    IMO, these kinds of post should REALLY be kept to PM if they are directed to a single person. Post your stuff to brag about here but don't put asking prices or links to ebay or B&S. [​IMG]

    I've been looking for a pair of seersucker pants for an upcoming wedding. Question for the group - is it ok to cuff a pair of seersuckers? I would assume so, but haven't been seeing any in my search. Will likely wear them with navy sportcoat and brown dress shoes (AE Kenilworths probably). So, cuffs/seersuckers? yea/nea?

    I think that would be the case if he was an old man, since he's not I think it works.



    Found my first pair of decent sunglasses:

    Tortoiseshell Persols, made in Italy:

    Some stuff I picked up the last two days.I made a total noob mistake though because I was in a hurry. Both BB blazers have damage to the liners, which I didn't realize until I got home. The herringbone is salvagable but the black one I'm going to harvest the buttons on. Wah wahhhhh. :violin:
    BB golden fleece custom made. Working 2 button cuffs, single vent, 2 button with a cool liner. Light wear to the liner around the collar.

    Authenticity check. Anyone know?

    And nice find with those Persol 2720's CottonDockers. I bought those off ebay in the spring and absolutely love them. Those look like they are in better condition then mine too!

    I have these and they're fantastic. Amazing find!
    Re-attaching a sleeve lining is really not that expensive.

    My first find of pocket squares.

    T&A shirt with a label that I haven't seen before, hopefully not fake?

    Sample only Dockers...left has a really cool pattern and the ones on the right are Alpha khakis.

    Some BB ties

    Didn't pick this up Henry Poole bespoke because they wanted a lot for it. Seems like a 42R and I can proxy for someone if they want.

    Picked up a couple things today.
    [​IMG]

    Nothing special, just some LL Beans. It's nice to find stuff for myself for once, though.

    Then I found this Lacoste Golf Polo sz 5. Everything looks legit to me (MoP, made in france, croc looks good) but this is the first Lacoste thing I've picked up. The croc was on the sleeve, I assumed because it was Lacoste Golf. Can anyone confirm it's real?

    Not sure if this applies to lacoste golf, but look for another tag on the inside of the shirt about where your hip would be. Does the tag say "DEVANLAY"?

    Yea, but the sleeves at the cuffs are shreaded too, too much work, me thinks. On a similer note, has anybody put gold buttons on a glan plaid sport coat before? I've got two BB jackets, one's tan and one's glen plaid. I'm thinking the glen plaid could look cool with those sheep buttons. Thoughts?

    Hit up a few stores, but only picked this up.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I did pass up a couple of choice suits (I'm trying to get rid of stuff before I buy any more), which I'd be happy to proxy if anyone's interested.

    PRL DB navy blue chalkstripe flannel - Made in USA, side vented, tagged 41R, pants - 36W, $30
    PRL DB charcoal flannel w/ purple (I think) pinstripes - Made in USA, side vented, tagged 41R, pants 36W, $30

    Oxxford solid navy blue - side vented, about a 44R, 38 (or 40) pants waist & 28 (or 29) inseam, $21
    Oxxford charcoal w/ purple pinstripes - "Hand made in Chicago" (MTM?), side vented, working cuffs, about a 44R, pants 38 (or 40)W & 28 (or 29) inseam. This thing was seriously sick, though it had a small rip in the jacket lining and a small hole on the back. Seemed like a fixer-upper, so I passed. $21

    What size is that Chester Barrie? [​IMG]

    The solid Oxxford is definitely worth picking up. If it was a 41R like the others I'd be throwing money at you to go pick it up for me. [​IMG]

    I've only once found a nice vintage Pierre Cardin piece. It was a paisley shirt from the late 60's. Had long, rounded collars, concealed button placket, MOP buttons and side gussets. From then on, I knew that at one point PC stuff was really nice. That was about 6 years ago. Today, I stumbled upon this beauty. I'd date this to the mid-late 60's. Charcoal gray with purple pinstripes. Double breasted 6/3 front. Single vent. Ticket pocket. Has a good amount of handwork. Trousers have a split curtain waistband. Flat front, no cuffs. Super nice. Sadly, it's a couple sizes too small for me so it's available.
