For now I will hold the whole. If no one else claims the buttons, I will let you know.

Haha, sorry, I misunderstood that. I thought you meant that there was a free jacket and that you will leave it unless someone wants it and/or its buttons. I'm not desperate for buttons, so no worries on that!

Anyway, sorry, I have no idea as to what you should do!

Wasn't someone a few pages back asking for old SCs? I'm not sure what they were up to, maybe making something.
I wonder if you'd have enough material in a tweed jacker to repurpose into a cap or something? It would take some sewing skills though.

How about a vest?

Nice haul, Greek!

 

Saw this from across the store and was sure it was Versace:

It was private eyes, looking for Harris Tweeds and Vintage Camel Hair SCs with the HT and Camel Hair labels inside...

I've yet to measure them, but if they won't work for him . . . I've got to see if you're on the "nice" list first!

Manufacturers mentioned include:
  • David S. Reid
  • SunIce
  • Decente
  • Anba
  • Bogner
  • Ditrani
  • Nevica

Cool! I've only seen SunIce, Decente and Bogner. Never actually heard of those others. Great info! Bogner's recent (casual?) line Fire + Ice is really cool stuff and I definitely suggest grabbing it. I still need to finish my list of current stuff.

I see the odd piece turn up in thrifts but I'm sure most of it was used hard and put away wet so completely beat to hell at the end of it's life, or when fashions began to change.
Though I do remember with fondness the craze for "Stretchies" in the early 80s. Think the precursor of yoga pants.

I also remember the unbelievable '80s ski suits with neon colors. There are '80s themed ski weekends sometimes and everyone turns up in these ridiculous looking ski suits.

Bogner is a German company and therefore I come across their stuff on a semi-regular basis. I think Bogner did the German olympic uniforms this year, unless I'm wrong. Anyway, unless it's for myself, I generally pass. I have seen a ton of their polos for men and women and this fall I've seen some of their sportswear. I know little about collectible sportswear outside of what you guys have mentioned here, but if there's something for which you're hunting Nat, let me know and I'll keep ana eye out for it!

You have a good eye. They are, in fact, deadstock, never worn.

Anyone know how to date Zegna tags? I believe I have a jacket from their spring collection, but I can't remember if I saw it this year or last. I'd like to be able to list the season.

60/40 Cashmere/Silk Zegna, side vents, EU 56/US 46. It looks like an orphan suit jacket in the first photo, but it's clearly an odd jacket.

Beautiful recent (navy) Canali, side vents, MOP buttons EU54/US 44

Now that the other Brioni storm has passed...

Colorful (Click to show)

 

No vents, oh well.

 

 

What is that, wool and silk?

Anyone have the link that I swore I saved, that shows how to fix a pull with a needle and thread? This has one on the sleeve and I think it's fixable.

Nice! That's actually cashmere.
