First off, I can't believe I'm saying this, but that G-Star jacket is fucking awesome. Second, that old ass Zegna tie reminds me of Crono Trigger for some reason. Anybody remember Crono Trigger....anybody? Third, that RL Country waxed jacket is so, so, awful, yet so, so amazing!

As promised:

AppleMark
 
 

 

 

Post- "the treatment". Spotted a teeny hole at the top left hand corner of that front pocket, but thats it. Interested in finding out why the back is structured like that (is this a regular shirt or "safari" shirt?) Any other details I should pay attention to, feel free to let me know. Many thanks!

Is that Threads Count? http://threadscountpdx.com/

The guy who does fittings for Proper Suit in Portland and San Francisco is one of the owners. I've only been in once, but it seems like a nice shop.

Trafalgar Braces (available)

 

J. Press Seersucker 3-roll-2 44L (available)

AppleMark

 

PRL ~36 - available (only tag is the "made by hand" one, but buttons are PRL, feels like 100% wool, perhaps some cashmere in there?)

 

Incotex for EZ (n/a)

 

Incotex Chino lino (n/a)

 

Zanella Bennett ~35/36 (available)

 

NWT but real, real old EZ - available (would you have bought for $2?) - how would you even describe this pattern?

AppleMark

 

 

 

Also scooped up an EZ Angora/Wool/Cashmere blend jacket, and a  Willis and Geiger Shirt last night that is like this, but in perfect condition. Photos to come and will be available.


Nice haul man, I would have grabbed everything even the tie. I can't believe you found a pair on NON-PLEATED Zanellas. I didn't know they existed in thrift land lol8[1].gif.

 

EDIT to add spoiler

And can I use regular polish?

No. You have to use a special cleaner/conditioner specific to reptiles. I use Aristocrat reptile /exotic formula.

Selvedge and other things. (Click to show)

 

 

4x Gap, Uniqlo, Paul Smith, Nudie

DSQUARED2 Non selvedge made in Italy

This poorly photographed bomb diggity cord coat from Varvatos made in Italy

Helmut that I paid too much for & Patrik Ervell that I didn't.

 

My winner of the day, is this badass unlined leather jacket from BLUR again made in Italy.  Priced in with the shirts, probably becuase of it's odd construction.  Tagged medium, but must be a slim fit med because it just doesn't fit me, I so wish it did.  The leather is soooooo soft and the weathering on it is cool.

 

 

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifThat's such an awesome haul!

Eddie Bauer x Ford bag probably going to keep this one, it's nicer than my other EBxFord one.

 

Pretty dope custom White Sox baseball jacket 48. Wool body and synthetic(boo) sleeves. Anybody have any idea how old this is? The company's website shows they've been around for 50 years, and this one looks kind of old (beat up, at least). Oh and it was only $3 nod[1].gif.

Lastly, can I get some authentication help? My impression of this was that it was real and probably womens based on the sleeves. Anyone know for sure?

It's tagged Small, but it is definitely not small. Closer to L or bigger.

And a very cool HT for $1 at the GW outlet store--I don't think it was ever worn. I don't even care that it's LE, but I do wish that it fit:
