Could use some info on the Balmain shirt below? Like I said don't think this is the Balmain I'm looking for, but info would help me know a little more about this brand in the future.

Could definitely use some info on this Balmain shirt. Authentic? I'm assuming this isn't the Balmain I'm looking for, but I liked the fit and figured I could use it.

I have a feeling this is a good pickup. Is it?

I have tried selling some women's shoes on eBay - D&G, Jimmy Choo, Ferragamo, and have had less that stellar success. IMO you have to watch the size. While a D&G in 6 AAAA may look great and be in perfect condition, unfortunately the only place that you can sell them is in the Philippines. So be careful, unless they are for your own use. . .   

 

If you feel remorse for the vest, please send it to me - perfect Winter wear for where I am located!  As noted vintage Schott is generally good. smile.gif

I like HF for myself, but there doesn't seem to be much of a markup for flipping—there's just so many of them. The G&H name might get it more attention if it didn't have the damage.

+1. I did sell a HF suit the other day for $100, but I've had a couple of really great HF sport coats that have yet to sell. I think I've had better luck with Brooks Brothers.

The licensed stuff sits, in my experience. Shame because it's reasonably well made, as most HF stuff was at the time. But I guess the people who jones for G&H tend to jones for the real thing.


I have two things to report:
1. The Method doesn't work when leather is involved. RIP Trafalgar.

2. You really can find anything anywhere. I found Zegna in Palmer MA. Old and tired, so a pass. But proof of concept nontheless.

That is all. Carry on.

My first Saville Row bespoke today, after many year's of thrifting and it has a very sad ending.

The Welsh & Jefferies was a double breasted. The Plews an orphaned dinner jacket. Both moth bitten beyond repair. Very sad.

That Samuelsohn is relevant to my interests, and my size.  PM en route!

Painful to see.

Your reference to the DJ reminded me: Stopped into an antique store and got to talking to the guy about mission furniture. Conversation eventually turned to other passions, including clothing. So he busts out three early 1900s era tuxes he just bought. 100% hand made and built like tanks. Brianpore / CesarC size and white tie style (no tails, but cut very short). Dude's prices on other things were retail, so didn't even bother getting a price. But they were still cool to see.

Don't get me wrong, the Domenico Vacca and RLPL are sweet finds, but the two above are ones that I would wear with great frequency.  Eff yeah.
