Went for a run this morning to reward myself for finishing this stupid paper that was dogging me Grabbed a CT shirt (15x35), white with red and pale blue stripes, and a Hildritch & Key tie (first I've found out there). Both available, both quite nice actually. The CT shirt's collar is quite nice (I try to stay super-picky with shirt collars) it's just nowhere near my size. And the tie is actually kinda funky, I like it.

But this trip was more the story of what I left. First, a horribly ugly Robert Talbott. Black wool with messy looking ducks, yuck. Second was a small but nice J. Press jacket, grey check with a very thin blue and red windowpane. What kept me from buying was it was a 2 button but had this odd third buttonhole and button up the lapel. Anyone know what this is? It can button, but it makes the lapel look messed up. Finally the worst one though, a prim-and-proper looking charcoal with pinstripes Corneliani Super 100 jacket. Very clearly part of a suit and I read enough here about avoiding orphans (particularly pinstripe orphans, obviously) to not buy. Searched all the pants, looked through the suits for mismatched pants, asked a staff member to check if there were further racks in the back... Nothing.
Oh well.Left behinds (Click to show)
