The Estate of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. auction
The Trad posted a great look at the catalog of the upcoming auction for the estate of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. The auction is on September 13, 2011, but you can review the catalog online here. There are some great classic menswear pieces in the estate, with starting bids around $100-150 for lots containing items by Huntsman, Gieves & Hawkes, and John Lobb, like the shoes below.
Rumor has it Fairbanks was a 40R and 6 ft. tall, a pretty common size, so be prepared for some bidding wars.
