Speaking of hats, I grabbed this Borsalino from Italian eBay this week. It's a nice looking grey, but I may have a wider ribbon put on it.

Are Pendleton woolen ties worth picking up?

post #57333 of 110692

I was very excited to find this, even though it had Ring around the Collar, I thought "fuck it, i'll try to get it out, I mean, How often do you find Comme des Garcons Homme Plus anyway?"

Well, I guess I was way too excited when I found it because I didnt even realize that it said "Comme des UOMO" until I get home to inspect it.

Anyone else wanna confirm this is a sorry attempt at a fake? I havent seen anything online that shows they ever used that tag and theres no material tag anywhere in the shirt to further authenticate.

Still at the same store, I think "man, there has to be more Comme des Garcons in here somewhere"...sure enough...

This one is legit, only problem is that it has 2 moth holes on the back right leg. Im trying to figure out if this is desireable enough to wear a buyer wouldnt care about the defects.

Same rack...BLAM...another...This time though it has a yellow stain on the front right leg and another stain inside the cuff at the hem...What do you guys think?...Invest the money to get a cleaner to TRY and take out the stains or just return it? Cant see it on the photo but this is the COMME DES GARCON HOMME line, not Homme Plus.

I have one that I got from someone on here and love it. I'm not sure how they sell, but always think they look great.

that fillippa k cardigan is cool, nice stuff

post #57336 of 110692

Yeah, it looks pretty awesome! Useless without pics of course, but i'll post when I get home from work. Unfortunately I never have reason to wear a tie, but for this i might have to make an excuse.

The only reason/excuse you need is to look smart. thumbs-up.gif

This last week has been all about the outerwear for me and being a Niners fan, I picked up a grail item I've been hunting for the past 15 years!

First off though, I passed on a pair of black crocodile Nettleton's earlier today in 11.5 or 12 (no mark so estimate vs my 10's). Thought of picking them up and seeing interest but had a hole worn through one of the soles (so full resole needed) and wasn't sure about customs policies for Canada to US shipping of exotics. Uppers were in solid condition but couldn't justify the hassle at the time.

Anyways, Cooper A2 flight jacket in brown goatskin size 50r. Was on the extreme end of my thrift cut of but i got excited and couldn't pass even though it doesn't fit. Available


Older Barbour Liddesdale (no inner pocket) which fits me perfectly. Although quilting is coming undone everywhere I spoke with CS at Barbour NH and they said they'd restitch for free. N/A


Calafate shearling B3 bomber in size M, made in Argentina. The leather shows a bit of wear which I actually prefer over shiny looking newer leather. Shearling is super plush and rivals any of my other 2 shearling rancher coats. Fits well but unsure if I really need another shearling.

Billingham portfolio/briefcase in canvas with leather accents, made in England. Couldn't find out much about this although I know Billingham is known for their camera bags. I have been unable to find anything about a non-camera bag line although I have heard their stuff rivals Filson in durability and construction.


William Evans tweed, insulated shooting coat in 42, made in Great Britain. Beauty of a coat which may or may not turn into my outdoor work coat. Nice and roomie for mobility and has antler (?) buttons with leather trimming and pockets for everything.

I've been a Niners fan since I was kid and had this exact bomber. One day it mysteriously disappeared and I have searching for a replacement for well over a decade. I was in SF last year and saw a homeless guy wearing one that was falling apart and for a whole 3 seconds I actually contemplated trying to buy it off of him and seeing if the drycleaners could fix it up...never happened and then I found this in a thrift...in my size...while visiting SF!

Mid 90s Chalkline SF Forty Niners gold bomber jacket in M. Fits like a glove and although nowhere near the most valuable thing I've thrifted, definitely my favorite. N/A

Hope I'm not too late, if that is at the GW in town, check the right sleeve cuff for moth holes......peepwall[1].gif

I wouldn't say the Comme des Uomo is a FAKE... since it doesn't use the same name. It's like Sean Jean using puple tags with white script text. Call it an homage, maybe? 

 

That Daks Signature is the nicest Daks I've ever seen. What size?

 

The cardigan looks very cool, congrats! Also, yes, you should pick up Zegna Su Misura if it's in good condition, not dated, etc.
