solid navy tho? i'd wear it as an odd jacket without reservation

 

Thanks, man. I didn't even see that :hide: I'm a complete scrub when it comes to Zegna. Forgive me.

 

Yeah, all solid navy. A bit long for me, so it'll probably be going on the bay tonight.

 

I've been on the hunt for some nice crisp white chinos for a while; which are slim, but not skinny. Some PRL ones popped up in the store, perfect. No stains on the outside, nothing. Looked brand new... but a lovely yellow circular stain that we all dread showed up in the lining. :brick:

It is Su Misura, so check the dimensions carefully.  It could be a heavily modified 48L

I have some Brax Chinos that I picked up a few weeks ago.  Super comfortable.

Really quick one, is this worth tailoring or just flip it?

That fits pretty well already, Purp. The back could be cleaned up a little maybe, but I'd say it's worth keeping.

I need to shorten the sleeves though. I might! smile.gif

Shoulders look good (and nicely made), sleeves are a decent length, buttoning point is fine for your waist. I'd keep it and wear as is if it were me.

Re. White chinos, have a look at your local TK Maxx shops if you don't mind spending £30-40, they've got plenty of PRL in, and maybe some Hackett.

And someone was asking about buttons? You know those 6x1 damaged orphan jackets that no-one buys and end up in the £1/$1 bin? That's where I get mine from. A knackered Valentino suit gave up a load of buttons recently, as did a motheaten SC.

So, doing my normal Monday route. Guy comes up out of nowhere, grabs my wallet and takes off. Such a bullshit day. I guess, luckily, it wasn't until after my 4th store? Will post finds later or some shit.

Did you run after him?

The thing is, the thrifts around here price everything including ripped up garbage at like the $15 to $40 point. I see some people rip/cut buttons off in the change room but I just don't have the heart.

For a bit. I'm out of shape and winded quickly. Plus, dude was just faster than me.
