    Second is definitely Isaia. Spoo, what label is the Isaia-made one. That lining sure is cool!

    I've heard of that label before but never seen any of their pieces. The stuff is quite pricey too!

    I know... I'm not really supposed to post stuff I don't know about and ask questions... but I really think I found some nice stuff. If anyone would like to provide me information about it... please do. I have tried looking all of these items up, and have gotten some information, but not enough.

    Paul Stuart shirt. Excellent condition. 16-33
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Hardy Amies Jacket. Excellent condition. Seems unworn to me (though I'm sure that isn't the case).

    Measurements:


    Chest 22
    Waist 21.5
    Shoulders 18
    Sleeve 26
    Length 32
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Hoxton Jacket. Again, seems unworn. Don't really know any information at all about this manufacturer.

    Measurements:


    Chest 20.5
    Waist 20
    Shoulder 17.5
    Sleeve 23
    Length 30
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Chatsworth Harris Tweed. Again, don't know anything about the manufacturer, but this is the nicest Harris Tweed I have ever found. It's even double vented.

    Measurements:


    Chest 22
    Waist 21
    Shoulder 20
    Sleeve 25
    Length 31
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Aldens in excellent condition. These are the ones I passed on earlier. Does anyone know anything about these?
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Battaglia Coat. Again, know nothing about the manufacturer. It just seemed really nice! Size 42
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'll edit with sizes!

    Oh, and a Ermenegildo Zegna shirt for myself...

    PM me what you need photoshoped.

    Just got back so no pictures till tomorrow, but 2nd ever thrifted Loro Piana item today [​IMG] The real deal made by Loro Piana not the fabric. Lime green 1/4" zip, but better then nothing. Also picked up a NWT (Nordstroms return label still attached to the Nudie label) pair of Nudie Jeans 28x34, pricey at $20 but figured it was easy money to flip.

    Nice score on the Paul Stuart shirt! Sea Island Cotton makes it a whole lot better!

    Battaglia is a high-end boutique in Beverly Hills. I found some insane Stefano Ricci silk shirts over the summer that originated from that store. From what I've heard, most of it is gaudy stuff for the filthy rich with a few toned down, wearable items mixed in. They sell house label stuff as well as other high-end lines as well. That was likely a $2k+ jacket.

    Spoo, I've seen this script before on a Cantarelli-made Facconable suit.

    Haha, I have a burgundy version of that tie and I've only worn it twice. Each time was a huge success though. People love it.

    Today was a good day, cue Ice Cube. Half off all of these items at Goodwill and ARC.

    Immaculate Aquascutum for Neiman Marcus navy trench, with bonus leather gloves in the pockets! 40R
    Two Oxxford SC, possibly orphaned. One is very recent in brown 44L and the other is from the early 80s in gray, no size marked.
    Harris Tweed SC for a potential trade. No size marked, but likely a 44 or 46
    Tyrwhitt Casual shirt in dark pink. Large
    Robert Graham shirt that I left behind three visits ago and found again today.
    Ancient Armani sweater to tear down and re-knit
    Incredible 80% Cashmere/20% silk V-neck from some store in Beverly Hills, given to GF.

    The Aquascutum and Oxxford stuff appeared one after the other. I was really skeptical when I walked into this Goodwill as all of the remotely nice shoes were marked at $30-50, some of which even had visible HOLES. Good thing I soldiered on. The previous stop was a Savers where I waffled on an $8 Hilditch and Key shirt...

    Pictures upon request.
