Don't know much about denim.  I know selvage is good (only the Edwin is selvage though).  But the other two I've seen posted here before.

 

WESC (size 31, available); Joe's; Edwin

Pink, beautiful ETRO (I actually like it); Kashani (not sure of this, there were about six of these with a bunch of Lorenzinis - probably all from the same donor. I grabbed this one)

 

Lorenzini, Zegna, RG, Brioni

 

Brioni; PRL wool; PRL silk x 2; Gucci

Not sure of this, but I think I recall Spoo saying he never leaves cashmere

Canali suit (smallish)

And these, I was in a hurry because my parking meter was about to run out, then I saw these.  Looked at the soles...looked good so grabbed.  Got home and saw some damage to the leather. :brick:

The Wesc denim are made in China, yes? Joe's are ok for resell but sucks for self wear unless you just don't give a damn about the denim you wear. lol Edwin selvedge is a good cop and they are my size!!!!!!!!!!!!! :smarmy:  PM inbound!

 

Belvest is a good cop although I don't always cop the ones that are out of style. Canali is hella old.

I've always liked this record and the cover. A while back I made made a t-shirt print of it (put plastic record cover over the sleeve and drew with a marker, then cut out the lines with a razor, applied paint with sponge).

 

 

And one for the disco lovers

Very slow here lately. Pair of Zegna jeans that fit my son, and a Dunhill polo that fits me. Not brag-worthy enough for a photo.

OTOH, I showed the the Jean Patou perfume I found a couple of weeks ago in an antique shop to some of the local perfumistas. When they picked their jaws up off the floor, they assured me that it is from the late 1940s and is a museum-quality piece. The juice has deteriorated but is not entirely gone. So I'm real happy with that one. Here's another photo.

Damn dude, that has to be worth a couple grand at least.

As you know Hanover shoe is long since out of business, but the Hanover shoe horse farms are still a top notch nursery on the east coast. Their barns are all over the place here. All painted yellow.

From CH ties, T&A designers, obscure shoe markings?????? HTF do you remember all of this.

Gentleman,

 

I have been lurking and learning for some time, and appreciate viewing all of your finds and consuming the information available here. I have much reading to do before I would feel comfortable operating as many of you do, but emerge from the shadows now to ask for your help. In short, I made a rookie mistake: I bought myself a sport coat with shoulders that are slightly too large for me. After having the coat dry cleaned (likely, my second rookie mistake), I went to a tailor with an excellent reputation expecting $100-150 in alternation costs, but was quoted $300. Now, I'm in a position where I need to sell the coat and want to make sure I can provide an accurate description of it. Pictures of the jacket and its tags are below. My primary question is, is this jacket anything more than a standard, mainline Brooks Brothers sport coat? If it is mainline, the searching I've done, suggests the maker is likely Lardini. Thoughts here would also be appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

It's a gift/curse. It's not quite a photographic memory, I do forget some things. I'm great with faces, horrible with names. It can be frustrating when I remember stuff everyone else has forgotten. My wife finds my memory fairly annoying. She forgets everything.

 

 

But in this instance, I has an Edward Sexton tie a while back by CH, and did a bunch of research on him.

 

I live just outside of Hanover. Right out of highschool, my Mother in law and her sister both worked in the factory stitching shoes. Hanover wingtips were the first menswear items I ever sold on the bay. I grabbed them because they looked nice and seemed to be good quality, knew nothing about them at all. I sold all of them (3 pairs) in under an hour for $108 each.....I was hooked. That was a little over 2 years ago.

I use this to my advantage with my girlfriend.
