Samuelsohn 44 Regular         Brooks Brothers Scotland Tweed 46 R       Vintage Harris Tweed, 40 R               That's the best of the best of my new offerings, but I also have some more Brooks Brothers, a vintage USA Polo and some, um, BR.   As is the unwritten rule, auctions end Sunday. Most start at $9.99.
I'll trade for anything I just put up on ebay:   http://www.ebay.com/sch/jonhross83/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686
DEFINITELY the trailer. No contest.
Why you buy this?   ... Because it was $7 all-in and fit perfectly. Tailor fit, 40 short is acceptable, yes?   But it's Banana Republic!   ... I guess I'm a sucker for peak lapels. And it has a zippered cell phone pocket! Sweet, right??   IT'S BLACK corduroy!   .... well, at least it's only three years old.   Will you wear it?   ....   
Whenever new thrifters come here asking new-guy questions, we should now point them here: http://thriftygent.com/how-to-thrift-part-4-fit/. This four-part thrifting series is a bit more thorough than the Put This On primer, which is actually probably maybe a bad thing.   There's nothing in the series that regulars here don't know, but it was a good read, regardless.
Here's the Harris Tweed overcoat in a proper setting.   It's going to make someone pretty happy, I think, once a few minor fixes are made.     [[SPOILER]]     Here are my questions. Should I get these repairs done myself, which I imagine won't cost more than $20, or just sell it as is? Is this vintagey enough to sign up for an etsy account and park this and another tweed on there, or should I just take it to ebay (or one of you guys)?
Lunchtime thrifting.         Harris Tweed overcoat, probably a size 40-41ish. The lining needs some help, but this can easily be worn without it.           [[SPOILER]]       A First!   Drakes French Cuff Shirt:  
I've seen a stitch of Kiton, in suit form, at Marshalls, for a grand. A bit out of my price range. Though I have noticed that the awesome Brioni sportcoat that had been at a Marshalls around the corner for probably at least six months is finally gone. I'm waiting for the $1900 Made in Italy BB suits to get just a little cheaper than the $250 first-sale price, but that probably won't happen.   Does anyone know where Marshalls goods go to die? They must ship them off...
MAJOR props to Mr. Boogers for a ridiculously nice Hickey Freeman sportcoat. It's really so nice and fits me almost perfectly that I'm tempted to pry his other 38 Short sportcoat away from him, even though that might be a bit overkill.
