Also, does anyone know this Gant label?

Contrary to some on here the Gant above is a decent find depending on what you pay for it $4-7 is good.  I think that model has shell buttons, likely 70's, USA made.  Comfy too. Lots better than the new stuff with the exception of the Bastian & Gant Ruggers.  I have the exact model on Ebay right now in fact. 

 

 Thanks, man. I thought it was on the older side (the collars are a bit big), but I really like it. I wore it to work yesterday for the second time (I actually found it in February last year). The only issue is that the sleeves are about 1/2" shorter than I'd like. Can't win 'em all, eh? IIRC, I paid $3. I don't think that store knew what they had.

Dual vented, 3/2 roll


I have honestly no clue how you guys ID by tags, so is this St Andrews or Attolini? I'm guessing the latter due to the styling?


tentatively NA - checking my dad's measurements

 

I own this exact jacket... My favorite in my closet. Why couldn't it be a 54!!!

Among today's finds at half-price SA day ($2.50 a pop), Italian pants. They fit. Unfamiliar brands. Where do they fit on the food chain? "Generic Uomo?"



the middle one is 140s + cashmere, discovered with "feel test"

I like the older ones as well, even the regular oxford cloth ones. I keep the ones that fit me and Ebay the rest. Hey, anytime I can buy one for $3 and sell for $15-20 is ok in my book. Once I found an old Woolster Gant and the CEO of Gant, USA bought it from me off Ebay.

Wow! This eBay steal of the century!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But Gaddamn! 33.5 in. length? Is this an overcoat?

Yeah, that measurement was total, not BOC, so it fits perfectly!!!!
post #60355 of 102856

people expressed intrested when I posted my first modern tailor shirt so I thought I would make a follow up post'

sleeves are finally long enough although I think I will shorten then by 1/4 of an inch, something is still sort of weird in the chest area I don't know if it is the yoke measurement the arm opening or the pit to pit but something is either too small or too large I should be able to get it right in the next couple shirts it is not that big of a deal

 

AppleMark

cool monogram....

 

 

 

AppleMark

now I have some choices to make...

I passed on a Paul and Shark yachting double breasted navy blazer, made in Italy, that was missing a button.  Size XXL.  Was that a mistake?

Yup, excellent find! I have found quite a few Frays and they are some of my favorite shirts. Amazing details and a good amount of handwork.


As for me, only thing I found today was a pair of recent (red label) Isaia flat front charcoal trousers. 34 (+2") x 35
