Fashion for sale or wanted / Art Galley & Gabicci ...
« on: October 11, 2020, 12:52:53 PM »
Next we have an Art Gallery knit (worn once in Zaragoza in Sept 2019) and an unworn Gabicci zip neck short sleeve number.

I have washed the Art Gallery top yesterday and will iron it before sending. Basically as new, bar a couple of hours wear in a wine bar in Zaragoza (see pic) 13 months ago. Really lovely quality. Mustard, white and navy. Fully buttoned with a inner collar button loop..no flapping collars on this one. Marked as a medium, again a 38" to 40" chest.

Paid c70 for this so 30 including postage seems fair. Same overseas posting ruleset applies.

The Gabicci is unworn. The stripes are pale blue NOT white as my photos may show. Zip neck. Again a "slim fit" but chest is fine for a 38"/40% Purchased from Arcade Clothing in Eastbourne. Has hung in my wardrobe since for a year now....How does 25 sound?

...thanks for bearing with me on listing up the first batch of gear I have to offer. I've been mad busy at work, doing 17 mile hikes in driving rain for a local charity and enrolling in an advance riding course.

First up are 3 DNA Groove items..they are all marked as large but this is more a Continental/Italian large so more of a UK medium...I'd sat all are spot on for a 38"-40" chest but I would add if you have a bit of a "beer gut" I'd give these a miss as the buttons will definitely pull in that area.

OK kicking off with a 3 button jacket in what I'd describe as RAF blue. I've tied both my mobile phone and a Panasonic Lumix camera and can't quite to capture the colour accurately as it looks like grey but rest assured it's definitely blue.

It's lined in a complimentary pale blue (Man City home colours).  Also it's linen..it will crease, that's the nature of the fabric. 3 buttons, twin vents and 2 working cuff buttons..if you don't know DNA by now then I suggest checking the website or having a chat with Claudio.

I've worn this 3 times. It's definitely one for the Summer unless you live in a sunnier climate and works well with cream chinos or white jeans.

Can't recall what I paid, but definitely around 320 or so.

Happy to take 85 which will include postage in the UK. I WILL send overseas, but will have to get a price for this and will only send by some kind of tracked delivery at a cost to the buyer.

The first picture is accurate for the actual colour:

Next a couple of shirts, oddly the check one I have worn with the jacket so maybe a good combination for someone else too.

It's the larger collar variant with the double button neck fastening. Half a dozen wears at most and looks as good as new. Twin button cuff fastening so more a casual shirt than one for a suit depending on your personal preference: THIS ONE IS SOLD NOW

A similar shirt will set you back around 70 Euro plus the postage to the UK so you know this is a bargain at 25 posted. Again outside the UK I will post at additional cost.

The 3rd and final offering is one of my all time favourite shirts from DNA A long-sleeve Madras number. Same size as the check number but it a softer Madras fabric. This doesn't bleed so the colours have remained as from new.

The usual DNA collar size with the single neck button. Works so well with dark denim as it does with a pair of chinos or even shorts..

Again I'd like 25 inc postage in the UK..Overseas posting as before.

Any questions, measurements or additional photos let me know. Oh and I'll knock off 10% if anyone wants two or all of these.

Cheers, Steve.

Just a quick heads up that I'll be listing a lot of clothing and some shoes too next week as soon as I've taken some decent pictures. Those that have purchased from me in the past will know all my stuff is in A1 order and these items will be no different..in fact 4 or 5 items have never been worn, which is a crime really.

I'll be selling items from:

DNA Groove
Levi's
Maison Kitsune
Mod Shoes (both shoes & clothing from their 66 range, in this case all unworn).
Rains
Gloverall
Gabicci
Art Gallery
Uniqlo
etc
Sizes will be medium 38"/40" chest and size 10 in the shoes. There will knits, T's,  shirts casual jackets, sports coats etc

Cheers,
Steve.

Banter / Hello Rod! (and a few others).
« on: September 05, 2019, 11:26:53 AM »
Hello to Rod & a few others who I may still be in touch with on other platforms.

It's been a while since my last post here. Quite a bit has happened since whenever it was I last posted, but I'm still running my own business, my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer but after a 9 month chemo course got the all clear a few months ago, and my dodgy knees and elbows (plus a bad back) have finally put paid to my cycling days, although I've added an additional form of two wheel transport to the garage.

Anyway just a few random pics of something and nothing :-)

Worn twice max. Ok it's not everyone's brand of choice but I quite like it. 100% cotton it's quite a heavyweight sweater, and can be worn with or without a shirt beneath. Nicely fitted this is another that deserves better use. There is a small PG logo at the base of the hem which could be removed if you so wished. Ribbed cuffs and hem and neck help to keep it in nice shape. The back of the sweater is plain blue without the stripe detail.

No bobbling, pulls or marks of any kind.

Labelled as a medium I'd make this ideal for a 38"/40" chest.

22 please to cover recorded delivery postage too. Bit of a bargain this one.

Fashion for sale or wanted / Jump the Gun Shirt. Ideal for a 40" chest.
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:31:01 PM »
Having lost quite a few lbs recently this is a tag too large for me now, although it's very slim fitting.

One of Adam's in a nice check. This would be ideal for a 40" chest so ignore the collar size as you''re advised to size up. 16.5" collar in real life.

The clear out of the formal side of my wardrobe continues  :)

So we have 3 shirts (all with French Cuffs). Two are Adam of London tab collar and one DNA Groove button down with the larger collar & 2 button neck fastening.

All spot on for a 40" chest albeit these are slim fit and if you are still carrying some Christmas lbs you may want to hit the gym for a week or two  ;)

Collar size 16"

A plain pale pink and white from AoL and a pale pastel mauve/purple candy stripe for the DNA one.

All are immaculate condition from a smoke free home and I'll give them all a press before posting. The DNA one has been worn twice from memory and I can't even recall the last time the Aol's were taken out of the wardrobe.

Onto the the ties. 2 knitted silks ones by Crombie (their cheapest ties are around 120) this is the sky & navy bar stripe. The pink blue & white one is made in Italy but I don't recall the maker. The navy with narrow red & blue stripes was worn once to a wedding. It's acrylic or some other man made fabric but still looks great.

Then there a the 4 silk/stripe numbers. The paisley one is DNA Groove, the Green & Gold is by Ben Sherman and the pale blue/brown & cream one is by Peckham Rye. The red/blue/white stripe is from an unknown maker but does have a label on it.

Finally a pair of 100% black wool trousers from Adam of London. 34" waist 32" inside leg. Usual details...frog mouth pockets, side adjusters etc...but you can read more here of you need to : http://www.adamoflondon.com/aol_newshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=42

So, prices:

All the ties are a tenner including postage, with the exception of the Crombie & Peckham Rye ones which are 15 each again with postage.

The Adam of London shirts currently retail at 50 plus postage but you can have the pair for 18 including postage (I'd prefer to sell as a pair).

The DNA Groove one would now cost about 70 euros plus postage from Spain. I'd like 25 including postage.

Finally the 100% wool Adam of London trousers, 85 new + postage or take mine for just 20 including postage.

If someone wanted the lot let me know and I'd work out a deal for you.

Ok chaps, next one on the block, simply as I've not worn it for the last two years and it absolutely deserves use. Purchased from Claudio I think around December 2015, this is a belter of an overcoat.

80% Alpaca & 20% wool this is an Italian large, but comes smaller and would be ideal for a 40%" chest.

They are sold out in this size now  http://www.dnagroove.it/en/Alpi02-man-14-5658-clothes.html Mine's in perfect condition. Totally unmarked and perfect in everyway. I think it's only seen the light of day on 5 or 6 times max.

With the postage costs from Spain to the UK this would cost you 515 euros which equates to 450, but I'd be happy to accept just 120 which would include postage by Recorded Delivery within the UK.

If you want extra measurements please just shout.

Purchased from Michael Ferrante via his facebook page "Watch the Cloth Moth" this, along with suits and other jackets just aren't getting worn.

This is probably the best jacket I've owned. Just superb tailored sports coat by Gieves of Saville Row. This was before they partnered with Hawkes and Mike and I both thing the jacket is early to mid 60's although there is no date on the inside label, but the styling definitely puts it at around this period. It's in mint condition without marks or stains and doesn't have that musty old clothes smell either.

3 button with single vent it's spot on for a 40" chest and I can supply additional measurements if needed. The wool is very heavy almost like a Harris tweed, so perfect for Autumn/Winter.

It will come with a superb vintage shirt (ivory/cream) and a cracking vintage tie.

For all 3 I'd accept just 100.

I'll let the photos speak for themselves:
