I may be wrong.

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?

 

Looks to be the good label but not entirely sure...Got additional pics of others labels? The yellow BB tag is from the 60s.

Scored a pair of Churchs Graftons in binder but very little wear so no serious creasing which is a problem with binder/CG leather. Doubled soles and must be 1kg each!

KenP (I think): I'd rock that shizzle as an sc, no matter what. I actuall picked up a very, very similar Dunhill a while back, though I'm pretty sure mine was by Zegna. Had tons of awesome details, incl real horn buttons, pick stitching everywhere, ticket pocket, dual vent, etc. Just a hair too slim for me -- at least, I thought so at the time. I know more about fit now, and question that judgment. Not that I ended up losing money or anything, but I do periodically wonder what could have been...

Anyway, my original point was going to be: didn't I read once that Dunhill Tailors merged with Alfred Dunhill a while back? So in a way, they are related?

I passed on a pair of Crockett & Jones split toe oxfords, size 12D, priced at $50.  Looked a little worn, but not bad.  Should I go back for them?

Yeah it's definitely beautiful. It's my size but too short for me. The makers tag on mine kind of looks like Zegna, but it's missing the part where it lists the size in a large font, hrm. Maybe those pieces were connected! However what Ballmouse said definitely is true. Dunhill Tailors pieces on ebay don't do that well. Still definitely an interesting piece to run into.

Killers be killin' it lately, great job guys!

 

Cotton... One hell of a tie haul, been tie dry in my neck of the woods.

Today I picked up a pair of vintage Frye engineer boots with a leather sole. Its odd because all the pairs i've seen before have a rubber sole. Too bad they're not my size.

I believe the yellow-on-white Brooks tag was used for multiple decades on their wash-and-wear suits. I had a couple BB wash and wear suits from the 90s that used it. Nothing to get too excited over.

Edit: yellow on white was also used for the Brooksgate line, which started in 1975.

Wasn't a suit, as I pass on those myself. It was actually a pair of embroidered chinos with golf flags and clubs.

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

Dang! So awesome yet so sad at the same time! Ugh! I'm willing to bet they were bagged up separately. Where you find one, you may find more. Best of luck to ya! I've yet to find an Attolini anything or any Borrelli tailored piece.

That Trussardi is beautiful and that Borrelli is drool.gif . I sure hope you find the trousers to it!
