1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    If there are any Trailblazers/Timberwolves fans on here, Uncle Spoo listed a Zegna su misura jacket that belonged to Brandon Roy. My only celebrity clothing find to date.

    A weird old pair of C&J's, purchased in Jo-berg, surely in the bad old days.

    They fit, so I'll see how beautiful I can make them before I decide whether or not to flip.

    Youdabest

    Haven't forgotten about that polo, I'll mail it to you eventually.

    Actually I lied about that being my only celebrity clothing. Found five of Antonio Harvey's suits.

    Also, I came close to buying this old suit. I guess a lot of Pac NW businessmen travel to Hong Kong, so I find stuff from HK tailors in the thrifts all the time. This 1970s suit has a crazy high waist, but I actually kind of liked the look - I just couldn't pull the trigger. Thoughts? Would any of you rock it?

    I'm BACK, bitches! No, not really. Life still chaos. But DID go to work today (see thrift fit below) and DID hit a couple stores. Thrift fit: [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] HSM MTM Finamore Vintage unlined Scottish wool Unknown cotton sq, hand rolled Trafalgar belt Isaia Pantherella Charles Tyrwhitt
    Finds: [​IMG] (Colors are all washed out; natural light sucked) Shoes: [​IMG] Testoni worn maybe 1x, my size and should look awesome once shined. Cole Hahn hand made in Italy, welted and sewn sole -- this is the good stuff, 8.5D I think AE some name I can't remember cap toe blutcher. Needs TLC, but lovely oxblood color. 10.5D
    [​IMG]
    Shirts: Borrelli (hand sewn collar), Chang [​IMG] SCs [​IMG] Orvis (good stuff, I think) forest green cord, with all the features - removable throat latch, patch pockets, shooting vents at shoulders. 42R, and keeping for now Southwick linen. 38R. Available
    [​IMG]
    Suits(ish) [​IMG] Crombie wool/cashmere 40R. Prolly an orphan. :( PRL solid gray 6 over 2 DB, dual vent, USA made. 46L
    [​IMG]
    Ties. All from one. Freaking. Store. :slayer: [​IMG] L to R: Brioni, Gianni (never heard of it but like so I'm keeping), PRL, VV (kid size), Hermes, E. Zegna, Luciano Barbera, Versace V2, Ferragamo, RLPL NWT x 2 (YO SPOO: That gray dot look familiar? :fistbump: ) The Ferragamo and Brioni seem NWOT, which I could believe given the RLPLs are NWT. Oh, and the Torneau watch for Praxair. This may have been a mistake. It's very nice, but I think I overpaid. If anyone needs a last minute mother's day gift, let me know. All reasonable offers considered (whether it covers my cost or not).

    Hey GMMcL, could you share a shot of the Gianni label? Curious if its a line by Gianni Campagna, or totally unrelated.

    GMMcL welcome back, bet it felt nice being back in the hunt. Nice fit too.

    I haven't gone out in weeks. I am itching so bad.

    Will try. Left it in CT and won't be back home for a couple days. Could be; it was Made in Italy and seemed very well made.

    I found 3 Samuelsohn 3 piece (vest) suits today from the early 1970s. My knowledge of Samuelsohn is limited. Is this a good period or a less desirable period?


    [​IMG]


    Also, I have limited Bachrach knowledge. Have passed on many until today. Hard to pass up 100% cashmere, made in Italy. This seems to be a little more casual.. almost an overcoat, but not nearly as long? Do they make their own items?

    Also, not pictured has been a bumper crop of Charvet ties. I passed up on a polyester Charvet tie a month ago, and ever since then, the nice silk ones have been popping up everywhere. I like it!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And now for the bizarre!
    [​IMG]

    Yep. Very old, mid 70's most likely. Oldest Zegna label I've seen thus far.

    There are still a few people I owe favors, so get at me if something tickles you.

    found a couple bow ties today.
    [​IMG]
    they're all available - just make it easy for both of us & shoot me a fair offer, as they will be listed on eBay by Sunday.

    Saw these at the Goodwill in Redlands today and decided to pass because I didn't want to do the work of cleaning and flipping. I'm glad a fellow SF'er got to them!
