 I'll post more pics when I get a chance... It's rather nice, just a couple of sizes too big for me.

 

 I also just realized that it probably literally was the same suit at the same SA store. Our overlapping territory has it's advantages and disadvantages, eh?

 

Get out of my territory, goddamit!!!!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif

Thank you so much, I thought they were fake. And yes I found the jeans in a North Bay Goodwill, it was priced higher than a Hickey Freeman suit which I didn't like. I Paid $24.99. I left 6 six pairs of Johnson & Murphy size 9, 2 pairs of Alden Indy boots for J Crew and couple of old AE. The J&M were in great shape rarely worn, but none of the shoes  fit me.

Is this the same label as just 'balmain'?

post #58257 of 115102
No. Pierre Balmain is a lesser diffusion line. (Still kind of expensive at retail, don't know how it flips)

I've got you all beat. I was conceived on a 1963 La-Z-Boy at the St Vincent de Paul thrift on Front Street during business hours. And by "business hours," you know what I mean, punks.
