    Turned out to be Helmut Lang. No pants to be found though :( Can anyone help me figure out what vintage this is?

    This was a few weeks ago, but I finally got pictures for the Dean of Columbia Law School's cashmere smoking jacket:

    ... Which he had custom-made in 1962.

    Probably the nicest thing I've ever owned -- the workmanship on this is a little finer and more precise than the Anderson & Sheppard tweed I sent to Spoo a week or two ago, but I guess it's a dressier garment from a military tailor, so I guess being two blocks off of Savile Row isn't such a disaster.

    And was this wool/silk Belvest a good pickup? Is that a dumb question?

    eThrift $45, not sure what size though. Says 7 1/2 on the bottom of the inserts but no other printing. Since they are John Lobb I am assuming that this is UK sizing so ~8 US

    You're in Seattle, right? There's at least one Alden shop there -- Brick & Mortar. Maybe they'd even let you take a look at worn shell if you can't wait for the Knowledge Box (TM).

    That's why I picked it up – that and the side vents. Mixed in with lots of Canali Proposta-ish unvented dated stuff.

    I left a cashmere hopsack (Guabello cloth) 6x1 DB blazer with really padded shoulders, unvented back. Was that dumb? Didn't know if anybody on here would want it or if it would flip. Got three hours to go back for it.

    Some quick pics since I'm on the road. Passed through a tiny town in upstate NY today. Grabbed this for a buck. I've never picked up Helmut Lang before and I don't know much about it but it's a shirt with these weird straps on the back? Anyone know the deal? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Whoa, I'm off the board for a few hours at a hearing at the Courthouse and I click on the main page of SF and look for the Bragging thread and the last post is about BDSM. I know what that is and there is no way I'm clicking on that link!

    I am not sure if I am going to be able to sleep tonight. The company that does my favorite estate sales just let me know that they have a sale starting tomorrow morning at 8 am. The house is 11,000 sq ft and is full of wonderful items (according to my friend that runs it). Who has a house with 11,000 sq. ft. The average family in the USA has a home that is 2000 Sq. ft and I'm sure that most people in major cities have much smaller homes/apartments.


    When she goes out of her way to let me know about these sales, it is usually because they really are fantastic sales. The last couple of hers were HUGE sales that I bought LOTS of stuf. A lot of which I am still going through to sell, trade, keep, consign, . . .

    I don't know if estate sales count for Thriftening, but I sure am hoping for it to come my way. I usually get such a great deal at her sales, that they are thrift prices.
