    If you post the Union label on www.thefedoralounge.com, I'm sure someone will be able to give you the age range.

    Just left a local thrift store in despair. I found about 15 to 20 bespoke garments, mostly from huntsman and a local cleveland tailor i didnt know, but all in pretty big sizes and they seemed to be cut for a very portly gentleman (large pants and big waists on the jackets).
    I did a search for his name and he was a rheumatologist from Cleveland.
    The garments dated back to 71 at the earliest and the mid 2000s at the latest. Guy had some good taste and one of my favorite suits was a three piece grey flannel with peak lapels. I left everything there :(

    I was at a large mom n pop thrift store and a guy walked up and took this off and hung it back up. I snapped it up. It's a light brown wool herringbone db overcoat with some men's store label but no other identifying brands. Me no care.

    Can you dig my lapels?

    Oh yeah. The Ray-Ban 4026 "Shots" were $7 from another store close by.

    Anyone know how to tell if a Prada jacket is real or not? I found this a while back at a thrift store and if its real I would like to try and sell it.

    If someone wants them, I can go back and get 'em, but they wanted $40-$50 a piece for them and I don't want to be saddled with like $500 in old suits :p

    Dear Dig, What a beautiful overcoat! You might want to have its sleeves let down enough to cover the shirt sleeve.

    Need closer up pictures of tags. So far it checks out, but I have a small doubt due to TG 50 on the plastic tag inside. Closer up will give the answer.

    I've been working quite a bit lately, so I haven't had time to post any of my finds. Hope the autumn season has treated all of you gents well.

    All the things below are up for sale/trade. Thought I'd offer them here before BS/eBay. PM me with any interest/offers (please ensure your offer is a fair one).
