Yes, I believe.  Awesome.

Is the Balmain I'm looking for?  Tagged 54, but fits a 40R me, so UNAVAILABLE for now.  This thing's built like a TANK, but has long arms + working cuffs, so I don't know how easy it'll be to alter.

10 1/2

They had a whole shelf of 10 1/2. I passed up 3-4 pairs of Allen Edmonds because of price, although I would have probably picked up a pair if I was going to keep them. As I was browsing the shoes a guy came in and started grabbing pairs to buy, probably picked up 5 or 6 (both the Aldens and the PRL before I saw them). He asked the cashier if they'd drop the price if he bought all of the shoes, they said no, so he started to think it over. I noticed the Polos were my size, and asked him about them. We chatted for a minute and he said he was flipping, and I told him I was, too, but asked about the Polos because they were my size (I had no idea at the time the entire rack was my size). He said he wouldn't want to buy them to flip if he knew I was going to wear them - so he ended up purchasing nothing and walking out. Seemed like a nice guy.

awesome finds by all!

 

want to say special thanks to Ocooney for a great trade, anyone who has anything this man wants, don't hold back.  Hooker4186 also hooked me up with a great deal, newer member, don't hesitate to buy/trade with him.  Finally, Digmenow, a very generous Secret Santa gift!

News to me! Are they still selling that print?! It came wrapped in ribbon from this year. It's not a big deal as it's for me, just curious!

I'm not an expert, but it looks a bit off to me. Hopefully someone can chime in and give you a definite answer!

Congrats all around to all (GMMcL, suited, bytor, et al) that have posted a huge haul in the past 24 hours! There have been some awesome things posted!

Also, I wanted to keep this face from the posted image because I thought I'd find it useful in the future...

Only two pick ups today. Alfred Dunhill Made in Italy orphan. Side vents. Ticket pocket. 95% wool 5% cashmere. I scoured the store looking for the pants. No where to be seen. Needless to say I'm going pants hunting tomorrow. According to the IDing the Maker thread, this is made by Corneliani, but unconfirmed.

I actually think it's Caruso.  I think that first post on the label thread is incorrect and was never updated:

Yes that is Caruso.
post #55733 of 103033

Well today wasn't too exciting....

 

Got some ties.... 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

From Left to Right:

 

Alexandre - Kailong Panda Print - Canali   

 

I planned to keep them all myself, but if someone really wants one and has something to trade (maybe a belt hmmm) let me know :)

Also... I left a Gieves and Hawkes Orphan coat behind... that actually fit me really nice.... was that a bad move?  I did hunt for pants but couldn't find them anywhere.

post #55734 of 103033

Depends: Hickey label or SR label?  If the former, good pass.  If the latter, depending on the pattern maybe should have kopped.

Oh, and I picked these wingtips up earlier this week. Can anybody help ID the maker? All I can make out is "Bench Made in England" on the soles and on the inside it says "Dress Collection. Made in England". There is a brand/maker name in an oval but is very worn. Starts with a C and is a fairly long name.

Levi's has been putting this mock selvedge line in their new shirts. Not selvedge, just decoration.
