A good tailor should be able to do some work with slimming the trousers.
My tailor is about Brianpore's size, so there is no liklihood of finding much for him.
I'm going to rock these either way, but can someone confirm they are actually pants (slacks) and not the bottom half of a suit?
Will post all deets tonight, with the spectacular photo gallery. Got home late last night and I was to tired to get a tailor's tape in action.
The Hick's is way small on me (I'm a 46R) - can't actually put it on at all. Would guess between 38-42.
The Duffle fits a little snug in the arms...in a t-shirt. I would guess an L- XL possible a 44 or so? No idea how these are sized. Were these meant to be worn over a jacket like a top coat? I guess I would assume probably over a sweater or something.
Pics and deets please!
Wow... Amazing. That's a grail find for outerwear addicts.
Duffle sounds like it may fit me, I'm interested if you don't plan to keep it. As far as wearing it, yeah, I thought it was meant to be worn as a top coat...
BB Linen....I'll be posting the info on the BB around 8 or so tonight. You will have first choice on this one.
Duffle....Thanks, I didn't even know what the heck it was, but it was so well made and different, I just couldnt leave it.
Ok. If that's the case then it is probably way too small for me too. I wouldn't be able to wear anything more than a thin shirt under it comfortably. I'm too hot blooded for a coat this warm anyway.
Yeah, but has that guy ever found a Christian Dior tie? I don't think so...
Know who else thrifts in this area?
WHY COULDN'T I FIND THAT INSTEAD? Thrifting gods have smited me.
Would you have known to even buy it? I dont look at artwork.
Haha, not that I know much about artwork at all but I do look at it and pick up a few pieces here and there. Was mostly a joking post but it would've been fuck-awesome to find...
We'll all be glancing over there now.
Here are the basic points to remember (this from a conversation once with an art professor and an art historian I go to church with):
1. anything that is not original is not going to be worth much, so skip over the prints. They would both rather decorate their homes with originals that have no monetary value by unknowns than with high quality prints of the masters.
2. Most of the original stuff you find will be pretty obviously junk, amateur, high school art class work, somebody's grandma.
3. Occasionally you'll find something that isn't eliminated by these two criteria. At that point, you're on your own. The iphone won't even help you on really old stuff, because signing the painting wasn't SOP until I think the 19th century. You'll just have to decide if you want to risk it.
Will keep this in mind and start hitting up the art section. Screw Kiton, I want a Rembrandt.
