    when replying to a quote just highlight their text and hit the spoiler button (the black text box icon). I suggest highlighting only the text so you can still see whose quote it is, as you can see above

    O.k, so here's the rest of the stuff I picked up yesterday.
    First up, a Norman Hilton jacket that fit me so well, I couldn't just leave it. I'm serious when I say, I've never had a jacket fit so well right off the rack, no trip to the tailors needed. Now I just need to go back and find the pants. :embar:

    Vintage Brooks Brothers mini-hounds-tooth, check, 2 button blazer, single vent. Size is marked 44 long and from season S4? The pictures really don't do this bad boy justice. This thing is really bad ass in real life. Of course I'm partial to jackets with loud patterns. Available.

    Awesome finds as of late guys!

    If anyone needs a proxy for some of the finest Sean John, Stafford, and Nautica goods, please let me know. Omaha is peppered with such treasures.

    K - back to my lurking.

    BRB, off to find more torn RLPL, Belvest, Borrelli, Loro Piana, Margiela, Yamamoto. People really wear their shit hard here in Denver. Yeesh, I need some Dallas and LA Oprah wealth in my thrifting life to balance out the condition of finds with the quality.

    Oops. [​IMG]. Hmm, it was made in China though. How odd. Maybe Pendleton just has a heavy presence in Japan and they know that? Anyhow, thanks for the correction.

    Haha, thanks man...just hit a bit of a good streak. Actually, the only things from LA are the 4 shirts, the unpictured Pal Zileri Sartoriale suit, and the 2 Oxxfords. Everything else was from my usual spots around here.

    no prob, i think japan just has different laws reguarding fabric content that requires a a japanese tag

    alot of dior homme pieces have japanese fabric tags or a section that says FOR JAPAN ONLY

    This lends more credence to my belief that it's authentic. It's very well made...everything about it leads me to believe it's real, but I'm always wary of "Made in China" labels on high end stuff. Thanks man.

    I can let you know the size though, since it's unavailable: it's a large. [​IMG]

    Today, been had sick linen summertime jackets.
    David Hamilton made in Italy soft yellow linen 3 button jacket, single vent, 1/3rd lined, 100% RAW! Pick stitching all over this bitch! Very little shoulder padding, nipped waist, high armholes, slim arms! Just need the sleeves shortened a touch and the chest let out a smidgen, and it's good to go! Also gon have it turned into a 3 roll 2. 48 drop 6, although I didn't find any pants to go with it, I don't think they're necessary. I've never heard of the maker before either, but I don't care, it's for myself. :D

    I have a flannel shirt by Mason's that I like. Shirts seem to carry a $150-200 price tag from what I've seen. Maybe all casual type stuff?
