    Those AEs appear to be some Fifth Avenues.

    Anyone have a solid black suit in 38R? In other news, it is hard thrifting in Rochester.

    Epic as epic gets. Mythical is more like it. It's a black swan.

    Picked up a Borrelli sport coat the other day, size 40R (EUR 50R); if anyone's interested.

    Regards.

    Picked this up about a month ago.
    Vintage Gant "Foxhunt Plaid" Short Sleeve Fun Shirt. All Cotton. A little big for me, so I might end up selling it

    Rochester, NY? It's not that hard.

    Yeah. Awhile back I asked you for some tips. I am here now and haven't found anything good yet.

    Purchased this about a week ago - it looks odd to me. Does this denote something special, or was inspector #12 asleep on the job that day?

    Bumping this as I can't believe these Costume National chinos got no response. 34x30, available.

    Also picked up this Fred Perry shirt, available to a bigger guy.

    It would be accurate to say that I have never picked up Hickey-Freeman stuff in the past. However, I recently made an exception for this:

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ RED (not even a little pink, purple, or salmon - R.E.D.) single breasted two-button closure, single vented, 3 patch pockets, genuine MOP's, and 100% cashmere 44 L in excellent / mint condition.

    Can any of you guys who knows what's what about HF please tell me anything about how old it is or anything about HF that would be relevant to this sport coat?

    Thanks!

    I don't know anything about HF, but that is a pretty cool looking jacket. A red cashmere number like that would have to be a hit at someone's office party somewhere. Nice find!
