    I'd be real curious to know where that turned up. Never seen Savile Row anything here.

    Awesome to see that, but makes me miss thrifting. In my sixth week of law school and finding time to thrift is no longer possible. Unfortunately I've been forced to bow out.

    it looks good from here, but i wouldn't feel comfortable personally listing it as such (only because they are extreme ball breakers about that kind of thing)

    Are we posting Savile Row tonight? Because I happen to have found my first ever piece today.

    [​IMG]

    Also found something from up the road on Jeremyn Street. Can't be the same donor though- the pants are (via eyeball) about 36x32.

    [​IMG]

    That was the first store I hit. I passed on a pair of AE Maxfields that had a bit of wear and had started to unravel where the bridge of the loafer is tied down with a thin leather strip. At my second store, I found a pair of Maxfields in much better condition. Snagged them, bring them home, and what do I see...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I could find the receipt, though, which is a rarity for me. At the second store I also found a pair of Agave jeans, my size. I'm slowly cleaning the Target and Express jeans out of my wardrobe and replacing them with midlevel stuff like that. Still yet to see a pair of Isaia or EZ jeans in any size, though.

    Good stuff! Check in the pockets and cuffs of those trousers for other maker tags. I just say that because I found a similar pair, and found "Tom James" labels in the fabric that protects the back of the cuffs. Turns out H&S provide a ton of different fabrics for Tom James. I ended up flipping them on the Bay, not for big money, but enough to make it worthwhile.

    No cuffs- these are nice modern flat fronts. Only tag in the back pocket was this:

    [​IMG]


    I think they're the real deal. Same guy also donated a couple bespoke suits that had clear markings differentiating the fabric provider (which was not H&S) from the suitmaker. I didn't pick them up because the manufacturer was some local shop I didn't recognize, but they were similarly nice and modern, fully canvassed, two-button, flat front, working cuffs, double vented, one plain navy and one plain charcoal- shame the guy was shorter and wider or I would have picked them up for personal use. Wouldn't surprise me if a guy who would spring for those would also be willing to cough up for the real deal. Of course, I could be totally wrong- as I said in my first post, this is my first time dealing with anything even tangentially related to the Row.


    Tag under content tag does indeed say made in Vietnam. Perhaps I misspoke with "up the road"- the shirt isn't, but the company is. Or down the road or wherever Jeremyn Street is in relation to Savile Row. It's for personal use so it doesn't really matter to me, I'm more worried about whether any of my ties will go with it. You think you have too many ties, then you find a shirt like this...

    Polo knit looks really fake. Tag as well as the knit itself.

    I couldn't see the Polo Sport in the other. Could be real. Seems off to me but I'm not the authority.
