That's what I thought when I first looked at the label, but at the bottom of the tag it says that the pants are lined with 100% cotton.  That made me think that it must be an orphan.  Do you think that's a red herring, though?

^It's sexy whatever it is.

Hit Marshall's since there's been chat about them a lot recently. Only had one of the Pantharella 3-packs in my Bigfoot sizes (and I don't really need a set of tan, purple, and purple socks). But I did snag one of those cashmere (ok, 70/30 cashmere/silk) HF's. Will look nice come winter.

And then I come home to my most recent e-thrift! Finally a proper brown tie I could actually see wearing (I've thrifted a few from nice makers, but they're just not my style).

Has anybody found this brand before? Pretty neat Indian and Dutch design duo. Edit: can't seem to upload photos from my phone, the label is Preachoo + Krejberg

^^^ Never heard of it but looks pretty cool from their stuff online. Grab it!

Hmm, I guess we'll never know then. That's odd. Still, I've never seen suit pants lined with cotton. It's always been cupro/the same stuff the jacket is lined with.

Anyone know how to check the authenticity of a Gucci kids belt?





Also picked up a LL Bean rabbit fur trapper hat.





Finally, came across my first pair of selvedge. APC Petite size 32. I would need a time machine to fit into them, but if anyone in North Atlanta is interested, shoot me a PM and I will let you know where to get them.

+1 I have a sportcoat and it is great! Any chance it is a 40?

Saw this a few days ago at the local OTC.

 

Had time to drop by one shop yesterday for a quick run around the store

Current Gitman Vintage for S_allen_P and a sweet Barbour Chelsea that needs to get itself into a washing machine asap.

In the field. Grenson for Paul Stuart? How old are these?



Reheeled

I believe it it has just New York stamped, that would be the oldest label. I'm intrigued .

"If", stupid autocorrect

A few interesting things: truly Annie Hall-era Polo sportcoats. Both tweed; one with dual vents and a ticket pocket; the other with a single vent.

 

 

 

Two ties: '70s Givenchy "Gentleman" Paris all-silk tie; '60s/'70s NWT pheasant tie. Wicked colours.

Hit a few places today - Marshalls, TJX and some GW's.  Not a whole lot...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Vintage Erector Set, 1959 model.

  

Bunch of parts; not sure if they're correct for this set.  Came with the booklet, dated 1959 as well.

 

One of the projects is "Bench" - looks pretty challenging - might try to build it when I have a free weekend.

 

Robert Graham clearance at Marshalls.

 

Luciano Barbera clearance at TJX.

 

Generic Burberry's made in USA.

 

Nice pattern tho.

 

Pendleton shirt-jac-thing, wool.

 

Made in USA.

 

Ashtray, because why not for a buck?

 

On Wisconsin!

 

Couple run-of-the-mill BB shirts.

 

Picked these up because they seemed well-made, though never heard of the brand.

 

"Stradel's", made in Italy?  Will have to look it up later.

EDIT: apparently Stradel's has a few boutique shops in Paris...

 

Sueded leather sport coat, needs a cleaning and brushing.

 

Made in Argentina.

 

Southwick herringbone.

 

 

 

For me - no name brand.

 

...unless "Bob Timberlake" is a thing...

 

Another for me - McKenzie Tribe, who I really like.

 

 

 

Are these the good LL Bean boots?  Leather...

 

 

 

Made in USA, and I think that says "11" on the sole in some weird font.

 

Bit worn, but at GW prices, if they're "good" Bean's, then why not.

 

Allen Edmonds Burton, in decent shape.

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT #2: forgot to mention - found cash money again - a crisp $20 this time, in a sport coat pocket.  Last time was a $20 and either a $5 or a $10, in women's jeans.  Pretty much makes up for the unused $50 Macy's gift card I lost sometime in the last week.
