It's frustrating that that they aren't supposed to sell them because they have so many. Much more than they need, i'm sure.

 

+1, I've managed to grab a few with new and unknowing employees ringing me up, but otherwise they are strict around here. One store sells bundles of "suit hangers" but they are usually just ordinary cheap wood hangers. The best one I have is a very, very nice Aquascutum hanger that had a Hardy Amies 3 piece on it. Took the suit to the register on the hanger and they bagged the whole thing up no questions asked and no additional charge.

ooops

 

didn't see this.  Thanks @Woofa

 

Hear you on hate leaving em.  Well the one that made me ask in the post earlier was only a 6 fold; but can definitely feel the difference.  I've yet to come across a Brioni 6-7 fold; but I already like this one over any of my Hermes.  

 

First one I've seen in my travels (tho I'm still relatively new to thrifting compared to some of the people here).

I didn't know Isaia makes the Cremeiux high end stuff!  I have found a few of their suits and thought they seemed very nice.  One of my favorite suits that I wear is a Cremeiux with LP fabric.  I knew somebody special had to be making the really nice ones.

First stop was my kind of goodness...

Dear Thrifty Claus (Click to show)

Here are a few things I'm looking for to give you some kind of idea:

 

-Barbour-style quilted vest w/ collar

-Sandy colored sued belt 34/36

-Extra slim button downs 16.5/17 - 34 (prefer button down collar)

-FF wool pants in a 34/35x30

-Brown wingtip or cap toe boot 12D(11.5 if they run big)

-Stan Smiths or similar

 

I'm usually more toward the casual side. Ties get worn rarely. All-in-all, I'm pretty easy to please and, as others have said, just appreciate the thought.
