    Is anyone here familiar with an Asian brand of clothing that uses paisleys as a label? I found an interesting casual blazer/jacket, unstructured, high armholes and a slim fit. It fits well so it was a no-brainer, but all labels are in Korean ... Japanese? I have no idea.

    Also - Nataku, you're 1 post shy of 2,000 posts in this thread

    Few things left behind:

    First Corneliani tie, pattern was a bit much and it had a little wear on edge:

    English Laundry shirts X3, all wild patterns:

    And finally, I guess somebody threw in the towel and is going to vote for Mitt:

    But more importantly, I don't know a clothing label that uses pailseys, but Timothy Everest of Savile Row uses a small patch of floral fabric for their labels sometimes. Here's a quick picture as an example. I have several shirts that have this as their only label. My guess is that they're from a bespoke tailor as I know another tailor who simply uses a pattered label as his label. No text or anything. I think his was striped though.

    Things I kept:

    NWT Hickey Freeman 100% cotton SC, single vent, pattern caught my eye, measured the chest at 20", too small for me, but thought someone here might be interested, then I saw the new tags and grabbed:

    Then when I was home, saw the size:

    With a shirt like that, I'm sure the last person they are voting for is Mitt....

    Never made a bragging post on here but I felt like I had a decent day.


    I'm pretty new to thrifting and attempting to improve my wardrobe in general and all of these things are available as they don't fit.


    Kiton linen SC - navy, single vent, working cuffs. size 54


    Kiton linen dinner jacket(i think?) - black, double vent. got home and noticed 1 small hole in sleeve and missing button on cuff


    Kiton 100% cashmere SC - double vent, working cuffs. size 53


    Hickey Freeman Loro Piana zelander suit - size 43r. beautiful charcoal gray with a faint blue check pattern overlay.


    not pictured: woolrich flannel, 2x lands end worsted wool pants, brooks brothers staples. these things actually fit but nothing too exciting.


    total spent for everything: $8


    if you feel the jackets are orphans then by all means feel free to correct me and apologies for the bad pictures ahead of time. again, everything is available!
