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

 

Don't know if you are willing to pay retail, but Brooks Brothers has a Gatsby line.

My 4 favorite items are a Kiton navy db jacket, grey with white with white windowpane custom Zegna jacket and Brioni navy pinstripe 3 piece, and most recently a Hickey Freeman custom burgundy jacket 3/2 unlined with gorgeous MOP buttons from 1977.

The items I wear the most are PRL salmon chinos, light blue Rubinacci shirt, Varvatos black chukkas, Church's black tassel loafers, and vintage brown crocodile loafers

Only able to get to two stores a week tops right now, thankfully today's stop yielded a few fun things.

 

Gray chambray-ish Polo with cool throat latch. Worn Facconable s/s but colorful & linen so this time of year figure someone might be pleased. Minty Uniqlo, figured wth, I'll see if it fits. Paul & Shark s/s, first time seeing, n/a.

 

 

 

Also got the okay for FWB (full weight bearing) as tolerated, so it's cane time, baby. Getting my medical cane tomorrow, but when I thrift or E-thrift a sharp looking one I'll be sure to do a triumphant upright thrift fit photo.

Hey Cincinnati thrifters, were any of you at the Goodwill on Springfield Pike around 8:30? Not often I see somebody rocking shell wingtips, thought maybe it was one of us.

My favorite finds:

Clothing: Nearly new Lucchese kangaroo hide boots

Other: ESWAT Arcade game.
post #69862 of 121754

Favourite thrifted item is probably my Corneliani grey suit. First nice item that fit me perfect, also the first orphan I ever reunited.

 

One I wear the most often would probably be an Oliver Spencer or Filippa K shirt.

Not feeling the shades with this one, man. Feel like some big ass aviators would be better.

Anyone need some dress boots? I picked up these made in Italy J&M boots, but they don't fit. 9.5D.

I'm uploading some pics of a few recent finds but before I forget... if anybody is prepared to go all-in and rock some red Brooks Bros corduroy pants in Hudson fit W36 L30, let me know and I can swing back and proxy at cost plus ship. They're not a super bright medium RED!, but they're pretty bold. Pretty similar color to these  pents on ebay, maybe just a touch darker.

I've only encountered four or so Pinks in my size, but every damn one of them had worn through the fabric at the collar tips. Is that a thing with Pinks? It's been pretty disappointing to find that on some otherwise nice shirts.

Hmm, I left a Corneliani orphan today, gray, Super 110s, looked recent and fit pretty well. Combed the entire store including the women's section but couldn't find the pants. Now I'm thinking I should go back and cop it anyway.

That place is a waste...haven't bought anything there in well over a year. Being that's their central distribution center, I think it gets hit hard daily.

If it's solid gray, don't. They can't be worn as sport coats. And if it's a selling thing, Corneliani-branded doesn't sell well enough (their full suit ebay value is significantly undervalued, imho) to make it worthwhile.

I've been there twice. Found my only 2 Hermes ties ever. Everything else was complete crap though.

post #69870 of 121754

Only got to hit one place on the way home.

 

Found an absolutely mint burgandy Coach belt with the tag still on it (size 40 - my size).

 

 

 

Also found the largest piece of fabric perhaps ever utilized by Zegna.  EU68.
