• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I'm the worst at guess the maker, so this is coming like two months late, but the bandana shorts are Sophnet (somebody came pretty close with Soullive). Riri zip, d-rings, freakin awesome.

I usually avoid half off days like the plague, but other errands of acquisition (more on that later) took me close to a store I don't hit often enough. Mostly fodder at ~2.50 ppu.
1279228

But this brought the trip from "worth it" to righteous, and neatly illustrates the manifold dangers of reading too many @dieworkwear articles glorifying the balmacaan:
1279230

From the women's coat section for all of twelve bucks. Belted, covert closure, chunky brown donegal herringbone fabric. The works.
1279232

Considered leaving for all of half a second, but shiiit it fits like it was made for me.
1279237

Made by ??? for Paul Jardine, presumably a now defunct menswear boutique. Love that tweedy flecking. The Crookhorn Davis belt was another keeper. I don't think the brand is a thread first, but burled croc (?) is new to me - pics don't do it justice at all.
1279238

And speaking of baller jackets, here's another guess the maker:
1279242

Hint- reasonably good brand but often a pass. Patina, fit, and styling on this one were too good. Reveal won't take months this time, promise.

I find it hilarious that three (four?) of us were in a pretty enclosed space yesterday, just minding our own business, sorting through stained Kiton ties and ogling gator shoes.
You checked out right in front of me. I was the guy standing behind you with the "How did I overlook the shell?" look on his face. One of my favorite purchases yesterday was the Zilli belt. I thought it was just a suede case when I picked it up. It wasn't priced. I asked the lady in the room. She left with it, then came back and gave it to me... marked $20. SOLD!

they might call it curly or quilted looks like something taylor would make
Oh, it is definitely not.

Those are laminates. Like a plywood, not a solid wood. Nothing wrong with it and if it plays good it's fine, but it's a chinese plywood guitar, you can get them for $200-250 on reverb with a case, and acoustically they sound about like you'd expect from a guitar made of plywood that only costs $250 with a case. They're supposed to be OK for a cheap guitar plugged in, but it's really just a fancy looking beginner's guitar.

I guess these problems are old news to the flippers on here. It appears eBay is finally commenting on the problems.

Thank you for sharing that. Not because of the article, but because the website is like falling through a time portal and waking up in the days when we still called it Cyberspace or the World Wide Web...

Brag and a couple kop/no kop questions

Some southern gentleman with a pretty TRAD style donated a bunch of suits.

So, I found three Brooks Brothers SACK suits (3/2) and they are 3 piece and 41R

All three had the hangers and (miraculously) I managed to sweet talk the old lady cashier to let me keep them.

I’m also pretty excited about finding this:

CE4A4748-FE13-4B3C-B95E-01E7D41BD0D4.jpeg

The donegal is a 40R.

I know these aren’t Tom Ford Gators. But, I never find real sack suits. In fact I have never found one in my size EVER even new.

I also found 4-5 more 3/2 Sack Suits from what I’m guessing is a Local independent store.

These are nice quality fabrics at least as nice as BB. They may very well be made by somebody like Southwick

So, I passed on all of them. They $12 (for the suits).

Here’s one:

There were also 4-5 Seersucker and Pincird suits from the same store in Blue, yellowish, gray and tan.

I also passed on two Minty J. Crew Ludlow in 36S one was tan seersucker and the other was sort of a tweedy tan.

I really loved this Southwick. But passed on it for $10

So, should I go back for the Indy store 3/2 sacks? They were all around size 41-42. I’m not going to sell these myself. They will be consignments or stuff to trade.
