If there are any Trailblazers/Timberwolves fans on here, Uncle Spoo listed a Zegna su misura jacket that belonged to Brandon Roy. My only celebrity clothing find to date.

A weird old pair of C&J's, purchased in Jo-berg, surely in the bad old days.

They fit, so I'll see how beautiful I can make them before I decide whether or not to flip.

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.

+1000 Hell of a find.  DM7 and I did some digging at it is valued at $2,000-3,000.

Also, I came close to buying this old suit. 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?

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? fistbump.gif )
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).

Hey GMMcL, could you share a shot of the Gianni label? Curious if its a line by Gianni Campagna, or totally unrelated.
post #70332 of 125282
GMMcL welcome back, bet it felt nice being back in the hunt. Nice fit too.

I haven't gone out in weeks. I am itching so bad.

Will try. Left it in CT and won't be back home for a couple days. Could be; it was Made in Italy and seemed very well made.

Welcome back GMMcL, those shoes.... worship2.gifworship.gifdrool.gif

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!
