Maybe I could buy it and turn it into a scarf or two, maybe a mini-sweater for my camera on cold nights of landscape shooting. (No haz gunz, so no need for ammo bag).

Pretty good day today

AE Byrons



AE San Marco



Zegna Tie


Unicorns Size 34 Flannel



Incredible Paul Stuart jacket - 100% silk, double vented, MOP buttons, 44L

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



And my favorite - vintage 100% wool sweater made in the UK. Suede elbow and shoulder patches. A bit beat up but fits me perfectly and will be perfect for layering under a coat to keep well warm.

Can someone explain what unicorn means with regard to Zanella pants? Thanks... #n00b4Lyfe
post #61120 of 138728

Ahh yes, the ever elusive flat-front Zanella trousers.

post #61121 of 138728

not pleated, they are very rare since most zanellas have 4-10 pleats

Hrm, when I "almost" found you a tux I found another one, shawl-collar midnight blue in a larger size (I'm guessing like a 44? didn't bother looking at the size or measuring since I was on a mission.)  Was like $38, though.  Wondering if I should go back for it? Someone here in the low-mid '40s sizing want one or should have one at a little higher than thrift prices?  Not really into flipping, but maybe if someone (Brian?) wants me to proxy and split profits... Don't know.  There was a dated Zegna peak-lapel dinner jacket too, but it was paired with random pants.  Sigh.  I think I'm finally reaching that point after the initial noob-craze of picking up everything you think is good and tradeable, to now being extremely wary of picking up a CT shirt in a tradeable size that is pink plaid (happened yesterday).

Holy shit, super-tempted.  I'm confused, though; it's a cardigan, but it's linen.  In case you have a chilly summer eve outside?  Maybe on a boat?  [trying to justify]

Attolini
Tom Ford
Kiton

Are some of my pickups all suits / sport coats. Not sure the Attolini is authentic but I will post pics later.

Changed my thrifting habits - I aint picking up the "fairly" old stuff anymore. If it is older than 10 years or in less than mint condition, nighty night it stays there. I am not against the vintage scene but a 15 year old Brioni suit is not vintage nor is it in any manner modern. Basically unpickable in my book and offensive to look at as well. I left around 4 of these Brioni's behind the other day and it was a heck of a decision given they were only 9bucks a pop.

If it were not for name, I would have felt no pain.

Brioni

Hell no, that gorge is pretty well placed and the lapels have a good width. It is nearly perfect and timeless.

To see what low gorge means, just pick up any Mani / Giorgio Armani Collezioni jackets and then you will change your opinion of what constitutes a low gorge.

Besides, the wider notch lapels and slightly lower than "high gorge" is creeping back in. Recent Tom Ford jacket I picked up pretty much matches the look of that Brioni albeit having wider lapels.

Enjoy the Brioni jacket it is a nice conservative piece and it would look crazy with skinny high gorge lapels.
