    Both owned by same dude. Not having measured I'm going to guess a 40R-ish. The pant legs are long. Must have been 6-0, 6-1ish

    Just a general comment: These Robert Graham shirts are spreading on racks like e. coli at Burger King.

    I found this yesterday at the Goodwill. A Emilio Pucci by Ermenegildo Zegna Suit w/ Flat Front pants. Everything looked great until I looked at the sleeve. Aaargh! I couldn't find a lot of information on this line. Sold by Saks. I might kop it and try a re-weaver that has been posted on this thread previously.

    Sorry for the crappy phone pics.

    Was this shortly after you beat him for his share of the Kiton? After taking the pic, did he scrawl a note in blood? :uhoh:

    A couple of silk pocket squares (unavailable):

    Burberry jacket. I don't think it's an orphan, though it could be. It's not nearly as big as it appears (unavailable):

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    McNeal shirt. McNeal isn't expensive, so I leave almost everything I find. I do, however, have a couple of linen shirts from them that are great. I grabbed this because it's 10x better than their normal stuff. Sea Island cotton with beautiful buttons. Size 40, available.

    Austrian Army Alpine sweater. HEAVY and no flaws. These are cool and really useful in cold weather. Tapered waist keeps it tight on the hips.

    This one fits pretty well and was dirt cheap. It came from a menswear chain that closed a year or two ago. I find a bunch of their stuff NWT. Their house label isn't bad, but it's usually marked up pretty high. This is a wool/cashmere blend that I'll likely only wear once per year, but it was worth it at that price.

    This is pro advice.

    The Huntsmans I found were orphan jackets at first and I was really really bummed -- not for the flippability or tradeability, but just when you find something nice like that you grieve in general that it was separated...if you're a clothes dork like me, and if you're poasting here, you'd better be hahahaha

    ...and there they were, 4-5 racks away, together, just like the coats were paired in the coat section. Was not as successful with a corneliani found same day, different stoar.

    Is there any point in picking up an amazing flannel Zegna sport coat with a tiny moth hole near the cuff and a label with vertically-stacked words, like so:




    Z
    ERMENEGILDO
    ZEGNA​


    Because it's breaking my heart.

    I'm not an expert but I believe the "Z" line is one of their lower lines.

    Thanks, but it's definitely mainline. There's just a little circled 'Z' atop the name. Driving me nuts. At the very least, the flannel is so nice, I'd like to use it for something, I just...don't know what. :D

    Is the Z in a circle? Sounds like older mainline, noob. If you like it, grab it!

    By the way: Anytime the word "Ermenegildo" appears, it is not the "Z" line. I was confused about this for a while, since some E. Zegna stuff has a big Z on the tag. Also, the Z Zegna stuff is actually pretty decent, I've found—despite the less than stellar rep on here.

    Picked up two things today.

    NWT Vineyard Vines Golf Tie (available, not that anyone will want this):


    Apparently a custom order for a golf tournament in Binghamton (the Don Hengel Memorial Sports Classic). I guess the player is supposed to be praying? I'm not sure what the "S" on his shirt is all about, but I guess a Michigan State alum could claim it's for "Spartans"? [​IMG]

    Pro Tip: Better then learning labels is learning content tags. Anyone can remember a name brand (store employees included), but if you know the tags you know what you really have.

    Both are not available.

    Found in a higher end thrift store where BB ties are $8-10, Versace, Zegna, etc are $20+ The script RL tag is gone or this would have been 2-3x the price.

    From a large store where they have an OK idea of what they have by name. Also had an OLD ugly Zegna at the same price which was left. I know these were talked about the other day, but first time finding one. What do the numbers 1-15 mean on the blade?

    This is pretty great. My wife's a Northwestern grad and she always gets after me for not having enough purple clothing. I'd pair this with the Bonobos purple cords I got for football games.

    If you ever get tired of it ....

    I wrote that down, but remind me next fall. If I haven't worn it by then, it's yours!

    I actually found it on a women's rack. The woman working was watching as I tried it on and must have thought I was buying a purple women's jacket.

    Oh, and ATLjon: I know you were looking for German maps, but I wasn't sure which region. I passed a map of Frankfurt, though it wasn't terribly old (maybe 1930s?). Which area were you looking for again?
