Yeah. I ignored it for the first few times because of the label. Now I see it and the fabric feels pretty nice even next to some of the other things I've handled. It also has a tweed-y pattern to it. I think it's a houndstooth. I'll check it out again soon. The first time I saw it, I thought it might have been a woman's blazer because of the name. I had no idea at the time that Donna Karen New York and DKNY were the same thing :p


The finds today were:

1) BB Check/Windowpane SC in my size. Keeping.

2) BB Windowpane camelhair SC in a 41 Reg. Available.

 

This even came with a pair of sleeve buttons and a regular button in the breast pocket! It's gorgeous and I wish it was my size! The lapels look a little old, but the pattern matching on the breast pocket is spot on.

 

I'll take better pics when I have natural light on my side. I need to pass out. Need to be up for work in 4 hours. Tomorrow night is going to hurt! :)

A few other cool things from today: two Icelandic wool sweaters and an acrylic throw by Faribault Woolen Mills.

I'd found a really awesome wool sweater from Ireland, but upon getting home I realized it had a hole in the sleeve :(

Always check thoroughly in the store. I get stared at when I inspect wool sweaters... My mom taught me how to inspect these things when I was really young...

Discontinued Polo line errr, precursor PRL made by Corn. and to the standards of the now PRL. The tag looks a lot like St. Andrews' but ti's not. Ohhhh wait, I guess it doesn't...Oppies!

Start with a suede eraser if you have any bad stains (e.g., dirt); you can find these anywhere. Then I use the Saphir suede cleaner, which is basically a shampoo. Let dry and the brush with a suede brush. Then treat with Saphir Renovateur suede spray, Saphir Super Invulner waterproofing spray, or just plain Terrago suede protector. 

 

Bottom line you need a suede eraser, which you can pick up anywhere. I'm not familiar with the range of suede shampoos, but I've had good luck with Saphir. Then all you really need is Terrago, which you can find all over, to waterproof and protect against stains. 

 

I have a pair of Peal suede chukka boots (crazy sale on them at the moment; warning, run narrow) with a Dainite sole and it's been my go to wet weather shoe. Combination of the rubber sole and the Terrago makes it perfect when there is rain out. (No, I'm not standing or running through puddles.)

Cool jacket and vest combo from 1970.  Couple discreet moth holes, but for $6 I couldn't say no.  Color is brown with a tinge of green (need to find a damn camera).

And didn't get this old Hugo Boss DB suit.  Tags in German.  Super 100's I think.  Is it worth anything at all?  Anyone want it?  Might pick it up as a costume...

Yeah, but I think Caruso only made for RLBL for suits and SCs while St. Andrews made strictly for RLPL which Cantarelli is the parent company of. IDK why but every time I see that Corn. label (not the run of the mill PRL label) I always mistaken it for Incotex...

post #89902 of 110791

Just for you, Barrelntrigger...

 

(Apparently made by) Lucky Brand. No tags other than those posted before. The selvage on the sleeves stuck out like a sore thumb on the rack of jackets.

Levis Capital E 501 Selvage Jeans. Well worn, but plenty of life left. Tagged 32x32, but they fit like a 34x31, which is cool because it works for me. Does the mix of copper and silver rivets seem odd?

That jacket looks kool! But I don't know how I feel about a denim blazer...It's kinda too 70's, ya? Capital E line is pretty awesome! I think it's from the mid 2000's and since have been discontinued. I prefer them to LVC's actually. I've read some where it's a single needle construction with tons of handy work. Never owned a pair but would like to own a pair of raws. Good shit!

post #89904 of 110791

Hmm, I thought it was more of a chore coat kinda thing. You might be right though...

Too lazy to go look for pictures but I pulled a pleated Ricci a few months ago, best tie I've sold to date, IIRC it was about $85

I dont think its Corn. I just found a pair of PRL cords with that tag, and have seen RLPL with a similar tag....
