The 'good' YSL is Rive Gauche and difficult (relative to the amount of non Rive Gauche YSL) to find in a thrift. So unfortunately, it would have probably been better to leave it as other YSL's are much less desirable.

Yves Saint Laurent Jacket (?) - 44R (Available) Was this a 'should of left on the rack' garment? Never seen a YSL before so I picked it up.

I believe this is the label you're looking for. Sorry for the crappy photo.

Second in line, I'm heading down to a size 40! (size 41-42 as of now) smile.gif

<- 40R, although I have NO experience with DB jackets and I would even know what color/material tie to wear with that.  I would probably save it for fall and wear a scarf instead.  Love the old school blue-green plaid pattern though.  Maybe grendel should grab it up.

Has anyone heard of the brand Eckerle from Germany? I couldn't leave this thing at the GW yesterday, especially since it was one of the yellow tagged half off specials. It's double vented, super 120s (E Thomas) and pretty badass imo. It's measures out to about a 40R...I will literally send this to someone for the cost of shipping. Somebody should be rocking this.

I'll post full measurements later this afternoon but pit to pit was 21" and shoulder to shoulder was 18.5". The super 120's fabric is super soft and light so this could be worn year round. It's in excellent condition with no rips, loose seams, or stains that I can see.

I'd like to send this out at no cost to someone that's a regular contributor to the board here because I've learned a sheeeitload over the past year and a half from this thread alone, but there are several conditions...once you receive it you have to post a fit pic. Secondly, if it doesn't fit, you have to pass the favor on to someone else here that can use it. That be all.

21" pit to pit is too small for me, so on to the next person...

Not a thrift, but definitely a discount store. Made another run to BBCC in NC, brought back a few classics on the cheap:234

and

Anybody come across one of these "Bianco Brioni" suits ? It caught my eye b/c of what looked like hand stitching on the lapel. It read -Loro Piana super 150's on the inside but the cloth felt like sandpaper. The label just didn't look right, it didn't feel right, so I left it. Weak sauce...

Never a good sign of a quality suit when you first few links on google are for sales at amazon for 90% off retail.

Are you sure they aren't made in Tuscany? I hear it's beautiful there. But if you're thinking about getting a place there don't bother. There's really nothing available.
