One store, not bad. All of the suits are in the EU52, US 41-42 S-R range. 35-36 pants.

 

BB Golden Fleece Staple Navy-The lining at the collar is coming apart a bit

Trussini, probably the best suit of the bunch, it looks like everything is hand done.

I've been trying to be a bit more picky lately - left behind a J Press orphan, passed on several Brooks sport coats, etc.  Here's what the weekend yielded:

 

Three pairs of Bills Khakis, 2x M2P, 1 M3

 

 

BB Seersucker

 

 

Polo Ralph Lauren Silk Blazer Made in USA

 

 

 

This is the first time I've seen anything by Cable Car Clothiers, so I had to pick it up.

 

.

.

Saw an Oxxford suit on Friday with several badly repaired holes.  Passed.  Found an Oxxford suit on Saturday in perfect condition.  Score.

 

 

Who makes Stuart's Choice?  Made in England, 13D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Picked up some vintage British Walkers for myself - v-cleat, nailed heels, etc.  Toe was a little squarish, but they fit quite well.  Regretting not picking up the other pair.  

 

 

 

Salvatore Farragamo for the big guys.  15D.  

 

 

 

And then there were these.  James Reid of Santa Fe. Alligator and Buffalo belts, with sterling silver buckles, keeper and tip.  Retail on the buckles is about $630 each, the belts are $110 and $350.

Also my family crisis is better and I should be able to ship and get back out in the field tomorrow

you still need to get a suit that corresponds to your chest measurement, but you have to find a maker that cuts wide enough shoulders for your new physique. Related, this is why I'm afraid to work out. God forbid I get too big for my ToJ.

^ not the best reason not to work out Casey. Just a better excuse to buy more clothes later!

Nice haul!

Grenson.

I'll have to post better pictures later, but I thought I'd throw these up quickly. Today was my first day interning at Spoo's house. biggrin.gif

Kidding, these weren't thrift finds, but I feel I got a great price on all of them together. I can't quite remember one of the names for the pattern though...anyone familiar with the scarf ties? I have two that have a native themed print....and I think the pattern starts with an "N," but I honestly can't remember. I'll get pictures later.
