Picked up a mess of ties, on Sunday, although nothing seriously brag worthy.  Handful of Polo handmade ties:

 

 

Bunch of BB vintage ties, last one on the right is a silk/Sea Island cotton blend.

 

 

Couple of Talbott ancient madders.

 

 

And then there was this one.  Ebay search turned up nothing, but the pattern was neat and I hadn't seen anything totally in German before.  By Laco for Herbert Stock.  Anyone familiar with them?  Hansderhund?

Oh wow! How does that make you feel?! At first glance, I didn't realize those were golf clubs.... I thought it was Gianni Campagna's scissors from his label!

I have a few finds that I have some questions on. I picked up two suits that I thought, initially, fit me.  Unfortunately, one is a 40L that would cost about $155 to tailor to me.  The coat on the other suit fit, but the pants needed some letting out.  Unfortunately, when I was at my tailor, we found a patched hole that would be exposed.  I'm still considering getting suit #1 done, but wanted to get some advice from the forum here.  Also picked up a supposed "Christian Dior" shirt, but I'm not sure it's real.  Hoping I can get some tag expertise if possible. Thanks in advance for the help.

Suit #1, 40L and too long for me unless I want to spend $155. Anyone ever hear of Britches of Georgetown?  Seems like an old local NoVA department store, perhaps?

 

 

Legit Loro Piana tag?

 

 

 

 

Suit #2

 

40R I believe (coat fit me well and I'm about a 40R), but the pants were too tight for my 33-34 waist.  Plenty of room to let them out, until I noticed the patch job. Anyone ever heard of the brand?

 

 

 

 

Christian Dior shirt, real or no?

 

 

 

 

 

Pink, n/a.

 

 

Anyone here of this brand of shirt?

Everything everyone else said plus I'm not sure a coat of that length is a flattering look for you. Makes you look kinda tiny.

Even Charvet are guilty as charged for producing shirts that fit like a tent.

As for my build, those that have met me can attest I am certainly not on the skinny or thin side. I am a big tall lump of a man but cannot stand wearing stuff that balloons out to the point I feel like a 1700's aristocrat.

 

I always assumed it was because those brands are made for the big fat Italian dudes who can afford them.

Always thought these were made in China. But they are made in Macau. I guess that's kind of better cuz APC makes their stuff in Macau. Was expecting lower quality but to my surprise, the fit is right on and feels durable at 14.5 oz. Now, I have 8 pairs of selvedge with 0 pairs being broken in. shog[1].gif

For what it's worth, I've heard nothing but good things about Unbranded, especially at the price point. A local store is selling them for $50 right now and I'm seriously considering getting a pair, even though I already have a denim backlog.

 

You could probably stand to get a below the knee taper on those, though. There's something weird going on on the right leg in that pic.

Britches made some seriously nice stuff, but it's under-appreciated and nigh impossible to flip if that's your goal. I snap up whatever I find that fits me, though. They went out of business a long time ago--mid 90s, if I'm not mistaken, but don't hold me to it.

Eazy has first dibs on this, coolest jacket I've found in awhile, and it is in absolute mint condition, as if never worn.

And I don't often ask this, but passed on a Burberry navy blazer. It was $5 but ventless. Good call?
