Gosh where do I start - my worst fit ever and the suit is really nice - it is a Thomas Fordus in Latin . Not thrifted but kopped for under $600. Shirt was Valentino boutique thing I picked up for $2, Tie was Brioni that Saks sold to me for $20 due to fabric pull on reverse side (does not bother me).
Damn, I cannot tie a tie either anymore, how the shitting heck do you guys get your dimples? Oh yeah, I know there is a sleeve issue as well ala too short. Reason for the fit is my tailor said she can only let the arms out 1" - do you think 1" will do it?
Well Well Well, I cannot tell very well from the side of your face but I am right now 99% certain we sized each other up in a thrift store a long long time ago (well, about a year ago actually). I was hitting LA at the time and I remember seeing a young buck going through clothes like an insane MFer. I am 99% sure the person I saw was you, and I know you noticed me because you looked over a couple of times with a "get the fuck out of my thrift store look". I thrift without a cart or carrier - it is huge bundles of clothes reamed over one arm with spare arm checking through stuff. LOL it is a small world dude

Around 2000, I think. I just traded to a member a nice merino pinstripe from them (particular line started in 1998) that was really nice; picked it up for myself to have altered hence the pickup, was leery of trying to trade here and didn't want to get stuck with it. Good stuff, though, if the styling works.
Britches made some seriously nice stuff, but it's under-appreciated and nigh impossible to flip if that's your goal. I snap up whatever I find that fits me, though. They went out of business a long time ago--mid 90s, if I'm not mistaken, but don't hold me to it.
Keep 'em rollin, MartiniGirl! If just a tad too tall for Brianpore, hit me up for slim 36R
DM7, back with a banG!
The wpl number is the key . Made in the USA for RL by the Joseph P company I think. I have three of these suits the shoulders run big on theses. They are not as well made as the older blue label.
JOS J PIETRAFESA CO INC looked the wpl number again.
