post #55651 of 125403
Was a slow day today. Hit 5 stores and nothing. Then, at the last store (everything is available)....

Sz M



Sz L. First time seeing nice PJs ever.





Never found pocket squares until Monday. Now they're falling out of the sky. Two more. Hand rolled. Made in Italy





Polo by Corneliani. Navy w/ brass buttons. 3 btn front. Side vented. 42 R







First Black Label find ever. 2 btn. Side vented. 44 L




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Usually don't pick up Collezioni unless it's a nice suit, but this was really recent and velvet. Too cool to pass up at the price I paid. 46 L







Anyone need a nice staple suit? Fairly recent BB solid charcoal gray suit. 2 Btn. Single vent. Trousers are double pleated & Cuffed. 42 R. 32 x 31

Okay, I'm confused. I know this was covered earlier, but can you elaborate?  Here's what I found:

700

 

And there were a few of these that I left (I think it was actually a slightly different older looking label, but very similar):

700

 

I thought this was the best and was a never-leave:

700

 

?

^^ You're right on track. The label you picked up is the current Collezioni label. Decent, but not crazy. Bottom label is current black label/mainline. High quality and very expensive at retail.

For any watch guys, I received a 1955 Hamilton Stormking V today. Purchased on eBay at much higher than thrift store prices, but a third of what they normally close at thanks to an awesomely low BIN. I have been hunting this watch for two and a half years, and its actually what started my journeys into thrift stores an men's style.

That's a good price!

Awesome tie. But I bought that same design on sale and flipped it in the summer of '10. smile.gif

Looks like someone did a shitty job letting the sleeves down, is that right? Are they 26.5"?

And the closer... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Solid Navy Blue Brioni, Double Vented, Super Fresh (N/A):





Left about 6 Armanis (3 of the newer label, 3 of the older "Le Collezioni" label), and one other Oxxford due to a bit of datedness (unvented, etc.). If anyone is a 42L and interested I can go back and see if anything is left.

Also, at another store picked up this BB Charcoal Pinstripe Suit (41L) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





And this NWT Waxed Canvas J Crew Messenger:


Happy hunting, boys.

Wow! That Oxxford and Brioni..... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Yeah, the Brioni pants had some major stains on the lining and I didn't want to mess with it. The Jil Sanders shirt was really worn out. I also passed on some Corn jacket that was unvented.

post #55660 of 125403
OK, boys. Here we go. (40R dudes: You're going to want to get at me. And then be patient as I crumble under the flood of PMs)

7+ stores today (lost count). Several hundred dollars spent. Then again, several firsts/lifers. So...

Up first, a handful of squares. All hand-rolled, no name brands. Likely keeping.
Photobucket

Next: Ties
Ricci, Ricci, Zegna textured (I'd say grenadine, but I know I'd be wrong), NWT Vineyard Vines -- All available
Photobucket

Charvet, Gucci, Hermes and in the front: UNLINED, SKINNY, VINTAGE BRIONI in midnight blue tonic with silver dots -- All available
Photobucket

Woven silk (I think?), Zegna (KEEPING THESE)
Photobucket

Shoes:
I don't always buy Cole Hahns...

But when I do, they're mint condition suede, USA made with welted and sewn sole. (8D, though, so available -- preferably to trade for suede in my size)
Photobucket

Shirts:
Jcrew Haberdash, Paul Smith, Brioni
Photobucket

Harvie & Hudson tux, Charvet NWOT, BBGF, BB purple label
Photobucket

The flat front trousers:
NWT PRL (thought they were Italy, they're not; they're Malaysia. frown.gif So keeping). Zegna super recent, RLPL black cords, Canali, Tom James (keeping), Hiltl (likely keeping)
Photobucket

But GMMcL: Does it get better?

Sure.

Suits:
Corneliani (from earlier in the week), PRL by Corneliani (exploring trade now, so temporarily unavailable) and ....
Photobucket
Better... (Click to show)
Photobucket

But freaked if it isn't 40R (50R EU). So wish it were my size.

Look at the lining on the Corneliani:
Photobucket
Again, this is 40R

But GMMcL: Does it get BETTER?

Eff you. But yes.

Sport coats:
Boglioli, Brooks Bros Made in Italy, mystery guest
Photobucket

But GMMcL: Does it GET BETTER? Read 'em and Weep (Click to show)
Brooks Bros is dual vented, ticket pocket, throat latch AND LORO PIANA FABRIC
Photobucket

AND Boglioli is cashmere blend.
Photobucket

BUT GMMcL: DOES IT GET BETTER??
Yes. Yes it does. Reveal: Mystery guest (Click to show)
Photobucket
100% hand-made. I've never seen this much handwork. Feels like cashmere, too, though there is no material tag (not surprisingly). Very good condtion, though a few of the seams need attention. Fits like a 42R. But it's not my style, so available.

Oh yeah: And a case of CFL lights for less than $0.50 per bulb. Should have bought 3 cases.
Photobucket

So, on my "found by me in the wild at prices I'd be willing to pay" life list I've done: Zegna higher end (su misura, etc.), Brioni, Loro Piana (hey, it was a women's polo but it freaking counts!), RLPL, Attolini, and now true Savile Row and Isaia.

Hey Kiton: I'm coming for YOU!


Edit: The passes were many and varied -- mostly due to price. But I did see alligator belts for the first time. Three of them. One of which was Trafalgar. But the store knew what it had and priced accordingly.
post #55661 of 125403
A something is better than nothing day. Excellent condition,15 1/2-33 and available.

post #55662 of 125403

Van Spoosen was a huge 20th century brand. I believe Spoo & Son was their tie subsidiary. :)
