Quick FYI for any 42L...

I happened across an eBay listing for a 42L NWT Hickey Freeman black blazer. Wool/cahsmere blend.I am pretty sure it is the most recent label. BIN of $40, but I shot the guy a lower offer, and he responded with $35.
Is it an orphan? Probably. Do people around here scoff at black blazers? Some.
Is it cheap? Damn right.
The size is listed as a medium, but the seller sent me a picture of the label.
Somebody ought to grab it...

No affiliation with the seller. I found it looking for a Hickey spring jacket.

I just want to say, on the record, that the coloring of the picture makes it look a lot more like blood stains then it does in real life.  Nontheless, sounds like it may be making the return trip to GW!

This is what I found:

Two perfectly fitting Turnbull & Asser white, textured, dress shirts with single cuffs (3 buttons).

My first Robert Graham shirt - wow, it is hideous.





Various Neiman Marcus items, like these two tie/cummerbunds in black and red - and a leather pouch of Neiman Marcus collar stays






An Italian almost t-shirt from Zegna

And my favorite - a new with tags Brioni pullover shirt:

Sounds like you may have found your personal honey-hole! Congrats!

I don't know if any of you guys did, but I got in on that Vente Privee LVC sale last month, and the jeans finally came in. I wasn't too impressed with the ones I got to be honest (1947 rinse & 1954Z archive), but hey they seem to be flippable so everything is alright smile.gif. I was bummed because I've been needing a new pair of jeans, so what did I find on my way home from work?


Minty Surface to Air MIJ



Barely used PRPS Barracuda P45P28X



I don't think I'd be able to tell if these were used or not, RRL low straight patchwork selvedge



Some pretty wild RRL selvedge indigo pincheck work pants


Gant Rugger country twill brushed flannel


All my size biggrin.gif

J Crew blazer for the wife

Something I was looking for, navy textured silk tie, BB makers.

This awesome deadstock, NWT Redhead hunting jacket. This one has all the bells and whistles. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Made right here in Chicago, this puts all those shitty 90's Redhead flannels I've come across to shame.

And finally, an epic, 3 way, cross country, orphan, reverse orphan reunion, courtesy of Pnut and the Capt'! Sadly, I think the jacket is too long, but I'm going to talk to my tailor and see what she as to say about it.

STORY TIME

I just started tutoring in an area about an hour away from my house and it's a pretty nice area. Decided I'd try stopping by one of their thrift stores as I had an extra 20 minutes to kill. Wasn't finding too much, went back to the suit section and immediately pulled this jacket out because the pattern looked so nice. Turns out it's a J. Press 3/2. First time I've ever found J. Press. Probably 42-44, haven't measured yet. Small moth hole on the back. Some quick pics.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Anyway, as I pick it up I notice something heavy in the pocket. I pick it out and it's a little bag that's quite literally full of gold. About 5 pairs of cufflinks, a bracelet, and a wedding band with an inscription on it. So me being an honest person, I found someone who worked there and showed her. She was extremely grateful for my honesty. We ended up talking for about 10 minutes about it. She told me that someone may end up getting fired for not finding it which made me pretty sad. She said that they most likely wouldn't be able to figure out who donated it and she said I could have a pair of cufflinks in the bag if I wanted to. Without thinking I grabbed two with gold coins on them. They look like this.




The coins are $5 Liberty coins from 1882 which according to http://www.coinstudy.com/liberty-ten-dollar-gold-coin-values.html are worth a minimum of $391 each. Everything else is made of gold as well and I have no idea what an actual value of them would be and I'm not sure if I can get the coins out (or if I would even want to). So one of the best finds from last year was a set of Tiffany's cufflinks that were sold for something like $800 and were paid $5 for. I technically paid $6 for these. We'll see. Either way, being honest is always worth it.

Awesome! Props to you for letting them know. Those coins are neat.

 As it turns out, the tag WAS in the pocket... The front pocket. WTF? Seems odd to me, but whatever.

 

 It's a men's Classic Fleece Jacket, size large (it's a bit big on me, and I tend to be borderline medium/large). And it's still available if anyone here wants it.).
