    Brian would you be interested in this 36R tails tux? No name brand, I think it was “After 6”. I know, I know it’s not an S. Pants nowhere to be found. Did not cop.

    That's ironic... Just came on here to post a Cifonelli one of these I found... In grey nailhead... Up there on my weirdest finds.

    Also a D'Avenza suit... Didn't even know they branded stuff...

    Found the nicest Southwick I've come across so far. Cream herringbone 3/2 SC with 1 working button per cuff(this is odd) and horn buttons. Soft as hell. Also, AVAILABLE.

    Shoulder to shoulder: 18". Pit to pit: 21". Sleeves: 23.5" with around 2" to let out. Length from BOC: 30"

    Quoting as these were some of my best finds lately and I think they may have gotten overlooked.

    A big thanks to Nataku for shipping a Coach briefcase my way! It's awesome and will be put to use starting on Monday. I had to recondition the leather and it will need a second coat to even it out, but it should look like new.

    Love it. I passed a very similar coat, about same size, today only in Harris tweed by Yale coop. Some of them were made by Southwick, too. May go back when half price and if still there.

    Folks, Before YoungAmerican or someone else get on my case, it seems I timed this wrong. The tag is really '48 to '62 but the store D'Camm opened in 64. Pitfalls of timing through union tags. It appears some tailors kept on using whatever tags they had on hand until they ran out of them. D'Camm is still functioning and selling good stuff I'm told. I'll visit to check for sure.
