    Picked up a few things in my first trip in over 2 weeks [​IMG]

    Anyone know how to better date this Paul Stuart Suit?? (Has the 3 names, so is more recent I think??)

    I don't know about dating, but that looks like a Samuelsohn tag to me. <3 Sammy stuff, great solid baseline for a closet.

    No expert, but my super recent one from Nataku's crazy PS haul awhile back looks a bit different...more rectangular and stitched on with light fabric, but otherwise has the same 3 names. No materials tag in my to compare with. Nataku might be the man to ask on that.

    EDIT: And yes, agreed on Samuelsohn.

    Not sure if this is much indication, but if you look at the font style and design of the two labels, it apears to be the same (or at least very similar). This is from little older Samuelsohn suit.

    Thanks for the info on the Paul Stuart. Also picked up this not recent but not old Hickey Freeman Tux (came with Cumberbund and suspenders also), a Ricci Tie and my first Truzzi shirt with HUGE buttons [​IMG]

    Oh how I missed thrifting!

    Not much, but I picked up a nice Glen plaid jacket with a subtle red overcheck, that fits quite well. From a local tailor of Italian cloth, fully canvassed. Wore it immediately.

    Anyone know about I. Magnin? Found a light grey glen plaid suit in 40r that I believe is fully canvassed, but passed because I couldn't find any info. Thinking about going back and picking it up for myself...

    I. Magnin was a high-end store competing with NM and Saks, I think mostly (only?) on the West Coast. I've only ever seen a tiny number of items from them here in Ohio, so that says something about the geographic distribution.

    I don't know if they had high-end makers identifiable by interior labels or not, but it might be worth checking out. If you like it, it's probably pretty good stuff.

    Interesting - where are the socks from? Don't ask, but I've been looking for some interesting stuff that's not argyle.
