They fit, so I'll see how beautiful I can make them before I decide whether or not to flip.post #70323 of 1387285/9/13 at 8:20pmpost #70324 of 1387285/9/13 at 8:23pmpost #70325 of 1387285/9/13 at 8:24pm
Haven't forgotten about that polo, I'll mail it to you eventually.
Actually I lied about that being my only celebrity clothing. Found five of Antonio Harvey's suits.

I guess a lot of Pac NW businessmen travel to Hong Kong, so I find stuff from HK tailors in the thrifts all the time. This 1970s suit has a crazy high waist, but I actually kind of liked the look - I just couldn't pull the trigger. Thoughts? Would any of you rock it?post #70328 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:00pmpost #70329 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:07pmI'm BACK, bitches!
No, not really. Life still chaos. But DID go to work today (see thrift fit below) and DID hit a couple stores.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Vintage unlined Scottish wool
Unknown cotton sq, hand rolled
(Colors are all washed out; natural light sucked)
Testoni worn maybe 1x, my size and should look awesome once shined.
Cole Hahn hand made in Italy, welted and sewn sole -- this is the good stuff, 8.5D I think
AE some name I can't remember cap toe blutcher. Needs TLC, but lovely oxblood color. 10.5D Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Shirts: Borrelli (hand sewn collar), Chang
Orvis (good stuff, I think) forest green cord, with all the features - removable throat latch, patch pockets, shooting vents at shoulders. 42R, and keeping for now
Southwick linen. 38R. Available Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Crombie wool/cashmere 40R. Prolly an orphan.
PRL solid gray 6 over 2 DB, dual vent, USA made. 46L Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Ties. All from one. Freaking. Store.
L to R: Brioni, Gianni (never heard of it but like so I'm keeping), PRL, VV (kid size), Hermes, E. Zegna, Luciano Barbera, Versace V2, Ferragamo, RLPL NWT x 2 (YO SPOO: That gray dot look familiar? )
The Ferragamo and Brioni seem NWOT, which I could believe given the RLPLs are NWT.
Oh, and the Torneau watch for Praxair. This may have been a mistake. It's very nice, but I think I overpaid. If anyone needs a last minute mother's day gift, let me know. All reasonable offers considered (whether it covers my cost or not).post #70330 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:12pmpost #70331 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:19pmpost #70332 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:22pmpost #70333 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:36pmQuote:Originally Posted by capnwes
A proper "Hello" to these. Some random scuffing on the instep, I suppose from rattling around in the box for years.

Welcome back GMMcL, those shoes....post #70334 of 1387285/9/13 at 9:55pm
I found 3 Samuelsohn 3 piece (vest) suits today from the early 1970s. My knowledge of Samuelsohn is limited. Is this a good period or a less desirable period?
Also, I have limited Bachrach knowledge. Have passed on many until today. Hard to pass up 100% cashmere, made in Italy. This seems to be a little more casual.. almost an overcoat, but not nearly as long? Do they make their own items?
Also, not pictured has been a bumper crop of Charvet ties. I passed up on a polyester Charvet tie a month ago, and ever since then, the nice silk ones have been popping up everywhere. I like it!post #70335 of 1387285/9/13 at 10:19pmCouple stores after work myself...some ok pickups...some bizarre, and one non clothing find that I thought I would never find in a thrift.
couple nice Alden loafers - should clean up nicely
nice PRL jacket, unstructured, patch pockets
And now for the bizarre!
vintage wrestling boots - these are actually kinda nicely made...vinyl on outside, leather lined, headed to the bay
and for the non clothing find...anyone else got one of these?
