    Wasn't there a thread recently about someone looking for a pic of a horizontally striped suit? I wasn't sure anyone would ever find one, but lo and beholdwe've got a jacket.

    I'll bet someone at the Fedora Lounge would go for number three [​IMG] I'm surprised Abboud would come up with any of that stuff. He's usually a little more conservative then that.

    These must be from the time period when Abboud was not in charge of the designs bearing his name...right? Please tell me this is so.

    I mean, the guy used to work at Louis, Boston, then he went to Ralph Lauren. His personal taste is way above these abominations.

    Well, the seller's name is certainly appropriate.  Only "Prime Time" (or someone who wants to dress like him) would buy these items.

    That first jacket reminds me of a horse blanket.

    The first one reminds me of what is often worn in my neck of the woods during our nine month winter: a Hudson's Bay Point Blanket Coat [​IMG] And that second one would be right at home in the closet of an old CBS sports guy: Heywood Hale Broun [​IMG] (Be careful with comments about the Hudson's Bay coat; my wife wears one quite nicely) Â [​IMG]
