Thrift Thread Gift Exchange 2013 is now closed for entries! We have a total of 58 members in this year's exchange! PMs will be sent with your chosen person sometime between Friday and Sunday!
Just got an email that TJ Maxx is now online. I don't see any menswear, but quite a bit of stuff for women (D&G, ChloƩ, etc.). My wife is happy.
Re: Shoe measurementsI include insole length and width on every pair. If I'm buying a new pair of shoes that I'm unfamiliar with, I'll request the same. Maybe it's silly, but it at least gives me an idea how long they will be. I don't include the outsole length, but I will give that measurements when I'm requested (once a month or so). I will give other measurements upon request as well, simply because I'm in the game of selling things online. It either instills confidence...
+1 to MZhammer's advice. There is also a vast amount of information within StyleForum. The photo-heavy threads (such as the WAYW threads). As for actual books, there are quite a few. Manton, for example, wrote a book on men's style.As for unvented jackets, they may not be en vogue, but I wouldn't exactly say they're out of style. They create a different silhouette and look nice on the right body-type. They look great while standing, but not so much while sitting.
...now at 51. Do note that we have quite a few from outside the US (around 20%, though that includes our Canadian friends), so there's a higher chance that you'll have international shipping. If that's a problem, let me know and I'll remove you from the list.
Last Call for the 2013 Thrift Thread Gift Exchange!Please let me know ASAP if you'd like to join! We are up to 50 members (thanks to those that pushed themselves to the 50 post minimum!)!I've spoilered a list of everyone I have. Please double-check the list for your name. If you signed up and don't see your name on the list, please get in touch with me. Likewise, if you want to back out of it, please send me a PM before the names are drawn.

Sorry to pile on, but I'd say that jacket is probably not worth whatever you'd spend on tailoring Welcome to the thread!
My pleasure! I enjoyed the exchange quite a bit last year and hope this year is also successful!
Oh, and as a follow-up, big thanks to Capnwes for helping me draw names this year! He will receive half of the names (mine included) so I will not be drawing my own partner (nor will he his). If you're worried about your information (name/address), you can know that Wes, myself and your partner will have it. If you'd like to use an office or PO box, that's completely fine, as long as you can receive mail at it!
Thrift Thread Gift Exchange update... The sign up period closes tomorrow! Please let me know before if you'd like to join! As of right now, we have 46 members representing 18 states + Washington, D.C. and 6 countries! I will publish a list of participants' usernames soon to give everyone a chance to confirm that they're involved. I have tried not to miss any PMs and have double-checked things, but I don't want to leave anyone out! I have sent a few of you confirmations...
