Thanks to all the regulars for another year of sharing your wisdom so noobs like me can start dressing more like grown men. Frugally, of course.

Ben Silver Blazer
Paul Fredrick Shirt
Never had one, but I'd be interested if someone finds some too.
I'm glad you liked it! I wanted to put more in there but couldn't stuff more into the box. I hope the vintage beige Gucci pants fit! They were a cool find. (P.S. the Tango snowman tie was just for shits & giggles since you specified no ties or ps, but I figured it was a holiday tie, so wth.) I'm glad the tweed fits you, it was a little nerve-wracking with the measurements.
Happy holidays, man!
Happy holidays everyone! I finally got to open my secret santa gift! Shoutout to Cesar who hooked me up with some awesome stuff!
I didn't think about it (still stuck in my noobish ways?), but same. I saw lots of stuff in small and XL, mostly outerwear and shirts. That sick black parka in S fit me really well, but was still $400 I think (though no tax) and definitely not a short. Also, there was a John Varvatos unstructured unlined cotton blazer in 36R that I should've pm'ed acosbysweater about, but it was made for someone with much bigger taper and shoulders than I have. Fit was a little weird on me, and I'm pretty much a standard 36R. Anyway, let me know if anyone wants a proxy. Price on the Varvatos was still crazy expensive (for a thrifter), I don't even remember -- maybe like 500? Hence why I didn't think about it.
Merry christmas! and i'm sure Sully is legit, he certainly seems to be, BUT I know its been said before, and I'll say it again, OCooney is the most generous dude in the thrift thread, period. Not a big poster, but when he does its allll freshness, plus I know hes just sitting on awesome stuff he never posts :)
These are the Artioli's I kopped... I tried just pasting a pic but its tiny... Oh well, heres the link. These are sooo dope it hurts, and 102 shipped? Thats a retarted price, just check the other listings, or ask your boy spoo.
PSA: Ill repost in the buy/sell/trade thread, but if anyone wants a pair of size 32x36ish Helmut Lang Selvedge jeans give me a shout. I've worn them once, and the previous owner probably wore them about the same amount of time, they are still crispy as hell. I think they'll stretch some, but in short I think they're just too skinny for my fat ass... Ideally id trade for some comprable denim in terms of quality and wear.
