Woah... I found this exact Lorenzini in large a couple weeks back. It has since been turned into a lovely linen pocket square, and I'm planning to sew the pocket onto a cheap blue oxford for some poor man's Junya steeze.

That is an incredibly cool find. Baldessarini is so underappreciated, and that pattern is wicked. Nice fit too.

Can't say I agree with Andro on this one. Unfortunately that's a size too small for you, los_face.

Hey guys I recently found a cool vintage jacket with gold buttons. I am not sure if they are real gold or not but they have the engraving of "HJ" on the back of each button. i am really not sure what that means, but I remember that there are a couple members that have found gold buttons in the past and I was wondering if anyone has some knowledge on the matter. Just let me know, thanks in advance!

IMPORTANT PSA

 

Looks like there is a phony email going around. This just popped up in my email box.

 

 

 

 

 

Notice the extra L in Paypal. Once inside the email there are links to click on to verify my information. What clued me in was, it said this was my second notice. I suppose this was an effort to make me act quickly without thinking. Fortunately I monitor my inbox often and knew there was not a previous email.

 

If you ever receive any emails, from eBay or Paypal, that you think are suspicious, forward them to spoof@ebay.com or spoof@paypal.com for verification.

Yeah, others have said it, but those are huge shoulders for that P2P (also quite long). I'm a 50, occasionally a 48, and 20 is about the smallest shoulder I can handle (usually more like 21, and take 33 length jackets (at the longest).

I fluctuate between a 42-44R, I often have to go up to a 46 to get a good shoulder width at 20-21". Of course then the sleeves are usually way too long for me (24")

I'll remeasure, of course, before going to ebay with it (or one of you), but it is bespoke, so ....

Whoa, go away for a bit and stuff starts getting real around here. LA thrifts have been pretty dry for me, probably because of some of you.

 

Great fits and hauls posted (2 Hunstman, Lookngr8!), and some excellent non-standard posts, especially by Andro,DanM and BNT on SF denim heavens.

(I think) I have the exact same jacket and really like it. Unfortunately, it may be a little long on me (lined in the arms, twilly, Macau made). It's tagged 44L, but fits like a 42L. If anyone wants it, get at me.

Wearing some AE shelton's which I picked up on the bay today:



These are the older corrected grain sheltons. I understand that they are better than your average corrected grain shoes. Time will tell how they hold up.

Big thanks to GMMcl on a great trade. Finally have a brown AND black pair of shoes that fit my narrow foot correctly.

Second BBBF. I get that Thom Browne is eccentric, but the sleeves on this hit at that goofy elbow length/Hawaiian shirt land between short and long sleeve...N/A

Very lightweight, tagged Large. Available
