I'm just looking forward to wearing all of the awesome cool weather clothes I've been thrifting this year.

Me too, I have been eyeing an Isaia jacket in my closet I bought a few months ago that is awesome. While I love summer and despise snow (even though I live in the snow belt of MA). I can't wait for fall so I can break out my non-linen stuff.

Lousy, lousy day today. I never really understood how, many of my best spots are run by Jewish ladies. Today is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, so they were all closed.

NM I did manage to salvage some very slight crumbs of consolation.

Ties by Alain Fiuret and Ascot (L-R)
Untitled

Vintage ties. soporific one from Ferragamo and two horrendous JPGs. I picked up the latter to find out if they are flippable; checked on eBay and still none the wiser - JPG prices run from $10-$300. Leaving aside questions of taste, is there a victim, er market, for these two?
Untitled

I also picked up a brand new suit by Oxford, sadly it only has one 'x' and is a fused made in China number. Still it was only $10 and I figure somebody will give me at least that for it. i shan't scare you with photos of it.

Having subjected you gentlemen to this, I feel I also have something for Atonement. Maybe tomorrow.

I think the Made in China is not a deal breaker like some would think. The Jack Spade stuff I've come across seems like really good quality at a slight premium. If they were to have those shirts made in Italy or some place else my guess is their price point would go up past their target market.

Morning SFers. Out for a Dallas area thrift. starting in Plano and working my way around the area. Any Dallas people Irving GW has a bunch of high quality suits like Oxxford and Canalis in 44R with minor moth holes.

It's all good man. When I started, I paid over the odds for alterations for a Hugo Boss (I know...) sport coat that was just never meant to fit me. Don't even think I wore it once. It happens.

 

You might want to consider whether it's worth it to get BB shirts altered though. You can buy brand new BB shirts in slim and extra slim fit on sale for probably not much more than you paid for that, when you include alterations costs. Just something to think about.

 

In other news, watch out Toronto. I'm hitting some thrifts today. In the meantime, here's a discount fit:

 

 

 

Jacket - Obscur, 70% off at sample sale

Shirt - ModernTailor $20 special

Jeans - APC, discount

Shoes - Moma, Yoox

Cute little cat - free

And:
RLPL plaid wool/angora flannel pants, made in Italy.
RRL extra fine wool chunky shawl collar navy sweater (that fits too)
Brioni dress shirt
Loro piana cotton+cashmere for SFA pants, unhemmed unworn.

And I came home to find my SuitSupply sc waiting for me....good day!

I shall try and post pics tomorrow...the RLPL pants I'll make you all drool.

 

Photos of some of the above:

Burnt orange unhemmed SFA LP pants

 

RLPL wool+angora wonderfully soft plaid flannel pants (question: these fit me in every way except the waist/seat, which is likely 3+" too big. Would you have them tailored and keep, or flip?

 

Charvet and Brioni Sport
