The tweed is 2/3 of a suit. I know because I saw that exact suit at a Florida Marshalls in December. It was priced at $550, and included FF pants. I tried it on, but it was too small in the chest. And, to me, it's a bit bold to wear twice.

At a local GW there was a light beige Pal Zileri DB full suit (85/15 wool/cashmere). It looked a bit dated with really wide lapels and probably 44 - 46. Unfortunately it also had a small dime sized stain on one Cuff that looked to be a chocolate smear or something. It is too big for me but I really want to improve my suit collection. The stain looks like it'll come out but do you think I'd be able to get it cleaned and trade it here on SF? Or very least flip on ebay? The price was $19.99.

Good pass.

Thanks for saving me. I was seriously thinking about going back for it today.

Bit dated + a bit big + a small stain + a double sawbuck = a good pass 99 times out of 100.

It's hard at first to pass on stuff, but the longer you go being picky, the easier it gets. I'm to the point where I can pass on an iffy Brioni or RLPL item with a "shucks, would have been nice if that had worked out" rather than losing some sleep over whether I should have picked it up.

Much obliged. The best article of clothing I have is a Zegna cloth SC so I'm still scratching trying to up my wardrobe. Thank you again for setting my mind at ease.

Note....this will be said in third person for effect.

 

Capnwes just dropped a Scavenger Scatter Bomb!

Anyone care to contend? Still about 12 hours left in this round!

Damn! I understand this is only 2/3 of the full piece, but damn. I found a Lands End Charter Collection herringbone tweed jacket the other day that is in great condition and fits me (no that's not really a brag). But I wish I had found something like this!

Yes, doesn't look exotic...if it was gator, croc or something then $125 would have some meat on the bone...not much left on regular calfskin

+1 and those vamps look thrashed. Wonder why someone would pay huge money for great boots then not keep them on trees.
