Welcome back!

suited, JL3212, that is some nice stuff!  French Shriners look good, nice pickup, as is that Talking Heads album; just went to a friend's place for a small vinyl party where he had that same exact record.

Fishy went thrifting. 

 

You know how it is, all available. 

 

 

Experts, help me ID this maker!

 

Tags are gone, but it screams "Savile row" to me. Definitely bespoke. 

 

 

 

Cool design- brass buttoned navy blazer with peaked lapels... but single breasted!


 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Dat buttonhole

 

Dat shoulder seam

 

 

OMGWTFHANDWORK

 

X2

 

 

Handsewn pickstitching all over the frigging place

 

 

No marks on the buttons either- anyone recognize them as distinctive to a maker?

 

 

All handsewn buttonholes.

 

One curious feature: Silk detailing on the outside pockets

 

 

 

 

Just some more glorious pad stitching to look at.

 

 

Stain on cuff :( this is with a flash, it's not really visible. Still, :(

 

 

Red lining- I've only ever seen a lining like this on T&A, Chester Barrie, and H. Huntsman & Sons, so it screams BRITISH to me. Appears to be handsewn into jacket. Sleeve linings have some stains. 

Handsewn pockets

 

 

 

My best guess: Anderson & Sheppard. Anyone know better?

 

 

 

Okay, next up...

 

I don't always buy Jackets made in Mexico...

Near Minty Southwick houndstooth for a buck thirty nine? How could I say no?

Thanks! I actually have no idea which (if any) I'm going to keep. I have a thing for Hermés....they're really my weak spot. There are a few in there that I already have, so I'll be able to weed some out for sure.

Welcome back, Barrel!

If I owe you a PM, really sorry, I'll try to get caught up tonight!

I don't know exactly when the brown label started being used, but I do know it was used from at least the mid 70's till about 1983-1984 when the black label replaced it. Judging by the color of your parka, I'd say early 80's (82-83-ish).
