What size?

Seifer made in Italy hounds tooth windowpane cap
Lodenfrey duffel
Thick ass knit no name scarf
BB pink striped slim fit ocbd
Vintage black label BB repp tie
PRL vest (I put this one in here because there was some discussion about quilted vests a couple hundred pages back. I think this one works because it is a button up instead of a zip up, making it a little less sporty, what do you guys think?)
No name vintage Harris Tweed with the old union label.
Levis cords
Coach woven braided belt
Chocolate suede Aldens from you know who. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif




ffffuuuu.gifYou bastard. Looks great. The button-up vest definitely works better.

He actually just asked where are the best places in Chicago to go. So I suggest an architectural boat tour (awesome, even in November), the Art Institute (American Gothic is there, I believe, as is Nighthawks). And I recommend The Conrad, especially as it is attached to Nordstrom, which will allow the OP to pick up some nice clothes too. You're welcome.

My bad, I just assumed he was talking about thrifts, this being the thread dedicated to it and all. biggrin.gif

Too bad! If I get out there tomorrow, I'll take a look for an exact size. I'm fairly certain it was at least a 57 and likely a bit larger as when I tried it on it was a bit big.

Oh yeah...it's in a coat by Malcolm Kenneth

I also found a Crombie Kintyre for Malcolm Kenneth overcoat. Mine's blue french twill, and spectacular. Best I could discern when I researched it, Malcolm Kenneth was the house (like Barney's or Saks) and is long gone. Crombie Kintyre is the same Crombie as we all know today. They are a mill, and purportedly coined the phrase "tweed" which was a bastardization of the Scottish pronunciation of twill. Either way, they wove the fabric. It's a bit like having the Ing. Loro Piana label on a Saks Fifth Ave sport coat. At least, that's the best I could tell. Folks can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Work has slowed down enough that I can step out to a couple of stores that are within a few blocks of my office. Unfortunately one of them put out a bunch of EZ suits priced too high to make it worth picking them up. Thankfully the other store down the street had this on the rack (along with the form it's displayed on):

Isaia Charcoal Pinstripe Suit (Not Available)

Oh yeah, and it came with a coupon for $10 off my next purchase.

Bunch of passes at the thrift store: orphan Oxxford charcoal pinstripe jacket, navy J. Press wash and wear suit, old ass Zegna jacket, ugly Pucci jacket, three button Donna Karan signature jacket. Still, I got the feeling that good things are coming up. Outside the store, there were about 20 pallets of clothes all ready to come into the store. Oh, but I did pick up the "Boogie Nights" soundtrack:
