This makes me think of EazyE. If it's his size. He has a Coogi Museum/Shrine in his apt., you know.

The purple-on-purple subtle herringbone baby alpaca DB fits me like a glove, sleeve length and everything, and since I have an alpaca fetish it's an automatic instant hit. Really? a PURPLE DB jacket? It has to work. Alpaca!!!!!! With jeans and a black turtleneck. Or something. (Suggestions on what pants to go with this thing quite welcome. Felix the Cat I'm lookn at you!)

Connecticut thrift brethren, you familiar with the label? History? Seem well made, fully lined, not a ton of handwork, union tags in both. The beige houndstooth is a solid 42R, a tad too big for me and not worth the alteration cost but the alpaca...score (in my style universe, which sometimes seems a bit parallel from "SF approved," hahahah, which we all know is akin to the pejorative phrase "politically correct" ).

Congrats! The ones I found were also $23 a pair. However, they're not "on to us" as there were some lightly worn Made in India Cole Haans for $23, as well nod[1].gif

Did a quick styleforum search and came up with this thread:

Reviews are fair to good. The canvassing and the cut gels with what I found. Also, did a fleabay search and there were a few suits, which range $50 to $100 BIN. Not too impressive. For me, it could be one of those brands like Southwick that has fans here and Askandy, but not "out there."

Enson is a fairly good men's store in New Haven. Sells lower high end stuff and can order high end stuff. Tailor on premises does bespoke I think. First class service always and not that pricey. They used to have branded apparel, most likely from likes of Southwick. Store branded stuff quality was top notch, shetlands from Scotland etc.
I haven't worn DB since my wedding many years ago. But I would wear the tan with brown tones flannel, maybe, maybe brown corduroy. Purple: anything goes mate from grey, navy etc gabardine to jeans.

Reminds me.  I found a first for me... legit bespoke Gieves and Hawkes jacket (made in their tailoring house, not HF, D'Avenza, or Chester Barrie).  Unfortunately had to leave it due to awful moth holes...

 

Picked up a few items today... among them an orphan.  Recent Zegna Couture orphan, no major flaws, $3.  Couldn't leave it on the rack if I tried.

^^ I come across Trussini a lot on my rounds and I am sure that they are not the house brand for Boyd's, however, this is probably the store where they are most stocked. Trussini makes fantastic pieces and are often compared to Caruso and Canali. They have almost no flip value whatsoever with the exception of selling a cashmere piece for not a sum which you would waste your time. Great for personal use, not so much for anything else.

 

I haven't been able to post in a while but I am out of town and found some post worthy items. Post on x-mas in addition to my SS gift. Super excited by that! Happy Holidays all!

I used Alden's Restoration service for a pair of their cordovan saddle oxfords I inherited from my grandfather. They resoled and re-lasted them, plus gave me new shoe trees, bags, and a great polish. I think I paid $150.

I have a hard time finding jackets, so I settled for this one. Would you guys wear this pattern?

 

I found a Rugby RL rugby for myself, and a bunch of great outdoor gear by Patagonia, NWT Arc Teryx women's running jacket, OR, Mountain Hardware, Ibex, REI and Sierra Designs stuff for ebay or store credit at my local store that sells used stuff.

Definitely, brown herringbone is a classic fall/winter pattern and the windowpane helps set it apart.  Nice finds.

 

PM sent on the Canali.

Looks good! Good find!

I forgot to mention that I saw a North Face down mummy bag for $40 or $50. There was no indication as to what fill or model it was, but if anyone needs a bag, I can go back tomorrow. It was blue, regular length.

 

Also found these club monaco 32x32 pants. I really want to keep them. How much can the waist of pants be taken in?

+3 for me on the herringbone. Very versatile and classic. Dress it up and dress it down (with denim).
