Me too. But where the hell did I put it....



Anyone know if you can convert a 6 over 1 buttoned double breasted jacket to a 6 over 2? Its just a matter of lining up the bottom 4 buttons, right? I mean assuming the lapel roll doesn't get all screwy. But setting that aside, the button holes are already in line. So aligning the buttons themselves shouldn't affect anything. Right?

Talking to my fiance today about thrifting. She asked me what my favorite piece of clothing I've found, and what is the piece I've used the most. I had to think about it for a bit...

My favorite is the new MTM suit that fits me perfectly and is made from super 160s Loro piana micron cloth.

The piece I use the most is the West is Dead burnt orange chinos. I never noticed but its my go to pants for school or hanging out.

What about you guys?

Favorite thrifted item? That I kept?

In going with my vintage early 90s Tevas with the crinkle rubber soles. They sure as hell aren't SF approved, but when I put them on, I get warm fuzzy flashbacks to high school.

Denim continues to be the only thing that I'm finding. These are a first for me, the stronghold straight cut with repro pocket design and washed out selvedge. I don't know much about the stronghold other than they're pricey.

If it's smaller than a period on a printed paper, I believe it's called a Deer Tick.biggrin.gif

Invited to a Great Gatsby themed birthday on May 10th where we're supposed to get dressed up all Gatsby-like, go see the movie, and then party afterward...

 

Need Gatsby-esq attire in my size stat! Or at least advice.

Bet Spoo could sell the heck out of a AMAZEBALLS Deer Tick Suit.

You best bet is probably 70s era suit taken in as far as it goes. That's probably the closest to 20s era you'll find.

You could look at the gatsby collection at BB but that would be expensive.
