How awesome are these...
Can anybody decipher the second pair also made in france.
Alfred Dunhill Card holder, and its modern. I hate to let it go, but I got a ton of small accessories like this.
I found a Gucci tie with a original store tag still on it. Goes in my collection. I got More too....
Heres better pic's of one of the 800$ dollar peter max wrangler pairs I found. Even homie at F as in Frank vintage says "in all my digging I never found any Peter max wranglers" boy. I got two pair, stop playing.
I didn't even get to more recent finds yet fellas.
That reminds me, its time for its feeding.
If this is the shit you sell, I want to see the shit you keep.
is it raw? maybe!
if the color is very intense and uniform and it's scratchy and crisp, then it's most likely raw denim. with raw denim what you're feeling is the sizing - aka starch - that is applied to the warp yarns so that they can survive the tension and abrasion of the weaving process. most denim clothing is constructed of raw fabric and either sold that way or pre washed/faded etc as a finish.
but, some end consumers actually starch their denimz. people still do it but i think it's somewhat more common to see in vintage pieces. so it might just be a starched shacket. if there are fade lines, wash marks, etc but it's also stiff and scratchy then it's likely just been starched by the previous owner.
people used to do interesting things that you really don't see anymore. a pair of 70s redlines i sold had these creases ironed in at one point. even tho the creases weren't there, they had these hot fades running down the leg and they really showed off the twist. who creases denimz anymore lol?
That Dunhill card holder and wallets and shit are the type of shit I'm always looking for at thrifts for myself but never have any luck. Good finds!
I should get a backdrop. A few recent things.
BTW guy's im always interested in little tag's and papers from certain brands. There isn't much knowledge about the past of these items, and I want to eventually create a way I can share knowledge with folks, and im not going to try and capitalize on everything either. Thing's Im looking for are NOT just paper, People who were around to relate stories about the way brands existed could really help. Im looking for like people who are old enough to remember stores like Abercrombie, the gap, brook's brother's etc. Or even Movies or old show's that have stores in them or feature Items from designers prominently. There is a ton of neat stuff im finding out all the time about the past folks are really sleeping on. PLEASE, think of me if you see Canadian Hermes store in 90's documentary about counterfeit money for example. Department store stuff is ok too, if its real old.
Possible dumb question, mainline Loro piana cashmere/wool blazer, $54, kop?
Those are "JACOMO'S" homie. And I can't believe you aint knowing
Gonna say yes for mainline LP.
Wool/cashmere, mint condition, working cuffs, talked em down to $40 shipped
That's Dunhill for Baume & Mercier. Had one a while back before I swapped it out for a Smythson
The first and (possibly last) time I'll walk out with this brand in tow:
