Shouldn't it fit you like a sport coat? :drumroll:

Packing a suit up to ship. Notice this. No clue how I missed this. ffffuuuu.gif

Any idea what a tailor would charge me to fix this? Not a rip, stitching just came loose. About 3 1/2" long near the armpit where the sleeve attaches to the suit.

Some modest finds from a little backcountry thrifting today (plus the balance of what I got with Wes).

Wrangler/Blue Bell blanket lined chore coat (a biggish 42)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

NWOT deadstock Woolrich MIUSA Upland Game pants. Unfortunately a bit faded from being stored, which I didn't notice in store.

TONS of camo in these stores. Don't know enough about it, so all I got was this super cheap woodland M-65.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

6" Bean Boots. Need a little love, but lots of tread left. Size is worn off. They're a little big on me, so they're probably a 9 considering how big Bean Boots run. Maybe a 10.


NWT Browning heavyweight OCBD.


NWT PRL cords


Vintage flannel

A few fodder ties, madder, and untagged braces.


Also got a Massimo Bizzocchi that didn't make the photo for some reason.

Same stop, found this bespoke suit, and it fits!  Made for the creator of a local custom made menswear company, www.suitsbycurtiseliot.com.  I'm contacting him to learn which materials were used here. 
Suits by Curtis Eliot (Click to show)

Soft pink pinstripe, pink buttonholes and gorgeous diamond pattern lining.

No tags whatsoever, but custom made for the owner of a local bespoke tailoring shop.

 

I contacted the original owner of this suit and it's a cashmere wool.  Better still, I have an appointment with him tomorrow at his shop.  He generously agreed to have the suit altered to fit me!  I'll find out what mills he uses and what price range he's in.  Albertans, feel free to PM me for the deets.

^ Not the best feeling about the Versace tie. Pic of the wide interior liner and the skinny end black tag?

Not sure how much business you give to your tailor, but I would think if you go often enough, he/she would do that for free. That's a super easy fix. Should take no more than a minute or two.

This is pretty awesome, NWT deadstock Pierre Cardin/Henry Rosenfeld tweed suit carrier. Not expensive or rare, but cool none-the-less. 3 clams.

 

 

 

Canali Super 120s. 36" waist, single pleat. Only if they were 32. :plain: 4 clams.

@Nobleprofessor requested i find some LV at reasonable, personal kop prices. here is a sample of the search:

 

 

hey, it's cheaper than Ebay. and i get to inspect it. might be time for a new gym bag......

I'm likely not the first to accidentally list an item for international sale, that being said I just sold a heavy loden coat to someone in Argentina. Any tips or pointers for inexpensive international shipping? Thanks!

Try the eBay thread.

Quick fit at work this morning... 100% thrift







Shurt: Burberry London
Sweater: LP baby cash (that was a good day)
Pants: Bagnoli
Sh00z: Sutor Mantellassi


I found a bunch of stuff last night (including an Isaia unstructured triple patch) but I was more excited about the framed salmon serigraph. Ichthyologist at heart.



Deets/pics on clothes later.
