Ah, you're the second one that asks that exact same questionsmile.gif.

I am 32 myself and these are just too big...

 

 

Meanwhile, another find:

Burberry's Vintage Wool Vest, made in Western Germanysmile.gif. That was a part of a suit too, but I've only managed to get the jacket and vest - no pantsplain.gif.

MINT CONDITION, except two small marks, not visible when worn.I think they should come off after dry clean - I just don't have a good one in my neighborhood. Label on jacket says 106.

I can sell to anyone interested this vest alone, or with jacket.

P.S. The jacket is on sale here, you can check the photos in my classifieds.

Authenticity check please? I've found Coach belts before, but never in this style. The emblem has always been horizontal and I've never seen a big X.

Ties:

 

 

I got the Joseph & Lyman because it seemed like a nice spring tie.

 

 

A first for me: Filson size 48 (definitely not my size). I passed on a vintage ('80s) Abercrombie Safari shirt in the same size.

 

 

 

Another first. Check another Row tailor off the list:

 

(I'm pretty sure this is cashmere, or at least a high-cashmere blend.) It's probably around the same size as the Filson.

The X probably signifies that the belt is a factory 2nd.

Typically the TJ Maxx Coach surcingles have the X stamp.

The double breasted Burstow & Logsdail suit I found a while back was way more badass (*cough* ebay *cough*), but that firm doesn't seem to have the same level of name cachet as Poole.

You seem to have an assortment of random clothing knowledge that I seriously appreciate. Thank you for posting here.

Sorry if this is a repeat post but apparently our thrift muse ryan macklemore has sold out, doing a Nordstrom wedding video advert. Yeah that's the man himself.

ANd his own song.



GUess that excludes him from what looks to be an awesome thrift formalwear thread (all I have is the j. press shirt and I keep looking and looking!!!! but if I eventually build a tux-y thing i'll poast)

Headed out. Wish me luck. Hope to hit 2-3 stores before my night job.

Today's fit. Spring has apparently exploded onto my fit.

Deets: Samuelsohn suit from Dex (dual vented at the back)
Eton shirt, also from Dex I believe
vintage untipped tie made for a local menswear shop
Unknown sq, hand rolled
Trafalgar belt from Spoo
Florsheim Royal Imperials from Easy

CHET: I had a robo pose, I assure you, since this one I actually paid to get tailored. But it accidentally got deleted. Looked pretty damn good too, dammit!

In other news, I did a rigorous regression analysis with multiple Taylor polynomials and Monte Carlo modeling analysis. It turns out I can determine, to a scientific degree of certainty the exact number of fucks given today. If you're curious, click to view. No, really. Check it out. I think the answer will surprise you (Click to show)

Not to get too derailed, but I'm not sure how any artist can make money these days without doing that sort of thing. Folks swap music without paying for it like they swap social diseases. If an album is a Top Ten seller for longer than a month, it's considered a blockbluster. YouTube is a veritable free jukebox, and Pandora ain't much better. There must be a business model out there, I just don't understand it.
