Right Dior or wrong Dior?

Has a beautiful 3-2 button stance, side vents, feels fully canvassed.

I've actually found 3 of them in the past year. I still haven't figured out which sell better, the silk screened or the acetate/polyester.

I found one with a an actual photo silkscreened into it... Spread eagle ftw. I oriented it so that the next guy to peruse the ties would find a nice little surprise staring back at him.

So as I am messing with the Armani raincoat I got on Wednesday by removing the small stain, I went to check a size because it seemed to be mine. Yep my size exactly and this...

 

 

Also, to those of you expecting packages, they went out today (except for one).

Pure brag as this stuff was thrifted by another thread member and sent over on consignment. Figured I would share for viewing pleasure biggrin.gif

Anyone know what this maker tag is??
post #63249 of 110323
Long day out in the trenches. Not much found today. Some good tools including a seemingly unused DeWalt power drill. N/A

$2K Gianni Versace Black Rain Jacket Coat Sport Blazer Jeans Couture XL

Put "jeans couture" at the end - and remember a 38/52 is an XL, not a 38.

Spoo: I'm hoping this is real. Any input? Is this anything special or just another $130-ish resale Hermes scarf?

Fake as a strippers tit. Sorry Nat.

He still perks up... but not the same way.
post #63253 of 110323

Hit up that place in Minnesota with all the doctors who don't buy nice clothes.

 

CONFIRMED

Luckily one was done with his midlife crisis so I got his Robert Graham Shirt.

 

(also here a paul smith and hugo boss)

 

 

Last stop of the day finally yielded some stuff.

3 Brooks Brothers Suits.  (346, Makers and 1 other)

 

Any idea how old this BB label is?

 

 

Also found this very nice Camel Hair BB Sport Coat.

 

 

Not an amazing day, but worth the trip. 

Also I got my suit back from the tailors.  (Amazing tailor in that town)

Man, with all the complaining I did going back to school while working full time, in a strange way, helped me graduate. Hahahaha. It gave me something to complain about. lol I sound like an old man...

I've been looking for an SC with a POW pattern in these colors, so I'm stoked about the find. It's soft as hell too. Oh, and it's a Sale day...all told, it was under $5...more than my Spicy Chicken Sandwich at Wendy's.

Then I picked up a couple of ties to fill some color needs:

 

 

That jacket drapes nicely.

RLPLx2, Barney's "cucita a mano", RLBL (a first for me). Left behind an RLPL in white with the most severe cut-away collar I've seen. Twas super sick looking, but had a little 1mm circular olive green stain on the front shoulder that looked like a bird shat on it and they couldn't get it out. Shame.

The purple shirt is linen and was gorgeous in store. Also severely wrinkled, as linen does. As I steamed it earlier today, I found that it perfectly camo'd the lighter pink pit stains on it.ffffuuuu.gif Guessing it's hopeless at this point right?

 

 

The black label is more or less clean, though I then noticed that the fold of the french cuffs (which were conveniently already folded) have a distinct yellow line down the fold

This should be treatable right?

 

The white RLPL just needs the method/treatment/standard wizardry and it'll be kosher for passover.

 

Anyone know the details/maker of Barney's made in Italy / cucita a mano shirts? 

Super thick buttons with claw/bird foot stitching.

 

 

last button hole stitched in red, navy blue stitch detail on the sleeve

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then while discussing with the darkest of all matter via text, a rack rolled out with this peach

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Size marked L

 

 

Italian tag, right?

 

Mis-matched vs. Content... Wtf?

 

 

Wish it was my size, really nice coat. Available to the thread regulars...

 

 

I think this is the first time seeing a Polo that was made in Mexico.

Here's the website I use to help me date labels. I think it's down for now.
