Nice cardigan. By modern standards how does this fit relative to its labeled size? We always hear about size inflation and how much slimmer the average person was back then.

It's marked L and it fits like a modern slim Medium to Large. Not blousy at all, rather trim, and the length is perfect, like right at belt line or slightly below. It's what I wish all Ls were like these days.

That mohair cardi is one of the best thrift finds I've ever seen...jealous, my man.

What town are you in? What did you pay? We talking real Salvation Army thrift, or a well-edited trendy boutique 'thrift-find'?

Man of Moods silk cardigan (http://www.blueowl.us/scripts/psp/VB...il&SKU=9900056)
Man of Moods loop back hoodie in light grey (http://www.blueowl.us/scripts/psp/VB...il&SKU=9900070 -- same item in a different color)
Man of Moods long sleeve U-neck gauze shirt in brown
Mr. Olive shirt jacket in black
Mr. Olive half-sleeve V-neck t-shirt in brown

These Japanese brands fit me really well -- I have a hard time finding American wear with narrow enough shoulders, but I'm just the right size for how the Japanese design their clothes. Also, Jay did a great job of helping me out, and showing me things that fit and looked good. If you're in the Seattle area, I highly recommend getting in touch with him.

A few months ago I had wondered how SF clued onto MoM and Mr Olive - they are cool brands. Now that I know, I can say that Jay is an awesome guy and really knows his shit. Everybody should talk to him if they like clothes.

Good to see that Blue Owl is coming along well, though I dislike that it's in Bellevue... ;_;

usually I just hit the well-edited boutiques. But when a fetching wimmen from work asked me to accompany her one Saturday on a thrifting spree, who was I to refuse? I picked this up for about 3 bucks at some church rag store.

I'm the Asheville NC area which has an abundance of thrift stores, including both the well-edited boutique and the junky salvation army types. I've gotten many things over the past few months at a great boutique place that seems to specialize in 50s/60s with some select things from later decades. Got a great houndstooth-patterned, narrow lapel, cashmere blazer there that fits me perfectly. Made in the 60s. I think I picked it up for around $25.
