Yes, Canali definitely does and (I think) Corneliani and Zegna do.

Thanks! Looks like I've made a few mistakes recently.

Someone make sense of these shoes for me. First off, they're beat to death, so I passed. They are Made in England PRL with J.M.Weston soles. Weston doesn't make shoes in England, that I know of, and I've never seen them make shoes for Polo. Any ideas?

Today's non-passes were Zegna double vented, 2 button, staple grey nailhead.



Paul Stuart silk navy, dotted knit tie.



And this little gem (and I do mean little). Turnbull and Asser crocodile belt, size 26.

Hmmm I did have the Savile Row tag.... I should've snagged a pic, wasn't thinking.  I will see if it's still around next time I go through.  

 

thanks a bunch for the info :)

That belt is amazing Tonylumpkin, regardless of size.

Had a few things today:

Links/studs to finalize my fully thrifted formal outfit, links I liked and a NOS pigskin breast wallet


JPress herringbone overcoat. 21.5" P2P, I guess 36-38? Available.

PRL made in Italy by Corneliani. 44L. Sorry for the crappy picture. Top button needs to be re-fastened, but otherwise in good shape. Available.

And some Sulka ties. Pre-dibbed to Andro as he has the Sulka SC I found. The feel of these is weird...unnaturally silky, like the cheap rayon ties, but more substantial.


Cheers,
O

Cool overcoat! If no one PMs you, let me know smile.gif

Re: Sulka ties. Could they be Ancient Madder? I can't tell if yours are, but they have a different feel to them, best described here:

Saw this today, wondered if anyone recognized it... It was hand numbered I think 19/50, had a name like "Correscape" and the signature looked like Guy Denmmark. No clue though what it's really called/who it's by.

A new frame / glass and this thing would make this... well I don't know.

 

Did pick up some cool books- A tall narrow one called Skyscrapers that has stunning black and white architectural work in it

 

For the geek in me, a book self-published by Hughes that covers the history of its space / communications work, full of cool satellite illustrations

 

 

Oh and this...

Might as well... (Click to show)

 

This thing is huge. I would have tried shooting a pic it while wearing, but the damn thing smelled like

 

It needs to be cleaned for sure. There's some spots that I think will come out, and that smell, but I think it'll be good to go when it's done.

I have a BB ancient madder and it feels almost powdery...definitely different, but not like these.
This explains a bit more about the process:

And I will let you know on the overcoat.

Thanks mate! Easy come, easy go I always say!

Anyhoo, today's finds:

My first LP....with a stain on the chest pocket. Available for cost+shipping if someone wants to try out the treatment. Size L, chunky ass buttons.



3 pairs of Aldens - 2 shells, 1 calf. All pretty beat but still worth trying to flip on the 'bay.





I also passed on a skeet blanket with a big white stain on the front...I always thought that name was a joke...

My first! - UNAVAILABLE - Also, it's going to be 60 and rainy Monday, so this is PERFECT!

Finally , finally got out today and hit up some of my spots. It's been too long. First up, this sweet green surcingle belt by Torino, never heard of the brand but the quality is one par if not better than Trafalgar. Looks to be never worn as well, the leather is still super stiff. Who doesn't want a green belt, what the fuck. N/A


My second Barbour find ever, this glen plaid scarf. N/A


This ultra trad green tweed blazer for myself from The Cambridge shop. Fits like a glove, soft shoulders, undarted, hook vent, 3 roll 2 with skinny lapels. N/A



Herringbone blazer from the Andover Shop, around a 42, available



Ebbits Field Flannel Red Socks baseball jacket. Besides two chipped buttons, the thing looks unworn. N/A for the moment.


And my third Barbour find ever, this is a size medium. I know one of you gents has this jacket in a small they want to trade me. Otherwise, this is going to one of my buddy's as a Christmas present.

The thrift find synergy in this thread is unreal. It's like a barbour whirlwind right now.
