QUIZ OF THE DAY

 

Anyone see something contradictory in these photos? 

 

 

 

 

Normally I would state, from the date, that this sport coat is from 1980.....simple right?

However the union tag indicates the latest date of 1976. 

I suppose the coat could have been on the rack for 4 years before it was altered to Mr Sechrist's measurements and stamped with the date.

 

Now for the full shot of this masterpiece...

Too funny!  I didn't even notice he was in a bathroom taking the photo... Good eyes!

Wow, been a while since I've been up here. I see people are still killing it! Happy New Years guys, sorry I've been gone a while. First semester of law school didn't want to be distracted, plus, living out here in Michigan, the pickings seem slim (but I haven't had a chance to look around yet. Might spend some time these last few days of break browsing). Got some requests I wanted to see if anyone could fulfill before turning to the bay though.

1. Anyone got a Ski type jacket or maybe a down jacket available? I've got some decent jackets and the cold hasn't killed me yet out here, but I'm hoping to hit some slopes with classmates and don't think anything I have will suffice, plus I need to upgrade.

2. Also, any gloves? It's January in Michigan and I still don't own any gloves. I kept saying I'd come up here before the semester started but nothing.

3. Finally, some boots in 9-9.5 (10 may work) that I can wear in the snow. Doubt it's happening but you never know.

BTW if anyone remembers it or is interested, I still have that Corneliani Linea Sartoria jacket that someone can have at cost + shipping (I think it was $12.99)

Edit: Damnit, this would've been better in the official buy/sell/trade thread. My bad guys. All well, at least you know I'm still alive out here.

Sorry E, this one is too big for you....but it is my size.

 

Don't be sad though, I may have some candy for you this week...pending measurements.

That jacket is fantastic!

Not sure if this is coincidence or what - I've not been finding super nice things lately, but a lot from the same labels:

 

For some reason I've thrifting at least 6 new Hart Schaffner Marx jackets lately from different places.  Tags generally mostly off, but still sewn pockets and often still with the sleeve tag on it.  Usually they are from Nordstrom (1887) but here's one as a standalone:

 

 

 

And another from their "comfort" line:

 

 

 

 

 

Also, Jack Victor seems to be more available everywhere.  This one is my third in the past few days, but I've left another 5 or more behind.

Label:

 

 

 

 

Also I've found more Thomas Pink lately.  Here's another one just a bit too big for me:

 

 

 

 

 

And after finding my first Aquascutum (overcoat) on Friday, I found my first SC.

Depends what its on whether its worth the pickup, if you're thinking flip, not much flippability on Sanyo unless its something special.

Thanks for the info.

Just a women's trench.

Crank the belt tighter a notch or two, you're wearing it too loose. Idea is, you can sit on the seat without the leather binding/folding and be able to hold the handlebar grips and zip em right when its cold with your gloves on and don't freeze youself.

THat actually looks pretty OK, fitwise. One question -- do you have long arms? The arms look right on that jacket and they should be buckling a bit with what seems like extra length. I am guessing you find a lot of jackets in a 40 that have arms too short because either they came that way or they have been altered to fit dudes with shorter arms?

That's the problem with real moto jackets vs what bikers call "fashion leather": The leather is twice to three times as thick, so it's stiffer even when broken in so it doesn't sit right for a WAYWRN fit pic, ever, and the arms should always look 2-3" too long when at your sides if it's right in the shoulders. If you pantomime holding handlebars with your arms outstretched in front of you, sleeves should be just about exactly right.

you might need a tall size?

 

Aah, thanks for the primer. I know so little about bike jackets... just that this one looked awesome, was heavy as fuck and seemed to be good quality.

 

In response to your query, that's precisely my problem. I've got a bit of the Ian Erickson syndrome... Regular in the body but Long in the arms. The sleeves on this one just about hit my wrist, which I guess makes them too short (guess that's why there are zippers on the cuffs, too). But since I'm not likely to actually do any biking, I'm not sure how big a deal that is.

I hear ya, I've been finding a lot of Moores suits and old London Fog raincoats lately. Lots of Perry Ellis too.

Every thrift I go in in Vancouver is FULL of Moores/Perry Ellis - it's out of hand.  90% of suits and SC's are moores here, clearly we have no real tailors :s

You should have left every item pictured (unless for personal use, but even still, probably), except possibly the Thomas Pink.
