Not sure how often I'll actually wear them, but fun fun fun. Also saw Hermes and T&A shirts in the wild for the first time, but they were at a consignment'y store (Second Time Around). Had never actually been in because I thought it was all women's stuff, their menswear was laughably overpriced. Practically retail price (well, retail on sale).
Mailed something to CesarC a week ago and jokingly said he could repay me with the next Oxxford suit he finds in a 43R, small moth holes acceptable. This morning, I find nothing in the local GW; nothing in the local Unique Thrift (aka Value Village); and decide to hit one last small shop on my way home.
I have no idea how you planted these here, Cesar, but I'm impressed.
One 2B navy solid suit, one 2B blue pinstripe suit, one orphaned 2B navy solid jacket and I'm going to keep going back until the original donor realizes that he forgot to take the pants and finally gets them to the store. Why this guy had two nearly identical 2B solid navy suits I have no idea. Not complaining, though. All are damned near perfect for me except they need an extra 0.5 in. out in the legs.
Also picked up a gray pinstripe Jack Victor with very similar measurements and this, my first Brioni anything:
Probably not a tie I'd pick for myself but I can probably find a good use for it. PM if you can give it a better home than I can.
Also, thanks to Ian Erickson for the sweet leather backpack USPS delivered this morning. I'm going back to school in 2 weeks, and the semester I took off was worth it if it means I can get an extra semester's use out of that backpack.
Congrats on the Canali - looks really nice! First time I ever saw a tag that didn't add up to 100% though. Wonder what the other 10% is?
