I don't see many of Brooks Bros Extra Slim fits around here (I think it has something to do with the cheese and the beer in the Wisconsin diet...) so I picked this up the other day. If anyone is interested let me know and we can make a deal. It really is in very good shape--I suspect the owner outgrew it during the first baseball game after purchasing.
I haven't been out as much lately, but ended a long shell drought yesterday with some vintage longwings.
This is my experience to a T. The only place I go that has a significant difference actually prices suits 15-20 higher than buying the same items separately. Wouldn't you know they do the best job of keeping them together!

Just sheet rock covering at least 20 store fronts. They are extending the building out into the parking lot, and adding a parking...
PSA: Milwaukee is approaching civilization status. Nordy's Rack opened the other day, and they're building a Nordstroms. Could it be that more good stuff will start showing up in thrifts...in a couple of years?
A deal for these fell through, so they're available again!
Tell him to read the whole thread, start to finish, and then... oh wait, maybe that's a little hard core for a seven year old.Nice story, my 7 son (also 7) hates when we stop at the thrift store. We stop anyway.
