When I first read this thread, the 'no chinos' rule was a revelation - so THAT'S what's wrong! I still more or less cleave to it, but there are exceptions; the key, as always, is fit, particularly a taper so you don't get 'flappy calves' syndrome. And a high rise is essential. I've found Cordings' chinos work well with my beanpole physique and they come unfinished with a 38" inside leg. Likewise, Dickies slim fit, and a pair of Norse Project khakis. It's all to do with...
Kevin and Howlin Donegal tweed Norfolk jacket €12.50 - in near perfect condition, though obviously old.
A good few days - 4 pairs of jeans that all fit, including a pair of NWT April 77 Sinners (sorta glazed indigo) for 3 euros ea, a few sweaters and, today, as the sun came out, a very nice Gianluca Napoli overcoat in a sweet brown herringbone..... 10 e

Probably only of use to Europeans here, but I just thrifted a pair of Bertoni NWT cords 30/34 and they fit my 6'3" 150lb frame like a dream - not cut like jeans but like very slim suit trousers with proper side and back pockets. Danish brand, so fits the Scandinavians know best rule.
No Wes Anderson, No Credibility.
On being informed by Richie that he loves Margot, his adopted sister, and being assured that it's not against the law, Royal Tenenbaum says: "I'd say it's frowned upon" Long pause. "But then, what isn't these days?'
like this you mean?
Very good for the tall and thin - his 'S' will fit my 36" chest, but cover my long back.
Nice Zegna Su Misura Jacket, Profeo Silk, Dark blue with light blue pinstripe - it's a 36R, and my real size is the impossible 36L, so I usually settle for a 38R or L , but this fits OK: the waist is on my waist, the sleeves, perhaps a cm too short. Anyway, it was €7.50 at Vincent de Paul, so no complaints
