I don't have the link for the pull-fix (wish I'd saved it as well!), but here is a comprehensive chart for fabric codes:

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.

That Zegna is super recent. Current labe (black with no Z in the background. Faux pick stitching around the perimeter of the label). Maybe 3 years old? Nice score!!

Thanks! I'd definitely be interested in a Fire + Ice (Bogner) jacket. Below are a couple examples.

Florida has still been dry and crappy. Here are some of the stuff I picked up:

 

 

Non-clothing finds: Sweet Proline kitchenaid Mixer and Foodsaver, Also found a Soda Stream

700

So I had to share this, because I have sort of been on a hunt for some of these. My GF's brother last christmas handed out animal knit hats as a gag gift to everyone. This year I decided she and I would one-up him. If anyone happens to see any of these  at a shop near you in a women's small or extra small, let me know because there are still several I need to find. Everyone in her family is getting christmas sweaters. Ugly. Ass. Christmas sweaters. Here is what I have come up with so far.

Best sweaters ever.....

For the real clothing related finds, I haven't really come up with much lately. Really hoping the rich snowbirds will get down here and start the closet cleaning.

 

Found these and took a chance. This will be an interesting riddle for those of you who love the "who made this?" game. I am assuming they are lizard? Almost no detail because they have had some use. Resole means nothing underneath to help, heel pad is completely worn so no picture or anything to help. Only ounce of info I have is on the sizing, which you can see merely shows its a 12 D/B. Anybody recognize these?

Pendleton tweed jacket, tagged 46, suede elbow patches. Bought this thinking one of you might want it. Does have a couple of spots my dry cleaner didn't get out, and a tiny tiny single moth hole.

Edit: I felt like Cap donated his cufflink collection when I ran into these. I didn't pick any of them up, but took these pictures for any of you that want them. The store isn't far and I am happy to proxy.

 

Hopefully these pictures are visible enough to see all of them.

That's actually part of what I was looking for, thank you. And cashmere? Sweet.

Bingo. Guess it was less a link and more this illustration. Thank you as well.

Thanks for the help on that! I thought it was recent and they actually have a very similar one for fall here. That one is sold out, but they have similar jackets for the fall at around €1800.

I'll keep an eye out for that Bogner. There are piles of winter stuff and I rarely go through it, though I'd imagine a few gems would be in the mix. I'll try to hit up a couple of places on Monday and let you know. I've been searching the classifieds, eBay, department stores and thrifts for some of the olympic stuff made for Austria. I really liked the style and cut, but as far as I know it wasn't available to the public.

Awesome find!!!! We bought a new pro-line model in America in red (my wife wanted red appliances dozingoff.gif ) and they're great! They're insanely expensive here, so we shipped (!) one over and bought a giant transformer for it and it was still cheaper. Seriously though, the transformer needed to safely run one of these over here is insane. Anyway, well done!

I can't imagine what shipping would have been! This thing is pretty heavy.

The glasses look to have a nice style, but they look a bit too small for your face, I'd ditch them.

I know, right? Somewhere around $150-200. The transformer was another €100. It's hard to find the pro series here and in my city, I don't think it's even sold. However, the smaller one costs about €600 ($770) alone. It's crazy, but they're all made in America and shipped here, so I understand the considerable markup. My wife loves hers as she makes piles of cookies beginning around now and continuing through Christmas. We also picked up a few attachments for it which are nice.

Edited to add: Also, I don't know what it takes to get charged customs duty in Austria when I ship via USPS. It's insane. I write down the exact cost in both $ and € and Austria has marked everything "Abgabenfrei" which is duty free. I have always declared things and it has been accepted. UPS and FedEx, however, collect on EVERYTHING, no matter whether they pay the government or not. I had to pay €40 to receive three shirts from FedEx that were sent from America. It was also the last time I let anything be shipped to me via FedEx.

Huh. I just picked up two more Harris Tweeds (stopped at St Vinnies while picking up supplies for the big camp out). And auctions for 4 going live tomorrow evening...

Wow! I can definitely see the shipping cost being that high; it has to weigh 25 lbs easily. I hope you never have to have a warranty repair! If your wife's cookies are anything like her cheese spread, the mixer was a smart investment. I hope your pants stretch...haha.

You just made my wife very jealous. laugh.gif

I showed her your post and she said "Whaaaat!?! I want a Kitchen Aid Pro and a foodsaver!!". She has a regular white Kitchen Aid she got for Christmas a number of years ago but she's been wanting either a white or stainless Pro for awhile now.
