    I do indeed. This was actually my first post on Style Forum :teach: The coat only appeared in the pilot. Afterwards, they had to change costume designers; Martin Freeman now wears a Haversack shooting-style jacket in every episode (and sometimes, a waxed Barbour, as well). Side note: the costume designers on that show do such an amazing job of using wardrobe to accentuate the characters.

    Bloomingdales Italian Alligator Calfskin belt. Tits! Too bad it's a small, going to see if it fits my wife, otherwise might have to take it to the leathersmith.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Handrolled scarf for the wife, some more handrolled silk squares, one even has an old Macy's tag, so NWT I guess.
    [​IMG]

    Another tie rack for my ever expanding tie collection. Never seen one like this before, has a drawer with a lid on top to hold shit.

    Finally, a vintage Corvette pit crew jacket? Pretty cool. Up for trade if anybody has a Corvette:)

    Exceedingly cool. Any other sponsor patches? Oil/ Gas related? Probably get decent $ on ebay! I've seen vintage VW jackets in that style go for good $.

    That is pretty cool. I haven't seen the show at all....not even an ad for it. Didn't actually know it existed.

    Can do when I get home, but the jacket is definitely older than the car.

    It even matches. Electron blue, baby! Definitely the fastest color...

    I found this in December at a thrift chucked in with the cheap suits. Richard Anderson Savile Row bespoke jacket. I couldn't find much about it on line. Of course it doesn't fit either of the guys so I put it on ebay. I think it lasted 2 days before someone bought it. I took a ton of images of all the handwork. It was a really nice jacket. Since I sew being able to check all the details up close in your hands rather than a picture on the internet was a great opportunity. I hated to see it go but at least it has a good home now.

    Ha, I almost did too, but they're really very nice shoes and were super cheap on discount day. I'm sure there's *someone* around here that has a tough time finding this size and would be glad to have these [​IMG]. They're only half a size too small for BP.


    [​IMG]So, any small footed dudes, get at me.
