    Speaking about Paul Smith.

    A little while ago I found a NWT PS sport coat. I posted a few pictures, but now that I'm going back to it to post it on ebay, I'm seeing many cool details I missed when i picked it up.
    But now I'm looking at ebay past auctions and there is not that many that resemble my blazer. I'm a bit clueless about estimating a reasonable price on this thing.




    it's a Made in Belgium, 2 buttons, 2 Patch pockets, double vent sport coat. Color is very dark navy (maybe black?), Size S
    half-lined,
    surgeon cuffs (1 of the 4 buttons in each sleeve is different from the others),
    3 different lining colors(gold, emerald & sapphire tones) + pocket lining in silk
    2 small connecting pieces in a different fabric color at the back of the collar

    Can't seem to find any reference online on this model. And in general no "made in belgium" PS that I can find. :bored:

    EDIT: I can actually see the initial sticker under the tag with model N# & Size.
    Initial retail price seems to be $1,365.

    Thank you. Caught that coming out on the rack and was praying it wasn't Christian Dior Monseiur. LOL. Nicest surprise was to find that it was lambskin. Even nicer than that, the free BG Nappa/cashmere gloves in the pockets when I got home.


    Im pretty sure thats the new/reproduction cursive script label, doesn't look like the ones Ive seen on the really older stuff. I could be wrong though.


    Right! Ive been looking for creed for years, was thrilled to find this. too bad its just not a dedicated mens scent, even though the rose is quite nice.

    Funny, I found some awesome cashmere lined leather gloves in the pockets of a BB overcoat I found. Damn, lambskin too. What do you think, 70s, 80s?
