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?
You got it! It'll be our little secret! Sounds like a a tough size to find though. I'll be on the lookout!
One of the jackets in my Etsy shop got featured on Ivy Style today!
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!
Well, I would wear this.... but...
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?
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?
Anyone here of this brand of shirt?
So much in that last post...
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.
I always assumed it was because those brands are made for the big fat Italian dudes who can afford them.
Was in town for a pair of grey/black selvedge to mis-match my Big E Levi's type III. Finally gave in and bought a pair of Unbranded tapered for $50.
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.
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.
Looks exactly the same??
IMO those are some of the uggliest Polo ties I've seen, BUT I'm sure someone will want them..
My lips are like fort knox
Christian Dior shirt, real or no?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Real or not, start a fire and toss it in.
