Picked this up.  Originally thought it was legit, but I'm not so sure now.  It's some sort of a cotton or silk mesh material.  Pretty heavyweight.  Any help authenticating from Spoo, et al. would be much appreciated.  These are the only tags on it, no content or size tags on it.

That's gotta be a first.  I haven't seen any shoes by Huntsman here before.  Very nice find.  For help on the maker, maybe post a shot of the size and code numbers on the inside of the shoe and/or heel nail configuration.

Pair of pebble grain blutchers for Huntsman and Sons. Vibram soles, size 44. Goodyear welt and very good construction, scuffed up toes so I'm going to darken the toe areas with polish and wax.

Just some good natured trolling on my part. On a more serious note, being a Habs fan is a character flaw.

Problem with you Leafs fans is that you're too damn loyal. Your franchise has been in the shitter for the better part of 20 years and yet the Leafs are still the most valuable organization in the NHL.

I had hopes that this lockout would force Bettman to actually do something good for the game and/or throw himself off a bridge. I guess I'm sucker.

versace real and ugle vjc dont go for much.... huntsman is cool but its not "the" huntsman i beleive it was licensed by chester barrie or something a few years ago to sell in saks and barneys.. still a cool find

Thanks Androfan, it's too bad Huntsman doesn't get much love nowadays. One of the reason this pair caught my eyes was the stitching around the welt, saw that it was real and not the fake ones you see on glued on soles.

Here are the photos of the markings and sole. Kind of hard to take it with a cellphone.

I decided to stop by one of those "vintage" shops that I never go into today, only because it was on my way home from a meeting I had downtown this morning. I've really never had luck in these places, mostly because they're chock full of rayon cardigans and overpriced pea coats. Today however, I scored some sweet shit, first up, probably the nicest hat I've found yet and one that actually fits my rather large dome. I believe this to be pretty fucking old, but someone correct me if I'm wrong. Brooks Brothers made in England by Lock & Co Hatters of St. James St. London. This thing is completely pristine. It looks like is was never even tried on. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif





PRL by Corneliani hounds tooth tweed windowpane hacking jacket. Wool and angora, ticket pocket, dual vented, suede elbow patches, leather buttons, the works! Size is marked 40R, but it fits me perfect in the shoulder and sleeve so I'll be keeping this one and have my tailor take it in in the waist.





Brioni green and cream hounds tooth wool tweedish. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Tagged a 43R but seems a bit smaller.




And this showed up today from you know who. nod[1].gif


And not from a thrift store, but clothing related so I thought I'd share. This came over the weekend as a late Christmas present from my folks. It details the different tailors of Saville Row and talks about their respective history's and it also has a bunch of sweet pictures. shog[1].gif

Much appreciated, thanks.

Doesn't immediately ring a bell.  You might try the guys over at the heel and label ID thread, they know their shit: http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/hof-labels-heels-and-nail-patterns-secrets-to-id-the-maker

Love this book. Got it for Christmas last year. Great pics and a lot of detailed history of Savile Row.

No. Especially since thrifting has been so crappy for me lately.

What happened after the last lockout:



Time for history to repeat itself!

Does anyone have slightly SMALLER feet then me. I'm between a US 7 and 7.5 so a true 7?? PM me.

post #59580 of 102930
Some really amazing finds around here (and not so amazing, but whatever) I've been drooling a lot. Almost sent a few PM's, but I somehow didn't.

The past week has been pretty good to me, I'll be posting a bunch of it soon. A quick question though, is this the Dior that I'm looking for?
