Damn....I've been doing this the hard way too. Thanks for the tip.

Sorry, Ian, but you're wrong here. If we want to keep discussing it, though, this isn't the right thread.

To put an end to this..... it was tagged one size too big, thought it might of worked as it was a slimmer fitting model but no, it was TOO BIG. Thanks for all the help guys....back to thrifting!

Went to cycling swap meet yesterday. Picked up three pairs of shorts and a book I've been after.

Picked up a nice linen just in time for the warmer weather and some more high end denim. I had to pass on some lorenzini and Zegna 15/38. The arms were around 32-33" frown.gif

Polo Italy, 42 L.

 

The pattern seemed sport-coat like enough (it can't possibly be an orphan, can it?), and it was half off.

Finding some good stuff recently. Spring cleaning?

PRL tan FF pants. Made in Italy. 35W I hate NWOT but these may be it. Legs are super long and the previous owner did a sh***y job in hemming these. Used straight stitch white thread. There's about 3-4" excess fabric on the inside of the leg. horizontal like pockets.

St Andrews suit! 38ish, i think. Charcoal. Medium weight wool. I think this suit has a minor issue like a side seam/belt loop separating but I can't remember. Easy fix I'm pretty sure.

These shoe trees may have gone with the JM Westons since I picked them up at the same store, but it's really hard to get them in there. they are tagged 10.5 (shoes are 11). I tried to squeeze them in there but didn't want to apply too much force. They have no springs or anything like the woodlores I'm used to.

^^^^^ Those Polo Pants are NWOT. They are temporarily hemmed at the factory like that. Great finds all the way around.

Rogue leather jacket. Size S.

Not exactly my thing. But it fits well and maybe my wife will think I look like Noel Gallagher.
