    haha Just kidding its a Q customs suit from 2009.. fits me perfectly made of Loro Piana all season fabric, fully canvassed, picked stiching, dual vented, trousers reinforced too, surgeons cuffs. based on site 2x suits with 2x shirts / 2 ties is $5500 so basically this is around a $2.5k suit?

    Pants Kiton/RL cotton/RL wool/Armani Collezioni/ (kiton and Armani both flat front/RLs are Single pleated.

    Kiton might be for sale/trade. Interested in oxxford/zegna level blazers recent in 40-42L.

    2x shirts BB makers/Ben sherman

    Not pictured dunhill tie (will provide pics to this later and check if it is wearable) :p

    everything today $43

    Good find - you are lucky to find flat front pants in thrift stores. Post sizes of all things you want to flip.

    They were all thrift store finds. Goodwill, Purple Label suit was at a salvation for $14.00, flip it for $366. I paid $17 a piece for the Oxxfords. I just mention my top favorites for that week. I got Lubiam, Faconnable tailor, J. Press, etc.. I spend about $600 that week

    Whoops. Meant to give you props for the quote below. I know if I were a homeless guy (and didn't know anything about clothes), I'd prefer a Eddie Bauer down parka over a Brioni rain coat.




    Good luck! Hope they're still there!


    Nice score on the RRL! Looks like some nice outerwear is finally popping out of the woodwork around these parts!


    Jeez! Where the hell is this from? SF Castaway Island?!?



    :laugh:

    You actually had me going there. That does have the TF styling cues. Nice score on the Kiton trousers too, especially with them being flat front!

    Ooofffff, what a shame they were not at least 31 or 32 length. Not for me, but a 29" inseam would be a pain in the ass to sell.
    Nothing wrong with the shirts, price is of course everything ;)


    Old diffusion line of YSL, stopped sometime around 2001/2 if memory serves me right. Quality sucked, but some of the Suits, Sport Coats, Jackets, and wool / cashmere coats Made in Italy were decent quality. YSL Rive Gauche was always their top line.

    For reference, think YSL Rive Gauche and Dior Homme as being on the same page.
    Think YSL Pour Homme and Dior Monsieur as being on the same page.
    One is exclusive and well styled / well made / well tailored, the other was mass market stuff. Not all Pour Homme or Monsieur was bad though, think Ralph Lauren Polo as an example. Lots of bad, but some good.

    I think Pour Homme still exists as a fragrance brand, but the clothing has been gone 10 years plus.

    I seldom go through the pants, they are a pain.. lol.. but I did today because there were racks of them lined up. Glad I did. I'm just glad that they are not like 44 waist/29 that would be even worse. :p

    Just noticed two things I didn't before on the RRL
    1) it appears to be NWOT, pockets and vent are still sewn
    2) it's missing 1 of the buttons on the sleeve and has no extra buttons :brick:
