Family Hannukah party in Jersey led me to some new spots, and oh how frustrating it was. First spot was charging $30 for suits except those individually marked, so I passed on a staple BB and an orphaned Martin Greenfield jacket that must have been a 50L. They also marked a recent side-vented Canali SC at $30, and with a large moth hole in the chest! All shirts were $10 so I passed on non-staple Lorenzinis and my first Robert Graham, because it was a conservative polo.

Second place was more reasonably priced, but almost everything had issues: BB tweed in my size ruined by large stains; very nice navy pinstripe Oxxford...orphan; very recent navy Paul Stuart...orphan; vintage BB #1 sack suit in pinstripe charcoal flannel....trousers covered in mold (if anyone nearby wants to take a chance on cleaning these, because the suit was otherwise great, it's $20 in Ewing GW).
So did I get ANYTHING this weekend? Yes..these, and everything is available.
