    Interesting. I thrifted this exact coat (color and size) about 6 months ago. NWOT as well. I believe Klobber thrifted a tan version not too long ago as well. Who knew recent Zegna cashmere coats grew on thrift store trees!

    Ok, here is my first submission to the WAYWN Thrift edition. Be nice. Also excuse the crap pics and the wrinkles after a day at work.

    All thrifted :D

    SC: 100% flax Polo made in Italy
    Shirt: RLPL
    Pants: Cotton Zegna by Incotex
    Belt: Polo
    Shoes: AE Strawfut

    Awesome fits man. Interestingly, I received almost that exact jacket in the mail today (Italian made PRL 100% flax, 3/2, but in black) from another SFer. [​IMG]. Great look.

    BTW, dudes: I was talking with my neighbor the other day, who volunteers at the local. She says when they get overcoats and suits during the summer they just donate them on to GW and Sally -- sometimes just the jacket. I wonder whether that's another explanation for the orphan phenom.

    Forgot to bring my wallet when I went out tonight :brick:

    Had to leave behind:

    —RL Purple Label cords
    —Willis and Geiger khakis
    —Zegna twill pants
    —Coach wingtips
    —Jack Purcells, white leather, my size and lightly worn

    I'm especially bummed about missing out on the Purcells. They'd be a great spring/summer shoe.

    +1 - awesome finds darkmatter7!


    I seem to remember something about Sartoria... but I may be thinking of something different, like La Vera Sartoria. Check out the secrets to ID the maker thread yet for label comparisons? If they were just a bit bigger I'd be interested. :/ That's a really nice Hermes, too - heavy silk unless I miss my mark? Navy grenadine... wow. I saw a huge run of Paul Frederick ties recently but they were all made in China. :brick: Still checked the tags on every one just to be sure.

    Wow, a jacket like that is one of my all time personal grails for me to put in my closet... Zegna outerwear is underrated IMO. I have one of their tech jackets and it's really nice. Your other stuff is nice too - but I wanted to ask what the "shred marks" around the collar were - someone actually sliced it open or was it just excessive wear on the raised bump around the collar where fabric overlaps? :confused:


    Nice! I never see luggage that doesn't say Samsonite or American Traveler. :p I might have to see if some ties can make it into that box, I didn't think you usually looked at ties! :devil:

    Not what I'm saying at all. Around here, a suit is a suit is a suit is a suit--come fall, they put the flannels out next to the poplins, madras next to the Harris Tweed. Same thing with blazers/sport coats. If you're in need of wife beaters, t-shirts or super-crappy shorts, however, I'm your man. If you want damaged Brioni, I also find that--once in a blue moon.

    I think that PF tie is quite bragworthy 7 fold navy grenadine? Hell yeah, that is a grail tie.
