ebay brag, hopefully the first of many coming up... 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polo-Ralph-Lauren-Corduroy-Blazer-/130837008849?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=KigQX1%252Fe3m%252FMwBd4jk11W8qohQU%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

 

 

that is like proxy prices but I don't even owe anyone a favor afterwords...

 

only problem is that I just bought a cord blazer but prl jackets seem to fit me better than anything else... if it doesn't work out I will pass it off to a forum member

This confuses me. I've heard that Dunhill Tailors (NY) and Dunhill (Alfred Dunhill) aren't affiliated in any way, but I am pretty sure this is a Dunhill Tailors piece. Why would the use the Dunhill (Alfred) font/logo? puzzled.gif

They are definitely unrelated. My guess is Dunhill Tailors above is a dunhill mtm or bespoke line.

If this is correct, Alfred Dunhill bought Dunhill Tailors in the mid 80s.

That thing is BAD. ASS.

Fully canvassed, single vent, surgeons cuffs! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







That thing looks freaking awesome. If I didn't have, like, 3 just like it, I'd be all over that. Aw, who am I kidding: PM on its way.

Check your box. (Yes, I see it.)

After a little research I think its just the fabric maker.
True, historically Crombie is a fabric maker. But they have had an actual garment line in recent years. I don't know for sure or by whom, but I think it's produced under license.

I found some decent stuff just before I left for my business trip. I will add them to the other stuff I haven't had time to brag about, but I will note that this haul includes a pair of NWT Brunello Cucinelli beige moleskin trousers (denim-style) at TJX. Large size, I think -- US 46. Available at proxy, but be warned, that's over a benjy with shipping. Get at me before I throw them on the Bay and/or return them (28 days and counting).
(Oh, the upcoming haul also includes a 100% cashmere Samuelsohn for Paul Stuart houndstooth tweed -- MY SIZE!!)

Heh, unfortunately I didn't get to see that before he took it down (or the mods somehow tracked him all the way to Tumblr). I'm sure it was some amusing douchebaggery he didn't really mean. And he can say what he wants... unless he left a staple Brioni suit as "scraps" at the Lansdowne VV a few months ago, I beat his ass to at least something.

Finally a week behind deadboy but picked up my own Schott perfecto leather jacket in great vintage condition sz40 and fits but definitely not my style

 

Dude... if that BBGF has arms on the longish side and you don't want to keep it, get at me. I've been doing my part to keep the thrifts clear for ya in the past two weeks by working all my damn 10-11 hour days.

 

And nice find on the Schott, looks to be the exact model I found. Did you find it north of the city perchance (at the VVV)?

I picked up a pair almost exactly like that a month ago at the Holt Renfrew outlet, so I'm guessing they're pretty recent. Mine had an identical button fly.

post #60913 of 110257

Sleeves and overall length look a touch long, but shoulders, chest, waist, arm width, all look spot-on.  Button stance might be a sliver high, but since high-gorge and high button-stance are fashionable, looks good.

And JPMorris, cheers.gif

post #60914 of 110257

Ok, last part of my haul (i'm dissapointed I got 0 props for fitting all this shit in my Z4, that was the most amazing feat of all! lol)

44R briiiiiiioni, most recent NM tag, i think. perfect (sorry some bros, i dont pull 10x brioni at a time, ive gotta be content with 2x a whop)

 

 

Trying hard to show the VERY subtle check within the grey

OHHHHHHHH i know others have thrifted brioni tuxedos, but i don't remember one being posted, this is my greatest find ever, with my RLPL cashmere suit, and this is prob worth more since the other was off white and soooooo baller/sooooo pimptastic

 

 

Whats the coolest part of all?! MOTHERFUCKING BRIONI CUMBERBUND TO GO WITH IT!!!!

 

I ONLY JUST REALIZED ITS MISSING THE BUTTON!!!! PLEASE GOD SOMEONE THRIFT ME A REPLACEMENT BUTTON LIKE THE ONES BELOW! Almost any single tux button would work me thinks.

Edit: for you country music lovers (real country) I don't think hank done it this way

post #60915 of 110257

 

Nice...  good pocket squares are always hard to find.
