PM sent on the BB Maker tie. I know at least one member on here fancy those.

Trend Corneliani NWT Wool/Cashmere unlined sport coat.  I know these are not the same quality construction as the mainline, and it feels fused, but for the price I could not pass it up (90% off retail at Marshalls) - not available

 

 

 

 

 

Bespoke suit - Holland & Sherry fabric - working buttons, single pleat pants.  Fits like a glove but sending to my tailor to take out the pants a tad.  Not Available.

 

 

 

 

BR Made in Italy (who makes these again) - in my size so not available

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Villa Bolgheri - pattern looks like rose buds.  

 

 

 

 

Brioni - the light streaks toward the top of this first picture are a subtle pattern in the silk that is seen/unseen based on direction of the light.  Pretty neat.

 

 

 

 

Altea Milano

 

 

 

 

 

Shirts - all available.  No stains or yellow collars.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I didn't actually thrift it but thought it was neat/humorous.

 

 

I'm pretty sure Lardini make for BB so BB Italy made are most likely by them. Hope this helps.

2nd thrift fit EVER. Was going for a EazyE look the other day w/ my new RRL tweed jacket. I know Sleeves are waaay too long, but its going to the tailor soon, I haven't had a piece of clothing i've wanted to wear this badly for a long time though, so fuck it! Pants have a subtle salmon-ish check to them that doesn't come across well in pics. Also, for everyone who didn't see my last pic, IM WHITE! Suprise! (i guess, i didn't realize that was the public perception of me till last time LOL)

 

Also, INCOMING, I fit all of this:

I'm going to have to agree on this as well. It's a pretty cool jacket, but too big. Sell it and put an ebay notification for the same jacket but in a smaller size. Not only will it fit a whole lot better, but the cost difference between selling and buying will most likely be a lot less than alterations.

Not to pile on but yeah, too big. Like way too big. Like David Byrne too big.

YIkes, I have to agree with Wes, here, bro...I guess it's time to get your bench up to 350 lbs. so you can fit that! thumbs-up.gif

As a follow up to my last post: I stopped by a new place this morning and didn't have much time however there was a truly massive selection of top quality shoes. Dozens of Allen Edmonds, Florsheim, Mezlan, Johnston & Murphy, Cole Haan as well as a larger pair of Crockett & Jones and a smaller pair of Alden's. They were all in very good condition, some very much wearable in the condition they were in and some that with a little TLC would have been almost like new! If anyone is looking for anything in particular let me know. Rey had wing tips, cap toes, loafers and driving shoes. Really a remarkable election. Next time I have a chance ill take some more time and really look at sizes and what not.

Does anyone know when APC switched from button to zipper fly (or if they still do both)?



Quick thrift fit. Excuse the mess, taken in my buddy's room while I was in transit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Mabis from Hans - Huge thanks, very generous with these

Pants will be too slim for most, but I'm in an environment where classic isn't necessary

My unspoken fears... spoken lol. I thought when I put it on " i look like a brick", but I like it sooooo much. Oh well, to Ebay she goes. I should be able to get more than $125 out of that bad boy, right?!

Ok, Suits/SC forthcoming later. Again, im sorry if this is long, but I used to spoiler everything and no one sees anything and then I get PM's like, "how'd I miss that" etc etc. Its all pretty good stuff, so deal with it.

This is the bomber you're looking for, right?

 

NM Lizard, great shape ~9D

6x Bills FF 38x34 or longer

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh hai, 8x Brioni Cannes size 40

Trafalgar 2000 limited editon

T/A tux shirt, 16

 

 

 

 

for a BIG man 18.5x36.5

 

fred perry M

Fairfax for barneys, never heard any of this, but its the only shirt i've seen other than borelli with buttons this big!

 

 

wearing this to my next rave... lol

 

 

 

Is this the caruso? Diffusion? Nice shirt.

OG FF Blackwatch, (sansabelt but who cares?)

 

I'm assuming this is real, because if it was fake they could at least get closer to the label im familiar with, right?

BR XL (so was the other)

 

XL PS with logo (awesome)

 

16-35-36 slimfit varvatos USA

 

 

 

DOPE Bally Moto (keeping for now, see fit, this is how its supposed to fit, right? (short that is)

 

 

PS 15.5 brioni and borelli 16.5

Aquascutum trench NA as i've been looking for one for awhile and my size.

 

RLBL cherry popped!

PRL country, popped! This stuff is supposed to be $$$ right? XL

 

 

 

Old enough to be valuable?

This is real military/navy issue right? IF so school me on age/miliary issue stuff in general, PLEASE, I know some of it is valuable, and see a lot but always pass due to ignorance.

 

Apparently this isn't as cool as i though, but oh well, i think its still worth some scrilla.

 

 

 

 

Is this a boglioli summer line? Its really, really nice linen with MOP, and im keeping, but was curious.

 

Cherry popped, my size so NA

 

4x burberry for the bay Xl L L M

Finally! A solid navy tie YAY.

SC and suits later.

FIN.
