Anyone want these AE Hillcrest for cost plus shipping? 9 1/2 D
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The jacket fits really good, though I think the jacket, the sleeves, and the pants all need to be shortened (order of importance: pants>sleeves>jacket)
And for it to work with those sweet sneakers(they're real cool) I think the pants could be tapered (a little) aswell
I disagree on the jacket... The shoulders are too big and it's causing the wrinkling under the arms.
I'm seeing the opposite. Maybe it's just that I started taking much better pictures, but suits / SC's are selling better for me. That nailhead Canali I put up last week sold at the BIN for $125 which I wasn't expecting. The Versace tie I found still hasn't sold and I have a bunch of Zegna's up that haven't sold for a while now.
Exams are impending, so no thrifting for me. Already planning a thrift-trip to London for afterwards though, which should be fun.
Heads up for the small guys- 5 T&A shirts in a slim 14.5 have just gone up on ebay, £15 each. Arms a tad too short for me: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320914595581?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_742wt_1270
Also, something I've been pondering for the past couple of days-
Eazye- how did you get that desk home on a bike?
totally missed the wrinkling, only looked above and underneath where the wrinkling was (if you put one finger sideways over the wrinkly part you'll probably agree that it's looks good-fitting )
Eh, personally I kinda dig the shirt/tie combo, but that's just me (more of a similar blue in the tie, or a more purple shirt woulda helped). Did the best with what he had on hand given the last minute oh shit circumstances. That suit is a trip to the tailor away from looking really good, but there was probably no way DM could get a fast turnaround on narrowing the legs / trying to bring in the under arm area of the jacket.
Would have liked to have seen darker sneakers when going this route. Sure it has some blue that matches, but at the cost of the lighter surrounds, it just doesn't properly jive in my eyes. I thought about doing it when I went to prom, but never found shoes that would work so I went with the crappy rental shoes that came with my tux. Ugh remember that whole rental racket?
Most important of all, however, was that he enjoyed himself.
