So passing them dealz to any of you gents here.

The families were related, but the companies are not.

Nice 3 piece! Please tell me that isn't a 40R, otherwise I would have to open up my wallet and part with my money. happy.gif

Easy said it better than me. Works on everything.


Except ties.

Um, yeah.

AND MY SIZE! PM SENT!


OK, so first order of business: Shout outs. Huge shout out to Catside for a meet-up today that ended up with me walking away with, among other treasures, Alden (we think) shell short wings for nothing more than an IOU. Then there's Easy, Randomore, OCooney, Spoo, Mex (who totally bailed me out when I forgot my cufflinks 2500 miles away, bought ME coffee AND refused cashish for the links!), Shiny and many, many other people I'm sure I'm forgetting for awesome trades/hookups lately .

Next is: I forgot to brag about the Harris Tweed overcoat I passed on. It was really, really nice except for what looked like a coffee stain on the front. Plus they wanted double the usual price for a coat. Still reasonable, but only if I can get the stain off. Not reasonable to go experimenting with the method, though.

Finally, here is my catch-up photo from recent trips PLUS my brag from today. Everything with an asterisk was from JUST TODAY, and unless noted, stuff is available.
Lets start slow and build, shall we?

Pendleton lumberjack wool shacket. Tagged M, but quite S.
Photobucket

Accessories:*
L to R: Liberty silk braces, BB braces (tagged L), Barbera ancient madder paisley, 2 hand-rolled silk squares of irrelevant origin (not available), BB merino deep V in gray.
Photobucket

Ties:
top to bottom, L to R
Charvet, Battistoni, PRL, Paul Stuart, Zegna, Hermes, Hermes
Photobucket

Suits/SC's, shoes
L to R, top to bottom
PRL USA brown seersucker, dual vent 6 over 2 double breast, orphan but snagged matching trou on Ebay!; old Zegna beige DB, ~41R; Aptons suit with cool lining,* ~44R, Andover Shop beige cotton suit,* ~40R; PRL USA flannel blue windowpane DB (4 over 1, unvented), ~41R (temporarily claimed); Saint Laurie grayvy (gray/navy) suit (keeping); PRL USA pinpoint tweed, ticket pocket & dual vent, ~41R (temporarily claimed); Faconnable glenplaid tweed, throat latch & dual vent (keeping); Daks houndstooth tweed with leather accents (keeping -- needs serious waist suppression); Brooks Brothers LP wool solid gray flat fronts 36 x 29; Nettleton (?) black pebble grain longwings in 11C*; Nettleton (?) longwings pebble grain in whiskey 11C*; Hannover PTB pebble grain in whiskey 11C*; Footjoy used once golf shoes in 10.5D.*
Photobucket
Detailed, crappy white balance shots of the two awesome tweeds
Photobucket
Photobucket

But that's nothing. Been had a LOT of Zegna shirts.*
Photobucket
Frontmost four in left column are (front/bottom to back/top) RLPL, RLPL, Burberry, Burberry. Otherwise, all Zegna, all the time. 16 total. Most older label but in impeccable shape -- no collar point fray at all. One su misura. Same donor, and LARGE. 18.5+ neck. Store also gave me an exclusive sneak peek at some stock ready to hit the floor. Same donor has at least eight (8) Zegna suits. I can probably get a decent deal, but they're all in the 56 size range. (yes, that's US sizing).

The moral, children, is this: If you are, or know, a very large man and want basically a closet full of the sweet, sweet nectar of an Italian made shirt, or might be interested in having me go back for the suits, get at me.

And I'm spent.

Haven't had as much time the last couple of weeks to thrift as much as i usually like to, but here are some of my finds from
the last couple of weeks:

(sorry some of the pics came in sideways, deleted and re-added several times to no avail...)



30W PRL Corneliani gray FF pants...only wish they were my size...(anyone w/ a 30w got some or similar in 34W? lol)....
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)









 44/38L Charcoal 3 button made in USA PRL suit,,,,(spot is from camera)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)









BB 42L Pink seersucker jacket , sweet MOP buttons





Not as old as some of the coats you guys posted last week, but some tradly FF pants w/ side adjusters from J Press, dated 1966, appx. 32 w x30,  thought they were interesting and someone might want, available...









Pretty sweet Burberry London SC, my size, feels like a silk blend,
made in USA so probably HF but no inside maker or size tag, keeping...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Canali Navy Suit, FF pants but unfortunately unvented, fairly recent from 2006, 52 EU

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








And my 3 best finds over the last couple of weeks, 1st,  Hermes tie..appears real but would like confirmation...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








Stefano Ricci Shirt, Size L, keeping..



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







NWT/Deadstock  Willis & Geiger Wool Pants 36 W, probably keeping for now...


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






Willis and Geiger is deservedly getting all the attention here, but a decade from now, those Press trousers from 1966 will be worth more. By far. Guaranteed.

Poking around the aisles I see a pretty beat up, badly re-glued shine box...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I got my fuckin' shine box....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...but as my compulsion often leads me to do I opened the box and find brushes, creams, polishes, and a shoe horn

 

 

700

Anyway, just a thought for you to consider.

despite my frequent and possibly annoying shog[1].gif posts on the forum I see fashion more as a hobby than a profession at least for me personally I enjoy flipping and nice clothes and their details but I don't see those as a career path for the long term. attending fit in the mid 70s sounds awesome though!!! I am actually planning on studying urban planning which involves architecture also also other disciplines  edit: lets be honest I am probably going to study business

I got that exact pair as my first raw denim jeans. They're great, comfortable and that style (Weird Guy) is perfect for us folks that aren't built like twigs.
