Pretty awesome find. That top button is so you can do exactly what you've done in the pic. Keeps the wind off your chest when you walk around outside / makes you look like a badass kung fu priest, depending on your sartorial persuasion. Also, despite what a previous poster wrote, sometimes the top button (in your case top-middle button) should be buttoned, depending on how the garment has been built. A hard 3-button stance where the top is left unbuttoned looks just as...
 Nice find! Instead of doing the Black Friday thing, I decided to go to a local designer today to get fitted for an MTM blazer. Felt pretty good to be supporting Canadian talent. Then found out he was having a 50% off sale his  entire stock... ended up kind of doing the Black Friday thing.   Maybe they're lady shoes? Are they cashmere on the inside too? Or just the outside?  Also, not that anyone really cares, but it's a big deal for me... I actually managed to get out to...
 Step 1: returnStep 2: Google 'peacoat'
 There's really only one Prada out there (and of course a bunch of fake stuff). That looks real to me.
 Sweet looking Kiton and the Faconnable is nice too. As for the Lanvin... maybe it would help if, when trying to figure out if a tie is the 'good' Lanvin, people just tried to picture if it would fit with this look: http://www.ssense.com/men/product/lanvin/charcoal_grey_contrast-sleeve_blazer/74733
 I'm going to take a respectful shot at this comment and all the follow-up supportive comments that have followed:This is StyleForum. A lot of people in this thread and in this forum as a whole came here knowing little to nothing about fashion, but wanting to know more. With proper knowledge, and a lot of patience and commitment, thrifting allows one to build a very nice wardrobe for very little money. And that's what most of us are here to do (or at least came here to...
 What does this mean? If you have time to post, and time to go out and thrift, surely you have time to read a few pages of a thread? It would save you money, time (that would have been wasted inspecting crap on the thrift store racks, and then returning or re-donating said crappy items) and closet space, and it would save everyone else here from having to sift through yet another newbie junk haul post. In other words, win-win-win. You don't need to read all 6,000, but read...
 Great looking cardigan and a nice fit in general, although I don't think the cuffs mesh with the Lanvins.  Go on...
 Looks pretty good, would be good to see the full fit though if you're looking for real criticism. The only thing that seems off is the shirt collar, which looks kinda unnaturally stuffed under the jacket lapels. Longer points would be better I think. And re: all the insane flipper talk... I still remember striking up a conversation with another flipper, which ended up being an incredibly pleasant chat that carried on as we looked through the racks, exchanging stuff we...
 That's a really nice pattern on the Billy Reid shirt. Have a shirt with a similar one, and find it quite pleasantly versatile. In other news, had the day off today and was planning to go on my first thrifting excursion in months. Had a good breakfast, put on some warm clothes (it's effing cold in Toronto right now), set off. About five minutes away from my first store, got a call from work asking if I could come in. Can't say no to money. Forty minutes later, was at City...
