...the Jobs Jacket would force you to carry the built-in Stocks and Passbook documents that reappear in the pockets when you throw them away, and track everywhere you go and sell your location to the highest bidder....all the while telling you how much better than the Gates jacket it is. And it would reek of patchouli

Trust me, you want to see this.






The most beautiful bespoke sportcoat I've ever found! No fabric tag, but it's definitely an extremely fine wool- at least a 120. I did my best to capture all of the details, but I didn't even close to do them justice. No shortcuts were taken. Handwork everywhere. Every buttonhole is handmade, pick stitching all over the place... But it gets SO MUCH BETTER. READ ON!





Oh yeah, and it was owned by this guy...




Awesome find! The handwork sure is outstanding, isn't it? The jacket though, is actually made by Adrian Jules of Rochester NY. Their tailored garments are simply amazing and the handwork is definitely at Oxxford level. A local high-end men's clothier used Adrian Jules for their MTM service so I do find them quite often. Sadly, Adrian Jules just does not have the name recognition such as Oxxford so I've noticed a lot of them float under the radar on eBay unless you play the system a bit and toss in Oxxford as a key word (chalk me down for guilty on this one).

post #68864 of 112857

A few things I've picked up over the last week or so.

 

Versace Collection poly/wool pants with leather snaps above the pockets for eBay, unless someone here really wants them (in the 36/33 territory). No Spoo Signal required.

AppleMark

 

Acne Jeans brown cords, 34/30, available before they go to the bay tonight with that ghastly, unironed pic. 

AppleMark

 

And lastly, an Oliver Spencer shirt with ridiculous double chest pocket. Because I'm keeping, here's a fit pic.

AppleMark
