Bought my first ties. No tags on the navy one, is there an easy way to determine what material it is?

I haven't done it in awhile, so a quick fit pic. I may have made some alternate choices this morning, but I was running late, so I just went with what I had.

Shoulders look a bit wide to me.

wow the break on those trousers is perfect and I enjoy the slightly extended shoulders I actually prefer that as well it makes me look slightly less twiglike

Those colors/that pattern. drool.gif


One of the 250 pairs made for Barney's Co-Op's 25th anniversary. Holy rare denim find Batman! Do want!! Prepared to fight[1].gif for them!
MartiniGirl made a post about this a couple days ago. Not sure what the numbers mean but that is a Zegna Quindici tie. Super expensive and very desirable. Be prepared to bring on some $$ on the bay.

It's a shame to see that she may have left us. She really knew her stuff and I would have never known about these ties had she not mentioned them.

 

Thanks for the information.  I am so tempted to have it taken in and rock it myself.  I might even skip the re-weaving and just wear the jacket inside-out since that silk Pucci pattern is so proper smile.gif

Indeed. Your eye is keener than mine. I don't think it's severe, but on reflection I do see the effect you're referencing and revise my previous comments that it is, indeed, a tad snugger than is ideal.

Los_Face: Sorry if this ended up being more than you bargained for. Looking back, your post seems to have been pics only, without requesting feedback. And I think the Hans Der Hund Rule of 2013 states that feedback (other than complements) shall be provided where specifically requested (e.g., "What do you guys think of the fit?"), to avoid deterring the fun/bragging spirit in which the thrift fit was originally intended.

And maybe this reopens the question whether there should be a separate thrift fit thread to comment on fits (a la the new Thrift Fit Formalwear thread). Then again, there are more than enough threads on SF proper that focus on honing fit and soliciting feedback, so not sure what the "thrift" aspect would add.

 Every time someone posts about golfing, it makes me want to grab my clubs and play a round or three (they have free replays as long as there's room) on the 9-hole course that my back window overlooks... One of these days: I actually haven't played a round of golf in five years.

north of $200, nearing $300 when I stopped watching. I wanted it badly but didn't have the funds at the time but I never see them.

As I referenced but it may have been overlooked the Quindici tie is one of Zegna's most exclusive. Quindici, which means 15, is for the 15 different dye colors used in the tie. The color boxes on the blade correspond to each individual color. Very very cool find, I sold a few in my time at Nordstrom.

Digging the white pants, Hans! I do agree with Pnut on the shoulders, but I doubt anyone in the real world (including me) would ever notice.

Only after putting everything did I realize that it was almost all Polo of some sort (thanks, Mr. Lipschitz!).

Daaaaaamn. I guess I'll try to take good care of it, considering it's also a rainy day source of funds. That is unless the RL vintage team suddenly starts lurking this thread devil.gif.

I've never seen it either, I tried looking for them a few times but I've never had any luck.

SC is PRL/Corneliani, tie is Zegna, belt is Trafalgar, socks are Pantherella, trou are HF (soon to be replaced by better cut current label Zegna I found yesterday and/or the LPs Dex sold me icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif ), shoes are Florsheim, shirt and sq are unremarkable and/or unknown.
SC, square and belt from Spoo. Shoes from Easy. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
Rest is me.

Today's fit would not be approved, and in any event, I didn't have time for shots.

If you want to organize an Atlanta thrift thread putt-putt extravaganza, I'm in.
