Bluntly ignoring the warnings to drop the music meme (because even thrifters need a soundtrack), I'll defend myself once, and only once (because I frankly couldn't give a crap what anyone thinks of my music tastes): I straight up guarantee the songs you think I have on that mix are not the ones I actually have. (Conversely, if you think I haven't heard deep cuts into the Stones or whomever, you're likely wrong; I have and have knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily decided, through exercise of free will, that they're not for me -- brace yourself; I know that seems IMPOSSIBLE when the great Keith Richards is on the line, but it CAN happen). Peter Gabriel is not the mass produced stuff. It's from the sountrack to the movie Passion. Davis is from Sketches of Spain or Ascenseur pour l'échafaud. And so on. And as for instant gratification: IT'S MUSIC. That's kind of the point.

Well that freaking explains why there's been crap all around here.

EDIT: I forgot the entire POINT of my post:
Picked up a J Press flannel charcoal chalk stripe suit today. No photos or measurements yet, but it seems to be around a 41R. Available; PM me if interested. Also picked up a couple of Vineyard Vines flat front chinos, 36R, I think I'll keep, but PM with interest.
