Too small for me, but I would love to see pictures!
A thrift follow up. I thrifted this Bally made in Italy reversible A-1 blouson some months back. The knits were riddled with holes, and had to be replaced. I finally took it in to get it repaired and cleaned to Arrow Fabricare, a local leather specialist with a national reputation. I picked it up today, and am quite happy with it. An equivalent jacket would retail for $2000.
Pictured is the suede side, which is how I'll wear it.
Is it a fabric tear (leave it), or a torn seam (no big deal)?
Alan, that looks SIIIICK!!
I overlooked that part. All I saw was Medusa.
I would find a way to rock that shit with reckless abandon. Women's jacket? Don't even care.
Wow. Nice jacket. Looks good on you.
went to my local goodwill to check out what I could find. picked up some decent dress shirts, one by brooks brothers and two by j.crew. 5.99 each and then found this great suit, for 24.99. blazer fits perfect, pants look like clown pants, 36" waist with 20" pant opening, at the bottom!!
added a picture of me wearing the pants
At least you bought enough material to find a tailor to make pants for you to go with the suit!
Those pants are classic!
Alan: cool jacket. I have a similar bally light brown suede bomber if you want it. $30, I have it still, gotta check. Think size 40. Might have got rid of it, but think I still have it around here somewhere.
Man, in the UK all we have is charity shops and TK Maxx.
TK Maxx can be good now and then, but it's rare to find something in the charity shops
I believe it is a seam tear...I'll let it go one more round and hopefully the white tags will be on sale next time I stop by!
Thanks, and yes, I might be interested if you still have it.
What's the size on those suede Nettletons you found? Great shoes!
First time I feel justified using an emoticon on this board:
Alan, nice find on the jacket. That is not something you see every day.
