It’s on eBay: Mayor Willie Brown’s Wardrobe

The former San Francisco Mayor and one of the best-dressed politicians in the United States — Willie Brown — now has a portion of his wardrobe up for bit on eBay.

Several shirts, ties and a pair of trousers from Mayor Willie Brown have found themselves as part of a charity auction for Goodwill in San Francisco — including the Brioni shirt and tie you see above. 

The current bids are ridiculously low and some haven’t been bid on at all, yet, with the auctions closing in as little as a day and a half from now. Go take a look and consider owning a piece of sartorial political history for yourself. 

Thanks to our reader Mitch for the head’s up!

Drake’s Ties
That’s right! I’m bringing back “It’s On eBay” for a special weekend edition. A UK seller (presumably one near the factory) has a supply of Drake’s ties for £24.99 - about $40. It’s an amazing deal, more than 75% off a brand that rarely sells for more than 25% off or so. They’re also very wearable, practical ties.

Vintage J. Press Necktie
There is a case to be made for never buying a necktie new. For 90% of men, any tie they pick up will fit, and styles move very slowly. This is a great example of a very good quality tie that will likely sell for $10-15.

Vintage McGregor Drizzler Jacket (Size 44)
The Drizzler is actually the model that James Dean wears in Rebel Without A Cause. It’s spring jacket time, and a Harrington like this one is a great choice.
