Soooooooooo, how do you add a spoiler to other peoples posts? Yea, me no so good at computing.
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.
Vintage Brooks Brothers single button, peak lapel tuxedo jacket, VENTED! Size is marked 44 regular. Available.
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.
Orvis blue OCBD, made in the USA with a cool embroidered duck on the breast. Size 16 x 34, available.
PRL "Phillip" shirt, made in the USA, size 16 x 34, available. First PRL USA made shirt I've come across.
My first Corneliani shirt! My size but not really my style, so its available. Size 15.5/39
Vintage BB white OCBD, my size so I'm keeping, made in the USA with a nice collar roll!
And just for grins, heres another shot of that linen DB.
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.
Ughh.....there was a shirt rack LOADED with Sean John the other day....from afar I thought I had hit the RLPL mother load
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. . 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.
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.
Tentative fit pick, this mutha is slllllim!
BB Irish linen short sleeved shirt. Size small, not available.
And these, AE Leeds in shell. Size 11B, most likely available.
Also just realized I always look like I'm really pissed in my pictures, which is not the case at all.
Nice hauls, guys!

Nice haul man! Wish the pictured above weren't my sizes. I am holding my wallet close trying not to pm you...
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?
