I've only seen an Isaia tag in a cremieux once

I have yet to find it in their suiting, even on ones that are using LP fabric. I have, however, found a handful of the Isaia 7-fold ties.

I've found a couple of those Isaia Cremieux suits, all from the same donor with 15.5 micron LP fabric. They were all my dad's size so he had a good Christmas.

330ck told me that they aren't made in the same factory as mainline Isaia, but in a factory for diffusion lines, Michelangelo eidos etc.

Just to be clear. The isaia for cremieux is I believe the silver signature label. Not available at every dillards. I think maybe texaswood had one earlier in the year. I have never seen one. Having said that the good level cremieux with L.P. fabric is a nice suit but I think you will know if you find one of the isaia ones. Ties are much more common and I see them sometimes new at the dillards clearance center about $40 and then you can often get 50% off that.

20 bucks for ties of that quality, is nuts.

I feel so much envy for your finds sometimes. Arc'teryx is one of my favorite brands, and I never find it. I have a pro account with them and I still clench my cheeks when I buy their stuff.

They are all good for different things, but if your looking for the goodies and public transportation go to Manhattan. I don't know why I quoted this, but I figured you would see it either way. 

No place beats Manhattan for sure. But that would be going home XD

Just wanna try a city that I haven't been to before.

Today was extra good because the normal pricer is on vacation.


First ski pickup of the season. Rossignol Big Bang Tele skis with carving platforms under the bindings. I kind of wish they were my size!

I'm in Chicago. If you're downtown there appears to only be 2 thrift stores that are walkable and I didn't find much like you're looking for. There's other stores around the city but they're not that close in a car so walking seems bad.

If I go to Chicago, I think I will take those skytrain (what do you guys call it down there?) as my primary mode of transportation. Was checking out the map, do you know if the Orange Line (south) go through decent neighborhoods?
