post #58816 of 118149
I passed on this because it was badly stained, super old or super fake?

post #58817 of 118149

Away from Atlanta for the holiday, I ran into this little number, a flannel tux jacket with tails. It had been paired with random tux pants (I think) and a bowtie and cumberbund for $130ish. Still, it fit, was awesome and is close to 80 years old. At half that price, I would have picked it up.

 

It's really a shame it was so much.

Should point out that they've mixed pieces and see if they will sell you just the coat. Black bows and a cummerbund don't go with tails, only tuxedos. Does it have a single button? It's hard to tell from the photo's exposure, but the cut-away looks look a morning coat, which would go with striped or checked trousers. Evening tailcoats don't close in the front and have a more severe cut-away.

Though you'd probably have even less call for morning dress than for a tuxedo. Even so, I still want a proper vintage kit.

Whoops, my bad. Browsing this thread is a pain in the ass on an iPad, using finger to scroll down often unintentionally opens spoilers.

Thanks, Grendel!  I kopped 2 for that price.

 

Did the same, kopped two. Incredible price, but they're going fast.

Spoo, it's good to remind us every once in a while of your true grit.  Tweets, nice job to you too.  It's been so ridiculous on the thread the last couple of days that it's almost redundant to compliment everyone on their finds.  Nice job, all.

 

I found what is for me lots of stuff today and yesterday, with a few sad passes.  Most notably, a 17" blue Canali shirt w/ spread collar that had a slight discoloration, a light spot just to the right of where a tie would knot; wasn't super-noticeable at first, can go back for it if someone wants to gamble on it.  Otherwise it looked immaculate.

 

 

Unavailable

 

Crazy retro/vintage 70's double-vented 3-piece that fits me like a glove.  Don't know if I'm just going to try so hard to rock this or if I am going to rock this hard...

+1 Coped on 1. Didn't read the size 1 up...Hopefully it fits! Well, I have a Boglioi SC in a size 40 and it fits me well so the size 50 should fit...If not, I'll throw it on the Bay.
