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.

Thanks, man!

So sort of like a Mr. Sid in Boston -- not quite as stratospheric as Louis, Boston but if I find Mr. Sid house brand stuff I'd give it two hard looks before passing.

Was hoping you'd see my post but I am lucky to read 1/3 of what goes on here so I had no expectations. Happy Holidays.

I've found some DB stuff that's worked its way into the rotation and I get lots of compliments when I do it right. I also get similar comments to yours ("I haven't worn or seen anyone in a DB since [insert something here in the range of 1985-90], but that looks good on you"). The one that gets the most "looking good today!" is that damn Polo linen DB blazer with the "guaranteed to wrinkle" tag on the inside I poasted earlier this year...



...that doesn't mean they're coming back in fashion or anything. Let's not go that far. But rather...you can pull off the style if you combo-ize intelligently and double check Flusser & Roetzel's (and DigMeNow's) thoughts.

Found a few things, no pics yet.

 

VTG Big E Levi's jacket...probably mid 60s. Tag is faded, but fits near a 38

Ancient J. Riggins for Sears Mackinaw cruiser-style jacket.  The lining has seen better days, but one of the nicer pieces of vintage outerwear I've picked up. No size tag, but again fits like a 38

Two pairs of Zanella Bennett, one of which is LP Super 130s. 31 x 32

Ridiculous Brooks Brothers FU unlined striped seersucker sport coat. 40R

VTG Issey Miyake women's shirt. Medium

 

Oh, and here's a SW&D thrift fit.  Flame on.  Admittedly, it is a bad photo.

 

 

 

Cooper down bomber (from rayxlui)

Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme vest (thrifted)

Issey Miyake Men hidden placket button down shirt (thrifted)

Helmut Lang waxed denim (from mainy)

Buttero side zip suede boots (eBay)

I personally wear a Brioni tux when I thrift to show people what's what.

I wear my white-waxed Naked and Famous jeans and blue suede boots with gum soles...about as douchey as I'm willing to go for Goodwill.

The one time I bumped into Dallas's preeminent man of used cloths, he looked like a homeless person. biggrin.gif

First off, I wanted to give BIG THANKS to Nataku for the shirt. It fits perfectly and looks great, and it's just what I needed. Until I can repay the favour, I'm putting a curse on every Minnesota flipper for ya.

Everything thrifted or SF acquired except for the shirt. It's Zara Man but the nicest ecru I've seen.
Jacket: Franco Ercole in Brooklyn
Tie: no name knit
PS: no name ivory silk
Denim: LVc 501s (from barrelntrigger)
Shoes: Florsheim (from GMMcL)

 

Love the top, love the bottom (with a bit less cuff) but together they seem incongruous. Some slacks would have made this fit great.

Yes - send directly to me.

Surely not?! This guy was the consummate but scummy pro I mentioned earlier, the one who relished in spreading misinformation, using Frenchy-like strong-arm tactics, blockading aisles and deploying decoy ties. He gave me his eBay ID but it didn't check out. laugh.gif

Why? Were you in PA today? Did you see me out? I try to look as misfortunate as possible.
