Owch! I hate seeing what I missed. Ignorance is bliss in this case.


Slow day today. Couple ties and a couple pairs of jeans. All are available. Couldn't even fit one leg into the Naked & Famous. laugh.gif

Really kicking myself for not getting out an hour or two earlier. Found these two super recent Hermes ties. One was stashed in the pocket of a pair of pants facing the inside of the rack. Someone must have ran out of money or something and stashed it. The guy likely donated more. ffffuuuu.gif

I don't know if I would bother myself with measurements and pics for that.

Think I made some good scores today, including my first Loro Piana

 

First up, i think this is a vintage Abercrombie & Fitch made in New Zealand , let me know what you guys think, hope it was worth the ten spot investment.  It is missing the bottom button but there is an extra button inside, so I just need to talk my wife into fixing that :)

 

Also got a couple Ted Baker, Jil Sander and a really nice Heritage Limited Edition Pendleton.

I've been hitting the local thrift stores recently and picked up these 6 dress shirts for myself. Although they're my neck size, the sleeve's are too long, and the tailor's alteration cost is prohibitive .

So here they are, all available.

T.M. Lewin 15 X 34 FC

Hilditch and Key 15 X 34 FC

Pink 15 X 33.5 FC  (X2)

Ermengildo Zegna 15 X 34 FC

Or as I frequently ask myself, "You're happy to wear clothes that someone else wore for a while and threw away, but you're bothered by a label that no one's going to see?"

If anyone is interested in this sweater, I would advise them to go after it. This summer I found up a handful of vintage Alan Paine shetland sweaters and I wear them almost everyday. They look great and actually have a bit of a tailored fit. Just my .02.

 

Today - 4 Paul Stuart Suits, staple colors, about a 41/42 + my first ever Savile Row find. (Crappy) Pics to come (hopefully) tomorrow.

I buy 50 year old suits and they look like new, workmanship visible, and people notice. JosABank suits fit me well. But after few wears they look like Scheiße. Fit does matter but it seems quality is part of the fit in the long run.

I never want that link to expire.
