I think that is a women's jacket. the cut looks very feminine to me, buttons not withstanding.

^^^ LoL.  I missed the discussion that someone brought up about the dybbuk box, but I have a "haunted jacket" story.  Let me preface it by saying that I am neither a superstitious person, nor am I prone to stepping through the looking glass.

 

The Haunted Jacket... (Click to show)

 

A couple of years ago I went to a thrift store that was always somewhat out of my way, so I never really had it on a "route" per se.  Either way, I hit the racks as usual and made my way to the jackets and suits.  I was going through them when I reached out and grabbed the shoulder of a dark brown herringbone jacket.  The material was quite dark and I could tell from the moment I touched it that it was old - not vintage old, but antique old.  It felt like dust and mothballs and storage.  I pulled it to give it a closer look.  Natural shoulders, somewhat old-fashioned lapels, single-breasted three-button closure, single-button cuffs, shallow single vent, single interior breast pocket, handwritten tags.  Old and English-made.  Probably 1930s, if not earlier.  I bought it.

 

I took it home and hung it on the corner of my fireplace mantel.  I planned on leaving it there until I decided what to do with it.  Sometime afterwards, I started getting the distinct impression that "it wasn't mine."  I deal with vintage clothes all the time both in my personal wardrobe and my Etsy shop and have never encountered anything like it before or since.  This feeling persisted until one evening, I couldn't get the image of it being worn (by someone other than me) out of my head.  I was working at my desk which was in the same room as where the jacket was hanging when I finally called bullshit on it.  I got up and put the jacket on.  My wife was out of town for her work and I ended up falling asleep wearing it.  I woke up the next morning again with the strong feeling that the jacket wasn't mine and that it was of particular personal value to somebody else.  I redonated the damn thing.

Crappy quality, pretty ugly, way too expensive. The Tale of the Red in eBay completed listings reflects what that stuff is really worth.
Deadboy: I will totally kop to being a lazy ass when it comes to SWD. There is just literally a whole different universe of style and so, so, so many micro brands. I have a hard time keeping up with MC -- I mean, I auto pass on ALL Dior, Givenchy, Lanvin and the like because I'm too lazy to remember whether it's pour homme, or whatever that's the good stuff. So, yes, I rely entirely on this thread. Most often I google it from my phone in the store, other times I just rely on my sense of quality (because I never get good google results when I'm in the store). This tie is really nice, made in Italy of very nice fabric, and it seems odd that an SWD maker would make a bow tie if they thought it wouldn't appeal to their target market. I guess I'll return it. Or maybe make it literally the second bowtie in my collection.

Dont give me shit about the last two, it was a package deal.
I rarely get hot and bothered about Behar ties, but that one's pretty nice.

I can't believe I forgot to mention this during the last haunted stuff derail. You all should read Christopher Moore's "A Dirty Job" (and all his books, which are hilarious). It's tangentially about vintage clothes, and a guy who is tasked with collecting "soul objects" -- the owner's most prized possession in life and into which his soul gets put when he dies -- on to the next intended owner. It's really funny and, strangely, what kind of got me back into clothing a couple of years back.
