Hmm... yeah, that's what it was marked, but I thought maybe it was made by someone else. Didn't realize Trussini is a maker themselves. 


Yeah, Trussini makes their own clothing.

 

And I thought Gitman Bros. made the USA shirts for Burberry...I could be wrong, just guessing.

as I see it, it needs the sleeves to be lengthed slightly the pants definitly need to be hemmed (not pictured is about 6 inches of extra fabric folded back into the leg) and I want to slim the pants, nip the waist, and slim the sleeves. if any of these actions are agregious mistakes please let me know
Ian, I'm not going to comment on the fit, just the economics for the moment. None of the alterations you mention are terribly expensive (well, I don't know about slimming sleeves, never had that done) but your return on investment is likely to be low. If you are going to have several black tie events in college (I think I had a total of one) then tell me to crawl back into my working class hole and shut up. Otherwise, I'm not sure paying for alterations on this suit is all that wise. Especially since you will very possibly gain some weight by the next time you want to put it on. I'm just saying. Of course, the two length issues go without saying - have them done.

Oh yeah, I should also say (since I missed the chance when you were talking about senior skip day) SENIOR BALL? Oh my gosh some of you are young. Yeah, I know, and some of us are old.

While I'm thinking of it...

 

A huge shoutout to Klobber for an awesome package including some amazing shirts and a PRL Corneliani hunting blazer with hacking pockets, ticket pocket, etc. And it's been the motivation I need to lose the weight I've added since I hurt my back, so I plan on wearing it in a month or so. 

 

Also a big shoutout to Sam Smith for the great blue pindot BB tie... really gorgeous

 

And finally a big shoutout to Typhoid Jones for an awesome tattersall BB OCBD

 

Thanks guys!

Milano is their discounted model. Pretty outdated stuff from the 80s, 90s. I've picked up a few for the bay but didn't have much luck getting good prices. =(

REALLY nice HF hand tailored from '04. No size (custom made) or content tag, but it feels like cashmere and it's about a 38R (21" p2p, 18.5" shoulders, 19.5" waist at the button). 3-roll-2 and surgeon's cuffs. Wish it were my size, but available

Oh, could be. I know a lot of the tailored clothing is HF and since it's here in Rochester I figured it could be HF too lol8[1].gif

I really have no idea. I am not as well versed as everyone else here on makers. I know that HF did their jackets but I thought the shirts were Gitman. Oh well. puzzled.gif

it is a whole lot cheaper than renting a tux, the got the tux for 25, I already have a bowtie, cufflinks, shoes and am bidding on a tux shirt for 10, after tailoring a may be looking at a 100-120 dollar investment which would be at the low end of renting a tux so really I am saving money versus going the traditional route, plus I get to keep it. I doubt I will have any black tie events in college though I am planning on going to uc santa cruz notorious for flannels and pot, but really you never know when you will be called upon to wear one. Your point about gaining weight is a good one though, I think I will be conservative on the amount of slimming I do, maybe just take the waist in a little to give it a little more shape and slim the pant leg a little bit, slimming the sleeves probably wouldn't be wise considering I have started to do a lot of weight lifting and probable will have different sized arms in the future.

also yes I am super young biggrin.gif

Been a little while since finding anything interesting in a thrifted item pocket...found these today inside a sport coat I picked up last weekend.

 

 

A baggie containing a brownish-white coarse powder, and a small clear plastic straw (I added the quarter to show scale).

 

Already flushed down the loo, so please: no PM's asking if it's "available".

Been thrifting in the Bluff?  Is "flushed down the loo" new slang for insufflation?

you have got to be kidding me, I have been looking for those exact jeans for over a year and finally shelled out big money on ebay for them not even a week ago, that those are in my exact size :/ also all those pendletons are sick

post #47549 of 121997

Hey guys! I've been pretty absent from thrifting as of late, being nearly broke most of the summer. Thankfully I've gotten back in the swing of things and I'm happy to present...

 

Thrift find of the day/week/month/year/decade?

 

 

 

Chocolate suede John Lobb Chesters!!!!!

 

 

 

 

Looks like they've been worn a handful of times at most.

 

 

And the best part - they fit! They're a tad big but I can always wear thick socks. 

 

 

Maybe not up to DM7 levels, but probably the best I'll ever do! No idea how I'll wear these, but I'll be sure to throw up a thrift fit pic when I do. Let me know if anybody can hook a brother up with some nice shoe trees on the cheap.
