I handed it to him and said good day. Forgot about the pricing there. Did see some Kiton and Brioni shirts there, though both were fatally f'ed up. Was this close to picking up a Russian night vision monocular haha.


I wouldve threw it in his face.

^^ Awesome.

Speaking of oldest thrift finds, I went back for that 1941 Hickey Freeman suit yesterday.



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






In amazingly good shape for its age. Just one inconspicuous flawed area, toward the inside bottom of the left trouser leg:



Measurements: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
  • 42 R jacket (22" chest, 18.25" shoulders, 30" from the bottom of collar, 33" sleeves)
  • 36" trousers (13.5" front rise to top of waistband, 28.75" inseam + 4" to let if 1.75" cuff removed).


Dibsed at the moment.
