Ran into a lawyer friend today, and he says that no crime would have been committed--if you find something in a public place, it is finders-keepers, and the jacket and the pocket with the money in constitute a public place.

You're progressively getting a lot better at this.  I really need to take your, and others' leads and start learning how to dress myself.

 

Thanks! It's a darker shade just a touch on the purple side. It really sets off the brown grenadine well, IMO. I never get good color representations under the fluorescents, though.

Too long or too short? Did the shirts work out? The Oxxford will be going to the tailor with this one to have the sleeves let out.

Big shout out to Tubs. Got my very first ugly carpet Dun & Co. tweed. Even though I try avoid buying fused jackets, but this one was so "fucking awesomely ugly" to pass! He's a nice guy to deal with.

Not a thrift find, but found this jacket at a consignment shop. From what I could find, it's from the 80's and was the same styling as the Perfecto using lower quality leather. Size 42 and available.


Also, found these made in US PRL tweed trousers for myself.
