@Nataku what's the size of that EZ suit?
So today was half price day at the Dallas goodwills. Coats and sweaters have started hitting the racks but just a few as it was 93 and sunny today.
First something I have not yet encountered.
A very thin Burberry trench/raincoat called the traveller had belt and pouch. This fits me so for now I am keeping but if anyone needs to have it, pm me.
Next two sport Coats I love but too small. First never heard of maker, tagged made in Italy with great 3 roll 2, patch Pockets and awesome windowpane. No interior tags.
Maybe a small 41, if want to pm me. This killed me that I could not wear it.
Nice silk mix Sammy
A nice Alan Paine cashmere vest for me
Next is a nice Belvest suit. Not perfect, found two tiny holes so far but still nice. I love to see that Stanley Korshak tag.
So yesterday talk was about abboud and today I found this.
Is my first time seeing this label. Only the small interior tag if anyone can interpret. Feels real nice, pretty sure is cashmere. Maybe a cross between a sportscoat and a sweater? I am guessing 42short. This is available and another one I wish fit me.
Finally I found this reversible leather jacket.
So I am not really sure about this one. Tagged Bally but made in Italy. I though Bally made in Switzerland? Thin and light and tagged 44. Just a little big on me but I may keep. Leather and suede I assume. Maybe goat? Jacket almost looks new except zipper is missing the pull and the cuffs and waist (non leather parts) have some holes. If anyone can give me a little heads up I appreciate it. This can also be available if someone really likes it.
Finally a bunch of dollar halloween hats for my daughter.
I've got some tassel loafers marked Bally Switzerland, made in Italy. For whatever that's worth...
It it were anything other than plain cow leather (nappa, calf, goat etc), companies usually brag that up on their labels. If it's really soft, supple and buttery, I could see Bally using calf or nappa, but if it's a bit stiff / less pliable and not really smooth to the touch, maybe regular leather.
Size on that HT Jacket
Eu 52 L but measures like a US 40 L. So frustrated it doesn't fit true to size! If so it'd be in my closet.
Staple as fuck summer Zegna. Pretty recent.
Also, only Alara, but wooo Nordy Rack penny buys.
Decided to hit one more GW on my way home. These are all minty as hell. NA
Quick $1000 worth of ties... Noice!!
Rescued 2 kittens today.
One Su Misura Kiton shirt, and one tie + Etro paisley
Some minty (but dusty) Ferragamo
Been seeing, and passing up on a lot of Grayers, but they priced this cheaper than they do shirts, so wasn't going to pass.
Dunno what's up with the spoilers but I can't delete them.
Thrift fit from earlier. Messy day outside so the jacket was necessary.
Jacket: Theory+ double dry rain jacket(thrift prices)
Shirt: Save Khaki angora sweater(thrift prices)
Jeans: 3Sixteen st100x(from Spoo)
Shoes: Clarks desert boots(from Jebarne)
Just because Seattle is full of Crunchies who wear hoodies with shorts all winter, doesn't mean NOBODY ever wears suits. I even saw one today. He looked very dapper!
Yeah, they wore through sherlock.
Point missed. No one is interested in the orphan that you didn't pick up. Though I suppose that someone could have the pants, but that's rare and is usually the other way around.
I think he more meant that no one would be interested in a pinstriped Canali orphan in general. Orphans aren't very desirable(on here). I've sold a few on ebay tho but only Brioni or better >_<
