Moral of the story is always check what's on the mannequins!

 

Awesome find, and 50 points for use of the word 'chuffed.'

Busy weekend for me.

I picked this overcoat up last night. A beautiful inky blue mohair/wool winter overcoat with a gorgeous nap and a two-colour overlaid windowpane. My pics don't do it justice at all.
It was -24C (-12F) last night with a howling north wind. I guess something was subconsciously telling me I needed it. Anyone here from Montreal? It's from Brunet Freres on Wellington in Verdun. IS it still around? I'm sure this from the late-50s or early-60s.





A Pal Zileri Gruppo Forall pinstripe suit


An Alpha Industries USAF MA-1 repro flight jacket


A Lacoste - Izod Harrington


A bunch of Harris Tweeds.




A private label Harry Rosen jacket.


Two Boss jackets.



And some Banana Republics for ebay.

Awesome find! Barena has been around for awhile, recently they've been getting more attention stateside. Very on trend, and a recent looking piece. Sweet!

I did a day trip in the summer. I didn't stop in O'Connell's as it would have been just to look and I ran out of energy. I found the thrift stores a disappointment compared to the ones in Rochester. I know one visit can't tell you much about the intake, but most places looked like a hole-in-the-wall compared to the retail-style stores here.

I'm not sure from this angle, but that may be a sleeve pitch issue.

Welcome, friend. We live by a single rule here: Pics or it didn't happen. There are no exceptions.
Or not. Sounds like you'd have snagged them.
Nice fit! Looks great!
Nice finds!

Highlife: Great shirt haul! Always impressed when I see Hermes non-ties.

Thanks- my first non-tie Hermes finds, both appear legit from what I can gather....bummed about the hole in the pants.

Lastly, a Luciano Barbera Collectione Sartoriale 42. Definitely an Orphan. Can pass as a SC IMO, only problem is that it's unvented. Fabric has a green tinge, hard to capture on camera. Who's the maker? Edit: Looks like St Andrews icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
