Maybe @Koala-T or another 40R/S guy?

No, just old and not that valuable. I would have bought it myself.

Saw - and left - a dark heathered blue Canali suit today, jacket and pants, because the jacket had multiple pinhead holes all over it. Razzafrazza. Not much else to report. But I was SO looking forward to posting pictures of that suit today!  Until I saw the first...and second...and....so on, holes. Put back. Grumble. :/

This is definitely a price error, they're usually $55, not $15.

Happy belated birthday @Nataku! sorry I missed it. Haven't had much time to post lately but I just got caught up on the thread, great stuff on that borrelli suit story! Thumbs all around.

I said sure, thank you so much. That is so nice of you. Are you sure? Yeah, he said, unless I wanted to give the jacket to him.
I think I probably just would have offered to double or triple his money on the pants -- basically reward his generosity.

But it sounds like it worked out in the end..

Except that someone claimed the suit before I could. That part blows.

Just gotta echo everyone else, that @Reosymes and @colorvision serendipity story was one of the best things I've read on here (other than some of Klobbers bodily-function-related tales) since it's been going (and I've read from the start). Awesome stuff!

Thrift Karma to all!
