    Stopped by one shop today.

    Pringle of Scotland Cashmere tagged 44, it's the most ridiculous vibrant cobalt blue color, 3rd picture does it justice. Unfortunately there's a small hole there the tag attaches. Figured it was worth a pick up anyways, available

    Someone please tell me this is what I think this is...

    The I looked super similar to the Kiton Logo. I remember a while back someone found a kiton sportcoat that everyone identified by the content (not maker) tag. Anyway to tell on ties? It seems feasible.

    I'm in the Bay Area. Roughly 45mins from SF in Santa Clara.
    I need help finding thrift stores; where are you guys all going?

    Right now I only know of Goodwill. Buffalo Exchange is in SF and is too far.

    Oh well, I wouldn't be too heartbroken if it;s not. Can always post it in the Counterfeit/Similar label thread!

    Saw my first corneliani shirt, had to pass because of stains and the $15 price. Came home to look over my dry cleaning and realized they had somehow chipped 5 buttons on the HF presidential blazer I thrifted. I'm hoping they'll cover the cost of having their seamstress next door fix the problem :/

    One GW on the way to some baseball, it was bad baseball, but great weather.....78 degrees at first pitch...picked up two things that if my size I'd keep and wear, but want to pass on to members here:

    First, for the larger sized, marked 46L, Olive green SC, Gieves & Hawkes 55% Silk, 45% wool for Bullocks, pristine condition, front pockets still basted shut, interior content tag still crisp. Don't think this has been worn a handful of times. Seems to be fully canvased, fabric underlayment(?) on collar, single vent (available, cost $9.99 + postage + ):

    This is the closest to color, almost brownish olive green

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    PTP 24, Sleeve 26+1, Shoulder 19½. BOC 32, waist at top button 22½

    Second, Dockers in pants are, well, Dockers pants, but did pick up a like new Dockers corduroy jacket, marked 42R, measures a little bigger, measurments jibe with new online offerings at $150, available at cost ($9.99 + shipping + cost of a 22oz cold adult beverage (will consult Concealed for ideas, at my local watering hole):


    PTP 23, Sleeve 25+1, shldr 20, length BOC 31, waist at top button 21
