I've adapted. At first, was a little lost.
+1 on nonsynthetic blends. Found a Saks tartan viyella tie at a goodwill for a buck that is very cool
I think you're referring to Lauren by Ralph Lauren, which is outlet/Marshalls/TJ Maxx diffusion, no?
Well put, Doc. I am wearing a Hickey-Freeman Italian silk knit today and have gotten roasted by a couple of the old dudes here in the office who said they haven't seen one like that since 1985. Gotten a couple compliments on it, however, to balance that out! But to answer OP's question, that's a segue: I'd never have considered a knit tie, silk or otherwise, but H-F outlet had a hell of a sale a couple weeks ago and there were two of these silk knits (one yellow, one...
sweet brioni score, simon! So I hit a haunt I hadn't in a while this noon and there was a motherlode of Brooks Bros Golden Fleece and some 1818...suits and jackets. In 42R, way too big for me.

Oh, nothing to do with my earlier posts but I started a "thrifting tips" thread earlier this week, and one of the replies pointed to an earlier thread in a similar vein a couple years ago...and I kinda mashed up several tips and went hunting for cashmere sweaters this week during the heatwave (it's offseason, no one else has picked the racks clean because it's not on their minds, etc) and I just wanted to pass that idea on to you all. I've found 7 so far. One fits me, one...
A day I never thought would come. In my size: Jackets are, L to R Zegna, Zegna, Zegna, Brioni. Shirt: Zegna. Pants, Santorelli (I will have to have them shortened by an inch). I see these things occasionally but never in my size.
