post #55741 of 103132

May have been asked/answered before but do any makers list a drop for a odd jacket? I've been seeing a lot of Zenga recently with drops listed that I have presumed to be orphans; am I correct?

HF for GH label: 

 

 

And I *think* this is the GH Saville Row label: 

 

 

 

 

(outside label...not in the breast pocket)

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!
