Pretty disappointing trip. Grabbed this for a steep discount though

Uniqlo selvedge S002, straight leg. 175cm so that's 5 foot 9. So I'm thinking it's around a size 32, 34. Holla!

I found this cool Duxbak belted hunting jacket tonight - I don't know much about it, but I recall that someone on the thread dug them. Can anyone tell me how old this is judging by the label? If it really strikes someone's fancy, I would be happy to trade. Thanks!

I've only seen this pattern as L'Ecole Espagnole de Vienne.

 

The scarf you found has the same background, but does not have the same text.

Everything to my untrained eye seems to check out but I would love a second opinion on it's authenticity. Also any information on what this is a picture of would be great, appears to be German/Austrian. (please be real!)

I've been near people who get all excited when they find Tommy "Hilfinger" and go on about how much they could sell it for on eBay, so I pay no attention to the obvious flippers - it's the ones who flip thru 200 hangars in 2 minutes very quietly and draw no attention to themselves that I don't bother getting behind.

Very cool find. Can you post a close-up of the buttons? Judging by the label and the graphic style, I'd guess late 20's-mid 30's. A real treasure. I'm not even going to ask what size, my coat closet is bursting at the seams.

Is this the good Gieves and Hawkes label?

Red hair? Yeah, that lady is everywhere.

Looks dope Ian. I'm still working on my formal rig but found a Brooks Brothers tux, BB opera pumps, and a nice set of formal studs/links recently. I regret now selling a BB bow/cummerbund I found last year baldy[1].gif

Like the pairings? Constructive critics are encouraged.

 

Looks pretty good, would be good to see the full fit though if you're looking for real criticism. The only thing that seems off is the shirt collar, which looks kinda unnaturally stuffed under the jacket lapels. Longer points would be better I think.

 

And re: all the insane flipper talk... I still remember striking up a conversation with another flipper, which ended up being an incredibly pleasant chat that carried on as we looked through the racks, exchanging stuff we thought the other person might like better. I guess that's just the Canadian experience.

 

Of course, we know some Toronto flippers are a bit more volatile.

I love hearing people make a big deal out of shite brands... Yesterday, while I was handling a Kiton shirt, I heard some dude going on about a Facconable shirt. To each his own, i suppose!

I don't recall thrifting in Atlanta. Well, there was that one time in college..

Thanks for the info - so damn cool to find something potentially that old! Here is a pic of the buttons: 

And another of the coat:
