I have seen socks. And pajamas. And underwear. I've never bought them. I've said it before: I do not buy unmentionables secondhand.
These were new at TJ Maxx.
Cap: Those shamorcks would have been PERFECT.
I'm thinking what I want are brass colored buttons that look like actual buttons. I think that would look killer, esp with maybe a slightly contrast colored stitching on some or all of the buttons.
Brag for me. Hit my local over the weekend and picked up some trafalgars. As part of their $2 per bag special. Along with this killer waistcoat (that's too small and available)
But that's not the best part. Found out that they were putting out brand new inventory today. Here's what I found:
Daks 6 over 2 double breast, dual vent, ticket pocket blazer. Available.
St. Laurie glenplaid jacket. I say jacket because I'm pretty sure it's an orphan. Now, why would I mention this here? As an object lesson on what happens when you thrift in a rush. My eyes saw "St. Laurie." My brain read "San Andrea" or St. Andrews. Oops.
It fits me well. I will likely troll the store for a couple of weeks looking for the trou. Failing that, I will try to swap the buttons for some brown horn, hoping to make it a SC, but I think the pattern is too muted to pull off.
But this is the gem of the day. Noname tweed suit, ticket pocket, dual vent, flat front, reasonably proportioned trousers.
NOT MY FREAKING SIZE, DAMMIT!!

Now, if I only knew someone who was a 40L and could rock the everloving hell out of a suit like this......
