    First for me, and hopefully last: piss stain on the bottom of an Ascot Chang shirt.

    Anyone ever see this on a Brioni tie before?

    I think someone dumped their old tie collection. Found a bunch of mostly older Brioni ties and some others mixed in. Is this Gucci real or fake?

    All the votes are in and I went back and got the Luciano Moresco jacket.The sold listings were all over the place, but it fits and it was 8$ not 15$. The irony is it is a lot like a jacket I bought in Florence a few years ago while standing in line at the Galleria dell'Accademia to see some sculpture. Literally walked in put it on,paid,walked out and the line had not moved.

    Recent finds... Peccary gloves [​IMG] [​IMG] Really nice vintage overcoat. I'm pretty sure it's NOS, looked up the tailor and his wife just died in September in her '80s. I'm assuming the kids cleaned out the house. [​IMG] Grabbed this from the German version of Linda. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Weird one. L.O.G.G. is an H&M name that I see all of the time. This is a really nice waxed jacket that was made in England. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    One more... Tagged XL, but armpit to armpit is 62cm/ca. 24.4in. Not women's, but doesn't that seem smaller than XL? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Really? It gives me the impression of being cheap and low quality...plus there's a lot going on in it.

    So about a week ago I mentioned passing up a horsehide jacket. My senses got the better of me and I gave the consignment store clerk a call, and we agreed to do a trade. I traded a thrifted item so I'm not sure if this checks out with the thrift arbiters.

    What I think is a pre-war front quarter horsehide (label and crown zipper as evidence)

    This jacket ended up drinking the whole bottle, with healthy seconds of Lexol on the really stiff areas.

    Couldn't be happier with this jacket.
