So...did you find some Cucinelli?

Yeah there was a pretty immaculate purple sweater/cardigan that even fit me, so I picked it up. I didn't realize it was such a rare find, so thank you for the enlightenment. 

 

Please excuse the poor pictures, I cannot find my camera charger right now baldy[1].gif

 

 

 

 

A little on the big side, but it drapes so nicely that I actually think I prefer it this way.

Hahahaha, well it is somewhat fitting as my university's colors are violet and white, so I actually have a use for the crazy color.

I live in Ravens country so I can get away with wearing purple anytime I want.

They are tagged 40, but fits on the slim side. I would say more like 39 for Oxxford.

Haha, I really don't care what people think, I'm really growing to love this thing... looks like purple might have to become my color. Plus NYC and NYU so non-issue. Now I have something for the peacock thread icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

 

Other recent thrift find:

 

 

 

 

Also fits perfectly (which in my world is an extreme rarity -_- ). Suffice to say I've been reasonably chuffed.

I thought our youth were all striving for ironic, in which case how could VR sport the color of his university in good conscience, which brings me back to my original response: please send to me for "disposal" biggrin.gif

Some recent finds, all available for trade:

 

Also, the shirts from my earlier post are still available:

 

www.styleforum.net/t/9006/the-official-thrift-discount-store-bragging-thread/#post_5761306

 

Picked up yesterday:

 

Bonobos "Bootleggers" chino pants, tagged 33x32:

 

 

Picked up over the weekend:

 

Zegna long sleeve purple polo shirt with smoked engraved MoP buttons, nice sheen to the fabric (size M/EU 50):

 

 

A very loud Robert Graham, with metal buttons (including snap gauntlet buttons), and two fabrics interwoven into each other in the front (size XXL):

 

 

Fred Perry track jacket (size M--slim):

 

 

My best find in a while, a suit in size EU 52/US 42.  It looks pretty recent, gray with gray/purple stripes, ticket pocket, slanted pockets, double-vented, flat front pants, 3-roll-2.5.  It could definitely use a pressing, though it seems to be in excellent condition.

Went after work yesterday and hit a bunch of New Haven/Hamden ones this morning, absolutely nothing. Bought a Paul Fredrick shirt as an every day thing, but really nothing.
