A tweed, checked, ticket-pocketed, hacking pocketed, metal-buttoned orphan?

Pretty sure.

Lol. Just screwing with you man. There was a bit of a stir around here when my pic was cropped and misrepresented on PTO.

I dig that coat for sure. Tweedaholic here.

In the field. This was in a suit with the tag cut out. Any ideas on maker?
Oh and are Malcolm Kenneth over coats worth picking up?

Had to pass on a Burberrys and a valencia (I think that was the name can't remember for sure) because they didn't fit and we're unvented were these a bad pass?
post #70240 of 117758
Passed on orphans by Paul Stuart, Canali mainline and Tiger Of Sweden (is there an SF opinion of this brand? I know they make nice sweaters and other woolens). Also passed on ties by EZ and Boss that looked fakish.

Was this a worthy pickup?

Maybe 20-30 bucks.

Drops these on the rack 1 minute later...


AppleMark


Top row Zegna, bottom row Versace. Yes the second from the right Versace does in real life look like one of the portals from Sliders...

Uhoh, those little circles on the bottom right of the versace ties are giving me some pause. label group shot? I hope the labels are not black with gold writing.....

Spoo...that sounds like something a vintage Pendleton whore might like.

More pics of the Hermes. It has some stains, but it was only a dollar. I'm gonna take it to Rave and see if they can do anything about it.

Rave cleaned up a bunch of Hermes scarves for my mom that she bought from an estate. Took a while, but they did an amazing job. She ended up a thousand bucks or so richer.
post #70245 of 117758
They really do amazing work at Rave. I just passed on a stained Hermes tie this evening. Rave likely could have saved it, but the pattern wasn't that cool anyway. Any Hermes scarf, though, is worth the trouble, I'd say.

Very nice find, dexconstruct.

Also, that Arnys is incredible. Is that a Forestière?
