post #67246 of 121154

First post...long time lurker. Some of the things you guys find amaze me...I'm a noob, but I'm starting to learn right from wrong.

 

Not sure if this is the Brioni that I'm looking for, or if they are even authentic...but I hope so. Also, the Barbour was already sold to the bay.

 

The 3 Brioni pieces are available, if anyone is interested in them.

The sweater and shirt are tagged Large..I'm a 15.5, and they are too big. I'd estimate them around a 17.

The jacket is also too big..once again, I'd estimate it to fit a size 17. The buttons don't seem to work very well baldy[1].gif

700

To the right of the penny, there is some damage..the hole is about half the size of a dime, when wearing baldy[1].gif

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The thread is coming out in one of the buttons

 

 

 

It really isn't stained..just dust, really. The lighting amplifies it.

MartiniGirl - cool of you to proxy those shirts.

You should post your measurements.


















So, you know, we can all keep an eye out for stuff for you to return the favor.

inlove.gif That's a beauty.  I want one like this.  Except for the two pouches, this is very similar to the one I had that was stolen and am trying to replace.

Yeah, that thing is awesome.  I think stuff at the bottom of the page is more of a pain to quote once things move on to the next...  but I was impressed!

Holy shit!  Nicely done, my man.  Those textured Campagna ties are luscious!  So want them all.

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 Breuer

 

 

 

Brioni x3

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

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?

 

 

 

 

Deja vu...

 

 

 

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...

I don't think its a seven fold (but I don't think I've ever seen one in person) but it is super thick.

 

The crazy thing - All of that loot came in at well under $100.  Between this and the two pairs of John Lobbs last month, I think I'm setting some unrealistic expectations for myself.

 

Huh.  I just realized I forgot to post pics of the Luciano Barbera cords I picked up with that J Press Donegal.  Oh well.

 

$100, eh? You sir, are master of thrifting currently! Haha! Also, take a picture of that Campagna polka dot tie opened, please! We shall decide if it's a real 7 fold!

Can anyone tell me if these are grenadine ties?  I found these while thrifting today but have never had a grenadine tie, to be hones I hadn't heard of grenadine ties before reading this thread.

, no, but really, I have one of the strongest flashlights known to man) Got all 5 shirts. All of them a currently spoken for though! Sorry Eazy! But I'll watch for more stuff in your size! Turns out, upon further inspection.... A few of the Zegna's have MoP buttons...?! Am I right to think that? Or are they just shiny buttons? The blue plaid at the bottom has 2 really thick buttons for the collar. 2 of them also still have the cardboard neck liner!












wow
i'd wear any of those shirts right now

So I went thrifting today... things were good, but turned sour really fast! I found orphaned pants... searched high and low for the jackets, with no luck. Found a Borrelli blue and white gingham shirt, size 15.5, only to find a hole towards the gusset! Siggghhhhhhh.... OH! And some guy elbowed me in the boob because "he didn't see me". Shit head. I blinded him with my flashlight as payback happy.gif


Pictures of said Borrelli..... Not for the squimish! (Click to show)











And I found 4 Zegna shirts. All size Medium. Did not buy. But if anyone here is interested in these shirts, do let me know and I'll try to get them tomorrow!








Those are some very nice Zegna's... I see almost exclusively rayon blends where a medium = 52" chest
