So, I got a personal grail find today. I'm pretty much obsessed with W.W. Chan & Sons, and I still seriously lament over the fact that I sold off 3 that I picked up a long time ago that probably would have worked for me, but I didn't know jack shit about tailoring at the time thinking they wouldn't fit me, so I unloaded them.
Well, look what I found today...
And check this shit...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
THIS IS DIRECTLY FROM THE STORE, ONTO MY BODY...NOT A SINGLE STITCH OF TAILORING DONE YET!!!
Sure, the jacket is a *teensy* bit short (also, I'm shrugging my shoulders slightly so it's a bit less short than it appears), but fuck it. The jacket fit is otherwise PERFECT, and the suit overall is almost perfect in every other way: tapered leg, side vented, soft shoulder (pants are pleated, hence the almost, but still...). This is my white whale.
There is a thrifting Zeus, and that dude is smiling down on me. The only depressing part is that this is definitely from the same owner as the others (absolutely pristine, name crossed out in marker, bought from the same store), so that means the other 3 would have been workable for me if I had know wtf I was doing back when I found them. . Oh, well, nothing can rain on my parade on this one. Soooo excited.
^^^ [Sorry for the double post] Congrats Andro. The suit is pretty close right off the rack - whatever has to be done will probably not be much.
