I have a small one in my sig that isn't nearly complete because I only put people on the list who ask to be (i.e. if you want to work in stealth, that's your prerogative)

Couple Silk Pocket Squares; A. Rivetz (couldn't find anything about):

BTW we all pretty much agree Polo University club = dated, sustandard diffusion, it was the 1980s version of today's "Ralph" or "Lauren," ugh. The Rivetz, though, was a Boston company that made ties and obviously pocket squares...until Mr. Rivetz joined Mr. Lauren to launch the Polo line (Rivetz was in charge of ties). No one brags about picking up Rivetz stuff except me hahahahahah (PM me if you want to sell/swap those PSs)

Hey guys, sorry to bring this up again but still after an answer if anyone has any idea who made Holt Renfrew Made In England Overcoats, as I have a Wool/Cashmere 50/50 blend one in amazing condition that no one here showed interest in, so I am hoping to get some more info before going to the 'Bay with it.

 

Of course it is still available as well...

 

Pics again:

I'm going back tomorrow and see if they'll still consider letting me have it for that price (or maybe less).

Well, I went back on Friday and asked what they were willing to do on the Ferragamo since it hadn't sold the previous day when it was 50% off. I got it for $34, which I thought was fair. I hadn't looked at size or anything the day before since I thought it was more than I'd be willing to pay. Turns out its my size and fits like a glove. 100% cashmere and lots of hand work. No one has offered any guesses as to the maker over in the tagsand labels thread. I'm thinking old Zegna, but I can't find anything to verify that. Any guesses here?

Also picked up 4 Ascot Chang shirts. Two are custom made and two are tagged 16/34, but they all measure more like 15.5/34. Two are Thomas Mason shirtings, one Alumo and one untagged. There is some yellowing at the collars and some of the armpits, but nothing that the Oxyclean method wouldn't take care of. Available.

Or if you really don't trust your hand on suits, open the jacket up and look to see if the content tag is from Canali or Caruso.

 

The link that evil abed put up a while ago to a JefferyD post about collar construction has been very helpful for me in quickly identifying good construction in jackets. It's literally a 3 second test that tells you if you need to look at any of the rest of it.
