Don't understand why you would want a chest pocket on the inside of your shirt but eBay completed listing seems to suggest that people are in to it. happy.gif

For $45... I let it go, as it was too big for me. Was it a steal or just a good deal?


ACCKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Tell me where this place is and I will go there, now. You are talking the ultimate grail, no exaggeration.

Good day for coats today!

 

What I brought home (all available)

 

Super recent BB single breasted trench, tan size L

Also super recent BB single breasted trench, tan size XL

 

 

My favorite catch though was...

 

Vintage USN issue Pembroke winter peacoat, navy blue in size 38R. I'd say this thing is built like a tank, but I'd be lying. I'm pretty sure it INSPIRED THE TANK. When I first picked this up I honestly thought there must be strike plates in it or something. That's how thickly it's constructed. 

 

What I left behind

At least three brooks brothers suits, including one by loro piana. 

A hilariously fake YSL tie (Had a chinese tag still attached, laughably obvious polyester, dumb pattern, and read "Yves Saint Laurent Poul Hommb") biggrin.gif

 

A Zegna orphaned jacket in 48R

 

A few camel hair coats

 

An interesting wool/cashmere blazer, made in England an absurdly long time ago by a company I've already forgotten the name of

 

A few ben sherman and ted baker shirts

 

Orphaned burberry custom (custom... not prorsum... who the hell paid 4000 dollars for that) suit jacket in 38r with ludicrously colored pinstripes

 

Lots of old school hickey freemans

 

moar

 

 

Pics soon :)

You could wear it with jeggings.

That's a hell of a brag tag.
post #53066 of 121704

I had a stupidly awesome day.  Not armfuls of Brioni good, but I don't live in LA.

 

I'll start with this.

 

These are the labels you're looking for...if'n they aren't fake pieces like these.  Seriously, if the YSL was actually real, it was the most paper thin POS tie I've ever felt.  Cremiux ties are more substantial.

^ YSL is real, Cos, and if on women's clothing, has potential to be epic.

I read an interview with E. Zegna about 8 or so years ago where he thought these were -the- next big thing and went bonkers over them. Alas, they didn't quite take off the way he expected. Actually, deconstructed jackets have probably filled their niche better in the interim.
Anyhow, I've still got a few and like 'em. Although I painstakingly picked mine - they're just the right material to be a shirt-jacket in between - but I've seen others that are just hideous. One of mine in particular, coincidentally by Faconnable, is made of the some of the best wool/cashmere I've felt on any of their products (even some high end one-off samples), lucky me I got it on steeper -than-steep discount; it's a gem!
If this one is really tweed like, I'd think somebody could put it to good use. I'd be tempted but I'm in FL without enough other nice cold weather stuff that I don't get to wear already...
edit: I'll add that the large blue label and cursive script is the label of Faconnable's better-than-average to very-good stuff.

 

so go back? it was 25 or 40 I can't remember I think it was tweed but it might have been something nicer it was size m
