No. Weeks ago. I've posted it before. These are probably just better pictures.

I think he's been having that for at least 1 a month. I'm surprised to see he still has it!

Nice fit man, colours look great. You might want to consider sizing down on or tapering the jawnz though... and is that an undershirt we see?

 

Have you ever considered using a timer or maybe just holding the camera down at your chest? Might take a few more tries to get a good shot, but it'd be nice to see the fits without the clothes being thrown off by your position.

Oh, phew...I was going to say. That would be some crazy synergy at work.

I agree. I either wear v neck undershirt or wife beater. I'm surprised to see him rock those loose fitting jeans. He usually rock slimmer pants.

Thanks. Yeah, I think the pose is really messing with things, because it makes these jeans seem quite baggy when, in fact, they're very much not. At least not in MHO. I will play with the chest pic (though that often blocks other things in the fit, too. Yes, that tee shirt is something my wife gets on my case about. But personally, I'd rather see that, than this:

Re GMMcL's pants: lol, my first thought was "Damn nice to finally see someone on here with jeans that fit." Minority viewpoint, I know. Just so many people's fits seem top heavy to my eye.

WHOA! Is there a material/manufacture tag? Curious who made that.

As promised, here are pics of the YSL and KFS. Both made for Barneys in what I assume are the early/mid 1970s. Feel fused not canvased, but every single other aspect of the tailoring screams quality: Seams are tight, plenty of handwork at pocket edges, silhouette is nicely nipped in. If the KFS doesn't sell, I may looking into having the trouser legs taken in at the bottom and wearing this one, at the very least as a beater/travel suit.

YSL, measures as a 40 or 41R

I sew -- those are a couple of classics. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I used to have a couple of similar machines. I have to stay away from them -- it's too easy to start collecting, especially when they have sweet two-tone art deco-inspired finishes.  Especially one in a two-tone green that matches my Gretsch guitar. It's really dangerous when your obsessions start crossing over each other.

YSL lapels too slim

LOL. I can't help but see them and think of the flying nun.

Srsly, I don't know why these things have me so enchanted. Old licensed YSL and KFS should be nothing special. Maybe it's the fact that these are in pristine condition over 40 years later, and maybe it's just the novelty of seeing such a mashup of current and modern (dual vent/flat front/nipped waist with HUUGE lapels and bell bottoms). Or maybe it's just that suit quality has gone so far down that middle-of-the-road from 40 years ago seems high quality. Whatever, these have me thoroughly enthralled.

About 100 pairs of cuff links, and lots of extra pins and tie bars. I found 4 or 5 novelty pins that will easily pay for the entire lot.

Fake??



It has the gold cuff buttons and the rest are MOP

So jealous, I never find cufflinks or tie bars. Nice haul.
