Thanks Andro, it's been a slow process, two years ago, I was still wearing hoodies, jeans and dunks on a regular basis. I really have to give credit to this thread and the vibrant thrift scene in Chicago for how my style has transformed, especially in the last year.

@Wes, I wouldn't have left that SR jacket either, that thing is fucking amazing! Also, nice haul as usual. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Jos. A. Bank (yes that shitty name has just popped into the thread) is doing a 70% off regular priced items sale. Why post a deal for 70% off of junk you ask?

Jos. Bank gets a worse name than they deserve, I think. If you buy the better stuff they make and at the steep discounts they offer it's perfectly fine. I have a bunch of basic ties and shirts from them. Plus my suit wardrobe is currently entirely JOS (but it's admittedly introductory).

Any hipsters into Pendleton high quality western wear?

That's my take on them as well. Their stuff is actually decent for what you pay for it, you just have to be careful with their absurdly large cuts. If you can get it to fit, it's not bad, as long as you compare it to stuff in the price range where it actually sells, not where they peg their regular retail. It's a decent option for those on a budget- no, it's not Isaia, it's not Kiton, it's not even Brooks Brothers- but they're sure as hell not Stafford, either.

Nice, Wes. So much volume and some really high quality in there too.

2 Zegna Wool and Cashmere SCs (one is 90% cashmere), 1 Canali SC and 1 Canali Navy Window Pane Suit. All dual vent, 2-button (all unavailable):




The tagged size on this one (the Zegna) is smaller than I normally wear, but I think it fits pretty good. Just need to lengthen the sleeves. The smaller size worked in my favor as I don't need to take the waist in at all.
Nice stuff. Like the look, but for sleeves, as you say. Fits you well, I think. Over the last year, I've gradually been a) trimming down, but only just; and b) realizing that all my stuff fit too loose.

Maybe it's because I'm picking up altered stuff, but I've found that I can sometimes fit into anything ranging from a 40-44 depending on the cut and maker. That jacket just pictured is tagged a 38, so I have no idea how it fits me.

I could just as easily say that life is to short to blow your money on unnecessary stuff like ridiculously expensive clothes when you could be blowing it on vacations. Not everybody feels that $4k a suit is appropriate for their life, even if it is absurdly nice.

I'm guessing the Balmain tie below is not Balmain worth bragging about, but I figured I'd post it anyways in case someone wants to comment and confirm for PSA like purposes.
