A blog about the things I make and modify, with occasional thrift purchases that I am especially proud of. Some things I make to hopefully sell, others I just want to show off, but the right price will take anything--shoot me an email if you are interested!

Ermenegildo Zegna Sport Coat Find!

I had a good trip thrifting while on vacation. This was the cream of my crop. It fits something like a 38-40R with short sleeves. There is some wear and tear to the liner, but the outside is gorgeous. It is double vented. Here are the measurements:

  • Pit to pit: 21 1/4”
  • waist: 19 7/8”
  • length: 19 1/2”
  • shoulders: 19”
  • sleeve: 23 1/4”

     I'll let it go for $75 if anyone is interested, or email me to make an offer, because I just might bite!

     Here are a few more pics:

Leather Bible Re-cover

I used some Horween Chromexcell horse leather to recover a bible for my wife and a new bible for my brother's wedding gift. I got some nice silk satin ribbon to make multiple markers.
There is a little glue sticking out, but I'm pretty please with the result. I hope it holds up for years of reading.

New Ties and Squares

I have finally finished some things, just in time for the season to change and make them all inappropriate. Well, there are a few items for fall/winter, but mostly summery stuff. Bow ties will run you $18 shipped and squares $22, since the edges are all hand-rolled.

The green solid and blue striped are from silk ties, the navy blue from a Citadel tie. The red neat pattern was cut from a silk scarf, along with some of the squares. The pink tie was cut from a polyester tie my brother gave me.

The gingham are from a subtly wavy cotton seersucker, and the blue plaid are a cotton madras.

The pink is a smaller linen up-cycled form some linen pants, the red plaid is cotton madras, and we've just seen the gingham. The red are both from the silk and each have one solid edge.

Here are some shots of the hand-rolled edges.
