  UPDATE:  I still think there are some things to be worked on after this latest fit, and I'm a bit annoyed that the process has taken this long, but I feel like we're getting there. Despos and others: Is there a point to which there have been too many alterations to an off-the-rack suit? Should I start getting worried about the durability of things?  I still think they could do more with the crotch area, as I feel there's a bit of extra fabric there making the pants look...
Offers welcome on this 40 R-ish (could also work for a Short) overcoat. This is a Savile Row-level bespoke overcoat, custom made in the late '70s by J.C. Wells.

Any ideas about this one?   Made in Italy

  "Not all items in a particular brand are created equally." Ha.  We should pool our money, buy the book and post all the brands!
Any ideas on this Made in England coat?      
The church thrift shop across from Grindhouse on Piedmont? Prices for suits and sportcoats start at $22ish, but it can be worth it if you pull a Kiton, like I did last year. I also picked up the Barbour that is now in Eazye's closet there. But it can be incredibly frustrating because they get a lot of crap. A lot. Of. Crap. The well dressed guy at the counter (gray hair, glasses?) told me the woman who runs the men's side worked at Saks for two decades. Whatever. She...
