Thank you for giving it a good home! It was great meeting you as well. Haha, I probably wouldn't even notice the hanger was gone if you didn't mention it at the end. I have so many! Definitely will post a fit pic when I get them back from the tailor!
Shoutout to Achilles. It was great seeing you again and had a great time hitting the stores with ya!
Agreed! A great way to spend the afternoon.
Thanks to Nataku and .... (I actually don't know his username, and don't want to use his real name just in case haha) both of you guys were great to learn from!
I steamed the crap out of that Bullock and Jones coat and I am wearing it tonight haha
Also, anyone know anything about who makes Saks cashmere items from England?
Sorry for the crappy pictures, I have terrible lighting in my in laws spare room.
The kilgour french and stanbury charcoal suit is a flannel three piece. I think its a 42 or 44. Not sure if I would ever wear it haha
The saks 5th ave cashmere polo sweater is xxl.
The zegna trofeo fabric suit is custom made for a 46, as is the gray and blue plaid SC. (dual vents, flat front pants for the light gray wool suit)
Allen Edmonds are size 11 and brown, excellent condition.
The Bullock and Jones was mine thanks to Nataku pointing it out, absolutely love the coat, a navy herringbone Might be the only thing I end up keeping, but oh well.
BIG SHOUT OUT
Nataku for some RLPL flat front khakis.
capnwes for a baller overcoat. (hope you dont mind me using your pictures)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)I needed somewhere to put my sword!! (Click to show)
That's not a seam split. As far as I have been able to find in the past on these, it would be for passing a sword through to the scabbard awaiting under the coat.
and last but not least to cesarc (for almost finding me a tux)
Little PSA - there are some nice shoes going for half off on BB's website right now, including these C&J PTBs.
I appreciate you guys mentioning these sales and "under the radar" ebay items, etc. (Actually, my wallet doesn't appreciate it ) This is one of the few threads that i visit regularly here in SF. This is a great thread/community.

I also wanted to say that Kent Brushes had some great deals on double sided brushes. It appears that they're sold out, but I got one along with a shave set. Those are still available:
In other news, still without internet until next week. It's killing me. I recently moved and have painted, installed light fixtures, repaired walls, etc., and am completely exhausted. I've used my entire 2 week Christmas holiday getting things together, but by the time I go back to work next week it should be mostly finished. On the plus side, we now used a small bedroom for our closet, thus doubling my closet space
I hit one store and found a herringbone alpaca scarf made for Unicef. Pics to come if anyone's actually interested in such a simple find.
Um, are you not showing the sides because they have the huge polo logo on them?
Probably not for a profit. Monograms pretty much kill their value. And from what I understand wont come out.
Also, custom shirts are pretty hard to sell... you need to be that persons exact size.
