very interesting article! thanks for posting! I tend to agree with the conclusion the author has made about quality and price, but i would still love to have a pair of Lobbs!

Not terribly dated -- the gorge is actually neither too low nor downward facing, but look again. There's a hole. I passed before you did.

I too had to leave a wounded Oxxford in the field today...navy camel hair blazer, great condition and reasonably recent, but with a nasty hole on the shoulder as though the owner caught it on a barbed wire fence when running from zombies (or something...it's been a long day!).

THANK YOU!

Not that there's anything wrong with a bunch of ties, you understand. I absolutely love ties, but I figure anyone who has done this more than once, has gotten their fair share.

Can't tell what size it is, but either an ascot or one of their over-sized twilly's, from the looks of it.

I would have grabbed those if I were you. I've had really good luck selling Levis bellbottoms. Usually get $40-$70.

That's their current details label, which isn't saying much. They switched to that label in 1994 or so. Still, I pick up suits with this label if they are in good shape and at a decent price.

So I got up this morning and sat in this for 2 hours to get to my usual stores:



Last time I went in a snow storm nobody was there and two racks of killer recent Adrian Jules and Paul Stuart suits came out. Literally had them all to myself. Got there today in hopes of a replay of that day. No such luck. The stores were barren except for a few regulars. No goodies coming out though. Just junk. frown.gif

I did find a couple things to not make the trip a total loss. Nothing spectacular by any means but cool stuff. I'm calling it a good day simply due to the fact that I made it there and back in one piece. Counted 25 cars spun out/in the ditch on my trek. 4x4 doesn't make you invincible to the laws of physics. teacha.gif



Vintage Lee 101J sanforized denim jacket.


Vintage Nike windbreaker





Helmut Lang women's shawl thing.
