I concur with all, tailcoat kicks ass. I once found two very similar tailcoats in Brian's size at an antique store. There was a theater program in the pocket of one dated 1928. I was hot on buying it but the owner had just gotten it in, hadn't priced it yet and was closing up for the night (actually had reopened just for me). Is didn't want to push him. Sadly, it was far from home and I haven't been back.

there was a dude in the unofficial trade post thread looking for something very similar about 1.5 months ago. Would be a shame not to connect those dots.
No finds today but a retina-burning, rule violating thrift fit occurred. Luckily, no pictures. I feel like an addict that's on a binge: I went all waywrn, and am not back off the wagon onto nutty fits. Aw, well. YOLO, right? Wtf do we buy this shit if we're not going to have fun!
