The slick pattern is what grabbed my eye and told me to take a closer look.

A good sign.

 

No vents, but if you can rock this, you don't need em.

 

Buttons- Frosty.

 

Let's head inside...

 

 

Anyone seen that printed in black instead of blue? Is this that made in Italy tag?

 

Made for some gent named

This one.

Most of my B's are of that script but in blue. I have seen ones in black before. This was made in what? 80's?

Butter soft leather, only issue is a broken zipper and a scuff below that. Not sure if I can have that fixed but I can live with it, it is better than a back pack with a jacket or suit on. Getting a $500 briefcase for $8... Priceless

I am getting slightly better at tying bow-ties...
also I really freaking love this shirt, spread collar french cuff covered placket is super versatile I would be happy only owning this and a light blue button down collar shirt
details of the jacket (Click to show)


AppleMark

no fucking clue about this brand but I love the 60s looking geometric patterns in the lining
the roped and slightly extended shoulders really add some weight to my silhouette (not everything can be soft shouldered and Italian right?)
also I love the lower button stance that buttons right at my belly button
some of you might like dual vents on a tux but I am glad this is ventless
overall the only things I would change about this jacket would be to give it red Dracula esque lining, turnback cuffs and slightly wider lapels, but I honestly don't think anyone at my senior ball would notice these details anyways...
AppleMark

I swapped out to fabric covered buttons I sourced on the bay
this is also probably the most accurate photo of the actual color of the suit...

now that the photos have finally loaded i am going out into the field to find some kiton smile.gif

Ian, that fits you great. Well done. You need a cummerbund or vest, though. It's not OK to go without your waistband covered with a SB tux. And you need better shoes, too, but that's already been said.

Details:
jacket: no-name 1970's washable seersucker, from capnwes
shirt: Lord & Taylor, going out of business sale
PS: made in Italy silk, from GMMcL
belt: Coach, from Fueco
pants: BB, from tubs
socks: Pantherella green merino, Marshalls
shoes: 1970's J&M Aristocraft lizard-skin, eBay

Bro, that jacket is not good. Those lapels are dated, and not in a good way. If you had them narrowed it might be better, but it's probably not worth spending that kind of money on what's probably a polyester jacket, if it's washable.

Sorry. confused.gif

Oh, but the cufflink box is awesome!

I'm pretty sure that's a member here.

Can't recall his username though.

I have one of these too (from a thrift). Mine has a grooved shelf at the top to put your cufflinks, change, watch etc. Also, I read somewhere that after a long day, you should let your suit jacket rest to it can air itself out. Your pants, too.

A few recent finds:

4x Hermes tiez. The bunny and the dove one have some stains, which I’m hoping my drycleaner can take out.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

NWOT PRL jeans. How do I know they’re NWOT? The front button still had that protective cap thing.

Black suede Church’s hand made in fine shape. Tagged 9M. Made in Italy, though.

Staple minty white PRL dress shirt with the cursive writing. Gr8 Mops.

Versace tie. First ever at a thrift(!)

Recent E Zegna tie.

Never really noticed that these Zegna ties have this stitching in the back of the neck. Very cool.

The guy asked for $30 for all of them and my son looks crestfallen and says no he is going to put them back and the guy gave him ~10lbs of Legos for $20.

Got into a sold out basketball game that way before. Those little crumbsnatchers come in handy sometimes....

You would love my Uncle's garage. He has a bunch of classics, some have never seen rain. I know he has a 69 COPO and he might have a Yenko. Been a while since I've had a look at them.

Can anyone ID this Italy maker?
It's pretty crappy but for $8 that fits like a glove it will make a decent bar hoping coat

post #70980 of 125098
I passed on this, but I also want to make sure that it was the right decision




Prada


EZ in some of the softest damn cotton ever. Does anyone know the name for cottons that basically feel like silk? I've run into it on Brioni before so I figure it's something I don't know about.



ACNE flannel, lightweight & MOP buttons



Haberdash (by Gitman) - these are basically Gitman vintage shirts without the tag.



Oxxford colorful check
