    Some of those ties are filthy. This is one of the more tame ones.

    Pics as promised. Not sure if they're the same as above but they came out quite nice, IMO. They feel almost like slippers.

    Yeah, this one was quite a bit filthier. I can't imagine ever wearing it, as I really have no desire to get fired. Love their website, btw, where they compare their ties to Zegna and what-have-you.

    Now, what I want is a seven-fold pornographic tie.

    Picked up a cool vintage looking GR816 jacket, never heard of the brand but it's made.

    Spoo, I may need your assistance on this one:

    Picked up this hideous lime green sweater vest today. Gianni Versace Couture. Metal buttons with the Medusa head in the middle. Cashmere/Silk/Wool blend. Tagged a size 4 (?). Is this thing real or did I make a $5 donation?

    Secondly, I picked up this recent Norman Hilton sportcoat. It's the only recent Hilton piece I've seen, all the rest seem to be 20+ years old. This is really nice. Fully canvassed and a good amount of handwork.

    Also got a tan silk/linen blazer from Paul Stuart. Recent model; Stuart II. MOP buttons. Sadly, it has a few spots I need to try to remove. If that fails, it'll be returned. I also nabbed the nicest pair of Bills Khakis I've ever seen. Hunter green flat fronts. Feels like moleskin, pretty thick. Tagged a 37 waist. M2 model.

    Pal Zileri made in Italy Wool/Mohair overcoat. EU size 50. Raglan sleeve - made to be worn over a suit jacket. I'm willing to take offers on this one... it's a milk chocolate sort of colour. There are a couple small round inconspicuous blemishes (moths?) but they do not go through the fabric.

    Very ugly nice!!

    'tis the real deal.... I think. Ive only seen one or two with that kind of fabric content label - I'm guessing its on the side by the hips? Usually they are sewn to the GV label (where I can see some remnants of one being cut off, am I right?) but a select few have it like the one you have seen. It does not make it rarer, just a different factory produced them. The size tag that you refer to is located over the left shoulder on the seam? On the other side of the 4 should be a 40 or 42. Is that right? Let me know, but I would say it checks out. If you are going to list it, I would humbly suggest the title (now with 80 characters lol)
    "Vintage Gianni Versace Couture Cashmere Silk Sweater Cardigan Vest 4 $1K" or similar. Nice find.

    Found a lorenzini shirt today. I love the thick MOP buttons on these shirts.. Also found a zegna wool/silk 45/55% blend sport jacket that fits me well, too bad it didn't have a vent but for less than $10 I got it. Can anyone tell me when non vented stuff were in style?

    Pics to come

    I might be out of step, but there's nothing dreadfully wrong with unvented jackets, as long as you have a tiny bum.

    I've got some other things to attend to so unless I bump into you in the Goodwill, best of luck.
