Thanks for the nice welcome!
Re: Zegna PJs - I was skeptical at first. But they were comfy, so I decided to go with it anyway. I did a little research online, and I've seen a couple of places that have them (someone at A Suitable Wardrobe mentioned them some time ago). Again, I'll try and post some pics. They better be real, otherwise the thrifting gods are just playing with me. To wit, earlier this week, I saw my first zegna suit. Now, I normally don't buy to try and resell, so I left it be at first, because it wasn't my size/style. But then I thought, what they hell, sell it low and make a profit. This thought occurred to me about 1 minute after picking up the suit and setting it back on the rack. In between that time, some guy had already nabbed it (
). He looked like he was doing some serious thrifting, so I thought, well he bested me. I walked past him later as he was checking out the suit for problems, and I asked him if it was in good condition. His response: "Why, is it a good suit?" (
). Follow-up question: "What about this one I found?" (pulls up a zegna odd jacket that - drumroll please - looks exactly my size) (
@caseyfud: Thanks! I've been looking for one for a long time. On my budget, I can't really justify buying one new, but this was $3. Love the french press.Edited by MattR - 8/15/11 at 5:49pm
