    Nat Nast is pretty meh. I love the vintage styling but the quality isn't really there. I'd put them on par with Bugatchi Uomo (The Robert Graham imposter) in terms of quality and retail price. I see them at Nordstrom Rack all the time.

    Really? I sold a bunch of Harris Tweeds and only got $20-30 per. Not horrible but if you have a secret for getting $40 I'd love to hear it.

    Good point.


    I grabbed it to see if it's fixable. It was $18. Worth a shot I suppose.

    Stopped by Marshall's to see if any good stuff had made its way here... Not much. The best thing in suits was Theory, originally retailing at $895 and marked down to $99. Absolutely nothing in ties. The only decent thing in outerwear was a 100% cashmere Polo RL scarf. The best thing in sweaters was some 100% cashmere Polo RL sweaters at $99. I was surprised in shirts to find a BUNCH of Brooks Brothers oxfords at $39.99 each. I was even more surprised when I saw the Kiton and 3 Brioni's, one of which was a very nice tuxedo shirt, all at $129.99. Didn't pick anything up.

    On my way home from work:

    HF charcoal pinstripe 48L.

    HF SC (haven't measured, but seems to be a 48L as well)

    PRL tie that I couldn't pass up, but can't imagine I'll wear.

    Florsheim Royal Imperials with some scuffing and heel damage. They fit me well, though, and could prove to be nice beaters. Can anyone tell me more about them? They don't seem to match any others I've searched (on SF and Google) and the serial numbers and size are completely worn off.

    Didn't find much tonight. Got a pint glass for myself and a nice Pendleton overcoat in my dad's size. I also saw a gigantic Hickey Freeman Sport cardigan. It was in great condition, but the body and sleeves were so damn long I could only imagine what kind of person would be able to wear it. I didn't think to take a picture but I won't be surprised if it's still there the next time I am.

    Now you got me all worried so I went back to check my sold list, $42, $62, $60, $55, $70 & $87. Thats not net profit, but what they sold for (not including shipping, before ebay and paypal fees were taken out)... Make sure they are nice desirable colors and sizes, in good condition take good pictures and let them sit on ebay till you get a good offer.

    If the HF Suit is heavier wool I'm interested in seeing the measurements. I'm looking to add a heavy wool suit for the winter.

    I actually saw one the other day at some "antique mall/ junk" store. One of the sellers had some clothing and the nicest suit was Hickey Freeman Bespoke. It didn't fit me so I left it but I was curious b/c I had never seen that label "bespoke" before w/ HF. Anyone know about this?
