Day of firsts for me today...went to my standard lunch SA and spotted a bunch of shirts but not enough time to try on so went back after work and went at it. Turns out a gentleman had dropped off a solid bag of stuff from his closet.
Finally found some decent shirts in my size that have a slim silhouette and don't need a nip/tuck at the tailor. Picked up my first Zenga and Canali (x3) shirts.
Figured since the guy dropped off some quality shirts, he may have had more in the bag. Took a look at the pants (which i never do) and found my first Incotex (chinolino)! Need a hem but in my size so all good. Sifted through the ties and found my first Lanvin and my first Napoli anything...7 fold Partenopea
Gotta give me respect to everyone hear because I would never have thought of picking up Incotex or Napoli ties a month ago simply because I wouldn't have recognized or appreciated what I was looking at. Thanks.
My other first is implementing my newly adopted philosophy of walking away and not buying anything that doesn't fit perfectly (thrift deals aren't that thrifty after a trip to the tailor).
In case proxy questions come up, I have to say that I'm in Canada so shipping to the US is stupid expensive (think minimum $25-30 for ANY package) and not worth it IMO.
That being said, left a handful of other shirts that were in my size (16) but an 1-1.5 inches too wide in the shoulder or too big around the neck (16.5). Zegna, Zegna Sport, Ascot Chang (first), Canali, Linen Florence brand.
3 Pink's tht were a 1/2 size too big and 2 inches long in the sleeve. Hurt to walk away but knowing I don't have to bring em to the tailor is worth it.
Used to be into Jap denim (2 pairs of Samurai's) and learned a bit about Evisu denim but know nothing about their jackets...worth picking up for the flip (cost $30)? Evisu groupies are die hards but a very small following so...
