Well he's certainly expensive. This coat is from 1973 so I'm not sure how useful it is as a reference point. But the styling is very good on this piece, great lapels, and very cool details like moleskin lined pockets. Buttonholes are very tidy. I mean it's held up phenomenally well and has obviously been used.

I've got a Maurice Sedwell suit that I bought a few years back on eBay too. The rise was huge and I took it to a bespoke tailor in London to get it to being wearable, which was fucking expensive, not recommended. I just loved the fabric, kid mohair. And the quarters on the jacket are still a bit off, very closed. I don't know whether those stylistic details are a house style but if I was going to get Savile Row bespoke (other than my Cad and the Dandy suits) I would go elsewhere. Like Chittleborough & Morgan - they do such amazing stuff, instantly recognisable and elegant and apparently their attention to detail is second to none.

If not for the damage, definitely kop.

Get on that pressing game, water helps maintain crisp lines.

Pretty insane for a thrift price but if it's working it would be worth it. Definitely for personal use and probably some room left if you're trying to flip it. However, if it's got problems, hopefully they are ones you can fix yourself (they often are) or something that would be easily fixed by someone else. I don't know how into vintage stereo equipment you are so I apologize if you already know all this. Thrifting for stereo equipment, LP's, cassettes etc. is what got me into the whole thrifting game. I've come across some nice stuff! But sadly, hardly anything these days. Long story short, very cool piece and you generally can't go wrong with Silver-Faced Marantz.

Going on a cruise to Key West next month.

I was stoked to find there is a Salvation Army store on the island!

Wife will not be impressed...
