Hello all, I'm a long-time poster to the thrift thread; I've been finding nice stuff for a while now, but these are the first items that are close enough for me to take a visit to the tailor. And .... I've never been to a tailor before! (I know ... 29, and I've never visited a tailor. Go figure.) So what do I need done? And how do I communicate that? I know there's a bit more to do with the second one. If it needs more than $100 in work, I'll probably just sell...

    Yeah, I know it's not quality, but it looks fashion-forwardy, so it'll do. This Dude might think it was pretty cool.   I'm pretty sure the Cornelliani is a 40 R, leaning toward a 38/39.

Non thrifting success (well, an anniversary gift from my wife): My ratio shirt arrived today, and it is pretty great.   Thrifting success (well, not for me, but for for someone here, perhaps):     really quick and dirty and very approximate measurements: p2p: 23 shoulder: 19.5 length: 32 sleeve: >25   So ... 42 R?   And now ....   [[SPOILER]]
