New thrifter and first-time poster here, so pardon me if I don't know all of the terminology yet.
Hit the jackpot on only day 2 of thrifting for suits, jackets, and shoes. Among a few handsome items in my haul is a gorgeous Oxxford Clothes Super 100's suit in navy/black mini houndstooth for $3. No size tags, so unless I'm mistaken, it was a custom job, roughly 40R.
I thought the shoulders might have been a bit wide, the chest and waist definitely was, and the pants were quite billowy as well, but long story short, the tailor made it work! I'm hooked!
Worthless without pictures
PS - Welcome to the forum.
I didn't buy them because I didn't hear from him in 7 days. I think 7 days of no reply is a good indication of him not being interested in selling to me, at least. One door closes, another door opens. 7 days later, the first door opens again but I've already walked through from another door.
I remember that show. It was called Let's Make A Deal. They didn't do a lot of thrifting on that show, as I recall, but there was lots of wheeling and dealing, kind of like they do over on that other thread called Buying and Selling.
Love those old shows!! NO WAMMY NO WAMMY!
