Ouch. Yes, that's exactly what you're hoping to find. Hermes in good condition with a fun pattern. inlove.gif

Is anyone a 39 short? HF LP charcoal (with faint windowpane) suit. Store is low traffic so I left, but can proxy for someone or trade.

So many bikers, I Love it. Looking for smith/oakley/dragon anon goggles, ios/m1,eg2/ von zippers, the proven good stuff. Staying away from anything that has bad peripheral vision. Thanks again

Label looks fine so far, but I didnt know Hermes made 7 folds. Check for the serial number and Hermes seal on the smaller end. Scour the tie for printing smudge or irregularities; Hermes doesnt let "seconds" get out into circulation. And check the back of the wide part for the loop, though I guess that wouldnt be there on a 7 fold....

Found an oxxford with a pattern but there's no pant size inside. How do I confirm that it's not an orphan? Edit: some lining damage on the inside. Guess it's a pass. First time seeing one in the wild :/

Also that air force peacoat is still here. Damage is just lining on one sleeve if anyone wants a proxy.

My mistake. I apparently have a total misconception of the term 7-fold. Just read some stuff on tie variations and pretty sure its not a 7-fold. What resources are available for the serial number check?

 

Unfortunately I found out the shop opens late on monday. Since I am away for work most of the day I may not be able to pick it up. Fingers crossed it's still there tuesday.

Don't normally post prices, but it was 50% off this to boot...




The label looks '20s style to me. Most of the completed listings are for '40s & '50s, and the closest label I've found was from a '20s version that sold on a vintage clothing dealer's site. I have a feeling someone on here will have a knowledge base of these. smile.gif

 

Me likey.  Now go forth and find me some 1960s Duofold Model 701 loopwheel short sleeve undershirts.  Preferraby in a size 36 or 38.

I was wondering what this was all about. Did I miss a dust-up? I hope not.

Then I fell asleep...

Also, if we could also just get a brief reprise of the 38R vs. caseyfud, that was very entertaining. Thx. laugh.gif

Yeah, I don't qualify. Over 500 posts, I've bought stuff with the sole intention of selling on ebay, and used the word ethrift before (last night! Ha!). In Andro's eyes, I am forever unclean.

Two evenings, 3 stores (Click to show)

Eton & J Press.  Both pretty rare around here.

 

 

Polo 93% Cashmere, 7% Wool, hand knitted... in China, but still...

 

 

BB chino, BB herringbone tweed. 

 

 

4x Bills Khakis.

 

 

Has Incotex ever made for Hickey Freeman?  The pants in the back certainly look like Incos..., and a pair of Vineyard Vines corduroys, as well as Hickey Freeman for Bobby Jones Loud golf pants.

 

 

Brioni Cannes and Oxxford trousers.

 

 

Fairly loud pinstripe (chalkstripe?) Oxxford suit.

 

 

J Crew blazer, Jack Victor, and Lands End tweed.

 

 

Harris Tweed made in Great Britain, vintage BB 346 camelhair, BB glen plaid.

 

 

 

interesting color flecks on the HT, unfortunately my iphone blew out most of the colors.

 

Pimptastic eggplant cashmere blazer by Jos Banks w/pocket square.

 

 

J Crew Ludlow tweed.

 

 

Has two moth holes on the back, but at $.99, I had to.  Never seen Zegna Su Misura in person, and a cashmere blend... may try sending to a reweaver.

 

 

 

My second piece of Filson this week. $4.99

 

 

May not be an awesome brag, but I really liked the Gant Wool Flyer jacket I picked up.  Leather sleeves and collar, throat latch.  

 

 

 

Couple pairs AE.

 

 

And I e-thrifted these Corneliani ties.  The one in the middle sold me - I had to have them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think I threw a bid on these as well.

Is SPY Optics a brand you steer clear of? They have there warehouse sale at the end of every year and I always pick up new glasses and goggles. I've got a lot sitting around if you're interested.
