Maybe it's just the pictures, but that thing looks huge!
that's what she said
did a little Vintage Rock T-shirt shopping this afternoon.
It's a great shirt. Couldn't believe it wasn't even marked as "boutique". The retail tags are on the button at the waist, though, so whoever priced it likely just missed that.
Camicissima is about 16/41, 16.5/42, Pisano and Hilditch are both 16/41. Thanks.
Its the picture and how I have it placed in my hand that makes it look big lol
Over the weekend, I went thrifting and picked up a couple of interesting things. First was a Daniel Cremieux signature collection made in Italy tie. Not really my style, and a bit wide, but it was super substantial and thick. It turns out it was a 6 fold tie, the first I've come across.
The next thing I picked up was a very nice midnight shawl collar tuxedo from Nieman Marcus. The tag on the inside of the breast pocket had a date of 195_ , I think it said 1952, but it runs off the edge. Nieman Marcus was only in Dallas until it opened a Houston store in 1957, so the tux dates to when it was a little local department store. This thing was beautiful, satin lapels, jetted pockets, single button. Only problem is a small hole in the front of the pants, near the fly. It would be covered by the jacket normally, so even if a repair was slightly noticeable I don't think it ruins the suit. The pictures don't really show the midnight blue, looks black but under natural lighting you can see it is a very dark blue in contrast to the lapels. And for some reason photos are not orienting correctly, sorry about that.
I've put them both up on ebay, with the opening bid at what I paid for each. I'm not sure if its against sf policy to link to those, but my username there is jeremyjfloyd.
I found these gorgeous Sahara Trekking Shoes made by Orvis. They appear to have a traditional leather sole overdubbed with Vibram. No heel erosion, perfect outer/interior. If it weren't for a little dust on the sole, I'd say they were new.
Size 10.5 D, but according to the reviews on their web site, they appear to fit a half to full size small.
WILDLY AVAILABLE FROM STORE: NOOBIZOR
I really wanted one of those shawl collar navy Bloomingdales cardigans that they had over the winter. They're all gone now
Indeed it is! Of course chances of find this stuff (Dior Homme) is about 1 in 40, but they're out there.
I think it's obvious - you and DM7 rule this thread with your consistently amazing hauls! I am in love with that Zegna sportcoat. An EG tie?! Wow!
Do you recall the size, by chance? That sure would be something if they were the same pair!
Bill Kaiserman by Forall? Gerard Soulaine Paris? Made in Italy? What do these words add up to? Can't find anything, kthanx...
Well, that's for the general consensus of this thread. We have a quite a few members from California and a few from the big cities in Texas so that brings the overall chances of someone finding one in this thread up quite a bit. For me personally, I'm looking about 1 in 2000 because I'm pretty sure I'm closing in on seeing at least 1500 Dior items of some kind over the past 10 years and I still have yet to see a Dior Homme in a thrift store.
Sz 38, still a bit snug, just need to let out the waist.
