See the post below for specifics. Basically it was made by a higher end local MTM shop that does good work, and the fit is out of this world. [[SPOILER]]
I go: 1. Suits / sport coats 2. Shoes 3. Ties 4. Pants 5. Outerwear 6. Sweaters 7. Luggage / bags 8. Make a walk through of the electronics, furniture, etc I usually skip: -Tshirts -Dress shirts (I do MTM shirts - nothing ever fits right OTR so I just skip) -Jeans (all crap where I live) Basically my theory is that I would hate for 'the good stuff' to disappear off the suit or shoes rack while I'm sifting through sweaters so I go for the most desirable finds first.
I think my radar might be way off on the desirability of Harris Tweeds. Since I'm in a colder climate (Canada) I could literally bag 6-8 HT jackets per thrift. I always leave them thinking that they are just as ubiquitous everywhere else. Maybe I should start picking more of them up and making them available. My recent one was only purchased because it was way up there on the fit/quality/fabric scale.
The pattern matching on that suit leaves a little to be desired...
I think that since this is an 'on ice activity' one should do it. Off ice stuff is completely different.

Found one on the 'bay.
The comments section of that article was pretty awesome. My experience at HR: Uneducatead, snobby sales folk and crazy markups. I think I'll stick to buying online.
Wonder if he gets extra suspension for bailing on the ASG (like Lidstrom a few years back). Sucks for me, since I have tickets, but I've seen Ovie play before.
Here's some of my recent finds. I don't think I've posted any of these yet. Stuff I'm looking to sell or trade (low prices! - any imperfections have been noted). PM me for measurements. I really need to get this stuff out of my closet. Zegna Glenplaid Sportcoat (MTM but fits like US 38R - very slim) Zegna High Performance Sportcoat, made in Italy (fits like US 42R). Awesome lapel roll - 3 roll 2. Minor chip on one sleeve button Canali Sportcoat (EU 50R). Awesome...
