    And it helps to sell those US citizens who have no idea that Macau is part of China, and have an aversion to buying stuff "Made in China".

    Question. I picked up this Dinno Gallucci leather coat because it was in great shape and my size. However. Buttons up the other side. Mens or Womens? It is sized Medium and fits like a mens medium. I would have expected a number size for a women's coat. My wife hates it. Available. Butter soft leather.

    Also, Allen Edmonds Manchester is good shape. 9D Available.

    I can't send you pictures as I don't have them anymore! Those $5 Kiton sportcoats happened YEARS ago [​IMG] Your outfit is fantastic! Very well fitted and nicely put together! Well done! But.... clean your mirror. It seems quite dirty in the first picture. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I would LOVE to see what those Valentini pants look like! They sound absolutely gorgeous! Are they a size 40 by chance??

    Thank you for your kind words! I'm very open to trading with you all. I mean, if I find something that's my husbands size, chances are he'll take it. But if I find something that's not his size, you all will get the dibs. I'm not gonna leave a high end sportcoat on the rack! That would be completely dumb of me! I'm not too concerned about getting women's clothes in return. I'm quite picky when it comes to my style, lol. I wear unique shirts. I could always use jeans though! If you find those jeans that have that "bedazzled" look on the back pockets AND in a size 5, please let me know!

    Yes, but when it says Made in China, it means it's made in the mainland, where quality control tends to be atrocious. Where as in Macau, Hong Kong, are considered "new" old territory which has led me to think their quality control is a bit better. I don't have many garments that were made in Macau except for those APC's, but some of my Made in HK pieces are fairly quality and I'll take made in Macau pieces over Made in China pieces any day.

    Did somebody say "40S????!!!!!!" [​IMG] jk, jk!

    Picked up a mess of ties, on Sunday, although nothing seriously brag worthy. Handful of Polo handmade ties:

    [​IMG]

    Bunch of BB vintage ties, last one on the right is a silk/Sea Island cotton blend.

    [​IMG]

    Couple of Talbott ancient madders.

    [​IMG]

    And then there was this one. Ebay search turned up nothing, but the pattern was neat and I hadn't seen anything totally in German before. By Laco for Herbert Stock. Anyone familiar with them? Hansderhund?

    You got it! It'll be our little secret! Sounds like a a tough size to find though. I'll be on the lookout! [​IMG]

    Oh wow! How does that make you feel?! At first glance, I didn't realize those were golf clubs.... I thought it was Gianni Campagna's scissors from his label!

    Well, I would wear this.... but...

    I have a few finds that I have some questions on. I picked up two suits that I thought, initially, fit me. Unfortunately, one is a 40L that would cost about $155 to tailor to me. The coat on the other suit fit, but the pants needed some letting out. Unfortunately, when I was at my tailor, we found a patched hole that would be exposed. I'm still considering getting suit #1 done, but wanted to get some advice from the forum here. Also picked up a supposed "Christian Dior" shirt, but I'm not sure it's real. Hoping I can get some tag expertise if possible. Thanks in advance for the help.

    -J


    Suit #1, 40L and too long for me unless I want to spend $155. Anyone ever hear of Britches of Georgetown? Seems like an old local NoVA department store, perhaps?

    Legit Loro Piana tag?

    Suit #2

    40R I believe (coat fit me well and I'm about a 40R), but the pants were too tight for my 33-34 waist. Plenty of room to let them out, until I noticed the patch job. Anyone ever heard of the brand?

    So much [​IMG] in that last post...

    Everything everyone else said plus I'm not sure a coat of that length is a flattering look for you. Makes you look kinda tiny.

    I always assumed it was because those brands are made for the big fat Italian dudes who can afford them.

    For what it's worth, I've heard nothing but good things about Unbranded, especially at the price point. A local store is selling them for $50 right now and I'm seriously considering getting a pair, even though I already have a denim backlog.

    You could probably stand to get a below the knee taper on those, though. There's something weird going on on the right leg in that pic.

    Eazy has first dibs on this, coolest jacket I've found in awhile, and it is in absolute mint condition, as if never worn.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And I don't often ask this, but passed on a Burberry navy blazer. It was $5 but ventless. Good call?
