Please don't post those.

 

Yeah, I agree with the coupling of these two statements. I had some stuff that I found that was brag-worthy but I didn't feel like wasting my time posting if it was going to get lost amongst some wonderful internet bickering.

So that concludes todays journey.

 

But alas,

 

Does anybody now anything about this lapel construction, its from an unlabeled suit, none anywhere. I felt it was of great quality overall, however i didn't get because it was 30...I feel like goodwill knows something that I dont, is this construction distinct for a certain maker?

 

had nice MOP buttons on working cuffs 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you sure that's a grenadine?

For those that don't know, this tailoring house has been family owned since 1798, and is almost solely an ecclesiastical tailor. They've made many Popes' clothing. Pretty sure this is a thread first. I'm guessing it's made somewhere between 1920-1960.




 

 

If any of that stuff is my size...get at me.

(Naw, seriously, JKidd, just kidding! Nice stuff in there!)

The two Canali suits I picked up are at the dry cleaners. My project today was putting my flannel suits in the zip up suit bags and packing up my heavier shirts. All my sweaters are upstairs as well.

I should post my two full drawers of tennis clothes LOL

I would surely like to know...

Nope, not a grenadine. That said, grenadines are almost over anyway; the bubble is about to burst. Macclesfields are the new hotness.

And unlined, 7 fold to boot.

That's a nice tie, Torz. Not grenadine, but awfully nice.

Wow, we've had some great thrifts lately.  Here's my haul from the weekend:

 

 

Ties (Click to show)

 

 

TM Lewin x 2 PRL x 2 (Left grenadine right Italy) - NA

 

 

 

 

Pents (Click to show)

 

Zanella 120s Wool 

 

 

Italian PRL x 3 -  NA

 

 

 

Not really brag worthy, but I found what's bound to be my favorite spring pants

 

 

 

Shirts (Click to show)

 

Skeet Skeet

 

 

Gitman Bros Tuxedo Shirt with MOP Buttons

 

 

Suitsupply w/ French Cuffs?  Actually, surprising quality for how much SF doesn't like Suitsupply and fits well.

 

 

Zegna - Ugly IMHO but if it doesn't sell, keeping MOP buttons

 

 

LOUD PRL Shirt.  Has a green colored label?  Someone know something I don't? Must be boys since it fits more like a M or S

 

 

SCORPIONS! Custom Fit M - NA

 

 

Performance Knit BB Polo

 

 

MINTY Brioni Polo.  Still has plastic ring from tags

 

 

Canali T-shirt XL

 

 

Brion T XL

 

 

 

Other (Click to show)

 

Minty fresh PRL Peacoat - NA

REI Vest S for the Fiancee 

 

 

EDIT: I want to give a huge shoutout to the captain for the awesome Oxxford suit he sold me.  Fits well already but needs a few finishing touches, so it is headed to the tailors.  Thanks again Wes!cheers.gif

30% discount is nationwide for Savers, just spend $75 and you get a 30% off coupon for your next purchase.

 

With that said, the original prices are still way better than here!

I was mulling it over, waited for 25% off day and went back to get it, and it was gone. I forget where it was made but it seemed pretty decent, might like to have kopped it for myself but I haven't lost too much sleep over it.

 

Just a few ties for now, because I haven't gotten around to taking pics of some modest pant and shoe finds.

My first Hermes. (?)

 

 

Is this the Hermes I am looking for? (Click to show)

 

 

 

Legit? Specifically, other examples of Hermes I've seen have:

1. Amish logo on the sewn-on tag instead of the H

2. © symbol in the printed logo on the tail

3. "100 SOIE" in the "Made in France" box on the tail

 

If this is fakety fake fake then I'm out $1.50, but it looked close enough to kop when I was in the GW. Is this simply of an older vintage? It has a couple of spots, possibly coffee, and a little dingy/oily haze on the front. I'd like one of y'all experts to authenticate so I can determine if it's worth sending to Tiecrafters and keeping.

post #67829 of 102841

^^ Hermes is real.

post #67830 of 102841

Yep, Hermes is real but old.  I believe the keeper dates it to 1970s or earlier.
