First time Hermes for me as well. One dollah to make me hollah. Let me know if, this the diet coke of Hermes.

I found this about a month or so ago based on a tip from Catside, who I promised I would post here for posterity.

Barbera Sartoriale by St. Andrews. Full canvas and generally awesome. Tagged 50R EU, but I'm able to button it, so I think it's closer to a 41 or even a 42R.

Soon to be cross posted to the trade thread, it's going to be made available at cost plus ship.

Same here, which is why I do it myself. Happy to provide instructions via PM. If you have and can thread a sewing machine, and can drive in a straight line, it's fairly straightforward.

Took these at a GW about a week ago. There were three or four sport coats that belonged to former Cincinnati Red/NY Yankee Paul O'Neal. I didn't take pictures of the full coat...needless to say they were gaudy.




Then the shock of the trip...the 60 written on the tag denotes the price.



Hoping 2013 will bring some new found finds.....

H Freeman is an MTM maker. They are still well and alive. Several shops here work with them.

Etro suit ending in 2 days, not getting a lot of bids (I think) because the guy has it listed by EU size.

Here are some other finds. One pair of shoes is unlabeled but made in England. Any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated!





If anyone is interested in "barefoot" running shoes, these are Merrell Trail Gloves in a size 10.5. Otherwise they're going up on the Bay.

If the sleeves were an inch longer I'd put up with the loose collar

These are the shirts with PTP 23 1/2,

 

Yoox has them on sale for $69, (think it's the same type shirt)
