My girlfriend is visisting a friend this weekend. So I opened a bottle of red wine and started taking pictures of my jackets and suits which I found the last couple of months. They may be avaliable for trade if I get a good offer. Im on the lookout for a grey staple suit. Pm me if you are interested in anything.

Canali (Orphan?), it will most defiently work as a sc anyway. Its mid/ligh grey Flanell.
Im sure this is an orphan and im not really sure why i even bought it but i guess it wil work as an sc aswell. Mid/dark grey
This one im in love with, its 100 % Cashmere from Zegna, fully canvassed and SUPER soft.
This isnt a great quality suit, its glued but i love the cut and colour. Its also a perfect fit off the rack without any alterations. Do you guys have any idea who the maker is? Guabello is just the cloth, right?
orphan once again but i just couldnt leave a Ravazollo, im still hoping i will find the pants :)
Perfect fit of the rack, replaced the buttons with horn buttons. Rose and Born is a swedish brand which are semi-canvassed. Loving this one as well :)
Im gonna change the plastic buttons to gold ones
I have never heard of Zegna Heritage before and couldnt find super much info about when i tried to google it. How is the line quality wise?
Zegna SC. need to have the waist supressed.
Z-Zegna suit, brown/greyish, pretty hard to describe the colour but i think its a pretty nice colour.
Anyway: to those who denigrated the cravat tie with tux idea, sure, the purists might hate it. But then again, my feeling for them is generally mutual. Also, the notion that a cravat and tux is nontraditional, I say google pics from the 1940s involving bogie and from the 50s involving Sinatra. Plenty of straight black ties with tuxes.
With the otter pic: why? Rlpl for embroidery? Is that a hipster thing?
And as for foo, why did I detect a note of terror in hans's description of him? Yes, he's a major contributor, and has a very strongly held view based on lots of experience. But he's also highly caustic, and not a little intolerant of difference. I'm sure that will get me banned, but so what; live free or die.
Next, those prl finds (suited and gmh) are awesome! Super jelly and strongly fighting pm-ing suited asking for sizes and measurements.
Finally, as for who recommended the method for ties, I didn't recommend It. I tried it. To drastic results. I strongly recommend against.
Oh, and the London fog guy: welcome. Keep lurking and shopping. When you find a mackintosh, then you shall have achieved bragdom.
1 store for me today. Nada.
Beautiful tie! A lot of the good vintage stuff around me is from that store, which was located in the DuPont building (notice that much of the wealthy-people stuff in Delaware is associated with that name). It's interesting to see something from around here made it all the way out there! Cool find, and lovely tie.
Not always, and definitely not only. I take a narrow width myself, though I think that higher-quality makers generally tend to use letter widths such as A,B,C rather than medium (M) or narrow (N).
EDIT: To be clear, the N is indeed sometimes printed on men's shoes, just not frequently, and especially not recently since makers have reduced or stopped production of narrow shoes.

Normally don't go anywhere near the socks, but the glancing paid off here. Grabbed the socks for a quarter as they were like new and super soft.
