    I know right? Those pics and description comments aren't exactly going to instill riotous activity on that suit.

    I believe BB's parent company bought Southwick a few years back, from what I understand they manufacture the BB lines that are Made in the US for them now (as well as still under the Southwick name).
    (So you hit the nail on the head since they now make most of the "mainline". [​IMG])

    I think Southwick is definitely under-rated, esp. the newer stuff, thought some of the older stuff can look pretty dated, as can most brands.

    Based solely on the pictures, that's hard to say, they could be corfam. A man-made material which acts similarly to Shell. I find it unusual for Shell Cordovan shoes to have synthetic soles. They look a bit cheapish, The selling price is probably about 100 too high in my opinion. There is no pic that at least shows they are leather, most leather shoes will have a stamp on them indicating this. IMHO, Definitely don't look to be the quality of Florsheim and Hanover as seller stated. All this based on photos, so I could be wrong.

    BTW , judging from the pics, seller is on SF.

    He had these on the ebay thread a week ago.

    Went at lunch. So first some stuff I passed on... Anyone heard of Equilibrio? There were a couple of these NWOT shirts and they actually seem to do okay on the 'Bay but I didn't kop because they didn't seem special:

    [​IMG]

    Also passed on this Bullock & Jones shirt 'cause it was too big for me and they don't seem to do well on the 'Bay? Strangely although it looks like linen it's 80% cotton, 20% polyester? [​IMG]

    The only thing I picked up today was this SWEET NWT Hickey Freeman wool duck tie

    [​IMG]

    Been thinking about picking one of these up for the fall, now I don't have to.

    Wow, I'm always kind of confused with Oxxfords as they all seem to have old labels to me so I have to go by quality, and while this one was definitely quality, I couldn't really ascertain the date. If nothing else i'll go back and check later if it's still there. And +1 on that with the Bonobos/Brioni as well. Probably will have to be tomorrow though, firm event later.

    Made a quick stop off at lunch, spotted this cool looking casual SC- patch pockets, partially lined, double vented-

    Then looked at the label:

    [​IMG]


    Wasnt expecting that- my first Brioni jacket find of any type, its a cotton/linen blend. Fits pretty well (I think its actually a tagged XL), keeping for now.
    (Sorry for crappy pics, taken from my phone)

    Nothing special today. Went back and picked up those Peal & Co for BB shoes. Black pebble grain oxfords w/ Dainite rubber soles. Overall nice shape. Size 9 D.
    Sorry for the awful pictures. Still trying to figure the new camera out. Can anyone ID the maker (I know the pic isn't the best)?

    Passed on a ton of Tom James suits, tweeds, and shirts today. Thought I had a BB tuxedo in my size, but the pants were no where to be found. Everything below is unavailable.

    BB silk suspenders. I currently have no use for these, but I'm keeping them since they're my first pair and a staple color.

    BB partially lined sport coat/raincoat? What's the proper term for this? I'm pretty sure the fabric is a cotton blend. I plan on rocking this fall & spring over a sweater and OCBD.
