Thread's on fire... send some of that back to NY!
U guys didnt think i would forget to post one of these did you...
Pimpin' ain't easy, bit it'll be a lot less difficult now that you have the right jacket.
Ugh, tell me about it! I was about to say the same thing -- I fell in love with the First Wave station when I had to rent a car this summer; apparently my car was bought just before they began sticking that greatness into every radio.
(You're a long way from Long Island, btw. Your 80s must have been awesome )
Both of those should be wins...
On the cuff damage... The trim on Snap-T's is a lycra material. If the jackets are dried too hot, that is the first part to go bad. Those look like they may have gotten heated up something fierce... They're supposed to dry on the lowest setting (or drip dried on a line, of course). Normal wear on them is just varying levels of pilling.
I assume you checked the inside of the pocket on the first one? If your mannequin form is similarly sized to mine, that's a medium. If you give me to the p2p measurement, I can tell you what size... What I don't know is the year it is from. Definitely a Snap-T, though I cannot recall when the reversible ones were out.
The second jacket is a women's Downtown Down jacket from Fall 2014. Google the style # (STY#####FA14) minus the FA14 part, which tells you it is from Fall 2014. That should be worth a few bucks to someone...
did someone say snap-t?
I'd conjure up @barrelntrigger, and scream BRODDDEEEEEEEEETTZZZ!!!!, but I have four right now.
Didn't pick up that much today, just wanted to post a couple of the things I copped today. Will post the rest tomorrow.
Lanvin highs. Saks Off Fifth price fuck up. Picked up for $60 NWOB in my size. Grail acquired!
Nike Air Royal Harris Tweeds. Size 8.5. Available.
In the field. Are suits used in a movie a thing? Three button hugo boss orphan with a martin Scorsese/movie on tag
I know those are Hugo Boss Models, but you mean it actually has the movie on the tag?
That's the name of the model of the jacket. Wasn't used in a scorcese movie, most likely. Hugo Boss does this with their jackets (eg: another jacket model is called the Pasolini, named after Pier Pasolini).
Thanks a million! I noticed another one with Poseidon on it so i was wondering lol. BTW i found my first Kiton next to it. Orphan, cashmere, perfect except for small hole on back. It has a nice windowpane pattern so im gonna use it as a SC. Thanks again
Definitely was in someone's wake in NYC this morning...but thanks to the thread bro who gave me a recommendation for general area to hit. It has been a good couple of days.
