Picked up a Brooks Brothers tie with a tag I don't recognize, any idea of age? Where's the ThyphoidJones signal when I need one?

Strange synchronicity. I picked up a Hudson's Bay jacket just like yours recently as well!

Dobbs is pretty solid, especially the older stuff.  I am a 7 1/8, like hats, and though I do have 6 or so in rotation (three of which are due to DanM!), could always welcome new ones that aren't too similar from what I already have.  That brand is also fairly well-known and seems to do fairly well on the 'bay.

From a glance, looks to be vintage from 60's. I've handled a handful of those. Not bad. Very trad.

Opps, forgot to post my sources on that 60's BB tie. I've used other website resources to time tags.

Noted. I'm glad I'm not looking for mid century furniture at the moment because he is dominating those pieces. That being said pulled a few pairs of shoes the other day and popped 3 cherries...

Dacks bench made in England (Cheaney I think) oxblood long wings maybe worn a handful of times. A bit tight for my wide feet at 9d so may be available. Pretty sure they're polished binder leather (corrected grain) but they're still awesome!


Zegna dark brown chukka boot. At the cobbler getting new heels and fit so NA


Have been looking for a pair of brown tassel loafers and saw the tassels hanging off a dirty, neglected pair of shoes. It's amazing what a good clean, condition and buff will do to a decent pair of leather...

Gucci bamboo tassel loafers. Fit like a glove but not sure if i can wait til the spring to rock them or just get paid on the bay...currently NA


A bunch of threads too but the camera is down ATM so will slowly take pics with the iPad over the next few days to catch up...

Got one of those Conair Stand-Up Motorized Shoe polishers this weekend. But my wife has informed me that I have reached my (her) in-house shoe polisher limit. Brand New in the Box..... Available

You should post those Dacks in the Dacks thread.

I thrifted that precise Gant for Barneys Coop madras and wear it weekly in the summertime (and occasionally in what passes for winter in LA). One of my favorite shirts. Amazing haul overall!

Seize sur vVingt are an NYC store and brand doing mostly MTM and a few off-the-rack shirts. Really nice stuff, though probably not the absolute finest money can buy. No idea how it does on eBay, but that's my size ... PM incoming!

Pleasure is all mine, and please post a fit pic of that dinner jacket! And I doubt I'll pull that off again; it was pure synchronicity.

I in turn picked up a sweet Corneliani wool/cashmere jacket from JL3212, who was a great guy to trade with and packed the jacket (and some shoes I bought from him also) like a pro. Fit pics once back from tailor.

5/5 WOULD 3-WAY AGAIN.
