Thanks, it's not in front of me, but kinda a whitish silver and dark blue.
A store near me was holding it's 99 cent weekend. I normally avoid thrift stores sales, as they're packed and all the good stuff is snatched up quick, but I was in the neighborhood so I popped in. The racks were bare, but I found an old made in England Burberry raincoat and a ton of nice ties that had been overlooked. Does anyone know how these raincoats run size-wise? The chest on this guy is 23" across, I was hoping it's look ok on me worn over a suit, but I'm swimming...
I haven't found anything lately, but did okay this past weekend, mostly winter stuff. Found a closet full of winter pants: clockwise from top right corner Vintage, old label banana republic wool tartans (34) J. Crew houndstooth tweed (34) Polo gray Flannels (36) Maibex heather blue flannels (32) Zanella Flannels (32) Zanella (32) two pairs of polo wide wale cords (38) oh and a Polo Fair Isle sweater vest in Large. ancient Liberty of London, Zegna, and a Robert Talbot...
FWIW, I've seen that LP label before.
It's been months since I've found anything decent in my size.As for interesting stuff: did find a mint condition pair of Loro Piana black cords (size EU 54, which I think is a 36), that were really nice, and a pair of RRL jeans (40x27)Nothing great, but two labels that I've only come across a couple times in years of doing this.As for furniture:There's an odd dining room table at one of the local shops, the whole thing is fairly Danish modern looking, the legs very much...

Are these sold out again? The sizing is maddening.
I sear there was an SF thread about this a number of years back, but I cannot find it at all.Hysterical blog, great stuff.
the linen jacket is now sold price drop on the tweed
I'm not a slim lapel fan, if anything I prefer a slightly bigger than average lapel on most of my suits. That being said I have an older Brooks Brothers suit, the fit is perfect, the shoulders natural, in short everything is right about it except the giant 4.25" lapels. that come within a couple inches of the shoulder. I believe it's an old Brooks MTM, and the big lapels look really out of place on the suit. Doing some experimenting with a tailors tape it would seem...
