Size 10 and 10.5 scotch grain, Black Fleece boots.
Is this Eddie's ebay handle?


For anyone who got them, how do they fit? True to size?

 What good is bragging about thrift shop finds without mentioning the price paid?

In general, if you're paying more then $15 for a suit and $5-7 for a really nice shirt you're doing it wrong (these are on the HIGH side) teacha.gif

please note this is before tailoring I am lengthening the sleeves ever so slightly, adding some more waist suppression and hemming the pants to a minimal break with no cuffs, I have decided cuffs just don't work for me, but other than that this this fits great!! right? please tell me if I am wrong but I freaking love this thing, barely any padding more summer weight 1/4 lined with nice ass fabric, only thing I would change is move the button stance up about an inch but damn this thing is nice. please excuse the bad hair I just got back from the shooting range also check out that lands end tailored fit cutaway collar shirt I highly recommend it you can get it for something in the 10-20 range

Still trying to get through the whole thread. This thing moves too fast!

 

Here's some stuff I've found recently

 

1000

 

Really cool recent HF lambswool / cashmere blend. Completely unstructured. The weird part is that it's lined and sized like outerwear instead of a blazer. Fits, so mine.

A bit older HF, but nice fabric. Also around a 42 so fits, but available 'cause I've got too much stuff.

A nice Irish Donegal tweed in my size. Probably keeping 'cause I don't have a blue-ish tweed, but maybe available if someone wants to make an offer

Cool wool scarf, untagged

Cool Paul Stuart tie, available

If anyone recognizes this (Handers?) let me know. Nice twill wool, not as bright as this pic (my camera oversaturates reds). Made in England

Anyone seen this old Woolrich tag?

 

1000

 

It was on this shirt... Left it but it'll probably be there if I go back for it

That's a damn good find.  Go back for that immediately.  There are too many results on eBay to say whether it'll be a hit but your chances are good for a $5 investment.  I actually just purchased the exact shirt in the third auction link that I posted below.  Also, the ones I've posted are way newer tags.  Yours is 50s and is the exact one used for the Daiki Suzuki used for the WWM reboot.

I think that's the really good Woolrich, by that Japanese guy.

yeah I have been thinking about getting some modern tailor shirts there staples are pretty cheap at 20-30 bucks but I just haven't felt comfortable dropping cash on them when I already have multiple blue and white shirts

And a quick snap of my finds from today.

 

Some country rekkids, RLPL gingham shirt (16) with the slightest bit of wear starting to appear at the cuffs, collar points, and collar.  Baldesserini Hugo Boss and Charvet ties.

 

If anyone thinks that RLPL gingham shirt is totally unwearable, I'll send you the buttons in exchange for a SASE. lololololol

 


Send me the RLPL and I'll examine the wear mwink[1].gif

I put in a bid almost a week ago and was stupefied to learn that nobody challenged me.  A super popular size on a very unique item from an in vogue house.  Boglioli is rare on eBay, let alone at a starting bid of $50.  I remember seeing some ridiculous Boglioli madras SCs a couple months ago for $145 BIN, which disappeared within hours.  Beyond stoked to rock this in 7 months..

 

Almost as good as the royal blue flannel Boglioli I got for like $45. eBay can be amazing sometimes.

Actually I'm from the Bay yay yay yay YAY. San Francisco to be exact.

But I'm in school at Santa Barbara. Trust me, it's small time compared to LA and SF. Plus there are some serious dry spells where I pick up Brooks Brothers and random t-shirts to make it through it.

I also forgot that she (Wendy Carlos) scored A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Tron.

I used to be heavy into this. We used to call her Walterwendy as her original name was Walter. Actually, my original Switched on Bach record SAYS Walter Carlos. A little bit of a tangent, but for anyone into Bach (not just Walterwendy), check out the video "The Joy of Bach." Super great video but crazy 70s fashion!

That "Switched on Brandenburg" isn't available, is it? wink.gif
