This is one of those news-you-can-use posts, where you can say to yourself “Now I remember why I’m following this guy’s blog!”
Charvet 1985 bespoke double-vented (mohair?) 3-piece suit, seen at Les Orphelins d’Auteuil charity shop, 23 euros !!!! Yes, twenty three.
I’m not getting this baby for myself, too small unfortunately, but my guesstimate is that it’s a size EU48, for somebody who is under 6 feet tall.
If you live in Paris, it’s worth trying it on. I don’t think it’ll move too quickly, it’s not an obvious color. However, it’s in great condition, and it’s not every day that you get to score a prestigious French bespoke suit for less than on eBay, with a possibility to try it on before you buy.
And no, before you ask, I’m not trucking it down there to take exact measurements for anyone. If I was going to do that, I might as well buy it and try to flip it on eBay myself. Can’t be bothered…
Update one hour later:
Change of heart, I went back and copped it, I’m going to flip this f*cker on the Internet or in some specialized secondhand stores that I know. The damn thing is in mint condition, like the guy never wore it once. The profit will help me fund my habit.Update one day later:
paul-lux.tumblr.com is getting it, the size is right. We’ll split the profit the day he sells it.
