in-fact I am thinking about selling my linnesdale as it is a little large and buying one (or three) of the the jc penny versions with the extra cash I just need to handle one in the store first

I think wooster is acting more as a figurehead than an actual product developer he represents the new "hip" jc penny but will likely not play an active roll in the creative process so he can just stroll around trying to look cool in thom browne and getting into even further debt

Um, are you completely clueless?  He's actually been employed in the fashion industry for many years and is a super humble dude.  He's from SALINA, Kansas.  Do you know how small of a town that is?  He isn't some Upper East Side old money turd with a trust fund.  He came from nothing, blue collar as it gets.  He doesn't peacock around Pitti like numerous nascent bloggers.  He's actually expressed confusion as to why people bother to take his photo so often and wishes he wasn't considered a "style icon."  He just happens to be a handsome dude who understands how to dress well for his body type.

 

Face it, this whole obsession we have with expensive used clothes is escapism at its finest, we're trying to look as rich as we can on a budget.  We are all more or less "herb".

bounce2.gifNew Old Stock W&G?

 

Put it on eBay with a BIN price of "Just leave the check blank and make it out to cash"

post #53420 of 113106
Ian, if you don't pursue architecture, why not go to the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC? You seem to have a real interest in it.

My cousin and his wife both attended (he was there in the mid-1970s, can you imagine a more interesting time to live have lived there?)

Anyway, just a thought for you to consider.

Picked up this awesome fall patterned Hickey Freeman and Sons suit. This suit has a tint of green that didn't come out that well in the pictures. Three buttons, center vented, pants pleated and cuffed. No size tag but if i had to guess 42-44 and pants waist 34-36. Doesn't fit me so it is available.

I got out for a few minutes in between work today.

 

I paid more than I should for this 3 piece at $15, but this thing is baller! Flat front pants with a split waist, peak lapel, awesome pockets on the vest, I don't know what type of buttons? It is also Made in the USA and canvassed, and I thought it was just a fashion suit.

Just FYI, it's either Hickey-Freeman or H. Freeman and Sons. The two companies are not related.

jcubbz that suit isn't a Hickey Freeman and Sons.  H. Freeman is a different maker than Hickey Freeman.  Only reason I know is because I posted the exact same ~6 months ago.  Anyway, nice finds!

I've been super obsessed about selvedge denim lately. Been eye balling this pair of Naked 'n Famous weird guy model for a few days. Put in an offer. Seller agreed and changed the price from $60 plus $11 shipping to $55 and free shipping. I double checked the measurements and realized it won't have the fit I wanted. So passing them dealz to any of you gents here.

I read somewhere they started off as relatives and were trained in the same tailoring school. Broke off and did their own thing.
