And man, do I need a record player, even if I do only own three records.

A few of my finds from the last couple of weeks.

 

One local store has really been putting out the scarves lately. All for me or the missus so n/a.

Clockwise: Crombie cashmere, unknown USA lambswool, James Pringle lambswool, Johnston's of Elgin blackwatch lambswool

 

Gap (yeah, yeah, but it's red white & blue, and made in Italy), unused Pendleton, Highland Tweeds lambswool, Sol (Peru) baby alpaca, Lochcarron lambswool

 

E-thrifted these for peanuts

 

Finally found a T&A shirt in my size, feels good, yup it does (n/a)

 

PRL Italy (Corneliani I believe) SC with an interesting fabric composition

Rayon/Flax/Nylon

 

 

Heavy-ass tweed by P & J Haggart

J Crew Ludlow jacket, fits me, probably n/a

One dude's collection of BB suits, got to keep the BB hangars too. Unfortunately, upon closer inspection at home, the Golden Fleece has a nifty tear in the jacket. :brick:

 

Oxxford suit

Southwick suit, navy with a sweet blue and green windowpane. Fits me, n/a.

Two of the more interesting pieces.

First, a SC from Field Custom Tailors, made in 1987. Dual vent, ticket pocket, working cuffs, handwork all over the place. No content tag on it, but light wear on some parts of the fabric has left some long-ish fibers that have me thinking it's not 100% wool. Maybe some % of mohair, I dunno. But it fits me without alteration, so n/a.

Trads, and New Yorkers in particular, for your viewing pleasure I have found a vintage navy topcoat from Rogers Peet. Also my size and n/a. In great shape for its age, a few stray cat hairs on it, but no damage to the fabric.

 

 

 

ACWA tag is the 1949 style, red numbers with no ® symbol, so I think the best I can narrow it down is 1949-1961.

Hey denim guys, apparently "selvedge" is pronounced as "cell bitch" in Japan. :lol:

Sounds like my 20's. Good times they were.

Field makes very good quality items. I recently had a suit, that I sold, that was really well constructed. If it were my size, I would of taken that over any Brioni. IMO

Picked up an old sportswear sweater, 50's? 60's? All wool and looks like it might have had a patch on the front at one time. Otherwise, it pristine!

Great find, Easy! That looks a lot older to me judging by the styles of the labels, especially the text style on the "All Wool" label. Screams 30's-40's. I would guess 1940's. WPL numbers started in the early 40's (I think 41 or 42) Score!

Guys, 

 

Hoping one of you sartorially inclined can help me out. I picked up this !!!!Ladies!!! Bernhard Altmann Cashmere overcoat on either my 1st or 2nd thrifting visit this summer. 

 

Just getting around to photo's and listing. It has ragland sleeves and sort of a sweetheart collar that comes to a point in the back center of the neck. 

 

No buttons, no loops for a tie or a belt. However, when I was taking photo's last night, I found that there are a set of buttons on the under each side of the lapel. I have no idea really, but would these have been for attaching a fur collar or something like that.?

Ah shit. I take pics of labels that I don't recognize to research for later, and just looked up Ben Silver. Damnit; I had 10+ ties in front of me but passed.

+1 on this pick up!

Now only if that patch or letter were to turn up!

Looks like it was a cheer sweater, that patch shape looks like a megaphone similar to this style without the paws:
