So here's an establishing shot. Other than the coat and vest, all of this was purchased today. While there are no stains or pulls, many of the ties are wrinkled and some are going to require a lot of work... but its totally going to be worth it.
Spoilered because it's like 50 pictures but totally worth checking out so click it! (Click to show)
First up, J. Press Pressidential Donegal tweed.
Any love for J Peterman? Bought because it looked pretty cool - it's 100% cotton and made in Portugal.
So. Many. Ties.
These are not brag worthy, but were in the bag with everything else. Move along to the better stuff.
BB x2 Made in England, and a J Press Made in Italy.
NWT Vineyard Vines x3
Duchamp... NWT. Wasn't something like this posted just a few days ago, and sold for a ridiculous amount? Here's hoping I can copy that feat.
HERMES X4 MORE
Gianni Campagna x2. Is the one on the left a grenadine? (never seen one in person.) Silk, Made in England.
Gianni Campagna x3. I believe these three are all silk, made in Italy.
Gianni Campagna x3. Cashmere, wool, cotton left to right.
So endeth the ties... on to the pants.
Howzabout some Loro Piana?
Here's some more of that Gianni Campagna...
I don't think you can make it out in the photo, but these are Brioni Sport.
So are these.
My first ever Kiton!!!!!!
And this totally, totally sick pair of gray trousers...
...that are 100% cashmere, made in Italy, Incotex. I think the retail on these is close to $2k.
So, yeah. Other than the coat, vest, two BB and J Press ties, all of that came in three big bags from the same location. Not pictured: some Patagonia shorts, North Face shorts, and a few other odds and ends that were part of the lot.
Not bad for the (non-Chicago) midwest. I almost felt like one of the California guys...
