Some shop in HK, must have been an online order. The lapels on that YSL are insane!

Super Vintage Brooks Brothers Traditional Fox Hunt Master's Pinque Coat. About a size 36...Needs a little love. 




Wow, make sure to post that in the vintage clothing thread.

Wes, jesus christ man, that coat is like top 10 coolest shit posted. Srs.

Was out in the field today, couple of cool things to pay bills with - pics eventually - air force/marines jacket (I posted earlier), gucci sneakers, Dolce & Gabbana couture leopard tie, PZ SC, Saks cashmere SC, couple of other things (is anyone a Yankees fan, BTW? I grabbed a minty G-III Leather look jacket, if anyone wants to trade).

The coolest shit I found (again, sorry no pics but Im so tired) was a real, vintage 80s Fila leather jacket with the giant logos all over it. Slightly musty smell, but Ill clean it up and likely mack out on that. Those are highly coveted. Psyched about that.

And, in cool news, I found 2 bespoke 1970s Pierre Cardin and Ted Lapidus blazers - the Pierre Cardin is almost a pagoda shoulder action, its made in France and has a label that does not look like anything you see on the licenced crap that you pass. This is the real deal. The buttons are etched and signed, very, very rare and nice. The Ted Lapidus has a bespoke label, numbered like the way YSL couture is done - if anyone has ever seen that - pretty amazing. But the most amazing part about that is that it fits me! Which happens 1/100 times with a thrifted jacket. Staple blue twill SC, nice lapels, 2B/1V, and 26.25" sleeves icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Sounds like you had a good day.

Slightly offbase question: Can the waist on jeans be taken in, like trousers? As I look at them, it looks like no. But I wondered if the denim heads knew any better.

If they're a good fit for you, yes. Otherwise I think that the fly tag is only from the 90's RRL, and the cuts from then are pretty dad jean-ish. They are selvedge but not very desirable/flippable. The ones I've seen from then don't always have the rear patch so it could be more recent. The newer jeans have tons of print on the inside of the pocket bags and will usually say something along the lines of "made in the USA of the finest japan woven selvedge". The guys over on the RRL thread will know a lot more though.

Yes, it could be done but most tailor don't like to do it. I would give them multiple work as an incentive.

Thanks, dude. I'm pretty sure my tailor has a picture of me on her wall with the caption "Retirement Plan." I'd planned to ask her this week anyway, but figured I'd get the inside scoop first.

Ive yet to find a tailor I can completely trust. Half assed work wherever I go. Its unfortunate because they would make a fortune.

Probably not a maker worth mentioning... Got pictures of makers tags/defining characteristics?

Most likely some manufacture we haven't heard of. Prolly not worth mentioning. But I could be wrong. Maybe they are worth mentioning.
