Kapital Redux Selvedge Denim Cape (Shawl?):








  Detail shots. (Click to show)






I know a little about Kapital and have been trying to find some info. Apparently Redux is entirely made by hand and seems to use a lot of re-purposed materials. Anyone else have some info to share? Shoot me a PM.

Not trying to be facetious but...is that for a woman or a man?

ERDL camo jacket and pants. Appear pretty much unworn. Totally would have passed had I not remembered Nataku's camo tutorial, although I couldn't find it until after I bought them. Is fairly rare to find both pieces together?

Jackpot!!! Not only do those appear unworn (the labels look crisp) and early (dated 1968), but you found both the pants and the jacket?! Wow! Yes, finding them together is rare. I've never found a pair together. Ever. The pants are the hardest to find because they were literally worn into the ground. The jackets are around but scarce. When they do pop up they're usually faded, have holes and are pretty beat. Prepare yourself for a good chunk of change if you decide to take them to eBay.

Picked up an Isaia brown nailhead "Sciammeria Spider" 2 button, double vented SC in a EU 56. Too big and available. Also my old friend Kiton popped up today in a 15.5X34. Also doesn't fit:censored:...available

It can be easy to forget stuff as its being topped by other badass stuff.

Agreed, great idea.

Hadn't found a tie worth a shit lately, so even at consignment pricing, I was excited to pick this sexy ETRO beast up for myself

 

Finally a so-so day at the shops! Only went out for a bit. Can't wait for the Halloweeners to be gone. (This stuff is tentatively UNAVAILABLE because I need the monies... Unless you have something in 12E that I can't refuse)

I don't always buy denim, but when I do... (Click to show)

Selvedge black rockers. Waist is (probably stretched to this size) near 40, length, though hemmed is around 37, so it could easily be re-hemmed for non giants.

Born on date?

 

Seemed pretty nice. (Click to show)

Pièce de résistance-- RRL Hamilton waistcoat. Well, that's the model closest to this that's currently offered.

Buckle back detail (Click to show)

Hope to get those turned around and posted quickly. Also might have ran into someone who I think will be best described as West Coast Spoo, pending further investigation.

Found this guy...not my size but I picked it up for my brother. Haven't heard this brand mentioned on here but seems like a cool find. Google tells me it's pretty quality stuff and perhaps a little rare in the states.

Amazingly enough, too big for me.

They aren't spectacular, but damnit, it's been dry out here and I refuse to get paged.
