Gents, I just did my first ever impulse e-thrift for what could be a pretty fantastic brag. But I won't know for sure 'til it arrives, soon after xmas. I'm afraid to say what it is 'til I know. I just had to share that antsy feeling!

Awesome!

Please, come. Sit. I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole, hm?
Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain. But you feel it. You've felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is but it's there, like a splinter in your mind driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Yes that's right, there are poorly dressed people all around you. 

I will find and buy a Brioni suit that's my size before December ends for less than $20.

I chose the slim large because it's supposedly like the classic medium with longer arms (my classic medium from Gustin fits well, but the arms are a bit too short) according to the consensus in the Gustin thread. But this shirt is massively smaller than the classic medium in the chest and waist, with longer arms. I think it's meant for beanpoles, as @barrelntrigger  suggested.


To be fair, I don't think I have an average build. I have a 44 inch chest which is a bit large for my 18 inch shoulders. So in order for their shirts to fit my chest, I would have to size up. But I'm afraid the shoulders on the size up would be too big for me.  I actually have this problem with my Iron Heart AND Flat Head shirts. But they look cool so I don't really care. Also, Gustin doesn't list their shoulder measurement. I just don't want to take a chance without being sure. But I think Gustin shirts are a great bang for your buck if you can fit them.

And I thought I had weird dimensions... I'd wear a 39R coat if my shoulders weren't wide for the size. I only have to size up one to get the fit right. :tounge:

Oh my god that is freaking beautiful.

Here's a couple of recent finds:

 

likely 80s Johnson leathers jacket. Beat to hell, quilted lining is going a little, one of the sleeve zippers is missing a pull, but totally wearable. Fits like a glove. They still make these, so when this one dies I'll know where to go to replace it. But frankly, I'd rather have one that's lived in anyways. Love faded full grain leather.

 

 

 

This one I'm not sure what to do with. This is true vintage, big E Levi's trucker, fabric is in good shape with a nice authentic fade but the seams are having problems throughout and it smells like it was rode hard and put away wet back in the 60s... it's in my size too, but I'm not sure I'm gonna hang on to this one... any suggestions about the condition, what I should consider if I'm gonna flip, would be appreciated...
