Just pulled two Harris Tweed coats from the 1930s! Crazy... Also pulled a couple of nice dress shoes (one made in England no label) and the other is Fratelli Rossetti (shell cordavan I think), and a pair of Merrell Trail Gloves. Pics later...

Thanks - do you mind telling me where you were? I might just put in an order with Suddenlee if there are any left in NYC. And was the $30 a pair the full price, or were you using some kind of coupon? Thanks.

Philadelphia maker of good quality suits and jackets with no connection to Hickey-Freeman. Usually canvassed and, if not outdated, worth picking up for yourself. Limited flippabilty though.

Brandini is a no, pleated Zanellas are hit/miss (I've sold some, but I've also had a pair listed for months, granted I took shit pics and I'm too lazy to take new ones), pretty sure Brandini is shit as well as Michael by Michael Kors, H. Freeman and Sons was a Philadelphia maker that went out of business in the last 10 years or so. It isn't Hickey Freeman but it is still good quality, good for yourself or for trade but I don't think it is flippable.

Edit - "It isn't Hickey Freeman" doesn't mean "It's no Hickey Freeman," it just means they're not the same brand/maker.

Haven't shared anything in awhile, a few recent goodies.

I sold that Kato AAA for $120 cash money on the street, felt super weird but whatever. I figured that it was going to be a long time before I get my hands on another selvage shirt from the thrift stores, but on my way home: Warning: Boom! (Click to show)



to top it off, I'd been thinking about picking up this season's engineered garments CPO but was balking at the price, and found this for those of you into vintage/military:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Benjamin Bixby Cotton/Linen Safari coat - fits like a 42 drop 9-10.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Nice summer plaid Lorenzini linen. I tend to pass on Lorenzinis a lot of the time unless they're in pristine, untouched condition, as I've had a lot of duds flipping. I couldn't resist this one though.

Other than that it seems like Chicagoans have used the end of the year tax incentive to dump their 20 year old heavily padded double breasted non vented Italian suits & EZ soft synthetic shirts.

There is a connection. They were from the same family, but the companies were completely separate.
