    Are Ledbury shirts decent? This is a first for me in many years of thrifting... I know they advertise on SF.

    Hey Nataku, just like Brianpore did the super helpful roundup of manufacturers' labels, you should do a similar roundup of which (if any) camo patterns are desirable and valuable. I know you've mentioned one or two before, and I always wonder when I'm in a militaria-type store.

    I found probably the strangest tie I've ever seen today. What appeared to be a simple black silk tie from Liberty of London, given the dimensions (2.5" wide), I'd estimate it at 1960s. Nothing really special until I turned it over and found this:

    [​IMG]

    A spider, a fscking SPIDER FFS. Crafted in Swavorski crystals and black beads.

    I first thought that someone may have bought the tie and then applied their personal design but looking at the back of the blade:

    [​IMG]

    It appears to me that this was sold as seen. I'm still asking myself why though

    Going off-topic here.... but does anyone know about Soviet Union era cameras?

    Picked this up because... well... because it's kind of cool. No idea if it works.

    Thanks! Agreed on the wash...or is it the DRY? I think the P.O. tossed it into the drier regularly. Oh well.

    Thanks for the thumb, Noob!

    Just dropped a fat load at the tailor expect some thrift fits in a couple weeks. It was my largest tailoring bill ever but it was worth it since we talked about super future and Japanese proxies and he showed me some vintage A2 leather jackets he is repairing

    Super duper tame, from what I hear, by "overseas" standards. Don't they have vending machines with used undies? Thrift fit. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Etro CT slim non-iron Drakes cashmere Unknown raw silk hand rolled Trafalgar suede belt Isaia aquachino* Panthy wool blend Bally suede *Technically, following this picture, I changed the trou because I realized these don't fit me well, and I'll be parting with them soon. But what I did wear were Borrellis in the same color and material, so I feel like it counts.
    Hit a few stores. Found the good Marshalls. Tons of Versace, Zegna, and other stuff. All massively overpriced. Is Costumes Nasionales any good? They had a decent silk knit crunchy tie. Did hit a few more stores. Borrelli shirt, Brioni tie and a handful of Paul Stuart custom made tweeds. No pics of those, but will be posting the highlights from the past few weeks later tonight.

    Hey.. picked up 3 staple bespoke suits made last year by Astor & Black. Really nice material and handiwork - working cuffs, 2 vent "belt", etc.... ​
    Not many on ebay for history - but there appear to be a number of threads about them on here. Looking forward to reading about it.​

    Yup. Definitely an automatic buy for me unless way overpriced.

    1ofTheCoolKids is a super cool dude. So shout out to him. He had extra room in his flatrate box so he just threw in two extra pairs of shoes without telling me [​IMG]

    I have a few things I've picked up lately to share.

    Bobby Jones alligator skin. N/A
    [​IMG]

    Hanover Longwings. Barely worn. US made and with Goodyear welt. Stretched them a little bit and they fit great so N/A

    Old AE Strands but really taken care of. Resoled and reheeled. 13AAA so definitely available.
    [​IMG]

    Breuer Tie. Maybe available.
    [​IMG]

    BB madras patchwork. Large so available.
    [​IMG]



    NWT women's Jcrew matchstick jeans. Given to my girlfriend's little sister. Mad brownie points for that one.
    [​IMG]



    Here's an awkward thrift fit. I'm at the Louvre in Paris. I didn't actually go in because it was the end of my trip and I had only enough money for food. I'm also wearing a shirt from Nataku so that's pretty cool.


    [​IMG]
    BR Sweater Thrifted
    William Huang Shirt from Nataku (It could have also been Beck now that I think about it.)
    Levi's Selvedge Discount Store
    Onitsuka Tigers Thrifted
    North Face Gifted

    Her Jacket is thrifted too though I don't know what brand.

    One find today: a Polo madras patchwork. At XXL, it is slightly big for my 44-46R frame. If any big boy trads are in the market for such a garment, holler.

    Damn...ever since Luxe Swap started listing ties photographed like Betty Page, these newfangled silky contortions have gotten increasingly out of hand.

    Definitely. Anyone know of how or where I could do something like this? I'm iffy on starting a thread on here because it doesn't really have much to do with M/C. I kind of lost touch with programs like Excel and such in the late 90's so I have no clue how to use them now. Is there like a test section I can post it to on here and just link it to my signature?
    :slayer: That tie is crazy! Wow!
    Wow! Tons of great stuff there! That LP vest is killer. Pretty sure CIT is made by CIT S.P.A. They make many Italian designer shirts including Bagutta. I've seen a bunch of lesser-known Euro labels sold on Yoox made by CIT S.P.A. It seems they've made their own line of shirts now, though. It's pretty nice stuff. More about CIT here: http://www.e-pitti.com/en/exhibitors/bagutta.html
