I snapped some pics as a visual aid as it's hard to explain.

Ground/front door level. First photo is coming in from the front door. Front door is directly to the right in the last picture. Kitchen in the back corner. Dining room and living room to the right. Stairs go up to bedrooms.







Walk-out basement. The closed door on the left in the second photo goes down into the actual basement.





Basement. Please pardon the mess. 1/4 finished. This will eventually be a small man-cave and a family/tv room. Right now it's a 1/4 finished man-cave/storage space/work out space.






Man cave? I'll show you a man cave. Forgive the mess:..

The adjoining bar:



Bar 2.0 (I really like the bar):







The TV/sitting room (Peanut is on the couch):

From the last few days:

 

Hickey Freeman Bespoke: Need to take measurements, but it's available. (will update this post). It's a size or two big on me so I'm guessing it's a 42-44ish

 

 

 

 

PRL wool pants. Made in Italy. Cornelliani? Size 38. Available!

 

 

 

 

PRL Made in Italy jacket. Cornelliani? Size 46L Available.

 

 

They're obviously not a suit, but this is what they look like together.

HF overcoat. This one kinda fits me, but it's a bit big. I can fit a tweed blazer under it pretty comfortably though so... Hm.

Size 40R. Available, especially if you have something to trade in my size.

 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some misc things below.

 

This is the lining damage to the that USAF peacoat I posted the other day.

 

This is the oxford with the lining damage. Old lapels right?

 

 

 

@barrelntrigger

It didn't say it was for barneys. There was a Kilgore, french, and stanbury logo on the inside of the right breast and there was a barneys new york logo on the right.

That is awesome! Love the aquarium and the bar! Looks like you have the whole basement to yourself. If so, I envy you.

Thanks (and there are actually two 125-gallon aquariums, one cichlid, one community). My wife and I made a deal when we bought the house: The basement is mine, the rest of the house is hers. Aside from marrying her, best deal I ever made.

It still needs a few tweaks--I've got a dart board for the game room that needs installing, a few more neon lights to hang (or sell), and I'd like to find an affordable Persian style rug for the TV/sitting room, but I'm close.

All of your PRL is Corneliani, not Cantarelli. Great grab on the grey flannel pants, they're a staple and hard(er) to find in decent condition. This should help you in future:
HOF: Labels, Heels and Nail Patterns - Secrets to ID the Maker - Ignore the Made in Italy for Dunhill tag...it's incorrect but hasn't been updated. That's a Caruso label.

Thought I would join the ChiTown Bedale club . It does helps that Barbour has a flagship store in Chicago .

Thanks! I knew it was one of the two!

All these links are saved on my phone now so I can look in real time.


I was pretty happy with the pants too. Question on the jacket, is it odd or an orphan? The buttons are similar to the color of the jacket but there's nothing on the label that suggests pants. I'm guessing the HF bespoke is part of a suit as well, but that's probably going to be much easier to pair.


This was my first PRL cornelliani find so I'm happy. The last one I found was made in the USA. The jacket is also dual vent which is nice :)

 

Edit:

Question: I found a pair of zanella pants that I didn't pick up because they were pleated. Does that make a difference in this case?

Polo II, so it could be suit or jacket. I'm leaning towards suit (orphan). Basically, I wouldn't buy/wear it apart from a suit.

Re: Zanellas. I'm not sure. Some wear pleats, some don't. They do flatter some builds. If you're asking about sale price, and I suspect you are, they'll probably sell for less. If that's the case, you could have taken a look at ebay to find the answer.

How do you determine when damage is too much to grab something?

4 things in question today.

1) Old oxxford jacket. Had some lining issues near the arm hole. I passed but mostly because it was old. (Cost was 14 bucks)

2) Kilgore, French, and Stanbury suit for barney's new york. It looked great on the outside. When I put my arms in, I realized that there were rips on the lining for the sleeves on both arms. No other issues. It was slightly harder to walk away. (15 bucks). I read up on this label a bit and it was made in canada. I think this was a good pass.

3) No name 100% cashmere made in britain overcoat. Again, lining issues on the inside of the arm hole. (24 bucks). I'm going with good pass.

4) Oscar C. Peterson Overcoat. This thing was pretty damaged tbh. The collar was shredding and the lining needed some work. What kept me staring at it? The tag was dated 1935! The outer was in pretty good condition. (10 bucks)

I skipped on all of these, but I was trying to do some calculus in my head. I stared at the last one for a good long while.

You seem like a nice guy, and I DO like seeing what you find. However, you've been so full of questions leading up to your 500th post, I really just ask that you research things. It's not an attempt to be an ass, but every post has attached questions to which you could answer on your own. Do you want to flip? Perfectly fine with me personally, but figure things out beforehand. I'd love to trade/buy your stuff (sometimes) but really, if you have an interest in menswear, read up on it before you ask your next question(s)

As I said, I don't meant to be impolite and I do hope you stick around, but it's actually fun to learn about this stuff for those in the hobby. Like many things, it won't help no matter how many times someone tells you the information, but it WILL stick once you find it on your own.

Some of my backlog with a little peak of some sweet. Right now nothing is available.
