I saw my first Loro Piana and Zegna labels today. I passed on both. The LP was Tasmanian Hickey Freeman MTM from early 2000s. Not my size, and tagged for more than I wanted to spend, but I'm kind of regretting that and considering picking it up if it's still there tomorrow.

The Zegna (fabric) was with a huge donation of 5-10 MTM suits from a local tailor, all from the early '90s. All hard 3 button, peak lapel, low gorge. I was hoping there would be also donation of high end ties and squares, but there was nothing.

I really love when you find a suit hanging in a matching hanger

@the2ndhandman that baller Brioni jacket is your thrift karma for sending that insane gift.

 

The best of the goodness that followed that LP robe:

 

 

Actually just found the pants to this "sport coat" I picked up the day before, Caruso for Barneys.  The clerk actually gave me a deal when I told him that I had bought the coat to the suit the other day.

Sport Coats/suits ... How much larger than your regular size is appropriate to have my tailor alter? I wear a 40R, and knowing how big I can go will open some options.
post #24059 of 51059

It's generally not worth it for major alterations to coats IMO.  Wait for the right thing to come along, adjust sleeves, that's all I do.

Gotcha...

I just have broad shoulders/chest and smaller waist that typically requires waist suppression. Don't want to limit myself but don't want $100 in alterations on a $10 thrift find either.
