Shirt: turnbull & asser (16, old label) available
Ties: (not available) Hermes, Zegna, BB makers, Burma Bibas, Tyrwhitt, DAKS, 2x no names that felt and looked nice (check em, lemme know if I was dumb)

label (Click to show)

tie deets (Click to show)






98% sure the Hermes is real, my first found. Anyone know what this thing on the bottom of the daks is?

Wow! That's a crazy find. I've been drooling over their "1920" sweater like the one below for over a year. At $250 retail and down around $200 on sale, it's a big bullet to bite. Local shop has a few in stock, but I'm not holding my breath over finding one at a thrift store. laugh.gif

Castangia makes Battistoni's tailored stuff. Never seen one in the wild before, only at Barney's. Gorgeous stuff, really well made. What size? biggrin.gif

For whatever reason I was perusing sig links and came across Fueco's blog. Totally recommended. Unlike most blogs, this one's both well-written and informative — from carbon dating Harris Tweed labels to why Pendleton shirts are a joy to the psychology of why we thrift, et. al. Entirely worthy of a permanent bookmark imho.

Yeah, he is in Toronto/GTA. Consider yourself as thrifting with a handicap every time you go out.

First day out in DC - pair of sample denim from The West is Dead, complete with 1901 Buffalo nickel. Check the brand out if you have a minute, passionate guys with a quality vision. Available for trades in similar denim (28-30)
