    Corneliani sport coat. Maybe an orphan from a suit? I could not find the pants but I get bored quickly looking at pant racks...

    Anyway the solid gray can be worn with odd pants I think.

    Size 52R... My size so I'll keep it for now.

    Only small defect is the stitching at the left shoulder is slightly loose. Barely noticeable really.

    Couple finds from today:

    This thing is a lot cooler than typical LL Bean. Very heavy belted trench, made in USA, zip-in liner and a cool plaid lining on the outer shell. In extremely good condition save for a spot that needs a dry cleaning. They threw in the cedar hanger for free.

    The staple of staples when it comes to linen shirts. Wrinkled of course but looks like it hardly saw any wear at all, maybe just one or two wears.

    Font looks off to me and looks pretty fake but am no expert. Will defer to anyone else.

    Killed it today, completely not clothing related though - if we have any fly fishing guru's, please PM me - trying to get more info/values of the more obscure ones below:

    Couple of them date back to the late 1940s, and in there is an impregnated bamboo rod from Orvis, Hardy's, Mills & Sons, A&F, Phillipson, etc.

    Saw this awesome Hugo Boss brown leather jacket at an outlet. My concern is that the leather (goat), which probably isn't the highest quality, will bleed onto my clothing/leather car seats if the jacket gets damp or wet. Have any of you experienced this? I haven't owned a leather jacket in a very long time.

    Not Where but When
    ^^^ i've had the insides of my shoes stain my socks and feet, but that's the roughout unfinished side, after hiking, etc...

    i've never once considered a jacket's shell staining my couch, etc... i expect they would be finished in such a way as to prevent dye loss, in fact it's probably more likely for a jacket to pick up dyes from other places

    if that jacket is a very very good price i'd try it, and if you like wearing leather i'd encourage you to go find a better jacket. cheers!

    It's $299, which is $100 more than what I would consider to be a good price for this jacket (personal wear, obviously). I'm not on the hunt for a leather jacket, this one just happened to fit like a glove and had a few features I liked.
