YES! One of the holy grains of swd finds. Up there with visvim. If you feel like passing them on to a thread member, and are a 33ish, send me a pm. However they will fetch very good eBay money, the likes of which I couldn't offer you.

Big shout out to STEVE KANE for not one, but two beautiful sport coats that fit like they were made for me! Wore the cashmere today but the Camel Hair may have to wait until fall :).

Nothing that exciting from a lunch time stop. An Hermes tie (yay!) with a big coffee spill on the blade (boo), a couple of useful shirts (Etro, Pink, BB) and a staple charcoal BB suit (untagged, guessing it is around a 44-46). I'll get some picks up after work.

Probably best to post in the tailors thread if you haven't already, but off the top of my head, the shoulders do look slightly wide for your frame.  Pants need hemming, but the back could probably be cleaned up a bit as well. Jacket length is good, but the quarters are really closed/square looking.  Makes you look a bit boxy. Some nipping at the waist might help the silhouette.  Beautiful suit though.  IMHO worth a trip or two to the tailor's to try and get it just right.

Agreed. Some appropriate footwear would have been useful re: pants length, though.

Is that unvented? before you put a bunch of money into making it fit correctly, make sure you are cool with wearing a slightly dated style. just my $0.02

Hermes with coffee stain on blade (kinda visible in middle of 2nd photo, more prominent in real life). I think if folded carefully the stain is invisible, will have to play. All available for trade.

 

 

 

 

Pink (16.5 36):

 

Etro (burgundy and light blue with grey paisley; tagged 38)

 

Brooks Brothers Suit (measures 23" pit to pit, trousers are 18" across the waist). Single vent, great nick. Any information about age/model type from union tag? Not that exciting, but its a start.

Bought these shoes yesterday for 8 bucks total smile.gif
Any suggestions on combinations for the brown and black ones? I want to make sure I don't put it with the wrong color suit and it look stupid.

Black and brown goes with almost anything but from the pic, the pair on the right doesn't look exactly like brown...Maybe I need my glasses...

I hit a couple of GW's while I was out shipping some stuff. I'm not disappointed.

 

Pretty nice Hickey Freeman, great pattern.

Another HF but with Loro Piana Super 130's

 

Special edition(?) Member's Only jacket

Baller Brioni polo, engraved MOP buttons

Decent TB linen shirt with nice thick buttons

RT Polo, MOP buttons

Sick RG polo, it has the same green and blue pattern on the sleeves as well.

Gaudy TR shoes but they sell well, so why not?

 

Also picked up some okay ties, nothing really exciting enough to post.

Hey guys! I'm back in Maryland and off my jet lag, and I've tried my hands at MD thrifts... they're... horrendously disappointing. The staff staples tags to lapels, not that the suits were worth the 40+ dollars they charge for them anyways. Incredibly lame :( Only finds that were anything close to decent were ruined (AJ Suit and Lorenzini shirt). The only goodwill I've been to (By Dobbin) is pathetic. I declare fail. Squared. 

MD Thrifters: Recommend me hunting grounds within half an hour of Clarksville, MD (Howard County) that are big, well-stocked, and won't make me want to facepalm when I see their prices?
