"Where there's smoke there's fire" held true. Kept looking, found this:

Holy crap. Two minutes until closing and found these:

"Store is now closed" announcement. Had to check the end of the rack one more time on the way to the register, to make sure I didn't miss anything. Bam:
Best part: the Finamores, Oxxford, and Isaia are 16 35s and fit excellently. Not pictured is a nice Zegna button down, also my size. bigstar[1].gif

Dang! What a haul! I'd go back when you have more time and turn the place upside-down. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Pfffffff......lucky! Ours knows their stuff too well. Takes the thrill of the hunt. They even know what Thom Browne and band of Outsiders are. WTF...

Wow, thanks for the info! What's the tell? Are all Oxxford shirts Kiton-made? It's definitely my favorite shirt of the lot. The button down collar has a perfect roll.

The label, and if you look at the buttons they are the tan shell, also, it was made in Italy. It should have hand felled seams all over it too!!!
Only the made in Italy Oxxford shirts are Kiton. Most of the rest are US made.

Yes, those labels denote garments not worth your while nor anyone else's, but it being the spirit of taking, I mean giving, I will happily lighten the load on your closet and take whatever it is that label is attached to and even pay all shipping costs involved. I can only imagine...

Yep, it appears to have all those things. Thanks! I had never seen hand felled seams before. They look awesome. I was thinking of having this shirt taken in slightly, but I'd hate to touch those seams.

 The GW boutique shops around here are filled with all the good brands, but you have to pay too much (for thrift shops) to get them. I'd rather hunt through the other shops to find the same things for 1/10th of the price...

Put darts in the back, dont take them in on the seams. I have one that I had that done to, it worked like a charm!

Agreed that it is a replica. The label doesn't look at all like my 1983 issue G-1, or any other US military label I have seen. Think black on white. So this may be made to USN specifications but it does not appear to be USN/USMC issue.

Issued G-1 jackets are even-number sized and are meant to be form fitting. Female naval aviators are probably issued jackets cut especially for women. A busty woman in a man's jacket would look ridiculous because the rather high waist of the jacket would be much too wide in fit. G&B definitely makes the G-1 in women's sizes, as evidenced by your jacket and the G&B website.

IMO you have a women's jacket which is cut as a women's jacket and would not be a proper fit for a man. I wouldn't cut the label off and sell it as a man's jacket.

Good call. I'm not usually a fan of darts, especially on a shirt with a box pleat, but I think that's the route to go with this one.

went to the outlets today the only worthwhile thing I found was a purple label in size L with a cutaway collar for 75 with 30% off but I passed

Still in their "boutique section" but less than a couple jacksons...this one makes me happy...though torn between keeping and selling: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Nice quick flip on this jacket. Woolrich 60/40.

So...to keep or to flip...talk me into selling these! Never been worn.

And a xmas present for my son, the tax attorney!

Almost forgot this...nice Donegal Tweed!

That is true although I assume it would be harder to come across that on a forum like this than what people are posting on Facebook although I probably should change my username

 

Yeah bro, I think that's a good place to start...I, too, have learned it the hard way. uhoh.gif
