Other find I'm particularly chuffed with - T&A 100% cashmere sweater. A bit of piing but no major issues and nothing that a once over with a razor won't fix.
Moral of the story is always check what's on the mannequins!
Burberry's rebranding strategy included dropping the apostrophe-S in 1998.
'1998 - Bravo taps Italian designer Roberto Menichetti to launch the designer Burberry Prorsum line. Photographer Mario Testino is hired to retouch the brand’s image, newly rebranded as Burberry (dropping the “s”). Cool Britannia models Stella Tennant and Kate Moss will embody Burberry’s new spirit in Testino’s black-and-white ad campaigns. The Diana tartan—pale blue with navy, black, and red stripes—introduced in memory of the late Princess of Wales. Alexis Bittar designs the brand’s first ready-to-wear jewelry collection. Vogue staffer Katherine Betts profiles Menichetti in the December story “Check Mate.” '
Vintage ski hat
Patchwork tartan scarf by Bay Country Classics
Woolrich hand knit sweater
Woolrich down puffer vest
Levis cords, not thrifted
Vintage Scarpa mountaineering boots from the other day.
And this Pendleton plaid news boy cap and hand-rolled silk scarf for my wife.
Awesome find, and 50 points for use of the word 'chuffed.'
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.

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'm not sure from this angle, but that may be a sleeve pitch issue.
Year started slow, first finds not available. I am trying to be choosy.

Awesome haul, catside!
:popcorn: That's saying something.
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!
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.
And this Polo Ralph Lauren jacket. 3 roll 2, throat latch, leather elbow patches, heavy wool. Awesome details. Been looking for something like this all winter.

That polo jacket is badass
You must post a fit pic with those.......been on the lookout for a pair of patch madras pants for myself, jealous!
