By exact same tie, you mean this very one?

 

You a Denver-ite?

Damn tell me that's a small or slim cut medium and available. Would love someone like this to brave Michigan falls and winters.

Also, finished prepping the Landy for my trip to Ann Arbor. I plan to take my rest stops at goodwills along 80 to prevent burnout from a 9+ hour drive and hopefully steal some finds from people out in western PA, eastern Ohio, and southern Michigan. Hopefully I choose the right three goodwills, unless there are more popular thrifts in those states that someone wouldn't mind telling me about (names of chain stores like GW, VV, etc., not the one you explicitly shop at). In either case, I'm excited for my first solo road trip and to get to A2 (less so for law school bleh).

It's a small, it's slim cut, and its the jacket that I'll be wearing the most once fall hits.

I have one nearly identical one that I bought a while ago, though I've lost my hood. Nice coats!

This summer I picked up a down-filled parka from Land's End with waxed canvas from the British Milleraine Co. It was $50 shipped to Canada.

My guess is: guy dies; family puts obituary in pocket so people know where the suit came from; family donates suit.

I would guess: Friend of guy dies. Guy goes to funeral in suit using obit to tell him where to go, leaves obit in pocket. Guy rarely wears suit, gains weight, suit doesn't fit, donates suit with obit still in pocket.

I purposely blocked out the manufacturer, so as not to offend anyone.

Or it's the suit they buried him in.
Remember that scandal a few years ago with the funeral home that held services but never did bury the bodies?

Thanks for the info. I grabbed it because it was well made and cheap. If I have redonate it, at least the purchase price went to AmVets. That's why I like shopping at the charity thrift stores. Though happily the local Goodwills will take returns for up to 2 weeks.
