That is just poor....looks like a monkey tied that knot and took those out of focus pics.

If you're going to steal the man's photo listing layout at least do it some justice.

Pictures make a big difference. I had a some sitting for months and with a change up of pictures a few sold within a week.

So good. And you don't need to take off the belt loops, just don't wear belt and braces at the same time.

This is from what I've seen elsewhere on the interwebs a 1950s A&F shooting jacket. Badass, super heavy wool.

 

It's more like late 60s/early 70s, but that thing is amazing.

This is what I've discovered.

1 stop at Selfedge. http://www.selfedge.com/

My god, that place was super clean and had racks of Japanese denim like Sugar Cane, 3sixteen+, and The Flat Head, so on. Super nice denim! They had 3 pairs of beautifully faded jeans framed on that walls that were donated by various people. One of them was the VP of The Flat Head.

2nd stop. Unionmade. http://www.unionmadegoods.com/

This store was super huge compared to Selfedge. They had great heritage products from hair care to Aldens.

Staff are super helpful. Tons of selection. Super expensive. The cheapest item I've found was a LVC raw denim shirt that was $215. RRL denim was actually fairly affordable at $240. RRL work shirts, made in Singapore $330!? Woa! I've come to realized how much I've been spoiled by this thread and thrifting. I've gotten RRL shirt in great condition for $5 a pop. Anyhow, they had slightly used Aldens shells for $640. I think those were returns.

Anyhow, I went there mainly to try on a few pairs of Tellasons. I was so impressed by the quality of the denim that I prefer their Cone Mill, SF made products over Japanese denim. If any of you gents are interested in Tellason, please check them out and get hooked like I am! Super quality denim at the price point.

3rd stop, Sui Generis http://www.suigenerisconsignment.com/
They are a super duper consignment shop who knows their shit! So, no RLPL for $25. Super curated store that looks like a museum. All of their products are well taken care of and are in great condition! I was so blown away by the experience, I forgot to take pics. lol

Anyhow, too rich for my blood, so I left shortly.

4th stop, MAAS & Stacks http://www.maasandstacks.com/

Love their minimalist but super stylish shop. It's a small shop that's been around for only 2 years. They specialize importing Japanese SW&D brands. They also carry SF approved brands such as BoO (I really dig their stuff), wings +horns, Norse Projects, and others. Being there has really gave me a strong first hand experience of what quality street wear is. I felt in love with a NP shirt with crazy prints, the exact opposite of the versatile and subtle approach of what BoO's designer, Scott Sternberg takes. Almost pulled the trigger on it at $175...

5th and final stop, Taylor Stitch http://taylorstitch.com/

I wasn't too impressed with their denim, shirts, and accessories but was surprised to see Southwick does their MTM program and they also have MTM shoes, boots, and shirts. Makes sense giving their name. lol Finally found a pair of 16.5 Tellason in Ladbroke Grove fit. That is the fit I've been looking for in that particular weight since I've outgrown my NnF Skinny Guy Elephant 2's...=( Anyhow, they don't carry Tellason's newer lines...=(

Anyone familiar with Duck Cotton pants or Duck Canvas pants? TS carry those and wow, those pants took a page from denim and make their fabric with weft and warp resulting in super durable, thick, but comfortable pants! No pics but think chino like pants at around 14 oz!

Before leaving the shop I ran into these adorable little guys.

Japanese handkerchiefs! Coped this guy figured I can use them for PS. lol

Anyhow, I was being good and didn't thrift. We are leaving for our vacation soon and didn't want to spend more money and clutter up the house further. lol Also, is was in TS that I was hit by the notion that I shall stop rolling or over cuffing my jeans and just do a slight cuff and stack the rest which translates to no hemming.

This experience really has opened my eyes to the awesome world of fashion and slapped me across the head with the reality that there's another world out there besides the thrift scene. If anyone of you gents are near The City or are planning or thinking of coming here, please stop by The Missions and Castro to check out these awesome shops! You will be glad you did!

Awesome! Man, you California members are so spoiled with all those cool shops. We have a few SW&D-ish boutiques here, but nothing that really carries high-end tailored stuff anymore.

I RARELY find suits or sports coat is my own size, but last night I got lucky. Found two bespoke jackets made in the 80s by a tailor in New York. Fully canvassed, handsewn, Surgeon's cuffs, double vents. And they fit me nearly perfectly. Unfortunately, they look to have been packed up for like 20 years, and one ended up having a bunch of holes. It was a SWEET purple/blue/black tweedy silk. The one I ended up keeping is gonna go down the street to Rave Fabricare for cleaning and pressing.

Cole Haan...  Made in England.






Normally I'm a 12W but with some heel pads, these are going to do just fine.

Sweet Jesus!!! drool.gifworship.gif I've been combing ebay for just the right pair in snuff suede for the last couple months, nothing yet though.

Nope, makers. I've also got a vintage golden fleece navy pinstripe from the same guy, also from Tubs, that I dropped off when I picked this beaut up.

^^^^^^Dudes, that Norfolk jacket and suit are awesome! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Regarding the belvedere shoes- I found a pair a while back. They seem reasonably well made- the styling is not my taste but the leather is nice enough.

One from Hans' neck of the woods (Fitz-Pichler Wool, made in Tyrol, Austria), which I passed on because it's a women's piece from the 80s. But it's still cool...
