Drakes used that label before they moved into this one :



..and PS - back to my 50+ unit haul, I went back to the scene of the crime yesterday and raided it even further. 10 macclesfield pocket squares, 60s BB made in england cummerbund, ll bean norwegian sweater, 10 more wacko tweeds for fall, isaia for Paul Stuart suit, two of the most caddyshacklicious FU bananas amazaballs pants that you have ever seen in your life, from the 60s or 70s. Some more bespoke stuff from the 70s and 80s, 8 Turnbull & Asser ties, a rare (to me) Chipp "Chippmunk" emblematic tie with crocodile heads, 3 made in france 100% cashmere scarves, double faced silk/wool macclesfield scarf, bunch of BB suits, etc etc etc. theres that.

As for the tie: Do you mean the "handmade in england" tag? I think that is on the Thomas Pink tie, though. Or is it something about the Channel tag that says "Drakes" to you?

As for the haul, Holy hell! Congrats. PM incoming....

Yep, the Drakes. Chanel is by Chanel.

WOW!  Every time I make back to the thread, there's like 1000+ posted, lol.  smile.gif

 

I went out yesterday and visited two stores and came up with:

 

2 FRAY for Neiman Marcus white dress shirts.

 

1 Holland & Sherry BESPOKE dress shirt (Savile Row kind, not made in USA kind).

 

1 pair of BB critter shorts - blue embroidered lobsters on red.

 

1 vintage BB mustard yellow lambswool sweater.

 

1 KILLER Caruso brown wool blazer (I'm going to switch the buttons to white MOP).

 

2 pairs of Zanella (Duncan & Bennet) in navy blue & chocolate brown respectively.

 

1 pair of MADE IN SCOTLAND Hunter mid-calf galoshes in green.  < The MADE IN SCOTLAND ones are pretty hard to find...

 

... AND a bunch of vintage stuff for my Etsy shop.

 

PS - I have house guests ATM, so no pic's unfortunately.  However, I'll put some up when I do manage to get them done, lol.

Beautiful. Looking to add a 1911. Let me know how it does. I have heard Kimbers can be picky and they have that weird "key" thing. Great craftsmanship and gorgeous. I want one so badly.

 

People think 1911's are picky because they have a break in period of about 500 or so rounds. Run those through it, don't clean it, and after that they'll eat just about anything. I wouldn't run Russian reloads through it but I haven't had any bad feeds after the breakin.

Saw this gold a while back...

What is the *standard* shoulder measurement for a 40 chest? I have been lifting weights and am about a 19 shoulder as opposed to an 18 now and I am wondering if that bumps me up closer to a 42L to get a proper shoulder width
Also my family crisis is better and I should be able to ship and get back out in the field tomorrow

I stopped into Value Village today and used my last 30% off coupon.

This one is available at cost + shipping for the smaller guys (36ish) who are regulars here. Cesar? Brianpore? Anyone else I've forgotten? PM for measurements.
Midnight blue velvet sports blazer. It's vintage by a label called Shipley. Beautiful buttons and the velvet is in remarkable condition considering it's age.






EZ black pinstripe suit.




Boss summer sports coat.




Vintage Polo University Club tradly blazer.




Western / rockabilly shirt with sweet design.

My 12 year old is getting addicted, after the Chanel and Thomas Pink ties yesterday he wanted to go again. So we drove down to a different store, not the greatest selection but found two nice ties in great condition:

Home for the weekend, so all I have are cell phone pics. I never thought Ohio of all places would get some jacked up prices like some of you guys get. A Columbus thrift store has about 20 Talbot ties for $12-15 each.  I was lucky to snag this one for $10. Rarely would I call something NWOT but I think this one might be. Available.

Some minty fresh horsebit loafters. My size, but I don't know if I can pull these off at 21.

Clown shoes.

 

 

Strands in a 13 AAA

 

Does this mean they were resoled and reheeled?

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

J.Crew. madras for me

 

 

 

Also, since I'm home for the weekend I was looking for my dad's shoe shine kit. Found this sitting on top of a rack of gaudy Garcia ties. He had no idea where it came from.

 

 

 

 

How old would this have to be to have a $75 price tag on it? I told him I wanted it and he called me a hoarder and demanded I sell it for him.

My wife glanced over when I started laughing out loud at this comment.

Very nice!  I really like the subdued one.  Sometimes Brioni can be a little on the "wild" side. :)
